Intended to clean up the meta for the Awakening Seasonal taking place in early October, Patch 3.15 resolved several important bug issues. A bug that allowed Kai’Sa to level up faster from cards that weren’t played has been resolved, along with Gwen no longer leveling up when she strikes upon dying. And Attach units can now take advantage of cost reduction effects. 

  • Looking at a unit’s card fan will no longer cause the game to crash
  • A bug resulting in Momentous Choice hanging around longer than intended was resolved
  • The spell Tidal Wave will target two different enemies as intended from now on
  • Cards with effects that count the number of cards added to a hand will properly count created cards as intended
  • Killing a unit with the Disintegrate spell counts as a Slay
  • The Evolve mechanic will progress upon a unit getting transformed into another unit with a new keyword that hasn’t been played yet
  • Kai’Sa won’t gain level-up progress from cards that haven’t been Played
  • Gwen will no longer level if she dies upon striking
  • Attach units will properly consume single-use cost reduction effects like Gleaming Lantern or Bandle City Mayor
  • Hyara Allseer will now properly reduce the cost of Stance Swap to zero
  • An issue causing Jhin’s Lotus Trap to gain extra progression has been resolved
  • Text descriptions were updated on multiple cards to align with game mechanics and provide clarity to players
  • Multiple sound and visual bugs were resolved
