Patch 4.7 Notes

 

Riot Pwyff Button Rioter Pwyff: Hey Summoners,

 It’s time for a new patch! We don’t have a ton of changes today, but we’re hitting a few high priority targets that are having a heavy impact on the health of the game. As an example, we’re still concerned with high-damage junglers who are entering the mid-game with more gold and more experience than even the solo laners who had to scrap out their gains against another opponent. We’re still exploring the possibilities here, but for now we’re going to be reducing some of the power of Feral Flare so that it remains a unique item build without being a dominant strategy.

 So what else can you expect in this patch? We’ve got a few rework follow-ups in the form of Gragas and Kassadin, and we’ve been experimenting with Skarner on the interim. We know we mentioned Skarner in the 4.6 foreword, but we’ve got a stronger idea of where we can give back some of his old identity so we’re making sure we get it right this time.

 We’re also following up with our promised top lane buffs for Jarvan IV and Malphite. We’re already seeing more diversity in top lane beyond Renekton, but we’ll be keeping an eye on future candidates as the changes shake out.

 Finally, we’re making some changes specifically targeted at competitive play in the form of reduced trinket start cooldowns, increased gold rewards for the Dragon, and additional tradeoffs for fast-push strategies. We don’t expect these changes to have too much of an impact on regular play, but we’re hoping to hit some dominant strategies we’re seeing in the high-level competitive scene.

 And that’s about it! On a closing note, you may notice this patch is a bit bigger than usual – we’re shipping out files for a new audio engine in manageable chunks over the next several releases. We’ll have more information to share with you closer to the end of the process, but you shouldn’t notice any changes to the game until the new engine launches.

You can check out the full scope of the patch below. See you next time!
