    [League of Legends] Patch 9.11 Notes

       (0 reviews)

    Patch Highlights

    Little Demon Tristana will be available on May 30, 2019.




    Passive energy refund decreased late; damage ratio decreased.
    We're lowering Akali's ability to deal consistent and sustained damage, a strength that's a huge part of her power discrepancy between the highest level play and everyone else.

    Akali_P.png&resize=32:Passive - Assassin's Mark

    ENERGY REFUND10/20/30  10/15/20
    DAMAGE RATIO0.9 bonus attack damage and 0.7 ability power  0.6 bonus attack damage and 0.5 ability power


    Passive bonus true damage decreased.
    We're reverting Amumu's passive buff from 9.8. Choosing this line specifically because too much of his strength is tied up in his passive and we want to keep the rest of his abilities feeling strong.

    Amumu_Passive.png&resize=32:Passive - Cursed Touch



    Basic attacking after E no longer delayed due to animation.
    Making a small QoL change that Ekko players should appreciate.

    EkkoE.png&resize=32:E - Phase Dive

    CLEAN HITSEkko will now consistently basic attack at his regular cadence after using Phase Dive instead of having to wait for his animation


    W base damage decreased, damage ratio increased. E damage decreased.
    We're shifting some of Galio's baseline damage he leans on as a support into W's ratio as a stronger reward for his AP-building, damaging mid-lane capability.

    GalioW.png&resize=32:W - Shield of Durand

    MINIMUM DAMAGE20/30/40/50/60 (+0.2 ability power) ⇒10/20/30/40/50 (+0.3 ability power)
    MAXIMUM DAMAGE60/90/120/150/180 (+0.6 ability power) ⇒30/60/90/120/150 (+0.9 ability power)

    GalioE.png&resize=32:E - Justice Punch

    DAMAGE100/135/170/205/240  80/120/160/200/240


    Base health, health growth, attack damage increased.
    Increasing Gragas' early durability and helping out his early clear speed.

    Base Stats

    HEALTH583.5  600
    ATTACK DAMAGE61.4  64


    W cooldown now scales; base damage decreased late. E cooldown now decreases when Janna CCs enemies; cooldown decreased early, increased late; shield increased.
    Right now, Janna feels like a poke mage early in the game instead of a peeling and shielding support champion. We're taking this opportunity to encourage more kinds of interaction between her and everyone else than point-and-click harass, especially in lane, so she can get the most out of all her abilities.

    SowTheWind.png&resize=32:W - Zephyr

    COOLDOWN8 seconds  8/7.5/7/6.5/6 seconds
    BASE DAMAGE55/100/145/190/235  55/90/125/160/195

    EyeOfTheStorm.png&resize=32:E - Eye Of The Storm

    NEWPASSIVEEach ability that slows or knocks back an enemy champion reduces Eye of the Storm's cooldown by 20%
    COOLDOWN18/16/14/12/10 seconds  16/15/14/13/12 seconds
    SHIELD70/105/140/175/210  80/115/150/185/220


    Q base damage decreased late; damage ratio decreased.
    Jayce is too reliable of a pick in pro play. Given his strong early game, we're nerfing his scaling to give opponents more of a chance when they get out of laning phase.

    Shock_Blast.jpg&resize=32:Q - Shock Blast

    BASE DAMAGE70/120/170/220/270/320  70/115/160/205/250/295
    DAMAGE RATIO1.2 bonus attack damage  1.0 bonus attack damage


    R damage, ratio decreased.
    Karthus is still running games over just by virtue of being a great jungle clearer. But it's the burst on his ultimate that's really putting him over the edge and making him such a dominant jungle choice.

    KarthusFallenOne.png&resize=32:R - Requiem

    DAMAGE250/400/550 (+0.75 ability power)  200/350/500 (+0.65 ability power)

    Master Yi

    Bonus attack speed at level 1 removed. Q isolated target damage decreased.
    In 9.10, we wanted to nerf Master Yi in average play and increase satisfaction for all players by creating opportunities for more skillful play. However, the changes were pretty neutral and, at the time, seemed like they'd be more impactful due to changes to Rageblade and Conqueror. As a follow-up, we're cutting back his early attack speed and some of the isolated target damage from Alpha Strike so that he loses some of his early clear speed, but still has a more reliable window of untargetability during Q.

