Legends of Runeterra’s newest expansion, Rise of the Underworld, is aiming to shake up the meta with more than 40 new cards. Alongside the next expansion, Patch 2.11.0 will also bring a massive wave of balance changes, the most in the game’s history.

Of the 47 adjustments, a notable number of them are reversals of previous nerfs, like Make It Rain and Will of Ionia. Most of the balance changes are buffs to varying degrees that aim to give cards that haven’t seen play in any competitive meta a chance at viability.

Here are all of the balance changes coming in LoR Patch 2.11.0. The cards that were reverted to a past version are denoted with an asterisk (*).
