It's that time again! It's preseason, baby, and this year, we're moving and shaking with huge item changes from the Item Shop you open up every game to updates for some of your favorites to an all-new tier of majestic Mythic items. As usual, we'll be closely monitoring all the balance metrics we've outlined earlier this year and see how these changes affect the overall meta for veterans. Additionally, a huge goal of ours with this Item rework was to help the system feel a lot more intuitive for all players (both old and new), so let us know your thoughts!

Take this portal if you're looking for TFT's patch notes!

Patch Highlights


Battlecast Nasus, Battlecast Zac, Resistance Jayce, Resistance Singed, and Resistance Yorick will be available on November 12, 2020.

New Item Shop

The Item Shop refresh was designed with a few different goals. We wanted to create a streamlined, data-based Recommended Items experience, Improve the usability of the All Items view, maintain the ability to use and import item sets, and update the visual look and feel to match League’s evolving aesthetic.

As always, we'll be keeping our ears to the ground and will continue working with you all to make the item shop the best it can be.

The Recommended Items page displays relevant items for your champion based on where you currently are in your build, who you're up against, and how the game is progressing. It's meant to provide a quick way for you to understand what comes next on your journey to go plus ultra.
DATA-DRIVEN RECOMMENDATIONS The presented items update based on the most popular build for your champion.
ITEM ADVICE Find out if an item will help you specifically stomp a pesky opponent or if it's a generally all-around good choice
COMMONLY BUILT Displays some of the most common item purchases for your champion.

All Items


The All Items page is where you go if you want to see all the items. It contains everything you need to slice and dice the armory of League down to reasonable chunks.
CLASS TABS Your champion's class tab will automatically be selected, which helps you avoid looking at tank items on Ahri (unless that's your thing).
RECOMMENDED TAB The Recommended tab displays all of the completed items your champion likes to build as well as their components. Clicking on this will raise your MMR.
STAT FILTERS Stat filters allow you to find that special ability power + attack speed item you've been looking for this holiday season.

Quickbuy Panels


You may have noticed some tabs hanging out on the left side of the shop. Introducing the Quickbuy panels! They make commonly purchased items like potions, elixirs, wards, and boots easy to access and quick… to… buy.
CONSUMABLES TAB Contains all potions, elixirs, and that control ward you swore you would buy if you weren't saving up for a B.F. Sword.
BOOTS TAB Holds all manner of foot coverings.
INVENTORY TAB Allows quick access to your inventory for selection, selling, and admiration.

Mythic Items

Mythic items are the new, highest item tier that will become the cornerstone of your build, with big effects that define your playstyle in each game. You can only own one at a time, so selecting a Mythic item (and the effects it grants) depends on your opponents and the game state. Your Mythic also sets the tone for the rest of your build, both in terms of which other items you'll want to pick up as well as a Mythic Passive that adds extra stats to your other fully completed items (now known as Legendary items). Mythic items generally carry the most complex effects and strongly impact your playstyle.

Even with the addition of a new tier of items, our goal isn't to inflate the power level of items overall. Mythics make your first choice more powerful than in the past, but we're borrowing that strength from the other item tiers to keep build strength relatively similar on the whole.
LIKE A FOUR LEAF CLOVER Mythic items are unique and you can only own one at a time
MYTHIC PASSIVE Each Mythic item has a passive that grants your Legendary items bonus stats
FEELS SHINY AND NEW Mythic item icons are animated in the shop and HUD!

Stat Updates

Ability Haste

Why did the Mythic section above talk about "ability haste" rather than "cooldown reduction," and why didn't we explain ability haste first? Because Mythics are cooler, so we put them first for people with short attention spans.

Cooldown reduction was more valuable the more of it you got. Every percent reduced your cooldown by the same amount-say, one second off a 100-second cooldown. That one second didn't change even as the cooldown shrank. For that same 100-second cooldown, your 31st point of CDR took one second off the remaining 70-second cooldown, which is more than 1%. As such, CDR had to be capped at 40% to avoid going out of control, locking you out of a lot of items once you reached that cap.

Every point of ability haste lets you cast 1% faster. On paper, that makes it look like it gets less valuable the more you have because your cooldown shrinks by less and less each time. It's actually the same amount of power. 50 ability haste lets you cast an extra half a spell during the original cooldown. The next 50 gets you to a full extra cast (100% faster). If you get another 100 ability haste, you get another whole cast (200% faster). This linear scaling allows us to remove the cap, so you can buy as much as you want.

