League of Legends patch 12.1 notes – Arcane-themed Firelight Ekko, Elderwood skins

The first patch of the League of Legends 2022 season has hit the PBE. League of Legends patch 11.24 has headed to live servers to make its debut on the Rift and, following a bunch of teases from Riot Games on social media, the latest batch of new content has begun trickling onto the testing grounds ready for patch 12.1’s arrival in the live game soon. Let’s take a look.

First up, we’ve got yet another champion skin inspired by the MOBA game’s tremendously successful new spin-off Netflix show, Arcane. This time, it’s The Boy Who Shattered Time in for a themed skin, with Riot having previewed Firelight Ekko on League’s Twitter channels ahead of his arrival on the PBE. A good thing, too, given his presence in the show as a member of the Firelights gang – and it seems his new look draws on his hoverboard and mask from the series. We’ve also got some new Elderwood skins on the way, this time for lucky champs Gnar and Rek’Sai.

As is is very often the case when a patch has only just hit the PBE, we don’t have any balance changes to check out just yet. However, we know Riot tends to post an early preview at some point in the days following, with the full round of tweaks hitting the PBE shortly afterwards, so we should have a good idea of which champions, items, or runes are in for adjustments very soon. Keep checking back as we’ll include everything you need to know in the notes below.
