Patch 14.8 Notes

Welcome to patch 14.8—the official patch of MSI 2024!

In this patch we're focusing on getting everything ready for MSI, so that means you'll see some more Pro-oriented changes to make sure things are in good shape going into the tournament. But if you aren't a Pro like me don't worry, because there are still quite a few changes here for us as well!

In other news, we have an update on Vanguard, a new batch of Blood Moon skins, and a Mythic Shop rotation, and a batch of ARAM balance changes.

Patch Highlights

Blood Moon Fiddlesticks, Blood Moon Zed, and Blood Moon Zyra will be available April 17, 2024 at 19:00 UTC.


Beginning with this patch, Vanguard will officially be turned on in the Philippines on the live servers. This means that enforcement of Vanguard will be in effect for that region, and you will be unable to queue unless you have Vanguard on.

For the rest of the world, this patch will contain a popup to check your compatibility. It will check to make sure your Operating System is up to date, and that you have TPM 2.0 enabled (if you're on Windows 11). If you fail any of these checks, it will give you a fail state and ask you to resolve those issues, but it will not prevent you from playing at this time. We highly encourage you to resolve any of those issues quickly so that when we turn on enforcement, you will be able to continue playing Teamfight Tactics PC and/or League of Legends. At this time, we're planning to turn on Vanguard for all regions (except China), starting with patch 14.9 (next patch). If anything changes, we'll update you all ASAP on any changes to this rollout.

Please check out our devblog and player support articles for any help troubleshooting or info about Vanguard.



Base health increased.

We're raising Akali's early game health to help her get to her mid-to-late-game state more consistently. Her base health was uncharacteristically low compared to other champions, so this should bring her more in line with her peers.

Base Stats

  • Base Health: 570 ⇒ 600


Base health regen decreased. W damage decreased.

Azir has been a Pro play staple for an incredibly long time thanks to his passable laning phase paired with an incredible late game and playmaking potential. We'll be adjusting his early game safety by lowering his base health regeneration, and lowering the early damage of his W with a goal to give his counter picks a better opportunity to beat him in lane.

Base Stats

  • Health Regeneration per 5 Seconds: 5 ⇒ 3.5

W - Arise!

  • Magic Damage: 0-77 (based on level) (+50/67/84/101/118) (+55% AP) ⇒ 0-77 (based on level) (+50/65/80/95/110) (+55% AP)


Health growth decreased. Q range increased. W bonus attack speed decreased.

Briar continues to be very strong in lower skill levels so we're taking another pass at her to address this. The bug fixes to Sundered Sky (one of her core items) were a contributor to some of her power, so we're nerfing her sustained output while giving another minor buff to Q for skilled players who like switching targets and cosplaying Lee Sin hopping to wards.

Base Stats

  • Health Growth: 100 ⇒ 95

Q - Head Rush

  • Range: 450 ⇒ 475

W - Blood Frenzy

  • Bonus Attack Speed: 54/68/82/96/110% ⇒ 55/65/75/85/95%


Q damage increased.

Despite what he might admit, Draven's early game lacked the power that gave him the ability to control the laning phase. We want to reestablish Draven's ability to be a lane bully, so we're putting a bit more power into his Q's to let him be just that.

Q - Spinning Axe

  • Bonus Physical Damage: 40/45/50/55/60 (+75/85/95/105/115% bonus AD) ⇒ 45/50/55/60/65 (+75/85/95/105/115% bonus AD)


Base movement speed increased. Q cooldown decreased early.

Galio is close to a reasonable power level, but he's not fully there yet. In order to get him there we're giving him two smaller buffs to increase his power and to ensure he becomes an interesting pick for Pro play. We're increasing his base movement speed, as it's a stat he highly values, especially since he needs the target access for multiple passive procs. We're also including a small reduction to his early Q cooldown to help him get more passive refunds.

Base Stats

  • Base Movement Speed: 335 ⇒ 340

Q - Winds of War

  • Cooldown: 12/10.75/9.5/8.25/7 ⇒ 11/10/9/8/7 seconds


Passive reload time scaling adjusted, critical damage ratio per pellet increased.

We're giving Graves some much-needed buffs while skewing him toward crit itemization and repeat attacks, which we think is a healthier spot for his gameplay as opposed to lethality burst. While this reload speed change is a bit of a riskier buff, we think it'll be good for Graves and we'll follow up if his power level ends up wildly out of line.

Passive - New Destiny

  • Attack Speed Scaling: Increased Attack Speed scaling from non-level sources towards reload time by 35%
  • Critical Damage Ratio per Pellet: 40% ⇒ 45%


Passive bonus magic damage increased.

We expected we’d have to balance Hwei around Pro play with pretty low win rates for regular players. However, as the Pro season has developed, it looks like we have more room than we initially thought, so we’re giving him a small buff to his passive, which brings him up a touch in lower-skilled brackets where players don’t dodge away from the damage as well. Our goal is that he’ll be a moderate-presence champion in Pro play while also being as successful as most other mages in solo queue.

Passive - Signature of the Visionary

  • Bonus Magic Damage: 35-180 (based on level) (+30% AP) ⇒ 35-180 (based on level) (+35% AP)

Jarvan IV

Passive damage increased.

Jarvan IV is one of the simpler junglers to play, so any time his win rate in lower-skilled brackets barely crests 50%, it means he's actually weak and needs some help. To buff him, we're partially reverting the 13.18 passive nerf as it was a satisfying aspect of his kit that gave better clear speed and kill-securing that benefits players of all calibers.

Passive - Martial Cadence

  • Bonus Physical Damage: 6% of target's current health ⇒ 7% of target's current health


Bonus movement speed on crits increased. Q damage increased.

As a uniquely utility-focused ADC, we think Jhin can be a high performer without causing too much trouble. Plus he's a little on the weak side right now, especially in higher skill brackets. Not only are we adding several more 4s to his tooltips, we're also powering up the more skill-expressive parts of his kit with his ability to kite early and the power of his ramping grenade bounces.

Passive - Whisper

  • Bonus Movement Speed on Critical Strike: 10% (+0.4% bonus Attack Speed) ⇒ 14% (+0.4% bonus Attack Speed)

Q - Dancing Grenade

  • Minimum Physical Damage: 45/70/95/120/145 (+35/42.5/50/57.5/65% AD) (+60% AP) ⇒ 44/69/94/119/144 (+44/51.5/59/66.5/74% AD) (+60% AP)


Q damage increased.

We wanted to buff Kai'Sa to encourage more ADC diversity in solo queue and Pro play without touching her AP builds, which can be problematic. We wanted to increase the AD ratio on Kai'Sa's Q to emphasize damage that required higher commitment and played up her unique assassin-like characteristics.

Q - Icathian Rain

  • Damage per Missile: 40/55/70/85/100 (+50% bonus AD) (+20% AP) ⇒ 40/55/70/85/100 (+55% bonus AD) (+20% AP)


Q damage increased. W cooldown decreased.

Leblanc is struggling in solo queue and also isn't seeing much presence in Pro, so we're giving her a bit more power to play with. We're lowering her early W cooldown to increase her agency in lane, as its level 1 value is currently a bit too high. We're also increasing her Q base damage, as it's quite impactful for her early laning phase in high skill brackets, but should be felt by all due to its last hitting benefit.

Q - Sigil of Malice

  • Magic Damage: 65/90/115/140/165 (+ 45% AP) ⇒ 70/95/120/145/170 (+ 45% AP)

W - Distortion

  • Cooldown: 18/16/14/12/10 ⇒ 15/13.75/12.5/11.25/10 seconds


Q cooldown decreased. E damage decreased. R is no longer escapable with certain abilities/items.

Mordekaiser has long suffered from being very powerful in lower-skilled games while being too inconsistent in highly-skilled ones. Some of this disparity is due to his weak early lane and his ultimate being easily countered by an inexpensive item and certain champion interactions. This patch we're hoping to shore up both of those pain points while making a small compensation nerf to his damage.

We acknowledge that this change to his ultimate is quite risky. It's possible that Mordekaiser is not balanceable without such strong counters and that ultimately Mordekaiser players would be happier with a highly unreliable ult but a stronger base kit. But we're going to support this version of Mordekaiser and do our best to balance him with these new strengths in mind.

Q - Obliterate

  • Cooldown: 9/7.75/6.5/5.25/4 ⇒ 8/7/6/5/4 seconds

E - Death's Grasp

  • Magic Damage: 80/95/110/125/140 (+60% AP) ⇒ 70/85/100/115/130 (+60% AP)

R - Realm of Death

  • newDeath Realm Escape Interactions: Champions can no longer escape Mordekaiser's Death Realm by using Quicksilver Sash, Mercurial Scimitar, Alistar's Unbreakable Will, Gangplank's Remove Scurvy, Milio's Breath of Life, Olaf's Ragnarok, or Rengar's Ferocity Battle Roar. However, crowd control immunity will still prevent the application of Realm of Death.


Q bonus damage to monsters increased.

Olaf gained a lot of jungle power last patch but he still needs a bit more help before he's in a solid spot. Similar to Sylas, he feels a bit constrained within his main role, so we're focusing on increasing his jungle power. His first clear is already good, but his consecutive clears have room to be better since he should be one of the fastest in the game.

Q - Undertow

  • Bonus Damage to Monsters: 5/10/15/20/25 ⇒ 5/15/25/35/45


W slow increased, cooldown decreased early.

We're giving Ryze some power tailored to the average player by giving him access to a more reliable slow with a lower cooldown, which should bring up his baseline utility to his teams.

W - Rune Prison

  • Slow: 35% ⇒ 50%
  • Cooldown: 13/12/11/10/9 ⇒ 11/10.5/10/9.5/9 seconds


Rune and item recommendations updated. Mana growth decreased, mana regen growth increased. Q damage increased, mana cost decreased, buff duration increased, Upheaval recast lockout time decreased, Shattered Earth cast time decreased. W mana cost increased, damage decreased.

Skarner's rework launched last patch with low jungle power and very strong performances in top lane. We expect he'll perform better as players continue to learn his nuances but there's a lot of room to make the experience of playing Skarner much nicer.

First, we're updating his recommended jungle runes and items. Every recommended page now suggests Resolve runes in the primary or secondary tree and includes an Aftershock page, as it's been a great rune for him. To our surprise, Heartsteel appears very good as well, so it's replacing Iceborn Gauntlet in his item recommendations.

Second, we're doing a sweep of feels improvements to his Q, which should make him feel much more mobile and usable in fights at large.

Third, we're shifting around power from his W into his Q. As it turns out, W-max top lane Skarner is significantly stronger than regular jungle Skarner with low counter-play, so we're trying to put these builds into similar power and fairness levels. We're also buffing the Q AD ratio to make juggernaut alt-builds more functional.

Recommended Runes and Items

  • Recommended Rune Pages: Updated to offer the following rune pages: Aftershock, Phase Rush, and Conqueror
  • Recommended Items: Added Heartsteel, moved Iceborn Gauntlet later, increased priority of Dead Man's Plate

Base Stats

  • Mana Growth: 45 ⇒ 40
  • Mana Regeneration Growth: 0.45 ⇒ 0.6

Q - Shattered Earth / Upheaval

  • Damage per Hit: 10/20/30/40/50 (+40% bonus AD) (+6% of his bonus health) ⇒ 10/25/40/55/70 (+60% bonus AD) (+6% of his bonus health)
  • Mana Cost: 40/45/50/55/60 ⇒ 30/35/40/45/50
  • Buff Duration: 3.5 ⇒ 5 seconds (Note: the buff will still refresh on attacks and upon casting E)
  • Upheaval Recast Lockout Time: 0.75 ⇒ 0.5 seconds
  • Shattered Earth Cast Time: 0.5 ⇒ 0.35 seconds (Note: this is how long Skarner stands in place pulling the boulder out of the ground before being able to move or attack)

W - Seismic Bastion

  • Mana Cost: 50/55/60/65/70 ⇒ 60/65/70/75/80
  • Magic Damage: 60/90/120/150/180 (+80% AP) ⇒ 50/75/100/125/150 (+80% AP)


Q explosion damage to monsters increased.

We're further buffing Sylas jungle now that we have data on how his Q modifier affects his win rate, especially since we think he could appear at MSI as a flex pick. Since he lacks any room for mid lane oriented adjustments at the moment, we'll be completely removing the Q monster modifier, as his clear still has plenty of room to go down.

Q - Chain Lash

  • Damage to Monsters: 70% ⇒ 100%


Base armor and magic resist growth increased.

Thresh is a little bit weaker than we think he should be, and since he's an exciting champion to watch on the big stage we want to give him a small buff. We think he deals enough damage already, so we're playing up his tankiness this patch, nudging his resists closer to true short-range or melee champions.

Base Stats

  • Base Armor: 31 ⇒ 33
  • Magic Resist Growth: 1.3 ⇒ 1.55


Base health regeneration decreased.

Zac has been bouncing around and dominating top lane for a while now, much to his opponents' chagrin. He's a pretty well balanced jungler, but a pretty noninteractive and overbearing top laner. So we're looking to reduce his early game lane safety by bringing down his passive regeneration, requiring him to risk reprisal from his lane opponents if he wants to sustain back up.

Base Stats

  • Base Health Regeneration per 5 Seconds: 8 ⇒ 5


Base health decreased.

Zeri was a big winner from 14.6's crit item buffs. Though we brought down Statikk Shiv a little, she risks becoming the most sought-after champion at MSI, so we're taking away a little bit of early game durability to open up lane bullies as a tactical counter in lane.

Base Stats

  • Base Health: 630 ⇒ 600


Baron Nashor

Baron got a big visual overhaul earlier this year, but his damage hasn't been quite as scary as his new appearance. Due to this, we're buffing Baron's attacks to make them more apparent while ensuring they don't deal too much damage. This should encourage players to more frequently reposition around Baron's abilities so that contesting it is just as intense as his music.
  • Acid Pool Magic Damage: 10% AD ⇒ 200 (+10% AD)
  • Acid Pool Slow: 50% ⇒ 60%
  • Territorial Baron Pull Magic Damage: 75 ⇒ 300
  • Hunting Baron Lightning Magic Damage: 15% of target's current health ⇒ 20% of target's current health
  • Acid Shot Magic Damage: 20% AD ⇒ 200 (+50% AD)
  • Tentacle Knock Up Magic Damage: 25% AD ⇒ 200 (+25% AD)


This patch we're making a few adjustments to Voidgrubs. First, we're pushing the spawn time up a minute. This is intended to line their spawn time up with when solo laners hit level 6 so they can contest the objective in a more meaningful way. We'd also like to differentiate its spawn time from dragon to create more tension for competing teams since the objectives can no longer be traded on spawn. The respawn timer change should also lower the value of—or at least delay—sending your bot lane up to top in order to reign over the grubbies. Second, we believe the reward itself should be more powerful, so we're buffing both the stack amount and the summon threshold.
  • Initial Voidgrub Spawn Time: 5 ⇒ 6 minutes
  • Touch of the Void Damage per Stack: 6 (halved to 3 for ranged champions) true damage per second over 4 seconds ⇒ 8 (halved to 4 for ranged champions)
  • Hunger of the Void Threshold: 5 Touch of the Void stacks, gain a 2nd summon at 6 stacks ⇒ 4 Touch of the Void Stacks, gain a 2nd summon at 6 stacks

ARAM Balance Changes

Hello ARAMers! We have a light patch this time as we're wrapping up on Arena, so get excited! We're continuing to remove nerfs on champions with the goal of bringing them back to how they feel compared to Summoner's Rift. In terms of nerfs this patch, we overbuffed Zyra last patch which contributed to her zone control being a bit more frustrating than other mages so we're dialing them back. Meanwhile, Vi has been benefiting from her current buffs so we're aiming to slowly remove the extra ones.


  • Illaoi: Damage Taken: 110% ⇒ 105%
  • Leona: Damage Taken: 105% ⇒ 100%
  • Nautilus: Damage Taken: 110% ⇒ 105%
  • Xerath: Damage Dealt: 93% ⇒ 95%

Patch 14.7 Notes

Don’t be a fool, patch 14.7 is serious business!

On this week’s episode of “what did we patch in,” it’s some April fools' shenanigans! This time around we’ve got a few changes when it comes to the damage coming out of the support role for a few champs, and some pesky bugs that were impacting Senna and support items. We also got some changes to bring the Solo Queue Terrorizer known as Volibear back in line, as well as some tweaks to give Olaf a little more junglin’ power. We also pulled back some changes we gave to Rell in the jungle department and then gave Sylas a teeny bit more jungling power for those strange people out there that want to jungle Sylas. We also have a few more tweaks to Galio following last week's changes to incentivize him a little more on getting some melee uptime.

We also threw down a slew of ARAM balance changes for supports and tanks, have an update on DirectX support and a handful of April Fools' skins!

Shop.riotgames.com Deprecation

Starting on April 9, 2024 we’ll be spinning down support for our online shopping site, shop.riotgames.com. This means RP purchases, LoL PC event skins, and weekly skin sales will no longer be available on this site. While you’ll still be able to redeem codes via the website, we recommend using the client in place of the website going forward.

DX9 Depreciation

To maintain the stability and performance of our games we need to deprecate support for older hardware or software that isn't widely used by players anymore. To that end, some time in the next few patches we will remove support and the ability to manually opt for DirectX 9 for League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics. If you're currently opted into using DirectX 9, the game will automatically disable this option when we remove the support. If you were running in DirectX 9 due to hardware incompatibility issues, we recommend upgrading your devices as soon as possible, so you may continue to play.

We’re currently targeting 14.9 for the end of DirectX 9 support, however if we change these plans we’ll continue to update you in future patch notes.

For more information on making sure your DirectX version is up to date and troubleshooting any issues related to it check out our support article. (The link should take you directly to the DirectX section, if not you can find it there).



Q bonus move speed increased, cooldown decreased. W outer cone damage increased. E damage decreased.

Camille has been pretty sad in top lane ever since the walls got pushed back. We think she could use some larger scope work in the future, but that doesn’t mean we can’t buff her right now. So we’re playing up some top-specific strengths targeted primarily at her laning phase, which is power she’ll carry into the rest of the game. We’re mostly giving her better sustained target access, which she’ll actually appreciate when she’s got solo lane levels of gold and experience. Because we’re concerned about support Camille’s power level, we’re bringing down her Hookshot burst a little as compensation. Our hope is that she remains viable in both roles and that top laners specifically feel more impact.

Q - Precision Protocol

  • Bonus Move Speed: 30/32.5/35/37.5/40% ⇒ 30/35/40/45/50%
  • Cooldown: 9/8.25/7.5/6.75/6 ⇒ 9/8/7/6/5

W - Tactical Sweep

  • Outer Cone Base Damage: 5/5.5/6/6.5/7% Max HP ⇒ 6/6.5/7/7.5/8% Max HP

E - Hookshot

  • Damage: 80/110/140/170/200 (+90% bonus AD) ⇒ 60/90/120/150/180 (+90% bonus AD)


Base attack damage decreased.

Fiora’s a bit too strong, especially in early game where they’re supposed to be more of skill matchups than feel like she’s winning by default. So we’re going to adjust her ability to win sustained fights against other fighters by making a small change to her base AD.

Base Stats

  • Attack Damage: 68 ⇒ 66


Passive damage increased. W damage reduction increased. E damage increased.

Last patch, we preemptively nerfed Galio to ensure the changes didn't land too strong. Since he landed weaker than we expected, we'll be walking back on these nerfs as they're no longer necessary. We're specifically reverting nerfs that affect him more while he's in melee range, as he needs the durability from W and the damage from passive and E to secure kills during that window. While the passive ratio buff will also strengthen his full AP builds, we're okay with that result because it skews him mid and is still helpful for his AP and HP builds.

Passive - Colossal Smash

  • Magic Damage: 15-115 (based on level) (+100% AD) (+40% AP) (+60% Bonus Magic Resistance) ⇒ 15-115 (based on level) (+100% AD) (+45% AP) (+60% Bonus Magic Resistance)

W - Shield of Durand

  • Magic Damage Reduction (halved for physical damage): 20/25/30/35/40 (+4% per 100 bonus magic resistance) (+1% per 100 bonus health) ⇒ 25/30/35/40/45% (+4% per 100 AP) (+8% per 100 bonus magic resistance) (+1% per 100 bonus health)

E - Justice Punch

  • Damage: 75/115/155/195/235 (+90% AP) ⇒ 90/130/170/210/250 (+90% AP)


W root duration decreased at lower ranks. R+E AoE shield increased.

Karma’s changes last patch landed very close to our goal, but we still want to do a little more to preserve her support power level. In order to do this, we’re decoupling her E ranks from the Mantra-E numbers to make it more in-line with the rest of her abilities, and make it less punishing if you don’t dump skill points into E. These changes should net around a 20-25% increase in shielding to her secondary targets through Mantra-E.

W - Focused Resolve

  • Root Duration: 1.4/1.55/1.7/1.85/2 ⇒ 1.6/1.7/1.8/1.9/2

R - Mantra

  • R+E AoE Shield: 39-129 (based on E and R ranks) (+31.5% AP) ⇒ 45/81/117/153 (based on R ranks) (+40.5% AP). (Note: Move speed and single-target shield unchanged)


Q Damage increased.

Shadow Assassin Kayn took a huge hit last patch, largely due to his synergy with Profane Hydra being heavily nerfed. He’s still got some half-decent builds with other items, so we’ll be buffing him with those in mind, since we expect him to climb as players adapt to the new normal. These changes will also slightly buff Rhaast, since he uses the basic version of Q before he transforms.

Q - Reaping Slash

  • Damage: 75/95/115/135/155 (+80 Bonus AD) ⇒ 75/95/115/135/155 (+85% Bonus AD)


Passive magic damage increased. Q magic damage increased.

Lux support is getting hit by the Zaz’Zak's change this patch, and since she's currently at a reasonable power level we'd like to give her a compensation buff. So we're buffing her ratios in a way that both roles will appreciate, but it should have slight skew for mid due to the wave clear benefits.

Passive - Illumination

  • Magic Damage: 30-200 (based on level) (+25% AP) ⇒ 30-200 (based on level) (+30%AP)

Q - Light Binding

  • Magic Damage: 80/120/160/200/240 (+60% AP) ⇒ 80/120/160/200/240 (+65% AP)


W magic damage decreased, healing increased, and bounce fall off reduced. E magic damage decreased.

Nami is at one of her historically weakest points and we think she could use a little love. In line with our other changes around support damage, we’re pulling out some mid-game damage through her E rank up and W AP ratio and re-adding it into her healing and overall teamfight output with W’s bounce power.

W - Ebb and Flow

  • Magic Damage: 60/100/140/180/220 (+55% AP) ⇒ 60/95/130/165/200 (+50% AP)
  • Healing: 55/75/95/115/135 (+25% AP) ⇒ 55/80/105/130/155 (+40% AP)
  • Bounce Falloff: -15% (+7.5% per 100 AP) ⇒ -10% (+10% per 100 AP)

E - Tidecaller’s Blessing

  • Magic Damage: 20/35/50/65/80 (+20%AP) ⇒ 20/30/40/50/60 (+20%AP)


Passive life steal increased. Q bonus physical damage increased.

Nasus hasn’t been performing so well in Solo Queue. We feel that he scales really well but struggles in lane, as he's able to be punished harshly. We'd like to reduce some of that harshness by increasing his Q damage to help him stack and trade better when using it on his opponent early. We’re also pairing this with an increase to his passive as we nerfed it when Divine Sunderer was still around and it’s no longer necessary to keep it lower.

Passive - Soul Eater

  • Life Steal: 11/16/21% (based on level) ⇒ 12/18/24% (based on level)

Q - Siphoning Strike

  • Bonus Physical Damage: 30/50/70/90/110 (+Siphoning Strike stacks) ⇒ 40/60/80/100/120 (+Siphoning Strike stacks)


Q bonus monster damage added. W bonus attack speed duration increased and mana cost increased. E cooldown refund increased when hitting monsters.

Olaf is intended to be a solid jungler but has had a hard time lately, and similar to Sylas, he’s already strong in solo lanes. We’d like to give him better tools to succeed as a jungler by increasing his clear speed, as it should be one of the highest in the game since objective control is his primary strength as a jungler.

While these changes will mostly help Olaf jungle they will still help him top some, so we're including an increase to his ultimate mana cost. We'll pay attention to how this lands and if it ends up restricting his mana pool by too much, we'll follow up to make sure he's still viable in top lane.

Q - Undertow

  • newBonus Monster damage: 5/10/15/20/25

W - Tough it Out

  • Bonus Attack Speed Duration: 4 seconds ⇒ 5 seconds
  • Mana Cost: 30 ⇒ 50

E - Reckless Swing

  • Cooldown Refund: 1 second per basic attack ⇒ 1s per basic attack, increased to 2 seconds when hitting monsters

R - Ragnarok

  • Mana Cost: 0 ⇒ 100


Passive fury gained from hitting minions, wards, and plants reduced and healing reduced at lower levels.

Rek’Sai is slightly too strong as a jungler, but not unreasonably so. As a top laner, though, she’s an immovable object. We’re pulling her top-lane specific levers in order to bring down that early sustain with a smaller nerf expected for her in the jungle.

Passive - Fury of the Xer’Sai

  • Fury gain from minions, wards, and plants: 12.5 ⇒ 5
  • Heal: 12-20% Max HP (based on level) ⇒ 10-20% Max HP (based on level)


Base magic resist growth increased. Q bonus monster damage removed. W bonus monster damage removed. E bonus monster damage removed.

