Official Patch 10.5 Notes Released!

Patch 10.5 notes


This patch, we're addressing the "zero-CS-top-lane" problem in a more systematic way to squash similar situations in the future. Sona and Soraka were just the tip of the iceberg of the hypothetical "zero-CS-top-lane" playstyle, so we're making larger changes to the top lane that should remove such strategies from showing up in the future while also allowing games to be carried by those in that lane. Current pro play mainstays Ornn and Sett are also seeing some nerfs so that we're not constantly seeing folks getting rammed down and thrown around by these beefy dudes. We also have a second round of jungle champion changes to help slightly widen that pool.

We also got some ARAM balance changes, as well as the initial release of Eternals! Like other features and content outside of Summoner's Rift, these types of content might not be for you and that's okay. So just do you. Play ARAM, try out Eternals, purchase skins-- or don't!

Patch Highlights

Blackfrost Rek'Sai, Blackfrost Alistar, and Blackfrost Renekton will be available on March 5, 2020



Base health increased. Passive stack gain no longer has a cooldown after Alistar roars.
Moo cow needs more milk.

Base Stats

HEALTH 575  600

Passive - Triumphant Roar

STACK COOLDOWN Once Triumph stacks are consumed, Alistar can gain new stacks after a 3-second cooldown  immediately (Triumphant Roar still can't proc more than once every 3 seconds)


R cooldown increased early.
We're pulling back on some of the power we gave him in 10.4.

R - Curse of the Sad Mummy

COOLDOWN 130/115/100 seconds  150/125/100 seconds


Passive chime damage decreased.
After a history of Journeying under the radar, Bard has to be pulled back a bit due to how much he's succeeding at high levels of play. We're slightly reducing the impact of the Meeps' sweet chime music.

Passive - Traveler's Call



Base armor decreased.
A small nerf since he just barely hit our triggers.

Base Stats

ARMOR 40  37


Base MR and MR growth increased. Q cost now flat; cooldown decreased.
Graves has been weak for higher tier play, and middling for everyone else. Giving him back some of the Magic Resist we pulled off his E, as well as a buff aimed to help both his jungle and laning.

Base Stats


Q - End of the Line

COST 60/65/70/75/80 mana  60 mana
COOLDOWN 13/12/11/10/9 seconds  12/11/10/9/8 seconds


Q AP ratio decreased; upgraded missiles increased. W base damage and AP ratio increased, tAD decreased; upgraded cooldown refund increased.
The goal of these changes are to power up Kai'Sa as she evolves, especially as she starts to specialize in either AP or AD. However, there should also be more of a trade-off based on that evolution

Q - Icathian Rain

DAMAGE RATIO 0.4 ability power  0.25 ability power
LIVING WEAPON UPGRADE 10 missiles  12 missiles

W - Void Seeker

DAMAGE 20/45/70/95/120 (+0.6 ability power)(+1.5 total attack damage)  30/55/80/105/130 (+0.7 ability power)(+1.3 total attack damage)
LIVING WEAPON UPGRADE 50% cooldown refunded against champions  70% cooldown refunded against champions


Passive orb gain increased. W slow increased.
Smoothing out Kayn's transformation rules so he's not punished due to confusion or complexity. We're adding a slight buff to his catching ability too to overall make him easier to succeed with.

Passive - The Darkin Scythe

ORB GAIN RATE Increases at 8 and 12 minutes  Increases constantly (every second) after 5 minutes, flattening out at 13 minutes

W - Blade's Reach



Q AP ratio increased.
We're putting some power back into Lissandra's (cold) bread and (frozen) butter ability, so enemies know they can't just eat them willy nilly.

Q - Ice Shard

DAMAGE RATIO 0.7 ability power  0.8 ability power


Base AS growth and ratio increased. E AP ratio increased. R shield increased.
Giving Neeko some buffs for any situation, no matter what shape she takes.

Base Stats


E - Tangle Barbs

DAMAGE RATIO 0.4 ability power  0.6 ability power

R - Pop Blossom

SHIELD 50/80/110 (+0.5 ability power)  75/100/125 (+0.75 ability power)


Passive empowered damage decreased; item auto-upgrade level increased; ally item upgrade available later.
We're lowering his damage a bit and reverting a prior buff that we had originally put in to ram him back into pro play. The ram's now a little too aggressive and butting heads way too often.

Passive - Living Forge

BRITTLE PROC DAMAGE 12-20.5% target's maximum health (level 1-18)  10-18% target's maximum health (level 1-18)
ALLY MASTERWORK UPGRADE AVAILABILITY Levels 13, 14, 15, 16  Levels 14, 15, 16, 17


Base AS ratio decreased.
Wasn't actually "ok." like we thought. Pulling back some of the power from 10.4's buffs.

Base Stats

ATTACK SPEED RATIO 0.656  0.625 (base attack speed unchanged)


Base armor, health regen, and health regen growth decreased. R slow duration decreased.
While he's mostly showing off in the top lane, Sett is also showstoppingly strong in the jungle. Taking some swings to reduce power in both places.

Base Stats

ARMOR 37  33

R - The Show Stopper

SLOW DURATION 1.5 seconds to target and all enemies in the impact area  1 second to target and all enemies in the impact area
ASSIST BUGFIX Sett properly gets Assist credit even when the target dies while suppressed


Q damage increased later. R minimum movement speed now scales.
Sivir is on the weaker side across all games, so we're buffing her.

