Viego, the Ruined King, is here. Patch 11.2 is going live today and with it we’re getting an exciting new champion, whose story will follow League of Legends fans throughout the year. Of course, the main character of it all has to be the first champion released in 2021: The Ruined King Viego.

Viego is a jungle skirmisher who can take over the soul of those of the dead. This means that once he kills an opponent he is able to ‘become them’ and use their abilities. You thought Sylas stealing your ultimate was rad? Well, now Viego can use any ability from the champion he becomes.

What else is coming with patch 11.2 though?

Sticking with the theme of the Ruined King, there are also a bunch of ‘ruined skins’ coming out, which represent champions who have been overtaken by the black mist. Be prepared for Ruined Draven, Shyvana and Karma.

Those aren’t the only skins that are available with Patch 11.2. Fitting with the Chinese New Year are the Shan Hai skins, which are going to be given to Neeko, Nautilus, Jhin and Cho’Gath. These are incredibly cool skins that any fan of eastern Asian culture should look into.

We’ve already outlined some prominent champion changes last week, but which items are buffed or nerfed this patch?

Shurelya’s Battlesong has been adjusted and grants the champion 40 AP, though the added health is decreased from 350 to 200 and does not give any more bonus movement speed. The base mana regen is increased from 50% to 100%.


Phantom Dancer and Runaan’s Hurricane got the same changes with a price increase of 2600 instead of 2500 gold. The items will now give champions 45% instead of 40% attack speed. ADC Champions like Kai’Sa and Ashe thank Riot.

Hextech Rocketbelt’s boost of movement speed has been decreased since champions like Ekko could just abuse this item and become far too strong in the late game.

Of course, there are more changes as well, which we’ve outlined before in our previous Patch 11.2 article, so check that out for more detail on some items as well as champions!