Rell has long held a spot in Pro play as a low-economy jungler who excels at securing objectives and succeeding on very little gold income. However, this specific set of strengths for this very small set of players have often prevented us from making adjustments that would be good for the 90% of Rell players who enjoy her in support. So we’re ripping off the bandage and removing all of Rell jungle’s monster modifiers, effectively removing her secondary role from the game. As these modifiers carried a little bit of power for her support gameplay, we’re giving her a small direct buff as compensation. If it’s not enough, we’re happy to give her a little more in two weeks' time.

Base Stats

  • Magic Resist Growth: 1.85 ⇒ 2.05

Q - Shattering Strike

  • Bonus Monster Damage: Removed

W - Crash Down / Mount Up

  • Crash Down - Bonus Monster Damage: Removed
  • Mount Up - Bonus Monster Damage: Removed

E - Full Tilt

  • Bonus Monster Damage: Removed


Fewer souls dropped from allied support items killing minions, more souls dropped from Senna killing minions.

We noticed a bug that arrived in patch 14.1 that made Senna get the full drop chance from allied support item executes, which substantially increased her power as a farming bot laner. We’re fixing that bug in this patch and returning her on-kill drop chance near where it was before.

Passive - Absolution

  • Soul Drop Chance on Allied Support Minion Kill: 28% ⇒ 8.4%
  • Soul Drop Change on Minion Kill: 2.8% ⇒ 8.4%


Base armor increased. Q bonus damage based on crit chance increased.

Smolder got hit a bit harder than we wanted to last patch, so we’re returning some power in ways we think won’t be terribly frustrating. Now that he’s less evasive through E, he can stand to be more baseline durable. And now that his late-game power isn’t nearly as guaranteed, we’re going to return some damage in a way that asks him to build squishier items and be closer to his target.

Base Stats

  • Armor: 24 ⇒ 26

Q - Super Scorcher Breath

  • Bonus Physical Damage based on Crit Chance: 0-30% ⇒ 0-50%


Passive Staccato damage increased. Q ally bonus magic damage reduced. W heal increased. E ally move speed increased.

Sona, like Nami, is getting her defensive and utility outputs buffed with a compensation damage nerf in the fairly invisible Q aura. We’re juicing her Q-passive just a little as it’s currently the weakest option and is a more appreciable place to give her damage. We expect these changes to be power and appreciation up for Sona and her allies.

Passive - Power Chord

  • Staccato Damage Bonus: 40% ⇒ 50%

Q - Hymn of Valor

  • Ally Bonus Magic Damage: 10/15/20/25/30 (+20% AP) ⇒ 10/15/20/25/30 (+10%AP)

W - Aria of Perseverance

  • Heal: 30/45/60/75/90 (+15% AP) ⇒ 30/45/60/75/90 (+30% AP)

E - Song of Celerity

  • Ally Move Speed: 10/11/12/13/14% (+2% per 100 AP) ⇒ 10/12/14/16/18% (+2% per 100 AP)


R cooldown increased.

While we deeply love the bear (Editor add, not designer note), he’s still been a bit too much of a menace in Solo Queue and we’re not seeing that slow down much despite the previous nerfs. First, we’re removing an expectation-breaking interaction between his Q and Sundered Sky, which was granting him extremely large amounts of burst damage. Second, we think he needs a little bit more siphoned off and we feel like the bear enjoyers out there value the move speed from his Q more so than the frequency of the R so we want to pull back some of that previous R cooldown buff that we gave him.

Q - Thundering Smash

  • Crits only increase Volibear’s attack damage instead of total ability damage

R - Stormbringer

  • Cooldown: 140/120/100 ⇒ 160/135/110


Q monster damage increased.

Sylas jungle has been quite a weak link for him lately, but he has a playerbase that we'd like to support. Since he lacks any room mid, we’re separating his Q modifier to hasten his jungle clear. This change isn't intended to make Sylas a top tier jungler, but rather to make him more functional for those who play it. For now, we’re staying on the safer side for this initial buff and will revisit his jungle clear as needed.

Q - Chain Lash

  • Minion and Monster Damage: 40% ⇒ 40% for minions and 70% for monsters


Zaz’Zak’s Realmspike

We’re taking a long look at the damage coming out of the support role and this patch we’re going after some exclusively-damage sections.

Zaz’Zak’s is bound to mage supports where champions like Xerath and Lux have support as their strongest role, which leaves us little room to buff them in places like mid lane. Bloodsong creates similar problems for fighters like Camille and Pantheon with respect to their top lane power. In general, we don’t expect these damage-focused champions to switch support items, but would like if enchanters and tanks would build these items less frequently. Imperial Mandate rounds out this list as a support item that provides almost exclusively damage.

  • Void Explosion Damage: 20 (+20%AP) (+4% Target Max HP) ⇒ 10 (+20% AP) (+3% Target Max HP)
  • Cooldown: 8/7/6 at level 1/11/16 ⇒ 10


See Zaz’Zak for more context.
  • Spellblade AD Ratio: 150% ⇒ 100%

Imperial Mandate

See Zaz’Zak for more context.
  • Current HP Damage: 12% ⇒ 10%

Statikk Shiv

Statikk Shiv is a bit too strong now that crit ADCs have a great late game awaiting them. So we’ve adjusted the cost so that it doesn’t hastily bring them to the late game as much as it did in the past.
  • Total Cost: 2700 ⇒ 2900

World Atlas

While we've seen a decline in double support items in most regions, we're still seeing some teams do double or more support items. This change should ensure that it's no longer a thing and that support items are only appearing on the intended role that should be grabbing them.
  • Excessive Minion Kill Threshold: 20 minions in 5 minutes ⇒ 20 minions (divided by the number of support items on your team) in 5 minutes. This update applies to all support items.
  • For additional clarity this would be 10 minions over 5 minutes if two people on your team have World Atlas, then 7 minions over 5 minutes if three people have it, etc.

ARAM Balance Changes

We’re continuing the ongoing work to reduce the amount of durability debuffs on champions that are generally more engaging supports and tanks. This process overall is going to take us a few iterations and will have some knock on impacts to anti tank options so we’ll work on continuing to address those as well. Our goal is to be assessing more archetypes of champions more often so that we’re allowing each playstyle to have its fun in ARAM.

Next up on the list later on is for assassins and mages in the near future!


  • Galio: Damage Taken: 110% ⇒ 105%
  • Morgana: Damage Dealt: 90% ⇒ 95%
  • Rell: Damage Taken: 105% ⇒ 100%
  • Sett: Ability Haste: -20 ⇒ 0
  • Singed: Damage Taken: 110% ⇒ 105%
  • Sona: Damage Dealt: 95% ⇒ 100%
  • Teemo: Damage Dealt: 85% ⇒ 90%
  • Urgot: Damage Taken: 110% ⇒ 105%
  • Zyra: Ability Haste: -20 ⇒ 0


  • Cho’Gath: Damage Taken: 105% ⇒ 110%
  • Taric: Damage Taken: 105% ⇒ 110%

Quickplay Update

As a post-launch follow up, we’ve bundled Quickplay bug fixes and quality of life improvements with a visual update. The key improvements are focused on predictability and usability.

Predictability in this case means knowing that you’re going to get into game with one of your selections. Far too many players found themselves on the loading screen with the wrong runes—which is a terrible way to start a match. We found that one reason this occurs is that selections made while in queue do not stick, so we made a change to prevent it from happening in most cases. Another issue we tracked down is if a player has an invalid or incomplete rune page equipped, the system will assign them a different valid page. Our fix drives more awareness that there’s an issue with your current rune page so you can resolve it yourself.

Usability-wise, the new layout has larger hitboxes for the important choices and gives you a much clearer view of all current selections in each slot. We heard feedback that it was too easy to get into game with the wrong Summoner Spells and we saw lots of triple Smite screenshots. In addition to a clearer top down view so you can spot any issues, we made some changes to auto spell selections. In the previous version, when you selected jungle, we gave you Smite, but when you selected from jungle to another position, we left it up to you to change spells. Our fix will give you a position appropriate spell in that case, for example: ignite if you select from jungle to mid. Of course, you can change it to whatever you want, but this should put most players in a better state.

We also heard concerns that Ranked restricted players were abusing Quickplay and other Normal games to force a remake. This was addressed in the last patch across all queues so that remakes no longer count towards lifting their restriction.

  • Fixed an issue that caused Sundered Sky to not crit after canceling the previous auto attack.

  • Fixed an issue that caused Briar to sometimes not display her ability icons.
  • Fixed an issue that caused Ryze’s VFX to not display when casting his R near elevated terrain.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented Rek’Sai from gaining stacks of certain runes and Eclipse’s passive when she uses Q.
  • Fixed an issue that caused Profane Hydra and Titanic Hydra to have no effect when using them via Zoe’s spell thief.
  • Fixed an issue that caused Smolder’s R to be more whiny in spectator mode (it was playing the SFX twice for some reason).

  • Fixed an issue that caused champions to be unable to auto attack after using attack move commands while rooted/snared.
  • Fixed an issue that caused champions to auto attack unintentionally after being hit by a root/snare.

Upcoming Skins & Chromas

Due to a small issue Zesty Dip Zac and Cheddar Chief Cheese will be releasing with less delicious chroma names than intended. Check out the chroma names in patch 14.8 for a sweet (or savory?) surprise!

The following chromas will be released this patch:

Patch 14.6 Notes

Gather 'round cowboys and cowgirls, 'cause it's High Noon in patch 14.6!

This week, we've got ourselves a straightforward roundup. We're fixin' to boost the power of some scalin’ tanks that’re holdin' down the fort in the top lane like Cho'Gath and Sion. But we also gotta rein in them champions ridin' a bit too wild—lookin’ at you Smolder and Karma. And let me tell ya, we've got an update for Galio to make him live out his colossal tank midlaner dreams! When it comes to the gear, we're throwin' a buff lasso to give crit marksmen a bit more bite, and we're makin' a sweep through epic-tier items to make ‘em fairer.

Hold on to your saddles, 'cause there's more to the tale. We're wranglin' up some ARAM balance changes, tweakin' demotion LP levels, lettin' you know about a replay change behind the scenes, an update on DirectX support update, and unveilin' a fresh batch of High Noon skins for ya to feast your eyes on. So, saddle up partners and let the patchin' commence!

Also, make sure to keep an eye peeled for any suspicious stuff happenin’ in Quickplay towards the end of the month and let us know if y’all find anything interestin’.

OFA will be going live on March 20, 2024 at 16:00 UTC for EUW, EUN, RU, and TR. All other Riot regions will have the mode turned on three hours later at 19:00 UTC.

DirectX Support Update

Sometime in the next few patches, we will remove support and the ability to manually opt for DirectX 9 for League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics. To maintain the stability and performance of our games we need to deprecate support for older hardware or software that isn’t widely used by players anymore. If you’re still opted into using DirectX 9, the client will automatically turn off this option when we remove the support. However, if you were running it due to hardware reasons we recommend resolving that before we make this change so that you can continue playing when it’s removed.

Ranked Adjustments

Continuing on with our updates to the LP system, now that we’ve made promoting much easier we’re also adjusting the LP that players are set to once demoted. In its current state, demotions are a bit too forgiving, meaning some players are playing a rank above their actual skill level which results in negative LP gains. In order to help address this problem, we’ll be lowering the demotion LP starting point from 75 to 50 to help make those demotions more meaningful.

For more information on Placements, Promotions, and more check out our support page here.
  • Demotion LP adjusted from 75 LP to 50 LP

Updated Bot AI

Coming in this patch is our new Bot AI technology! Coming to Co-op versus AI: Intro, Beginner, and Intermediate queues, our new bots have picked up a few skills like jungling, taking objectives, ganking, and more. Our primary goal is that this new AI will provide newer players with a space to learn and grow while providing our experienced players with a lower-stress mode to enjoy. At the end of the day, we wanted to create an experience that feels much more like what you would see gameplay-wise in your normal games of Summoner’s Rift and we’re excited for our bots to do just that!

For more about the development of our new bot AI, check out the following dev blogs:.



Q can now jump to wards. W bonus attack speed decreased, healing decreased. R damage decreased.

Briar is currently struggling to find her footing in higher skill brackets of play while also overperforming in lower skill brackets. We’re introducing some skill level skewed nerfs and throwing a bone to Briar players who want to cosplay as Lee Sin.

Q - Head Rush

  • Ward Watch: Q can now jump to wards.

W - Blood Frenzy

  • Bonus Attack Speed: 55/70/85/100/115% ⇒ 54/68/82/96/110%

W - Snack Attack

  • Healing Based on Damage Dealt: 25/30/35/40/45% ⇒ 24/28/32/36/40%

R - Certain Death

  • Damage: 150/300/450 (+50% bonus AD) (+120% AP) ⇒ 150/250/350 (+50% bonus AD) (+120% AP)


W cooldown decreased. E damage increased.

Cho’Gath isn’t doing too hot up top, so we’re here to help this Void monstrosity become a bit more monstrous. We’re specifically targeting his early W cooldown and E damage in order to give him some better trading power and waveclear in lane.

W - Feral Scream

  • Cooldown: 13/12/11/10/9 ⇒ 11/10.5/10/9.5/9 seconds

E - Vorpal Spikes

  • Damage per Spike: 22/34/46/58/70 (+3% (+0.5% per Feast stack) of target's maximum health) ⇒ 22/37/52/67/82 (+3% (+0.5% per Feast stack) of target's maximum health)


Attack speed ratio increased, growth decreased. Passive bonus attack speed decreased, scaling adjusted, empowered bonus attack speed duration increased.

While Diana has been successful as an assassin in the mid lane this season, Jungle Diana has suffered due to her need to be an auto attacker. This patch, we're amping up her synergy with sustained combat builds without giving too much extra power to bursty ones.

Base Stats

  • Attack Speed Ratio: 0.625 ⇒ 0.694
  • Attack Speed Growth: 2.25% ⇒ 2%

Passive - Moonsilver Blade

  • Bonus Attack Speed: 15-39.96% (scaling every 3 levels) ⇒ 15-35% (scaling linearly) (Note: Added scaling past level 18 for alternate game modes.)
  • Empowered Bonus Attack Speed: tripled for 3 seconds ⇒ tripled for 5 seconds (Note: this tooltip is bugged and will not reflect the change until the next patch.)


Large adjustments to passive. Q damage decreased, cooldown decreased. W damage decreased, damage reduction adjusted. E damage decreased, damage to non champions increased.

In this patch, we’re making several adjustments to Galio with the goal of making his damage more consistent over fights and to increase his synergy with more durable AP items such as Rod of Ages and Riftmaker. The largest change we’re making is an increase to his Passive cadence throughout the game in order to require Galio to be in melee range for longer to access his full potential (this does however come at the cost of some damage). Since these changes incentivize Galio to use his passive more, we’d like to make it feel better to use by increasing his attack speed while it’s up.

The second largest change here is a new health ratio on his W, which should make purchasing AP and health items feel much better. The rest of the changes are focused on ensuring tank Galio doesn’t become too strong by toning down base damage while ensuring we keep the AP ratios high. Lastly, we’re including a buff to his E waveclear, as we expect these changes to hurt his waveclear due to the base damage nerf on his passive.

Passive - Colossal Smash

  • Magic Damage: 15-200 (based on level) (+100% AD) (+50% AP) (+60% bonus magic resistance) ⇒ 15-115 (based on level) (+100% AD) (+40% AP) (+60% bonus magic resistance)
  • newHitting enemy champions or Epic monsters with abilities reduces this cooldown by 3 seconds, once per cast.
  • newColossal Smash now triggers spell effects.
  • newGalio now gains 40% attack speed while his passive is available.
  • removedColossal Smash is no longer affected by Ability Haste.

Q - Winds of War

  • Magic Damage: 70/105/140/175/210 (+75% AP) ⇒ 70/105/140/175/210 (+70% AP)
  • Cooldown: 12/11/10/9/8 ⇒ 12/10.75/9.5/8.25/7 seconds

W - Shield of Durand

  • Magic Damage Reduction: 25/30/35/40/45% (+5% per 100 AP) (+12% per 100 bonus magic resistance) ⇒ 20/25/30/35/40% (+4% per 100 AP) (+8% per 100 bonus magic resistance) (+ 1% per 100 bonus health)
  • Minimum Magic Damage: 20/35/50/65/80 (+30% AP) ⇒ 20/30/40/50/60 (+30% AP)

E - Justice Punch

  • Magic Damage: 90/130/170/210/250 (+90% AP) ⇒ 75/115/155/195/235 (+90% AP)
  • Reduced Damage to Non-Champions: 50% ⇒ 20%


  • Galio's passive now correctly executes minions when using the support item.


Base health decreased. Q mana cost increased.

Gragas is currently performing too well in solo queue, particularly in higher skill brackets, so we’ll be nerfing him there specifically. We’re doing this by reducing his base health, as it’s currently quite high, which should increase his early vulnerability and give his opponents more of a window to kill him, while also slightly reducing some of his passive power. We’re also including a nerf to his Q mana cost to reduce how frequently he can spam his Q before purchasing items.

Base Stats

  • Base Health: 670 ⇒ 640

Q - Barrel Roll

  • Mana Cost: 80/75/70/65/60 ⇒ 80 at all ranks


Mana growth decreased, mana regeneration growth increased. Passive cooldown refund decreased. Q mana cost increased. R cooldown increased, E+R bonus shield increased.

Right now Karma is a reasonably powerful support but an oppressive mid laner who makes it difficult to do anything against her in the mid game. We want Mantra to be a button that she has to consider when to press and think of the best situations to use it. With Karma’s easy access to Ultimate Haste, that strategic choice has lost value as she’s casting Mantra too frequently. We have some nerfs to address this, but plan to offset these for support Karma by shifting her toward mana regen and including a buff to Defiance to preserve its current power level.

Base Stats

  • Mana Growth: 50 ⇒ 40
  • Mana Regeneration Growth: 0.5 ⇒ 0.8

Passive - Gathering Fire

  • Cooldown Refund: 5 seconds ⇒ 4 seconds

Q - Inner Flame

  • Mana Cost: 45 ⇒ 40/50/60/70/80

R - Mantra

  • Cooldown: 40/37/34/31 ⇒ 40/38/36/34 seconds
  • R+E Defiance Bonus Shield: 25/75/125/175 (+45% AP) ⇒ 50/90/130/170 (+45% AP)


Darkin Q damage increased, Q animation now prevents use of item actives. Shadow Assassin R damage decreased.

Thanks to the last patch, fighter items now appear to be optimal on Rhaast. So mission accomplished there! That said, Kayn's two forms are still pretty far apart in power level, so we’re nerfing Shadow Assassin and buffing Darkin a bit more. We’re also specifically hitting his ability to activate items during his Q, as those items are meant to have their own cast times without being hidden inside of other spells.

Q - Reaping Slash

  • Darkin - Damage per Hit: 65% Total AD + 5 (+3.5% bonus AD)% target's maximum health ⇒ 65% Total AD + 6 (+3.5% bonus AD)% target's maximum health
  • newReaping Slash's animation now locks Kayn out of using item actives.

R - Umbral Trespass

  • Damage: 150/250/350 (+175% Bonus AD) ⇒ 150/250/350 (+150% Bonus AD) (Note: This does not affect Darkin form ultimate damage.)


E cooldown decreased.

Ornn is a little sad but isn’t quite as bad as some stats may lead you to believe, as experienced Ornn players are optimizing him by lowering their Searing Charge cooldown in the mid game by maxing it second. We’d like if E and Q max second were a little closer in power level, so we’re giving some of that E max power for free as an early game buff to everyone and a late game buff to players who continue to max Q second.

E - Searing Charge

  • Cooldown: 16/15/14/13/12 ⇒ 14/13.5/13/12.5/12 seconds


W bugfix. R QoL change and bugfix.

When we changed Burrow to always damage everyone inside the circle, we mistakenly removed its ability to always hit her auto-attack target, regardless of its actual range. We’re returning that functionality to this patch in addition to fixing another bug where her R could fail to cast in very specific scenarios.

W - Burrow

  • Bugfix: Attacks should now always damage and knock up the primary target when right-clicking, even with enhanced range via Milio or Rapid Firecannon. This was also partially fixed in a micropatch during 14.5.

R - Void Rush

  • QoL Update: R can now be queued up from outside of cast range, prompting Rek'Sai to walk into range to cast the spell
  • Bugfix: Fixed a bug where if Rek'Sai was stunned on the very next frame after casting R, it would fail


Passive Mist Wraith drop rate decreased.

While we think Senna is appropriately powerful as a support in the hands of most players, she’s currently far too strong as a farming bot laner. While we targeted both her primary roles last patch, we’re specifically reducing the power of her bot lane carry performance this time.

Passive - Absolution

  • Mist Wraith Spawn Rate on Minion Kill: 8.333% ⇒ 2.8%


Passive cooldown adjusted.

Shen is a unique tank with strong 1v1 dueling potential and we’d like to make sure he continues to live up to that standard. So this patch we’re amping up his mid-game selfish combat power by adjusting the scaling of his passive’s cooldown refund for better trading potential.

Passive - Ki Barrier

  • Cooldown Refund: 4/4.5/5/5.5/6/6.5/7/7.5 (levels 1/6/9/12/14/16/17/18) ⇒ 4-7.5 (linear level scaling) (Note: This is a buff from levels 2-17 and is most pronounced at levels 8-16.)


Q damage increased. W shield increased.

Once Sion lost his hard-binding to Heartsteel, he lost a lot of scaling, a lot of damage, and a lot of functional health, since the whole system fed back into itself. This patch, we’re attempting to bring Sion back to his scaling tank glory days, letting him truly shine in games where he’s performing well.

Q - Decimating Smash

  • Minimum Damage: 40/60/80/100/120 (+45/52.5/60/67.5/75% total AD) ⇒ 40/60/80/100/120 (+40/50/60/70/80% total AD)
  • Maximum Damage: 90/155/220/285/350 (+135/157.5/180/202.5/225% Total AD) ⇒ 90/155/220/285/350 (+120/150/180/210/240% Total AD)

W - Soul Furnace

  • Shield: 60/85/110/135/160 (+8/9/10/11/12% maximum health) ⇒ 60/75/90/105/120 (+8/10/12/14/16% maximum health)


Q execute threshold decreased, conditions adjusted. W width decreased. E movement speed decreased.

Smolder is just a lil guy, but this lil guy’s dream of scaling with his stacks can feel like an inevitable nightmare for his opponents. While we don’t believe he’ll be problematic in the long term, there are quite a few frustrating or overpowered parts of his kit right now that we’re looking to address this patch. First, his execute scaling based on stacks has been too powerful, so we’re capping it at 6.5%. Second, the safety from his E and mismatched hitbox with his W visuals can be quite frustrating to go up against and help him scale more easily, so we’re nerfing them both with the goal of making Smolder’s early game weaknesses more noticeable for players that find themselves matched up against him.

Q - Super Scorcher Breath

  • Execute Threshold: 2% (+0.025 % per stack) ⇒ 6.5% (Note: This started at 7.625% at 225 stacks.)
  • Execute Conditions: Smolder only checks to execute units after Smolder's damage, meaning it will no longer execute off of allies' damage.


  • Missile Radius: 125 ⇒ 115

E - Flap, Flap, Flap

  • Movement Speed: 100% ⇒ 75%


Attack speed growth increased.

Tryndamere lost some power back in the patch 14.4 nerf to Lethal Tempo, so we'd like to give some back in a way that doesn't buff his level 1 all-in. In this patch, we’re giving him some more Attack Speed growth as compensation for his primary rune being nerfed, as he didn't deserve (nor have room for) the collateral damage there.

Base Stats

  • Attack Speed Growth: 2.9% ⇒ 3.4%


Q bonus movement speed decreased. R cooldown increased.

Volibear jungle is currently performing too well after our recent buffs and we’re back this patch to rein him in a bit. We’ll be walking back on some of the Q bonus movement speed and R cooldown buffs, but overall ensuring they’re still meaningfully stronger than before.

Q - Thundering Smash

  • Bonus Movement Speed: 12/17/22/27/32% ⇒ 12/16/20/24/28% (Note: This is doubled when moving towards visible enemy champions.)

R - Stormbringer

  • Cooldown: 130/115/100 ⇒ 140/120/100 seconds



Crit marksmen as a whole feel pretty sad right now, so we’d like to power up the subclass as a whole. We’re doing this through their big-ticket multipliers and amping up their specific strengths as tank busters so that they strategically stand out from other marksmen who peak earlier in the game.

Infinity Edge

  • Critical Strike Damage: 40% ⇒ 50%

Navori Quickblades

  • Item Recipe: Pickaxe + Caulfield's Warhammer + Cloak of Agility + 725 gold ⇒ B.F. Sword + Caulfield's Warhammer + Cloak of Agility + 300 gold (Note: Total cost unchanged.)
  • Attack Damage: 60 ⇒ 65

Lord Dominik's Regards

  • Armor Penetration: 30% ⇒ 35%

Mortal Reminder

  • Armor Penetration: 30% ⇒ 35%


In this patch we’re updating the rules around Doran’s Blade/Ring/Shield, World Atlas, Runic Compass, and the Jungle egg “Starter” items. Owning one Starter item listed here precludes you from buying the others. This means supports who start with a Doran’s Blade or Doran’s Ring will be unable to buy their support quests without first selling their Doran’s item and Junglers will be unable to buy an early Doran’s until they finish evolving their pet. We’re doing this to maintain Doran’s items as exclusive tools for laners as a way of giving them early agency over other roles (jungle and support) who aren't innately tied to being in lane and thus are more easily able to 2v1 or 3v1 their opponents. For more context, make sure to read about the support item changes below.
  • One at a Time: Doran's Blade, Doran's Ring, and Doran's Shield may no longer be purchased if World Atlas or Runic Compass is already in the player's inventory. This also applies to the Mosstomper, Gustwalker, and Scorchclaw starting jungle items. Growing your jungle pet all the way and upgrading your support item to its final form removes this restriction.


