League of Legends patch 7.11: Kindred rework, new Rek'sai ult and Chemtech Tryndamere

League of Legends' next big content patch is 7.11, introducing massive changes to Kindred, as well as a host of balance and bug fixes. Rek'sai has her own set of major switch ups, including a new ult, and Maokai plus Zac are still feeling the effects of their reworks. Have a look below for all the information we've got, straight from the PBE.

LoL Patch 7.11 Release Date And Downtime

We don't know the exact release date for patch 7.11 yet, but the schedule is bi-weekly so expect it on Wednesday, May 31. We'll update when Riot do, but keep an eye on the server maintenance page for the latest updates.

LoL Patch 7.11 Balance Changes

That out of the way, let’s start with the really important bit, shall we? What you need to remember is that stuff on the PBE like this is neither guaranteed to happen, nor to be in the next patch even if it does. This is what the folks over at Riot are thinking about doing. We’ve got the numbers on what’s changing, and a general guideline on which way each champion, item, mastery, summoner spell or rune is moving.

LoL Patch 7.11 New Skins

Second most important: cosmetics. Lovely, gorgeous cosmetics. Bit more of a visual medium this, so we’ve grabbed the best videos of each skin, as well as a lovely pic or two. Some are relatively simple changes, while others are total reworks of every part of the champion outside the gameplay numbers - new VO, new animations, new particles and the rest. It’s generally defined by how much they cost, so we’ve detailed that as well.

Chemtech Tryndamere

Chemtech Tryndamere in-game

975 RP. Details from Riot.

 

Here's their splash:

LoL Patch 7.11 Login Screen

Each patch has its own login screen with unique music. They're always fairly excellent, though 7.11's hasn't appeared yet - expect it in the next week or so. It will likely be based around Chemtech Tryndamere.

Doom Bots of Doom

Looks like the Doom Bots are on their way back to Summoner's Rift as a rotating game mode. Here's the preview for the testing period.

League of Legends missions

Missions have now entered full testing. See below for the leaks up until this point, and here's Riot's official thread about it.

Continuing from the assets found during the Patch 7.9 PBE, further expansions on the system that will be used for tracking rewards for various out-of-game related events have been added in 7.11. So far there's some new concept art as shown on S@20, and Riot have released a huge devblog about the feature.

10 bans in Ranked

10 bans in ranked

10 bans is coming to ranked, hopefully adding a little bit of extra diversity to the metagame. It's due to release alongside patch 7.11 and is now up for testing. Here's Riot's thread about it and a bunch more info on how it will work. Other updates to the client include the ability to buy skins during champion select.

That's League of Legends patch 7.11. We'll update as and when we get more info, or we'll see you for patch 7.12 in the very near future. Let us know below if there's any vital info we missed!