Vamp Effects

The big change here is that life steal now counts physical damage dealt by on-hit effects-since the idea is "heal from your attacks," it's more understandable if we include the whole attack. The other note is the addition of "physical vamp," (which currently exists just on Sanguine Blade) so its sustain can apply to assassins' abilities too. If you're curious whether that means we'll eventually bring back spell vamp, the answer is "maybe!"
LIFE STEAL Heal from physical damage dealt by basic attacks. Now includes on-hit effects.
PHYSICAL VAMP Heal from physical damage dealt by basic attacks and abilities (33% effective for AoE and pet damage)
OMNIVAMP Heal from all sources and types of damage (still 33% effective for AoE and pet damage) (unchanged)

Critical Strike

Reducing the value of each point of critical strike chance and offering less of it per item allows us to smooth out marksman's build scaling and put more interesting-and powerful-unique effects on their items. They'll be stronger early- and mid-game, and their late-game damage will be less unilaterally based on constant crits since the other parts of their items will be more influential. Also, by spreading crit across five items (read: every non-boots slot) in marksman builds, we can put crit chance on more items because marksmen no longer run the risk of overcapping and losing access to items they otherwise would've wanted.
CRIT CHANCE ON LEGENDARY/MYTHIC ITEMS 25% (4 items to max) 20% (5 items to max)
BASE CRITICAL STRIKE DAMAGE 200% 175%

New Legendary Items

"Legendary" is the category of item that used to be the most powerful tier. They're your completed non-boots items that don't build into anything else.

We assessed different item classes to see which niches were most needed to create more meaningful choices. We also ensured that tools that were taken out of the item pool had good replacements when it made sense. Since Liandry's is now a Mythic, for instance, Demonic Embrace fills the niche for tankier champs who can't pick Liandry's every game, but still need a burn effect to deal relevant damage in fights. Because Mercurial Scimitar is now geared more towards marksman champions, we created a new version for fighters and assassins. Grievous Wounds warrants a special callout: We want to give more people access to it in ways that feel appropriate for their playstyles.

Updated Legendary Items

Just like with to our goals for new Legendaries, we wanted to ensure existing options all offer a clear, unique reason to buy them, and that the item shop as a whole gives champions the tools they need to bring their innate strengths to bear, play into their allies, and react to enemy threats. One trend you'll notice is that many active effects have been removed or changed into passives: We want Mythics to house the most exciting and complex item effects, which meant simplifying Legendaries to ensure builds overall weren't becoming more complicated.

Note: For each item below that has its own section, functionality has changed enough that the usual "before -> after" treatment felt like the wrong approach. We want to equip you with the ability to evaluate "When do I want to buy this item now?" and provide a clean, comprehensive rundown of what each item offers does that better. There's a bucket at the bottom for items that are only getting small tuning adjustments—those'll have the "before -> after" lists since they still work the same.

Mortal Reminder

No longer grants Armor Penetration. Now builds from Zeal. Now offers improved Grievous Wounds.

Previously, Mortal Reminder's percent penetration usually meant that completing it early was worse than buying more damage, since enemies needed to stack Armor before the penetration really mattered. Now, Mortal Reminder's more favorable build path and upgraded Grievous Wounds on completion offer additional incentive to complete it at all stages of the game.

SEPSIS Dealing physical damage applies 40% Grievous Wounds to enemy champions for 2 seconds. Dealing 3 consecutive basic attacks to an enemy champion enhances this effect to 60% Grievous Wounds against them until the effect is allowed to elapse.

Guinsoo's Rageblade

Now grants on-hit damage based on critical strike chance, but you can't crit. No longer grants stacking attack speed. No longer grants attack damage, ability power, or penetration.

On-hit builds didn't have many build options since so much of the attack-focused portion of the shop is focused on the crit system. Rather than continue to have on-hit and crit continue fighting for item niches, Guinsoo's Rageblade now acts as a bridge between the crit and on-hit ecosystems, allowing Kog'Maws to access effects like Phantom Dancer or Runaan's Hurricane without wasting stats.

SEETHING STRIKE Every third basic attack applies your on-hit effects twice

Phantom Dancer

No longer has Lifeline. Grants Ghosting, movement speed, and bonus attack speed after consecutive attacks.

Phantom Dancer's defensive niche has been claimed by Immortal Shieldbow, so we're returning Phantom Dancer to its previous purpose as the highest attack and movement speed of the Zeal items. Its new passive emphasizes that Phantom Dancer is a top-tier choice when you can stand and fire in extended fights.

Lord Dominik's Regards

Now has critical strike chance. Deals additional damage against high-health targets.

