Teamfight Tactics (TFT): Patch Notes List

Teamfight Tactics (TFT): Patch Notes List

This list contains all the Teamfight Tactics patch notes released by Riot in 2019.

The patch notes of the Teamfight Tactics updates have been released as a message on Twitter. I could not find a section dedicated to them, so I decided to create this page.

I will keep updating this list over time as soon as proper info for each patch is provided.

A note on TFT balance: Not all champions are intended to be at the same power level. Some are supposed to be weak. Some are supposed to be S-tier.

Systems

Player Damage Adjustments

With the loot changes, we’ve noticed a slight acceleration in game speed leading to players going out much quicker than we intend. So we’re lowering player damage slightly.

  • 1 Star, Tier 2: 2 ⇒ 1

  • 2 Star, Tier 2: 3 ⇒ 2

  • 3 Star, Tier 1: 4 ⇒ 3

  • 3 Star, Tier 2: 5 ⇒ 4

  • 3 Star Tier 3: 6 ⇒ 5

Mystery Box System Adjustments

The new system has been a positive addition to the game, but needs some fine tuning, so we’re making a few adjustments.

  • Common boxes average gold value decreased.

  • Uncommon boxes average gold value decreased very slightly.

  • Slightly lowered the odds of Gold Boxes showing up.

  • Tier 4 units can no longer drop from Uncommon boxes.

  • Slightly increased the odds of Neeko’s Help dropping from all boxes

Traits

Dragon

Due to how easy it is to get Magic Resist and the lack of options on how to play around it, we’re lowering the strength of Dragon & Dragon’s Claw.

  • Dragon (2): 83% Magic Reduction ⇒ 75% Magic Reduction

Glacial

Glacial Procs are a little too powerful, so we’re making a similar consistency change that we did to Swordbreaker and applying it to Glacial.

  • Glacial Stun duration: 2sec ⇒ 1.5sec

  • Glacial Stun chance: 20/30/45 ⇒ 20/33/50

Void

With the addition of Kai’Sa, we wanted to lower the power of the early Void. However, we still want to open up more build options and reward those who fully commit to the void.

  • (2) One random void champion deals true damage this combat

  • (4) All your void champions deal true damage this combat

Yordle

We’ve removed RFC's ability to ignore dodges, so now it only exists on Wild. Because of that, we’re pulling a bit of power back out of Yordle. The introduction of mittens also means we’re adding a new 9 piece chase option.

  • Yordle Dodge chance: 35%/60% ⇒ 30%/60%/90%

General Trait Adjustments

  • Assassin: (3) 75% Crit damage & 10% Crit chance / (6) 150% Crit damage & 25% Crit chance / (9) 225% Crit damage & 40% Crit chance ⇒ (3) 75% Crit damage & 10% Crit chance / (6) 150% Crit damage & 20% Crit chance / (9) 225% Crit damage & 30% Crit chance

  • Ninja Attack Damage and Ability Power: 50/70 ⇒ 50/80

  • Noble: 25 Heal on hit ⇒ 30 Heal on hit

  • Shapeshifter Bonus Health: 60%/120% ⇒ 60%/100%

  • Ranger: 30%/70% ⇒ 25%/70%

Champions

Anivia

Anivia has been underperforming for a 5 cost, so we’re changing her identity to be a strong unit that slows the attack speed of the back line.

  • Health: 700 ⇒ 750

  • Attack Speed: 0.6 ⇒ 0.8

  • Starting/Total Mana: 0/100 ⇒ 50/125

  • Ability Targeting: Random ⇒ Furthest Target

Kassadin

Kassadin has proven problematic as a dps champ who can also gain a shield and also drain mana. We’re shifting his identity into a front-line sorcerer and pulling out some of the damage.

  • Attack Damage: 50 ⇒ 40

  • Attack Speed: 0.6 ⇒ 0.55

  • Armor: 25 ⇒ 35

  • Mana Steal & Shield Power: 20/40/60 ⇒ 25/50/75

Miss Fortune

We’re adjusting Miss Fortune to be a powerful auto attacker for gunslingers who rarely casts. When she does cast, it’s a big one!

