Incoming Changes on the PBE - Nerfs + New Item Released

Apologies for the lack in updates recently, I've been completely swamped with work! These updates are far too interesting to pass up though! The new PBE Varus patch has included some major changes including a massive overhaul on Ryze's abilities and the introduction of a new item. Big thanks to RoG for compiling the unofficial notes!

Summary: Lots of changes in store for the next patch, the largest of which appear to be the Ryze changes and the Will of the Ancients recipe cost increase. Kog'maw and Warwick are being nerfed and many other heroes are being tweaked slightly.

The Kog and Warwick nerfs were definitely warranted, as well as the Talon buff. The Ryze tweak will bring him more in line with current level burst casters, and make him less late-game reliant (and also less monstrous). 

Super random health buff on Singed.

The new item (Athene's Unholy Grail) is interesting, and definitely comes in line with the blue buff nerf. I'm not sure if it'll be worth sacrificing your deathcap for the item on most heroes though, since it doesn't give any health or armor.

First time to Nerfplz.Lol or not sure where to find everything? Try the Site Map


  1. Eh, so much there isn't accurate (not your fault, people just copy and paste), like for example:

    "Rake Mana Cost reduced: 60/65/70/75/80 Mana, to 20/35/50/65/80 Mana."

    It's actually 50 now on rank 1.

  2. Thanks for the update Falleth :) Like I wrote in the first header, I got the info from RoG haha.

    Do you know the new numbers though? Is it 50/50/50/65/80? I don't have the PBE client installed on this computer.

  3. Wow....I am really excited for all the AP item changes. Interested to see how it goes.

  4. It actually scales 50/55/60/65/70.

  5. The new item is interesting, the buff after a kill will work on kassadin for example i think..
    And talon buff? and not a bit buff, this one is important, looks like a signal to me to buy him (?) I have 6500 ip and was between: caitlyn (i am pretty good ranged ad, caitlyn is stomper), talon (counter mid, and also there are really nice guides)

  6. Sorry about that Durem, it appears the info on RoG was incorrectly posted, and as Falleth pointed out it's actually 50/55/60/65/70, which is only a 10 mana decrease rather than a 40 mana decrease. The numbers did seem a little extreme at first!

  7. Talon's definitely still a very strong mid laner though, and infinitely more so with a good Kennen or Vladimir top lane so that you can get all the blues.

  8. fuck randuins nerf >.>

  9. Oh no problem, it's cool, thought it was the real buff xD...
    It still being a buff so no problem... Talon here i go!
    However i can play caitlyn on free weeks, :D talon isn't that common

  10. Durem, FYI, in latest PBE patch Talon mana costs buffs were reverted.