Supports have gained a lot of power this season, specifically from their ability to hit two-item spikes (such as Zaz’Zak’s plus Liandry’s) very quickly. In this patch, we’re delaying their “second” item by lowering the amount of upfront gold that comes from their support items while still allowing their wards and quest completion to come in at the same time.

Additionally, we’re hitting PVP—specifically ranged PVP gold—slightly more than the other sources. These changes are meant to slightly weaken roaming as a method of quest completion and also bring ranged and melee users closer to quest completion parity, as ranged champions typically complete their quests 10-15 seconds faster than their melee counterparts.

We’re also delivering another direct nerf to Solstice Sleigh. Last patch we got its power level very close to where we wanted it but it needs one more small hit to get to an appropriate power level.

World Atlas

  • Gold per Minion Kill: 20 ⇒ 15
  • Gold on Damage to Champions (Melee): 30 ⇒ 22
  • Gold on Damage to Champions (Ranged): 28 ⇒ 20
  • Gold Required for Upgrade: 500 ⇒ 400
  • newWorld Atlas is no longer able to be built if Doran's Blade, Doran's Ring, or Doran's Shield are in the player's inventory.

Runic Compass

  • Gold per Minion Kill: 28 ⇒ 20
  • Gold on Damage to Champions (Melee): 34 ⇒ 24
  • Gold on Damage to Champions (Ranged): 32 ⇒ 22
  • Gold Required for Upgrade: 1000 ⇒ 800
  • newRunic Compass is no longer able to be built if Doran's Blade, Doran's Ring, or Doran's Shield are in the player's inventory.

Solstice Sleigh

  • Bonus Movement Speed: 25% for 3 seconds ⇒ 20% for 2.5 seconds (Note: Bonus health duration also decreased to 2.5 seconds.)


In this patch we’re taking a pass on Epic items with a couple goals in mind. First, we want to lower the number of times a lane can feel “over” due to one gank or single kill. The gold and experience difference will still be valuable, but the advantage doesn’t need to compound with overly strong early item spikes. We’re preserving the full power of Legendary items and making sure that you have to wait for those item spikes to really surge ahead of their opponents. Second, with piecemeal Epic items like Serrated Dirk being so easy to purchase, even when you had 1300 gold for an expensive component like B.F. Sword or Needlessly Large Rod, it was frequently incorrect to buy them. With those more expensive components being more difficult to buy, we believe that players should be rewarded when they’re able to make those big ticket component purchases.

Additionally, we’re doing some light cleanup on Glacial Buckler and Steel Sigil, whose build paths are now cleaner, and Spectre’s Cowl, whose completed Legendary items simply gave health regen instead of the Incorporeal passive.

Bami's Cinder

  • Immolation Damage: 12 (+1% bonus health) ⇒ 13 (+0.5% bonus health)

Caulfield's Warhammer

  • Attack Damage: 25 ⇒ 20

The Brutalizer

  • Lethality: 8 ⇒ 5


  • Total Cost: 1100 gold ⇒ 1150 gold

Verdant Barrier

  • Total Cost: 1800 gold ⇒ 1700 gold



This patch, we’re changing the shield buff that Voidgrubs receive to a heal. This is intended to eliminate any confusion on when to smite a Voidgrub since the shield was not accounted for in the displayed health amount. This should function fairly similarly to before and we hope this change helps junglers with timing their smite and securing that sweet, voidy, grubby buff.
  • Voidgrub Death Buff: On death, remaining Voidgrubs receive a 25% maximum and missing health shield that decays over 10 seconds ⇒ On death, remaining Voidgrubs receive a 30% maximum and missing health heal that decays over 10 seconds. Any excess healing temporarily increases their maximum health.
  • The Voidgrub buff VFX will now stay throughout the entire duration of the buff.

ARAM Balance Changes

In this patch, we have a few straightforward damage dealt and taken adjustments, but we’re also trying out something new with Ziggs. We’ve seen players get frustrated by the flat 20% damage reduction nerf Ziggs has on ARAM, but we want to be cautious with his overall power level so he doesn’t insta-win games. We’re giving him some damage back this patch, but aiming to keep him in check by decreasing the amount of damage he can do to structures. Let us know how you like this one!

We also want to reassure you that Smolder is definitely on our watch list, but since he’s getting nerfed this patch we want to see how those changes land on ARAM before potentially overnerfing the lad.


  • Alistar: Damage Taken: 110% ⇒ 105%
  • Diana: Damage Taken: 100% ⇒ 95%
  • Lillia: Damage Dealt: 90% ⇒ 95%
  • Ornn: Damage Taken: 110% ⇒ 105%
  • Twisted Fate: Damage Dealt: 95% ⇒ 100%


  • Janna: Q Cooldown: 14 ⇒ 16 seconds; Shielding Done: 90% ⇒ 95%
  • Ziggs: W Tower Execute: 25/27.5/30/32.5/35% ⇒ 12.5/15/17.5/20/22.5% of tower's maximum health; Passive Damage to Structures: 250% ⇒ 150%; Damage Dealt: 80% ⇒ 85%

Upcoming Skins & Chromas

The following chromas will be released this patch:

Patch 14.5 Notes

Plug in and get ready to game, it's time for Patch 14.5!

In this week's patch we're taking a beat to make follow up changes on some adjustments from previous patches like Seraphine, Rek'Sai, and Smolder while addressing a handful of champions that are currently overperforming. Additionally, we're continuing tuning on some support items to adjust their power curves and create more parity between them and opening up itemization options for AP assassins.

In other news we also have the Season 2024 Split 1 ranked end date and times, a round of ARAM balance changes, and some new additions to the PROJECT skinline!

Patch Highlights

PROJECT: Naafiri, PROJECT: Jax, and PROJECT: Gangplank will be available March 6, 2024 at 20:00 UTC.

Ranked Split 1 and 2 Timing

Now that we're two months into Season 2024 Split 1 we wanted to take a moment to share the Split 1 end date so players with ambitious ranked goals (or those that have been procrastinating their climbs like me) can plan ahead!
  • Split 1 End Date: May 14, 2024 at 23:59:59 according to your server's local time
  • Split 2 Start Date: May 15, 2024 at 12:00:00 according to your server's local time
  • Bugfix: We're aware of a bug that is causing the ranked countdown timer in the client to count down to the Split 1 end date based on last year's end date. We have a fix prepared and it will be going live in Patch 14.6 to match the dates and times mentioned above.



E damage reduction decreased. Bugfix to passive that gave Bel'Veth too many stacks from Epic Void monsters.

Bel'Veth is currently the Empress of the Void and dueling in the early game. The damage reduction coming from her E is a key contributor to this, so we're bringing it down a notch while also addressing some grub bugs that were working in her favor.

Passive - Death In Lavender

  • Bugfix: Fixed a bug that caused Bel'Veth to get three stacks for each Epic Void monster. She now properly gets two Death in Lavender stacks per Void Grub (for a total of six if she gets all three of them) and two for Rift Herald.

E - Royal Maelstrom

  • Damage Reduction: 42/49/56/63/70% ⇒ 35/40/45/50/55%


Passive damage to monsters increased. R damage decreased, cooldown increased.

While we feel Brand's power level is appropriate in the jungle, he's far too dominant in mid and support in Platinum and below. As such, we'll be reducing his explosive burst damage, which is disproportionately more powerful in these skill brackets.

Passive - Blaze

  • Damage to Monsters: 200% ⇒ 215%

R - Pyroclasm

  • Damage per Hit: 100/200/300 (+25% AP) ⇒ 100/175/250 (+25% AP)
  • Cooldown: 105/90/75 ⇒ 110/100/90 seconds


Q damage decreased.

Evelynn has been dominating the top skill brackets of solo queue for a while now, so we're taking a swing at how quickly she can snowball with a gold (and Dark Seal stack) lead.

Q - Hate Spike

  • Damage: 25/30/35/40/45 (+30% AP) ⇒ 25/30/35/40/45 (+25% AP)

Jarvan IV

Armor growth increased. Q cooldown decreased.

After the changes to Spear of Shojin earlier this year, Jarvan no longer has to be tuned around excessively high ability haste. Since he's currently in need of a little extra power, we're reverting some changes we originally made when Shojin was much more powerful on him.

Base Stats

  • Armor Growth: 4.8 ⇒ 5.2

Q - Dragon Strike

  • Cooldown: 10/9.5/9/8.5/8 seconds ⇒ 10/9/8/7/6 seconds


Passive Darkin healing increased. R Darkin healing increased.

Red Kayn is currently feeling pretty blue. After losing access to Goredrinker and nerfs to his passive, he no longer feels like he's able to drain-tank fights and thus has to build lethality to do slightly better than if he were to build fighter items… which admittedly still isn't great. We'd like to raise the power level of Darkin Kayn while also nudging that performance toward fighter items, so we're opting to increase his self-healing which synergizes better with his fighter builds.

Passive - The Darkin Scythe

  • Darkin Bonus - Healing: 25% ⇒ 25% (+0.5% per 100 Bonus Health)

R - Umbral Trespass

  • Darkin Form Healing: 65% of damage dealt ⇒ 75% of damage dealt


Passive bonus movement speed increased. Q cast time adjusted. E slow increased. R damage increased.

Kog'Maw is a sad Void puppy who's very reliant on just his W. We're looking to reinforce that Kog'maw feels like his whole kit is useful and feels good for his primary playstyle. These changes include letting him weave Q into his pattern a bit more (this also might make Trinity a bit better which is a cool option for him, but not the goal here). We're also making E a spell worth casting, as currently a number of Kog'Maws (Kog'Mi?) don't even put points into E. Finally, we're making Kog'maw's passive a bit more reliable and buffing his R up in AD builds.

Passive - Icathian Surprise

  • Bonus Movement Speed: 0-40% over 4 seconds ⇒ 10-50% over 4 seconds

Q - Caustic Spittle

  • Cast Time: 0.25 seconds ⇒ now matches Kog'Maw's auto attack frame time

E - Void Ooze

  • Slow: 30/35/40/45/50% ⇒ 40/45/50/55/60%

R - Living Artillery

  • Minimum Damage: 100/140/180 (+65% bonus AD) (+35% AP) ⇒ 100/140/180 (+75% bonus AD) (+35% AP)


Base movement speed decreased. Q bonus damage to monsters increased. W cooldown increased.

Maokai is still performing far better than he needs to at support, although some of that is due to Solstice Sleigh being overpowered. We believe that a mix of Solstice getting nerfed this patch and some direct changes should get Maokai support into an appropriate state. But even if we're nerfing him as a support, we want to maintain his viability as a jungler, so we'll be hastening his first clear which has become pretty slow after the recent nerfs to his Q and E.

Base Stats

  • Base Movement Speed: 335 ⇒ 330

Q - Bramble Smash

  • Bonus Damage to Monsters: 80/100/120/140/160 ⇒ 120/130/140/150/160

W - Twisted Advance

  • Cooldown: 13/12/11/10/9 ⇒ 14/13/12/11/10 seconds


Base movement speed decreased. Cougar Q bonus damage to hunted targets decreased.

Nidalee is in a pretty stable place right now, but that's only if you look at Emerald and below. In high Diamond and above she's at Apex predator levels of powerful. In order to keep her in a good state for the majority of players, we're hitting her with some high skill skewed nerfs, namely her base mobility and Q follow up damage.

Base Stats

  • Base Movement Speed: 340 ⇒ 335

Q - Takedown

  • Bonus Damage to Hunted Targets: 40% ⇒ 30%


Various QoL updates and bugfixes. E damage and monster cap increased. R damage increased.

Rek'Sai's kit update has done a lot for raising interest (her play rate initially doubled) but she landed weaker than we hoped, so we're coming in with a large array of buffs. Most notably, her attack animations are being sped up and we're returning the un-cancelable Queen's Wrath attack, which was temporarily removed to prevent another bug that has since been fixed. Additionally, we're buffing her strongest E and R to help them have a satisfying amount of damage.

Base Stats

  • Attack Windup: 26.67% (+100% Attack Speed) ⇒ 20% (+60% Attack Speed) (Note: This means attacks take 25% less time to fully animate at level 1, down to 3% less time with Stridebreaker, runes, and Q active at level 18.)
  • Basic Attack Cast Frame: 12 ⇒ 10 (Note: This means attacks deal their damage about 20% earlier in the animation.)
  • Critical Strike Cast Frame: 9 ⇒ 10

Q - Queen's Wrath

  • QoL Change: Attacks can no longer be canceled mid-attack, now matches most other empowered attacks
  • Cast Frame: 12 ⇒ 9 (Note: This means the attack strikes the target about 33% earlier in the animation.)
  • Bugfix: Attacks now stack Spear of Shojin when hitting only one champion

W - Burrow / Unburrow

  • newAn Uplifting Change: Unburrow will now knock up all Large Monsters in range if they're eligible
  • newAn Non-Lifting Uplifting Change: Unburrow can now damage (but not knock up) targets who were recently knocked up and immune to Unburrow
  • Bugfix: Fixed a bug where Rek'Sai could stop auto-attacking after burrowing and quickly unburrowing

E - Tunnel

  • Bugfix In Progress: Reduced the frequency of a bug that caused Rek'Sai to occasionally fail to dash when crossing walls. We'll be keeping an eye out for more instances of this bug occurring and work to resolve them as we're able to.

E - Furious Bite

  • 100 Fury Bonus Damage: 6/8/10/12/14% of target's maximum health ⇒ 8/9.5/11/12.5/14% of target's maximum health
  • Monster Bonus Damage Cap: 60-400 (based on level) ⇒ 75-400 (based on level)

R - Void Rush

  • Damage: 100/250/400 (+100% bonus AD) (+20/25/30% of target's missing health) ⇒ 150/300/450 (+100% bonus AD) (+25/30/35% of target's missing health)


  • Made minor updates to tooltips to improve clarity.


Q damage decreased.

Senna is quite powerful at the moment, dominating as a conventional bot laner in Solo queue and as a support in Pro play. In order to bring her down a notch we're taking off a chunk of her Q AD scaling which should bring down her damage while preserving her utility outputs.

Q - Piercing Darkness

  • Damage: 30/60/90/120/150 (+50% bonus AD) ⇒ 30/60/90/120/150 (+40% bonus AD)


All abilities adjusted.

The vast majority of Seraphine's player base is in support, where she's currently critically weak. Typically, we'd just buff her, but she's also significantly overpowered as a bot lane AP carry, which means simpler tactics aren't available. So we're trying again to close the gap between these two roles while being mindful of what players find fun about her in each play style.

For APC Seraphine, we're playing up her repeated damage. Q's missile speed and execute damage against champions has gone up and E is now worthy of maxing over W with a better AP ratio to boot. As compensation, she's losing a lot of power against minions and a bit of top-end ultimate power.

For support Seraphine, we're embracing her various builds. There's a logical case for every conceivable skill order and we're trying to make those choices viable based upon what game you're facing: Want to be primarily about shielding? It should be equally viable to max Q or E instead. Want to cosplay as a full mage and just deal as much damage as possible? Go right ahead, we think that option should also be supported.

We're also delivering some small support-skewed changes like shifting her mana toward regeneration, which synergizes with the support item, plus some base move speed, which is more important to a more roam-centric role.

Base Stats

  • Movement speed: 325 ⇒ 330
  • Mana Growth: 50 ⇒ 25
  • Mana Regeneration: 0.4 ⇒ 0.95
  • Base AD: 55 ⇒ 50

Passive - Stage Presence

  • Damage: 5/10/18/30 (+5% AP) (levels 1/6/11/16) ⇒ 4-25 (based on level, linear) (+4% AP)
  • removed300% minion damage modifier has been removed

Q - High Note

  • Missile Speed: 1200 ⇒ 1300
  • Cooldown: 10/8.75/7.5/6.25/5 ⇒ 8/7.5/7/6.5/6 seconds
  • Mana Cost: 65/70/75/80/85 ⇒ 60/70/80/90/100
  • Damage: 55/80/105/130/155 (+50% AP) ⇒ 60/85/110/135/160 (+50% AP)
  • Maximum Damage Amp based on Missing Health: 50% ⇒ 60%
  • removedDamage amp no longer affects non-champions
  • removedNo longer prevents minions from dying to other minions while in flight

W - Surround Sound

  • Cooldown: 28/25/22/19/16 ⇒ 22/21/20/19/18 seconds
  • Mana Cost: 80/85/90/95/100 ⇒ 70/75/80/85/90
  • Shield: 50/75/100/125/150 (+20% AP) ⇒ 60/85/110/135/160 (+20% AP)
  • Seraphine Bonus Movement Speed: 20% (+4% AP) ⇒ 20% (+2% AP)

E - Beat Drop

  • Cooldown: 10 ⇒ 11/10.5/10/9.5/9 seconds
  • Mana Cost: 60/65/70/75/80 ⇒ 60 at all ranks
  • Damage: 60/95/130/165/200 (+35% AP) ⇒ 70/100/130/160/190 (+50% AP)
  • Slow Duration: 1.25 ⇒ 1.1/1.2/1.3/1.4/1.5 seconds
  • Minion Damage: 100% ⇒ 70%

R - Encore

  • Damage: 150/200/250 (+60% AP) ⇒ 150/200/250 (+40% AP)
  • Cooldown: 160/130/100 ⇒ 160/140/120 seconds


Base armor increased.

Sivir has been weak for a while, and while examining where we could give her some power, we noticed that with such a short attack range, it's hard for her to have an interactive laning phase. As such we're bringing her up to a much higher base armor value to let her trade and scrap in lane more effectively.

Base Stats

  • Base Armor: 26 ⇒ 30


Q damage adjusted. E bolt quantity adjusted. R damage decreased, sweet spot damage increased, self heal increased.

Smolder is currently in a healthy spot and we’re generally happy with how he’s landed on the Rift. In this patch we’re making some adjustments to how he scales and interacts with the item system to disincentivize tankier builds and to put even more emphasis on his stacking and late game dragon fantasy. We also want proactive E casts to matter more for all builds, not just crit ones. Finally, R’s sweet spot mechanic is a little underemphasized so we’re aiming to make it matter more!

Q - Super Scorcher Breath

  • 3rd Upgrade Bonus True Damage: 6.5% of target's maximum health ⇒ +2% bonus AD (+1% AP) (+0.8% of Dragon Patience Stacks) of target's maximum health

E - Flap, Flap, Flap

  • Number of Bolts: 5-10 (based on critical strike chance) ⇒ 5 (+1 per 50 Dragon Patience Stacks)
  • Tooltip has been updated to clarify that these bolts are not attacks

R - Mmooommmm!

  • Damage: 225/350/475 (+110% bonus AD) (+100% AP) ⇒ 200/300/400 (+110% bonus AD) (+100% AP)
  • Sweet Spot Increased Damage Multiplier: 30% ⇒ 50%
  • Self Heal: 110/160/210 (+75% AP) ⇒ 100/135/170 (+50% bonus AD) (+75% AP)


  • Frame data on basic attacks has been adjusted to better match Smolder's animations.

Twisted Fate

E bonus attack speed and damage decreased.

Twisted Fate's continuing to soar up the ban rate charts while being a top performer, even with the recent nerfs. Ultimately, we want to ensure AP Twisted Fate is the stronger way to play him while also getting AD Twisted Fate into the “viable” category of champion builds. But at the end of the day we don't want AD TF to be stronger than other champions in their respective roles.

E - Stacked Deck

  • Bonus Attack Speed: 10/22.5/35/47.5/60% ⇒ 10/20/30/40/50%
  • Bonus Damage: 65/90/115/140/165 (+75% bonus AD) (+40% AP) ⇒ 65/90/115/140/165 (+20% bonus AD) (+40% AP)


Passive bonus movement speed decreased. Q cooldown increased early.

The Vayne changes from 13.6 did a lot to give her a fighting chance in early trades in lane, but at this point it's become clear that Vayne is just far too strong, especially as a top laner. We'd like to preserve Tumble as a satisfying button to press in the early game as it gives her a fighting chance against other ranged champions, but don't want her choking out and running down her melee competition in top lane.

Passive - Night Hunter

  • Bonus Movement Speed: 45 ⇒ 30 (Note: Bonus movement speed during Final Hour will be unchanged at 90.)

Q - Tumble

  • Cooldown: 4/3.5/3/2.5/2 ⇒ 6/5/4/3/2 seconds


Q damage increased. R cooldown decreased.

Season 14 nerfed Rabadon’s Deathcap’s AP multiplier, and we’ve generally lowered the AP ratios on items, which haven’t been the kindest to Veigar. Despite our efforts in Patch 14.2 he’s still coming up a bit short compared to where we’d like him to be in terms of power. In this patch we’ll be giving him a small buff to his Q to help it hit a little harder and easier to stack with, while also giving him a bit more threat with his ultimate in the earlier stages of the game.

Q - Baleful Strike

  • Damage: 80/120/160/200/240 (+45/50/55/60/65% AP) ⇒ 80/120/160/200/240 (+50/55/60/65/70% AP)

R - Primordial Burst

  • Cooldown: 120/90/60 ⇒ 100/80/60 seconds


Passive damage increased. E and passive interaction adjusted.

Vex doesn’t quite have the damage she needs to chain together multikills like she could last season, so we’re amping her damage when played as an anti-mobility mage.

Passive - Doom ‘n Gloom

  • Gloom Detonation Damage: 30-140 (based on level) (+20% AP) ⇒ 40-150 (based on level) (+25% AP)

E - Looming Darkness

  • newKilling units with Looming Darkness now grants Doom ‘n Gloom's passive refund.


Passive maximum stack decreased, percent amplification per stack increased, stack falloff rate adjusted.

Wukong isn't performing quite as well as we'd like him to in the top lane, and his current state has him a bit too late game skewed, so we're making some changes to his passive this patch to make him a bit more powerful in the early game. As it is today, his passive regularly hits max stacks as a jungler when he's fighting camps, but struggles to get value against champions in lane. These changes should help him get more out of his passive in lane while also slightly helping his jungle performance.

Passive - Stone Skin

  • Maximum Number of Stacks: 10 ⇒ 5
  • Percent Amplification per Stack: 50% ⇒ 100%
  • Stack Falloff Rate: All at once ⇒ One at a time


E bonus damage to cursed enemies decreased. R Maiden armor and magic resist increased, no longer reduces AoE damage by 50%, bugfix to Evasion interaction.

In her current state, the Maiden of the Mist is currently too tanky against some champions while simultaneously being too squishy into others. Our goal with these changes is to make facing Maiden a more consistent experience for opponents that find themselves matched up against her while also lowering Yorick's overall power which is currently just a tad over the line.

Passive - Shepherd of Souls

  • Tooltip clarified to state that only Mist Walkers take reduced damage from monsters.

E - Mourning Mist

  • Cursed Bonus Damage for 8 Attacks: 30% ⇒ 20%

R - Eulogy of the Isles

  • Maiden Armor and Magic Resist: 10-50 (based on level) ⇒ 30-90 (based on level)
  • removedMaiden no longer reduces Area of Effect damage by 50%.
  • Tooltip now clarifies that Maiden takes 70% less damage from lane minions.
  • Bugfix: Maiden's 1/2/3% maximum health damage no longer bypasses Evasion like Shen's W. (Note: Blind, Dodge, and Evasion all work appropriately against the rest of Maiden's attacks.)


W damage decreased.

Zac has been taking over top lane, but his power as a jungler is still in a relatively healthy spot. So we're aiming to give him some top lane specific nerfs. Since top lane Zac maxes W first while jungle Zac maxes E first, reducing the scaling per rank on his W should bring down his power up top while minimally affecting his jungle power (if not giving it a very small boost at rank 1 for early clearing).

W - Unstable Matter

  • Damage: 35/50/65/80/95 (+4/5/6/7/8% (+3% per 100 AP) of target's maximum health) ⇒ 40/50/60/70/80 (+4/5/6/7/8% (+3% per 100 AP) of target's maximum health)


Celestial Opposition

While we're nerfing Solstice Sleigh this patch (more on that below), we want to also give Celestial Opposition a bit more power to help dethrone Sleigh's position as the premier tank support item as simply nerfing Sleigh wouldn't quite be enough to close the gap between the two. We're primarily targeting melee-specific outputs as we don't want it to become dominant on enchanters.

  • Cooldown: 20 ⇒ 18 seconds
  • Slow Duration: 1.5 ⇒ 2 seconds
  • Slow Strength: 50% ⇒ 60%

Dream Maker

Following up on our work last patch, we're continuing to retune the support items to make their power spikes less immediate and, in exchange, making their scaling into the late game more powerful and we expect these changes to scaling to do just that. As a whole, we hope these changes will be slightly power positive on most enchanters.

  • Blue Bubble Damage Reduction: 140 ⇒ 75-255 (levels 6-18)
  • Purple Bubble Bonus Damage: 90 ⇒ 50-170 (levels 6-18)

Frozen Heart

Frozen Heart is currently the most built tank item in the game. For a niche item that is hyper focused on hampering one specific style of one damage type, that means the item is overperforming. This patch we're nerfing Frozen Heart's more generic strengths in order to preserve its usefulness as a specific counter as opposed to a generic tank item.

