  • Story #1
  • Story #2
Conflicted between her celestial and mortal natures, Morgana bound her wings to embrace humanity, and inflicts her pain and bitterness upon the dishonest and the corrupt. She rejects laws and traditions she believes are unjust, and fights for truth from the shadows of Demacia—even as others seek to repress it—by casting shields and chains of dark fire. More than anything else, Morgana truly believes that even the banished and outcast may one day rise again.

Whether through destiny or circumstance, Morgana and her sister were born to a world in conflict. The cataclysmic Rune Wars had ripped through most of Valoran and Shurima, and seemed poised to engulf even the peaks of Targon. Morgana’s parents, Mihira and Kilam, knew the legends of the great mountain granting divine power—they saw no other choice than to attempt the long and perilous journey, if their tribe was to be saved.

Even when they learned Mihira was with child, they could not turn back. Finally, where Runeterra touches the stars, Kilam watched in wonder and fear as Mihira was chosen to embody the Aspect of Justice.

The couple returned not only with the salvation they sought, but twin daughters—Morgana and Kayle. However, the celestial power that claimed Mihira began to overshadow her mortal personality and affections. She would often push the girls into their father’s arms, abandoning them to answer battle’s call.

For many months, uncertainty gnawed at Kilam. The wars still raged on countless fronts, and his beloved wife was slipping away. Fearing for his daughters’ safety, he waited for Mihira to leave once more, then fled Targon with them both.

Though their destination did not yet have a name, it would become known as a haven from magic and persecution: the kingdom of Demacia.

There the twins grew different as day and night. While Kayle studied the settlement’s growing set of laws, dark-haired Morgana became troubled by their distrust of new arrivals. Knowing what it was to be a refugee, she wandered the wilds, talking to wayward mages and others cast out for the dangers they might bring. At home, she felt her father’s heartbreak at leaving Mihira behind, and grew bitter at her mother for causing such pain.

Morgana’s fears that she and Kayle might carry some remnant of the Aspect’s power were eventually confirmed, when a great blade wreathed in shadow and starfire fell from the heavens. As it pierced the ground, splitting in two, feathered wings burst from the girls’ shoulders. Their father wept at the sight of them each taking up half of the weapon, and turned away even as Morgana reached out to comfort him.

While Kayle embraced their new calling, rallying an order of judicators to enforce the laws, Morgana resented her gifts… until the night their settlement was raided. Kilam found himself surrounded as the fighting spread. In that moment, Morgana rushed to shield him, burning his attackers to ash. Together, the sisters saved countless lives, and were hailed as the Winged Protectors of Demacia.

But Kayle grew more extreme in her ideologies, and Morgana increasingly found herself pleading the case of those who wanted to atone for their crimes. An accord was struck between the sisters and their mortal devotees—though it was uneasy, and did not last. Kayle’s most ardent disciple, Ronas, came to arrest Morgana herself. Attempting to protect her penitent followers, she shackled him with dark flame until he fell to the floor, dead.

Divine fire lit the city from above as Kayle swore to bring Ronas’ killer to justice, and Morgana met her sister in the skies.

They raised their blades, each matching the other with arcs of blinding light and burning darkness that lashed down at the buildings beneath them. It seemed certain that one of them would win… but Morgana faltered when she heard their father’s anguished voice. Kilam lay in the rubble, mortally wounded. Howling with grief, Morgana hurled her half of their mother’s sword at Kayle, and plunged to the surface like a meteorite.

She cradled her father, cursing their inheritance for the destruction around them. Kayle landed, dumbstruck, and Morgana demanded to know if the smiting of wicked mortals included Kilam, whose crime was stealing them away from their mother. Kayle gave no answer, but soared into the heavens without looking back.

Morgana’s wings became an inescapable reminder of her pain. She tried to cut them from her flesh, but could find no blade strong enough. Instead, she bound them with iron chains, resolving instead to walk the world of mortals.

Over the centuries, her tale fell into myth, and the name Morgana was all but forgotten. To this day, the people of Demacia venerate “the Winged Protector,” but recall only the glory and truth of one sister, while Morgana’s dark outbursts and belief in personal redemption became the mysteries of “the Veiled One.”

Through all of this, she still refuses to abandon those who would seek her aid. Bitter, betrayed, she bides her time in the kingdom’s shadows, knowing with certainty that Kayle’s light will someday return to Runeterra, and all will face her judgment.

