Champion Updates

This patch brings a slew of changes to various champions, significantly altering their gameplay.


Ahri sees a health growth increase and a damage boost to her Q ability. This should make her more durable in the late game and provide more lane pressure early on.

Aurelion Sol

Aurelion Sol's Q bonus magic DPS has been decreased, potentially affecting his ability to burst down enemies.


Bard's armor growth has been decreased, but this is offset by an increased level 1 attack speed and attack speed ratio. His passive bonus damage and Q damage have also been increased, making his poke in lane even stronger.


Fiora's W attack speed slow has been decreased, reducing her dueling potential slightly.


Illaoi's passive damage has been nerfed, likely affecting her trading ability in the laning phase.


Jayce has received a base AD increase, alongside an improved W mana restoration and magic damage. His E now roots enemies on the initial cast, providing him with more crowd control.