  • Total Price: 2400 gold ⇒ 2500 gold
  • Armor: 70 ⇒ 65


Heartsteel currently isn't worth purchasing on many champions, even those with respectable health ratios or easy access to the gameplay pattern this item is built to support. In this patch we'll be buffing the item's scaling while keeping the early game similar to let players live their best bonking fantasy. (Note: the tooltip in 14.5 will not reflect this change, but we're working on having it corrected in 14.6.)

  • Proc Bonus Damage: 100 (+10% bonus health from items) ⇒ 80 (+12% bonus health from items)

Leviathan (Ornn Upgrade)

  • Proc Bonus Damage: 100 (+10% bonus health from items) ⇒ 80 (+12% bonus health from items)
  • Bugfix: Fixed a bug that gave Leviathan 25 Ability Haste

Solstice Sleigh

Solstice Sleigh is currently sleighing as the best tank support upgrade option, outperforming Celestial Opposition by a large margin. In order to bring this item into line with other options we need to bring its power down.

  • Cooldown: 20 ⇒ 30 seconds
  • Bonus Health: 7% of maximum health ⇒ 50-230 (levels 6-18)
  • Bonus Movement Speed: 30% ⇒ 25%
  • Item tracker flavor text updated

Spear of Shojin

Our goal with these Shojin changes is to make it synergize better with champions that should be primary users of the items, so these should help move it in the right direction for those champs. (Note: This change was implemented in Patch 14.4.)

  • Spells now only grant 1 stack per cast, up to 1 per second for spells that deal damage over time
  • Attack-based spells now add a stack and get their damage improved by the spell amp
  • Damage from champion passives should no longer grant stacks for Focused Will

Sunfire Aegis

Based on our reads back in Patch 14.1, Sunfire Aegis was over performing and required a tap down in power. However, now that the dust has settled, it's become apparent that these nerfs weren't necessary, so we're walking them back now.

  • Health: 450 ⇒ 500
  • Immolate Base Damage: 12 ⇒ 15

AP Assassin Items

A few of our AP assassin items are mistuned, leading to players in higher skill brackets to almost always buying the same items, regardless of which specific AP assassin they're playing. We're hoping to nudge up some level of choice by making these three items closer together in power level.

Lich Bane

  • Spellblade Damage: 75% base AD (+50% AP) ⇒ 75% base AD (+45% AP)


  • Movement Speed: +5% ⇒ +8%

Hextech Rocketbelt

  • Total Price: 2500 ⇒ 2600
  • Ability Power: 60 ⇒ 70

ARAM Balance Changes

In this round of ARAM balance changes we're looking to inject some new life into tanks that we haven't touched for a while now that we have a better read on where they've landed within the new item system. We're also looking to make Camille and Naafiri a bit more approachable for players by giving them some additional Ability Haste and thus creating more opportunities for them to use their abilities within any given game.

On the nerfs side of things we're doing follow up work on some of the 14.4 changes geared towards Summoner's Rift gameplay that pushed some champions a bit over the line in ARAM. We're also giving Zac a small ARAM specific nerf this patch (in addition to the SR ones he's getting) while doubling down on Illaoi's healing as she's proven to be resilient to the changes last patch thanks to Sundered Sky and her E.


  • Camille: Shielding Done: 120% ⇒ 110%; Ability Haste: 0 ⇒ 10
  • Dr. Mundo: Damage Taken: 110% ⇒ 105%
  • Naafiri: Ability Haste: 0 ⇒ 10
  • Nasus: Damage Taken: 110% ⇒ 105%


  • Anivia: Damage Taken: 95% ⇒ 100%
  • Illaoi: Healing Done: 90% ⇒ 80%
  • Karma: Damage Dealt: 100% ⇒ 95%
  • Lulu: Shielding Done: 110% ⇒ 105%
  • Renekton: Healing Done: 120% ⇒ 105%
  • Zac: Healing Done: 120% ⇒ 110%

Patch 14.4 Notes

Hold the door! Here comes patch 14.4!

In this week's patch we have quite a few feels-good-to-play quality of life updates for some gameplay systems and champions. To kick things off we have a kit update for Rek'Sai, an update to help tethers in game feel more responsive, and some follow-up QoL adjustments for Smolder. We also have some feels-good-to-play-against changes to make champions like Illaoi, Fiora, and tank Bard more reasonable if you find yourself matched up with them. We're also making some updates to support power curves, fountain regeneration, Lost Chapter items, adjustments to Emerald+ LP gains, and ARAM!

In other news, this is the patch where we update our minimum specs to no longer support Windows 7, 8, and 8.1, so make sure you upgrade! We also have an update on the Vanguard rollout plan, so make sure you read the full section below for all the details.

On the TFT side of things, it's the Remix Rumble Championship patch, so make sure you're all caught up on the TFT patch notes here!
Lilu "Riot Riru" Cabreros

Patch Highlights

Porcelain Protector Aurelion Sol, Porcelain Darius, Porcelain Graves, Porcelain Morgana, Porcelain Miss Fortune, Porcelain Irelia, Prestige Porcelain Kindred, and Victorious Tryndamere will be available on February 22, 2024 at 20:00 UTC.


We've been communicating in the past few patch notes that Vanguard was coming, but after some time on the PBE testing the diagnostics check, we've elected to change the rollout plan. Instead of a Global rollout, we're going to be releasing in a single region first with patch 14.5. This allows us time on live servers to evaluate how Vanguard is functioning and being experienced before making adjustments if required.

For more information on Vanguard or help making sure you're ready for Vanguard please check out our support article so that you can continue to play League once Vanguard is required.

Windows Min Spec Update

As of this patch, our minimum system requirements have been updated and we will no longer be supporting Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 for all League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics games. To maintain the stability and performance of our games, we sometimes need to deprecate support for legacy operating systems that aren't widely used by our players. If you're still playing on these versions of Windows, please consider updating to continue playing. Please see our min spec support page for more details.



Health growth increased. Q damage increased.

With the removal of Everfrost, Ahri lost a lot of the reliability an additional root could create and the durability the item provided. We want to give her power back in some more exciting aspects of her kit, so we're increasing the damage of her Q for two reasons. First, when it came down to more reliability versus more damage, we thought Ahri players would appreciate more potent damage. Second, being able to land both parts of her Q also rewarded more skill expression. We're also giving her a bit more health so she can afford to take some damage while she's kiting around fights with her ultimate.

Base Stats

  • Health Growth: 96 ⇒ 104

Q - Orb of Deception

  • Magic Damage per Pass: 40/65/90/115/140 (+45% AP) ⇒ 40/65/90/115/140 (+50% AP)

Aurelion Sol

Q Bonus Magic DPS decreased.

Aurelion Sol is still performing too well and we've decided to reduce some more of his power. He now gets more stacks from Q, both because the stack gain was increased and also because he can cast it more frequently due to the potent mana buffs. We'd like to retain how well it stacks and scales with Stardust, but nerf its AP ratio and some base damage to account for that.

Q - Breath of Light

  • Bonus Magic Damage per Second: 60 / 70 / 80 / 90 / 100 (+ 35% AP) (+ (3.1% Stardust)% of target's maximum health ⇒ 55 / 65 / 75 / 85 / 95 (+ 30% AP) (+ (3.1% Stardust)% of target's maximum health


Armor growth decreased, level 1 attack speed and attack speed ratio increased. Passive bonus damage increased. Q damage increased.

Bard is currently quite powerful and is especially durable due to having more than enough base values on his kit to not require anything but tank items. In this patch, we're closing the gap between tank and mage/enchanter-style builds by lowering his base values while preserving his AP scaling to nudge him toward those purchases more often. On top of that, he gets a guaranteed 200 HP from the new support items, so he's generally a bit too durable.

As one final set of changes, we're making discharging Meeps feel a bit better by increasing his overall attack speed. Nashor's Tooth, anyone?

Base Stats

  • Armor Growth: 5.2 ⇒ 5
  • Level 1 Attack Speed: 0.625 ⇒ 0.658
  • Attack Speed Ratio: 0.625 ⇒ 0.658

Passive - Traveler's Call

  • Damage: 35 (+14 per 5 Chimes)(+30% AP) Bonus Magic Damage ⇒ 35 (+10 per 5 Chimes) (+40% AP) Bonus Magic Damage

Q - Cosmic Binding

  • Damage: 80/125/170/215/260 (+65% AP) ⇒ 80/120/160/200/240 (+80% AP)


W attack speed slow decreased.

In this patch, we want to address Fiora's trading pattern in certain matchups where her W attack speed slow is hard to answer when used as an opener. She's currently performing quite well and has room to lose some power, so we'll be halving the attack speed slow to provide more counterplay for players that find themselves matched up against the Grand Duelist.

W - Riposte

  • Attack Speed Slow: 50% for 2 seconds ⇒ 25% for 2 seconds


Passive damage decreased.

With last patch's tentacle range increase, Illaoi ended up being a bit more powerful than anticipated. As her full attack damage build is massively outperforming her tankier options, we're addressing her power by adjusting her passive damage.

Passive - Prophet of an Elder God

  • Damage: 9-162 (based on level) (+115% Total AD) ⇒ 9-162 (based on level) (+100% Total AD)


Base AD increased. W mana restoration increased and magic damage increased. E now roots enemies on initial cast.

Jayce's E sometimes suffered from a weird effect, occasionally throwing players in an odd direction when cast during an opponent's dash. To resolve this, we adjusted it to work more like Lee Sin's R, now rooting on cast. This also means it will no longer knock enemies outside of auto attack range when cast at max range.

Additionally, we're looking to flatten Jayce's power curve slightly, giving him a bit more agency (and mana) to skirmish in lane. This should make him less dependent on Muramana and make early mana runes feel more valuable.

Base Stats

  • Attack Damage: 57 ⇒ 59

W - Lightning Field

  • Mana Restore: 10/12/14/16/18/20 ⇒ 15/17/19/21/23/25
  • Magic Damage per Second: 35/50/65/80/95/110 ⇒ 40/55/70/85/100/115

E - Thundering Blow

  • newGrounded in Science: Now roots enemies on initial cast. (Note: Similar to Lee Sin's R root.)


Base health and mana increased. Q no longer slows during All Out. W bonus armor and magic resist ratio increased, no longer reduces minimum channel and cooldowns. E dash speeds decreased.

K'Sante doesn't leave a lot of room for counterplay during All Out (you might even say his opponents are all out of counter play options), so we're aiming to address his opponents' ability to outplay him, or at least give them the time to process what he's doing. We think that these changes will result in some degree of lost power, but we believe that these adjustments should help get K'Sante in an overall better state long term.

Base Stats

  • Base Health: 570 ⇒ 625
  • Base Mana: 290 ⇒ 320

Q - Ntofo Strikes

  • removedAll Out of Slows: No longer slows during All Out

W - Path Maker

  • Bonus Armor Ratio: 50% ⇒ 85%
  • Bonus Magic Resist Ratio: 50% ⇒ 85%
  • removedAll Out Minimum Channel Time: All Out no longer reduces the minimum channel to 0.5 seconds
  • removedAll Out Cooldown Reduction: All Out no longer reduces the cooldown to 18/16.5/15/13.5/12 seconds

E - Footwork

  • Dash Speed: 1500 ⇒ 900
  • Ally Dash Speed: 1800 ⇒ 1100 + Movement Speed
  • All Out Dash Speed: 2100 ⇒ 1450


Ult range increased.

Kai'Sa has been pretty weak this season but has begun to find her footing with Eclipse and Statikk Shiv starts, resulting in a steady climb to her pick and win rates. Even with this newfound tech, we think she's still a little bit underpowered so we're giving her a very small bump to her unique ability to join the fray at a moment's notice.

R - Killer Instinct

  • Cast Range: 1500/2250/3000 ⇒ 2000/2500/3000


Passive bugfix. E damage decreased.

Now that much of the Season Start dust has settled, Kalista has found herself as one of the premier bot laners in Pro play and we'd like to open that role up to a bit more variety. Also, she's receiving a meaningful bugfix this patch, so we're also compensating for that bit of extra power.

Passive - Martial Pose

  • Bugfix: Kalista now properly gains dash distance with basic Boots of Speed.

E - Rend

  • Physical Damage: 20/30/40/50/60 (+70% AD) (+20% AP) ⇒ 10/20/30/40/50 (+70% AD) (+20% AP) (Note: Per-stack damage unchanged.)


Q second bolt damage increased. E magic damage and shield value increased. R bonus health increased.

Lulu has been a bit taxed getting ready for Bandle Tale and all, so she's been slipping in League. But don't worry—we're here to help her get back up to full power! In this patch, we want to increase her power in a way that will feel exciting to her players, namely more poke damage for her opponents and more I-will-not-let-you-die-no-matter-how-hard-you-try power for her allies.

Q - Glitterlance

  • Second Bolt Damage: 25% of Primary Bolt damage ⇒ 50% of Primary Bolt damage

E - Help, Pix!

  • Magic Damage: 80/120/160/200/240 (+50% AP) ⇒ 80/125/170/215/260 (+50% AP)
  • Shield Value: 75/115/155/195/235 (+55% AP) ⇒ 80/125/170/215/260 (+55% AP)

R - Wild Growth

  • Bonus Health: 275/525/575 (+45% AP) ⇒ 275/525/575 (+55% AP)


Base armor decreased. Q damage decreased. R root duration decreased.

Maokai is currently still the best support in the game, branch hands down. And while last patch closed the gap between his power as a support and as a top laner/jungler, he's in a state where we simply need to siphon off some of his baseline power to keep him in check.

Base Stats

  • Base Armor: 39 ⇒ 35

Q - Bramble Smash

  • Magic Damage: 70/120/170/220/270 (+2/2.5/3/3.5/4% of the target's maximum health) (+40% AP) ⇒ 65/115/165/215/265 (+2/2.5/3/3.5/4% of the target's maximum health) (+40% AP)

R - Nature's Grasp

  • Root Duration: 0.8-2.6 seconds (based on distance traveled capped at 1000 units) ⇒ 0.75-2.25 seconds (based on distance traveled capped at 1000 units)


All abilities adjusted.

In her current state, Rek'Sai tends to feel non-functional as a fighter, causing her core builds to often be full lethality just to accomplish anything in game. This patch, we're hoping to give Rek'Sai some exciting things to do in early, mid, and late game. The primary buffs are substantially snappier tunnel usage and a super juiced passive that plays up her ability to weave in and out of combat to recoup health between cooldowns. As there's a lot of power in these gains, we'll be taking down her burst damage to prevent her from getting out of hand.

We also have a host of modernization and re-scripting updates to Rek'Sai. Queen's Wrath is now an auto attack instead of a spell, meaning it scales appropriately with attack speed. Tunnels no longer have hitches in the middle of their animations when you're entering them. Her cooldowns have been synced up to make jungling more intuitive as Burrow, Prey Seeker, and Unburrow will line up from level 2. These changes, in addition to a whole host of adjustments on the backend, should also make her easier to update going forward. One thing we'll be keeping our eyes on is her balance between fighter and tank builds, which will thankfully be really easy to tweak!

Base Stats

  • Base Movement Speed: 335 ⇒ 340
  • Base Health Regeneration: 7.5 ⇒ 2.5
  • Health Regeneration Growth: 0.65 ⇒ 0.5

Passive - Fury of the Xer'Sai

  • Maximum Healing: 10 (+2-10% (based on level) maximum health) ⇒ 12-20% (based on level) maximum health
  • newFury Generation from Non-Champions: Attacks against minions, plants, and wards restore 50% less Fury.

Q - Queen's Wrath (Unburrowed)

  • newAttack Type: Queen's Wrath now functions as a basic attack instead of a spell, meaning total attack time and time between attacks is based on Rek'Sai's actual attack speed.
  • newBonus Attack Speed: Queen's Wrath now grants 45% bonus attack speed for its 3 attacks. (Note: This results in a similar-feeling attack flow to the old spell-based version.)

Q - Prey Seeker (Burrowed)

  • Cooldown: 12/11.5/11/10.5/10 seconds ⇒ 10 seconds at all ranks
  • Damage: 60/95/130/165/200 (+50% bonus AD) (+70% AP) Physical Damage ⇒ 50/80/110/140/170 (+25% bonus AD) (+70% AP) Magic Damage

W - Burrow

  • Bonus Movement Speed While Burrowed: 5/10/15 (levels 1/6/11) ⇒ 5/10/15/20/25 (based on rank)
  • Vision Radius: 25% ⇒ 35%

W - Unburrow

  • newGrouping is Scary: Unburrow now knocks up all champions for 1 second, not just the primary target.
  • removedRun!: Unburrow no longer slows enemies by 40% for 0.5 seconds post-knockup.
  • Damage: 50/85/120/155/190 (+80% bonus AD) Physical Damage ⇒ 50/75/100/125/150 (+80% AP) Magic Damage

E - Tunnel

  • Cooldown: 26/24/22/20/18 seconds ⇒ 18/17/16/15/14 seconds
  • Tunnel Reuse Cooldown: 10/8/6/4/2 seconds ⇒ 6/5/4/3/2 seconds
  • Manual Cast Dash Speed: 550 + Movement Speed from Boots ⇒ 500 + Total Movement Speed (Note: Now matches right-click dash speed.)
  • removedQoL Adjustment: Removed the 0.05 second hitch when manually casting Tunnel
  • newQoL Adjustment: Rek'Sai begins taking already-placed tunnels roughly 20% faster (Note: Final dash speed unchanged.)

E - Furious Bite

  • Physical Damage: 5/10/15/20/25 (+70% AD) ⇒ 100% of total AD
  • 100 Fury Bonus: 2x Damage as True Damage ⇒ +6-14% (based on rank) of target's maximum health
  • Cooldown: 12 seconds ⇒ 10 seconds
  • newFlashy: E now displays a cosmetic critical strike when fully empowered.

R - Void Rush

  • Physical Damage: 100/250/400 (+175% bonus AD) (+20/25/30% of target's missing health) ⇒ 100/250/400 (+100% bonus AD) (+20/25/30% of target's missing health)


Q champion healing increased. E cooldown decreased. R bonus health increased.

Simply put, Renekton is quite bad in his current state and in desperate need of some help. For starters we'll be increasing his Q healing now that he no longer has the reliable healing that Goredrinker provided him. We're also decreasing his E cooldown at later stages of the game so he can have better target access to squishies. And last but certainly not least, we're increasing the bonus health he gets from his ultimate to give him better survivability in teamfights and for better Sundered healing synergies as that's his most common first item at the moment. Overall, these should help make Renekton feel a bit more like the Butcher of the Sands he's meant to be.

Q - Cull the Meek

  • Champion Healing: 12/18/24/30/36 (+15% bonus AD) ⇒ 12/20/28/36/44 (+17% bonus AD)

E - Slice

  • Cooldown: 16/15/14/13/12 seconds ⇒ 16/14.5/13/11.5/10 seconds

R - Dominus

  • Bonus Health: 250/400/550 ⇒ 300/500/700


Q additional fireball scaling decreased, now stacks if a targeted minion dies while Q is mid-flight. W cooldown adjusted, initial damage decreased, explosion damage increased. R will continue to cast when Smolder dies.

Smolder's W has proven to be a very powerful poking tool during the laning phase. While we're happy that players want to max and poke with it, we want to slightly reduce its power at lower ranks due to the PVP damage it can provide while also ensuring that it never one shots the wave, preventing Smolder from stacking with Q and scaling. We're also taking this opportunity to add in some QoL improvements and bug fixes that will help Smolder live his best dragon fantasy better.

Q - Super Scorcher Breath

  • Fireballs at 125 Stacks: 2 (+1 per 100 Dragon Patience Stacks) ⇒ 1 (+1 per 67 Dragon Patience Stacks)
  • QoL Update: If a minion dies while Smolder's Q is in flight towards it, Smolder will still receive a Dragon Patience stack.

W - Achooo!

  • Cooldown: 13/12.5/12/11.5/11 seconds ⇒ 14/13/12/11/10 seconds
  • Initial Physical Damage: 70/90/110/130/150 (+25% AD) (+35% AP) ⇒ 50/80/110/140/170 (+25% AD) (+20% AP)
  • Explosion Physical Damage: 25/40/55/70/85 (+65% AP) ⇒ 25/40/55/70/85 (+25% bonus AD) (+80% AP)


  • Fiery Fury: Smolder's Mom will no longer stop if Smolder dies. But she will be VERY angry. Shame on you.


Passive movement speed increased. Q heal increased. E bugfix. R cooldown decreased.

Soraka is another champion still struggling to find her place within the new item system. Now that she has space for buffs, we want to give her some that Soraka players will find effective and fun—20% faster bananambulance anyone?

Passive - Salvation

  • Bonus Movement Speed: 70% ⇒ 90%

Q - Starcall

  • Total Heal: 50/65/80/95/110 (+30% AP) ⇒ 60/75/90/105/120 (+30% AP)

E - Equinox

  • Bugfix: E now silences enemies in the area instantly rather than after a variable delay.

R - Wish

  • Cooldown: 160/145/130 seconds ⇒ 150/135/120 seconds


Base armor increased. E damage increased. R cooldown decreased.

With the changes to support itemization, Thresh is falling off faster in the midgame than he was in the previous seasons and we're looking to give him some power in the areas we feel he's most lacking. We'd like for him to be more able to aggressively take trades and use The Box in lane. Also, Flay isn't quite as good as a second max as we'd like, so we're giving it a bit of damage.

Base Stats

  • Base Armor: 28 ⇒ 31

E - Flay

  • Magic Damage: 75/115/155/195/235 (+70% AP) ⇒ 75/120/165/210/255 (+70% AP)

R - The Box

  • Cooldown: 140/120/100 seconds ⇒ 120/100/80 seconds

Twisted Fate

Attack speed growth decreased. W blue card damage decreased. E damage decreased.

Twisted Fate's update from 14.2 has done wonders for revitalizing his player base, having about three times as many players than before the start of the season. However, he's also dealing more damage than before and his opponents have begun to take notice. We don't think he's significantly over the line, but both his AP and AD builds are performing a little stronger than they should so we're stacking his deck a little less.

Base Stats

  • Attack Speed Growth: 3% ⇒ 2.5%

W - Pick A Card

  • Magic Damage: 40/60/80/100/120 (+100% AD) (+115% AP) ⇒ 40/60/80/100/120 (+100% AD) (+100% AP)

E - Stacked Deck

  • Bonus Magic Damage: 65/90/115/140/165 (+75% bonus AD) (+50% AP) ⇒ 65/90/115/140/165 (+75% bonus AD) (+40% AP)


Base AD decreased.

Varus currently has two viable builds: Lethality and on-hit. But despite being relatively balanced for the vast majority of players, he's dominating Pro play drafts. In order to address this, we're toning down a Pro-specific strength that will impact his early laning phase.

Base Stats

  • Base Attack Damage: 62 ⇒ 60


Q bonus movement speed increased. E cooldown decreased. R turret disable duration decreased, cooldown decreased, crowd control resistances during leap adjusted.

Volibear is struggling and we'll be helping him out. We think that his R is a supremely cool moment for Volibear players, but the ability to disable turrets can remove his opponents' access to counterplay. In order to give Voli players more agency and more frequent access to his ultimate, we're trading some of his turret disabling power and CC immunity for a cooldown decrease. We're also including a Q movement speed buff so he can reach his targets more consistently, and a slight E cooldown buff for the magic wizard bears out there.

Q - Thundering Smash

  • Bonus Movement Speed: 8/12/16/20/24% ⇒ 12/16/20/24/28% (Note: this bonus is still doubled when moving towards an enemy champion.)

E - Sky Splitter

  • Cooldown: 13 seconds ⇒ 12 seconds

R - Stormbringer

  • Turret Disable Duration: 3/4/5 seconds ⇒ 2/3/4 seconds
  • Cooldown: 160/140/120 seconds ⇒ 130/115/100 seconds
  • Crowd Control Resistances during Leap: Crowd Control Immune ⇒ Unstoppable


Passive plant damage decreased, bonus damage to non-epic monsters increased.

Zyra is currently overperforming as a support, but at the same time, as a plant champion, we want her to feel at home in the jungle. Just like Ivern and Maokai and Lillia. These buffs should help her find her roots in the jungle without giving her too much early power to take into the bot lane.

Passive - Garden of Thorns

  • Plant Magic Damage: 20-88 (based on level) (+18% AP) ⇒ 16-84 (based on level) (+18% AP)
  • Bonus Damage to Non-Epic Monsters: 40-100 (based on level) ⇒ 60-100 (based on level)



Black Cleaver is currently a bit underwhelming compared to other fighter itemization options in the game. And while we don't think it needs to be the default fighter item (League of Cleavers anyone?), we want to make sure it still feels worth picking up for the champions that appreciate it. To that end, we're giving Black Cleaver quite a few minor buffs that should make the item feel better for its users.
  • Item Recipe: Phage + Kindlegem + Long Sword + 750 gold ⇒ Phage + Caulfield's Warhammer + Ruby Crystal + 400 gold
  • Carve Armor Reduction per Stack: 4% ⇒ 5%
  • Maximum Carve Stacks: 6 ⇒ 5
  • Maximum Armor Reduction: 24% ⇒ 25%
  • Fervor Bonus Movement Speed: 20 (melee) / 10 (ranged) ⇒ 20 for all champions
  • Fervor Proc Conditions: On dealing Physical Damage that bypasses shields/invulnerability ⇒ All physical damage, even if mitigated.


Hullbreaker currently has an extremely strong interaction with Urgot that makes him deal full damage with it through his W, Purge. We're changing Hullbreaker under the hood to interact properly with Urgot's on-hit damage reduction.
  • newAttack Adjustment: Hullbreaker is now an on-hit item instead of an on-attack item.