Lord Dominik's Regards (and OG Last Whisper from years ago) has always occupied an anti-tank niche but has also flip-flopped between marksmen and assassins, always stronger for one class than the other. Situational items like this should feel rewarding to purchase when the occasion arises, meaning their stats need to be appropriately powerful for the class they're meant for. So, Lord Dominik's Regards has acquired some crit and is balanced for marksmen alone, while assassins have the new Serylda's Grudge item above.

Essence Reaver

Now builds out of Sheen and has a Spellblade passive.

The ability-weaving pattern of Sheen has always been fun and popular on some marksman champions, but Trinity Force frequently fell below the viability bar for those champions since it was balanced for fighters. Enter Essence Reaver, which has been revamped to double-down on the fantasy of a spell-slinging basic attacker.

Infinity Edge

Increased critical strike damage now scales with critical strike chance.

Infinity Edge is an iconic and valuable part of the marksman ecosystem, but buying it first most every game left little room for anything else to compete. We've reenvisioned Infinity Edge in a Deathcap-esque form that increases in value as a crit build progresses, allowing it to remain a staple power-spike in crit builds without defining the marksman early game with its awkward build path and lack of utility.

Manamune

Now provides ability haste. Spending mana without hitting a target no longer grants stacks. Mana per stack and transform threshold reduced.

Manamune should be a valuable purchase to AD spellcasters who enjoy mana as well as AD. Ability haste in addition to the Muramana changes should broaden the list of champions who can use this item.

Muramana

Bonus damage now applies to abilities in addition to attacks. No longer consumes mana on proc.

Following the Manamune changes, allowing Muramana to proc on abilities further encourages AD casters to consider a new addition to their item builds. Removing the mana consumption increases clarity and lets users focus more on letting their spells fly.

AP per mana increased. No longer grants ability haste or mana refund on cast. Spending mana without hitting a target no longer grants stacks. Mana per stack and transform threshold reduced.

The previous version of Seraph's offered a power scaling option both offensively and defensively with its shield. We're shifting the Archangel's line to be the purely offensive, greedy option by focusing on its slacking mana and AP fantasy.

Seraph's Embrace

Black Cleaver

Now deals missing health damage against fully stacked targets. No longer grants movement speed on-hit.

Cleave now also procs on abilities and ranged basic attacks. Now grants Omnivamp instead of life steal. No longer grants health regen. Active removed.

Wit's End

Now grants movement speed on-hit instead of healing.

With a few more healing options in the mythic space, we had to be judicious with other sources of healing. Replaced with movement speed to offer light fighters (Fiora, Yi, Ekko, etc) another powerful form of utility. Now with more AD to broaden appeal among fighters.

Death's Dance was the 1-stop-shop for everything fighters needed.

TOTAL COST 3000 gold
BUILD PATH Serrated Dirk + Vampiric Scepter + 1000 gold
ATTACK DAMAGE 50
LETHALITY 10
PHYSICAL VAMP 12%

Effects

FRENZY While near one or fewer visible enemy champions gain 8 lethality and 20-80% (levels 1-18) attack speed, decaying over 3 seconds if other enemy champions get too close.

Legendary Items Balance Changes

Some items are only being returned to fit into preseason-the biggest change you'll find in any of the sections below is the addition or removal of stat types, but not entire unique effects (with Mikael's' regen-granting Harmony passive as an exception). As with the other Legendaries, keep in mind that Mythic passives add additional stats that aren't listed here, so things that look like flat nerfs are at least in part adjusting for that extra power.

Jungle Items & Changes

We want junglers to be able to engage with the item system instead of being forced to purchase the same dull item every game, especially with the Mythic item system making your first item so important. We're taking cues from last year's well-received update to support items and letting junglers progress toward their Smite without having to spend more money. That puts them on even footing with the other four positions in terms of being able to start on their Mythic right away.

Also, we snuck some jungle camp changes into this section so junglers can process everything specific to the role in one place. "You're welcome" or "we're sorry," depending on whether that helped or confused you personally.

Hailblade


The blue one.
COST 350 gold
OMNIVAMP AGAINST MONSTERS 12%
TOOTH & NAIL Damaging monsters burns them for 60 (+10% AP)(+2% bonus health)(+5% bonus AD) magic damage over 5 seconds
CHILLING PATH Smiting 5 times consumes this item and upgrades your Smite to Chilling Smite
HUNTSMAN Killing large monsters grants bonus experience
LEYLINE WALKER Regen up to 8-18 mana (levels 1-18) per second when in the jungle or river

Chilling Smite

AGAINST CHAMPIONS When Smiting champions, Chilling Smite deals 20-156 true damage and steals 20% of their movement speed for 2 seconds

Emberknife


The red one. We're also cleaning up Challenging Smite to make it a bit more intuitive.
COST 350 gold
OMNIVAMP AGAINST MONSTERS 12%
TOOTH & NAIL Damaging monsters burns them for 60 (+10% AP) (+2% bonus health) (+5% bonus AD) magic damage over 5 seconds.
CHALLENGING PATH Smiting 5 times consumes this item and upgrades your Smite to Challenging Smite
HUNTSMAN Killing large monsters grants bonus experience
LEYLINE WALKER Regen up to 8-18 (levels 1-18) mana per second when in the jungle or river.