As magic begins to rise again, Morgana sees that dawn is nearly upon them.

"Only those you love can break your heart."

Rin stubbed his toe on a root and stumbled, catching himself before he lost his balance. A few paces in front of him, his great aunt looked back.

“Need my old bones to slow down for you? Ho ha!” she chuckled.

“No,” he murmured to his shoes. His great aunt Peria was snow-haired and stooped with age, though she was still a few inches taller than Rin. He wished he could be as tall as his horrible brother—he would have towered over both of them if he was there.

Rin had never been in this part of the woods before. The pine trees grew closer together, so much that the light of the noonday sun had diminished to a glimmer amongst the shadows.

Aunt Peria stopped ahead. At first, he thought she stood in front of a mossy boulder, but as he caught up he saw the remains of a stone figure, eroded by time. Rin fiddled with the rocks in his pocket.

“Aha! Do you know who this is?” asked Aunt Peria.

“Uh, some old noble from the city?” said Rin.

“Oh no!” said Aunt Peria cheerfully. “To many, she was no more than shadow and myth. A figure known as the MorganaSquare.pngVeiled One.”

Aunt Peria lifted her lantern up toward the figure. The statue’s left arm was missing from the shoulder, but her right palm was open, as if inviting them forward. Upon her head was what must have once been a delicate stone shroud, now coated in vines. Feathered stubs rose from her shoulders, broken and weathered. Rin could see that part of her face had crumbled garishly, and he shivered. The unbroken half of her face was not much better—her remaining eye was marked with stains, and her expression was spiteful, as if she was about to spit out sour milk.

“Don’t like her?” Aunt Peria said, amused. “You are not the only one. She is not the most beloved. But she knows all about revenge.”

Rin’s eyes widened. He thought he’d been so careful.

“Yes, yes, I heard the rocks clacking around your pocket,” said Aunt Peria. “I know you’re planning to get back at your brother. He didn’t mean to hurt you, you know.”

“He hit me in the eye with the blunt of his axe!” Rin cried. “What do you think he meant to do? Shouldn’t he be the one who gets a lesson?”

“He was showing you where to chop wood. You know he would never hurt you on purpose,” said Aunt Peria.

“He deserves his own black eye!”

“And if you gave him one, what lesson do you think he would learn from that, hmm?”

Rin did not think Aunt Peria would much like his response, so he stayed silent.

“No answer? A story, then,” said Aunt Peria. “Now, listen!”

Rin sat himself down in front of the statue. With a sigh, he leaned his head against his hand.

“Long ago, in the deepest, darkest woods, where the trees grew together so tightly no sign of the sky or stars was visible, the Veiled One lived, far away from any settlement. Though few spoke with her, it was believed that she was older than dawn, sharper and wiser than any in the land. Those with disputes they could not solve themselves would come to her for final judgment, to seek wisdom, absolution—and occasionally, punishment. But they did so with caution, for it was also known that her lessons could be severe.

“One day, a Cleric and his Pupil entered the woods to find the Veiled One, for the Pupil had erred. The Pupil had acted in anger against his elder, striking him with a censer. Smouldering incense had scarred the Cleric’s face with a grotesque burn. The Pupil knew he done wrong and wanted to repent.

“The two had journeyed a day and a night before they found the Veiled One.

“They entered a cavern illuminated by candles. Water dripped from the ceiling, and strange potions lined the walls. It stank of gravesoil and moss. Dozens of raven-black feathers littered the floor.

“A figure silently emerged from the shadows to meet them—the Veiled One. A black shroud hid most of her features from sight, but her eerily violet eyes shone through. Her feet were bare on the cold stone floor. As the Pupil told his tale, she gazed at him with an unbroken stare.

“‘I see that your actions were no accident,’ spoke the Veiled One at last. Her voice, though rarely heard, was barbed like a thornbush. ‘You acted with purpose and certainty. And yet, now you feel much pain at having hurt your master.’

“‘Aye, I wish to atone for my sins so that I may rid myself of this guilt,’ he said.

“‘Guilt can teach many things to a heart humbled by intent. Why did you strike your master?’ she asked.

“‘It was an act of anger. I was wrong,’ said the Pupil.

“‘Perhaps. What caused your anger?’ asked the Veiled One.

“The Pupil looked to his Cleric, and cast his eyes down.

“‘In my foolishness, I sought to end his lesson to another student,’ said the Pupil.

“‘And what was that lesson?’