While all of the other Tiamat items have managed to find their respective niches within the item system, Ravenous Hydra in comparison is less powerful and less exciting in its current state. Our goal is for Ravenous to stand shoulder to shoulder with its counterparts, so in this patch we'll be leaning into its niche as the premier caster healing item, but in a way that doesn't have the same inherent problems that Goredrinker did.
  • newRavenous Crescent Lifesteal: Ravenous Hydra now applies Lifesteal to its Ravenous Crescent active at 150% effectiveness


Though we think Stridebreaker is appropriately powerful in its current state, it has a few bugs and pain points that keep it from feeling as good as it could. Though we may need to nerf Stridebreaker in the future, we don't want to let that get in the way of cleaning up some functionality so it can feel better today.
  • Bugfix: Passive movement speed is applied as soon as you deal damage instead of after a short delay and now functions even if the damage is shielded.
  • Bugfix: Active movement speed now properly decays over the full duration of 3 seconds instead of decaying to 0 over 1.75 seconds.
  • Bugfix: Active movement speed now displays a buff icon for its duration.


Terminus has cultivated a group of core users by being a source of percent penetration and durability for on-hit champions. While that's great, it's been pretty unsatisfying, and in some cases unapproachable, due to how long the item takes to stack up. In this patch, we're quickening its stack rate so that champions can use it at full power for more time in fights.
  • Item Recipe: Recurve Bow + B.F. Sword + Dagger + 700 gold ⇒ Recurve Bow + B.F. Sword + Recurve Bow + 300 gold
  • Juxtaposition Stack Cap: 5 each (10 total) ⇒ 3 each (6 total)
  • Bonus Armor and MR per Stack: 3/4/5 (levels 1/11/14) ⇒ 6/7/8 (levels 1/11/14)
  • Maximum Bonus Armor and MR: 15/20/25 (based on level) ⇒ 18/21/24 (based on level)
  • Percent Armor and MR Penetration per Stack: 6% ⇒ 10%
  • Maximum Percent Armor and MR Penetration: 30% (unchanged)

Support Items

Supports got a lot more powerful in 14.1, largely due to gaining much more gold income and having overall stronger Sightstone items. Now that they're gaining a more or less complete item early on, we'd like to shift around their power curves to make them closer to other champions' power levels at various points in time.

Because their first legendary comes online at a similar time to their finished support item and other champions' first items, there's too much of an early power spike. Conversely, since they're permanently down an item slot in the late game, we'd like if they felt stronger than they currently do on completed builds. Thus, we're shifting some of these items toward a more scaling profile to keep up with the game as it goes late without being as strong initially.

We're also doing some clean up on the timing of when stacks come online. You'll now begin getting stacks sooner in the game with the second stack showing up about ten seconds into the second minion wave. This should still give players plenty of room to fight over wave control without executes winning the push by default. We're also specifically target nerfing the ability to start with a Doran's item only to receive all three stacks when purchasing the item later in the game, as it made many supports overly powerful in the early laning phase.


  • Quest Charge Cooldown: 18 seconds ⇒ 20 seconds
  • First Quest Charge Generated: 2:08 ⇒ 1:50 in-game time
  • removedBuy Now!: World Atlas will no longer provide bonus stacks if purchased later in the game.


  • Quest Charge Cooldown: 18 seconds ⇒ 20 seconds


  • Health: 100 ⇒ 200
  • Health and Mana Regeneration: 50% ⇒ 75%


  • Ranged Damage Amplification: 6% ⇒ 5%


  • Going Sledding Heal: 120 health ⇒ 7% of user's maximum health
  • Going Sledding Movement Speed: +90 flat move speed, decaying over 4 seconds ⇒ 30% bonus move speed, decaying over 3 seconds


  • Void Explosion Cooldown: 9-6 (based on level) ⇒ 8/7/6 (levels 1/11/16)
  • Void Explosion Damage: 50 (+15% AP) (+3% of target's maximum health) ⇒ 20 (+20% AP) (+4% of target's maximum health)

Lost Chapter Items

Despite lowering gold costs of Lost Chapter items in patch 14.3, most mages are still performing a little worse on their first item power spike than we'd like them to. With this in mind, we're taking the changes last patch a bit further by giving a bit of extra Ability Haste to these items so mana mages can do their magic spell thing a bit more often.


  • Ability Haste: 20 ⇒ 25


  • Ability Haste: 20 ⇒ 25


  • Ability Haste: 20 ⇒ 25



In this patch we'll be bringing down the power of Lethal Tempo for its melee users due to it dominating early game fights. We'll be giving the Rune some compensation buffs that will help its late game, but our goal is to reduce how reliable certain champions are with it in their early laning. With that in mind, we're going to monitor how these changes affect users and make adjustments where needed in the future.
  • Melee Attack Speed per Stack: 9-13.5% (based on level) ⇒ 5-16% (based on level)
We're also updating some in-game rune trackers to showcase more relevant information


  • Damage Done ⇒ Total Max Health gained


  • Progress to Next Stack ⇒ Attack Speed gained


  • Total Shield Created ⇒ Damage Blocked

Fountain Regeneration

In this patch, we'll be increasing fountain healing with the goal of slightly reducing how much time players need to spend in base at the early stages of the game. We think that the time players spend finding a safe spot to recall, recalling, waiting in the fountain to heal, and walking back to lane do a good job of creating opportunity costs for recalls. But there's a bit of room to speed this up to help pacing feel more consistent.
  • Health Regeneration per 0.25 seconds: 2.1% of maximum health ⇒ 2.6% of maximum health

Tether Ability Changes

Have you ever had a moment where a LeBlanc E or Morgana ultimate tether was attached to you, but you saved your flash to get out of range at the last second only to get stunned anyway? This type of situation occurred with tethers due to the use of server frame checking which resulted in server ticks where the tether range was exceeded but did not break. In this patch, we're updating tethers to use area checking, which means that they should now break instantly, making these abilities more responsive and consistent when you're playing against them. While this may result in a small power loss for these champions, we'll be keeping an eye on them to see if any compensation buffs are necessary in future patches.
  • Aatrox W (Note: Fixed a bug where the tether pull could sometimes ignore the tether range check in the last 0.25 seconds.)
  • Fiddlesticks W (Note: Tether break range (not cast range) increased from 700 to 725 units.)
  • Illaoi E
  • Karma W and R+W
  • Kled Q (Note: This ability cannot use area checking due to its changing tether range, however it now checks the range 20x per second instead of 4x per second.)
  • LeBlanc E and R+E (Note: There is a 0.25 second grace period on hitting LeBlanc E + RE before the tether will break visually. This is intended so that the players can see that the tether hit a target, but it does mean that for 0.25s the tether will be attached and out of range.)
  • Nocturne E
  • Morgana R
  • Renata Glasc Q
  • Zac Q (Note: Tether check changed from center check to edge check, tether range decreased from 1000 to 900.)

Red Side Camera Adjustments

The red team offset camera option has been adjusted to show more vision on the bottom of the screen compared to Live. This is intended to increase visibility for those who use this option as the UI should now take up less of the space you'd normally be clicking on. The left is before while the right image is after.

ARAM Balance Changes

In this batch of changes, we're looking to reduce the power of some of the most powerful champions in Howling Abyss (your day of reckoning has come Illaoi) while helping out mages that were negatively affected by the item balance changes in the last patch. Overall, we believe item balance on ARAM is in a relatively good place. We have a few on our radar that are strong like Sundered Sky (whose strongest users are seeing nerfs this patch), but no outliers that are overpowered compared to the performance of other items on their best champions. That said, we'll take another look at those items if these nerfs don't pan out as intended.

And last but not least, we have some bugfixes to Malignance and Ornn item upgrades that were causing them to deal incorrect amounts of damage.


  • Annie: Shielding Done: 80% ⇒ 90%
  • Lissandra: Damage Dealt: 90% ⇒ 95%
  • Naafiri: Damage Taken: 105% ⇒ 100%
  • Syndra: Ability Haste: 0 ⇒ 15
  • Xerath: Damage Dealt: 90% ⇒ 93%


  • Aatrox: Tenacity: 120% ⇒ 100%
  • Briar: Healing Done: 130% ⇒ 115%; Damage Taken: 95% ⇒ 100%
  • Gragas: Damage Dealt: 105% ⇒ 100%
  • Illaoi: Damage Taken: 105% ⇒ 110%; Healing Done: 100% ⇒ 90%
  • Rek'Sai: Healing Done: 120% ⇒ 100%; Tenacity: 120% ⇒ 100%
  • Sivir: Damage Taken: 105% ⇒ 108%; Damage Dealt: 92% ⇒ 90%
  • Xin Zhao: Damage Dealt: 100% ⇒ 95%
  • Hubris Bonus AD: 15 (+2 per statue rank) ⇒ 10 (+1 per statue rank) (Note: This change went live in patch 14.3 but was mistakenly not documented in the patch notes.)


  • Malignance: Fixed a bug that caused the 14.3 changes to the item to not take effect. It should now correctly deal 40 (+2.8% AP) damage.
  • Ornn Items: Fixed a bug that caused the Ornn items Enmity of the Masses, Ataraxis, and Heavensfall to deal damage based on their Summoner's Rift values and not the adjusted ARAM values.

Ranked LP Gains

The changes that gave players below Emerald +/- 28 LP per win/loss have resulted in promotions and demotions being too streaky, resulting in an increased frequency of players losing more LP than they gain. With patch 14.4, we'll be reverting back to +/-25 LP per win/loss to make climbing a bit more consistent and reduce instances of players getting into negative LP states.


  • Quickplay Loadout Swap Slots Functionality: One button press now completely swaps all settings between the two slots, which should help reduce the number of steps it takes to swap your primary and secondary settings.
  • Quickplay Priority Roles and Position Selector UI: We made some visual improvements to reduce confusion when interacting with the role selections UI. The improved visual clarity for Priority Roles has also been applied to other Summoner's Rift queues that use pre-game role selection.
  • Quickplay Error Messaging: The notification for invalid champion selection has been improved with detailed requirements as to what is causing the error.

Upcoming Skins & Chromas

While you'll be seeing previous years' Porcelain skin chromas and icons come back this patch, we unfortunately ran into some small issues affecting the newest batch (Porcelain Aurelion Sol, Darius, Graves, Morgana, Miss Fortune, and Irelia). The new chromas will still be available in the store for RP purchase in 14.4, but the new chromas within the event shop will not appear until patch 14.5. We appreciate your patience as we work to get these chromas to you!

The following chromas will be released this patch:

Patch 14.3 Notes

What better way to ring in Lunar Revel than with a new patch—welcome to 14.3!

In this week’s patch, we’re continuing to make follow-up adjustments for champions and items that were affected by the itemization overhaul. This includes things like lowering overall burst in the game by reducing the amount of proc damage from items, giving some AP carries like Ziggs and Nidalee more durability to compensate them for changes to their core items, and adjusting champions that have found a bit too much success with the new item system (hello Rengar and Karma).

In other news, we also have our Heavenscale skinline coming out this patch, the return of URF, an update on the Vanguard rollout, and a reminder about Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 deprecation, so make sure to check out all the sections down below!

Patch Highlights

Heavenscale Lee Sin, Divine Heavenscale Lee Sin, Heavenscale Master Yi, Heavenscale Janna, Heavenscale Ezreal, Heavenscale Kai'Sa, Heavenscale Diana, and Prestige Heavenscale Ezreal will be available February 7, 2024 at 20:00 UTC.

The Ultra Rapid Fire (more commonly known as U.R.F.) game mode will be making a return on patch 14.3! U.R.F. will go live on February 7, 2024 at 17:00 UTC for EUW, EUN, RU, and TR and 20:00 UTC for all other Riot regions.


It was previously communicated in the 14.2 notes that we will be introducing Vanguard, Riot’s proprietary anti-cheat software that will be required for all League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics games. However, this change has been rescheduled due to some critical bugs with the client pop up we planned to have in 14.2 which caused us to delay one patch cycle. So starting in patch 14.3, we will run a diagnostics check to see if your computer is ready for this update. If not, please review our troubleshooting guide or reach out to Player Support. This change also means that we are pushing back Vanguard’s launch from 14.4 to 14.5 to still give players plenty of time to get ready for this change by installing Vanguard.

If you originally failed the check, it will re-run at a later point or you can manually re-run it by clicking on the settings icon on the top right and “Check for Compatibility” under General > Vanguard System Check.

This will not mean that Vanguard is active or being used for League yet, this is just to give players ample heads up and opportunity to be ready before it’s a requirement. For more information please check out our support article on Vanguard.

Windows Min Spec Update

Beginning Wednesday February 21st (patch 14.4), we are updating our minimum system requirements and will no longer be supporting Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 for all League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics games. To maintain the stability and performance of our games, we sometimes need to deprecate support for legacy Operating Systems that aren’t widely used by our players. If you’re still playing on these versions of Windows, please consider updating to continue playing. Please see our min spec support page for more details.


Aurelion Sol

Q mana cost decreased, Stardust stacks per champion burst increased. W mana cost decreased, cooldown decreased, bonus damage during Q increased. E Stardust stack generation decreased. Recommended skill order adjusted from QEW to QWE.

Aurelion Sol's itemization is less than stellar now that Liandry's no longer provides him with mana alongside the removal of Crown of the Shattered Queen. On top of his high mana costs, Aurelion Sol has largely been opting for passive and reactive playstyles rather than proactive ones. We believe that a world where the majority of his stacks are coming from proactive player combat and trading instead of stalling and passive farming is both more fun for Aurelion Sol and healthier for the game as a whole, because he has to take risks to scale. So we are adjusting his mana costs to allow him to be more proactive in lane and going forward will balance him around his more Q+W-driven stacking gameplay.

Q - Breath of Light

  • Mana Cost per Second: 45/50/55/60/65 ⇒ 30/35/40/45/50
  • Stardust Stacks per Champion Burst : 1 ⇒ 3

W - Astral Flight

  • Mana Cost: 80/85/90/95/100 ⇒ 50/55/60/65/70
  • Cooldown: 22/20.5/19/17.5/16 seconds ⇒ 15/14/13/12/11 seconds
  • Q - Breath of Light Bonus Damage: 14/15.5/17/18.5/20% ⇒ 18/20/22/24/26%

E - Singularity

  • Stardust Stacks per Champion Takedown: 5 ⇒ 2
  • Stardust Stacks per Epic Monster Takedown: 5 ⇒ 2
  • Stardust Stacks per Cannon Minion Takedown: 3 ⇒ 2
  • Stardust Stacks per Large Monster Takedown: 3 ⇒ 2


Base health regeneration decreased.

Now that Azir’s soldiers apply on-hit effects, he has fully moved over to Fleet Footwork as his main rune of choice. Now, thanks to his newfound sustain, he’s become nearly impossible to push out of lane. As a result, we’re taking a crack at his overall durability, particularly his early health regeneration which is currently too high thanks to Fleet.

Base Stats

  • Base Health Regeneration: 7 ⇒ 5


Passive damage to monsters decreased, bugfix to passive. Q damage decreased.

Brand is currently quite strong thanks to a combination of three things: his overly quick jungle clear speed, his natural synergies with Liandry’s, and champions having more health. This patch brings his passive damage in line with where we’d like it to be thanks to a bugfix, but he still needs more power taken out, so we’re nerfing his jungle clear and some early base damage.

Passive - Blaze

  • Damage to Monsters Modifier: 220% ⇒ 200%
  • Bugfix: Blaze no longer deals more than 2% maximum health damage over a single application.

Q - Sear

  • Damage: 80/110/140/170/200 (+65% AP) ⇒ 70/100/130/160/190 (+65% AP)


Package duration decreased. W cooldown decreased, mana cost decreased, damage increased. Malignance no longer counts towards Eclipse’s passive.

Corki is getting a meaningful nerf this patch, with his core item interaction of Eclipse and Malignance being bugfixed. That said, we're happy that players have found an interesting build that utilizes all of Corki's odd item scaling. Instead of returning to AP Corki as a scaling, low-interaction poke champion, we'd like if those AP purchases asked him to play more aggressively and risk the occasional aggressive Valkyrie cast. Emphasis on occasional.

Passive - Special Delivery

  • Package Duration: 60 seconds ⇒ 45 seconds

W - Valkyrie

  • Cooldown: 20/19/18/17/16 seconds ⇒ 20/18/16/14/12 seconds
  • Mana Cost: 100 ⇒ 80
  • Damage per Second: 60/90/120/150/180 (+40% AP) ⇒ 60/90/120/150/180 (+60% AP)

R - Missile Barrage

  • removedItem Interaction Adjustment: Malignance will no longer count toward Eclipse’s passive.


Q damage decreased. R damage decreased.

In 14.2 we overshot on the buffs to Ezreal, however in this patch we’re buffing quite a few of his core items meaning we need to walk back some of the power he just got. Overall, these changes paired with the item buffs should still be a net buff compared to his power level in 14.1.

Q - Mystic Shot

  • Damage: 20/45/70/95/120 (+135% AD) (+15% AP) ⇒ 20/45/70/95/120 (+130% AD) (+15% AP)

R - Trueshot Barrage

  • Damage: 350/525/700 (+120% bonus AD) (+90% AP) ⇒ 325/500/675 (+100% bonus AD) (+90% AP)


Passive tentacle range increased, damage decreased.

The map changes introduced in 14.1 resulted in a drop in power for Illaoi, mainly due to her tentacles being designed around the old terrain spacing. In this patch, we’re looking to make her tentacles more reliable on the new Rift. However, that reliability means more overall damage, hence the tentacle damage reduction. Overall, the two changes should be roughly neutral but feel far better for the Kraken Priestess.

Passive - Prophet of the Elder God

  • Tentacle Range: 800 ⇒ 925
  • Tentacle Damage: 10-180 (based on level) (+120% AD) (+40% AP) ⇒ 9-162 (based on level) (+115% AD) (+40% AP)


R+Q Soulflare damage decreased.

Karma’s currently a bit too good as a triple flex option, with the ability to succeed in top, mid, and support. With her newfound power from Malignance, her ultimate is now on too short of a cooldown for the damage it provides, so we’ll be taking her R+Q explosion damage down a notch.

R - Mantra

  • Soulflare Damage: 35/140/245/350 (+70% AP) ⇒ 40/130/220/310 (+50% AP)


Passive damage decreased. Q damage decreased.

Lillia’s preferred items became much nicer in the seasonal update, allowing her access to health on every slot and strong omnivamp that works well with her kit. We like that Lillia is generally tankier than before as it helps her stand out from other AP users, so we’ll be reducing her inevitable late-game damage while leaving her durability intact.

Passive - Dream-Laden Bough

  • Maximum Health Damage: 5% (+1.5% AP) ⇒ 5% (+1.25% AP)

Q - Blooming Blows

  • Damage: 70/90/110/130/150 (+90% AP) ⇒ 70/90/110/130/150 (+70% AP)


Base mana regeneration decreased. Passive heal decreased. Q cooldown decreased, mana cost decreased. E mana cost decreased, cooldown adjusted. R cooldown increased.

Maokai Support finally has the freedom to rush movement speed tank items without facing off against other champions' mythics. He is extremely happy about this fact. So happy in fact that he’s the strongest-performing support in the game. We’d like to rein in his support power level while still retaining his ability to perform well in top and jungle. In order to do this, we’ll be lessening his affinity to the support item (which grants percent mana regeneration), lowering his access to early saplings, raising his reliance on gold, and giving him the ability to repeatedly press Q more freely, which is more important to his top lane and jungle gameplay.

Base Stats

  • Base Mana Regeneration: 7.2 ⇒ 6

Passive - Sap Magic

  • Maximum Health Heal: 4-34 (based on level) (+4%-12% (based on level) ⇒ 4-12.8% (based on level)

Q - Bramble Smash

  • Cooldown: 8/7.25/6.5/5.75/5 ⇒ 7/6.5/6/5.5/5 seconds
  • Mana Cost: 60 ⇒ 40

E - Sapling Toss

  • Cooldown: 14 ⇒ 16/15/14/13/12 seconds
  • Mana Cost: 45/55/65/75/85 ⇒ 60/65/70/75/80

R - Nature’s Grasp

  • Cooldown: 120/110/100 ⇒ 130/110/90 seconds


Magic resistance growth increased. E heal increased, bonus attack speed increased.

Nidalee lost some power with the new season, so we’re here to help! Her damage is currently high, but she’s lacking in durability as she used to gain health from both of her first two items whereas she now gains none. In this patch we’re looking to increase her E heal since it has the room to be more powerful, and her E attack speed to help her clear. These changes are also intended to buff her supportive outputs to give her more options later in the game when she begins to fall off. We’re also including an MR growth buff to bring Nidalee more in line with similar AP characters who go into melee range such as Lillia or Rumble since this stat is quite important for them, especially in teamfights.

Base Stats

  • Magic Resistance Growth: 1.3 ⇒ 1.45

E - Primal Surge

  • Minimum Heal: 35/50/65/80/95 (+27.5% AP) ⇒ 50/75/100/125/150 (+35% AP) (Note: maximum heal is still double the minimum)
  • Bonus Attack Speed: 20/30/40/50/60% ⇒ 30/40/50/60/70%


Base armor increased. Q damage increased, mana cost decreased. E bonus movement speed increased. E damage decreased.

Pyke was struggling to stay above water in 14.1, but the 14.2 rune changes further impacted him to the point that he needs a lifeline.. In this patch we’ll be giving him a little early durability and some buffs to the abilities that let Pyke players do what they want to do most: kill people and go fast.

Base Stats

  • Base Armor: 45 ⇒ 47

Q - Bone Skewer

  • Damage: 100/150/200/250/300 (+60% bonus AD) ⇒ 100/150/200/250/300 (+75% bonus AD)/
  • Mana Cost: 74/78/82/86/90 ⇒ 70/75/80/85/90

W - Ghostwater Dive

  • Bonus Movement Speed: 40% (+1.5% per 1 Lethality) ⇒ 45% (+2% per 1 Lethality)

E - Phantom Undertow

  • Damage: 105/145/185/225/265 (+100% bonus AD) ⇒ 100/150/200/250/300 (+100% bonus AD)


Base health decreased. Q bonus damage decreased.

Rengar’s damage is too high when snowballing, so he’s been happier than a kitten in a store full of catnip. Except in this situation the kitten is Rengar and the catnip is some of the new lethality items. Having found synergies with items like Hubris, Profane Hydra, and Opportunity that help Rengar’s damage scale well, he finds himself needing less power in his base kit. We also have a base health nerf which should help address his power in the top lane.

Base Stats

  • Base Health: 620 ⇒ 590

Q - Savagery

  • Bonus Damage: 30/60/90/120/150 (+0/5/10/15/20% AD) ⇒ 30/60/90/120/150 (+0/3.75/7.5/11.25/15% AD)
  • Empowered Bonus Damage: 30-235 (based on level) (+40% AD) ⇒ 30-235 (based on level) (+30% AD)


Mana regeneration growth decreased. W mana cost decreased, bonus damage to monsters increased, no longer one-shot by Grubs. E mana cost increased. R QoL changes.

Shaco’s striking fear into the hearts of bot laners everywhere, but, for better or worse, we think that everyone on the map should be equally terrified, so we’re making some adjustments to reduce his support power while helping his jungle power. The Jack in the Box buffs should help him clear the jungle faster and healthier, especially for AP builds which are struggling more, while the mana nerfs should specifically bring down his ability to poke enemies down in lane quite so much while also allowing jungle Shaco to forgo mana items entirely.

Base Stats

  • Mana Regeneration Growth: 0.45 ⇒ 0.35

W - Jack In The Box

  • Mana Cost: 70 at all ranks ⇒ 70/65/60/55/50
  • Bonus Damage to Monsters: 10/20/30/40/50 ⇒ 20/35/50/65/80
  • Grub Proof: Shaco’s Jack in the Boxes are no longer one-shot by Grubs.

E - Two-Shiv Poison

  • Mana Cost: 65 ⇒ 75

R - Hallucinate

  • POOF: Shaco’s clone now creates an orange poof when it snaps back to Shaco or teleports for any reason.
  • Clone Clock: Shaco’s clone duration is now displayed on the HUD.
  • Bugfix: Shaco’s clone no longer loses its auto attack target when casting spells.


Q empowered attack damage increased, bonus attack speed increased. W bonus movement speed increased.

We removed Night Harvester from the game, but AP Shyvana was here before that, and she’ll be here long after thanks to her dedicated player base. Since her AP build is something we know players enjoy, we want to make sure it remains viable.

Q - Twin Bite

  • Empowered Attack Bonus Damage: 100% AD (+35% AP) ⇒ 100% AD (+50% AP)
  • Bonus Attack Speed: 40/45/50/55/60% ⇒ 50/55/60/65/70%

W - Burnout

  • Bonus Movement Speed: 30/35/40/45/50% (+0.08% AP) ⇒ 30/35/40/45/50% (+0.12% AP)


Q damage increased. E cooldown decreased.

With the loss of access to Ability Haste across the board, Taliyah hasn’t been able to get stable footing in the new season. While we’re addressing the Haste issue with a cooldown reduction to her E, we also want to make her a bit more relevant in the early game, both as a mid laner and jungler, so we’ll be giving her Q some more power which is generally always nice for her to have.

Q - Threaded Volley

  • Damage: 50/70/90/110/130 (+50% AP) ⇒ 60/78/96/114/132 (+50% AP)

E - Unraveled Earth

  • Cooldown: 16/15.5/15/14.5/14 seconds ⇒ 14 seconds at all ranks


Q QoL change.

