League of Legends news » Patch 9.20 notes
High Noon Ashe, Darius, and Hecarim will be available on October 10, 2019.
Base armor and armor growth decreased.
We like the extra range from 9.19 but think he's a little too strong right now.
Base StatsARMOR 44 ⇒ 40 ARMOR GROWTH 4 ⇒ 3.5
Passive regen more reliable. W now grants a shield instead of extra damage reduction in the first 0.75 seconds. E spins now scale with AS. R now always deals true damage; Villain passive removed.
Making big changes to our resident good guy, namely removing the Villain mechanic on his ultimate. Disliked by both Garen players and their opponents, the mechanic wasn't making his gameplay healthier and took control from Garen when choosing his targets, frequently setting him up for failure.
We're also cleaning up his passive and allowing him to gain Conqueror stacks, a Rune other juggernauts get. Garen should now feel more intuitive to play too and not so linear due to more options when considering items.
Base StatsATTACK SPEED GROWTH 2.9% ⇒ 3.65% HEALTH 616.28 ⇒ 620 HEALTH GROWTH 84.25 ⇒ 84
Passive - PerseveranceREGENERATION 2/8% (based on level) of his maximum health per 5 seconds ⇒ 1.5-10.1% (levels 1-18) of his maximum health per 5 seconds removedEMPOWERED REGENERATION Garen no longer passively doubly regenerates health while below 25/50% (based on level) of his maximum health updatedREGENERATION INTERRUPTION 9 seconds when hit by non-minions before level 11; 4 seconds when hit by epic monsters, towers, or champions after level 11 ⇒ 7 seconds when hit by epic monsters, towers, or champions
Q - Decisive StrikenewCAST TIME Now scales with Garen's attack speed, behaving more similarly to a basic attack BUGFIX Fixed a bug where when Garen is slowed, his Q's lockout time dramatically increased
W - CourageRESISTANCES PER KILL 0.33 bonus armor and magic resistance (max of 50 at 150 unit kills) ⇒ 0.25 bonus armor and magic resistance (max of 30 at 150 unit kills) updatedSHIELD ME Grants 30% extra damage reduction and Tenacity for the first 0.75 seconds ⇒ Grants a shield for 10% of his maximum health and 60% Tenacity for the first 0.75 seconds
E - JudgmentSPINS 5-10 (levels 1-16) ⇒ 7 (+1 per 20% attack speed from items and levels) DAMAGE PER SPIN 14/18/22/26/30 (+0.36-0.4 attack damage) ⇒ 8/12/16/20/24 (+0-8 based on level) (+0.32-0.4 attack damage) BONUS DAMAGE 33% to a single enemy ⇒ 25% to the nearest enemy SPINS BEFORE SHRED 4 ⇒ 6 newALEXANDER THE GREAT Now grants stacks of Conqueror on each spin
R - Demacian JusticeremovedPASSIVE Garen no longer marks enemies with the most kills in the last 5 minutes as the Villain newLASIK Grants vision of the target for 1 second, preventing it from cancelling if the target breaks line of sight DAMAGE 175/350/525 (+0.286 /0.333 /0.4 of the target’s missing health) as magic damage ⇒ 150/300/450 (+0.2/0.25/0.3 of the target’s missing health) as true damage
Now a ranged champion. W no longer increases attack range.
Making Ivern more approachable (and stronger!) by not forcing him to get accustomed to multiple basic attack ranges.
Base StatsBASIC ATTACK RANGE 125 ⇒ 475 (Ivern is now classified as a ranged champion for all runes, items, etc.)
W - BrushmakerremovedLONG ARMS No longer increases Ivern's range
Passive and W damage ratios increased.
We're sharpening her niche as a bursty, engage mage while trying not to impact her pro-leaning power.
Round and round we go!ARMOR 20.216 ⇒ 22
Passive - Iceborn SubjugationDAMAGE RATIO 0.3 ability power ⇒ 0.5 ability power
W - Ring of FrostDAMAGE RATIO 0.5 ability power ⇒ 0.7 ability power
Q base damage decreased later.
Pantheon remains a top-tier pick in more skilled games. We've decreased some of his early-game damage as it's more impactful in higher-skill ranked games. Also, a bugfix!
GeneralBUGFIX Pantheon's Q - Comet Spear and W - Shield Vault now properly work when taking Thresh's W - Dark Passage within 0.2 seconds or less
Q - Comet SpearBASE DAMAGE 75/115/155/195/235 ⇒ 75/110/145/180/215
Q base damage decreased early.
We're hitting Qiyana's trade damage, especially after she hits level 3, since it is deceptively high and is making her oppressive in the early game.
Q - Edge of IxtalBASE DAMAGE 80/100/120/140/160 ⇒ 60/85/110/135/160
W boxes are now AoE. More early game damage, less late game damage.
Shaco's playstyle and identity have both changed considerably post-rework, and the gameplay gains have been dubious at best. He should feel empowered to interact with enemies, especially in the early game, but struggles to do so. With these changes, we’re aiming to round out the amount of damage he deals throughout the game instead of having his damage centered around his late-game one-shot potential.
Additionally, we want to support both the more common AD and the more niche AP Shaco builds as meaningfully different playstyles. So, we've changed E's damage type and moved some ratios around to encourage each build to play differently around their abilities.
Base StatsATTACK DAMAGE 66 ⇒ 63 ATTACK DAMAGE GROWTH 3.5 ⇒ 3
Passive - BackstabnewBASIC ATTACK DAMAGE Basic attacking an enemy now deals an additional 10-25 (levels 1-18) (+0.15 bonus attack damage) damage from behind (this damage can critically strike) newTWO-SHIV POISON DAMAGE Two-Shiv Poison now deals an additional 15-50 (levels 1-18) (+0.1 ability power) damage from behind

QoL change for the baby girl so it's easier to know when her empowered basic attack is coming up.PASSIVE QOL Added a resource bar so that it's easier for Sona to track her own passive (only visible to Sona)
Base AD increased; rounding out other stats.
Giving Varus some general, reliable power.
Base StatsATTACK DAMAGE 59 ⇒ 61 MANA REGEN 7.34 ⇒ 8 MANA 360.5 ⇒ 360 HEALTH 499 ⇒ 500
Q no longer scales with Viktor's mana. W Augment now grants slow to other spells. R now ticks faster and moves quicker.
Giving Viktor some love by offering him more exciting Augments for his W and R, two abilities that are generally underpowered, and decreasing some of his mana dependency.
GeneralBUGFIX Hex Core stats now update upon purchase instead of when Viktor next levels up BUGFIX Augmented: Aftershock Death Ray missiles are now the same width as the initial missile
Q - Siphon PowerSHIELD 8% of his maximum mana (+0.15 ability power) ⇒ 30-115 (levels 1-18) (+0.15 ability power)

Active shield strength increased.
Looking to broaden the uses of the Locket, especially in a meta where there are less AoE burst champions. The change will also apply to Circlet of the Iron Solari!SHIELD STRENGTH 30 (+15 per level) ⇒ 120 (+10 per level)
As of 9.20, players will no longer be able to find and add friends through social media. When clicking on the "Add Friends" icon, there will no longer be an option to click on "By Social Network" and connect to your Facebook account to find friends.