    Base Stats

    REMOVEDBONUS ATTACK SPEED AT LVL 1No longer receives 8% bonus attack speed at level 1

    AlphaStrike.png&resize=32:Q - Alpha Strike

    DAMAGE ON SAME TARGET25% attack damage per additional strike  15% attack damage per additional strike


    Passive basic attack damage flattened. R damage decreased.
    Rammus' damage in teamfights is too high. But to ensure that we're not completely making him into a lint ball, we're pulling power specifically out of his ult and passive so that he can still hurt enemies via Powerball and Frenzying Taunt and still reflect damage well with high armor builds.

    Armordillo_ScavengeArmor.png&resize=32:Passive - Spiked Shell

    BASIC ATTACK DAMAGE8-20 (based on level)  10 at all levels

    Tremors2.png&resize=32:R - Tremors

    DAMAGE PER SECOND40/80/120  30/60/90


    Q healing increased late.
    Letting Warwick live the drain-tanking dream a bit more. While Blood Hunt is still likely the best first max, players looking to risk it all with Jaws of the Beast and bite off more than they can chew can now feast too.

    WarwickQ.png&resize=32:Q - Jaws of the Beast

    HEALING30/40/50/60/70% of damage dealt  30/45/60/75/90% of damage dealt


    Q range indicator brightness adjusted. W now gives assists when she first attaches. E movement speed decay flattened. Lots of bugfixes.
    Making some QoL changes and bugfixes for Yuumi. These updates should help lower the gap between good and bad Yuumi players without increasing a good Yuumi player's power.

    YuumiQ.png&resize=32:Q - Prowling Projectile

    I SEE THE LIGHTYuumi's range indicator is now much brighter when Prowling Projectile is first cast, fading back down in brightness over its duration for both Yuumi and her attached ally

    YuumiW.png&resize=32:W - You and Me!

    I'M HELPINGNow gives assists on champion takedowns from her teammates when she first attaches to a participating ally

    YuumiE.png&resize=32:E - Zoomies

    UPDATEDZOOM ZOOMFlattened Yuumi's movement speed decay to herself and to the ally she's attached to based on ability power


    MINIMAPFixed a bug where Yuumi's minimap icon would sometimes not show that she's attached to an ally
    STATSFixed Yuumi's missing stats display on her strengths/weaknesses radial menu in the client
    AERYFixed a bug where Yuumi was not sending Aery when hopping between allies with You and Me!
    APPROACH VELOCITYFixed a bug where Yuumi's ally would gain Approach Velocity’s bonus movement speed whenever Yuumi was attached
    POPPY'S ULTYuumi now properly gets knocked towards her Fountain if she gets hits by Poppy's R - Keeper's Verdict while channeling R - Final Chapter or Q - Prowling Projectile


    Q slow decreased; cooldown decreased late. W max health damage now scales with AP. R reverted to pre-patch 7.9.
    We’ve been following some excellent conversations regarding where Zac landed after his rework in 2017. After assessing players' feedback, we ultimately decided that we went too far in pulling damage out of him in our quest for a more CC-laden tank. We agree that part of Zac’s pattern of diving the back line and doing damage is core to who he is as a champion. Unfortunately, Zac players felt that after diving in, he wasn't able to accomplish anything more than just knocking people around. With that in mind, we're reverting his reworked ultimate and W.

    ZacQ.png&resize=32:Q - Stretching Strikes

    SLOW60%  40%
    COOLDOWN13/12/11/10/9 seconds  13/11.5/10/8.5/7 seconds

    ZacW.png&resize=32:W - Unstable Matter

    NEWDAMAGE RATIO2% target's max health per 100 ability power

    ZacR.png&resize=32:UPDATEDR - Let's Bounce!

