League of Legends patch 6.24

League of Legends' next big content patch is 6.24, introducing new champion Camille (she's got swords for legs), as well as a host of balance and bug fixes, mostly tweaking champions that have been introduced or redesigned in recent months. Have a look below for all the information we've got, straight from the PBE.

Want in? You'll need the best League of Legends champions.

LoL Patch 6.24 Release Date And Downtime

Patch 6.24 will release on December 7 at 3am Pacific for NA, 5am GMT for EUW and 3am CET for EUNE. Keep an eye on the server maintenance page for the latest updates. Quick reminder that this is the last patch of the year before we go into 7.X patches, so expect some weirdness outside the norm for the next PBE cycle.

LoL Patch 6.24 New Champion - Camille

Camille Abilities

League of Legends' next champion is Camille, the Steel Shadow, a savage enhanced human who has swords for legs and some great animations. When she's not keeping the powerful in power she's hanging out in LoL's top lane, winning duels with precise targetting of powerful abilities. At least that's the plan. Here's how she plays:

Stats:

  • Attack Range: 125
  • Movement Speed: 340
  • Base HP: 575.6
  • HP Growth: 95
  • Base Mana: 338.8
  • Mana Growth: 32
  • Base Damage: 62
  • Damage Growth: 3.5
  • Attack Speed per level : 2.5
  • Base HP Regen: 1.7
  • HP Regen growth: 0.16
  • Base Mana Regen: 1.63
  • Mana Regen growth: 0.15
  • Base Armor: 26
  • Armor Growth: 3.8
  • Base Magic Resist : 32.1
  • Magic Resist per level: 1.25

Adaptive Defenses (Passive):

Adaptive Defenses

  • Camille's basic attacks against champions grant her a shield equal to 20% of her maximum health against their primary damage type for 1.5 seconds.
  • Cooldown: 20/15/10 seconds (levels 1/7/13)
  • Primary damage type is determined via analysing every champion in the game and Camille's resistances to grant the best shield.

Precision Protocol (Q)

Precision Protocol

  • Mana cost: 25
  • Cooldown: 9/8.25/7.5/6.75/6 seconds
  • Camille's next basic attack deals 20/25/30/35/40% AD bonus physical damage and increases her movement speed by 20/25/30/35/40 for 1 second. This ability can be recast in the next 3 seconds at no cost. 
  • If the second Precision Protocol attack hits at least 1.5 seconds after the first, the bonus damage is doubled and [55-100 based on level]% of the attack is converted into true damage. This cannot critically strike.

Tactical Sweep (W)

Tactical Sweep

  • Mana cost: 50/55/60/65/70
  • Cooldown: 15/13.5/12/10.5/9 seconds
  • Camille winds up and then slices in a direction, dealing 65/95/125/155/185 (+60% bonus AD) physical damage to enemies hit. She is able to move while winding up.
  • Enemies hit by the outer half are slowed by 90%, decaying over 2 seconds. They take extra physical damage equal to 6/6.5/7/7.5/8% (+3% per 100 bonus AD) of their maximum health, healing Camille for 100% of the damage dealt (healing capped at [10% max health] from non-champions). 
  • Tactical Sweep does 50% less damage to non-epic monsters.

Hookshot (E)

  • Mana cost: 50
  • Cooldown: 16/14.5/13/11.5/10 seconds
  • Fire a hookshot that attaches to terrain, pulling Camille to it and allowing Hookshot to be recast for 1 second. 
  • On second cast, Camille leaps from the wall, colliding with the first enemy champion hit. Upon landing, she deals 70/115/160/205/250 (+75% bonus AD) physical damage to nearby enemies and stuns them for 1 second stun. Dashes towards enemy champions travel twice as far and grant 40/50/60/70/80% attack speed for 5 seconds.

Hextech Ultimatum (R)

Hextech Ultimatum

  • Mana cost: 100.
  • Cooldown: 140/115/90 seconds
  • Camille briefly becomes untargetable and leaps onto an enemy champion, locking them into an area they cannot escape by any means for 4 seconds. Other nearby enemies are knocked away. Her basic attacks against the trapped enemy deal bonus magic damage equal to 5/10/15 plus 4/6/8% of their current health.
  • The Hextech Ultimatum ends if Camille leaves the area.

Here's what all that looks like:

LoL Patch 6.24 Balance Changes

That out of the way, let’s start with the really important bit, shall we? What you need to remember is that stuff on the PBE like this is neither guaranteed to happen, nor to be in the next patch even if it does. This is what the folks over at Riot are thinking about doing. We’ve got the numbers on what’s changing, and a general guideline on which way each champion, item, mastery, summoner spell or rune is moving.

LoL Patch 6.24 New Skins

Second most important: cosmetics. Lovely, gorgeous cosmetics. Bit more of a visual medium this, so we’ve grabbed the best videos of each skin, as well as a lovely pic or two. Some are relatively simple changes, while others are total reworks of every part of the champion outside the gameplay numbers - new VO, new animations, new particles and the rest. It’s generally defined by how much they cost, so we’ve detailed that as well.

Each patch has its own login screen with unique music. They're always fairly excellent, and 6.24's is no different, plus a bit of a return to form for the Riot music team. It's all All-Star:

LoL Patch 6.24 Spectator Mode changes

A few changes to spectator mode in this patch. Nothing huge, but changes people will appreciate:

  • Each team’s Elemental drake buffs are now tracked in spectator mode
  • For Poro King matches, charges toward summoning the Poro King are now tracked in spectator mode
  • For Nexus Siege matches, structure takedowns (offense) and charges toward the Obliterator (defense) are now tracked in spectator mode

Legion Alpha Client 'Potato Mode'

As evidenced in this screenshot, Riot are adding a potato mode into the new client - something to help it run on low-spec PCs. It wasn't meant to go live to PBE yet as stated on Reddit, and is part of a wider effort to get the new client running properly on machines that had no issues with the older version.

That's League of Legends patch 6.24. We'll update as and when we get more info, or we'll see you for patch ... 7.0? ... in the very near future. Let us know below if there's any vital info we missed!
