Patch Notes 11.13
Passive bonus damage and lethality increased.
PASSIVE - THE HITMAN AND THE SEER
BONUS DAMAGE 4/8/12/16/20/24 (Q rank 1-5) ⇒ 5/10/15/20/25/30 (Q rank 1-5)
LETHALITY 3.5/7/10.5/14/17.5/21 (E rank 1-5) ⇒ 4.5/9/13.5/18/22.5/27 (E rank 1-5)
Another round of buffs to Aphelios. Bonus damage is nice and will help him out in the early game but the extra lethality he is getting won’t be kicking in until the late game. He’s in an okay spot in soloq but he’ll continue struggling in pro play.
W VFX now revealed when in terrain.
W - BLADE’S REACH
NEWVFX Blade’s Reach VFX is now revealed when cast within terrain towards enemy champions.
Kayn has been one of the champions on the rise over the past few patches. Not being able to see his W when cast from terrain was tough to deal with. This nerf will make it much easier to react to Kayn’s damage.
E base damage decreased later.
E - TEMPEST
Nerf to the lane Lee Sin. It will be felt massively since it’s the main spell Lee uses in the lane.
Base health growth increased. Mana and mana growth rounded up.
HEALTH GROWTH 93 ⇒ 100
MANA 7.47 ⇒ 7.5
MANA GROWTH 0.58 ⇒ 0.6
Olaf was running rampant early in the season before falling out of the meta. This change won’t be noticeable at all.
E base shield strength reduced.
E - VALOR
BASE SHIELD STRENGTH 95/125/155/185/215 ⇒ 85/115/145/175/205
Losing 10 shield is not going to affect Riven greatly. Don’t expect her to be any weaker than she is now.
W cooldown increased early and now scales; bonus movement speed decreased.
W - SCRAP SHIELD
COOLDOWN 6 seconds ⇒ 7/6.75/6.5/6.25/6 seconds
BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED 15/20/25/30/35% ⇒ 10/15/20/25/30%
Riot is trying to nerf Rumble’s early game by making him exit the jungle with less HP. He might not be able to take every duel at lvl 3 like he was before but he’s still one of the strongest junglers in the game.
Devour and R swapped and reworked. Passive bonus damage decreased. Q now heals, applies his passive, and scales with his size. E shield duration increased; healing over time increased but takes longer to come into effect. And new VFX all around!
HEALTH 600 ⇒ 570
HEALTH GROWTH 100 ⇒ 95
MANA GROWTH 40 ⇒ 50
ARMOR 47 ⇒ 42
MAGIC RESIST 32.1 ⇒ 32
PASSIVE - AN ACQUIRED TASTE
BONUS DAMAGE 4% of maximum health ⇒ 2.5% of maximum health
Q - TONGUE LASH
NEWSTUNNER? I HARDLY KNOW HER Tahm Kench can now cast R - Devour during Tongue Lash to swallow champions stunned by Tongue Lash
NEWTHAT’S ONE HEAL OF A TONGUE Tongue Lash now heals for 6/7/8/9/10% of his missing health when an enemy champion is struck
NEWA FISH OF MANY TASTES Tongue Lash now applies a stack of Passive - An Acquired Taste to the enemy champions it hits
SLOW 30/40/50/60/70% ⇒ 40%
SLOW DURATION 3 seconds ⇒ 2 seconds
COOLDOWN 5 seconds ⇒ 7/6.5/6/5.5/5 seconds
COST 50 mana ⇒ 50/46/42/38/34 mana
NEWHARDER BETTER FASTER STRONGER Tongue Lash’s range and missile speed now scales up with Tahm Kench’s size
W - ABYSSAL DIVE
NEWWHAC-A-FISH Tahm Kench channels for 1.35 seconds, dives for 0.15 seconds, then appears at the targeted area, dealing 100/135/170/205/240 (+100% AP) damage and knocking up enemies for 1 second. Hitting an enemy champion refunds 30% of its cooldown and mana cost. Tahm Kench can take Devoured allies along for the ride (allies can always eject before the channel finishes). Enemies cannot see where Tahm Kench is headed until 0.75 seconds into the channel.
COOLDOWN 24/23/22/21/20 seconds ⇒ 21/20/19/18/17 seconds
COST 60/75/90/105/120 mana
E - THICK SKIN
SHIELD DURATION 2 seconds ⇒ 2.5 seconds
GREY HEALTH HEALING OVER TIME Slightly increased to 10% maximum health per quarter second
TIME BEFORE GREY HEALTH HEALING 2.5 seconds of not taking damage ⇒ 4 seconds of not taking damage
R - DEVOUR
NEWHOOK, LINE, AND DINNER Tahm Kench swallows the target champion for up to 3 seconds. If the target champion is an enemy, they must have 3 stacks of Passive - An Acquired Taste and take 100/250/400 +15% (+5% per 100 AP) maximum health as magic damage. Tahm Kench is also grounded and slowed by 40% movement speed. If the target champion is an ally, they are granted a 300/450/600 (+100% AP) shield that lasts for 2.5 seconds after Devour ends. Tahm Kench is also grounded and slowed by 40/25/10% movement speed but can still cast W - Abyssal Dive. Tahm Kench’s allies can see when Devour is available on his health bar (enemies cannot).
