Patch History[edit]

v6.22

Last pre-season saw a ground-up rebuild of masteries with the goal of making mastery choices more about individual playstyle than numerical buffs. Though we’ve had a few balance challenges over the season, the basic premise has held up over time. We’re filling in the remaining holes in each tree with an eye toward further sharpening this ‘playstyle-first’ vision, and addressing two of the ‘problem children’ remaining in the system. Side-note: we recently shipped an article sharing most of the information in this section, so if you get deja-vu, you’re not crazy (or psychic).

Patch History[edit]

v6.1

Fixed a bug where splitting mastery points between Mastery Piercing Thoughts.png Piercing Thoughts and Mastery Battering Blows.png Battering Blows granted the incorrect amount of stats


v5.22
We're updating the mastery system to offer focused, high-impact choices rather than a slew of nuanced micro-math optimizations. Each tier of decisions now successively grows in importance, ending in your final 'keystone mastery' which fundamentally impacts how you play your champion.

Rather than just the 'Offense' tree, let's look at the types of bonuses Ferocity provides. This tree is all about getting into fights and staying there, scrapping with anyone at any time. Many of its bonuses help you against a large number of targets (attack speed and % penetration are pretty 'always good'), but bursty mages or assassins may find single target isolation somewhat lacking. Wanna deal damage, but worried about tanks and fighters getting in your face? Get ferocious and bite back.
