The League of Legends patch 12.6 is on the way. The patch will bring several changes and improvements to the game. Among these changes are the Mythic Essence, which will replace Gemstones, and the Mythic Shop. You can find seasonal mythic skins in this shop. Another change is the nerfing of Hecarim and Tryndamere.
Mythic Essence replaces Gemstones
The new currency in League of Legends is called Mythic Essence, and it is replacing Prestige Points and Gemstones. Mythic Essence is the new currency used to purchase mythic skins. Unlike Prestige Points, Mythic Essence doesn’t expire, and you can earn it from any source. You can get it from battle passes, missions, and even loot boxes. Obtaining ten Mythic Essence can cost you 100.
In patch 12.6, Gemstones and Prestige Points will be replaced by Mythic Essence. Existing Gemstones will be converted into Mythic Essence automatically. The new currency can be obtained from the same places as the current ones. Mythic Essence will also be the new currency for a mythical cosmetic called the Ashen Knight Pyke.
Mythic Shop introduces seasonal mythic skins
The Mythic Shop is introducing seasonal mythic skins for League of Legend’s upcoming patch 12.6, and it will also feature a new currency called Mythic Essence. This currency will replace Prestige Points and Gemstones, and it will be able to be used to purchase exclusive Mythic skins and accessories. This new currency will also be able to be obtained through a special challenge that will be released on March 31, 2018.
In addition to new mythic skins, the Mythic Shop will also be the source of Mythic accessories, such as icons and borders. Players can purchase these items to customize their characters, and some of these accessories are free of charge. A few of the available skins include the Hextech skin and the Prestige skin, which will be available for one month and three months, respectively.
Hecarim and Tryndamere get nerfs
Two champions will suffer nerfs in the next patch: Hecarim and Tryndamere. Both champions have had overpowering presence in high-level play, but now Riot has decided to rein them in. The Q – Rampage – and E – Devastating Charge – abilities are now less damaging at higher ranks, making them weaker in both early and late game. Tryndamere will also have a longer cooldown on her ultimate.
The nerfs to Hecarim and Tryndamere are due to come into effect on March 30. The new patch will also give Azir a health per level buff, and Darius’ R – Noxian Guillotine will now deal more damage. In addition, Jax will get more base health and damage. Nidalee will also see a buff to her W – Bushwhack and W – Pounce. Additionally, Primal Surge will now cost less mana.
Changes to Swain’s passive
The latest PBE test server for League of Legends patch 12.6 has revealed some changes to Swain’s passive. First, the passive is no longer worth bonus damage when pulling in an immobilized champion. While the buff still counts for a soul fragment, it will no longer deal any extra damage. Instead, it will offer a soul fragment to the champion being pulled in.
Another change that will affect Swain’s passive is a reduction in mana costs and cooldowns. This means that he will be able to probe opponents more effectively in early games. Furthermore, the cooldown of Swain’s ultimate will be reduced to 120, 100, and 80 seconds depending on his ability level. The changes are scheduled to go live later this week on the PBE.
Changes to rental system
The new League of Legends patch 12.6 is out now and it brings with it several changes. One of those changes is a change to the rental system, which allows you to rent items for seven days. Previously, you would have to spend a shard to rent an item, but now it can only be rented for seven days.
Previously, you could rent champions and skins to play in the game. However, this system was removed because it was poorly implemented and there were few users. But, it could be coming back in a later patch.