“Before the Pupil could answer, the Cleric interrupted.

“‘My students require instruction in myriad ways,’ he said. ‘I teach them manners, patience, and restraint. If I must, I will use the lash. I do not enjoy it—these lessons are my sacred duty.’

“The Veiled One peered at the Cleric. Behind the shroud, her eyes seemed to bore into him.

“‘But you do enjoy them,’ she said.

“‘I beg—’

“‘Tell me, scarred master, are your lessons truly for the good of your students? Or do you punish them to relish their suffering?’ said the Veiled One.

“‘No,’ the Pupil interrupted. ‘He can’t have, he cares about us—’

“The Cleric raised his hand and struck the boy.

“‘I don’t need your lying breath to defend me,’ spat the Cleric, his scarred face vivid with anger.

“The Veiled One opened her palm and chained the Cleric to her with dark fire. The bindings glimmered with immaterial violet light, but the Cleric could not break them as he struggled.

“‘You came to me for another’s punishment,’ she hissed. ‘But you ignore your own sins. Your sick pride swells as they come back to you, Cleric. Since you refuse to look yourself, I will make you feel the pain you caused.’

“Through the chains that bound them, the Veiled One forced him to endure all the shame, suffering, and loneliness he had inflicted on his pupils. For an instant, the Cleric’s heart stopped, as a great weight he had never known constricted his very soul. He fell to his knees, fixed in place by bitter torment, as shadowed flames licked his flesh.

“‘Stop, please stop!’ the student cried. ‘Please, punish me in his place. He has suffered enough!’

“‘You defend him, even now,’ said the Veiled One. ‘The wretch has much to learn ere death's mercy lays claim. He alone must feel the pain he caused so he may never hurt another. You came here seeking understanding—its burden is now yours to bear.’

“The Pupil did not show his face at his cloister for many days. But when hunger and fatigue overcame him, he finally forgot his fear of his master’s lash. Upon his return, he found the Cleric a different man. Where his elder had been cruel and uncaring, he was patient and gentle. For though the burn on his face had not yet healed, the Veiled One’s lesson had cut far deeper.”

Aunt Peria set her lantern at the base of the statue. Half her stone-gray face was lost to darkness, with flickering shadows running down her shroud like tears.

“Be careful, Rin, when wishing for punishment. Can you teach a lesson that will make your brother a better person? Even if he did hit you on purpose, there is no sense in you punishing him selfishly.”

Rin felt the rocks in his pocket.

“I guess my brother did say he was sorry. After I fell down from getting hit in the eye,” he said. He begrudgingly dropped the rocks to the forest floor.

“Wonderful! Let us give thanks to the Veiled One.”

Aunt Peria opened her lantern and blew the candle out.

“Remember—revenge is an act of pride, but teaching is selfless,” she said. “In case you forget, I’ll be watching you! Ha! And the Veiled One might be, too!”

Rin watched the smoke curl and unfold around the statue’s empty stone eye, shrouding the figure in shadow. When he looked back, Aunt Peria had set off through the trees, back toward the village. Rin hurried to catch up.

An epic poem long lost in the Crownguard Family library, High Silvermere

I - Overture

An age of runes, a time of war.
The fury of the mages unleashed.
Cities aflame, continents sundered.
Runeterra undone, its seams unraveling.
Targon’s impossible peak did tremble.
Celestial eyes saw their doom,
and wept for what had become of Mortals.
Every soul cried out for Justice,

every heart a contest of arms.

II - The Coming of the Twins

Born beneath the vault of stars,
one in Light, one in Shadow.
Kayle and Morgana,
Sisters by Fate, joined hand in hand.
To Demacia’s fair lands they came,
A land untouched, a kingdom yet to be.
Though magic raged across the world,
it broke upon her wooded shores.

A Haven amid the Raging Storm.

III - Lessons Unheeded

The world endured, and darkness lifted,
but mortal hearts are slow to mend.
And truths won in blood and grief,
were lost as bitterness and greed returned.
Law and Justice went unheeded.
For it is the doom of mortals to forget,
the wounds of war, the scars of hate.
An abyss of Night yawned anew.

Until the world was bathed in Light.

IV - The Winged Protectors

A Sword of Flame birthed in lightning’s heart,
Fell from the stars, its twin halves alight.
Kayle took up her Blade of Justice
And Righteous Fire burned in her eyes.
Their mother’s sword? Passed on in death?
Morgana’s heart was broken to grasp her blade.
A veil of grief drew about her.
And power wrought their flesh anew,

in ways both wondrous and terrible.

