Significant bug fixes could shift the meta.
Riot Games will release a small Legends of Runeterra update at the beginning of August, resolving several important bug fixes while continuing to monitor the Forces from Beyond meta.
Patch 3.12 isn’t a scheduled balance patch but the LoR team is working on adjustments for the next update. The Aug. 3 update will instead focus on problematic bugs within the digital card game while “keeping an all-seeing eye on how the meta is evolving,” according to Riot. In addition to bug fixes, LoR will temporarily go offline on Aug. 8 for the Americas and EMEA regions.
The Patch 3.12 bug fixes are significant, potentially having an impact on the 3.11 Forces from Beyond meta. Darkness archetype players can rejoice since Ixtali Sentinel will now hit the enemy Nexus with their effect, as opposed to fizzling out. And Kai’Sa will no longer count Elusive as a keyword upon Sharpsight getting played.
Here’s every LoR bug fix getting resolved through Patch 3.12, according to Riot.
Patch 3.12 is scheduled to go live on Aug. 3. Riot has not revealed a date for the upcoming Legends of Runeterra balance patch.
