Overview
Patch 11.7

If you're still in the winter blues, don't you fret—we're cranking up the tunes to take you on an interstellar groove.

First, it's off to the Freljord, where we're getting cozy with a couple of chilly companions (Ashe, Braum, and Lissandra). Then we're heading down to Bandle City to turn down Tristana's Boomer-box and pass the mic to Teemo, because we could all use a taste of terror from time to time. We even made the dreary trek to the Shadow Isles to lift Yorick's spirits—who would've known he's a big fan of soul music?—and give him some love that's been long overdue. Our last pit stop was to bot lane, where we adjusted the knobs on three supports who have been overpowering their peers.

Throw in some item changes and you've got the gist of this patch! Shuffle on over to the Rift, and we'll see ya in the next one.

Champions[edit]

AlistarSquare.png Alistar  
Q base damage decreased later. E empowered basic attack bonus damage decreased.

Alistar has been thwacking his enemies (and his bell) in Pro and other levels of play. As one of the top three tank supports at the moment alongside Rell and Thresh, he's able to bring too much beef for his damage and threat potential. We're giving his damage a ding down to make his output more reasonable.

Pulverize.png Q - Pulverize
BASE DAMAGE : [60/105/150/195/240] 60/100/140/180/220

Trample.png E - Trample

EMPOWERED BASIC ATTACK : [35-290 (levels 1-18) bonus magic damage] 20-275 (levels 1-18) bonus magic damage

AmumuSquare.png Amumu  
Q cost decreased. E cooldown decreased.

Since his explosive preseason debut, Amumu has slipped back to being a miserable mummy, especially in Skilled and Elite play. We're giving him more access to his spells to let him tear up, this time in happiness and in the jungle.

Bandage Toss.png Q - Bandage Toss
COST : [50/55/60/65/70 mana] 30/35/40/45/50 mana

Tantrum.png E - Tantrum

COOLDOWN : [10/9/8/7/6 seconds] 9/8/7/6/5 seconds

AsheSquare.png Ashe  
R cooldown decreased later.

In comparison to her fellow marksmen, Ashe has been feeling left out in the cold. We're lowering the cooldown on her ultimate to let our Warmother make aggressive plays more often.

Enchanted Crystal Arrow.png R - Enchanted Crystal Arrow
COOLDOWN : [100/90/80 seconds] 100/80/60 seconds

BraumSquare.png Braum  
E cooldown decreased. R maximum knock up duration increased later.

With other melee supports icing out our mustached man, Braum's heart needs a warm buff. We're giving Braum more opportunities to jump in to protect his friends (and poros).

Unbreakable.png E - Unbreakable
COOLDOWN : [18/16/14/12/10 seconds] 16/14/12/10/8 seconds

Glacial Fissure.png R - Glacial Fissure

MAXIMUM KNOCK UP DURATION : [1/1.25/1.5 seconds] 1/1.5/2 seconds

HecarimSquare.png Hecarim  
E bonus movement speed decreased later.

Despite our adjustments in 11.6, Hecarim's still one hecking huge horse and it's clear we undershot the bar. This time, we're targeting a standout frustration: his ability to hoof it across the map, gallop into a gank, and steamroll his targets. To rein him in, we're lowering the cap on his upfront burst and gap-closing potential.

Devastating Charge.png E - Devastating Charge
BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED : [25-75% (based on time active)] 25-65% (based on time active)

IvernSquare.png Ivern  
E base damage decreased later.

With Daisy's bugfix in 11.6 and its subsequent boost in damage, everything's been coming up roses for Ivern. We're cutting down his mid-game damage so that when he's able to snowball, his enemies aren't completely rolled over.

Triggerseed.png E - Triggerseed
BASE DAMAGE : [70/95/120/145/170] 70/90/110/130/150

Kai'SaSquare.png Kai'Sa  
R cooldown increased early.

Kai'Sa's strength lies in striking when the iron's hot: dashing to isolated enemies to burst them down, then sidestepping just as quickly. Her ult adds another level of safety, especially early game, so we're targeting its uptime to give opponents a chance to catch her in lane.

Killer Instinct.png R - Killer Instinct
COOLDOWN : [110/90/70 seconds] 130/100/70 seconds

KindredSquare.png Kindred  
Q bonus damage ratio increased. E cooldown decreased.

Kindred could use a helping paw, so we're giving this duo a love tap by giving their abilities a little more uptime and a little more oomph.

Dance of Arrows.png Q - Dance of Arrows
BONUS DAMAGE RATIO : [65% AD] 75% AD

Mounting Dread.png E - Mounting Dread

COOLDOWN : [16/15/14/13/12 seconds] 14/13/12/11/10 seconds

LissandraSquare.png Lissandra  
Q base damage increased.

