A total of 19 champions—from top lane juggernauts to bot lane mages—are line for changes in League of Legends Patch 11.14.

The developers are knuckling down on balancing in the game’s latest patch, targeting champions from a competitive and casual standpoint. The patch, which is expected to hit the live servers a day later than usual, features sweeping changes to champions like Tahm Kench, Irelia, and Lillia. Follow-up buffs, adjustments, and small iterations are coming to Summoner’s Rift too.

A new limited-time game mode is also making its debut with Sentinels of Light. In Ultimate Spellbook, players will be able to access another champion’s ultimate as an alternative to a summoner spell, giving them almost endless wombo-combo potential.

Here are the full notes for League Patch 11.14.

New game mode: Ultimate Spellbook

Sentinels of Light brings a new event game mode called Ultimate Spellbook. In this mode, players will be able to pick a different champion’s ultimate to use instead of a second summoner spell.

  • Blind pick
  • Your second summoner spell is replaced with an alternative summoner spell that grants access to another champion’s ultimate.
  • When you load into game, you’ll have 30 seconds to pick from one of three ultimates randomly chosen from the pool below. You can’t get your own ultimate, and once you pick an ultimate, it’s yours for the rest of the game.

Champions

  • Ahri
  • Amumu
  • Ashe

  • You can use your alterative summoner spell after an initial cooldown, even before hitting level six. It ranks up at levels 11 and 13, and benefits from summoner spell haste.
    • Ults that only scale with AD now also scale with AP
    • Ults that only scale with AP now also scale with AD
    • Ults that only scale with Health now also scale with AD and AP
    • Ults that scale with nothing continue to scale with nothing
  • You can see everyone’s chosen alternative summoner spells on both the scoreboard and next to their health bar. Pay attention to a teal indicator that appears above champions’ heads when their alternative summoner spell is off cooldown.
  • Ultimate Spellbook has accelerated pacing similar to that of One for All. You start at level three and have more starting gold. Passive XP and gold gains are increased, and you share some minion gold with teammates in lane.
  • Rather than four Elemental Drakes, Ultimate Spellbook has Mordekaiser’s old drake.
    • A drake will spawn every three and a half minutes.
    • Stacks grant a buff that makes auto attacks on towers apply a DoT that deals percentage health magic damage to towers.
    • The Soul grants the ability to reanimate on death with rapidly decaying health. This ability has a five minute cooldown.

Chat restrictions

Riot is making an “under-the-hood” change to move League’s penalties onto the Riot-wide system. The only immediate impact is a change to how chat restrictions work since the Riot-wide system uses time-based restrictions.

  • New chat restrictions will be issued in three- and seven-day increments, rather than 10- and 25-game increments
