Patch 10.2

Hi friends, what's up? How are your resolutions holding up? Do you really think you'll be able to get out of Silver this year? I hope so!

Speaking of climbing the ladder, we encourage all of y'all to get your placements done sooner than later! Clash will be launching later this year, and we wouldn't want you to miss out on all the fun because you procrastinated (like your New Year resolution). Don't be like me, failing my last year's resolution to learn to watercolor because I ran out of time.

This patch, we got follow up adjustments to Aphelios, nerfs to Qiyana and Nautilus, and buffs to Sona (yes, Sona, my main, my favorite champion, that's it). Jinx is also getting a change to her passive to let her be more.. Jinx-y and Rift Herald's doing her best to get more attention from you.

Additionally, we've made some follow-up updates to the Elemental Rifts so they read clearer and are more defined overall. Infernal and Mountain Rifts, in particular, should feel clearer gameplay-wise and look more polished in its textures.

And that's it for 10.2! Get your climbing on and see you in two weeks!

Take this portal if you're looking for TFT's patch notes!

Patch Highlights[]

Patch 10.2 Banner.jpg

  • Guardians of the Sands Janna, Ryze, and Rengar will be available January 22, 2020.
  • Dragonslayer Olaf, Trundle, and Diana will be available January 30, 2020.


ApheliosSquare.png Aphelios  
Calibrum basic attack mark damage now flat; Calibrum Q cooldown increased. Crescendum mirror Chakrams do less damage after the first one. Severum onslaught damage ratio decreased.

Following up with a couple of more adjustments based on his performance since launch and how he's stacked up after the couple of bugfixes and changes at the start of the year.

Calibrum, the Rifle.png Calibrum, the Rifle
BASIC ATTACK MARK DAMAGE : [20/25/30/35/40 (+0.3 bonus AD) (levels 1-9)]
15 (+0.2 bonus AD)
Q COOLDOWN : [9/8.25/7.5/6.75/6]
10/9.5/9/8.5/8 seconds (levels 1-9)

Crescendum, the Chakram.png Crescendum, the Chakram

130-223% total attack damage (mirror Chakrams 1-10)

Severum, the Scythe Pistol.png Severum, the Scythe Pistol

Q DAMAGE : [10/15/20/25/30 (+0.35 bonus AD)]
10/15/20/25/30 (+0.3 bonus AD) per hit (levels 1-9)

DravenSquare.png Draven  
R damage ratio now scales.

Draven seems to have come out of the item changes from Preseason a bit worse for wear.

Whirling Death.png R - Whirling Death
DAMAGE : [175/275/375 (+1.1 bonus AD)]
175/275/375 (+1.1/1.3/1.5 bonus AD)

JinxSquare.png Jinx  
Passive bonus movement speed now applies with Epic Monsters as well.

Jinx has always been a big fan of taking objectives. So increasing the list of things her passive procs off of is a very champion-resonant way to have more "Jinx moments" each game without massively increasing Jinx's actual power level.

Get Excited!.png Passive - Get Excited!
BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED : Whenever Jinx damages [enemy champions, turrets, or inhibitors] enemy champions, turrets, inhibitors, or Epic Monsters (that her team kills) within 3 seconds of their death

KarmaSquare.png Karma  
Q and W base damage increased.

Helping out Karma's early ability to scrap against her opponents.

Inner Flame.png Q - Inner Flame
BASE DAMAGE : [80/125/170/215/260]

Focused Resolve.png W - Focused Resolve

BASE DAMAGE : [30/55/80/105/130]

LuluSquare.png Lulu  
Base armor and attack damage rounded up. E cooldown decreased.

Making Pix a lot more available and, therefore, useful, so Lulu can make best use of her best faerie friend.

Base Stats
ARMOR : [28.22] 29
ATTACK DAMAGE : [46.368] 47

Help, Pix!.png E - Help, Pix!

COOLDOWN : [10] 8 seconds

NautilusSquare.png Nautilus  
Q base damage decreased.