Yet another Freljord friend who's been struggling amongst her peers—we're returning some power back to the Iceborn to help her knock her enemies down cold.

Ice Shard.png Q - Ice Shard
BASE DAMAGE : [70/100/130/160/190] 80/110/140/170/200

MordekaiserSquare.png Mordekaiser  
Q isolated enemy damage increased.

Despite our buffs to him in 11.3, Morde is still on the weaker side, namely in his upfront damage and sustain. Giving him more power to obliterate his foes.

Obliterate.png Q - Obliterate
ISOLATED ENEMY DAMAGE INCREASE : [30/35/40/45/50%] 40/45/50/55/60%

RellSquare.png Rell  
E stun duration decreased.

Rell brings strong peel and lockdown power that sets up her team a bit too well. We're taking a swing at the duration of her highly reliable CC to keep her and her allies from constantly and consistently pulling off CC chains.

Attract and Repel.png E - Attract and Repel
STUN DURATION : [0.75 seconds] 0.5 seconds

TeemoSquare.png Teemo  
Passive bonus attack speed duration increased. E on-hit base damage increased.

Small shroom aficionado gets a sizable buff to remind us what true terror feels like.

Guerrilla Warfare.png Passive - Guerrilla Warfare
ELEMENT OF SURPRISE DURATION : [3 seconds of bonus attack speed] 5 seconds of bonus attack speed

Toxic Shot.png E - Toxic Shot

ON-HIT BASE DAMAGE : [10/20/30/40/50] 11/22/33/44/55

ThreshSquare.png Thresh  
W base shield decreased later.

Instead of space tunes, Thresh has been belting his sweet tones of misery across Pro and Elite levels of play. Players have been finding the most success around builds that max his lantern second, so we're cranking that down a notch.

Dark Passage.png W - Dark Passage
BASE SHIELD : [60/100/140/180/220] 60/90/120/150/180

TristanaSquare.png Tristana  
Base attack damage decreased.

Tristana has rocket jumped to the top of Pro levels of play. We're taking a shot at her early game damage.

Base Stats
ATTACK DAMAGE : [61] 59

UdyrSquare.png Udyr  
Base attack damage decreased.

Equipped with strong early clearing, dueling, and four eternal spirits, Udyr's been running the jungle. We're curbing the damage output across his builds to give peers the chance to start off on the right foot.

Base Stats
ATTACK DAMAGE : [66] 64

VarusSquare.png Varus  
Base attack damage growth increased.

If you ordered another underperforming marksman in distress, you're in luck—we've got Varus. Giving him some much-needed power that should help him feel more like a full combo rather than a sad side of fries.

Base Stats
ADGROWTH : [3] 3.4

YasuoSquare.png Yasuo  
Base attack damage growth increased.

We left Yasuo feeling winded from our nerfs to Immortal Shieldbow in 11.6, so we're partially walking back our adjustment to help him catch his breath.

Base Stats
AD GROWTH : [2.2] 3

YorickSquare.png Yorick  
Marked enemy champions and large monsters now Awaken nearby graves. Mist Walkers now deal damage when they leap to enemies. E cast paradigm updated.

Yorick is usually able to crush his way through average play, but recently, he's fallen behind. In addition to his absence from higher-tier games, he has room for a buff to help him across levels of play, so we're taking a first pass by making his E more satisfying and effective. Coupled with some QoL adjustments, this should help our shepherd feel less wretched, while also evening out his performance in higher levels of play.

Mourning Mist.png E - Mourning Mist
WAKE ME UP INSIDE (CAN'T WAKE UP) Marked enemy champions and large monsters now continuously Awaken nearby graves (up to the maximum of 4)
YOU WILL BE MIST Mist Walkers now deal 200% damage when they leap to marked enemy champions and large monsters
CAST PARADIGM [Walk into target range to cast] If targeting outside of range, E now immediately casts to max range

Items[edit]

ItemSquareEssence Reaver.pngEssence Reaver   

Essence Reaver is overperforming amongst peers in its class, and then some. Essence should still feel like an appropriate buy, but rushing it shouldn't be as efficient as it currently is.

TOTAL COST : [2900 gold] 2800 gold
ATTACK DAMAGE : [55] 45

ItemSquareEverfrost.pngEverfrost   

Since the changes in 11.4, Everfrost has been ever-present on the Rift. It's cool that players have found interesting ways to utilize all three Mythics, but Everfrost's damage was a little too high for its lockdown power, so we're bringing that down.