Challenging Smite

AGAINST CHAMPIONS When Smiting champions, Challenging Smite marks them for 4 seconds. During this time, your damaging attacks and abilities deal 48-125 bonus true damage to them over 2.5 seconds (refreshing but not stacking) and you take 20% reduced damage from the Smited enemy.
ABILITIES Abilities now apply and refresh the burn alongside basic attacks
CLARITY Challenging Smite's damage reduction now has VFX and displays the amount reduced as combat text

Jungle Camp Adjustments

Overall, our aim is to slightly improve pathing diversity and make the camps feel distinct.

We're running a consistency pass to remove some arcane optimizations and rules that aren't apparent in game. Gromp and Scuttle in particular are getting changes to emphasize their unique identities. In Scuttle's case, she'll also be a little less costly to lose since you're not losing a chunk of sustain.

Epic Items

Epic items are the tier below Legendary: They're the mid-tier components of Legendary and Mythic items that build out of basic items. We're ensuring they serve their role as valuable building blocks, offering incremental stats and effects that smooth your progression toward bigger purchases.

Like the Legendaries, we're providing blank-slate presentations of these Epics to give you a clean read on when you'll want to pick them up. New and updated have been mixed together since there aren't as many.
new

Noonquiver

Marksman champions suffer from awkward early-game components that leave them missing either attack damage or attack speed, both of which are critical for them to feel powerful. So, we created Noonquiver-an Epic that specifically builds into marksman Mythics and features both stats. Noonquiver also amplifies marksman PvE capabilities to provide the early lane management marksman champions crave without sending their PvP power over the top. Lastly, by giving it a smooth build path of smaller parts, it avoids the lane snowballing issue B.F. Sword had if you were forced to back before saving up 1300 gold.
TOTAL COST 1300 gold
BUILD PATH Longsword + Dagger + Longsword + 300 gold

Basic, Starter & Support Items

Finally, we've got our basic, starter, and support items. The ones that don't have any components of their own.

Tear of the Goddess


Moving Tear into the Starting Item space to serve as a greedy, scaling option for spellcasters. The stacking mechanic has been changed to discourage empty spell spamming and encourage opportunistic trading.
TOTAL COST 400 gold
MANA 150
FOCUS Attacks deal an additional 5 physical damage to minions
MANA CHARGE Strike a target with an ability to consume a charge and gain 3 bonus mana, up to a maximum of 450 bonus mana. Bonus mana doubled if the target is a champion. Gain a new mana charge every 8 seconds (max 4).

Dark Seal


Making Seal a better option for those who don't need mana, and unbinding its strength from potions.
ABILITY POWER 15
HEALTH 40
DO OR DIE Champion assists and kills grant 1 and 2 stacks of Glory respectively, up to 10 stacks. Lose 4 stacks on death.
GLORY Grants 5 ability power per stack of Glory.

Doran's Blade


Slightly broadening our starting item options so they're more favorable to those who use more spells and have mixed damage types.
ATTACK DAMAGE 8
HEALTH 80
WARFORGED Grants 2.5% Omnivamp

Doran's Ring


Opening up Doran's ring to non-mana users and bringing back the old last-hitting skill test.
ABILITY POWER 15
HEALTH 70
MANA RESTORE Killing a minion restores 6 mana. Excess mana (all 6 of it if you can't gain mana) is converted to healing, at a 50% rate.

Support Item Balance Changes

To ensure support builds are influenced similarly by their Mythic passives as other roles, we're counting the fully upgraded forms as Legendaries but reducing their innate stats so they don't become more powerful in the process. We're also buffing Spoils of War and Tribute so supports can bring their Mythics online closer to everyone else.

NAME Ninja Tabi Plated Steelcaps

Removed Items

Last on the list for our items world tour is paying respects to the items leaving the shop.

Hextech GLP-800

Now a Mythic item (Everfrost). This one's not as much a 1-to-1 Mythic-ification like the others since Everfrost's active is more defensive and less pick-oriented. If you're looking for a slow cone, though, you'll find a familiar toy here, with some extra use cases.