Q - Blinding Dart

  • QoL Adjustment: Teemo Q blind should now immediately apply to targets hit by the Q, preventing Teemo from taking damage from an auto attack after the blind has been applied. Blind duration should now also be consistent with the debuff duration above the target’s health bar.


Base health decreased. Q damage decreased.

Trundle’s been doing quite well since the buffs he got back in 13.23. We think that the mid-game power spike and enhanced synergies with Trinity Force that came with this buff are beneficial for him to keep, so instead we’ll be reducing his early game power by dropping his base health and flat damage from his Q.

Base Stats

  • Base Health: 686 ⇒ 650

Q - Chomp

  • Bonus Attack Damage: 20/40/60/80/100 (+15/25/35/45/55% AD) ⇒ 10/30/50/70/90 (+15/25/35/45/55% AD)


E QoL change.

E - Contaminate

  • QoL Adjustment: If Twitch uses his E at the same time his poison expires on an enemy, they will now take damage based on the number of stacks they had when the poison expired. This should result in the E cast being just slightly more forgiving.


Q bonus range increased. E cooldown decreased.

Wukong is in a weak spot at the moment, especially in the top lane, so we’re here to put a bit more pep in his step. To give him more space to play with, we’ll be increasing his early Q bonus range so that he can better trade with his opponents. We’re also including a buff to its bonus AD ratio because the armor shred Q gave lost value with the armor shard being removed last patch. Finally, we’re decreasing his E cooldown, as he’s very reliant on this spell and his build lost access to Ability Haste with the new item system.

Q - Crushing Blow

  • Bonus Range: 75/100/125/150/175 ⇒ 135/145/155/165/175
  • Bonus Physical Damage: 20/45/70/95/120 (+45% bonus AD) ⇒ 20/45/70/95/120 (+55% bonus AD)

E - Nimbus Strike

  • Cooldown: 10/9.5/9/8.5/8 seconds ⇒ 10/9.25/8.5/7.75/7 seconds


Passive summon leash range decreased, summons now gain bonus movement speed when returning to Yorick. Q heal adjusted, mana cost decreased. E cast time decreased. R bonus damage when attacking Maiden’s target adjusted.

With a bunch of new items to play with we thought that now would be a good time to revitalize Yorick’s classic bruiser builds which should ultimately give him more durability to act as a front liner for his team. While we were at it, we also wanted to take the opportunity to smooth out his playing experience with minor adjustments to his summons.

Passive - Shepherd of Souls

  • Summon Leash Range: 2000 ⇒ 1600
  • newReturn Speed: Yorick’s summons now gain bonus movement speed when returning to Yorick. This movement speed bonus is based on the distance between Yorick and the summon.

Q - Last Rites

  • Heal: 10-68 (based on level), doubled when below 50% health ⇒ 10-68 (based on level) (+4/5/6/7/8% missing health), halved vs non-champions
  • Mana Cost: 25 ⇒ 20

E - Mourning Mist

  • Cast Time: 0.33 ⇒ 0.25 seconds

R - Eulogy of the Isles

  • Bonus Damage when Attacking Maiden’s Target: 3/6/9% maximum health (capped at 100/200/300 vs monsters), 2 second cooldown ⇒ 2/2.5/3% maximum health (capped at 100 vs monsters), no cooldown


Base AD increased. R cooldown decreased. Recommended items updated.

Zeri was shocked by the item system overhaul as players are now opting to build Experimental Hexplate on her for access to the ultimate Ability Haste. Since she could use the help at all skill levels, we’ll be giving her some generic buffs to her base AD and ultimate cooldown which should be appreciable for all players, but also help Zeri get away from depending on Hexplate. We also updated her recommended items which we expect to improve her overall power levels as well.

Base Stats

  • Base AD: 53 ⇒ 56

R - Lightning Crash

  • Cooldown: 100/85/70 ⇒ 80/75/70


Base armor increased, armor growth increased. W cooldown decreased.

Ziggs lost quite a bit of durability this season, mainly due to the fact that two of his core items, Seraph’s and Shadowflame, lost 200 health each. While we won’t be giving him all that health back directly, we are giving him some more durability from his natural armor sources in addition to W cooldown reduction which is a more skill expressive way of keeping Ziggs safe.

Base Stats

  • Base Armor: 18 ⇒ 21
  • Armor Growth: 4.5 ⇒ 4.7

W - Satchel Charge

  • Cooldown: 24/21/18/15/12 ⇒ 20/18/16/14/12 seconds


Base mana regeneration decreased, growth increased. Q mana cost decreased. W seed charge on minion/monster takedown increased.

Zyra Support doesn’t need much mana due to how much regeneration she gets from her support item, so when Liandry’s Torment lost Ability Haste (which doesn’t affect her passive) and mana (which she doesn’t need as a support), she was more than happy to simply get more damage and health in return. Mid Zyra, on the other hand, liked both of those things. This patch, we’d like to close the gap on Support versus Mid and Jungle power levels. We’re happy with her primarily being a support, but we’d like to let Zyra enthusiasts feel viable in more than just one role. By shifting her mana pool around to promote casting more Qs and partially making up for the lost Ability Haste as a laner, she should be able to use her primary spells more often and keep up with other mid laners.

Base Stats

  • Base Mana Regeneration: 13 ⇒ 7
  • Mana Regeneration Growth: 0.4 ⇒ 0.8

Q - Deadly Spines

  • Mana Cost: 70 ⇒ 55

W - Rampart Growth

  • Seed Charge Progression on Minion/Monster Takedown: 20% ⇒ 35%


Essence Reaver

With the new item system, Lethality became a much better stat for bot laners in particular. Combined with the overall game pacing differences compared to season 13, on-hit and crit marksmen have been left a bit weaker than they were before. These changes aim to bring up the power level of crit and on-hit users systemically so that they no longer feel as though Lethality is their only viable itemization option
  • Attack Damage: 55 ⇒ 60

Guinsoo’s Rageblade

Like the Essence Reaver and The Collector changes this patch, this change is intended to increase the power levels of on-hit and crit marksmen as a preferable alternative to Lethality builds.
  • Item Recipe: Amplifying Tome + Hearthbound Axe + Long Sword + 1050 gold ⇒ Amplifying Tome + Recurve Bow + Pickaxe + 1025 gold
  • Attack Damage: 30 ⇒ 35
  • Ability Power: 30 ⇒ 35


We have a bugfix to Hullbreaker this patch which should restore a key part of the item's power that was previously missing.
  • Big Bugfix: Fixed a bug that caused the Hullbreaker buff to minions to unintentionally fall off when an allied champion is nearby.

Kaenic Rookern

Kaenic Rookern has become the premier magic resistance item, overshadowing other options like Spirit Visage and Force of Nature. Intended to be a generic source of magic resistance, this item does need to be somewhat powerful, but we need to take it down just a notch.
  • Magic Shield Strength: 20% of maximum health ⇒ 18% of maximum health
  • Shield Refresh Cooldown: 12 seconds without taking damage ⇒ 15 seconds without taking damage

Rod of Ages

With many AP champions moving onto bursty items such as Stormsurge and Shadowflame, we want to ensure that more durable options are still effective and just as appealing. There should be a slew of non-assassin AP champs willing to buy stats other than raw burst and so we want to make sure those options are enticing.
  • Health: 350 ⇒ 400
  • Mana: 300 ⇒ 400


Stridebreaker has struggled to be a viable option since its de-mythicing in 14.1. And while we’ve buffed it a few times, the item is becoming dangerously close to being a pure stat stick, but we’d like for this item’s unique benefits to be a meaningful part of its strengths. With that in mind, we’re adding Tiamat to its build path and re-adding the damage on its active. That said, we’re concerned over how much burst is available in the item system at the moment, so we’re using that same Tiamat in order to make it unique against items like Ravenous and Titanic Hydra to prevent stacking. Stridebreaker stands alone as the only Tiamat item with crowd control and baseline attack speed on it, and we believe it’ll find a few users who really appreciate the item’s unique strengths.
  • Total Cost: 3000 gold ⇒ 3300 gold
  • Item Recipe: Phage + Pickaxe + Dagger + 725 gold ⇒ Tiamat + Phage + Dagger + 600 gold
  • Health: 400 ⇒ 450
  • Attack Damage: 55 ⇒ 50
  • newPassive - Cleave: Basic attacks deal 40% AD (melee) / 20% AD (ranged) physical damage to enemies near the primary target.
  • newActive - Breaking Shockwave: Now deals 80% AD physical damage on cast. (Note: Slow and bonus movement speed values are unchanged.)
  • Active Cooldown: 20 seconds ⇒ 15 seconds

Dreamshatter (Ornn Upgrade)

  • Attack Damage: 70 ⇒ 60
  • Health: 475 ⇒ 600
  • Ability Haste: 25 ⇒ 0 (Note: this is a bugfix.)

The Collector

Like the Guinsoo’s Rageblade and Essence Reaver changes this patch, this change is intended to increase the power levels of on-hit and crit marksmen as a preferable alternative to Lethality builds.
  • Attack Damage: 60 ⇒ 55

Youmuu’s Ghostblade

With more ranged champions opting to pick up Lethality in the new season, we need to dial back the amount of power they’re getting from these items. Ranged champions are using the movement speed this item is offering to keep up heavy teamfight uptime while also increasing their survivability which is a bit too much to offer on a single item for a class where movement speed is so valuable.
  • Out of Combat Bonus Movement Speed: 40 ⇒ 40 (melee) / 20 (ranged)
  • Active Bonus Movement Speed: 20% ⇒ 20% (melee) / 15% (ranged)

AP Item and Proc Damage Changes

In this patch, one of our goals is to lower the amount of damage coming from item effects across the board, especially late game, as a way of lowering overall burst in the game. We’d like to preserve overall item power as they appear to be in a good spot, so we’ll be buffing some of these items as compensation for nerfing their actives. In general, we believe champions should be bursty when their kits support it, not because their items are doing the heavy lifting for them (one of the core issues we had with Mythics) so these changes should help move the item system in that direction. One last note is that many of these items will still need to scale softly in order to keep up with enemy champions' innate Magic Resist growth, which is why we maintained the scaling ratios instead of removing them entirely.

While we were looking at proc damage, we also noticed that mana-hungry champions were generally itemizing effectively, but falling a bit on the weaker side. As such, we’re lowering the gold cost of mana items across the board so these champions should be able to access their power spikes a bit more quickly.

Archangel's Staff / Seraph's Embrace

  • Combine Cost: 500 ⇒ 400

Rift Herald

The new Rift Herald has proven to be a bit too hard to control, especially as players are learning how to steer correctly, so we’re making the ability to turn a bit easier and giving Herald a few small quality of life buffs. (Note: If you let the Herald direction indicator end without clicking it will not accept the direction as an input. This bug is something we’re working on correcting on our end, so for now please click the indicator.)
  • newSlow Start: For the first three seconds after spawning, Rift Herald has very high maneuverability and will be easier to turn. Every 2 seconds after Herald slowly becomes less maneuverable as its speed increases.
  • Damage from Wall Collision: Crashing into a wall while controlling Herald will deal damage equal to that of crashing into a tower to Shelly ⇒ Crashing into a wall while controlling Herald will deal 20% of the damage received compared to crashing into a tower to Shelly
  • We Don’t Have All Game…: Player-summoned Rift Herald trinket spawning has been sped up by 1 second.

Patch 14.2 Notes

Things are heating up in 14.2, say hi to Smolder everyone!

In this week's patch we’re looking to address some of the champions that the 14.1 changes hit hardest. Some champs, like Camille and Illaoi, need the help due to the terrain changes, while others, like Ezreal and Fizz, struggled or thrived with the new items at their disposal. In addition to champion balance changes, we’re also retuning a few of the items to get them into a better place. But that’s not all, we also have a whole list of quality of life changes!

Make sure you check out the sections below on Vanguard and our Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 deprecation coming in the next few patches.

Over in TFT, Lunar Festival has begun, bringing new cosmetics and TFT’s first ever set revival game mode (the return of Galaxies), so be sure to check out all the details at the TFT patch notes here!

Patch Highlights

Primal Ambush Sivir, Primal Ambush Riven, Primal Ambush Vi, Primal Ambush Talon, Three Honors Akshan, and Foreseen Yasuo will be available on January 24, 2024 at 20:00 UTC.

Our newest champion Smolder, the Fiery Fledgling, (and his Heavenscale skin) will be heating up the Rift on January 31, 2024 at 20:00 UTC!


In a few weeks we will be introducing Vanguard, Riot’s proprietary anti-cheat software that will be required for all League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics games. Starting patch 14.2, we will run a diagnostics check to see if your computer is ready for this update. If not, please review our troubleshooting guide or reach out to Player Support.

If you originally failed the check, it will re-run at a later point or you can manually re-run it by clicking on the settings icon on the top right and “Check for Compatibility” under General > Vanguard System Check.

This will not mean that Vanguard is active or being used for League yet, this is just to give players ample heads up and opportunity to be ready before it’s a requirement. For more information please check out our support article on Vanguard.

Windows Min Spec Update

Beginning Wednesday February 21st (patch 14.4), we are updating our minimum system requirements and will no longer be supporting Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 for all League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics games. To maintain the stability and performance of our game we sometimes need to deprecate support for legacy Operating Systems that aren’t widely used by our players. If you’re still playing on these versions of Windows, please consider updating to continue playing. Please see our min spec support page for more details.

MMR and Matchmaking

  • Reducing the amount of games of demotion protection from tier boundaries (eg. Gold to Silver). This should only affect people who seed/promote into the bottom of a rank tier (eg. Gold 4) and then lose many games in a row. It will make no difference if you’ve been in the rank for a while.
  • Fixed a bug where a small number of Diamond 1 players would sometimes receive negative LP gains (losing more LP on losses than gaining on wins). Unfortunately, while we cannot immediately resolve this issue for existing accounts, the problem will resolve itself with some games.
  • Fixed a bug where players who would be seeded into Iron IV were seeded into Iron II with negative LP gains

Patch 14.1: How it Landed

We’ve been pretty happy with how 14.1 landed in terms of bug stability and overall balance after the 14.1 hotfix. Game time is stable, objective balance looks good, the tradeoffs associated with playing towards top and bot side seems to be reasonable, and snowballing is down. That said, we’re well aware that the amount of burst in the game is up. Some of these burst increases are due to Stormsurge and Bloodsong releasing strong (you’ll see nerfs to them in this patch and we’ll be watching how they land). We also increased AP values across the board, as having 200 AP at 3 items was pretty unsatisfying for players. We wanted to see how these AP increases landed to help identify which champion’s AP ratios or base damages need to be adjusted. We also wanted to reduce Ability Haste on items across the board and naturally, this means that more of an item’s power budget is in burst (either AP or AD).

We’re pursuing some burst reductions in 14.2 through stat shard changes, and targeted item/champion nerfs. Once we’ve done a comprehensive audit on which champions/classes are bursting which classes harder, and by how much, you can expect to see additional changes in 14.3 and beyond. Our goal right now is to get burst levels back to how they were in patch 13.24. We hope you’ve been enjoying all of the new changes and looking forward to seeing you on the Rift!

Stat Shard Changes

Stat Shards

We’re updating some stat shards this patch in order to create more strategically compelling choices that aren’t as punishing when improperly selected. When choosing between Armor and Magic Resist shards, it’s generally clear which is the better option (am I laning against Zed or Lissandra?), and that’s really all there is to it today. What’s more, unorthodox lane opponents, such as mages in Bot Lane, tend to throw players off, leading to non-optimal shard selections that contribute to strong statistical performances on these mages (despite not actually being as powerful as stats would suggest).

With that said, we’re replacing those less interesting decisions with more in-depth ones that are less likely to punish players for incorrect selections. Now you will be able to choose a non-damage and non-durability option in the Flex row and choose between early durability, late durability, and some targeted defenses via tenacity in the Defense row.

Row 2: Flex Shard Options

  • Slot 1: 9 Adaptive Force (unchanged)
  • newSlot 2: 6 Armor ⇒ 2% Move Speed
  • newSlot 3: 8 Magic Resist ⇒ 10-180 (based on level) bonus health

Row 3: Defensive Shard Options

  • newSlot 1: 15-140 (based on level) bonus health ⇒ 65 base health
  • newSlot 2: 6 Armor ⇒ 10% Tenacity and Slow Resist
  • newSlot 3: 8 Magic Resist ⇒ 10-180 (based on level) bonus health

Jungle Companion Compensation

Due to many junglers losing armor on their first clears, we’re increasing jungle heal per second slightly. Running flat health will provide plenty of early game safety and scaling health was already viable on a large number of them as well.
  • Jungle Companion Heal per Second: 12-35 (based on level) 14-37 (based on level)

Patch 14.1 Notes

Welcome to the 2024 Season! Split 1 kickoff is quickly approaching, so make sure to read up on all the changes coming in 14.1 to get ready. THIS IS THE YEAR WE HIT OUR RANKED GOALS!

Ranked Season 2024


Welcome to the 2024 Ranked Season! We’re going to be kicking off the first split of the year in this patch with ranked queues opening on January 10th. For those that missed the ranked queues closing details in the last patch notes you can read those here.

Season 2024 Split 1 starts at 12:00:00 January 10, 2024 according to regional local time everywhere except for LA1 and NA1:
  • LA1 starts at 9am, Jan 10 CST

The season transition experience will be similar to what we had in the past: Ranked queues will be disabled for a couple of hours, and will be brought back as soon as 14.1 is up, and a couple of hours after that, Split 1 will be officially launched! The ranked games played during the downtime won't count towards your new season progression.

Shard transfers will be disabled before season end, and re-enabled after all end of season rewards are granted.


For those who earned it, Victorious Tryndamere will be the reward for the 2023 Split 2 season! We mentioned it in one of our recent Dev Updates but this skin will be a little delayed so you should expect him to appear on your accounts in a few patches. We wanted to make sure we had a unique skin for each split so we opted to take some time to ensure those that participated in split 2 received a different reward than split 1. We’ll add it to the notes on the patch that should happen as well, right now we’re targeting patch 14.4, and we’ll update you if anything changes there.

As for the remaining rewards (of which you can see the details on our Ranked Rewards support article) those should be delivered onto your accounts in 14.2 and we’ve validated the results.

Void Gameplay Changes

In case you missed this one as well, we released a dev blog late last year to offer players a helping hand when it comes to learning about the Void changes coming this patch, /dev: Cat Cults, Rift Mechs, and Baron’s Revamp here! If you’re interested in how we refined these changes OR if the idea of seeing 11 adorable cats combining their forces to seal Rift Herald appeals to you, give it a read!

Disclaimer: Void Event not included


We’ve got some brand new residents moving into the Baron pit this season: the Voidgrubs and Voidmites. These Voidborn beasties are a new horde objective that will be taking the place of the first Rift Herald each game. Our goal with Voidgrubs was to provide tower pushing pressure in contrast to dragon buff's ramping threat, but spread it out more evenly across all lanes. We also wanted to give players gradual, persistent power throughout the entire game, as opposed to the old Shelly whose power was more instant and would sometimes simply end the laning phase. In addition, its multiple spawn nature means that mid or top laners who have pushed out their lane can sneak one without needing to commit the full time it would take to clear an entire epic objective. But let’s jump into the details!
  • Three Voidgrubs spawn at 5 minutes into the game.
  • Each Voidgrub will spawn 4 Voidmites every 12 seconds in combat.
  • Voidgrubs can respawn once per game as each one has their own individual respawn timer of 4 minutes, so feel free to just take one and walk away.
  • On death, Voidgrubs will give other nearby Voidgrubs a 25% Maximum Health + 25% Missing Health shield that decays over 10 seconds.
  • Killing one Voidgrub grants the player and allied teammates one stack of the Hunger of the Void Buff, which causes your non-proc attacks to deal bonus true damage to structures over 4 seconds. This damage will scale with the number of Voidgrubs slain at a rate of 4 (melee) / 3 (ranged) true damage every 0.5 seconds per stack.
  • Once your team hits 5 stacks of the buff, you will spawn 1 Voidmite to help when attacking towers (15 second cooldown). At 6 stacks the amount of Voidmites is increased to 2. Voidmites summoned by players have the same stats as a melee minion, but with 40% less health and 50% more movespeed.
  • Voidgrubs despawn at 13:45 in-game time (or 13:55 if Voidgrubs are in combat) to make way for Rift Herald.
  • The first Voidgrub taken per spawn group* will count as an epic takedown reward for the first one you participate in killing. For example, Cho’Gath can get one epic monster stack from the first Voidgrub he kills in the first spawn group, and then one more if he kills a Voidgrub that spawned in the second group. (*The Voidgrubs that spawn at 5 minutes are the first spawn group, and once slain the Voidgrubs that replace them are the second spawn group.)


  • Health: 250 (+250 per minute of game time)
  • Attack Damage: 10 (+2.5 per minute of game time)
  • Attack Speed: 0.5
  • Armor: 0
  • Magic Resistance: 0
  • Movement Speed: 350
  • Attack Range: 500 units
  • Experience: 75 (+2% per level over 4*) (*Level is calculated as the average level of champions in the game, rounded up)
  • Gold Given on Takedown: 20 gold to the killer + 10 gold per player (including killer)


  • Health: 20 (+40 per minute of game time)
  • Attack Damage: 6 (+0.5 per minute of game time)
  • Attack Speed: 2
  • Armor: 0
  • Magic Resistance: 0
  • Movement Speed: 420
  • Attack Range: 125
  • Experience: 0
  • Gold Given on Takedown: 1 gold to killer


Rift Herald is back and they have a brand new, Voidgrub-inspired look! But this isn’t just a surface level change, because Herald also has some changes under the hood… err, shell?
  • If you or an allied teammate summon the Rift Herald, one player (either the user or a teammate) can right click the Herald in order to hop onto Shelly. Right clicking any direction while channeling onto Herald will allow the player to pick where Herald will start charging. While charging, players can steer the Rift Herald while she charges forward (similar to a Sion ultimate).
  • The Rift Herald receives 1 use of Charge when summoned which is consumed as soon as a player hops onto Herald (or when Herald automatically Charges a tower unpiloted). In the event a nearby enemy tower or inhibitor is destroyed, Herald will receive an additional Charge. This Charge (and cooldown) is displayed on Rift Herald’s health bar.
  • The Charge lasts for up to 14 seconds, starting at 150 movement speed and ramping up to 600 movement speed over 5 seconds (this is increased by 75% when charging towards an enemy tower). The charge will end upon collision with a structure or terrain, reducing the Herald’s health by 66% and ejecting the player 200 (+75% of player’s attack range) units in the opposite direction of the charge. In the event Herald’s Charge hits a live tower the ejection distance is increased to 700 (+75% of player’s attack range) units.
  • If a player steers the Rift Herald through enemies (including champions), the enemy will receive 250 true damage and be knocked airborne.
  • If a player steers the Rift Herald into an enemy structure a bonus 2000 (+0-750 based on average champion level) damage will be dealt to the structure, 5 (+ the number of Hunger of the Void stacks of the user) Voidmites will be spawned to attack the tower, and the player will gain a temporary shield.
  • NEWRift Herald now has Baron’s Gaze which reduces damage taken from the last enemy attacked by 50%.
  • Empowered Recall: The holder gains Empowered Recall until the Eye is used/expires ⇒ All allied champions who assisted in killing Herald gain a single completed use of Empowered Recall
  • Sharing (Gold) is Caring: Rift Herald grants any gold it gains from turrets/turret plates to the player that summoned them (if they weren't around) ⇒ Rift Herald grants any gold it gains from turrets/turret plates to all champions who assisted in killing the Herald
  • NEWAuto Cast: Upon expiring, the Eye of the Herald will auto-cast with no channel time and summon Rift Herald. In the event your champion is currently dead, the Herald will spawn in your team’s fountain.

Rift Herald (Note: Unchanged)

  • Health: 7125-14250 (based on level)
  • Attack Damage: 99.5-250 (based on level)
  • Attack Speed: 0.4
  • Armor: 60
  • Magic Resistance: 50
  • Movement Speed: 325
  • Attack Range: 250
  • Experience: 306-320 (based on level)
  • Gold Given on Takedown: 100 gold to killer, 100 local gold


Once Baron Nashor emerges onto the Rift at 20 minutes, the next time Blue Sentinel and Red Brambleback respawn they will rise again as Voidborn Sentinel and Voidborn Brambleback respectively with 30% more health. This transformation also comes with increased durability making them harder to take down, but fret not because this extra effort is worth it! Now, once slain, Blue and Red will grant their buffs to the entire team of the player that takes them down (excluding any allies that were dead).

Speaking of Blue and Red, their respective buffs are also getting some changes! (Note: These adjustments apply to both the base Sentinel and Brambleback as well as their Voidborn counterparts.
  • Crest of Insight (Blue Buff): 5/10/15/20 Haste 10 Haste
  • Crest of Cinders (Red Buff): 0.5/1/3/5% Max Health Regeneration (levels 1/4/6/11) 0.5/1/3% Max Health Regeneration (levels 1/4/6)
  • When the buffs become Voidborn they no longer transfer to opponents upon the owner’s death (mainly to prevent giant messes with everyone having buffs all the time)

But we also have a non-void related update for our favorite Sentinel and Brambleback! Introducing Draconic Sentinel and Brambleback, these versions appear once the Elemental Rift is locked in as the 2nd drake is slain. Unlike their Voidborn counterparts though, no respawn is required for the buff to become Draconic!
  • Upon death, Draconic Sentinel and Brambleback will give the champion that slayed them a version of their respective buff (buffs unchanged) and drop a duplicate of their buff at their original spawn location. Only one buff will be shareable with allies while the other must be claimed by an allied champion with a jungle item in their inventory (unchanged vs live).
  • Starting at 20 minutes, once slain the Draconic Brambleback and Sentinel will respawn as their Voidborn counterparts.
  • Blue/Red Buff sharing mechanics are no longer tied to Jungle item progression.