Q - Boomerang Blade

DAMAGE PER PASS 35/55/75/95/115 (+0.7/0.8/0.9/1.0/1.1 total attack damage) (+0.5 ability power)  35/50/65/80/95 (+0.7/0.85/1.0/1.15/1.3 total attack damage) (+0.5 ability power)

R - On The Hunt



Base AD and AD growth increased. E self movement speed increased and now flat.
We're reverting the mid-patch 10.4 changes since we decided to go forward with changes to the Tribute support question line, including Spellthief's Edge, in this patch. All in all, that should bring her back to respectable levels in her main lane and keep her out of top lane for good.

Base Stats


E - Song of Celerity

SELF MOVEMENT SPEED 10/11/12/13/14%  20%

Out-of-Range Cast Changes

When you try to cast an ability outside its max range, one of two things will happen: Either you'll walk into range and then cast the ability, or the ability will automatically cast at max range in that direction. We're changing the three abilities below to all follow the 'cast at max range' behavior based on how we see players (especially newer players) try to use them. In Syndra's case, this specifically makes her Q->E combo easier to pull off.

While mains will need to relearn the feel for how these abilities cast at long ranges, our intent isn't to add or remove significant power. We'll follow up on these three if needed.

Abilities changed

  • Miss Fortune's E - Make it Rain
  • Syndra's Q - Dark Sphere
  • Varus's E - Hail of Arrows

Jungle Champions

Last patch's round of jungle champ pool changes went well—lots of players in the target skill range have been finding success trying the new picks out, without those picks also crushing the competition at higher parts of the ladder. Morde and Darius were the underperformers of the pack so we're giving them a bit more help. We're also adding Poppy to the mix: She's actually already a decently strong jungler in the hands of some players, so she just needs a slight bump.




DARKNESS RISE MAX DAMAGE TO MONSTERS 25-110 (lv 1-18)  28-164 (lv 1-18)


HAMMER SHOCK MAX HEALTH DAMAGE CAP VS NON-CHAMPS 40/60/80/100/120  50/80/110/140/170

Top Lane Significance


Turret plates grant more gold, take more damage from melee champions, and are more resilient to group pushes.
We're changing turret plating in a few ways toward the goal of making it a more appealing top-lane objective for solo melee pushers. Since plates take more damage from melee champs, most of the top lane roster will have an easier time downing them (and an easier time securing first turret gold as a result). Increasing Bulwark resistances means group pushes won't be as rewarding, with 'gank bot and set up for dragon' the most common group push case in lane phase. Higher gold value adds extra consequence to these changes. All said, the tradeoff for abandoning a lane and roaming will be literally more costly once 10.5 hits.

To ranged readers: The second and third lines even out to you dealing the same damage to plating as you did before. We just didn't want to say "turret plates take increased damage from melee champions".
newRANGED RESISTANCE Turret plates take 17% reduced damage from ranged champions
OUTER TURRET ARMOR & MR 40/80/120/160/200 (at 0-4 plates lost)  15/50/85/120/155 (at 0-4 plates lost)
BULWARK RESISTANCES 35 per nearby enemy champion past the second  45 per nearby enemy champion past the second

Blade of the Ruined King

Current health damage increased for melee champions.
Blade of the Ruined King has been out of fighter inventories for a while now. We're buffing it to be a luxury option for shredding through juggernauts and tanks.
UNIQUE PASSIVE Basic attacks deal bonus physical damage on hit equal to 8% target's current health  8% target's current health for ranged users, 12% target's current health for melee users
ORNN Change also applies to Might of the Ruined King

Ravenous Hydra

Lifesteal increased. Active area of effect increased, now occurs at your max attack range.
Increasing Ravenous Hydra's strength should open its appeal to more fighters and buff the ones who already pick it up. We're also making the Crescent active work as expected for those who have longer than 125 attack range.
LIFESTEAL 12%  18%
ACTIVE CENTER POINT 125 distance in front of you  At your basic attack range (up to 200 distance - sorry Rengar)

Titanic Hydra

Passive damage to targets in the cone increased.
We're buffing Titanic Hydra's health scaling to increase the threat it presents in HP-heavy builds.
PASSIVE DAMAGE TO PRIMARY TARGET 5 (+1% user's max health)  5 (+1.5% user's max health)
PASSIVE DAMAGE TO SECONDARY TARGETS 40 (+2.5% user's max health)  40 (+3% user's max health)


Spellthief's Edge

Tribute procs now require a nearby ally.
Removing support items from being used in solo lanes.
newPARTNER IN CRIME Tribute procs now require an ally champion (even dead ally champions) within 2000 range (also affects Frostfang)

Spectral Sickle

Tribute procs now require a nearby ally.
Removing support items from being used in solo lanes.
newPARTNER IN CRIME Tribute procs now require an ally (even dead ally champions) within 2000 range (also affects Harrowing Crescent)

Boots of Mobility

Cost increased.
Mobi's heavily increase the ability to snowball in higher ranked games, allowing very strong lanes to spread their leads easily and decreasing diversity in your shoe choices. We're making them a bit more of a premium boot to buy, instead of something you can easily get once you're in that position.
COST 900 gold  1000 gold

Boots of Swiftness

Movement speed increased.
Swifties are just not great right now, so we're helping it be more competitive.

ARAM Balance Changes

10.5 Buffs

Akali +18% damage dealt & -12% damage taken  +18% damage dealt & -15% damage taken

10.5 Nerfs

Alistar Normal  +5% damage taken
Yuumi +5% damage dealt  Normal
Zac +5% damage dealt  Normal

  • Champions who are basic attacking an enemy will no longer be able to follow them as they enter Fog of War
  • Quickly changing forms as DJ Sona will no longer lock her with Ethereal form's helm
