League of Legends Patch 11.14 was launched to the live servers just last week, and it introduced the month-long Sentinels of Light Event and more. As usual, a new update is now live on the Public Beta Environment (PBE), so those who want to try the latest features will be able to do so today.

Akshan, the Rogue Sentinel

Patch 11.15 is headlined by the new hero, Akshan. He is a midlane marksman using a grappling gun to deal damage to his foes, while also giving him some versatile utilities.

Akshan has a pretty interesting kit. For one, his Heroic Swing ability lets him embed a hook to the first terrain that it hits. Casting the ability again will let the Champion swing toward the direction of the hook, while also firing bullets at his enemies.

When using his ultimate ability, Comeuppance, he will start channeling power into his gun, thereby loading it with bullets. After a short period or upon recast, Akshan will then fire bullets at his enemies. The bullets deal physical damage based on the missing health of the first target they hit, including structures.

Akshan can also move, attack, or even use his Heroic Swing ability during the channeling phase of his ultimate, making him incredibly mobile to ensure punishment.

Patch Preview

Jeevun Sidhu, Current Lead Game Designer on Summoner's Rift Team for League of Legends, tweeted the patch preview of the upcoming update.

In the current patch, Irelia received some nerfs to her abilities. It would appear that she will get another round of nerfs in Patch 11.15.

Dr. Mundo, on the other hand, has received some tweaks to his stats in Patch 11.14. According to Sidhu, the “Madman of Zaun” will apparently receive further adjustments in the next update. 

In addition, the Hullbreaker item will receive some buffs. All of the changes have not been disclosed yet at the time of writing, though more details are likely going to be revealed soon.

New Skins

Some lore-inspired skins will be added in the next update. They are:

SENTINEL
  • Rengar: 1,350 RP
  • Pyke: 1,350 RP
  • Graves: 1,820 RP
RUINED
  • Miss Fortune: 1,350 RP
UNBOUND
  • Thresh: Rewards

The upcoming update will also introduce Akshan’s Cyber Pop skin on launch day which costs 1,350 RP.

League of Legends Patch 11.15 is expected to launch on July 21, 6 a.m. EST.
