League of Legends-Patch 12.9 changes already meet the public beta environment (PBE), with optimizations to Olaf, Pyke, Sion and Taliyah, which are already in the wild. However, Riot Games has now supplemented his patch preview for the next update with further Champion changes and another nerf for Hullbreaker.
Game balance & pre-season leadership Matt ‘Phroxzon’ Leung-Harrison went on Twitter last night, to share the barebones circown for LOL-Patch 12.9, the buffs for brewing, hecarim, thresh and varus as well as nerfs for ahri, master yi, nidaleee, Renata Glasc and Rengar, in addition to the first wave of changes to Olaf, Pyke, Sion and Taliyah, who have already reached the PBE last week. He also notes that there will be some changes to renectone “to adapt his scaling over the season”.
[Email Protected] Moderator ‘Spideraxe’ also went on Twitter last night to share updates about the last round of the PBE changes, including a number of further changes to Taliyahein Larger Nerf to Sion’s zombie forms tower damage and details, for which the fresh nerf Hullbreaker uses passively.
According to the PBE, Hullbreaker will only add increased damage to attacks of champions, while all damage sources (including skills) previously benefited. This seems to be a difficult blow for Champions like Sion and Yorick, who have been shredding with Hullbreaker in hand for some time.
Here is the patch preview for 12.9! (MSI is on 12.8)
We carry out a big update to increase the durability of champions in Patch 12.10, so keep an eye out for the Quick Gameplay Thoughts on Friday!
Highlights are the Olaf and Taliyah changes that we look forward to finally getting them into their hands. pic.twitter.com/4jkdrld2nd

Although there is not much in the new patch, Phroxzone notes that this is intended due to the more violent durability changes that come in LOL-Patch 12.10. “The changes in 12.10 should increase the durability, which affects BURSTITE champions more,” he says. “That’s why we hesitate to adapt most of these champions in this patch.”
Although we have to wait and see what brings 12.10, we can at least comfort ourselves that in the meantime we will experience a few building specials less in our LOL ranking games.