Similarly, after 20 minutes once Rift Scuttler rises again after being slain, she will be Voidborn Scuttler. When slain, Voidborn Scuttler will send out a massive Scryer’s Bloom effect, revealing all champions and wards in a large surrounding area. Similar to Scryer’s, all wards revealed this way will be reduced to 1 HP.


Would it really be a set of Void-related changes without Baron Nashor himself? It’s been quite a while since Baron last received a visual update, let alone one with three new, terrifying forms! Introducing them from left to right, we have the All-Seeing Baron, Hunting Baron, and finally the Territorial Baron.

The Baron dance is one as old as time, but over the years, the Baron fight has gotten somewhat stale with players hyper optimizing every aspect of it. It's also not aged well as our premier epic monster, the kind of monster that makes you say “Wow that’s an epic monster.” Our goal here is to update Baron's visuals while freshening up his fight a bit using new terrain and spells so that it takes a bit of new mastery and adaptability game to game.

Each form of Baron Nashor will have a unique move at their disposal, so make sure to prepare accordingly!
  • Hunting Baron: Baron calls a pillar of lightning over every nearby enemy. After 0.7 seconds they begin to strike, delayed by 0.1 second per strike. These deal 15% of the target’s current health.
  • All-Seeing Baron: Baron summons rifts toward the two furthest enemies he can see within 2200 units. These last for 3 seconds and deal 150 magic damage on the first hit, and 50 damage for every subsequent hit.
  • Territorial Baron: Baron reaches out, after 1.5 seconds he grabs all enemies in a cone, pulling them 300 units and dealing 75 magic damage to them.

  • Health: 11400 (+180 per minute from game start)
  • Attack Damage: 350 (+ 10 per minute from spawn) (Note: AD will cap at 520)
  • Attack Speed: 0.625
  • Armor: 120
  • Magic Resistance: 70

  • Attack Range: 955
  • Experience: 600 to all contributors plus 800 distributed among nearby allied teammates
  • Gold Given on Takedown: 25 gold to killer, 300 per allied player


Fighting around Baron has been essentially unchanged since Baron got his last VGU, so we thought it was time to add a little bit more interest to his fight game to game. While Baron is still a fun and interesting objective to have on the map, over time players have effectively “solved” how to take him down. And where’s the fun in that? This should help shake things up between games so now each game you’ll be challenged to think about exactly how you can take advantage of each Baron pit.

Hunting Baron Pit

This is the baseline Baron pit, but why fix what isn’t broken? His new spell in this pit punishes grouped up enemies so make sure to distance properly.

Territorial Baron Pit

A rifft on the baseline pit, it's easier to disengage from enemies in this variation, but flanks are also faster. His new spell in this pit can punish heavy grouping to disincentivize grouping on a single side.

All-Seeing Baron Pit

This is the most different from the pit of today, it's much riskier to access Baron from the river in this variation with new strong flank and flee angles. His new spell in this pit goes far and controls zones locking up some of the free new space that he’s made here.

Terrain Changes

In case you missed it we released a dev blog late last year digging into these terrain changes, /Dev: Season 2024 Map Changes here! We recommend checking out the entire thing if you’re curious about how we landed on these changes.

We’ve got a few different goals with the map changes this season. At the highest level, our goal is to make lanes more fair across sides. Red and blue sides have very different advantages in a lane with respect to how to gank them, how fights play out, how you can posture against the brush or river, etc. These differences will still exist, but in lesser ways. For example, top lane red side won’t feel nearly so exposed when pushing up, so you don’t need to be a safer laner to exist when the champ select gods put you red side.

The second goal of the map changes was specifically around making solo lanes a bit more protected from junglers, or roamers generally. Ganking as a primary early game output was just too strong in most cases. Each lane had a slightly different reason for their changes however. Let’s take a quick dive into those now!


Top lane is in a constant push and pull between players wanting more influence and output over the rest of the map in the lane, and also being substantially less influenced by the other roles, especially early on. For most players, the lane simultaneously feels entirely at the mercy of your jungler (or roaming support in higher skill levels) and also unable to do anything to win the game except with major leads.

With these changes we’re substantially reducing the ability for other lanes to affect top in the early game, letting the 1v1 fight really shine. It’s not like the jungler won’t be able to gank at all, so still watch out. We’re also shifting top brush into a pixel in the center of the river so it’s less side-skewed and substantially more powerful when contested. It tends to be correct to ward outside of the river brush on live in many cases and while this still remains true to an extent, this brush is closer to an optimal warding position and is less potent for ganking than before.

Also, an extension of the jungler influence on top lane was early Rift Herald. More often than not, Rift Herald was dropped in top lane (it’s closest to her lair after all), and she absolutely destroys any laning phase that might exist. What’s a tower to a crab god? Shelly regularly invalidated laning phases by destroying towers and adding giant influxes of gold to a specific laner, usually entirely at the jungler’s whim. We’ve seen that quite often both top laners are dissatisfied with lanes breaking apart this early—the behind player being put into the dumpster, and the ahead player not having any more time to play with their lead. By pushing back Rift Herald, we’re intending to substantially reduce the volatility of the late laning phase top lane experience. Dovetailing off the objective space, one of our goals with the new Voidgrubs objective is that top laners will have a lot more agency in affecting the outcome of the early top side objective than before. We’re also making the top side objective more potent for team-wide success than previously so that their early leads can matter more for the team. We’ll go more into the Voidgrubs down below, but overall we’re aiming to give top laners a lane more protected from outside influence while making their lane more important for the team’s overall chances of victory.


Mid lane was a similar set of changes for some slightly different goals. It is the lane (on live) with by far the most access for ganking, and one thing we’ve noticed is that over the years players have learned just how unsafe the lane is for a lot of our more immobile champions without great self-peel. The Zyras and Brands and Karthuses of League have felt like the midlane was no longer able to be their home as more and more high-agency characters appeared and junglers learned just how easy it was to punish these immobile mages.

Our main goal here was to make mid substantially safer for this class of characters at a fundamental level. Opening up midlane to be mage-forward should give us a real role for this class again. The goal is not at all to push assassins out of this lane, just make it more hospitable for immobile characters with respect to their ability to face junglers. They’re still definitely gankable, but should be a bit less so than they are currently.

The other main change for mid was to open up roam paths that are a little bit safer. Each side will have a path players can roam along that requires putting themselves at substantially less risk to get to river or even the respective lane they’re roaming to. We’re pushing out the mid lane brush for the same reasons. Providing mid laners with about 20% more time after seeing an enemy before they can get into actionable range should give substantially less power to early ganks and much more safety to these immobile characters.

Mid lane, at its core, is a lane that requires some amount of roaming to support junglers or side lanes. And in the current state of League, the mid laners who don’t have the agency to safely roam feel invalidated by the role. Altogether our goal here is to lower the requirements to a functional mid laner across champions so that we can support a wider roster of champions there, particularly immobile mages and their like. We are definitely not trying to push champions out of the role though and will definitely be balancing to follow up here, especially since there are surely a number of high-agency mages who will benefit a lot and be overbearing at the start.


Bot lane is getting a smaller set of changes visually, but we definitely still expect them to be quite impactful overall. Just like top lane, we’re adding parity across sides so that entrances to lane and brush positions are matched roughly equally across sides.

These changes open up a new gank pathway through bottom red jungle and are among our riskiest changes to the map. We’re reducing gank potency elsewhere while nominally increasing it bot lane, so we’ll be watching this portion of the map very closely to ensure that it’s still reasonable and enjoyable. Red side bot lane is now particularly more vulnerable than before (as opposed to blue side) because it doesn’t have the extra distance created from Dragon pit walls to give more time for responding to action on vision or even just to slightly delay movement from river.

This new gank pathway also doesn’t allow for as easy contesting of vision in its tri brush because of the relatively easier access from river. It’s a difficult spot on the map for us to balance and one we’ll look at closely. The center of river brush should also be more of a focal point to contest as compared to before as it has deeper river control than the old brush and is less side-skewed.

This brush should be substantially worse for ganking red-side bot lane when unwarded, however. On live, the river brush gives near unfettered access to lane and this power is brought down to mitigate the concerns around gankability of red-side bot lane. Notably, this brush does cover access to the red tri brush from river to protect your bot lane from all but the deepest wraparound ganks.


Finally, we adjusted the geometry in the jungle to support these lane adjustments and add a lot of new interest to Dragon and Baron fights. Access to these epic monster fights on live is relatively easy through a major choke point opposite the monster, or minor chokepoints deeper into river or the jungle further out.

The latest adjustments aim to shift away from a single choke point and focus combat around multiple entries, as well as generally overhaul how these fights play out as this space is quite solved and players are very used to this macro. Contesting should be a little bit more equal across sides as it currently tends to advantage the team who can comfortably engage and escape from an objective.

These adjustments as noted above also do help roaming quite a bit as there’s a safe secondary path for both teams that doesn’t involve any jungle movement. All in all, our goal is that junglers should have a harder time ganking, especially early, but shouldn’t feel like they have no more agency over the game.

Infernal Terrain Changes

Given the terrain changes we’ve introduced in 14.1, we also need to adjust some Drakes so that they’ll play nicely with all of the new walls (or lack thereof). This includes moving a few small walls and brushes for Mountain and Ocean Drake.

However, after we spent so much time building walls across the rift we took a step back to look at Infernal’s map changes again, which led to the following changes:
  • NEWInfernal Cinders spawn randomly on the map in small groups, with a higher likelihood of spawning towards the losing team. Picking up a naturally spawned Infernal Cinder grants a small burst of movement speed and grants an Infernal Cinder stack.
  • NEWInfernal Cinder stacks grant 0.3 Ability Haste per stack. On death, up to 5 Cinders can be maintained, with some of the remainder being dropped on the ground and the rest being destroyed. Cinders dropped from player deaths do not grant the burst of movement speed upon pickup.
  • REMOVEDInfernal Rift will no longer destroy any walls on the Rift.

We wanted to experiment with these changes after considering player feedback about the Infernal Rift being the least interesting in terms of gameplay. Our goal is that this will help us create more interesting map states beyond just terrain changes like the current Hextech and Chemtech. That said, we’ll keep a close eye on how these changes land and how players like them.



Base armor increased.

As players are still learning Hwei, we’re giving him a small bump up in power, primarily for the sake of Hwei’s teammates, who are on the receiving end of a fairly low win rate. Long term, we think Hwei is probably in a very good spot or maybe a little too powerful but we’re tuning him for January, not June. We’ll continue to monitor his performance and make adjustments as needed.

Base Stats

  • Base Armor: 18 ⇒ 21


E quality of life adjustments.

Following up on some work from the last patch, we have a few additional quality of life buffs for Vel’Koz’s Tectonic Disruption.

E - Tectonic Disruption

  • Projectile Travel Time: 0.55 seconds (fixed) ⇒ 0.25-0.55 seconds (based on travel distance
  • Not So Fast: Vel’Koz’s E now creates its circular ability indicator 0.25 seconds after the ability was cast instead of immediately after casting

Jungle Damage Adjustments

With the Summoner's Rift map update making ganking generally more difficult, we want to make sure that champions who relied on ganking now have a strong fallback pattern of farming jungle camps. We're adjusting the damage contribution of jungle pets in order to close the gap between very fast clears like Graves or Karthus and slower clears like... pretty much every tank. The percent bonus damage from pets does not work on epic monsters, so a new cap has been added against epic monsters that roughly matches last patch's DPS tuning, since pet DPS is increasing otherwise.

As with all changes like this, it's hard to get a perfect read on every single possible jungler, plus the rest of the patch will certainly shake up champion power levels as well. We'll make sure to revisit these numbers if clears feel bad, but these changes should overall be a buff to mid-game clears for all the champions who were otherwise too slow to participate.
  • Champion Bonus Damage to Non-Epic Monsters: 42% ⇒ 25%
  • Pet Damage per Second: 15.5 (+10% bonus AD) (+12% AP) (+20% bonus Armor) (+20% bonus Magic Resistance) (+ 3% bonus Health) true damage ⇒ 20-90 (based on level) (+10% bonus AD) (+12% AP) (+20% bonus Armor) (+20% bonus Magic Resistance) (+ 3% bonus Health) true damage
  • NEWPet Damage per Second Cap vs Epic Monsters: 16-40 (based on level)


As of patch 14.1 we are officially retiring Mythic items from League. If you’re curious about why we’re removing Mythic items, I’d recommend checking out this Quick Gameplay Thoughts here or if you’re more interested in some of the thinking and goals behind the updated item system you can check out one of our recent dev blogs, /Dev: 2024 Item Changes here!

To summarize, our main goal with this update is to reduce the power of items that were previously Mythic by converting them to Legendary which, while making ex-Mythic items less powerful, will allow for each champion’s unique gameplay to shine. Additionally, we want to ensure that each class is properly supported (like having Assassins items be early game skewed or giving mages better gold scaling) and to make each spell cast feel more important to players by lowering the overall amount of Haste items give.

We’ve got a lot of item descriptions to cover below, so see you on the other side! (Note: All Mythic item passives have been removed.)

Assassin Items

In previous Seasons AD Assassins tended to purchase one or two Lethality items before pivoting into other options in the AD system, particularly fighter items. We believe Assassins are at their best when they're highly lethal but highly fragile anti-carry, and when they have fighter builds they tend to not be satisfying their own fantasies on top of being more frustrating and harder to deal with for enemies.

Our goals with these changes are to remove some of the more potent defensive tools assassins were accessing (like Duskblade or Eclipse) and open them up to stronger snowballing through the Assassin system with the lethality purchases. We've also removed their ability to stack Black Cleaver and Last Whisper items so that Assassins don't end up as premium killers of bruisers and reasonably effective against tanks as we believe armor should be an effective purchase into Assassins.

Support Items and Quests

With the 2024 season, we saw a great opportunity to transform the Support Quest Item system. The old support items didn't bring a lot of customization or flavor to your builds. And despite being objectively powerful, they weren’t satisfying as some champions or play styles were underserved. Enter a universal support item that branches into five. Now, with the choice of five distinct passives to choose from, support items will be able to cover a broader range of champions and playstyles. Additionally, these changes should also help your upgrade moment feel more engaging and powerful.

These upgrades were designed to be powerful, as they’re typically acquired around the time you finish your first item. This one and a half item power spike was actually designed to create a period of time within the early to mid game where supports can have their biggest power spikes and influence the game most meaningfully. Going forward, this will allow us to better define when supports have satisfying power in the game and, ultimately, help inform how we’re balancing that power.

The following items have been removed: Relic Shield, Targon’s Buckler, Steel Shoulderguards, Runesteel Spaulders, Spellthief’s Edge, Frostfang, Spectral Sickle, and Harrowing Crescent.

The Perfect Timing Rune has been removed and replaced with Triple Tonic.

Triple Tonic

  • At level 3, gain an Elixir of Avarice.
  • Elixir of Avarice: On use, gain 5 true damage on-hit against minions for 60 seconds. At the end of this effect, gain 40 gold.
  • At level 6, gain an Elixir of Force.
  • Elixir of Force: On use, gain 20 Adaptive Force for 60 seconds.
  • At level 9, gain an Elixir of Skill.
  • Elixir of Skill: On use, gain a skill point. (Note: This does not grant a level or modify the rules around adding skill points into abilities)

Tower Adjustments

Towers have been on the more fragile end for a while now, but with the addition of more tower damage coming from Voidgrubs, we thought it was time to give them a bit more durability. We want towers to feel like something that you can actually protect and reduce how easy it is for some teams to immediately win by blasting through three towers. We're also adjusting the backdoor bonus (reduced damage to towers when there are no nearby allied minions) to be more potent as it was often being ignored by champions later into the game. Now it will also apply to true damage rather than entirely nullifying it so that it's consistent across damage types.
  • Inner Tower Health: 3600 ⇒ 4000
  • Inhibitor Tower Health: 3300 ⇒ 3500
  • Nexus Tower Health: 2700 ⇒ 3000
  • Backdoor Bonus: Now reduces True Damage to towers rather than nullifying it entirely
  • Backdoor Damage Reduction Amount: 66.666% ⇒ 80%

Ranked Changes

Alongside the launch of the new season we’ll also be making some behind-the-scenes changes that should help improve the overall ranked experience.
  • Narrowing Emerald Tier: While overall we believe the new Emerald tier is accomplishing our goal of spreading out the ladder, the range of skill levels within Emerald is currently a bit too wide, so we’re going to be making Emerald a bit smaller. This, among other changes, should also help to correct instances of players Emerald rank and above receiving more LP per loss than LP per win.
  • Visible Rank Differences: While promoting ranks was made easier in 2023, there weren’t any adjustments to demotions, which led to some players having much higher visible ranks than their actual MMR. To correct this, demoting has been made a little easier to help avoid situations where a player could have a visible rank of Platinum, but actually have a Silver MMR. Additionally, we’ve also made adjustments to matchmaking so that the range of visible ranks within a lobby are tighter.
  • Modified LP Gains: The LP gain increase to +/-25 per game we introduced last year has done a good job of helping players move up or down a division within a session, which we’re currently pretty happy with. That said, We’ve learned that this amount of LP isn’t sustainable in tiers Emerald and above where breadth of skill is higher. Due to this, LP gains at Emerald Tier and above have been decreased to roughly +/- 20 per game.
  • NEWNew Player Placements: We’ve updated how new players are placed in Ranked which should place them closer to their appropriate skill level.

Fist Bumps

Fist bumps. That’s right, Riot Games (whose logo is a fist bump) added an interactive fist bump into League of Legends for you to celebrate all the hype moments in game. All you need to do is activate the emote, wait for another team member to use the emote and then BOOM. Fist bump achieved. Queue the fireworks. (Note: the default keybind for this is [U])

The fist bump emote will only be visible to allied teammates and, in the incredibly embarrassing event that a teammate does not fist bump you back, your fist bump can transform into a thumbs up.

Dynamic Music

It’s been nearly 10 years since the last update of music for Summoner’s Rift (way back in 2015). And while we already have a music system that’s working, we wanted to find a way to level it up even more! With the addition of all of the new and updated Void creatures coming this season, we felt like there was a real opportunity to use music to enhance the feeling of taking these objectives. Cue Dynamic Music!

This new Dynamic Music system can be broken down into 3 components:
  • Locational Music
  • Contextual Music
  • Situational Music


We’re introducing musical “zones” into Summoner’s Rift. In other words, we play different music for different locations within the map as you enter them. Right now, it’s only the top side river (including the Baron pit) that has unique music, but make sure to go check it out!


Some of you might know that Summoner’s Rift’s base music evolves over time with the state of the game. The music gradually gets more complex and exciting as towers and inhibitors get taken down. So when we zone out the top side river, we also want it to have its own evolution within the zone as well.

Music will evolve as new objectives spawn with there being a total of 4 evolution states:
  • Neutral (nothing has spawned)
  • Voidgrubs
  • Rift Herald
  • Baron Nashor

Each of the monsters introduce their different personalities and stakes to the river—so naturally they each get their own unique music as well!


What if there was a way the music could react to what you, the player, are doing? The first place that feels like a natural tie-in is the idea of “raid boss music,”so why not add some music for these void objectives when you’re fighting them? This resulted in three unique pieces of music for when you are fighting Grubbies, Rift Herald, and Baron.

We hope that these changes make the map feel more alive and make each little corner of the map feel lived in and more interesting. We’re very excited for the launch of Dynamic Music for Summoner’s Rift and to see how you all like it!

In-Game Quests

From champions with sunglasses taking 1 less damage from Leona’s passive, to Rift Herald dance parties, hidden surprises are no stranger to League. In this patch, we’re introducing some additional in-game quests for a few champions to help bring their vibrant stories and personalities to life on the Rift! Read below for information on the quests, how to activate them, and the rewards you’ll get if you're able to win!


  • Champions: Hwei and Jhin
  • Quest Information: Jhin or Hwei must be the first to kill the other using their ultimate ability, proving death or despair as the more powerful art.
  • Quest Activation Conditions: 1) Hwei and Jhin must be on opposing teams 2) Hwei and Jhin must both be at least level 12
  • Quest Rewards: If Jhin wins he turns Hwei into his virtuosic magnum opus, earning him 4.444 Lethality. If Hwei wins, his visions of pain, and peace, and art deepen, earning him 3.33% Magic Penetration


  • Champions: Bel’Veth and Jax
  • Quest Information: Will Bel’Veth’s grand ambitions come to life, or will Jax be able to protect his fishing spot? Jax and Bel’Veth compete over Baron Nashor, with the first to slay him emerging victorious.
  • Quest Activation Conditions: 1) Bel’Veth and Jax must be on opposing teams 2) Rift Herald must have been taken prior to Baron
  • Quest Rewards: If he wins, Jax receives 5 stacks of Bel’Veth’s Passive, Death in Lavender which grants 0.28%-1% Attack Speed (based on level) per stack, and 5 more stacks each time he scores a takedown on Bel’Veth. Should Bel’Veth prevail, killing Jax will drop a Void Coral that grants Bel’Veth her extended, empowered true form


  • Champions: Nasus and Renekton
  • Quest Information: Can Nasus stop Renekton’s rage and protect Shurima, or will Renekton’s wrath consume everything? Be the first the kill the other while your ultimate ability is active to come out on top

  • Quest Rewards: The winner of Bad Blood will become 10% larger while in their increased ultimate size and its duration is extended by 10%, while the loser’s increased ultimate size will become 10% smaller


  • Champions: Shen and Zed
  • Quest Information: Can Shen stand against Zed’s shadows, or will the might of the dark prove too strong to overcome? Shen will win this quest if he takes down Zed before Zed kills two of Shen’s nearby allies (kill or assists will count). Zed will prevail if he kills two of Shen’s nearby allies without being taken down by Shen.
  • Quest Activation Conditions: 1) Shen and Zed must be on opposing teams 2) Shen and Zed must both be level 11
  • Quest Rewards: If Shen defeats Zed, the shield from his Ki Barrier will become 30% stronger. If Zed wins, his passive ability, Contempt for the Weak, will deal an additional 2% of the target’s maximum health


Due to the large amount of changes coming in this patch we won’t be making any changes to ARAM in 14.1, but we will be closely monitoring champion performance with the update and plan to implement follow up balance changes in the upcoming patch.



Due to the start of the new Ranked 2024 Season, Split 1 career stats will be reset.


Seasonal Challenges are going to be released alongside each ranked split in the 2024 season! There will be three sets of Challenges, each with a new unique title earnable at the Master rank. The Split 1 title will be Voidborn and the new Challenges are as follows:
  • Legendary Arms: 2024 Split 1 - Win Games with Legendary Items

Game Spectator Changes

What better way to ring in the new season than watching your friends start their climbs? In this patch we’re introducing a few changes to League’s spectator system to help modernize it for players. Fun fact, the 3 minute spectator delay was originally tied to ward timers, which are now 2 minutes 30 seconds. Can you guess what the new delay is? Anyway, now you’ll be able to spectate with 30 seconds less delay on Summoner’s Rift games and YOU CAN NOW SPECTATE ARENA AND TFT GAMES.
  • Summoner’s Rift Spectator Delay: 3 minutes ⇒ 2 minutes 30 seconds
  • ARAM Spectator Delay: 3 minutes ⇒ 60 seconds
  • NEWTeamfight Tactics Spectator Delay: 60 seconds
  • NEWArena Spectator Delay: 60 seconds
  • Spectatable Game Time: Spectators can view up to the last 5 minutes of gameplay prior to when they started spectating (may differ by region) ⇒ After clicking spectate, spectators will need to wait an amount of time equivalent to the delay before loading in, at which point they will be able to view the game time from when they pressed spectate onwards. The ability to view earlier gameplay prior to spectating has been removed, but don’t worry, you can still find footage of the full game using the replay feature.

Mythic Shop


In order to kick 2024 off right we’re sharing out the next several rotations for the Mythic Shop! Our goal here is to help you all plan out Mythic Essence acquisition and spending, so we’ll start out with a rolling list of approximately the next 3 months. This will include both the previously released Prestige and Mythic (aka Hextech) skins, but we’ll be leaving new Prestige skins and Seasonal Mythic skin reveals as their own surprise.

QoL Changes

W damage increased.

We're happy that Azir has a new suite of items to consider and that Nashor's Tooth finally functions as many players expect it should. Looking into his builds, Liandry's-Nashor's, Luden's-Nashor's, and Crown-Nashor's are all performing a little bit worse than they were in the last patch so we'll be walking back one of the smaller nerfs he received in 13.23.

W - Arise!

  • Damage: 2-77 (levels 10-18) (+50/65/80/95/110) (+55% AP) ⇒ 2-77 (levels 10-18) (+50/67/84/101/118) (+55% AP)


Base mana regeneration increased. R knock up duration increased.

Braum has some very sharp matchups in his current state. He's extremely strong as counter-engage into vanguards and is very weak in most ranged matchups where he doesn't really get to do anything. While he should be best served as a true defensive warden, we'd like to give him more agency in those weaker matchups. Mana regen should allow him more freedom to use abilities while a better Glacial Fissure will let him accomplish more outside of lane, while still being suboptimal for pure engage.