  • Health: 700 ⇒ 750

  • Attack Speed: 0.85 ⇒ 0.95

  • Mana: 0/75 ⇒ 0/150

  • Ability Damage: 900/1300/1700 ⇒ 1300/2000/2700

  • Mordekaiser Spell Damage: 200/325/450 ⇒ 250/500/750

  • Blitzcrank Ability Damage: 100/450/800 ⇒ 250/550/850

  • Braum Mana: 0/50 ⇒ 0/75

  • Rek’Sai AS: 0.65 ⇒ 0.6

Tier 3

  • Ashe Mana: 0/100 ⇒ 0/125

  • Katarina Dmg Per Tick: 40/60/80 ⇒ 45/70/95

  • Shyvana Burn Damage: 250/375/500 ⇒ 200/300/400

  • Veigar Spell Dmg: 300/550/800 ⇒ 350/650/950

  • Vi Health: 650 ⇒ 700

  • Vi Spell Damage: 250/450/650 ⇒ 300/500/700

  • Volibear Health: 700 ⇒ 750

  • Jinx Attack Speed: 0.65 ⇒ 0.7

  • Kindred Attack Speed: 0.65 ⇒ 0.7

  • Kindred Ability Duration: 4/5/6 ⇒ 3/4/5

  • Sejuani Health: 850 ⇒ 800

  • Sejuani Stun Duration: 2/4/6 ⇒ 2/3.5/5

Tier 5

  • Swain Damage per tick: 50/100/150 ⇒ 40/80/120

  • Swain Heal per tick: 40/70/100 ⇒ 30/60/90

  • Yasuo Health: 700 ⇒ 750

Items

  • Dragon’s Claw: 83% Magic Reduction ⇒ 75% Magic Reduction

  • Frozen Heart: 30% Attack Speed Slow ⇒ 35% Attack Speed Slow

  • Infinity Edge: +200% Critical Damage ⇒ +150% Critical Damage

  • Rapidfire Cannon: No longer grants “Your attacks can’t be dodged”

  • Titanic Hydra: 10% Max Health in a splash ⇒ 3% Max Health to target and adjacent enemies behind them.

  • Zephyr: Now is a Unique item

Bugfixes

  • Gangplank and Akali now have proper move speed.

  • Ranger’s Focus now properly grants 100% extra attack speed.

  • Ranger’s Focus can no longer stack on itself.

  • Matchmaking is less streaky.

  • Shyvana’s ability tooltip no longer says she prevents healing.

  • Elise Spiderlings now have the correct stats.

  • The range of Lucian’s ability will always equal his attack range.

September 11

Bugs and Spatulas

  • Fixed a bug where you were charged too much gold when buying a unit, which also allowed your gold to go into negatives but display as 0.

  • Removed Spatulas from Uncommon boxes as intended.

  • Lowered the drop rate of Spatulas from Rare boxes.

September 10 - Patch 9.18

New Stuff

Mystery Box System

We’ve changed how items are distributed in PVE rounds. The goal is to keep a variety of experiences across many games, but also to make the game more fair over the course of a single game.

  • Common boxes contain: gold, champions, or Neeko's Help

  • Uncommon Boxes contain item components, gold, champions, or Neeko's Help

  • Rare boxes contain: Spatulas, full items, gold, champions, or Neeko's Help

  • Every player gets approximately the same number of boxes across a single game.

  • Every player gets approximately the same number of item components across a single game.

Neeko's Help

  • Place on a champion to create a 1-star copy of that champion and add it to your bench. Doing so consumes Neeko's Help.

Systems

XP Adjustments

Due to the slightly inflated gold from the new loot system, we’ve made some adjustments to how much XP it takes to level.

  • Level 5: 10xp ⇒ 12xp

  • Level 6: 18xp ⇒ 20xp

  • Level 7: 30xp ⇒ 32xp

  • Level 8: 46xp ⇒ 50xp

  • Level 9: 64xp ⇒ 70xp

Champion Tier Drop Rates

We’ve made some minor adjustments to how likely which tier champions will appear at a few different levels. We’re hoping these make clearer early, mid, and late game phases.

