League of Legends Patch 9.18 promises to bring a host of new changes to a wide range of champions.

The large update includes buffs and nerfs to the AD carry position, as well as big changes to dominant mid lane champions, top laners, and junglers. 

A selection of skins, including Star Guardian Neeko, Xayah, Rakan, and Zoe, will also be available in League’s store. Neeko and Zoe will cost 1,350 RP, while Xayah and Rakan come in at a hefty 1,820 RP for the pair.

The patch notes are expected to be released sometime today with the official update dropping tomorrow morning (Sept. 11). Maintenance is scheduled for 6am CT for the North American servers and 3am CEST for the European servers.
