The chemtech drake is no more, Zeri has been released, and we’re already thinking about the next champion that is going to hit summoner’s rift. But what other changes has Riot planned? Well let’s not look too far ahead and see what is new in LoL Patch 12.03.
We know that Ahri will be getting a visual update already, but there are quite a lot of other changes that will affect your games in the coming patch. So sit back, pop open a cold one and go through the early LoL patch 12.03 notes with us.
System Adjustments in LoL Patch 12.03
Let us start off with the big fish which is the system adjustment list this time around. In a tweet, Riot Phlox stated that this patch will focus on adjusting the fighter system to be less health skewed. What that means exactly will be revealed soon.
These are all the items getting an overhaul in LoL Patch 12.03
|Maw of Malmortius|
|Blade of the Ruined King|
Champion Nerfs in LoL Patch 12.03
There are quite a few champions on the nerf list this patch as well. Did anyone even expect Zeri not to get a nerf after she’s been popping off on the rift right after her debut? Hardly. She isn’t the only champion on the list though.
These are all the champions getting nerfed in LoL Patch 12.03
Lightning Crash (R)
Piercing Darkness (Q)
|Akshan||Dirty Fighting (Passive)|
|Janna (with Glacial)|
|Twisted Fate||Wind Cards (Q)|
Stacked Deck (E)
Champion Buffs in LoL Patch 12.03
This is probably the shortest list of all the changes being made in this patch. Two champions are being buffed. Does this mean that every other champion is balanced right now? Or are there just way too many overpowered champions and these two are the only ones struggling?

Some context for the Nami adjustment - tried out some medium scope changes to see if I could get some good feeling changes to her passive.— Blake Smith (@Squad5lol) January 24, 2022
Eotd she didn't have enough power budget for the changes (she's already strong). But we liked it enough to do a small change to the passive. https://t.co/55Fn6a940c
Champion Adjustments in LoL Patch 12.03
Now let’s move on to the champion adjustments. We’ve already touched upon the Ahri changes that will hit the rift quite soon, but one more champion will also be getting adjusted in this patch. Ahri isn’t the only one with a few bigger changes coming her way.