Nautilus is like that bully in high school that'd push your head in the toilet and almost drown you just because he can. Doing something about that so enemies aren't completely overwhelmed, especially early.

Dredge Line.png Q - Dredge Line
BASE DAMAGE : [80/130/180/230/280]

QiyanaSquare.png Qiyana  
W passive attack speed now scales.

Qiyana's strength in the jungle was making it difficult to keep her in check since she was such a reliable flex pick in pro play. We want to encourage her identity as a mid-laner and keep her from running amok in the woods.

Terrashape.png W - Terrashape
PASSIVE ATTACK SPEED : [20%] 5/10/15/20/25%

SonaSquare.png Sona  
E self movement speed now flat and increased.

Sona has room for some buffs when you compare her to other enchanters. We nerfed her in the past to prevent double-support-item shenanigans, but since we've mitigated those concerns, we have the opportunity to give her a little tuning. This change will give her more of an opportunity to dodge skill shots and the ability to maneuver around the map and get to her allies.

Song of Celerity.png E - Song of Celerity
SELF MOVEMENT SPEED : [10/11/12/13/14% (+0.03 per 100 AP)]
25% (+0.04 per 100 AP)

ThreshSquare.png Thresh  
Additional changes from his VFX update in 10.1.
Death Sentence.png Q - Death Sentence
VFX : Added Q width indicators for Pulsefire Thresh and Pulsefire Thresh Prestige Edition
BUGFIX : Pulsefire Thresh now properly uses his new Q cast effect

Flay.png E - Flay

VFX : Added a new quickcast indicator on all skins
PULSEFIRE THRESH VFX : Added circles around Pulsefire Thresh's and Pulsefire Prestige Edition Thresh's E to match his other skins

TrundleSquare.png Trundle  
W movement speed increased. E slow increased.

Trundle has been suffering all around, but especially when allies have to rely on him for ganks.

Frozen Domain.png W - Frozen Domain
MOVEMENT SPEED : [20/25/30/35/40%]

Pillar of Ice.png E - Pillar of Ice

SLOW : [15/25/35/45/55%]

ViktorSquare.png Viktor  
Passive mana bugfix.
Glorious Evolution.png Passive - Glorious Evolution
BUGFIX : Viktor no longer loses a significant amount of mana if he upgrades the Prototype Hex Core early into the game

ZiggsSquare.png Ziggs  
Q base damage increased. W enemy knockback increased. E slow increased.

We're giving Ziggs a stronger way to disrupt opponents and encourage a greater presence in the early game.

Bouncing Bomb.png Q - Bouncing Bomb
DAMAGE : [75/120/165/210/255]

Satchel Charge.png W - Satchel Charge


Hexplosive Minefield.png E - Hexplosive Minefield

SLOW : [20/25/30/35/40%]


ItemSquareCloak of Agility.pngCloak of Agility   

The initial goal of buffing Cloak of Agility last year was to account for the fact that it was slightly underpowered for the gold cost. However, this has led to folks stacking Cloaks on crit champions, which also makes the decision between Cloak of Agility and Pickaxe more of a math problem than desired and doesn't help the average player measure how their lane went. A clearer item hierarchy is more helpful (B.F. Sword > Pickaxe > Cloak of Agility) when considering this key indicator of success.


ItemSquareFrozen Heart.pngFrozen Heart   

Frozen Heart is underperforming compared to other options for armor. We want it to be a go-to consideration when a champion is facing many physical threats.

ARMOR : [100] 110


Nerfing Stormrazor as it's overperforming a tad, focusing on the tAD so it keeps its unique and impactful slow utility.

VFX BUGFIX : Stormrazor's Energized VFX no longer can be seen within Fog of War

Rift Herald[]

Rift Herald takes a little too long to defeat, so teams lessen the priority on it compared to other objectives. We want her to get a little love too, so we're looking to lessen the gap between the pros and cons of killing her.