V - Kayle, Bringer of Justice

Wings of gold and wings of jet,
sprang forth and lifted them high.
The Winged Protectors arose,
Defenders of the Realm, beloved Guardians.
Kayle’s golden light saw all.
She knew what lurked in evil hearts,
and purged wicked deeds by fire.
None were spared her wrathful blade.

Judge. Jury. Executioner.

VI - Morgana, Sword of Shadow

As the brightest light casts the deepest shadow,
One defines the other and brings balance.
Morgana too fought for Demacia’s cause,
driving enemies back in terror.
But Morgana saw the bitter harvest to come,
For all seeds sown in darkness reap evil crops.
Mercy. Absolution. Atonement.
By such waters might goodness grow,

And end the cycle of war and death.

VII - The Battle of Zeffira

Toward the city of grand Zeffira,
an army of hate descended.
The Winged Protectors flew to the people’s aid.
Kayle fell upon the screaming host,
her blade of fire wet with blood.
But Morgana saw what Kayle had not.
A secret force within the city!
Zeffira’s people cried out for succor,

and Morgana swooped down in answer.

VIII - What Cannot be Undone

Kayle slew her foes in purest wrath.
Her body torn and bloody, she cried aloud,
“Sister fair, I am sore beset!”
Morgana heeded not her cries,
her powers bent to shield those within.
Zeffira endured, but much was lost,
One sister’s love, one sister’s hope.
Each saw through a glass, darkly;

a failing in the other, a fatal flaw.

IX - The Judgement of Silvermere

Trust, once broken, only slowly heals.
Yet not for Kayle and Morgana.
Warriors flocked to Kayle’s righteous banner.
Justice bled bright over all the land
On Silvermere’s Peak, a sinner knelt,
his neck bared to blood red blade.
He craved absolution, begged forgiveness.
Kayle had none to give, a killing blow she smote.

But the executioner’s edge never struck.

X - The Plea

A black shield of night stayed its edge.
Morgana begged her sister to relent:
“Do we forsake all hope of redemption?
Are all who err damned to die?”
Her pity touched Kayle’s heart with love.
Though her warriors clamored for death,
Her love for Morgana drowned their calls.
Thus Kayle let Mercy stay her hand.

And that would be Love’s undoing.

XI - The Fall

Accord was struck, a penitent’s pact.
Reprieve for souls whose hearts could mend.
Kayle’s disciples, zeal undimmed,
planned Morgana’s death, called her Fallen.
They came with chains and frightful passion,
Morgana answered with chains of her own,
black and deadly, they struck him down.
Kayle felt his death, wailed in despair.

And took to the skies, blade unsheathed.

XII - The Righteous and the Fallen

Kayle and Morgana.
Sisters no longer, enemies eternal.
On wings of gold and jet, they fought.
Their mother’s blades clashed in fury,
clouds aflame with Fire and Ruin.
Demacia’s skies wept crimson rain.
Together they fell, light and dark entwined.
Till Morgana threw her blade aside and cried:

“Let Justice be done, not Vengeance wrought!”

XIII - The Twins Divided

In Morgana’s face, Kayle saw herself reflected;
Celestial glory marred by mortal passion.
She cried with loss and spread her wings,
to Targon’s light and realms beyond.
Morgana knelt in battle’s sorrow,
her wings a curse, a reminder of pain.
No blade could cut, no fire burn.
With chains, she bound black feathers tight.

And vanished through the mists of time.

XIV - Coda

Of Morgana, only myth remains.
Veiled secrets and hidden shadows.
Yet the legacy of Kayle burns bright,
in all our hearts and minds.
The wind whispers of her return.
When Targon’s beacon shines anew,
and night falls on the world,
look to the south on that day.

And pray for all Demacia.

Patch History[]

Patch 11.9

W damage against non-epic monsters decreased.

Although we still think she’s a great new addition to the jungle, our 11.8 buff to Morgana was stronger than intended, so we're partially walking it back.

Tormented Shadow.png W - Tormented Shadow


Patch 11.8
 Jungle Champion Changes


Patch 11.7

Soul Siphon.png Passive - Soul Siphon

BUGFIX : Tooltip now more clearly states that the effect only applies to large monsters

Patch 11.1

Tormented Shadow.png W - Tormented Shadow

BUGFIX : Now properly deals additional damage to small jungle monsters

Patch 10.25
W DoT decreased later.

