Overview
Patch 11.1

Aaaand we're back! New year, new season, same old us, here with one last round of adjustments before Ranked kicks into gear. Keep in mind that we already took a first pass before the holidays in 10.25b, so this one is smaller in scale.

Past champions and items, we've got a clarification on lifesteal (look for the yellow sword!), a spicy tweak to the unlock system for Grandmaster and Challenger, and all our best wishes as you sail gracefully through your placements.

Marauder Kled, Marauder Kalista, Marauder Xin Zhao, Warden Quinn, and Warden Gragas will be available on January 7, 2021.

Champions[edit]

FiddlesticksSquare.png Fiddlesticks  
W cooldown increased.

Fiddlesticks has been reaping too many rewards in the new jungle.

Bountiful Harvest.png W - Bountiful Harvest
COOLDOWN : [9/8.5/8/7.5/7 seconds] 10/9.5/9/8.5/8 seconds

GnarSquare.png Gnar  
Mega Gnar Q base damage and slow increased. Mini Gnar E attack speed duration increased. Mega Gnar E range increased.

Giving Gnar more target access and sticking power in his Mega form so he can have more impact beyond just hopping in and casting his ultimate.

Boulder Toss.png Q - Boulder Toss
BASE DAMAGE : [5/45/85/125/165] 25/70/115/160/205
SLOW : [15/20/25/30/35% for 2 seconds] 30/35/40/45/50% for 2 seconds

Crunch.png E - Crunch

RANGE : [600] 675

Hop.png E - Hop

ATTACK SPEED DURATION : [4 seconds] 6 seconds

KarmaSquare.png Karma  
E shield strength increased late.

Karma has been a little too weak since the preseason changes, so we're amping up her durability.

Inspire.png E - Inspire
SHIELD : [80/110/140/170/200 (+50% AP)] 80/120/160/200/240 (+50% AP)

Master YiSquare.png Master Yi  
Q cooldown increased later.

Master Yi is too powerful in Average play, so we're bumping down the amount of time he's invulnerable in team fights.

Alpha Strike.png Q - Alpha Strike
COOLDOWN : [18/17/16/15/14 seconds] 18/17.5/17/16.5/16 seconds

PantheonSquare.png Pantheon  
Base health regen decreased. W empowered AD scaling decreased.

A simple adjustment as Pantheon's just a tad too strong across the board.

Base Stats
HEALTH REGEN : [10] 9

Shield Vault.png W - Shield Vault

EMPOWERED AD SCALING : [135-165%] 120-165%

QiyanaSquare.png Qiyana  
Base health regen and attack damage increased.

Qiyana is weak for all but the most skilled players. We're giving her some general power for when she isn't able to capitalize on clutch roams.

Base Stats
HEALTH REGEN : [8.5 (+0.65 per level)] 9 (+0.9 per level)
ATTACK DAMAGE : [64] 66

RyzeSquare.png Ryze  
Q cost now scales.

Ryze is struggling in all roles, so we're giving him back some mana.

Overload.png Q - Overload
COST : [40 mana] 40/38/36/34/32 mana

XayahSquare.png Xayah  
E cooldown and cost decreased.

Xayah is having a hard time right now. In addition, since Essence Reaver is now a less appealing first item for her next to Mythics, we're helping her access her key ability more often and earlier.

Bladecaller.png R - Bladecaller
COOLDOWN : [12/11/10/9/8 seconds] 10/9.5/9/8.5/8 seconds
COST : [40 mana] 30 mana

YasuoSquare.png Yasuo  
Base AD growth decreased. Passive bonus crit strike chance increased; excess crit strike to AD conversion decreased.

We're giving both brothers a stronger two-item power spike. This will give them the 100% crit strike chance that they used to enjoy pre-item rework. To balance the increase in early damage, we're decreasing their overall damage output. As a reminder, Guinsoo's Rageblade was changed in 10.25 to interact differently with Yasuo and Yone's Intent passives, which also impacts their general crit power strike. We're also clarifying the excess crit strike chance to bonus AD conversion tooltip for easier comprehension.