Base Stats

  • Base Mana Regeneration: 6 ⇒ 7

R - Glacial Fissure

  • Minimum Knock Up Duration: 0.3 seconds ⇒ 0.6 seconds
  • Secondary Target Knock Up Duration: 0.3 seconds ⇒ 0.6 seconds


Base armor decreased, attack speed ratio increased. Q damage increased. W bonus attack speed decreased. E damage resistance decreased, healing decreased. R damage decreased, damage type changed to magic.

Briar continues to devour her opposition in the jungle as players continue to get better at her, so we need to pull her power back a bit more. While we're nerfing all her builds with these changes, we're targeting lethality builds more. To that end, we're shifting R to magic damage and throwing in a buff to her attack speed ratio. With the attack speed ratio change, Briar's overall attack speed will be higher when building Stridebreaker, while staying close to the same on builds that don't purchase any attack speed. This should help make up for the nerf to W.

Base Stats

  • Base Armor: 32 ⇒ 30
  • Attack Speed Ratio: 0.644 ⇒ 0.669 (Note: Attack speed at level 1 is unchanged.)

Q - Head Rush

  • Damage: 60/95/130/165/200 (+80% bonus AD) ⇒ 60/90/120/150/180 (+80% bonus AD)

W - Blood Frenzy

  • Bonus Attack Speed: 60/75/90/105/120% ⇒ 55/70/85/100/115%

E - Chilling Scream

  • Damage Reduction: 40% ⇒ 35%
  • Healing: 10/11.5/13/14.5/16% of Maximum Health ⇒ 9/10/11/12/13% of Maximum Health

R - Certain Death

  • Damage: 150/300/450 (+75% bonus AD) (+110% AP) Physical Damage ⇒ 150/300/450 (+50% bonus AD) (+120% AP) Magic Damage


Q cooldown decreased.

We're back again to follow up on our Galio changes as he's still not performing as well as we'd like him to. Our last two adjustments were intended to buff Galio's unique strengths such as his semi-global ultimate and anti-mage durability. This round, we're giving Galio players more individual power in the form of lowering his Q cooldown so he can better duel with his opponents because it's currently quite high despite being his primary poke/clear ability.

Q - Winds of War

  • Cooldown: 12/11.5/11/10.5/10 seconds ⇒ 12/11/10/9/8 seconds


Passive cooldown now decreases with level.

Back in patch 13.12 we released a Gragas nerf that increased his passive cooldown from 8 to 12 seconds. We've updated this to have his passive scale down as the game goes on. This is intended to give Gragas players more frequent access to his passive at later points in the game so he can sustain better during teamfights and while side-laning, but without reintroducing the oppressive sustain he had earlier this year.

Passive - Happy Hour

  • Cooldown: 12 seconds ⇒ 12/10/8/6 seconds (levels 1/6/11/16)


Base health decreased. E slow decreased.

Ivern remained unaffected when other junglers' clears were made slightly slower in patch 13.20. As a result, he's become one of the best junglers in the current game. We'd just like to take a small swing at his high base health in hopes of balancing him against other junglers and making him a bit more vulnerable to invades. Because Friend of the Forest's health cost is based on Ivern's base health, this change will have no impact on his ability to clear camps unless he gets directly damaged by his enemies. Beyond that, we're taking a small bite out of Triggerseed's slow as it locks down opponents a bit harder than we'd like, considering he has other harder-to-land crowd control abilities.

Base Stats

  • Base Health: 655 ⇒ 630

E - Triggerseed

  • Slow: 50/55/60/65/70% ⇒ 45/50/55/60/65%


W mana cost decreased, damage increased.

We overshot our nerf on K'Sante last patch but we're happy with the parts of his kit that we addressed. Now that we've nerfed the lane safety provided by his Q, we're aiming to buff him by making Path Maker a more active part of his laning phase through softening its mana cost and then increasing his reliance on gold income via these ratio buffs.

W - Path Maker

  • Mana Cost: 60/65/70/75/80 ⇒ 40/45/50/55/60
  • Damage: 20/40/60/80/100 (+50% AD) (+30% bonus armor) (+30% bonus magic resistance) (+6/7/8/9/10% target's maximum health) ⇒ 20/40/60/80/100 (+50% AD) (+50% bonus armor) (+50% bonus magic resistance) (+6/7/8/9/10% target's maximum health)


W bonus armor and MR increased. R damage increased.

Leona isn't the shining beam of light she once was and could use a bit more power. In order to get her glimmering again we're aiming to enhance her ability to all-in, as she has to commit harder to her engages than other similar supports and her engage capability is a primary reason for picking her. We're targeting her R damage and late-game W resistances specifically to give her more power in a way that doesn't affect her first few levels.

W - Eclipse

  • Bonus Armor: 20/25/30/35/40 (+20% bonus armor) ⇒ 20/27.5/35/42.5/50 (+20% bonus armor)
  • Bonus Magic Resistance: 20/25/30/35/40 (+20% bonus magic resistance) ⇒ 20/27.5/35/42.5/50 (+20% bonus magic resistance)

R - Solar Flare

  • Damage: 100/175/250 (+80% AP) ⇒ 150/225/300 (+80% AP)


E cooldown decreased.

Lucian is currently struggling in solo queue and could use a helping hand. Since our last two adjustments were to his Vigilance passive (which he's reliant on his team for) we're now choosing a buff that will give Lucian players themselves more power. We've decided to reduce his E cooldown, as Lucian is supposed to be powerful early, and this cooldown has some room to go down and still scale to the same level by mid game.

E - Relentless Pursuit

  • Cooldown: 22/20/18/16/14 seconds ⇒ 19/17.75/16.5/15.25/14 seconds


Q damage increased. R now reveals the target upon initial cast.

Mordekaiser isn't performing particularly well at the moment, so we're taking a look under his rusty metal hood. First, a quality of life change to prevent the fog of war from canceling his ultimate. Second, he's gettingan AP ratio buff to his Q with the goal of letting him build ability power in more of his games, instead of transitioning into tank items quite so quickly.

Q - Obliterate

  • Damage: 75/95/115/135/155 (+5-139 (based on level)) (+60% AP) ⇒ 75/95/115/135/155 (+5-139 (based on level)) (+70% AP)

R - Realm of Death

  • You Can Run…: Casting Realm of Death will now reveal the target upon starting the cast. This means that walking into a brush while Mordekaiser is casting his R will no longer cancel the spell. Note: The target will not be revealed for the entire duration of the spell, so you can still hide on bush if one comes with you to the Realm.


Base mana and mana growth increased.

Qiyana is a very high-skill-cap champion who only performs above average in very high-skill brackets. We don't expect to truly change that fact, but we'd still like to make her a little more forgiving to play. We noticed that she's a pretty frequent Manamune purchaser, so with these changes we'd like for you to have your cake and eat it too. If you don't buy Manamune, you have more mana to play with, and thus, don't need Tear as badly. However, if you do buy Manamune, having more total mana means more bonus AD and ability damage. So everyone wins! Except maybe her opponents. They might lose.

Base Stats

  • Base Mana: 325 ⇒ 375
  • Mana Growth: 50 ⇒ 60


Ranged Q now also resets Talon's attack timer.

Consistency is key.

Q - Noxian Diplomacy

  • Quality of Life Change: When cast at range, Q will now reset Talon's attack timer. (Note: this has been updated to match the functionality of his Q when cast at melee range.)


W and E Bugfixes

As part of this patch we had planned to do some follow up work to Vel'Koz but the changes weren't quite ready to ship. Part of those changes were bug fixes which were ready, so instead of waiting to patch in both at the same time we'll be patching the bug fixes a bit earlier.

W - Void Rift

  • Fixed a bug where the first half of the rift would fizzle if Vel'Koz died directly after casting.

E - Tectonic Disruption

  • Fixed a bug where the spell would fizzle out when V'K flashes or is knocked back at max range.
  • Tectonic Disruption's missile will now spawn at Vel'koz's original location if he flashes or is knocked back during the cast.


AD growth increased. W damage increased.

Zeri hasn't been zipping and zapping around like she used to and her battery power level is low, so we're giving her a small damage buff with the goal to amp her up ever so slightly.

Base Stats

  • AD Growth: 1.3 ⇒ 2

W - Ultrashock Laser

  • Damage: 20/60/100/140/180 (+130% AD) (+25% AP) ⇒ 30/70/110/150/190 (+130% AD) (+25% AP)

Arena Returns

Hey Gladiators! We're incredibly excited for you to see all the new items, augments, and balance updates we've been working on. There are a lot of changes to cover! You can find the nitty gritty details below, but if you want to get straight to the action, here is a quick summary of all the biggest things to look out for in the Rings of Wrath!
  • A huge amount of class and individual champion balance changes.
  • Hexgates have been added to all four Arenas!
  • Death is not the end! After a delay, you can revive your dead teammate by standing on their body!
  • We've removed the Naafiri, Samira, Shaco, Viego, Lux, Evelynn, and Jhin cameos, and we've added Sylas and Thresh cameos!
  • 4 new items!
  • 60 new Augments!

Due to the large amount of balance adjustments being made this patch change lists will only contain the numbers being changed and not the entire equation as per usual.

Gameplay Updates

  • Hexgates have been added to each of the 4 Rings of Wrath. They work just like they do on Hextech Rift and Howling Abyss and have a 7 second cooldown.

Downed State/Reviving
  • When a champion dies for the first time each round, they become downed for 11-8 seconds (based on round number), after which they become revivable. If an ally stands near a revivable ally for 3 seconds, they are resurrected and healed by their ally for 150+75 per level.
  • Revive duration is cumulative. If you spend 1 second near your Downed ally, then leave and come back, they will only take 2 seconds to Revive.
  • Revive duration is decreased based on the reviver’s Heal/Shield Power, and also decreased based on how much less team health the reviver has than the enemy team.
  • When you are revived, you become Invulnerable, Untargetable, and unable to attack/cast for 0.75 seconds. You will also gain 30% damage reduction, 75% Move Speed, and 50% Tenacity decaying over 3 seconds (or 2.25 seconds after the invulnerability ends).
  • In order to revive an ally, the ally must not be reviving with another effect or ability such as Zilean’s R, Zac’s Passive, or Guardian Angel.

  • The following Cameos have been removed: Naafiri. Samira, Shaco, Viego, Lux, Evelynn, and Jhin
  • The following Cameos have been added: Sylas (At the start of the round, Sylas replaces Summoner Flee with a one-use random Ultimate) and Thresh (Thresh will occasionally throw out a Lantern. The Lantern continuously Shields and can be selected to be pulled to Thresh).

New Items
  • Sword of the Blossoming Dawn: 40 Ability Power, 200 Health, 15% Heal and Shield Power, 15 Ability Haste. Passive Effervescence: Gain 1.2% Attack Speed for every 1% Heal and Shield Power you have. Passive Peppermint: On-Hit, heal the lowest health ally champion near you for 15-45 (+10% bonus AD) (+7% AP)
  • Perplexity: 70 Ability Power, 8% Move Speed, 22% Armor Penetration, 30% Magic Penetration. Passive Giant Slayer: Deal up to 22% bonus damage against champions with greater maximum Health than you.
  • Hellfire Hatchet: 40 Attack Damage, 12 Lethality, 15% Omnivamp. Passive Char: On-Hit or damaging an enemy with an active ability, heal for 2% of the Target's Current Health and apply 1 stack of Burn that deals 12% bonus AD (+10% AP) (+2% Missing Health) physical damage per second for 4 seconds.
  • Wordless Promise: 60 Ability Power, 15% Heal and Shield Power, 25 Ability Haste. Active - Promise: Make a Promise to an ally (90 second Cooldown). Passive Promise: Gain 20% of your Promised ally's Ability Power, and grant your Promised ally 20% of your Ability Haste.

Augment Updates
  • Once two champions possess the same Augment, that Augment is removed from the pool.
  • 60 Augments have been added to the Augment Pool! While we could share them all here, it’s more fun to enjoy exploring and experiencing them live. GLHF!

Queue Changes

  • Maximum Party Size: 2 players ⇒ 4 players (Note: when queuing with 3 players the party will be given the option to select who will be matched with a random player.)
  • Rating Restrictions: Players with a Gladiator rating can only queue with other Gladiator rated players ⇒ Players with an 8,100 rating or higher can only queue with 1 other player, and players must be within 1,000 rating of one another to queue together
  • Private Matchmaking: A full party of 8 players can queue together for an unrated game. There are no rating restrictions in private matches.

Rating System Changes

  • Arena ratings from the initial launch have been reset, and all players will begin in Wood Tier with a 500 rating.
  • Gold Tier Rating: 3200 ⇒ 3300
  • Gladiator Tier Rating: 3800 ⇒ 4000

Patch 13.23 notes

It’s patch 13.23, bee-lieve it!

In this week’s patch we’re focusing on addressing a few outliers and refining changes made in a few of the last patches, like those to K’Sante. We’re focusing more and more on getting the 2024 changes polished and ready for 14.1, so be aware that this patch and 13.24 may be a bit smaller and less complex than usual as 14.1 will undoubtedly shake things up!

In other news, we have some un-bee-lievably adorable Bee skins coming out this patch, a round of Nexus Blitz and ARAM balance adjustments, and last but certainly not least, this is the patch the Riot ID changes go into effect. We’ve made a few changes so make sure you check those out down below.

TFT has a new set launching this patch that has you mix your own track by combining different bands (traits) on your board! Read all about The Remix Rumble in the TFT patch notes here!

Patch Highlights

Beezcrank, King Beegar, and Bee’Koz will be available on November 22, 2023 at 21:00 UTC.

Riot ID Change

On November 20, 2023, we phased out the usage of “Summoner Names” and moved all players exclusively to Riot IDs to create a more unified experience across all our games. Read more about this change here.

We’ve made updates to the transition from Summoner Names to Riot IDs. You’ll now be able to change your name for free every 90 days. This change went into place on November 20, and everyone has been granted a free name change, if they’d like to use it. You can also read more about it here.



W damage decreased, soldiers now apply on-hit effects on their primary target.

Azir's lack of interaction with on-hit items has been a source of confusion and disappointment for players newer to this champion. This was recently highlighted again when Arena released, as there were several Augments that could be really cool for Azir but actually didn't work and baited players into taking them. After exploring allowing his soldiers to proc on-hit items we believe this a nice win for the Emperor of the Sands that will enhance his fantasy on both Summoner’s Rift and Arena! As this will increase his item scaling potential, we did need to pair it with some proactive nerfs so that he doesn’t go too crazy with this newfound power.

W - Arise!

  • Magic Damage: 2-92 (levels 10-18) (+50/67/84/101/118) (+60% AP) ⇒ 2-77 (levels 10-18) (+50/65/80/95/110) (+55% AP)
  • Magic Damage: W Attacks on the primary target (aka whichever target you clicked on) now trigger on-hit effects at 50% damage value (100% in Arena). This includes on-attack effects such as Rageblade's Phantom Hit, Runaan's Hurricane, and Kraken Slayer.


Base health decreased. W Snack Attack damage decreased.

Despite the nerfs, Briar keeps performing better patch over patch as players continue to learn and master her. So we're back to tap her power down in a way that will leave her less oppressive than before. With these changes we're continuing our attempt to close the gap between lethality and fighter builds. Lower health means she'll have to be more reliant on bonus health from other sources, and lower burst damage decreases lethality's relative value in favor of longer fighter patterns.

Base Stats

  • Base Health: 610 ⇒ 590

W - Snack Attack

  • Bonus Physical Damage: 5/20/35/50/65 (+ 5% total AD) (+ 10% (+3.5% per 100 bonus AD) of the target's missing health) ⇒ 5/20/35/50/65 (+ 5% total AD) (+ 9% (+2.5% per 100 bonus AD) of the target's missing health)


R quality of life change.


R - Whirling Death

  • QoL Adjustment: Draven R now returns to his body after striking a champion while he's dead.


Passive bonus movement speed adjusted. W cooldown decreased, targeting adjusted. R cooldown decreased.

Though there's some room for players to optimize Janna further (notably switching back to Aery now that Howling Gale spam is weaker), she has wound up in a weaker spot than before 13.22's kit update. We're giving her back some power to make sure she feels good to play at all points in the game. One notable factor is that she's performing much worse in the early game than she used to, so we're attempting to specifically help her early power with these changes.

The change to Zephyr's range should be a buff overall. It will now perfectly match her attack range, which is almost identical against small targets but meaningfully easier to wield against larger champions like Cho'Gath.

Passive - Tailwind

  • Bonus Movement Speed Scaling: 20/25/30/35% ⇒ 30%

W - Zephyr

  • Cooldown: 9/8.5/8/7.5/7 seconds ⇒ 8/7.5/7/6.5/6 seconds
  • Targeting: 650 range, center to center ⇒ 550 range, edge to edge (Note: this should make W better against large targets while being neutral against smaller targets.)

R - Monsoon

  • Cooldown: 150/135/120 seconds ⇒ 130/115/100 seconds

Jarvan IV

Q cooldown increased.

Jarvan IV has been very prominent in solo queue with solid pick, ban, and win rates. He currently accesses a large amount of haste through his build, which is leading to oppressive Q-E uptime. To reduce this particular strength, we’re increasing the cooldown on his Q which should still be accessible once you’ve built some Ability Haste, but will not be quite as oppressive as it is now.

Q - Dragon Strike

  • Cooldown: 10/9/8/7/6 seconds ⇒ 10/9.5/9/8.5/8 seconds


Q mana cost increased, base damage decreased. W bugfix. E shield decreased. R passive bonus attack damage adjusted, bonus on cast decreased.

K'Sante's kit update back in 13.20 has moved him in the direction that we want with more room for opponents to counterplay. However, we've still been trying to land his tuning to ensure he has a proper spread of strong and weak matchups. The goals with this patch are to ensure that K'Sante has real difficulty in bad matchups. A weaker shield, costlier Q, and especially reduced damage at his level 6 power spike should ensure strong 1v1 laners can excel against him. He's still meant to be a strongly-scaling, sometimes-warden, sometimes-skirmisher and we'll continue to re-tune him as necessary to ensure he's a high-skill champion worth mastering, without easily dominating his opposition.

Q - Ntofo Strikes

  • Mana Cost: 15 Mana ⇒ 28/26/24/22/20 Mana
  • Damage: 30/60/90/120/150 (+40% AD) (+30% bonus armor) (+30% bonus magic resistance) ⇒ 30/55/80/105/130 (+40% AD) (+30% bonus armor) (+30% bonus magic resistance)

W - Path Maker

  • Bugfix: Fixed a bug that allowed K'Sante to launch Path Maker's dash early. Now if Path Maker's channel is ended prematurely, the channel will simply end without a dash.

E - Footwork

  • Shield: 45/65/85/105/125 (+15% bonus health) ⇒ 50/90/130/170/210 (+10% bonus health)

R - All Out

  • Passive Bonus Damage: 45/60/75% (levels 6/11/16) ⇒ 30-78% (levels 6-18, scaling linearly)
  • Bonus Attack Damage: 15/30/45 (+25% bonus armor) (+25% bonus magic resistance) ⇒ 10/25/40 (+25% bonus armor) (+25% bonus magic resistance)


Passive packmate damage decreased. E base damage decreased.

Naafiri was created with the goal of being a relatively easy-to-play assassin that doesn’t have a lot of pressure to end games quickly as she was specifically geared toward average-skill games. She's definitely succeeding at being one of the more straightforward assassins with a good late game to boot. However, she's just winning too many games right now, so we're taking aim at a nerf. In an effort to retain as much agency over the game as possible, we're preserving her gold scaling and instead taking down her base damage to ensure that she must perform well to continue securing takedowns.

Passive - We Are More

  • Packmate Attack Damage: 6-29.8 (based on level) (+4.5% bonus AD) ⇒ 5-25 (based on level) (+4.5% bonus AD)

E - Eviscerate

  • Flurry Damage: 65/100/135/170/205 (+ 80% bonus AD) ⇒ 60/90/120/150/180 (+ 80% bonus AD)
  • Maximum Eviscerate Damage: 100/150/200/250/300 (+ 130% bonus AD) ⇒ 95/140/185/230/275 (+ 130% bonus AD)


Q AD scaling increased. R AD scaling increased.

The anti-snowballing update of 13.20 hurt Riven a bit as she's often reliant on snowballing an early lead. While she's not strictly weak in the hands of her most practiced players, we'd like to give her a small boost in power to make that dedication pay off a little harder.

Q - Broken Wings

  • Damage: 15/35/55/75/95 (+45/50/55/60/65% AD) ⇒ 15/35/55/75/95 (+50/55/60/65/70% AD)

R - Blade of the Exile

  • Bonus Attack Damage: 20% ⇒ 25%


AD growth increased. Q mana cost decreased.

Trundle hasn’t been performing well as a top laner, which means he needs a bit of help. We’re looking to decrease his Q mana cost, as he relies on this ability to trade and clear waves which should help out Trundle top. We’re also buffing his AD growth as this should increase his scaling and Trinity Force synergy.

Base Stats

  • Attack Damage Growth: 3 ⇒ 4

Q - Chomp

  • Mana Cost: 30 ⇒ 20


Passive damage increased.

Vel'Koz is currently fairly weak as both a support and mid laner and could use a little more power. In this patch we’ll be buffing his passive damage, as there's a reasonable amount of interesting gameplay in triggering it and to make this proc more rewarding for Vel'Koz players. While this will also increase his power during R, he only procs his passive once per cast, which creates more of a reward for the risk of immobilizing Vel’Koz.

Passive - Organic Deconstruction

  • Third Stack Damage: 33-169 (based on level) (+50% AP) ⇒ 35-180 (based on level) (+60% AP)


Base AD increased. Q damage decreased. W cooldown increased early, mana cost increased.

Our armor nerf from last patch ended up not being as meaningful as we had hoped due to how far back Ziggs can play, so we need to nerf him again as he's performing quite well in solo queue. Our main goal is to reduce how oppressive his early game is by nerfing the base damage on his Q since it now has a more reliable hitbox. We’re also including a nerf to his W uptime, as this is a strong engage/disengage tool that can also be used for waveclear since it has a relatively low cost.

Base Stats

  • Base Attack Damage: 54 ⇒ 55

Q - Bouncing Bomb

  • Magic Damage: 95/145/195/245/295 (+65% AP) ⇒ 85/135/185/235/285 (+65% AP)

W - Satchel Charge

  • Cooldown: 20/18/16/14/12 seconds ⇒ 24/21/18/15/12 seconds
  • Mana Cost: 65 ⇒ 80

Turret Gold Adjustments


In this patch we’ll be adjusting turret gold rewards in an effort to make split pushing a more satisfying path to power. Inner turrets will have 125 gold shifted from global into local gold, which will raise the individual power level of anyone brave enough to push into enemy territory to take them down. We're also shifting and raising the value of Inhibitor turrets in order to make them a much more valuable objective overall. Currently it isn’t worth risking taking down an Inhibitor turret while splitting so we'd like to make this fairly dangerous objective more worthwhile.

Statistically, top laners earn the most turret gold of any role in the game in every skill bracket, so a relative increase in local turret value should disproportionately help top laners convert their strength into more power and thus increase their agency over the game as a whole.

Also, did you know turrets have items in their inventory that explain some of their various rules? They've received a small clarity and content pass to be a bit more informative and easier to read.


  • Mid Lane Local Gold: 300 ⇒ 425
  • Side Lane Local Gold: 550 ⇒ 675
  • Global Gold: 250 ⇒ 125
  • Total Gold Value: 550/800 (unchanged)


  • Local Gold: 50 ⇒ 375
  • Global Gold: 250 ⇒ 125
  • Total Gold Value: 300 ⇒ 500


  • Gold reward tooltips updated to show both local and global turret gold.
  • Updated formatting of other turret item tooltips.

ARAM Adjustments


  • Kassadin: Damage Taken: 100% ⇒ 95%
  • Nilah: Healing Done: 90% ⇒ 100%
  • Xayah: Damage Dealt: 100% ⇒ 105%


  • K’Sante: Damage Taken: 95% ⇒ 100%
  • Rumble: Damage Taken: 95% ⇒ 100%
  • Tahm Kench: Damage Taken: 95% ⇒ 100%


  • Ashe: W Cooldown: 18/14.5/11/7.5/4 seconds ⇒ 18 seconds at all levels; R Cooldown: 100/80/60 ⇒ 110/90/70; Ability Haste: -30 ⇒ 0

Nexus Blitz Adjustments


With their new jungle pet buddies, junglers have been outpacing their laning counterparts, making their ganks a little too potent in the early game. We're taking a pass at monster health to slow down their clears a bit, especially those with strong AoE clears.
  • Rift Scuttler Health: 3400-11560 ⇒ 3500-11900
  • Medium Krugs Health: 900-2115 ⇒ 750-1763
  • Sir Gromp Health: 2400-5640 ⇒ 2600-6110
  • Red Brambleback Health: 4600-12420 ⇒ 5000-13500
  • Blue Sentinel Health: 3500-9450 ⇒ 3750-10125
  • Rift Herald Health: 8400-16800 ⇒ 9000-18000


  • Corki: Damage Dealt: 100% ⇒ 105%
  • Hecarim: Damage Taken: 100% ⇒ 95%
  • Riven: Damage Dealt: 100% ⇒ 105%
  • Pyke: Damage Dealt: 100% ⇒ 105%
  • Camille: Damage Taken: 100% ⇒ 95%


  • Singed: Damage Dealt: 100% ⇒ 95%
  • Maokai: Damage Dealt: 100% ⇒ 95%
  • Sett: Damage Dealt: 100% ⇒ 95%
  • Teemo: Damage Dealt: 95% ⇒ 90%
