    Champions

    Kayle.png&resize=64:

    Kayle

    Armor growth, health regen decreased. Q cost increased. W movement speed decreased, cost increased. E damage reduced but now has a ratio
    We're following up with more adjustments to Kayle to make her late-game spikes more reliant on doing well and getting items rather than coasting off raw power from levels.

    Base Stats

    HEALTH REGEN6  5
    ARMOR GROWTH3.5  3

    Urgot.png&resize=64:

    Urgot

    Passive damage decreased late. E cooldown increased early; cost increased. R damage decreased.
    Was told we can't use the Urgod joke again. We're pulling back on some of the buffs he received last patch.

    Simple Changes

    Azir.png&resize=64:

    Azir

    Health regen growth increased. Q damage increased.
    Even with 9.4's attack speed buff, Azir still has room to grow without becoming a pro play nightmare. Probably.

    Base Stats

    HEALTH REGEN GROWTH0.55  0.75

    AzirQWrapper.png&resize=32:Q - Conquering Sands

    DAMAGE60/80/100/120/140  70/90/110/130/150
    Chogath.png&resize=64:

    Cho'Gath

    Q cooldown decreased.
    We're helping out Cho'Gath with some power to his primary crowd control and zoning.

    Rupture.png&resize=32:Q - Rupture

    COOLDOWN9 seconds  7 seconds
    DrMundo.png&resize=64:

    Dr. Mundo

    Q damage increased. E attack damage increased.
    We're following up on the Doctor's 9.5 buffs. More damage!

    MAXIMUM BONUS ATTACK DAMAGE60/90/120/150/180 80/110/140/170/200
    Garen.png&resize=64:

    Garen

    W passive stats increased, cooldown decreased, duration decreased late.
    First line: Increasing Garen's scaling with last-hits. 

    Second line: Giving Garen more opportunities to use Courage's initial window of tenacity and increased damage reduction. 

    Third line: Making sure he doesn't go nuts by keeping the uptime roughly similar.

    GarenW.png&resize=32:W - Courage

    PASSIVE RESISTANCES0.25 per stack, up to 40  0.33 per stack, up to 50
    COOLDOWN24/23/22/21/20 seconds  23/21/19/17/15 seconds
    DURATION2/3/4/5/6 seconds  2/2.75/3.5/4.25/5 seconds
    Leona.png&resize=64:

    Leona

    E cooldown decreased.
    We're increasing Leona's late-game crowd control so she can start fights more often when players invest more points into her E.

    LeonaZenithBlade.png&resize=32:E - Zenith Blade

    COOLDOWN13/12/11/10/9 seconds  12/10.5/9/7.5/6 seconds
    Lissandra.png&resize=64:

    Lissandra

    Q cooldown increased.
    We're hitting Lissandra's waveclear so she can't consistently out-shove her opponents.

    LissandraQ.png&resize=32:Q - Ice Shard

    COOLDOWN6/5.25/4.5/3.75/3 seconds  10/8.5/7/5.5/4 seconds
    Morgana.png&resize=64:

    Morgana

    Health regen growth decreased. W ratio decreased.
    Lookin' good and feelin' fine. But maybe a little too fine, especially in mid. Trimming off some excess power from her update in 9.5. While we're aiming mainly at mid-lane Morg, support will also be affected.

    Base Stats

    HEALTH REGEN GROWTH0.6  0.4

    MorganaW.png&resize=32:W - Tormented Shadow

    MINIMUM TOTAL DAMAGE RATIO0.8 ability power  0.7 ability power (still at 0% target missing health)
    MAXIMUM TOTAL DAMAGE RATIO2.16 ability power  1.89 ability power (still at 100% target missing health)
    Pyke.png&resize=64:

    Pyke

    Q cooldown decreased early. E stun duration increased.
    We're giving Pyke's all-in more power.

    PykeQ.png&resize=32:Q - Bone Skewer

    COOLDOWN16/14/12/10/8 seconds  14/12.5/11/9.5/8 seconds

    STUN DURATION1.1 seconds  1.25 seconds
    Rumble.png&resize=64:

    Rumble

    W movement speed increased. R cooldown decreased.
    We're giving Rumble some love so he can compete better against other top laners.

    RumbleShield.png&resize=32:W - Scrap Shield

    MOVEMENT SPEED10/15/20/25/30%  20/25/30/35/40%

    RumbleCarpetBomb.png&resize=32:R - The Equalizer

    COOLDOWN110/100/90 seconds  100/85/70 seconds
    Sylas.png&resize=64:

    Sylas

    Health regen decreased. W damage decreased. E cooldown increased early.
    We're continuing with the adjustments to Sylas since he’s become frustrating to deal with in all levels of play. These nerfs are aimed around creating weaknesses in his laning phase so that he can't be both mobile and have higher all-in damage and healing than his opponent

    Base Stats

    HEALTH REGEN9.5  7.5

    Items

    1401.png&resize=64:

    Enchantment: Cinderhulk

    Minion and monster aura damage increased.
    We're helping tank junglers feel a more meaningful power spike upon completing Cinderhulk and bringing it closer to the other jungle enchants in clear speed.
    GRILLED RAZORBEAKDeals 200%  300% bonus magic damage to minions and monsters
    1082.png&resize=64:

    The Dark Seal

    Ability power, sell-back value decreased.
    Dark Seal is meant to be a greedy purchase to eventually upgrade into an even greedier Soulstealer, but its stat efficiency is so high and its sell-back value so good it’s become the correct choice to buy (sometimes in multiples) in too many situations.
    ABILITY POWER15  10
    SELLBACK VALUE245 gold  140 gold
    3091.png&resize=64:UPDATED

