  • UNIQUE Passive: When you’re within 1000 units of each other, you and a target ally generate charges while moving. Casting spells and attacking grants more charges. At 100 charges, the next damage instance consumes all charges and increases the AP of both you and your ally by 20% and grants both 50% bonus Critical Strike chance for 6 seconds
  • UNIQUE Active – Conduit: Target an ally to bind with them, removing all other Conduits they currently have on them [60 second cooldown]


[ Note ] The rework doesn’t appear to be hooked on the PBE yet, but the new recipe is there.


Zekes Herald


Context for Zekes Herald changes

Riot Jag Final PortraitHey guys, RiotJag here to tell you about the Zeke’s Herald update coming to PBE soon.

Zeke’s Herald on Live is an item that you can buy as a support, fighter, or tank if you really wanted to enhance the offensive power of your teammates. However, the range of champions that it is useful on was small, and the effect was not nearly as satisfying as it was powerful, leading to very few players purchasing it in the shop. The Black Cleaver update has done a great job of giving tanky champions a way to add offensive utility for their team, so we wanted to look at what supports could do in this realm. And because supports frequently play around the high value squishies on their team (AD or AP carries), we felt we could do something a little more unique for them.

The new Zeke’s Herald is a Duo Queue’s dream. A support will buy this item and then use the active to select their teammate who will drop the biggest hurt on the enemy. As long as they stay in range and work with the ally they’ve selected, they’ll build up to a proc that infuse the pair with an extreme amount of power. During this window, if the enemy team isn’t paying attention, they’ll pay the price (yes, that really is 50% Crit and 20% AP)!

Grab a partner and get on PBE to hit us with any and all feedback, whether it’s about the gameplay of the item or if it’s the VFX. And be warned, if you’re in one of those games where you have no idea what your ADC is doing in lane, this probably isn’t the item to buy!