Base Stats
AD GROWTH : [3.2] 2.2

Way of the Wanderer.png Passive - Way of the Wanderer

INTENT BONUS CRIT STRIKE CHANCE : [100%] 150%
INTENT EXCESS AD CONVERSION : [1% crit strike converts to 0.5 AD] 1% crit strike converts to 0.4 AD

YoneSquare.png Yone  
Base AD growth decreased. Passive bonus crit strike chance increased; excess crit strike to AD conversion decreased.

Brothers stick together; see Yasuo.

Base Stats
AD GROWTH : [3] 2

Way of the Hunter.png Passive - Way of the Hunter

INTENT BONUS CRIT STRIKE CHANCE : [100%] 150%
INTENT EXCESS AD CONVERSION : [1% crit strike converts to 0.5 AD] 1% crit strike converts to 0.4 AD

Champion Base Stat Cleanup 

We've cleaned up some champions' base stats over the years and are rounding out the remaining 99 champions.

BASE AD, ARMOR, MR, MANA : Rounded to the nearest 1
BASE HEALTH & MANA REGEN : Rounded to the nearest 0.1 or 0.25
AD / MR / ARMOR GROWTH : Rounded to the nearest 0.01. Except for Vel'Koz's AD growth, which is 3.142.
MANA REGEN GROWTH : Rounded to the nearest 0.1

Items[edit]

ItemSquareArchangel's Staff.pngArchangel's Staff   

The buffs to Tear in patch 10.24 helped Tear-friendly champions across the board, but we're still looking to improve overall satisfaction for the item line.

BUILD PATH : [Tear of the Goddess + Sapphire Crystal + Needlessly Large Rod + 1000 gold] Tear of the Goddess + Amplifying Tome + Needlessly Large Rod + 915 gold
ABILITY POWER : [60] 65 (this applies to Seraph's Embrace as well)
AWE AP PERCENTAGE FROM MANA : [3%] 2%

ItemSquareIonian Boots of Lucidity.pngIonian Boots of Lucidity   

Lucidity has been weaker in preseason compared to other options. Looking to bump it up a bit.

ABILITY HASTE : [15] 20

ItemSquareManamune.pngManamune   

Manamune and Muramana have begun to heavily influence marksman item choices. Its value for its relative cost has made it almost always the best 2nd item choice, even rivaling Mythic items for the 1st purchase. We're adjusting Manamune's cost to open up decision-making for AD legendary items.

TOTAL COST : [2600] 2900
BUILD PATH : [Tear of the Goddess + Caulfield's Warhammer + Sapphire Crystal] Tear of the Goddess + Caulfield's Warhammer + Long Sword (stats unchanged)
AWE AD PERCENTAGE FROM MANA : [2%] 2.5% (continues to Muramana)

ItemSquareMuramana.pngMuramana   

Continuing from above! In 10.25, we limited Muramana's effect to only trigger on spells that deal physical damage to rein in its purchase on AP mages. This made champions like Ezreal and Corki sad. With other changes to Seraph's in 11.1, we believe we can lift the restriction and lower the power of the Shock passive, which is appealing to mages.

SHOCK AD PERCENTAGE FROM MANA : [4%] 2.5%
THIS MIGHT COME AS A SHOCK Shock is no longer limited to physical damage spells

ItemSquareRunaan's Hurricane.pngRunaan's Hurricane   

We hoped that a bigger, more expensive Runaan's would appeal to more marksmen as a fourth or fifth item choice. This isn't panning out, and champs who want it as their second item are suffering from the high cost of their Mythic+Runaan's+IE core build. We're rebalancing Runaan's to feel better as a second purchase.

ATTACK DAMAGE : Removed
WIND'S FURY BOLT DAMAGE : [40-70% total AD (level 1-18)] 40% total AD
BUILD PATH : [Pickaxe + Zeal + Dagger + 1025 gold] Dagger + Zeal + Dagger + 850 gold
TOTAL COST : [3400 gold] 2500 gold

ItemSquareShurelya's Battlesong.pngShurelya's Battlesong   

Shurelya's has been trending weaker than the other options in the Mythic category at the same price (Mandate, Locket, Moonstone). With the other Mythics in a better spot, we're looking to bump Shurelya's up to par.