Morgana's DoT is making her too strong in her solo lane, especially as her opponents don't have the help of another body like in bot.

Tormented Shadow.png W - Tormented Shadow

DAMAGE PER SECOND : [12/24/36/48/60 (based on enemy champion's missing health)] 12/22/32/42/52 (based on enemy champion's missing health)

Patch 10.16
Q cooldown decreased.

Bot lane has been awash with dive-heavy supports with strong CC, so we’re helping Morgana unshackle her potential as a promising counterpick.

Dark Binding.png Q - Dark Binding

COOLDOWN : [11] 10 seconds

Patch 10.6

Continuing with a third round of changes to diversify and widen the jungle champion pool. You'll notice that Morgana is getting a specific change to have her be viable in the jungle along buffs to her main roles. We're monitoring the effect of these changes to assure that they're not overwhelmingly affecting anything at the higher rungs of the skill ladder while also confirming that they are in fact fostering more diverse picks.


BLAZE MONSTER DAMAGE : Ablaze now deals 120% damage to monsters


TORMENTED SHADOW MONSTER DAMAGE : Now does 150% damage to monsters




BLINDING DART BLIND DURATION : Now lasts 100% longer vs. monsters
TOXIC SHOT POISON DAMAGE : Now does 150% damage to monsters


SHEPHERD OF SOULS FINAL SERVICE : Yorick now raises graves on large monster deaths and Mist Walkers take 50% reduced damage from monsters


PLANTS DAMAGE TO MONSTERS : Zyra's plants now deal 150% damage to monsters

Patch 9.14
R now provides true sight on stunned targets.

Soul Shackles.png R - Soul Shackles

ALL-SEEING EYE Soul Shackles now reveals successfully stunned targets for the duration of the root as well

Patch 9.9
E cooldown increased and shield strength decreased.

Morgana’s still too strong even with the changes in 9.7. We’re targeting her shield this time so she (and her lane partner) is a bit more vulnerable when it's on cooldown.

Black Shield.png E - Black Shield

COOLDOWN : [23/21/19/17/15]
SHIELD STRENGTH : [70/140/210/280/350]

Patch 9.7
Health regen growth decreased. W ratio decreased.

Lookin' good and feelin' fine. But maybe a little too fine, especially in mid. Trimming off some excess power from her update in 9.5. While we're aiming mainly at mid-lane Morg, support will also be affected.

Base Stats


Tormented Shadow.png W - Tormented Shadow

MINIMUM TOTAL DAMAGE RATIO : [0.8] 0.7 ability power (still at 0% target missing health)
MAXIMUM TOTAL DAMAGE RATIO : [2.16] 1.89 ability power (still at 100% target missing health)

Patch 9.5

Kayle and Morgana are ready to take down the guilty. The sisters serve justice in Patch 9.5!

High-res versions of Kayle and Morgana's updated splash art are available on League Displays!

Base mana regen decreased. Black Shield cost increased.

In her other roles, Morgana's ability to spam spells is gated by the harsh mana scaling on her W, but as a support (where she maxes W last), she has too much lane consistency.

Base Stats

MANA REGEN : [15] 11 mana per 5 seconds

Black Shield.png E - Black Shield

COST : [50] 80 mana

25 mages have more mana regen and base mana, but less mana growth. 5 other mages have more mana regen.

These champions, while also affected by the Doran's Ring, don't tend to build any of the mana items we're touching this patch. So, we're only adjusting their mana regen, but leaving their base mana and mana growth untouched.

Base mana regen increased; mana regen growth decreased. Passive no longer procs on small units but heals more off everything else. W cooldown reduced when passive procs.

Morgana's existing laning pattern is pretty uninspiring: Press W on wave, get health back, keep laning. We're sharpening that pattern to give her more clear success and failure cases, and give opponents better windows in which to punish her (or deny her lane sustain). Trimming back that generic power allows us to make solo lane Morgana a lot stronger when played well.

Base stats

MANA REGEN : [8.5] 11.5 per 5 seconds

Soul Siphon.png Passive - Soul Siphon

SPELL VAMP No longer grants 10/15/20% spell vamp
DEFINITELY NOT SPELL VAMP Morgana heals for 15/20/25/30/35/40% (at levels 1/4/7/10/13/16) of the damage her abilities deal to champions, large minions, and large monsters

Tormented Shadow.png W - Tormented Soil

FOMENTED TORMENT Tormented Soil's cooldown is now reduced by 5% whenever Soul Siphon triggers


BASE HEALTH : [547.48] 559

E cast range increased.

