Leave a Comment


Buffs: Ezreal, Jinx, Karma, Mordekaiser, Riven, Singed, Shyvana, Sylas, Vladimir
Nerfs: Anivia, Cho'Gath, Elise, Ivern, Olaf, Pantheon, Rammus, Seraphine, Taliyah, Udyr
Tweaks: Gangplank, Rell



Q detonation damage decreased. R cooldown increased later.

Since her refresh in patch 10.25, Anivia's been leaving her enemies in the cold with high spell consistency and damage.

Q - Flash Frost

DETONATION DAMAGE 70/105/140/175/210 (+50% AP)  60/95/130/165/200 (+45% AP)

R - Glacial Storm

COOLDOWN 4/2.5/1 seconds  4/3/2 seconds


E base damage decreased later.

With the last round of tank item buffs, Cho's been feasting in top lane.

E - Vorpal Spikes

BASE DAMAGE 22/37/52/67/82  22/34/46/58/70


Q base damage decreased later. W active attack speed decreased later.

Elise has crept to the top of the jungle echelons despite some previous nerfs (see 11.2). We're squashing her down a bit to even out the playing field.

Q - Neurotoxin

BASE DAMAGE 40/75/110/145/180  40/70/100/130/160

W - Skittering Frenzy

ACTIVE ATTACK SPEED 60/80/100/120/140%  60/70/80/90/100%


Q damage ratio increased.

Ezreal hasn't been faring so well with the new item system. To give him more of a (mystic) shot, we're buffing his Q ratio to better synergize with Muramana, while also giving him more value when building heavy AD items like Hydra.

Q - Mystic Shot



Base health growth decreased. E shield decreased later.

While it's great to see Ivern wunder-ing around outside of his usual home, he's still too effective meandering around the jungle. We can't beat around the bush any longer-we're pulling back some of his safety and shielding power.

Base Stats


E - Triggerseed

SHIELD 80/115/150/185/220  80/110/140/170/200


Base health decreased. Q bonus range increased; Fishbones bonus attack speed penalty decreased. E cost increased; arm time decreased; max range cast adjusted.

The new item changes have not been kind to Jinx. We wanted to make some priority adjustments to the items in general first before tackling her, and now it's finally time. Additionally, since she's been primarily out of pro play for a while now, we're shifting some of her kit's power from raw stats to her abilities to create more room for skill expression.

Base Stats

HEALTH 610  550

Q - Switcheroo!

BONUS RANGE 75/100/125/150/175  100/125/150/175/200

E - Flame Chompers!

COST 70 mana  90 mana
ARM TIME 0.7 seconds  0.5 seconds
updatedNO MORE FLAMING When casting Flame Chompers! farther than max range, it now casts to the max range instead of causing you to walk into range and then casting


Base mana regen increased. Q cost decreased.

Bringing good karma to support Karma.

Base Stats

MANA REGEN 11.5  13

Q - Inner Flame

COST 65 mana  55 mana


E cooldown decreased.

Morde isn't grasping the new season well, so we're giving him more grasp. We're hoping this along with other system changes (Riftmaker giving more health, AD bruiser items getting nerfed) will help him navigate this strange new world.

E - Death's Grasp

COOLDOWN 24/21/18/15/12 seconds  22/19/16/13/10 seconds


Base health decreased. Passive bonus attack speed decreased; now displays amount of attack speed on passive icon.

Olaf is dominating in the jungle. We're nerfing his clear speed and dueling slightly so he's a bit more dependent on finding successful ganks.

Base Stats

HEALTH 597  575

Passive - Berserker Rage

BONUS ATTACK SPEED 0-100%  0-75%
newLEAVE NOTHING BEHIND The amount of attack speed being granted is now displayed on Olaf's passive icon


Q now has decreased damage against both minions and monsters; cooldown increased early.

Balancing out Pantheon's power both in mid and the jungle.

Q - Comet Spear

REDUCED DAMAGE AGAINST Minions  Minions and monsters
COOLDOWN 10/9.5/9/8.5/8 seconds  13/11.75/10.5/9.25/8 seconds


E cooldown flattened.

Rammus rolled comfortably into preseason and has gained more momentum with the cheaper tank Mythic items. We're reducing some of his taunt power now that his engages have become more consistent.

E - Frenzying Taunt

COOLDOWN 12/11.5/11/10.5/10 seconds  12 seconds


W1 and W2 damage ratio increased. E damage ratio increased; unbind cooldown decreased; cooldown bug fixed; long distance pathing bug fixed. R damage ratio increased.

So far so good for Rell, so no meaningful balance adjustments here. These changes are light usability work and bugfixes, sprinkled with a bit of love for the very-much-not-a-thing AP Rell builds.

W - Ferromancy: Crash Down


W - Ferromancy: Mount Up


E - Attract and Repel

UNBIND COOLDOWN 3 seconds  1 second
COOLDOWN BUGFIX Fixed a bug where Rell's E - Attract and Repel cooldown was scaling non-linearly
CAST (FAR)AWAY When cast from very long ranges, Rell should now properly path towards the target until in range to cast her E

R - Magnet Storm



E cooldown decreased.

