League of Legends patch 12.9 official notes: Taliyah and Olaf mini-rework, massive Pyke adjustments, and more

League of Legends patch 12.9 will be a rather big one as Riot Games will be looking to introduce many changes to the champion meta this time around.

However, the highlight of the patch will be the mini-rework that Taliyah and Olaf will be receiving, along with the adjustments that will be hitting Pyke.

There will be other champions updates this time around and nerfs to Healbreaker to make it a bit less dominant in the top lane. League of Legends fans looking for a detailed patch description can look up Riot’s official website.

However, for a brief overview, here are all the major highlights.
