With a new announcement on their official website, Riot Games has just confirmed all the changes that this new patch will bring to the Rift, changes that are “focused on tidying things up for the championship, which means levelling the playing field so that not one figure is dwarfing the rest”.
New Champion: Samira
Samira comes to the live servers with this new Patch and an amazing set of abilities:
- Passive – Daredevil Impulse: Chaining non-repeating abilities (and basic attacks) increases Samira’s Style grade by one letter, from “E” to “S” rank. Every Style grade gives her bonus movement speed. Samira can also damage enemies at range with her guns or with her sword in melee range; the latter dealing bonus magic damage. Samira can also juggle enemies who are movement-impaired by her allies in the air, extending the displacement.
- Q – Flair: Samira fires a shot at her enemies directly when at range with her guns. Enemies in melee range will instead be damaged by a slash of her sword.
- W – Blade Whirl: Samira slashes the area around her with her sword, damaging enemies in the vicinity twice and destroying any enemy missiles in the area at cast and that enter the area after the fact.
- E – Wild Rush: Samira dashes through an enemy or ally, dealing magic damage to any enemies passed through and gaining bonus attack speed for a duration. Takedowns of enemy champions reset Wild Rush’s cooldown.
- R – Inferno Trigger: Samira unleashes a torrent of shots from her weapons, wildly attacking any enemies around her 10 times over a duration. Each shot deals physical damage, applies lifesteal, and can critically strike. Samira can only cast Inferno Trigger if her current Style grade is at “S” (the max grade).

Skins and Chromas:
With the new Patch 10.19, the ‘Psy-Ops‘ skins set brings brand new astonishing designs for five champions: Pyke, Viktor, Zed, Samira, and Kayle.
All of them will have their own chromas, to choose between eight colours with each skin!
But the Psy-Ops set is not the only thing coming. This year’s Championship skin has been revealed and comes with the new version to our games dressing up LeBlanc:
Championship LeBlanc will also come with its own Chromas, and we will be able to choose between three different colours!
And last but not least, we will be able to purchase in the store a new Yasuo skin to keep the show running: True Damage Yasuo Prestige Edition
In the Patch 10.19 Official Notes, Riot Games also explains what changes they have done to balance the “One for All” game mode, the balance changes that they have also performed for “ARAM“, and several bugfixes and QoL changes that you can check here.
