Evelynn has been stealing objectives with her ultimate. Riot has said that the ult should only be used on champions, not monsters.

(Ult) Last Caress

  • 250 percent execute damage now only applies to champions

Janna

Jenne’s Zephyr has been a main focus for players. Maxing this has been giving players an edge in battle. Hence, its base damage is being nerfed.

(2) Zephyr

  • Base Damage: 65/125/185/245 → 55/105/155/205

Katarina

Riot has said that the champion’s win rate is really high. Thus, her passive is being nerfed. A change has also been made to Katarina’s ult.

(P) Voracity

  • AP Ratio: 0.58 – 1.0 based on level → 0.48 – 0.9 based on level

(Ult) Death Lotus

  • Now sets Katarina’s base movement speed to 125 when spinning instead of being treated as a slow that could be reduced by slow resistance

Leona

Leona was a bit underpowered and is getting a buff on her Zenith Blade.

Xin Zhao

The champion has been underperforming since his rework to match League on PC. Thus, Xin Zhao’s Seneschal of Demacia is being buffed. Riot has said that it is keeping a “close eye” on his progress.

Base Stats

  • Magic Resist: 30 → 38
  • Health Gained per Level-Up: 105 → 115
  • Health at Level 15: 2120 → 2260

Gameplay Changes

Items

Riot said that Bami’s Cinder and Sunfire Aegis is making tank junglers and tanky lane builds far too overpowered. Hence, their damage is being decreased againt non-champions.

Bami’s Cinder

  • Minion and monster damage modification: 50 → 25 percent

Sunfire Aegis

  • Minion and monster damage modification: 50 → 25 percent

Winter’s Approach

Winter’s Approach isn’t being used as much. Thus, the rate it stacks mana is being increased to have it come online a bit quicker.

Mana Charge
  • Mana granted: 8 → 12

Summoner Spells

Ignite

Ignite’s range is being increased to help longer-ranged champions use it better.

  • Cast Range: 5.5 → 6

Smite

Riot is increasing mana regen to help level the playing field between resourceless junglers and mana-hungry junglers. The company has said that it will be keeping a close eye on this “significant change.”

  • Passive: Restores 4 mana per second while in jungle or river

System

Outer Tower Gold

Riot wants players to benefit by winning in their lane instead of depending on global gold. Hence, the global gold is being decreased while the gold earned per plate is being increased.

  • Gold per plate: 100g → 150g
  • Global gold on destruction: 150g → 100g

Jungle

Some camps were being ignored as the time it takes to do them didn’t outweigh the benefits of roaming. Riot is adjusting these camps to make it less of a trap to spend time clearing them.

Gromp

  • Health: 2500 → 2200

Krugs

  • Ancient Krug Health: 1600 → 1200
  • Krug Health: 600 → 500

Bug Fixes

  • A bug regarding champion points has been fixed. Now, when players reach their champion points limit for their rank, they will neither lose nor gain points after winning a game.