  • Level 3 by Tier: 65%/ 30%/ 5%/ 0%/ 0% ⇒ 70%/ 25%/ 5%/ 0%/ 0%

  • Level 5 by Tier: 37%/ 35%/ 25%/ 3%/ 0% ⇒ 35%/ 35%/ 25%/ 5%/ 0%

  • Level 6 by Tier: 24.5%/ 35%/ 30%/ 10%/ 0.5% ⇒ 25%/ 35%/ 30%/ 10%/ 0%

  • Level 9 by Tier: 10%/ 15%/ 35%/ 30%/ 10% ⇒ 10%/ 15%/ 33%/ 30%/ 12%

  • All other levels remain the same.

Champion Pool Sizes

It’s proven a bit too consistent to get 2 star tier 3 champions, so we’re shrinking the bag size to reward players who build the path less taken.

  • Tier 3 champions in pool: 21 ⇒ 18

Item Stacking and Clarity

We took a pass at all the items to ensure that they stack in a sensible way, and that we’re informing you when they don’t. Adding copies of items that do not stack will now cause them to bounce off any champion they are placed on. Unique items will be labelled as such in their tooltips. All items listed below are not intended to stack.

  • Youmuu’s Ghostblade

  • Knight’s Vow

  • Frozen Mallet

  • Yuumi

  • Blade of the Ruined King

  • Darkin

  • Phantom Dancer

  • Morellonomicon

  • Red Buff

Traits

New Nine Piece Bonuses

We’re adding new nine piece chase options for some of the traits that can be completed with Spatula items. These are not teasers for new champs this time! But we like the high end chase options so we wanted to explore a few more.

  • Assassin 9 piece: Grants 225% crit damage and 40% crit chance

  • Sorcerer 9 piece: Grants 175% spell power

Wild

We’ve added some extra power to four piece wild so that the four wild units actually get a benefit from four wild. We think it’s going to be wild.

  • Wild (4): All your allies gain 12% AS per attack (up to 5 stacks) AND their basic attacks can’t miss.

General Trait Adjustments

  • Elementalist Golem's Armor: 20 ⇒ 40

  • Knight Damage Reduction: 15/30/55 ⇒ 15/35/65

  • Assassin jump delay: 0.325sec ⇒ 0.395sec

Tier 5

  • Anivia Ability Duration: 800 damage over 8sec ⇒ 800 damage over 6sec

  • Pantheon Attack Damage: 80 ⇒ 75

Items

  • Frozen Heart debuff duration: 2.875sec ⇒ 4sec

  • Locket of the Iron Solari shield amount: 250 for 6 seconds ⇒ 300 for 7 seconds

  • Swordbreaker chance to disarm: 25% chance to disarm for 4 seconds ⇒ 33% chance to disarm for 3 seconds

  • Zephyr banish duration: 5 seconds ⇒ 6 seconds

Bugfixes

  • Morgana's ability will now work consistently on isolated summoned minions and neutral monsters.

  • Zeke’s Herald and Locket of the Iron Solari will no longer give their buffs to enemy team units if re-enabled after Hextech.

  • Khazix’s ability now always deals true damage if 3 Void is active.

  • Luden’s Echo now properly hits the main target of an ability.

  • Camille Ability: Evelynn will no longer be able to escape the root using her ability.

  • Camille Ability: Shyvana will now dash in place rather than lose all of her mana without transforming.

  • Camille Ability: Pantheon and Vi will not cast their abilities while rooted.

  • Frozen Mallet’s tooltip now properly reflects the extra health it grants.

  • Darkin’s tooltip now properly reflects the extra mana it grants.

  • Grievous Wounds tooltips now properly state that they reduce healing by 80% rather than 100%.

  • Demons will not gain mana through their trait if mana locked.

  • Brand’s ability was bouncing two more times than intended. It now bounces the appropriate amount of times.

  • Fixed a bug where Rek’Sai was healing for half the intended amount.

Music

New Soundtrack

Teamfight Tactic's new music will change based on what phase of the game you're in. For instance, during shopping phase the music is calmer and less busy, but as battle phase starts the music transitions into a more energetic combat driven style. There are also 3 different “chapters” of music: the first chapter goes from the beginning of the game to when first player is knocked out. The second is from that point until there are only 3 players left. Then the final chapter brings us home.