MOVEMENT SPEED : [40% (decays over 4 seconds)] 60% (decays over 4 seconds)

Burst Items 

We heard players' concerns that we added too much burst damage into the new items; Mythics in particular. So we're pulling back specifically on those since that's where a lot of the systemic damage was added. This is intended to keep the power level of the items neutral, trading more up-front burst for stats instead.


Duskblade of Draktharr
NIGHTSTALKER DAMAGE : [100 (+30% bonus AD)] 65 (+25% bonus AD)
ATTACK DAMAGE : [55] 60
DRAKTHARR'S SHADOWCARVER (ORNN UPGRADE) ATTACK DAMAGE : [70] 75


Prowler's Claw

SANDSWIPE DAMAGE : [100 (+30% bonus AD)] 65 (+25% bonus AD)
ABILITY HASTE : [10] 20
SANDSHRIKE'S CLAW (ORNN UPGRADE) ABILITY HASTE : [15] 25
SANDSHRIKE'S CLAW (ORNN UPGRADE) ATTACK DAMAGE : [80] 75 (this item incorrectly had 5 more AD than it should have, bringing it in line with other Ornn upgrades)


Hextech Rocketbelt

ABILITY POWER : [80] 90
HEALTH : [250] 350
SUPERSONIC DAMAGE : [175-250] 125
UPGRADED AEROPACK (ORNN UPGRADE) : [ABILITY POWER 110] 120
UPGRADED AEROPACK (ORNN UPGRADE) : [HEALTH 350] 450


Night Harvester

ABILITY POWER : [80] 90
HEALTH : [250] 300
SOULREND DAMAGE : [125-200] 125
VESPERTIDE (ORNN UPGRADE) ABILITY POWER : [110] 120
VESPERTIDE (ORNN UPGRADE) HEALTH : [350] 400


Trinity Force

ATTACK DAMAGE : [35] 25
ABILITY HASTE : [10] 20
INFINITY FORCE (ORNN UPGRADE) ATTACK DAMAGE : [45] 35
INFINITY FORCE (ORNN UPGRADE) ABILITY HASTE : [15] 25


Goredrinker

THIRSTING SLASH DAMAGE : [110% AD] 100% AD
THIRSTING SLASH HEAL : [20% AD (+12% missing health)] 25% AD (+12% missing health) (heal is now calculated sequentially for each champion hit, meaning there are diminishing returns on hitting multiple champions)


Stridebreaker

ATTACK DAMAGE : [50] 45
ABILITY HASTE : [10] 20
HALTING SLASH DAMAGE : [110% AD] 100% AD
DREAMSHATTER (ORNN UPGRADE) ATTACK DAMAGE : [60] 55
DREAMSHATTER (ORNN UPGRADE) ABILITY HASTE : [15] 25

Grievous Wounds[edit]

We have noticed that system healing sources have seemed on the strong side. Pulling a systemic anti-healing lever.
DURATION THAT ALL ITEMS APPLY GRIEVOUS WOUNDS : [2 seconds] 3 seconds

Lifesteal Clarification[edit]

In the 10.23 patch notes, we incorrectly indicated that lifesteal now works on physical damage on-hit effects. To correct the record: When it comes to added damage on attacks, lifesteal applies to all effects labelled as on-hit (as denoted with a yellow sword). Currently, this type of effect is only found on items, not champions.

In-Game Chat/Shop Updates[edit]

We're continuing to iterate on the shop and chat. We can't stop. We won't stop.
  • We've improved and standardized text editing across the shop and chat so things like CTRL+A to select all, cut, copy, and paste work as expected
  • Text editing works with mouse clicks for cursor positioning and drag selection
  • Items displayed in the shop build tree are now vertically centered
  • When selling a stacked item like a potion or ward, the stack will remain selected and only a single instance of the item will be sold
  • Pressing O and P at the same time no longer places the shop into an OP state where the scoreboard and shop overlap each other
  • Many bug fixes and performance improvements

Grandmaster & Challenger Unlocks[edit]

To make the race to be the first Grandmaster or Challenger more exciting, we've changed the unlock process. Challenger and Grandmaster are still limited to the top couple hundred accounts on the server, but players must also have at least 200 LP in Master to reach Grandmaster, and at least 500 LP in Grandmaster to reach Challenger. Grandmaster and Challenger are no longer locked at the start of the season, so the race to be the first in your region starts on day one!
