Patch History

v7.19

Burn damage more frontloaded. Frostfire Covenant now procs when the passive slow is applied.

Zeke’s is both undertuned compared to its competition, and its unique buddy-system playstyle is difficult to optimize. For many of the tanky champions we’d like to see pick up Zeke’s, the basic attack procs of Frostfire Covenant are difficult to execute due to its positioning demands. We’re making the trigger more approachable by simply requiring supports to be in slowing range of their bonded ally’s target, rather than nearly on top of them. We’re also further frontloading the burn damage on ally basic attacks, which will increase the damage dealt by frequent application.

TOTAL COST : [2400] 2250
COMBINE COST : [400] 250

Ally burn damage

FRONTLOADED [Up-front damage increased from 17.5% of the basic attack’s damage]
25% of the basic attack’s damage
TOTAL BURN DAMAGE : STILL 50% of basic attack

Frostfire Covenant

SLOW BURN Frost storm no longer ignites from basic attacking a burning enemy, now ignites when it slows a burning enemy.


v7.13

ICON-VERGENCE : Icon updated to match last patch’s gameplay update!


v7.12
Now builds out of Aegis of the Legion instead of Amplifying Tomes. Passive now creates slowing storm when triggered, instead of granting ability power and critical strike chance.

When we looked at the support item landscape, we saw a lot of opportunity to amplify the Warden landscape by updating Zeke’s Convergence. Wardens excel at protecting a nearby champion, and we wanted to give them itemization that represents that fantasy. Knight’s Vow already does a good job at helping them keep their chosen target alive, but we felt there was room for an item which made them more worth the investment to keep them safe. As such, we shifted the stat palette of Zeke’s to be more tank appropriate.

We also had concerns that the item itself was too complicated to use, leading to a lot of frustrating misfires - despite its very strong high moments when used correctly. We’re making the active much more reliable to use so that Zeke’s doesn’t make you feel like you’ve spent 2400 on a gamble.