August 29

Pantheon

He's a bit too strong.

  • Starting/Total Mana: 100/150 ⇒ 150/200

  • Armor: 100 ⇒ 80

  • Ability Damage: 15%/30%/45% maximum Health ⇒ 10%/20%/30% maximum Health

  • Grand Starfall: Pantheon leaps in the air, crashing down towards the farthest enemy, stunning them for 4/6/8 seconds. Enemies in Pantheon's path take 15%/30%/45% of their Maximum Health as Magic Damage. They then burn for an additional 20% of their Maximum Health as True Damage over 10 seconds. Applies Grievous Wounds. Note: the in-game tooltip is lagging behind and will be updated to reflect this in patch 9.18.

Healing Changes

Healing effects were tuned around Grievous Wounds, completely turning them off. Since we're reducing Grievous Wounds' effect, we're also reducing the effectiveness of other healing effects to keep them from becoming too strong.

August 14 - Patch 9.16

New Origin and Champions

The Hextechs

The Hextech champions are all strong and serve their own purpose, but together they give some counterplay to items. But the bomb itself can be played around. We hope this adds a new and interesting dynamic to play around.

  • Trait: Throw a bomb at an enemy unit with an item, and disables all items in a 1/2 hex radius for 8 seconds.

Camille

  • Class: Blademaster

  • Cost: 1 Gold

  • Cost: 4 Gold

  • Rocket Damage: 100/225/350 magic damage in an explosion that covers 3 hexes total.

Systems

Matchmaking

We've improved how the player matching works to prevent the streaky scenarios where you would face the same player (or ghost army) two or more times in a row. Now this should happen almost never.

URF Overtime Mode

We don’t like draws. They aren’t fun. So now, 30 seconds in to every battle, URF Overtime kicks in and speeds things up for 15 seconds. Draws are still possible but there should be a lot less of them.

  • 30 seconds into every battle the URF Overtime bonus will activate.

  • 300% Attack Speed

  • 200% Ability Damage

  • 66% reduced Crowd Control duration

  • 66% Healing Reduction

  • 30% increased affection towards maritime mammals.

Ranked changes

Teamfight Tactics' ranked system is looking pretty good overall. Even so, we’re‌ ‌taking‌ ‌stock‌ ‌and‌ making ‌a‌ ‌few‌ ‌tuning‌ ‌adjustments.‌ Specifically, a couple bugs and ‌inconsistencies‌ ‌made‌ ‌it‌ ‌a‌ ‌little‌ ‌more‌ ‌forgiving‌ ‌than‌ ‌we‌ ‌intended. You'll now almost always be demoted if you lose LP in any game you start at 0 LP (this was always intended). Additionally, Grandmaster and Challenger players who demote will now skip Master and go directly to Diamond 1 (this is due to some funky situations at the top of the ladder making it impossible for GM and Challengers to demote). If you want to read more about these changes and why we made them, check out SapMagic's post here!

  • As intended, everyone will now be demoted if you lose LP in any game you start at 0LP.

  • For Grandmaster and Challenger players, if you're demoted you will now skip Master and go directly to Diamond 1. This is now true in League of Legends as well.

  • We've also made adjustments to LP gains and losses underneath the hood for extreme edge cases. For the most part, you will not see or feel any changes based on this optimization.

Player damage

We made some changes to player damage in patch 9.15 and overall it worked well. But it led to games being longer than intended, especially when fights were close. So we’re making some more adjustments. Overall damage should still be less than at launch.

  • Base damage now scales with current stage.

  • Stages 1-2: 1 damage

  • Stage 3-4: 2 damage

  • Stage 5: 3 damage

  • Stage 6: 4 damage

  • Stage 7+: 5 damage

Traits

Brawler

Brawlers are quite strong and are getting a bit too much free health so we're toning that down a bit.

  • Bonus Health: 300/700/1200 ⇒ 300/600/1000

Demon

We’ve redesigned the Demon trait bonus to not be quite the shutdown of ability dependent units like it was before. Instead, Demons drain mana allowing them to cast their spells faster.