    Wit's End

    Attack speed, magic resist, cost increased. Now grants movement speed. On-hit damage lower early, higher late. No longer steals magic resist but now heals on-hit.
    Making Wit's End more slot-efficient for attack speed bruisers. It can now fill the gap where one would consider Maw of Malmortius, but can't due to the overlap in passives with Sterak's Gage (Lifeline). It'll also be less of an early-rush item now that its new UNIQUE effect scales better throughout the game.
    TOTAL COST2400 gold  2900 gold
    BUILD PATHRecurve Bow + Negatron Cloak + Dagger + 380 gold Recurve Bow + Negatron Cloak + Dagger + 880 gold
    ATTACK SPEED40%  50%
    MAGIC RESIST40  50
    NEWMOVEMENT SPEED5%
    ON-HIT DAMAGE42  15-80 (levels 1-18)
    NEWHEALTH STEALHeal for the amount of on-hit damage dealt by Wit's End (33% effective for ranged)
    REMOVEDMAGIC RESIST STEALBasic attacks no longer steal 6 magic resist (3 for ranged), up to 30

    Immolate Item Combat Text

    People like big numbers.
    DISCO INFERNOCombat text for Immolate effects on Cinderhulk, Bami's Cinder, and Sunfire Cape now display running totals of how much damage each target has taken
     

    Runes

    EyeballCollection.pngUPDATED

    Eyeball Collection

    Max stacks decreased, total stats unchanged. Kills and assists both grant one stack; no longer stacks off wards.
    Eyeball Collection's 30 adaptive force has been crowding out Ghost Poro and Zombie Ward. All three runes now grant the same adaptive force bonuses, so your choice is now how you want to stack those bonuses up rather than what kind of bonus you want. Eyeball Collection is about killing people.
    MAX STACKS20  10
    STACKS2 per champion kill, 1 per champion assist, 1 per ward kill  1 per champion takedown (kill or assist)
    ADAPTIVE FORCE1 per stack (20 total)  2 per stack (20 total)
    COMPLETION BONUS10 adaptive force (unchanged)
    GhostPoro.pngUPDATED

    Ghost Poro

    Your wards spawn a ghost poro and grant stacks of adaptive force when they expire. Gain extra adaptive force at full stacks.
    Eyeball Collection's 30 adaptive force has been crowding out Ghost Poro and Zombie Ward. All three runes now grant the same adaptive force bonuses, so your choice is now how you want to stack those bonuses up rather than what kind of bonus you want. Ghost Poro is about warding cleverly.
    REMOVEDHAUNTED TRINKETStanding in brush no longer converts your trinket into a Ghost Poro. Placing a Ghost Poro in enemy territory no longer grants adaptive force.
    NEWSPOOKYYour wards now spawn a Ghost Poro when they expire, giving vision in the area until it's scared away be enemy champions. Wards killed by enemies don't spawn Ghost Poros.
    NEWBOOSpawning a Ghost Poro grants 2 adaptive force up to 10 times (max 20). At 10 Ghost Poro spawns, gain an additional 10 adaptive force.
    ZombieWard.pngUPDATED

    Zombie Ward

    No longer grants on-hit damage versus champions when clearing a ward. Ward clears now grant stacks of adaptive force. Gain extra adaptive force at full stacks.
    Eyeball Collection's 30 adaptive force has been crowding out Ghost Poro and Zombie Ward. All three runes now grant the same adaptive force bonuses, so your choice is now how you want to stack those bonuses up rather than what kind of bonus you want. Zombie Ward is about clearing wards.
    REMOVEDTOUCH OF DEATHDamaging a champion after clearing a ward no longer deals bonus damage
    NEWWARD GRAVEYARDClearing a ward grants 2 adaptive force up to 10 times (max 20). At 10 ward clears, gain an additional 10 adaptive force.
    CutDown.png

    Cut Down

    Damage versus extremely high health targets increased.
    It was still bad even after 9.5's buff.
    DAMAGE5-12%  5-15% (still at 10-100% max health difference)
    Demolish.png

    Demolish

    Max health ratio increased.
    It was bad compared to almost all other minor runes.
    DAMAGE100 (+30% max health)  100 (+35% max health)
    Overgrowth.png

    Overgrowth

    Completion bonus grants more max health.
    Making it better, especially for people who actually build health items.
    COMPLETION BONUS2.5% max health increase  3.5% max health increase
    Predator.png

    Predator

    Look, a small usability improvement!
    ZOOMThe monster burn effect of Hunter's Talisman and its upgrades no longer interrupts Predator's channel
    UltimateHunter.png

    Ultimate Hunter

    Ult cooldown reduction increased.
    It was bad.
    ULT COOLDOWN REDUCTION5 (+2% per stack), max 15%  5 (+3% per stack), max 20%

    Points of Interest from the 9.7 PBE Cycle

    Here's a brief look at many of the new things included in patch 9.7. This coverage includes preview screen shots and video taken during the 9.7 PBE cycle and may vary slightly from what is pushed to live.

    Champion Skins

    Two new skins will be hitting the client this patch - Dunkmaster Ivern and Hextech Jarvan IV!
     

    Dunkmaster Ivern

    1350 RP
    Daisy and Ivern first started as a basketball doubles pair on the mean streets of Kumungu jungle-- but then a chance encounter with then-NBA commissioner John Brambleback pushed them both into the national spotlight. They've been tearing up the court on the professional circuit ever since.

    Hextech Jarvan IV

    10 Gemstones
    The Hextech Renaissance appealed not only to those with backgrounds in science, but also to those looking for an escape from their day-to-day lives. For the young Prince Jarvan, it presented the chance to enhance his martial skill-- with technology that would have never been accepted within his father's kingdom.