Tahm Kench was one of the most boring supports to watch in Pro play and he was rarely seen in SoloQ. With the current changes, his previous ultimate that allowed him to teleport around the map is now on his W but it has a shorter range. Furthermore, he’s able to eat allies, or enemies using his R. It has a pretty big cooldown (90 seconds on level 6). On the other hand, his new W knocks up enemies so if he stays as a support, he’ll have a way to engage on enemies. Something that he didn’t have before.
Q healing from minions decreased. E base bonus movement speed, missile speed and zone length increased.
Q - BLADE OF THE RUINED KING
HEALING FROM MINIONS 100% ⇒ 50%
E - HARROWED PATH
BASE BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED 20/22.5/25/27.5/30% ⇒ 25/27.5/30/32.5/35%
MISSILE SPEED 1000 ⇒ 1200
MISSILE ZONE LENGTH 700 ⇒ 775
Lane Viego is getting nerfed while jungle one is getting a buff. Having less healing on his Q will make his laning phase much harder. Luckily his E got buffed and now gives more movement speed so we might see him in the jungle more often.
Q base damage per feather-blade and maximum total damage increased.
Q - DOUBLE DAGGERS
BASE DAMAGE PER FEATHER-BLADE 45/65/85/105/125 ⇒ 50/75/100/125/150
BASE MAXIMUM TOTAL DAMAGE 90/130/170/210/250 ⇒ 100/150/200/250/300
With Rakan being nowhere in terms of support strength this season, Xayah has been struggling as well. Q buffs will improve her wave clear as well as poke. It’ll be interesting to see if she makes a return to the meta considering there is no big power difference between ad carries at the moment.
TOTAL COST 2500 gold
BUILD PATH Giant’s Belt + Kindlegem + 800 gold
ABILITY HASTE 20
VOW (ACTIVE) Choose a Nemesis to start building a Vendetta over 60 seconds. Has global range, must be used out of combat, and can be used while dead (90 second cooldown).
VENDETTA Take 1% reduced damage from your Nemesis per Vendetta stack. This damage reduction starts at 0% and stacks up to 30% over 60 seconds.
VENGEANCE At max stacks, your Nemesis has 20% reduced tenacity while near you.
An item with no defensive stats besides HP is something no one usually wants (as seen with Warmog's Armor). But, 30% damage reduction is amazing. I can see it being bought when enemy has only one strong champion.
BUILD PATH Pickaxe + Phage + 825 gold
ATTACK DAMAGE 50
HEALTH REGEN 150%
PASSIVE While no allied champions are nearby, gain 20-45 armor and magic resist (level 9-18) and deal 20% increased damage to towers. Large minions nearby also gain 60-135 armor and magic resist and deal 200% increased damage to towers.
A new item for top lane split pushers. The best users for it are going to be Jax, Fiora, and Nasus. Since it’s a legendary item it can be combined with Trinity Force for even more tower damage.
HEALTH 200 ⇒ 400
ATTACK DAMAGE 45 ⇒ 40
REMOVEDDASH Halting Slash no longer lets the user dash 300 units
NEWSLASHER AND PRANCER Halting Slash can now be cast while moving
HALTING SLASH DAMAGE 75% AD ⇒ 100% AD
SLOW 40%, decaying over 2 seconds ⇒ 90%, decaying to 40% over 3 seconds
COOLDOWN 20 seconds ⇒ 15 seconds
HEROIC GAIT BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED 30 ⇒ 20
MYTHIC PASSIVE BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED 3% ⇒ 2%
DREAMSHATTER (ORNN’S UPGRADE) HEALTH 300 ⇒ 500
DREAMSHATTER (ORNN’S UPGRADE) ATTACK DAMAGE 55 ⇒ 50
Stridebreaker changes result in two things. Champions with no gap closer will have to look for another Mythic item. On the other hand, it’ll allow champions that can get close to you to stick to you much easier. 90% slow is tremendous and we might see nerfs coming to it in the future.
MYTHIC PASSIVE BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED 3% ⇒ 2%
TYPHOON (ORNN’S UPGRADE) MYTHIC PASSIVE BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED 3% ⇒ 2%
Galeforce is primarily bought because it gives champions the ability to dash. Granting less movement speed might be noticeable, but most importantly it will not change much in term of items strength.