  • Demon basic attacks have a 40% chance to burn 20 mana from their target and return 15/30/45 mana to the attacker.

Ninja

Ninja should be strong single units that have a place on almost any team. Right now they're not getting there, so we're buffing their trait and some of the individual champions.

  • Bonus Attack Damage and Ability Power: 40/60 ⇒ 50/70

Noble

Nobles are still underperforming a bit as an end-game fantasy. We'll likely need to make bigger changes to address this, but for now we're giving them a small bump.

  • Bonus Armor and Magic Resist: 60 ⇒ 75

Sorcerer

Three piece Sorcerer is a just a little too strong due to its versatility.

  • Bonus Ability Power: 45%/100% ⇒ 40%/100%

Wild

Wild is still underperforming, we're giving it just a little bit more.

  • Attack Speed: 10% per stack ⇒ 12% per stack

  • Health on resurrection: 800 ⇒ 500

New drop mechanic

  • Fixed Win/Lose streak gold being granted after PvE Rounds instead of after the PvP Round that happened before (streak gold should be granted at the end of all PvP rounds and no PvE rounds).

  • Fixed Little Legends having collision after dying (and subsequently body blocking players in the shared roulette).

  • Fixed Blitzcrank attempting (and failing) at targeting untargetable enemies, and therefore not casting.

August 7 - Patch 9.15b

  • Now works against assassins as intended.

Thornmail

  • Damage type has been changed from True damage to Magic damage.

July 30 - Patch 9.15

Systems

Win/Loss streaks

We’re making win and loss streaks more beneficial.

  • Win/Loss streak breakpoints: 2/5/8 ⇒ 2/4/7

Class breakpoints

We’ve added new breakpoints to a few Classes. For...reasons, just don't worry about it ok?

  • Gunslinger 6 ⇒ Gunslingers have a chance to fire 3 additional attacks.

  • Brawler 6 ⇒ All Brawlers gain 1200 extra HP

  • Shapeshifter 6 ⇒ Shapeshifters gain 120% Bonus Health on Transform

  • Blademaster 9 ⇒ Blademasters have a chance to gain 4 extra attacks. (This one is currently possible, good luck)

Player damage

We’re lowering the damage players take from minions and certain champion tier and star levels.

  • Damage from Spiderlings/Elemental Golem: 2 ⇒ 1

  • Tier 4 (1 Star): 3 ⇒ 2

  • Tier 5 (1 Star): 4 ⇒ 3

  • Tier 3 (2 Star): 4 ⇒ 3

  • Tier 4 (2 Star): 5 ⇒ 4

  • Tier 5 (2 Star): 6 ⇒ 5

  • Tier 4 (3 Star): 7 ⇒ 6

Carousel stage

  • Available Units: 10 ⇒ 9

Assassin

We nerfed the Assassins in 9.14b, but we still want them to be functional in other comps (Example Wild Rengar should be viable). So, we’re putting some power into their abilities to avoid synergizing their new power with the Assassin trait bonus. We’ve also made some systemic changes to how Assassins move in combat, and how they acquire their targets. This should add deeper counter-play to Assassin positioning.

  • Assassins jump earlier and their jumps are quicker.

  • Non-Assassin champ movement is slowed for the start of combat.

  • Assassins can be targeted sooner.

  • Evelynn Attack Damage: 60 ⇒ 70

  • Evelynn Ability Damage: 200/250/350 ⇒ 200/300/400

  • Katarina Ability Targets: 3/5/7 ⇒ 4/6/8

  • Rengar Attack Damage: 65 ⇒ 70

  • Rengar Attack Speed: 0.55 ⇒ 0.60

  • Rengar Ability Attack Speed Buff: 0.3/0.5/0.7 ⇒ 0.4/0.7/1.0

Demon

Demon is proving a little on the strong side, so we’re making adjustments to keep them in check.

  • Demon Mana Burn: 25%/50%/85% chance ⇒ 20%/35%/60% chance

  • Varus Ability Damage: 400/600/800 ⇒ 300/550/800

  • Aatrox Ability Damage: 400/700/1000 ⇒ 250/600/950

  • Aatrox Health: 750 ⇒ 700

  • Morgana Ability Damage: 300/375/450 ⇒ 200/325/450

Dragon

Dragons being 100% magic immune really shut down a lot of options to fight them. We’re removing that, and giving them a few minor defenses back to compensate.