Able to play offense and defense, Morgana’s catch potential and Black Shield make her a valuable flex pick for multiple roles and compositions. We’re giving a small boost to Morg’s strategic expression to keep her in the discussion when teams are looking for utility.

Black Shield.png E - Black Shield

CAST RANGE : [750] 800


In a world without mana potions (and generally less early mana regeneration), we've identified a few champions for some emergency rations, giving early mana boosts until they can get their footing and purchase items to make up the deficit. This also means we can really understand which champions relied on mana potions as a crutch to limp through the early to mid game, and we can give additional love if necessary. Mana Regen

The following champs have +2.5 base mana regen per 5 seconds:

Q mana cost down.

Just a light bump to reinforce Morgana’s pattern of fishing for Dark Bindings, especially for the supports out there working their mana overtime. Y’all the real MVP’s.

Dark Binding.png Q - Dark Binding

COST : [50/60/70/80/90] 50/55/60/65/70

Tormented Soil's damage is lowered at early ranks.

"While Morgana's strong crowd control and top-tier denial tool in Black Shield make her fantastic for those looking to protect a priority target or pick off a straggler, they also toe the line of making her a 'fallen-angel-of-all-trades'. In the interest of keeping her strengths strong, we're limiting her early lane control with the powerhouse pushing of Tormented Soil so she isn't great in every situation."
  • Tormented Shadow.png W - Tormented Soil
    • DAMAGE : 12/19/26/33/40 damage per second 8/16/24/32/40 damage per second

Morgana's abilities have updated looks and sounds.

  • General
    • AUDIO & VISUALS : Morgana's autoattack and ability SFX and VFX have been updated for her base and all skins! Check here for the full details.
    • ICONS : Morgana has also received new ability icons!

Mass Texture Rebalance (Part 5)

"We're continuing our comprehensive pass at the game's older character textures. As with previous installments, our goal is to improve parity with newer releases and make sure everybody looks at home on the newly-updated Rift. At least two people said they're still reading this paragraph so we're gonna keep it!"
  • TEXTURES : The following textures have been updated:
    • MorganaSquare.pngMorgana
      • Base, Blackthorn, Blade Mistress, Exiled, Sinful Succulence
    • VolibearSquare.pngVolibear
      • Base, Northern Storm, Thunder Lord

Black Shield has a lower base and R doesn't nuke as hard.

"Regardless of how she's played (as a mage or a support), Morgana brings a lot of utility and damage to the table, so we're looking to reduce some of her overall effectiveness. While we don't usually talk about specific changes in the context, reducing the base value on Black Shield means support Morgana will have to choose between the defense it provides and the offensive power she gets from leveling Dark Binding, while mage Morgana will be less affected with her AP ratios compensating at rank 1."
  • Black Shield.png E - Black Shield
    • BASE SHIELD 95/160/225/290/355 ⇒ 70/140/210/280/350
  • SoulShackles.jpg R - Soul Shackles
    • BASE MAGIC DAMAGE 175/250/325 ⇒ 150/225/300
    • TOTAL POSSIBLE MAGIC DAMAGE PER TARGET 350 / 500 / 650 ⇒ 300 / 450 / 600

v3.14 Context: Sometimes we want to adjust a champion's overall power without affecting their balance and functionality, we first look for ways to add gameplay and readability for their opponents. In Morgana's case, that means displaying the radius of Soul Shackles to both Morgana and her victims.

  • R - Soul Shackles
    • Now displays the leash radius to Morgana and her victims for the duration of the effect

Summary: Morgana’s attack range, base attack speed, and basic attack animation have been improved across the board. Tormented Soil no longer reduces magic resistance per tick, instead it deals additional damage based on an enemy's missing health. Morgana should deal roughly the same amount of overall damage, although there’ll be some variation due to how the new Tormented Soil works.

Context: This change is more of a modernization of Morgana and her Tormented Soil by rewarding her for being continuously aggressive with landing her Dark Bindings. Specifically, we wanted to reinforce Morgana's standard damage combo of Dark Binding to Tormented Soil, rather than the "ideal" combo of using Tormented Soil's magic resistance reduction to make Dark Binding deal more damage.
