League of Legends patch 12.9 notes are starting to make their way into the Public Beta Environment (PBE). Although League patch 12.8 has just been released, we already have a pretty good idea of what Riot Games is working on for the popular MOBA game.
While you wait for new content to populate the PBE, you have a lot to check in in the latest League of Legends patch. Riot overhauled Swain’s kit to make him a more attractive choice in the current meta, while 18 other champions have also been modified. If you’re looking for an extra visual flair, Riot has added a nice set of Solar and Lunar Eclipse skins for Kayle, Sejuani, Sivir, Aatrox, and Senna.
While patch 12.9 is still in the early stages of development, you have a lot to do. Riot is working on a mid-level update for Taliyah that will be as extensive as Swain’s rework. You also get several new High Noon skins for the likes of Katarina, Leona, and others that make vampire hunter gothic champions look like. If that’s not your style, Riot has also added some icy skins to honor the Edward Gaming eSports team’s 2021 World Championship.
Without further ado, here is the League of Legends patch 12.9 notes (Hello, surrender at 8 pm!).

“My people have been scammed. My goal is to collect what is owed to us, ”says the Outsider, pinning his dagger into a wanted poster of the Mechanical Devil. His eyes burn like burning coal as he stares every dusty traveler in his gaze: “And I hear you are going to skip Sulfur Rail, Harbingers. If you want to defeat this devil, I want to enter.
here is the Midday Katarina art sketches:
High Noon Leona – 1820 RP
“The Lady of Casa Solari raises her chin against the scorching wind. Further on is the safety of her family: the Sulfur Rail, which carries the stolen family fortune, shaking the desert. The only thing standing in their way is the Mechanical Devil himself. His sword hums like cicadas in the twilight. Butterflies gather. It’s time for the Heralds to ride.
here is the Midday Leona art sketches:
Midday Mordekaiser – 1350 RP
“Few meet the Mechanical Devil and live to tell the story. They describe a colossus: all steel and gears, fueled by hellfire and fierce enough to scare a man’s soul out of his skin. He is the king of the Sulfur Railway, who rules the train to Hell from a throne of stolen gold and infernal iron. Eternal and unassailable.
here is the Midday Mordekaiser art sketches:
Midday Claw – 1350 RP
“Destiny is catching up with you, old friend,” says Talon, leaning back in his chair, predatory eyes glinting under the shadow of his hat. He still moves like a demon, even deformed and corrupted by angel blood like he is. His smile, sad and aware, has too many teeth: “The end is coming for all of us”.
here is the Midday claw And Launch art sketches:
High Noon Launch – 1350 RP
“There is nothing for a dead angel to do but resign himself to the pain. Varus contented himself with allowing Mordekaiser to carry him beyond the gates of hell himself … Until a disordered band of thieves broke his mourning. Varus now collects his bow once again, riding like a Herald. The time has come for him to take his revenge for the massacre of Heaven. “