  • Dragon: 100% Magic Immunity ⇒ 83% Magic Immunity

  • Shyvana Armor: 20 ⇒ 30

  • Aurelion Sol HP: 600 ⇒ 650

  • Aurelion Sol Ability Damage: 250/450/650 ⇒ 250/500/750

Elementalist

We pulled some of the power out of the Golem, but we still think they should be powerful casters that can also fit into other comps, so we are putting some power back into their abilities.

  • Lissandra Ability Damage: 150/200/250 ⇒ 150/275/400

  • Brand Ability Damage: 175/325/475 ⇒ 200/375/550

Guardian

Guardians are finding a small niche, but the cost of running one early is a bit much. So we’re buffing their trait bonus, and letting the Guardian’s be a bit tankier as solo units.

  • Guardians: (2) 40 armor per stack ⇒ (2) 50 armor per stack. Guardians don’t buff themselves.

  • Braum Armor: 25 ⇒ 75

  • Leona Armor: 55 ⇒ 100

Knight

Knights are currently a fine two-piece front line at the start, but then immediately fall off at four and six pieces. So, we're going to improve the Knight fantasy by having Knights protect your whole team. Little strikes won’t punch through these defenses!

  • Knights block 20/40/80 damage from basic attacks ⇒ Your team ignores 15/30/55 damage from all sources.

  • Darius Armor: 25 ⇒ 40

  • Garen Armor: 35 ⇒ 40

  • Mordekaiser Armor: 35 ⇒ 40

  • Sejuani Armor: 35 ⇒ 40

  • Sejuani Stun Duration: 2/3.5/5 ⇒ 2/4/6

  • Kayle HP: 800 ⇒ 750

  • Kayle Armor: 35 ⇒ 40

Ninja

The old Ninja bonus had some pretty big scaling issues, especially combined with the Assassin bonus. We want one Ninja on your team to be an attractive option, and if you can get all four Ninjas then they really turn on as auto-attackers and ability casters.

  • Ninja Trait Bonus: (1) 40% AD/(4) 80% AD ⇒ (1) +40 AD & AP / (4) +60 AD & AP

  • Shen Attack Speed: 0.6 ⇒ 0.7

  • Zed Attack Speed: 0.6 ⇒ 0.65

  • Zed Attack Damage: 60 ⇒ 65

  • Kennen Ability Damage: 400/650/900 ⇒ 225/450/675

  • Akali Ability Damage: 200/375/550 ⇒ 150/275/400

Noble

Noble should be a very powerful buff when you get it, but the lack of magic resistance proved that wasn’t the case, so we’re adding magic resistance to the trait. We’re also changing the attack speed and damage of many nobles so they can use their buff better, but maintain their DPS.

  • Noble: 100 Armor/+35 Life on Hit ⇒ 60 Armor & MR/+35 Life on hit

  • Vayne Attack Damage: 45 ⇒ 40

  • Vayne Attack Speed: 0.65 ⇒ 0.75

  • Garen Attack Damage: 55 ⇒ 50

  • Garen Attack Speed: 0.55 ⇒ 0.6

  • Garen Ability Damage: 450/585/720 ⇒ 360/585/810

  • Garen: Fixed a bug where he wouldn’t move while spinning. Beyblade is back!

Pirate

Pirate was likely overnerfed for fear of what it could do to economy builds. We’re making it less likely to get those boots/fish bones, and adjusting some of the champions.

  • Pirate: Average Gold Per Chest: 1.6 ⇒ 1.75

  • Graves Attack Speed: 0.5 ⇒ 0.55

  • Twisted Fate: Improved cast speed

  • Twisted Fate Ability Damage: 100/150/200 ⇒ 150/250/350

Void

We’re reimagining the Void this patch. These are monsters that, in force, can tear through your defenses you worked so hard to set up. Be afraid of the Void!

  • Void Trait Bonus: All your units ignore 50% armor ⇒ Void units now deal True Damage.