MOVEMENT SPEED 10% ⇒ 8%
ABILITY POWER 70 ⇒ 75
The majority of Lich Bane users are assassins with many dashes. Less movement speed will not affect them.
ABILITY POWER 75 ⇒ 80
SPELLDANCE BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED 10-30 (level 1-18) ⇒ 20
Quite a big nerf considering by the time you buy Cosmic Drive you are usually above level 10 and are getting more than 20 movement speed.
HEALTH 400 ⇒ 450
RAGE BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED PER STACK OF CARVE 5, up to 30 ⇒ 3, up to 18
Dead Man’s Plate
SHIPWRECKER BUILDUP DURATION 8 seconds ⇒ 4 seconds
SHIPWRECKED MAX BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED 60 ⇒ 40
SHIPWRECKED ON-HIT BONUS DAMAGE 1 magic damage per stack, up to 100 ⇒ 1 physical damage per stack (+100% base AD), up to 40
We might see Darius and Garen shift away from this item and look for something better. Losing 20 movement speed is substantial to such champions.
ATTACK DAMAGE 30 ⇒ 35
THREEFOLD STRIKE BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED 25 ⇒ 20
INFINITY FORCE (ORNN’S UPGRADE) ATTACK DAMAGE 40 ⇒ 45
DEFY HEAL 10% of your maximum health ⇒ 15% of your maximum health
REMOVEDDEATH’S WALK Champion takedowns no longer grant 30% bonus movement speed for 2 seconds
Having more survivability might make up for the fact the item is losing a lot of mobility. As it was underperforming in the past it still might see action only sometimes.
INSPIRE BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED 60%, decaying to 30% over 2 seconds ⇒ 30%
SHURELYA'S REQUIEM (ORNN’S UPGRADE) INSPIRE BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED 60%, decaying to 30% over 2 seconds ⇒ 30%
Shurelya's is first and foremost built because it grants movement speed both to the enchanter, and the champion they’re shielding. But with this nerf and Moonstone Renewer getting buffed several patches in the row, enchanters might drop Shurelya entirely.
COOLDOWN 60 seconds ⇒ 90 seconds
LETHALITY 21 ⇒ 18
SANDSWIPE TARGETING Any enemy unit ⇒ Enemy champions
SANDSHRIKE’S CLAW (ORNN’S UPGRADE) LETHALITY 29 ⇒ 26
It’s an indirect nerf to Zed and Talon. Now they’ll have to be more careful when they’re using it. Also, it grants less lethality so it will hurt Varus as well.
COMBINE COST 1200 gold ⇒ 1000 gold
COMBINE COST 1250 gold ⇒ 1050 gold
COMBINE COST 450 gold ⇒ 250 gold
Riot is finally taking steps into buffing mages. They have been underperforming for the whole season. One of the main reasons for it was the huge amount of gold you had to save just to finish your mythic item. With them being cheaper now they might start getting back into the meta slowly.
STARLIT GRACE HEAL AND SHIELD POWER 6% per stack (max 30%) ⇒ 7% per stack (max 35%)
Possibly the best support item for enchanters in the game at the moment. Pick up Seraphine and get those easy wins!
SPELLBLADE EMPOWERED ON-HIT DAMAGE 12% of target’s maximum health ⇒ 12% melee || 9% ranged of target’s maximum health
With this change, ranged champions are going to deal less damage. Most importantly it’s a nerf to Ezreal who has been running rampant in the SoloQ recently.
BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED 5%/20%/35% for 2 seconds ⇒ 5%/20%/25% for 2 seconds
Straight up nerf. It was rarely picked in the past and now we can expect all ADC's to switch to Inspiration tree if they haven’t already. Mid laners will go for manaflow band instead.
GRANTED SIGHT DURATION 60 seconds ⇒ 90 seconds
ENEMY REVEAL DURATION 4 seconds ⇒ 6 seconds
This rune is used rarely due to the the fact it’s hard to use. Buffing its numbers is nice but it doesn’t fix its foundational problem.
Inner turrets in side lanes (top and bottom) now grant an additional 250 local gold
All turret inventories now show how much local gold they give once destroyed
Earlier we talked how split pushers are getting buffed with introduction of Hullbreaker. Well, now they’ll also be earning more gold by breaking towers.
DAMAGE TO MINIONS 900 true damage ⇒ 500 (+10% of target’s max health) true damage
DAMAGE TO MINIONS 900 true damage ⇒ 500 (+10% of target’s max health) true damage
The damage stays the same for monsters. It will only deal less damage to minions and pets (such as Tibbers).