The new season put Riven in a weak spot, and with high cooldowns on her E, she's lost her mojo. Since both of her hardbound items (Goredrinker/Ravenous Hydra) are getting substantial nerfs this patch, we're looking to reforge her spirit.

E - Valor

COOLDOWN 12/11/10/9/8 seconds  10/9/8/7/6 seconds


Passive base note damage decreased. W shield decreased.

Seraphine is often front and center, and with her strong stage presence in mid lane (and other roles), she's in need of some tuning down.

Passive - Stage Presence

BASE NOTE DAMAGE 5-20 (levels 1-18)  4-16 (levels 1-18)

W - Surround Sound

SHIELD 60-120 (levels 1-18)  50-100 (levels 1-18)


Q empowered basic attack damage and second strike bonus damage increased. W bonus movement speed increased.

While AD Shyvana has been tearing up the Rift with both fighter and tank builds, AP Shyv has been dragging (dragon?) behind in the new season. We want to buff AP Shyvana in ways that aren't centered around her just spamming fireballs. These changes should help her clear speed, which is weaker with the new items.

Q - Twin Bite

SECOND STRIKE BONUS DAMAGE 20/35/50/65/80% AD  20/35/50/65/80% AD + 15% AP

W - Burnout

BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED 30/35/40/45/50%  30/35/40/45/50% + (8%/100 AP) (still decays linearly)


Q damage ratio increased.

Singed has been struggling since preseason, and even more so after the recent Imperial Mandate changes. We're adding some power back to his signature spell. Remember, always chase Singed.

Q - Poison Trail



Q cost flattened. W damage increased.

We're unshackling Sylas while also evening out his skill ranks.

Q - Chain Lash

COST 50/55/60/65/70 mana  55 mana

W - Kingslayer

DAMAGE 65/100/135/170/205 (+85% AP)  70/105/140/175/210 (+90% AP)


Passive bonus movement speed increased. Q subsequent stone damage against monsters decreased.

Taliyah's jungle surfing in Elite levels of play has been seismic. We're reverting some previous changes (11.1 and partially 10.25), while narrowing in on some specific jungle clear nerfs.

Passive - Rock Surfing

BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED 12-40% (levels 1-18)  20-45% (levels 1-18)

Q - Threaded Volley



R total base active aura damage decreased later.

Udyr is another dominant jungler at the moment, especially with a Phoenix max. His items are already getting hit, so this nerf is aimed to be lighter than what he would normally merit.

R - Phoenix Stance

TOTAL BASE ACTIVE AURA DAMAGE 50/100/150/200/250/300  50/95/140/185/230/275


R cooldown now flat.

Now that we've taken a couple stabs at balancing out preseason item changes, Vladimir has been left a little worse for wear. Instead of focusing buffs on his damage or healing, we're taking a different route and opening up access to his ult.

R - Hemoplague

COOLDOWN 150/135/120 seconds  120 seconds


Mage Items

We're doing a pass on mage items to create more balance amongst their purchase rates and to stop any one item from overshadowing the others (Lich Bane, Zhonya's Hourglass, Seeker's Armguard). We're also broadening Horizon Focus by lowering its activation range so that more mages can take advantage of its specialty. Lastly, we're unifying the stacking passives between Verdant Barrier and Seeker's Armguard for consistency.

Lich Bane


Horizon Focus


Verdant Barrier

updatedADAPTIVE PASSIVE Every 60 seconds gain 3 bonus magic resistance, stacking up to 5 times. Taking magic damage reduces the time it takes to gain magic resistance  Grants 0.5 magic resistance per each unit killed (maximum 15)
COMBINE COST 315 gold  115 gold

Banshee's Veil

COMBINE COST 400 gold  700 gold

Seeker's Armguard

COMBINE COST 165 gold  265 gold
TOTAL COST 900 gold  1000 gold

Zhonya's Hourglass

TOTAL COST 2500 gold  2600 gold

Enchanter Items

Zooming in on enchanter items, it’s clear that Flowing Water is largely overperforming compared to other second item choices. On the other hand, Chemtech Putrifier is fulfilling its niche role quite well (healing reduction), but it's not purchased as often or as powerful as the other Grievous Wounds items. We’re making some changes to ensure that enchanters feel they have access to a viable Grievous Wounds option as well as the other classes.

Staff of Flowing Water


Chemtech Putrifier

updatedPUFFCAP TOXIN PASSIVE Inflicts immobilized enemy champions with 60% Grievous Wounds for 3 seconds  Healing or shielding an allied champion now empowers the ally's next damage to an enemy champion with 60% Grievous Wounds for 3 seconds

Fighter Items

Silvermere Dawn isn't as efficient for an item we think is an important piece in the fighter ecosystem, so we're upping its power. Additionally, Ironspike Whip has been helping certain champions invalidate minion waves, so we're removing the empowered damage to minions to better highlight those champions' strengths and weaknesses.