  • Kassadin Attack Damage: 45 ⇒ 55

  • Kassadin Attack Speed: 0.65 ⇒ 0.6

  • Khazix Ability Damage Non-Isolated: 150/250/350 ⇒ 150/300/450

  • Khazix Attack Damage: 50 ⇒ 55

  • Rek’Sai Attack Damage: 40 ⇒ 50

  • Rek’Sai Ability Damage: 150/250/350 ⇒ 200/350/500

  • Rek’Sai Ability Heal: 300/400/500 ⇒ 150/300/450

  • Cho’Gath Attack Speed: 0.55 ⇒ 0.6

  • Cho’Gath Ability Damage: 200/400/600 ⇒ 250/500/750

  • Cho’Gath Ability Knockup: 1.5/2/2.5 ⇒ 1.5/1.75/2

Yordle

Yordles are in a pretty good spot, but it can feel really bad when the dodge doesn’t work on things it probably should. We’re making a small adjustment, and improving the three-piece so you can throw Yordles into many other comps.

  • Yordles: (3) 25%/(6) 60% Dodge ⇒ (3) 30%/(6) 55% Dodge. Also dodges On-hit effects.

  • Lulu Armor: 25 ⇒ 20

  • Veigar HP: 450 ⇒ 500

  • Gnar AD: 45 ⇒ 50

Note: I have updated the champion synergy list with all the 9.15 changes.

Other Champions

There's a few units that we're adjusting apart from their traits: We’re making it more likely for Blitzcrank to get a 2nd grab off. Karthus needs to be just a little scarier. Yasuo isn’t quite pulling off the solo kill stunts he should be as a five-cost unit, so we’re buffing him a bit. Last but not least, Ashe & Kindred aren’t pulling their weight, so we’re giving them more damage.

  • Blitzcrank Mana: 150 ⇒ 125

  • Ashe AD: 60 ⇒ 65

  • Kindred AD: 55 ⇒ 60

  • Morgana: Ability cast time 0.35 ⇒ 0.5 sec to match all other champs

  • Yasuo AD: 65 ⇒ 75

  • Karthus Ability Damage: 350/600/850 ⇒ 400/700/1000

  • Karthus Ability Targets: 4/7/10 ⇒ 5/9/13

Items

Locket has been redesigned. It still provides valuable shields for the start of combat, but is much less about permanent health.

  • Locket gives a 200 HP Shield ⇒ Locket gives a 250 HP Shield that lasts for 4 seconds.

  • Ionic Spark Damage: 200 ⇒ 150

  • Hush Silence Duration: 5 seconds ⇒ 3 seconds

  • Statikk Shiv Damage: 100 ⇒ 90

Clarity and VFX changes

  • Akali: Adjusted her ability VFX to closer resemble its real hitbox.

  • Gangplank: Improved barrel placement logic, and they persist if GP dies while the fuse is lit.

  • Kayle: Added cast VFX and adjusted auto-attack missile VFX.

  • Kennen: Changed which animation plays while casting his ability.

  • Morgana: Spell cast time increased to match most other champions.

  • Sejuani: Changed which animation plays while casting her ability.

  • Volibear: Changed which animation plays when he crits.

Bugfixes

  • Rek'sai will now be healed by Redemption while burrowed.

  • The Darkin item will no longer give mana to demons when equipping during combat phase.

  • Vayne can no longer apply Silver Bolts onto units in Shen's Spirit Refuge.

  • Frozen Heart will no longer break for a round when selling it's host unit.

  • Dragon's Claw will no longer reduce damage from champion abilities that deal true damage.

  • The play again button will take you back to the same queue you just played (Darkhorse MVP candidate of this patch).

  • Voicechat and party will persist through multiple games.

July 24 - Patch 9.14b

Systems

Attack Speed Changes

  • We've changed all champions' attack speed ratios so that attack speed bonuses are now calculated based on a percent of the champion's base attack speed. In short, champions with lower base attack speeds will receive less benefit from attack speed items. Certain champions and attack speed granting items have been adjusted in this patch to compensate.

PvE Rounds

  • In the event that you do not get an item during a PvE round, one of the minions, monsters, or epic monsters will now drop gold instead.