Luden's Echo

Now a Mythic item (Luden's Tempest)


Liandry's Torment

Now a Mythic item (Liandry's Anguish)


Hextech Protobelt-01

Now a Mythic item (Hextech Rocketbelt)


Sunfire Cape

Now a Mythic item (Sunfire Aegis)


Righteous Glory

Now a Mythic item (Turbo Chemtank)


Iceborn Gauntlet

Now a Mythic item (Frostfire Gauntlet)


Duskblade of Draktharr

Now a Mythic item


Trinity Force

Now a Mythic item


Shurelya's Reverie

Now a Mythic item (Shurelya's Battlesong)


Locket of the Iron Solari

Now a Mythic item


Adaptive Helm

Helm was too niche, only countering a few champions but to a major degree. Also didn't feel powerful even when it was.


Athene's Unholy Grail

Athene's was constantly a mandatory item for certain champions and gave much more power than we could support.


Frozen Mallet

Mallet was either much too niche when balanced, or way too strong when purchased by more than one or two champs.


Hextech Gunblade

Gunblade completely overwhelmed build options for a small pool of champions but saw very little use outside of that pool. It was also one of the more frustrating items in the shop.


Spellbinder

Spellbinder was hard to use well and hard to know whether you used it well.


Rod of Ages

RoA's time-scaling fantasy didn't feel impactful on a Mythic for a first purchase and didn't feel realistic as a later purchase. It also overlapped in fantasy with Archangel's, but was the less exciting of the two.


Statikk Shiv

Shiv's chain lightning effect was either underwhelming when balanced or too strong when it felt good.


Twin Shadows

Twin Shadows was too powerful and playstyle-warping when tuned to be purchasable.


Jaurim's Fist

Unlike Seeker's Armguard, whose armor stacking mechanic gives physical damage dealers a window to fight mages in lane before full stacks, the health stacking mechanic on Jaurim's isn't doing anything valuable. It's been largely replaced with the new Phage as a health+AD component.


Chalice of Harmony

Chalice was redundant with other mana Epics that were filling out the shop (especially with the removal of Athene's). The other options were more needed for recipes.


Bilgewater Cutlass

Actives are high mindshare, so culling them in places they weren't doing exciting things seemed to work well. Blade of the Ruined King lost this active and Hextech Gunblade was removed, so Cutlass no longer had a reason to have an active, which was the main reason it existed to begin with.


Catalyst of Aeons

Catalyst offered early access to the Eternity passive previously held by Rod of Ages and Abyssal Mask. With Rod's removal and Mask's update, the Eternity passive is gone and Catalyst no longer has a role to fill.

Runes

Conqueror


Streamlining Conqueror's role as a damage-oriented rune by shifting its power from sustain to Adaptive Force.
ADAPTIVE FORCE PER STACK 1.7 - 4.2 (levels 1-18), 20.4 - 50.4 at max stacks 2 - 5 (levels 1-18), 24 - 60 at max stacks
HEALING AT MAX STACKS 15% (8% for ranged champions) 9% (6% for ranged champions)

Legend: Bloodline


Toning back the overall sustain of Legend: Bloodline as its life steal was dominating the choice structure within the Precision tree and having a bigger impact on rune and item builds than a minor rune should, allowing champs to delay or altogether forego sustain purchases.
MAXIMUM LEGEND STACKS 20 stacks (12% life steal) 15 stacks (9% life steal)

Ravenous Hunter


Similar to Bloodline and Conqueror, lowering the overall amount of free sustain within the rune system to open up more choices within the rune and item systems.
HEALING Heal for 1.5% (+2.5% per Bounty Hunter stack) of the damage dealt by your abilities, on-hit effects and items 1% Omnivamp (+2% per Bounty Hunter stack)

Presence of Mind


Presence of Mind's permanent stats were single-handedly solving resource issues. We're reworking the rune to be more in-line with other minor runes and tailored towards champions who prefer sustained combat.
EFFECT After a 1-second delay, champion takedowns restore 20% of your maximum mana or energy and increase maximum mana by 100 or maximum energy by 10, stacking up to 5 times (max +500 mana or +50 energy) Damaging an enemy champion increases your mana regeneration by 1.5-11 (levels 1-18) (80% for ranged) mana per second for 4 seconds. Energy users gain 1.5 energy per second instead. Takedowns restore 15% of your maximum mana or energy.

Transcendence


Updating Transcendence to still provide for spell-happy casters and anyone else in need of a little boost while fitting into the new uncapped haste system.
EFFECT Gain 10% CDR when you reach level 10. Each percent of CDR exceeding the CDR limit is converted to an adaptive bonus Gain bonuses upon reaching the following levels: LEVEL 5 +5 ability haste; LEVEL 8 +5 ability haste; LEVEL 11 On champion takedown, reduce the remaining cooldown of basic abilities by 20%.

Cosmic Insight


Similar to Transcendence, Cosmic Insight has been updated to function in the new haste system. The rune is now more streamlined to focus on item haste and summoner spell haste to reduce some of the low-cost haste in the rune system.
removedCOOLDOWN REDUCTION No longer increases your CDR cap or grants CDR
ITEM HASTE 5% active item CDR 10 item haste (applies to all item cooldowns)
SUMMONER SPELL HASTE 5% summoner spell CDR 15 summoner spell haste

Ingenious Hunter


Updating Ingenious Hunter values to work with the haste system as well as broadening its use cases to all items with cooldowns so it should feel a little more usable than before.
INGENUITY Reduce the cooldown of item actives by 15% (+5% per Bounty Hunter stack) Gain 10 item haste (+5 per Bounty Hunter stack). Item haste affects ALL item cooldowns, not just actives.

Ability Haste Rune Stat

The CDR rune stat had to scale up over time to avoid letting champions reach the cap too quickly. Now that we're using ability haste, it gets to provide more immediate benefit.
STAT GAIN +1-10% CDR (levels 1-18) 8 ability haste

Time Warp Tonic


Small clarity update to Time Warp Tonic as the cooldown on consumables was occasionally confusing to players for a minor rune.
removedPACE YOURSELF No longer puts the consumable on a short cooldown. If consumables are stacked, the instant restoration is applied after the duration of the initial consumable ends.

Preseason Champion Adjustments

Caitlyn

Headshot damage from crit chance decreased.

The math behind this is super gross, but the gist is that Headshot's bonus damage scales off Infinity Edge's crit damage in a way that completely ignored preseason's systemic crit damage reduction. We're baking that systemic change into Headshot's calculations, though Cait is still arguably buffed relative to other marksmen since new IE's greater maximum crit damage increase washes out most of this nerf at full build.

Passive - Headshot

HEADSHOT DAMAGE FROM LEVELS 50/75/100% AD (levels 1/7/13) (unchanged)
HEADSHOT DAMAGE FROM CRIT CHANCE (1.25 * (100 + Half your bonus Critical Damage percent) * Critical Chance)% AD (1.25 * (87.5 + Half your bonus Critical Damage percent) * Critical Chance)% AD

Jhin

Passive crit damage reduction and crit-to-AD conversion decreased

We still want Jhin's crits to feel noticeably different from his non-crits, so we're nerfing the AD he gets from crit chance instead of his crit damage.

Passive - Whisper

CRIT DAMAGE REDUCTION 25% (crits deal 150% AD) 14% (crits still deal 150% AD)
CRIT CHANCE TO AD CONVERSION 40% 30%

Senna

Passive crit damage reduction and crit chance per 20 souls decreased. R now collects Mist Wraiths on cast.

Bringing Senna into the crit system by having her crits happen less, but hit even stronger than before.

Passive - Absolution

CRIT DAMAGE REDUCTION 35% (crits deal 130% AD) 14% (crits deal 150% AD)
CRIT CHANCE PER 20 SOULS 15% 10%

R - Dawning Shadow

PICKUP Now collects Mist Wraiths. Mist Wraiths still only spawn near Senna.

Tryndamere

Passive crit chance flattened.

Making sure Tryndamere doesn't waste stats at max Fury with his crit build.

Passive - Battle Fury

CRIT CHANCE PER FURY POINT 0.35/0.4/0.45/0.5% (levels 1/6/11/16) 0.4%

Yasuo

Passive now converts crit strike chance above 100% to bonus AD.

Now that the crit system offers more interesting options and comes in 20% increments, we wanted to make sure Yasuo wasn't wasting stats or getting locked out of exciting items because of his passive.

Passive - Way of the Wanderer

newOVERCAPPED Critical strike chance above 100% is converted into 0.5 bonus AD per 1% additional critical strike chance. (Reminder: Way of the Wanderer doubles crit chance from other sources).

Yone

Passive now converts crit strike chance above 100% to bonus AD.

Now that the crit system offers more interesting options and comes in 20% increments, we wanted to make sure Yone wasn't wasting stats or getting locked out of exciting items because of his passive.

Passive - Way of the Hunter

newOVERCAPPED Critical strike chance above 100% is converted into 0.5 bonus AD per 1% additional critical strike chance. (Reminder: Way of the Hunter doubles crit chance from other sources).

Akali

Q cost decreased later.

Adjusting Akali for the loss of Hextech Gunblade and Presence of Mind's increased Energy pool.

