Champion Updates


The Curious Chameleon gets a major update with her passive ability, now allowing her to transform into any unit with a health bar. This change opens up new opportunities for deception and outplay potential. Moreover, her W ability has been revamped to give players more control over the clone's position and play animations.


The Darkin Blade receives notable buffs this patch. His passive damage is increased, providing him with stronger trading power in lane phase. Additionally, his R movement speed has been ramped up for enhanced mobility during team fights.


Amumu’s W ability gets an early game boost as its damage output is increased significantly at lower levels.


Bel'Veth sees mixed changes this patch as her attack damage growth is lowered but she's compensated by an increase in Q ability monster damage.


Jinx experiences a nerf to her scaling this patch as her attack damage growth rate has been decreased slightly.


Kayle faces multiple adjustments including reduction in E ability AP ratio and magic wave damage from passive. However, improvements include shortened R cast time and larger AoE radius on ult activation alongside adjusted invulnerability duration while also increasing delay before ult's damaging explosion hits opponents.


Sion will lose health faster once he enters his passive form due to the increase in health decay rate.


Swain’s Q ability gets buffed - expect higher poke damages from our Grand General of Noxus.


Taliyah's R casting lockout conditions are tweaked making it easier to use strategically.


Trundle benefits from base stat increases – both his base attack speed and mana pool have received bumps this patch.


Volibear sees an enhancement in his healing capabilities along with additional W-ability based damages.
