  • Biography
Driven by vindictive obsession, Morgana is a potent mistress of suffering and the black arts. Once a being of grace and light, she was ripped from her kind during an ancient conflict that broke her soul, turning her into the cruel tormentor she is today. Comforted by a prophecy that claims she will strike the final blow and gain her revenge, Morgana lies in wait, her lust for power growing endlessly.
"There is no rest while KayleSquare.png Kayle's brand of tyranny still exists."

Patch History


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

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

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 Soil.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.png Morgana
      • Base, Blackthorn, Blade Mistress, Exiled, Sinful Succulence
    • VolibearSquare.png Volibear
      • 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.
