Riot Games' patch notes for League of Legends 7.4 are out in the wild, and there's a massive changelog following its release. Arguably, the most important changes are Cho'gath's rework, a brand new upcoming skin for Anivia (which is absolutely gorgeous) and a few champion alterations for the game going forward. Here's a roundup of some of the changes to expect from the patch going forward — and check out our roundup of Patch 7.3 if you haven't seen it already.

League of Legends 7.4 Patch Notes: Cho'gath update

League of Legends

There are massive changes in store for Cho'gath. Patch 7.4 essentially makes the massive beast even bigger, with the Feast ability now able to stack against enemies without limit.

Here are the full details from the patch notes:

Feast can stack infinitely against champions and epic monsters, and stacks no longer fall off on death. Feast's ability power ratio down; bonus health ratio added.

League of Legends 7.4 Patch Notes: Additional updates

The long-awaited Practice Tool and Low-Spec mode will now become available as of Patch 7.4, according to Riot Games: 

[NEW] SICK (CPU) GAINS :: Enabling Low-Spec Mode now automatically closes the client once you've made it through champ select, focusing more of your machine's precious resources on the match at hand. If you enable this mode, you'll notice that it takes a few seconds longer to get to the end-of-game screen after your game ends. That's because a background process has to automatically re-launch the client. It's gonna look a bit like your client is exploding when this happens, but we intend to keep working on this feature to make it less jarring.
