League of Legends 12.8 Patch Notes: Mid-Season Mayhem

The League of Legends 12.8 patch notes have been released, and there’s a lot of changes to consider as the 2022 Mid-Season Invitational approaches on May 10.

Multiple champions received changes, but the clear winner of patch 12.8 is Swain, the Noxian Grand General. All of Swain’s moves received an enhancement of some kind, from Death’s Hand dealing additional damage to Vision of Empire decreasing in mana cost. His ultimate Demonic Ascension has also been reworked, becoming a more potent move in the later stages of a match.

A quick look at the League of Legends 12.8 patch.

Other champion changes include Jinx losing 50 points of base health–dropping from 610 to 560–while Vladimir has his base armor stat increased from 23 to 27. The full League of Legends 12.8 patch notes are below.

The 12.8 patch will be the patch used in the 2022 League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational, bringing the top teams from around the world to Busan, South Korea for an international competition. The tournament begins May 10 and runs until May 29.

League of Legends is a 5v5 multiplayer online battle arena with over 150 champions to take into battle, each with their own ability sets. The game is available now on PC.

Mythic Content Overhaul

Showcase Milestones

Like Masterwork Milestones last patch, Showcase Milestones grant bonus rewards for purchasing event capsules, though the Showcase Milestone track can only be completed once. We’ve made significant changes to Showcase Milestones since they were originally announced! Showcase Milestones are now the best way to collect content from new Showcase releases.

We won’t document Showcase Milestone tracks in patch notes moving forward, but since this is the first one it’s worth walking through how the system works. To celebrate the occasion, the rewards for Eclipse Knights are a little sweeter than what future showcases will have on offer.

  • LAUNCH PARTY: When the Showcase begins, everyone will get a mission that rewards 1 Eclipse 2022 Capsule (which counts toward the reward track!) and 1 Eclipse 2022 Grab Bag! This is in addition to the normal free mission chain that launches during Showcase events.

    • 1 CAPSULE :: Eclipse Knight 2022 Icon

    • 3 CAPSULES :: Prestige Eclipse Knight Senna Emote + 5 Mythic Essence

    • 5 CAPSULES :: Random Eclipse 2022 Epic Skin Permanent (Lunar Eclipse Aatrox, Lunar Eclipse Senna, Solar Eclipse Sejuani, Sun-Eater Kayle) + 15 Mythic Essence

    • 10 CAPSULES : Random Eclipse 2022 Epic Skin Permanent + 20 Mythic Essence 15 CAPSULES :: Random Eclipse 2022 Epic Skin Permanent + 25 Mythic Essence

    • 20 CAPSULES :: Random Eclipse 2022 Epic Skin Permanent + Eclipse 2022 Grab Bag + 30 Mythic Essence

    • 25 CAPSULES :: 2 Eclipse 2022 Grab Bags + 30 Mythic Essence

    • TOTAL REWARDS :: 25 Eclipse Capsules + Eclipse Knight 2022 Icon + Prestige Eclipse Knight Senna Emote + All four Eclipse 2022 Epic Skin Permanents + 3 Eclipse 2022 Grab Bags + 125 Mythic Essence

Prestige Lunar Eclipse Senna

Prestige Lunar Eclipse Senna will be available in the Mythic Shop for 125 ME for the duration of the Eclipse Knights Showcase. (Conveniently, completing the Eclipse 2022 Showcase Milestone track grants 125 ME.) After that, she’ll be unavailable for direct ME purchase but will be added to loot drop and reroll pools without her debut loading screen border.

Adjustments to Masterwork Milestones

Our pre-launch tuning adjustments to Masterwork Milestones slightly undershot longterm Mythic Essence rates. We buffed the final milestone reward a few hours after activation last patch and are documenting it here for visibility.

25 MASTERWORK CHESTS :: 5 Mythic Essence and one 1350+ RP tier skin shard >>> 10 Mythic Essence and one 1350+ RP tier skin shard. We’re also shipping a couple more things this patch to make up for missing the mark.