    REMOVEDNOT SQUISHYZac no longer squishes himself down while charging for up to 2.5 seconds, becoming unstoppable and slowing enemies standing on top of him
    REMOVEDNO LONGER ICE CREAMZac no longer knocks back enemies and deals magic damage when quickly releasing R, and no longer scoops up enemies, damaging and carrying them to a target location when releasing R after charging
    NEWFLUBBERZac now bounces 4 times on cast, with a 1 second delay between each bounce
    NEWDAMAGEEach bounce does 140/210/280 (+0.4 ability power) magic damage and knocks up enemies for 1 second. Subsequent bounces on the same targets do 50% magic damage and do not knock them up.
    NEWFLUID SLIMEZac can move during Let's Bounce and gains ramping movement speed over the duration, up to 50%

    Challenger Recall

    It's time… Let the golden light shine above you! 

    In all unranked queues, Challenger players will now see a special recall animation in-game. In ranked queues, Challenger players will only see the special recall animation in the particular queue they are Challenger in. The Challenger Recall appears any time the normal recall would play, but does not override Baron-buffed recalls nor the blue effect on the minimap, to preserve gameplay readability. 

    If a player demotes out of Challenger, the Challenger Recall will go away and only reappear if the player gets back into the rank.

    Rainbow Fluft

    As a special thank you to all those who purchased the icon and ran around the Rift and Abyss with sparkly rainbows behind them, we're extending the Rainbow Fluft Icon's availability in the store and the special interactions that happen when the icon is equipped (the Rainbow Homeguard trail animation in-game and the Rainbow Poro profile background). 

    The icon's store availability and the Homeguard activation will be on until June 30th, 2019, at 23:59 PST to last all of Pride Month. The profile background will be removed in patch 9.14. 

    Get your rainbows on!

    • Titanic Hydra's on-hit damage is no longer able to hit towers
    • Getting damaged by an Aery user while having Death’s Dance equipped no longer causes Aery to continuously deal damage to the player
    • Shaco's R - Hallucinate's clone's auto-attack no longer deals 60% of Shaco's damage instead of 75% on champions
    • Lissandra's Passive - Iceborn Subjugation's Frozen Thralls can no longer take Eye of the Herald when her team steals the Rift Herald
    • Guardian's tooltip now properly indicates an ability power ratio of 0.25% instead of 0.25 or 25%
    • Dark Valkyrie Diana's Q - Crescent Strike's Moonlight particles no longer briefly reappear after it expires on a champions

    LCS Login Theme

    A new login theme will be featured on the client sometime in the future:


    • Invictus Gaming Irelia's skin bio was updated to reflect Duke's earlier Worlds win:
      • "Honoring Duke's winning performance as Irelia during the 2018 World Championship. This is Duke's second World Champion skin, following his win with SKT at the 2016 World Championship."
    • New skins bios now on the PBE:
      • Skin line:
        • Demonic
      • Skin Bios:
        • Gatekeeper Galio: "One of the great dukes of Hell, Galio stands before his kingdom's black gates as the judge of all sinners, casting souls into their proper torments. Attempting to invoke him generally ends in tragedy, as he's several hundred feet tall and refuses to shrink in the service of mortals."
        • Battle Academia Lux Prestige Edition: "Now in her second year at Durandal Academy, Lux has been hardened by the harrowing trials, losses, and betrayals that punctuated her freshman experience. Following the climactic clash with a certain Rogue God-Weapon, Lux has mastered her powers and risen to take her place as head of the Sorcery Club, as well as the new class president."
        • Little Demon Tristana: "A witch who is now one of the great queens of Hell, Tristana commands a vast army of lesser demons and rules the twin Aspects of Ruin and Woe. Mortals attempting to invoke her will find a variety of tempting contracts, but signers beware: Tristana's ultimate goal is bathing her signatories-- as well as the world-- in hellfire."
        • Demon Vi: "One of the great generals of Hell, Vi brutalizes the tormented with acts of martial savagery, arbitrarily raining lazy blows upon the damned. Invoking her in the mortal realm must be done cautiously, as she responds only to a worthy opponent... and only for so long."
    • Battle Academia Jayce special border updated:
