Q cooldown decreased at early ranks. Q damage ratio increased.
Patch 8.9's mana changes hit Anivia harder than most mages, so we're looking to give her some power back. Rather than return her previous level of waveclear, we're looking to up her potential in fights.
Q - Flash FrostCOOLDOWN 12/11/10/9/8 seconds ⇒ 10/9.5/9/8.5/8 seconds DAMAGE RATIO 0.4 ability power ⇒ 0.45 ability power (reminder: this applies on both passthrough and detonation)
Base attack damage decreased. R cooldown decreased at early ranks.
The new emphasis on early jungle scrapping is pretty much Graves' happy place, and it's left other champions six feet under. Dialing back his early dueling and putting a longer window on his full combo should slow the snowball a bit.
Base StatsATTACK DAMAGE 69 ⇒ 66
R - Collateral DamageCOOLDOWN 110/85/60 seconds ⇒ 120/90/60 seconds
R cooldown decreased at later ranks, but stealth duration decreased. Evolved R grants additional casts and stealth duration; no longer grants stealth or movement speed in brush.
One thing every assassin needs is a way to dance in and out of a fight and safely put down damage. For Kha'Zix, that's the stealth from Void Assault . The brush stealth on his evolved R is currently giving far too much of a different strength, though: the ability to sneak around the map relatively undetected. We're removing that evolution bonus in favor of giving Kha'Zix more R casts—and longer stealth—when he's upgraded his ultimate.
R - Void AssaultCOOLDOWN 100/90/80 seconds ⇒ 100/85/70 seconds STEALTH DURATION 1.5 seconds ⇒ 1.25 seconds EVOLVED STEALTH DURATION 1.5 seconds ⇒ 2 seconds EVOLVED CASTS 2 within 10 seconds ⇒ 3 within 10 seconds removedBRUSH CHECK No longer passively grants stealth or movement speed when entering brush
Mark respawn time decreased. First mark spawns earlier. Rift Scuttle assists now correctly collect marks.
The increased importance of Scuttle Crab has made it harder for Kindred to gather marks.
Passive - Mark of the KindredMARK RESPAWN TIME 50 seconds ⇒ 40 seconds FIRST MARK SPAWN 2:20 ⇒ 2:05 BUGFIX Assists on Rift Scuttler now appropriately collect marks
LeBlanc can now queue up casts of W and RW (in either order).
W - DistortionONE-TWO LeBlanc can now queue up W - Distortion and R - Mimic'd Distortion
Energy restore on passive increased. Q, W, and E now apply cooldown reduction for the duration of their reactivation time.
Recent changes to Warding Trinket have left Lee Sin with fewer playmaking opportunities. Making sure he benefits fully from cooldown reduction should give him more to do with his baseline kit, and we also want to make sure he has more access to the energy needed to do so.
Passive - FlurryENERGY RESTORED ON FIRST HIT 20/25/30 ⇒ 20/30/40 ENERGY RESTORED ON SECOND HIT 10/12.5/15 ⇒ 10/15/20

For a support with so much hard engage, the sustain Rakan brings to lane is a bit overbearing.

You're probably just going to want to read this one.
Taliyah has a lot of strengths that are great in pro play, and just okay elsewhere. A lot of that comes from Q's waveclear, so the bulk of our mechanical changes focus on that ability (with tuning elsewhere). Taliyah will have to work harder to shove a wave and roam so that her opposing laner has more room to punish those roams. We're also decreasing the terrain control she brings from her ultimate, as it's bringing too much utility beyond just its roam strength.

R - Weaver's WallWALL DURATION 6/7/8 seconds ⇒ 5 seconds
Collision radius decreased. Base attack speed increased. Passive damage to monsters increased early. R no longer roots Urgot while he is grinding a champion to death.
We're making Urgot a bit more fluid to play and stripping some of the anti-jungling tuning from his kit.
Base StatsCOLLISION RADIUS 80 ⇒ 50 BASE ATTACK SPEED 0.595 ⇒ 0.625

Q discharge damage increased at later ranks. R damage ratio increased.
Patch 8.9's mana changes hit Viktor harder than most mages, so we're looking to give him some power back by upping his damage when he commits to a fight.
Q - Siphon PowerDISCHARGE DAMAGE 20/40/60/80/100 ⇒ 20/50/80/110/140
R - Chaos StormRATIO PER TICK 0.6 ability power ⇒ 0.7 ability power
Base attack damage growth decreased. E slow decreased.
The scuttle changes increased the value of early fights, and Xin Zhao definitely excels in that world. Having a strong early game isn't the problem, but being able to translate that so easily into a strong mid-game is concerning. We're toning down his offensive scaling and his ability to stick to opponents and force them to fight him so he'll have to work harder for that mid-game edge.
Base StatsATTACK DAMAGE GROWTH 3.3 ⇒ 3
E - Audacious ChargeSLOW 50% ⇒ 30%
E root duration increased
Zyra contributes slightly less in skirmishes than we'd like, but we're definitely not comfortable increasing her already-high damage. Some extra crowd control should give her more of an impact in those small fights.
E - Grasping RootsROOT DURATION 0.75/1/1.25/1.5/1.75 seconds ⇒ 1/1.25/1.5/1.75/2 seconds
Marksman Base Stat Adjustments
The dominant strategy in bot lane has, over time, become sustaining through lane phase and scaling up into teamfights. Between health regen and Fleet Footwork, it's pretty hard to put the hurt on marksmen in a way they can't just passively recover from.. This means aggressive bot laners ( whether early game bully marksmen or supports who want to poke or go all-in) feel like they have no home.
Weakening marksman sustain (health regen here, Fleet Footwork below) means damage will stick on marksmen, making 2v2 fighting a more successful prospect for the stronger bot lane. Shifting some durability from armor into health should also let aggressive marksmen like Draven and Lucian shine a bit harder in the early game.
Finally, we're nerfing marksman base attack damage by 4 and pushing that damage into their growth stat, with the breakeven point around level 9. Though that might seem counterintuitive with our goals above, it means aggressive non-marksmen (ex. Leona, Brand) won't be chipped down by marksman basic attacks as quickly—giving them more opportunities to secure presence in the lane.

Hunter's Machete Compensation
Base attack damage decreased. Bonus attack speed at level 1 increased.
Compensation for the Machete changes last patch.

NocturneATTACK DAMAGE 67.21 ⇒ 65 newBONUS ATTACK SPEED AT LEVEL 1 8%
Diana is getting a similar compensation, but applied to her passive, rather than her base stats.MOONSILVER BLADE ATTACK SPEED BONUS 20/50/60/70/80/90% (at ranks 0/1/2/3/4/5 of E - Moonfall) ⇒ 30/50/60/70/80/90% (at ranks 0/1/2/3/4/5 of E - Moonfall) new
For upfront burst and lots of kiting.
Marksman itemization is pretty focus on marksmen who want to stand still and basic attack. With Stormrazor, we're introducing an item for marksmen with longer pauses between attacks, whether they're kiting or just have long attack cooldowns (looking at you, Jhin).TOTAL COST 3200 gold BUILD PATH B.F. Sword + Pickaxe + Dagger + 725 gold ATTACK DAMAGE 70 ATTACK SPEED 30% UNIQUE PASSIVE Storm's Edge: If you haven't attacked in the last 3 seconds (scaling down with attack speed), your next basic attack will critically strike for 160% damage (+1% per 1.5% critical strike chance, max 200%) and grant 10% movement speed for 1.75 seconds updated
Crit? Try more crit.
We're making Infinity Edge into a true scaling item for marksmen, one which amps up the power of critical strike but isn't itself a critical strike item.ICONIC Icon has been updated! TOTAL COST 3400 gold ⇒ 3700 gold BUILD PATH B.F. Sword + Pickaxe + Cloak of Agility + 425 gold ⇒ B.F. Sword + B.F.

The ultimate power spike.
Essence Reaver was intended to be the alternative late-game scaling item for marksmen who care more about spell casts. However, it turned out that once you had Essence Reaver, you also wanted Infinity Edge, and at that point, you also want a Zeal item, and at that point you might as well build up to 100% crit. The overall effect was a core build of 4 items that didn't allow spellslinger marksmen much choice at all.TOTAL COST 3400 gold ⇒ 3200 gold BUILD PATH B.F. Sword + Caulfield's Warhammer + Cloak of Agility + 200 gold ⇒ B.F. Sword + Caulfield's Warhammer + Sapphire Crystal + 450 removedCRITICAL STRIKE CHANCE 20% removedUNIQUE PASSIVE Critical strikes restore 3% of your maximum mana newUNIQUE PASSIVE Basic attacks restore 1% of missing mana newUNIQUE PASSIVE After you cast your ultimate, your next basic attack within 10 seconds grants Essence Flare for 8 seconds, granting 30% attack speed and causing basic attacks to refund 20% of your remaining non-ultimate cooldowns (30 second cooldown)
We're reshaping Essence Reaver around a new power spike, allowing spellcasting marksmen to double down on their spell-slinging fantasy and unleash their spells in a rapid barrage.
Bonus armor penetration shifted to total armor penetration (and decreased).
The problem with an armor penetration item that only feels good against armor stackers is that most champs don't feel good about getting it early to ensure their damage stays relevant as enemies build armor (they want to be killing squishy targets instead). But once tanks really armor up, damage dealers feel bad if they didn't purchase Last Whisper earlier. We're moving Last Whisper into a middle ground so it'll still scale against tanks but feel like less of a dead-end against other squishies.ARMOR PENETRATION 35% target's bonus armor ⇒ 10% target's total armor
Attack damage decreased. Bonus armor penetration shifted to total armor penetration. Bonus damage against higher-health targets removed.
Total armor penetration is stronger than bonus, meaning LDR scales better with itself. To to keep the focus on the armor penetration rather than raw damage output, we're trimming some attack damage and pushing the price point higher.TOTAL COST 2600 gold ⇒ 2800 gold BUILD PATH Pickaxe + Last Whisper + 625 gold ATTACK DAMAGE 50 ⇒ 40 removedGIANT SLAYER Grants 0-20% (based on health difference) bonus physical damage against enemy champions with greater maximum health than you.

Lord Dominik's was the only item that used this, so we're retiring it.

Critical Strike Items
Average cost of critical strike increased.
With Infinity Edge amplifying critical strike significantly, we're pushing its price point up.
Brawler's GlovesTOTAL COST 400 gold ⇒ 600 gold newONLY TWO HANDS Brawler's Gloves' critical strike chance is now unique
Cloak of Agility
The Brawler's Gloves changes pushed these two items too close together. A spiky glove feels more crit-like than a poncho, so we're retiring Cloak of Agility.

Overall, the cost of marksman builds are up slightly, so we feel safe making lifesteal items cheaper.
Blade of the Ruined KingTOTAL COST 3400 gold ⇒ 3200 gold
The BloodthirsterTOTAL COST 3700 gold ⇒ 3500 gold
Magic resist increased. Base shield value increased. Shield no longer scales with bonus magic resist.
Most champions who like Maw of Malmortius aren't looking to stack resistances, so we're tweaking its shield value to not scale with future magic resist accordingly.MAGIC RESIST 45 ⇒ 50 SHIELD VALUE 300 + 100% of bonus magic resist ⇒ 350
Cost increased. Armor increased.
We wanted to allow marksmen who face heavy physical damage to get a Chain Vest (rather than just Cloth Armor), knowing they'd eventually build it into something. Guardian Angel was a natural choice, even if it required a higher price point.TOTAL COST 2400 gold ⇒ 2800 gold BUILD PATH B.F. Sword + Cloth Armor + Stopwatch + 200 gold ⇒ B.F.

Enhanced minions are highly resistant to magic and physical damage rather than entirely immune to magic damage only.

Movement speed decreased. Cost increased. Base mana regen added. Active cooldown increased.
Shurelya's Reverie has emerged as too reliable a rush on certain champions who want it for selfish reasons (rather than as a supportive, team-oriented purchase) Singed and Vladimir among them. We're shifting the stat profile slightly to make it more attractive to supportive champions and slightly less compelling as a selfish buy.TOTAL COST 2100 gold ⇒ 2250 gold BUILD PATH Kindlegem + Aether Wisp + 450 gold ⇒ Kindlegem + Aether Wisp + Faerie Charm + 475 gold MOVEMENT SPEED 8% ⇒ 5% BASE MANA REGEN 0% ⇒ 100% ACTIVE COOLDOWN 60 seconds ⇒ 90 seconds

Lost Chapter is too expensive for a first component on junglers. Shifting Runic Echoes to build out of Fiendish Codex will give mage junglers an earlier power spike.BUILD PATH Lost Chapter + 325 gold ⇒ Fiendish Codex + Mana Crystal + 375 gold TOTAL COST 2625 gold (unchanged) ABILITY POWER 60 ⇒ 80
Fleet Footwork nerfs, a new Domination keystone, and two new minor runes!
For more context, view the Marksman Stat Adjustment section. TL;DR, marksmen have access to a ton of sustain in the laning phase, which makes the choice between early and late game too tilted towards late game, and decreases the overall impact of laning decisions (like poke/bullying). Weakening the heal ranged champions get from Fleet Footwork should go a long way towards making trades feel more meaningful.HASTE 30% ⇒ 20% removedCRIT HEAL No longer gives additional healing from critical strikes PERCENT HEAL ON MINIONS 60/30% (melee/ranged) ⇒ 100/20% (melee/ranged) HEAL ABILITY POWER RATIO 0.4 ability power ⇒ 0.5 ability power
Hail of Blades
One of the goals of runes is to give champions options about what tree they go into based on how they want to play. Domination is a tree about burst, which should make it appealing to some of the burstier marksmen, but there is no real keystone for them. Hail of Blades should help spell-based marksmen who want to lay down a swift chunk have a keystone to promote that playstyle.HAIL OF BLADES Gain 50-100% (at levels 1-18) attack speed for the first three attacks made against enemy champions. NOW NOT LATER If more than 1.5 seconds elapses between attacks this effect will end CANT STOP WONT STOP Hail of Blades allows you to temporarily exceed the attack speed limit COOLDOWN 5 seconds out of combat
We've been looking into changing Ultimate Hat for awhile. As a rune based around a spike of power (a champion's ultimate), it's always felt like an exciting option for Domination. We're bringing it in line with the Hunter paradigm and have created a replacement for Ultimate Hat below: Nimbus Cloak.ULTIMATE HUNTER Your ultimate gains 5% reduced cooldown, plus an additional 2% per Bounty Hunter stack BOUNTY HUNTER Earn a Bounty Hunter stack the first time you get a takedown on each enemy champion
Battle mages should feel good about a rune that helps them get (or stay) in a fight when they push their go button.NIMBUS CLOAK Shortly after casting your Ultimate, gain 100 movement speed, decaying over the next 2.5 seconds LIKE THE WIND For the duration of the movement speed increase, you can pass through units COOLDOWN 60 seconds COOLDOWN REDUCTION Unlike other runes, Nimbus Cloak's cooldown is affected by cooldown reduction
See context above for Ultimate Hunter.
Minion Dematerializer is offering too much wave control too early in the game.INITIAL DELAY 155 seconds ⇒ 240 seconds
Inhibitor and Nexus Turret health decreased. Inhibitor Turret health regen increased. Nexus and Inhibitor Turrets can now only regen health up to the next third.
We want to give defenders something to feel good about when they do hold off a push on their base, while also giving sieging teams meaningful milestones other than just "tower destroyed."INHIBITOR TURRET HEALTH 3600 ⇒ 3300 NEXUS TURRET HEALTH 3600 ⇒ 2700 INHIBITOR TURRET HEALTH REGEN 5 health per 5 seconds ⇒ 15 health per 5 seconds BREAK THE FOUNDATIONS Nexus and Inhibitor Turret health is now divided into thirds. Turrets can only regenerate health up to the top of their current third.
More of turret reward gold is granted locally rather than globally.
Similar to our bounty changes last patch, we're looking to decrease the number of truly global objectives in our game and allow players who have a large impact to feel that impact more personally. Accordingly, inner turrets will now provide more of their gold locally and less globally.INNER TURRET LOCAL GOLD REWARD 175 gold (split among nearby champions) ⇒ 300 gold (split among nearby champions) GLOBAL GOLD REWARD 125 gold (to every allied champion) ⇒ 100 gold (to every allied champion)

Respawn time increased. Shrine duration increased.
The action around Scuttle Crab is making for a good mini-objective, but it's currently up too often, forcing too much of a jungler's attention onto its continuous respawn. To compensate for fewer overall Scuttle Crabs, we're pushing some experience back into the basic jungle camps (detailed just below).RESPAWN TIME 135 seconds ⇒ 150 seconds SHRINE DURATION 75 seconds ⇒ 90 seconds
Experience slightly increased at later levels.

If a basic attack would fail to kill a minion by 4 health or less, it will kill that minion.
This is solely to help transition players through the several highly disruptive patches. Every patch after Patch 8.11, we will reduce this number by 1.
The Butcher’s Bridge map returns until June 18 at 11:59 p.m. PT. Pyke joins the ARAM free-to-play rotation during this time.
The following permanent changes are now part of ARAM:
- Available Champions Pool: During champ select, you may swap for a champ that’s been rerolled by any teammate
- Expanded free champs pool (triple the champions)
- Start-of-game base gates (similar to Summoner’s Rift)
- Earlier surrender options (8:00 unanimous, 12:00 standard)
- Champ Mastery adjustments (to make it a bit easier to get an S)
- "True" level 3 starts: You will reach level 4 much faster
Along with some event-only gameplay tests:
- New assassin items: Ghostwalkers, Spectral Cutlass, and Bloodletter’s Veil
- Large area-of-effect heals on health pack pickup that affect both teams equally
- Removal of Warmog’s Armor and Dark Harvest nerf
During the event, Battle Boost temporarily unlocks two skins instead of one.
Read the full ARAM changes for more info.
Certain ping sounds now change depending on how far they are from the listening player and in what direction.PINGS AFFECTED Area is Warded, Danger, Assist Me, Caution
We’re sprucing up reform cards with a clarity pass sometime this patch.
Reform cards are getting some spring cleaning, so we added per-game tabs for chat logs, and made it more clear which chat is from pre-, mid-, or post-game.
- Players are no longer presented with the reconnect dialogue after exiting Practice Tool.
- Aurelion Sol can now correctly be knocked up or back during E - Comet of Legend
- Fixed an interaction between Hextech Flashtraption and Unsealed Spellbook which would allow players to get two Flash summoner spells
- Ryze can no longer kill Tryndamere through his R - Undying Rage with his E - Spell Flux Q - Overload combo
- Dead minions no longer sometimes block champion pathing
- Guardian no longer incorrectly activates from ally corpses.
- Yasuo's Passive - Way of the Wanderer now correctly generates a shield in response to damage from Shaco's R - Hallucinate clone.
Prestige Emotes for levels 400, 425, 450, 475, and 500 will come out during this patch. Players who hit these levels before the emotes are live, will be granted them two weeks after they launch