  • RETROACTIVE REWARDS :: Players who completed the 25 Masterwork Chest milestone before the update will get 5 Mythic Essence for each time they completed it

  • FREEBIE :: Everyone will receive a mission granting 10 Mythic Essence

Piltover Clash

Team formation for the second weekend of Piltover Clash began on April 25, and the tournaments will be on April 30 and May 1.

Bugfixes & QoL Changes

  • Nexus turrets with active Objective Bounties will now correctly have bounty healthbar indicators and display bounty information in chat when pinged

  • Fixed the bug where Nexus hitboxes were unintentionally larger than they appeared

  • Fixed a rare bug that would permanently reduce a turret’s resistances if certain conditions were met when plating fell

  • Being in an enemy turret’s range with an enemy Sion, Kog’Maw, or Karthus passive zombie as it dies will no longer make that turret’s aggro switch to you

  • Ghost Poros have been restored and will once again grant normal vision, NOT true sight

  • QoL Change: Illaoi’s E – Test of Spirit will now grant assist credit, even if the Vessel does not take any damage

  • Fixed a bug where, if you casted Illaoi’s Q – Tentacle Smash during her E – Test of Spirit animation or while she was locked out of her abilities (e.g. in stasis), she would instantly change direction to face your cursor

  • Fixed a bug where Vessels spawned from Illaoi’s E – Test of Spirit would be invisible if the tethered champion was camouflaged and being revealed by a control ward

  • Fixed some strange Vessel interactions that would sometimes benefit Illaoi’s enemies upon expiring, like healing them if they had Omnivamp… :3

  • Fixed a bug where Illaoi’s W – Harsh Lesson-empowered basic attacks would not trigger nearby Tentacles to slam her target if she had an active spell shield

  • Fixed the bug where Taliyah would not be able to use her Passive – Rock Surfing for the rest of the game if someone broke her Banshee’s Veil spell shield while she was Rock Surfing again

  • Fixed a bug where, if an enemy champion got DUNKED by Sett’s R – The Show Stopper into Tahm Kench’s R – Devour, they would first reappear at the original Devour point before quickly sliding to the actual Regurgitate destination

  • Fixed an uncommon bug where Viego could become permanently attached to an ally champion if he possessed Yuumi under certain conditions

  • Sona will no longer be able to reset her basic attacks against wards by casting an ability while at full stacks of Passive – Power Chord

  • Fixed a bug where, if Elise casted E – Rappel on herself while an enemy champion was right next to her, she would ascend and immediately descend upon on them despite not having recasted the ability

  • Fixed a bug where, if you spammed Pantheon’s Q – Comet Spear or Sett’s E – Facebreaker while the ability was on cooldown, it would sometimes cancel your attacks and movements

  • Black Cleaver’s passive interactions have been fixed so that you will correctly gain only one stack of Carve per basic attack, even if you purchased Titanic Hydra first

  • Lulu’s interactions with Spellthief’s Edge and Spectral Sickle have been fixed so she will once again receive a stack of Tribute whenever Passive – Help, Pix! damages an enemy champion, too

  • Rengar will no longer receive a Navori Quickblades stack upon hitting a plant with a Q – Savagery- empowered basic attack

  • Axiom Arc’s passive has been fixed and will correctly grant Tahm Kench partial refunds on his R – Devour for scoring takedowns

  • Fixed a bug where Teemo couldn’t gain Manamune stacks if he had ranked up E – Toxic Shot at least once.

  • Fixed a bug where the Ornn Masterwork items Caesura and Eternal Winter did not grant the correct amounts of AP

  • Fixed a bug where certain skillshots would not play their hit confirmation SFX if they hit a target in Fog of War

  • Nocturne’s R – Paranoia VO volume has been fixed and is no longer much louder than intended

  • Ivern and his jungle friends are on speaking terms again. In other words, his jungle camp interaction VO lines have been restored.
