The nights grow darker and the air chillier as we make our way towards the end of League of Legends’ 2021 patch schedule. League of Legends patch 11.20 has sailed onto the MOBA game’s live battlegrounds and its follow-up has now hit the PBE for its fortnight of testing. So, let’s see what’s in store for League of Legends patch 11.21, shall we?
If you’ve been keeping a close eye on League’s Twitter channels, you’ve probably had an early peek at the batch of new skins headed its way with 11.21. This patch is all about the Dragonmancer alternate universe, with new styles for Kai’Sa, Karma, Thresh, Volibear, and Yasuo on the way. The latter two are particularly special, with Volibear getting a Prestige Edition, while Yasuo’s two skins are legendary variants, bringing new voiceovers, as well as new animations, VFX, SFX, and more. You can check all of these out in the New Champion Skins section below.
Elsewhere, we’ve got a VFX update coming up for The Dark Sovereign, Syndra with 11.21. “Similar to the previous VFX updates we’ve made in the past (Ziggs, Zilean, Malzahar, etc), we’re working on updates to the visual effects (VFX) of champions whose spell effects are in need of some love,” senior visual effects artist Riot Sirhaian explains. “Our aim is to get their VFXs to current League standards and improve gameplay clarity. This time, it’s Syndra’s turn, for 11.21’s PBE patch!”
