League of Legends Patch Releases Final Balance Changes of 2019

Following the final full patch of the year and another mid-patch balance update that nerfed Aphelios and fixed some bugs, League of Legends players are getting yet another set of balance changes before the year ends. The notes for Patch 9.24b were released on Wednesday to show what’s coming to the game to hold players over until next year. These changes are the final ones releasing for League in 2019, so don’t expect to see anything else changed unless something drastic happens be tween now and the next big update.

A couple of champions, the Elder Dragon and the Elemental Dragons as a whole, and Lethality items were the subject of this last update along with a few bugfixes. Riot confirmed again in the patch notes that this update will be the final one for the year and said that this update deals mainly with light changes as opposed to significant updates.

“This B-side patch brings one more round of balance changes before the end of the year!” Riot said in its post. “Most of the changes will be simpler buffs or nerfs, making a champ or system stronger or weaker without significantly changing decision making.”

You can find all of the changes included in this update below except for the ones for Aphelios which were included in the mid-patch update released on Tuesday.