Q - Five-Point Strike

COST 120/115/110/105/100 energy 120/110/100/90/80 energy

Katarina

Passive, E, and R now apply on-hit effects. R now deals hybrid damage and scales with attack speed.

With the loss of Gunblade and the lack of hybrid damage among Mythics, Katarina needed help to keep her identity as an assassin in the new item system. We're helping her adapt to the new shop by further differentiating AD and AP Katarina builds, adding new scaling hooks that let her access the on-hit system. The Katarina you know and love is still here, but without Gunblade dictating her build, her daggers might not look the same every time you see her.

Passive - Voracity

newON-HIT Dagger slash applies on-hit effects

E - Shunpo

newON-HIT Applies on-hit effects

R - Death Lotus

Reminder: Kat throws 15 daggers per ult.
MAGIC DAMAGE 25/37.5/50 (+19% AP) (+22% bonus AD) per dagger 25/37.5/50 (+19% AP) per dagger
newPHYSICAL DAMAGE 15% (+9.9% attack speed) bonus AD per dagger
newON-HIT Each dagger applies on-hit effects at 25% efficiency

Kayle

Passive bonus attack speed now scales with AP.

The landscape around Kayle is shifting dramatically and AP Kayle in particular may take a while to find replacements for previous favorites like Hextech Gunblade. We're lending AP builds some aid and ensuring that both forms of Kayle can hyperscale into late game.

Passive - Divine Ascent

BONUS ATTACK SPEED 6% per Enrage stack 6% (+2% AP) per Enrage stack

Ornn

Masterworks now upgrade Mythics. Ornn now gains increased bonus health in addition to armor and magic resist. Bonus defenses now increase per Masterwork he creates.

We're tying Ornn's Masterwork system into the Mythic system, opening up build diversity for both him and his allies by ensuring everyone can get an upgrade no matter their build. We're also giving Ornn some smithy power now that he only gets to upgrade one of his own items.

Passive - Living Forge

FORGEABLE ITEMS Curated List All Mythic items
MASTERWORK UPGRADE VALUE Dependent on item ~1000 gold
MASTERWORK LIMIT 2 for Ornn, 1 for allies 1 for Ornn and allies (since Ornn is still subject to the 1 Mythic limit)
STAT BONUS Ornn gains an additional 10% bonus armor and magic resistance Ornn gains an additional 10% bonus health, armor, and magic resistance
newCALLOUSED HANDS Ornn gains an additional 4% bonus health, armor, and magic resistance for each Mythic item he upgrades into a Masterwork

Viktor

Hex Core removed; Viktor now upgrades his abilities by earning champion takedowns and last-hits. E damage increased. Mana growth increased.

Making Viktor embrace and engage with the new itemization system while also giving him a bit more oomph now that his Hex Core isn't there to amp him up.

Base Stats

MANA GROWTH 25 45

Passive - Glorious Evolution

removedHEX CORE Viktor no longer starts the game with an upgradable Hex Core.
newHARVEST Viktor harvests 1 Hex Fragments from minion and monster kills, 5 from large minion kills, and 25 from champion takedowns. He can spend 100 Hex Fragments to upgrade a basic ability. Once all three basic abilities have been upgraded, Chaos Storm is upgraded automatically.

E - Death Ray

LASER RATIO 60% 70%
AFTERSHOCK RATIO 70% 80%

Champion Mana Adjustments

Between mana changes to items like Tear, Sheen, Lich Bane, and the lack of mana on most Mythic items, we're giving the following champions a +20 increase to mana growth:

Amumu

Anivia

Camille

Cassiopeia

Cho'Gath

Corki

Darius

Ekko

Ezreal

Other Champion Changes

Brand


While our last changes helped bring Brand back into the midlane, he's a little too strong in Average play for both mid and support. Dampening down his early game damage to bring him back in line.

Passive - Blaze

MARKED EXPLOSION DAMAGE 10-14% (levels 1-9) 10-14% (levels 1-17)

E - Conflagration

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

Amumu


Similar to Brand, we're focusing on knocking down some of the mummy's power in Average play by pulling back on some of his durability.

Base Stats

HEALTH GROWTH 84 80
ARMOR 33 30

Elise


Opening up Elise's build diversity with the new system.

Q - Venomous Bite

newON-HIT Now applies on-hit effects

Seraphine


We're pushing the distinction between mid and support Seraphine. Mid Sera, who will be higher level throughout the game, will have better access to scaling damage via the Passive and Q changes and can now use E more comfortably for waveclear when needed. Support Sera won't be able to hit those same levels or damage numbers, but will still be able to lean on E-max to provide consistent CC for her team.

