Lore: There is a world far away populated by graceful and beautiful winged beings gifted with immortality, where an ancient conflict still rages. Like so many conflicts, this war split families. One side proclaimed themselves as beings of perfect order and justice, fighting to unite the world under their law and strong central governance. Those that fought against them saw their kin as tyrants, creatures incapable of seeing the larger view, who would sacrifice individuality and freedom for the illusion of efficiency and safety. Morgana was one who fought against what she perceived as the tyranny of her kind, and for that she was branded fallen. Morgana was not innocent, having plumbed forgotten ways to gather forbidden might to become a powerful mistress of the black arts. This goal was driven by her obsession to defeat the general of the opposition's army – her sister, Kayle.

While the two were in fact birth-sisters, Kayle struck the first blow by disowning any filial connection when Morgana refused to join her cause. Eventually, Morgana grew in power enough to not only reach, but challenge Kayle. Yet Morgana was never after a fair fight. She lies in wait, growing in power, preparing for the day that will mark their final conflict – for even though Kayle struck the first blow, Morgana would surely strike the last.

"There is no rest while Kayle's brand of tyranny still exists."

Patch History

Patch Notes 5.22

  • BASE MANA REGEN: 6 ⇒ 8.5

Patch Notes 5.18
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."

  • DarkBinding.jpg Q - Dark Binding
    • COST: 50/60/70/80/90 ⇒ 50/55/60/65/70

Patch Notes 5.9
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."

  • TormentedSoil.jpg W - Tormented Soil
    • DAMAGE 12/19/26/33/40 damage per second ⇒ 8/16/24/32/40 damage per second

Patch Notes 5.7
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!

Patch Notes 4.14
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."

  • BlackShield.jpg 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

Patch Notes 3.14
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

Patch Notes 3.13
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.
