Controversial ranked changes, fun skins, and one mega-sized rework are all on the way.

This April update has a long-awaited headliner in the Skarner rework, of course, but there are plenty of major things coming alongside the Crystal Vanguard’s new and improved look, including huge Enchanter changes, a controversial LP swap, and the latest and greatest April Fools’ cosmetics.

On top of that, more than a dozen League champions are getting buffs and nerfs and Statikk Shiv is getting hit again for good measure.

Here’s everything we know about League’s Patch 14.7 update.

When will League Patch 14.7 go live?

League Patch 14.7 will arrive on Wednesday, April 3, according to Riot’s official patch schedule, with all the champion balance changes (and Skarner’s rework) shipping immediately and the April Fools’ skins coming somewhere along the cycle.

Here are all the key patching times:

  • 3pm CT (NA)
  • 5am GMT (EU West)
  • 3am CET (EU North East)
  • 8am KR (Korea)

Here’s a countdown to the NA League release.

Timer expired

Expect several hours of server downtime once patching begins. Matchmaking will be disabled across all League queues three hours before the update is set live.

What’s new in League Patch 14.7?

Skarner steals the show

The biggest single champion update in League Patch 14.7 is the Skarner rework. This complete visual and graphic update has been teased by Riot since 2022, and finally, the extensive gameplay change will hit the live servers with the arrival of the next patch.

Skarner’s rework was originally voted upon by League fans in a poll released by Riot over two years ago, and although there have been plenty of delays that have prevented his release, the community will finally see those results come to life.

Skarner’s rework has revamped the scorpion into a modern version of his beloved original form, giving him a new design and ability set to keep up with the latest champion releases in the game. He boasts some of the most terrifying abilities we’ve seen from a jungler, while still maintaining the same identity that summoners have come to know and love.

Enchanter supports continue to get tweaked

Following up on trends that began with Patch 14.5 and Patch 14.6, Riot is continuing to scale back damage on Enchanter supports by nerfing their most potent DPS spells and buffing utility abilities and heals.

In particular, the League devs would like champions like Karma, Nami, and Sona to be supports first and then stand out as damage threats second, and more changes to those champs (and the entire role as a whole) are coming in Patch 14.7.

LP changes could make ranked climbing harder

A systematic change in Patch 14.7 will make it more difficult to get your rank back after facing a demotion on the ladder. When you drop a rank, you’ll be set back to a mark of 50 LP instead of the usual mark of 75. This means it will generally take at least three match wins in a row to get back to your previous rank instead of the original two before.

Despite Riot’s belief that demotions have been “too forgiving,” players have responded negatively to this change, with some going as far as calling it “actual garbage.”

April Fools 2024 skin line is super silly

League Patch 14.7 will coincide with the yearly April Fools’ event, which, of course, is celebrated with new April Fools’ skins. Each year for April Fools’ Day, Riot adds new skins that are extremely silly, goofy, or weird by nature. From the Pajama Cosplayers of 2020 to the Battle Bunnies of 2022, every year’s April Fools’ skins have been lighthearted, and this year’s additions are no exception. 

With Patch 14.7, players can expect fun one-off skins for Ornn, Twitch, Rammus, Cho’Gath, and Zac—each of whom are lesser-played champs with a shorter lineup of skins than most other characters on the League roster.

Here are all the April Fools 2024 skins coming in this patch:

  • Choo-Choo Ornn
  • Durian Defender Rammus
  • Toy Terror Cho’gath
  • Cheddar Chief Twitch
  • Zesty Dip Zac

These skins will go live during the Patch 14.7 cycle.