Base stats

BASE MANA REGEN 10 8

Passive - Stage Presence

NOTE RATIO 7.5% AP 6/7/8/9% AP (levels 1/6/11/16)

Q - High Note

E - Beat Drop

BASE DAMAGE 60/85/110/135/160 60/80/100/120/140
DAMAGE TO MINIONS 60/70/80/90/100% 100%

Twitch

Deadly Venom damage and W slow now scale with AP. Contaminate's AP scaling now deals magic damage.

Following up a prior buff that didn't actually put AP Twitch anywhere near the mark of playability. These changes are geared toward a playstyle of quickly stacking Deadly Venom and detonating it, then rat-tailing it out to reset. It'll scale worse than AD Twitch (who isn't sacrificing anything for these changes, by the way) and have less explosive openers with Spray and Pray than crit-based versions, but is hopefully an exciting alternative option for Twitch players.

P - Deadly Venom

newDAMAGE RATIO 3% AP damage per second, per stack (max 108% AP for 6 stacks over 6 seconds)

W - Venom Cask

newSLOW RATIO 6% AP

E - Contaminate

AP SCALING DAMAGE 33.3% AP physical damage per Deadly Poison stack (max 200% AP for 6 stacks) 33.3% AP magic damage per Deadly Poison stack (max 200% AP for 6 stacks)

Volibear

Passive now scales with AP. E deals more damage to minions late.

With AP fighter items coming into the game we're polishing this bear's AP playstyle to be a little more viable. His extended fights and farming should be bumped up enough with these changes for magebear to be a better opt-in option.

Passive - The Relentless Storm

ATTACK SPEED PER STACK 5% 5% (+4% AP)

E - Sky Splitter

DAMAGE TO MINIONS 150/250/350/450/550 150/300/450/600/750

Incoming Heal Indicator

We originally billed this as a quality of life change but have seen a bunch of questions, so let's talk about it now. For abilities and effects with delayed healing, it can be hard to know mid-fight how much health you (or your opponent) will get, leading to situations where you back out from a fight you could've won or stay in a fight you're about to lose. This change makes that decision clearer by indicating the amount of incoming heals on champion health bars. We're adjusting the visualization of this effect based on feedback so far (like toning down the brightness of the incoming health to make it easier to distinguish from current health); let us know if you think further changes are needed.

In 10.23, we added the indicator for Evelynn's Passive - Demon Shade, Karma's W - Renewal, and Soraka's Q - Starcall heal over time both on herself and when transferred to an ally via W - Astral Infusion. And as a recap, we added the following in 10.22: Seraphine's W - Surround Sound Vladimir's R - Hemoplague, Redemption, and ARAM health packs.

ARAM Balance Changes

Some adjustments to ARAM to account for the wider item changes that are happening.

Game Pacing and Gold Income

NEARBY MINION DEATH GOLD 5 gold 6 gold
AMBIENT GOLD Increased by 10%

Ranked Updates

This preseason, we're making a couple updates on the Summoner's Rift Ranked system to make sure the placement process and climb is as informed and intuitive as possible.

First, brand new accounts entering Ranked for the first time will now take into account additional variables to ensure a more accurate original placement.

Next, in order to smooth out progression speed bumps, we're removing promotion series for interdivision transitions. This means that going from division IV to division I for any given rank will be automatic when you reach 100 LP, and any additional LP rolls into the next division. Consequently, demotion protection between divisions will also be removed so that losing a game at 0 LP will result in moving down a division.

Last but not least, we're removing the ability to duo queue at ranks Master and above to highlight competitive prowess and improve matchmaking at the top of the ladder.

League Client Updates

Another long list of League Client bugfixes and QoL changes this patch, so we're tucking them into its own section!
  • Memory leaks should now be fixed in the following areas of the client, providing improved reliability:
    • When a player views their profile, or other profiles
    • When a player open the personalized offers tab
    • When a player visits the TFT party lobby
    • When a player visits match history
    • When a player visits the clubs tab
    • When a player views a hovercard
    • When a player visits the TFT hub
    • When a player navigates among main tabs
    • When a player enters a chat room
    • Opening a champion skin chroma
    • Every time the social panel is shown (client start up, and after each game)
    • When a player opens runes editor (in Champ Select + Collections)
    • In Champ Select (fixing a chat service observer leak)
    • In Champ Select (premade voice observer leak)
  • The rune page should now load faster, along with overall rendering improvements
  • End-of-game screen should no longer freeze when getting back into the client
  • Summoner spell and ward skin selections have been reimplemented to reduce memory leaks. The associated animations in champ select have been removed as part of this work.