GLACIATE DAMAGE : [125 (35% AP)] 100 (30% AP)
GLACIATE COOLDOWN : [20 seconds] 30 seconds


Eternal Winter

GLACIATE DAMAGE : [125 (35% AP)] 100 (30% AP)
GLACIATE COOLDOWN : [20 seconds] 30 seconds

ItemSquareLord Dominik's Regards.pngLord Dominik's Regards   

Lord Dominik's Regard has quickly caught on as the go-to second purchase for marksfolk. We're adjusting it so it's no longer a catch-all item, but rather something to be picked up specifically for facing tanky terrors.

COST : [2900 gold] 3000 gold
ATTACK DAMAGE : [35] 30

ItemSquareSerylda's Grudge.pngSerylda's Grudge   

We've gotten over our grudge. Making Serylda's more accessible for assassins.

COST : [3400 gold] 3200 gold

ItemSquareTrinity Force.pngTrinity Force   

Trinity Force went a bit too heavy on attack speed, which cut it off from a larger audience. In turn, we're forcing a new hand of stats (and Mythic passive!) that should make it feel like a real contender for more users.

ATTACK DAMAGE : [25] 30
ATTACK SPEED : [35] 30
ANOTHER FOLD Threefold Strike now stacks on towers
MYTHIC PASSIVE : [10% attack speed] 3 attack damage, 3 movement speed, 3 ability haste


Infinity Force

ATTACK DAMAGE : [35] 40
ATTACK SPEED : [45] 40

ItemSquareTurbo Chemtank.pngTurbo Chemtank   

Turbo Chemtank quickly broke speed limits and our expectations, so we're shifting some power from its zoom to its sloom.

SUPERCHARGED BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED : [75%] 60%
SUPERCHARGED SLOW : [40%] 50%


Turbocharged Hexperiment

SUPERCHARGED BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED : [75%] 60%
SUPERCHARGED SLOW : [40%] 50%

In-Game Shop Updates[edit]

  • You can now purchase from the results of a search. Rejoice.
  • Fixed an issue where Kalista's Black Spear was ruinationing her recommended items
  • Items in the shop inventory have learned to count and will now display quantities correctly
  • Texture improvements in ARAM

Summoner's Rift Ranked Progression[edit]

We've made updates to the Summoner's Rift Ranked LP formulas and general skill detection to provide smoother LP gains and losses across the board. These changes will help ensure players receive LP at a more predictable rate, and outlier gains or losses will be less frequent.

Bugfixes/QoL Changes[edit]

  • Seraphine can no longer trigger Moonstone Renewer's Starlit Grace heal when her Passive - Stage Presence grants Notes based on nearby allies. She should only be able to trigger Moonstone Renewer's Starlit Grace when she directly damages enemies and casts actual abilities on allies.
  • Fixed a bug where AoE shields like Karma's E - Defiance and Seraphine's W - Surround Sound would not trigger Moonstone Renewer's Starlit Grace
  • Fixed a bug where Lux would trigger Moonstone Renewer's heal by casting E - Lucent Singularity, regardless of if she hit an enemy
  • Xin Zhao is no longer able to use E - Audacious Charge when he's Grounded
  • Fixed a bug with Gangplank's UI which showed square icons, not circle ones
  • Fixed a bug where abilities with periodic damage like Brand's Passive - Blaze would not trigger Spellthief's Edge's Tribute passive
  • Goredrinker and Stridebreaker now cost the intended amount of gold (3300 gold, not 3200)
  • Fixed an issue where Akali's E - Shuriken Flip tooltip would not update its damage numbers when buying/selling items
  • Fixed a bug where Banshee's Veil's shield would not be affected by item haste, only its icon
  • Fixed Bloodward's item description to correctly display the AD it grants when upgraded from Immortal Shieldbow by Ornn
  • Corrected Blade of the Ruined King's Siphon damage in game to be consistent with the values in the item's tooltip in the client
  • Fixed Immortal Shieldbow's tooltip in the Collections tab to remove the mention of attack speed
  • Neeko's W - Shapesplitter no longer grants mana charges from Tear of the Goddess and its respective item line
  • If an item with an active passive is on cooldown and the player moves Imperial Mandate onto its slot, it will no longer copy the former item's remaining cooldown
  • Fixed a bug where Seeker's Armguard would affect Kai'Sa's W - Void Seeker's AP
  • Morgana's Passive - Soul Siphon now properly benefits from small and medium monsters as her tooltip states
  • Sylas can no longer gain charges of Passive - Petricite Burst when hitting enemy champions with Everfrost's Glaciate passive or Galeforce's Cloudburst passive