Silvermere Dawn

HEALTH 200  300

Ironspike Whip

removedCRESCENT EMPOWERED DAMAGE Ironspike no longer deals more damage to low health minions and monsters

Marksman Items

We're noticing that Phantom Dancer is rarely built as a second item, and almost never as a third. Not many champions need that much attack speed, so we're reshaping what the items give to marksman champions. We're also adding more oomph to Immortal Shieldbow since it's only purchased by hard-bound short ranged users that benefit from lifesteal, and even then, it loses out often to Galeforce which does the same in most situations.

Phantom Dancer

BUILD PATH Dagger + Dagger + Zeal + 950 gold  Zeal + Long Sword + Long Sword + 850 gold

Immortal Shieldbow


Lord Dominik's Regards


Sustain Items

When building sustain, players should be feeling the effects of a real trade-off, usually in the form of damage. However, certain items with omnivamp (particularly Goredrinker and Ravenous Hydra) are feeling particularly overpowered due to less of a trade-off in damage. We're going through and making adjustments to those items, hitting their early game power specifically.


THIRSTING SLASH HEAL 25% AD + 12% missing health  25% AD + 8% missing Health

Leeching Leer

OMNIVAMP 10%  5%
HEALTH 150  250


OMNIVAMP 15%  8%
HEALTH 150  300

OMNIVAMP 10%  8%

Ravenous Hydra

OMNIVAMP 15%  10%

Sterak's Gage

LIFELINE SHIELD DURATION 5 seconds  4 seconds

Tank Items

We're addressing some tank item outliers and opening Frozen Heart as a cheaper mana and ability haste item for tank supports, top laners, and junglers alike.

Force of Nature

ABSORB BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED 6 (maximum 30)  8 (maximum 40)

Dead Man's Plate

Zaun Clash

Sign-ups and team formation for the first Clash of Season 2021 will begin during 11.3 on Monday, February 15th! The tournament will officially start in patch 11.4. Check out the Clash tab in the client for specific tournament start times and details.

ARURF Balance Changes

ARURF is back in time for the Lunar festivities. Since this is the first URF since the item changes, we're changing a few things to better fit with the new system. The intent is to allow players to build the items they want to without worrying about missing out on any value. Now, even though your starting cooldowns will be ever so slightly higher than last time URF was on, you can now build ability haste and mana items without the worry of missing out on stats… and can potentially get your cooldowns even lower than you ever could before.
  • ARURF (and URF) now grants 300 ability haste instead of 80% CDR. Ability haste you gain from other sources will stack with the URF bonus unlike in previous runs.
  • The URF bonus ability haste also applies to Summoner Spells and item actives, similar to how the special CDR did before
  • Bonus mana will now be converted to health at a 40% ratio. Bonus mana regen is converted to health regen at a 100% ratio.
  • Spellthief's Edge, Steel Shoulderguards, Relic Shield, and Spectral Sickle will be disabled. The gold penalty for killing minions given by these items far exceeds any value you would normally get for building these items, especially when considering that a portion of gold is already shared with minion kills on URF.
  • The runes Lethal Tempo and Ultimate Hunter will no longer be disabled

Bugfixes/QoL Changes

  • LEAGUE CLIENT: Receiving a game invite will now play a sound if you have another invite pending
  • When a player is flagged as AFK/Leaver at the end of any Ranked game, they will be notified that their LP will be reduced; this applies to both wins and losses. The other players in the lobby will be notified that the flagged AFK/Leaver player will receive less LP over their next several games. If a player would exceed 100 LP, but would fall back below 100 LP after the penalty is applied, they do not promote.
  • Fixed a bug where Shyvana's W - Burnout would not apply the AP ratio for additional movement speed when in her dragon form
  • Fixed a bug where Goredrinker and Ceaseless Hunger's Mythic Passive would not grant additional 5 ability haste for each Legendary item in the player's inventory
  • Fixed a bug where an attack empowered by both Sheen and Essence Reaver would not grant mana back from Essence Reaver
  • Items that do damage to enemies can now properly trigger the execute from The Collector
  • The Collector's execute will now properly trigger on targets with Death's Dance
  • Eclipse and Syzygy's omnivamp will now properly work even after being upgraded by Ornn's Passive - Living Forge
  • The SFX that plays when a player acquires a Dragon Soul will no longer replay if that player kills a Red Brambleback or Blue Sentinel
  • The Dragon Soul VFX no longer disappears on death and reappears after the player kills a Red Brambleback or Blue Sentinel
  • Imperial Mandate's Coordinate Fire passive now properly goes on cooldown for 6 seconds after on-champion slows and immobilizations
  • Fixed a bug where if Smite was used before jungle monsters spawned, the cooldown would be longer than intended
  • Gangplank has a new interface to upgrade his ultimate with Silver Serpents! Check it out while you're in base, since no one ever forgets to buy their upgrades.
