LoL Patch 14.6 is slated to bring forth changes to several items, with general nerfs to many champions.
The changes have been datamined and are yet to be confirmed by Riot Phroxzon on Twitter.
LoL Patch 14.6 goes live on 20th March.

League of Legends Season 2024 has been up and running for quite a few weeks now. We are already gearing up for the sixth patch of the season: LoL Patch 14.6. Every two weeks, Riot Games rolls out a new patch for League of Legends to try and fix the state of the game and its items and champions to create a level playing field.

Before every patch goes live on the official servers, they spend time being tested on the Public Beta Environment (PBE). Players and devs test out the changes and give feedback before everything is finalized.

Now, it looks like LoL Patch 14.6 has been datamined even before Lead Designer: League Balance Team & Preseason Matt Leung-Harrison aka Riot Phroxzon could share on his socials.

Here are the possible changes coming your way in LoL Patch 14.6.

  • Oceania: 10 am AEST

  • North America: 3 am PT

  • Europe West: 5 am GMT 

  • Europe Nordic and East: 3 am CET
