League of Legends patch 12.12 took a look at the game's most recent champion addition, Bel'Veth, and made some changes to healing following the Grievous Wounds nerfs from the Durability Update. Additionally, it gave champions like Katarina and Shaco a rework.
However, it seems like they didn't quite hit the mark as not only is Riot nerfing Bel'Veth even more, but they are also reverting the changes made to both Katarina and Shaco in the upcoming LoL 12.12b.
Here's everything we know about the LoL 12.12b hotfix update.
LoL 12.12b Release Time & Date
Due to it not having to adhere to the official League of Legends patch schedule thanks to it being a hotfix, LoL 12.12b hits live servers on Thursday, June 30, 2022.
Unlike usual patch releases, players don't need to expect League of Legends servers to go down before the arrival of LoL 12.12b. Instead, the changes will simply be available at release time for all players.
