TALIYAH THE STONEWEAVER

 

image (1)Rock Surfing [ Passive ]

When out of combat, Taliyah builds movement speed whenever traveling near walls.

 

 

 

image (2)Threaded Volley [ Q ]

Passive: Taliyah gains increased movement speed when traversing worked ground.

Active: Taliyah rips up the ground around her, firing a volley of five stone shards in a target direction while moving freely. Casting Threaded Volley converts the area into worked ground for a few minutes. Additional Threaded Volley casts over worked ground will yield just one rock projectile.

 

 

image (3)Seismic Shove [ W ]

Taliyah marks a target location. After a brief delay, the ground erupts, knocking up and damaging all enemies caught in the blast zone. Taliyah can recast Seismic Shove before it erupts to throw the victims in any targeted direction—even over walls.

 

 

Unraveled Earth [ E ]

Taliyah scatters boulders onto the ground before her. Opponents who dash through the fractured earth take damage from an explosion. After a few seconds, any remaining rocks in the field erupt, dealing a second wave of damage.

 

 

image (6)Weaver’s Wall [ R ]

Taliyah briefly channels before summoning a massive wall of spiraling rock that tears through the Rift in a target direction. Taliyah can reactivate Weaver’s Wall while channeling to ride atop the wall as it emerges. Taking damage or inputting a move command in any direction will cut her ride short.

Testing Champ Mastery Levels 6 and 7

Socrates New Portrait Hey all,

When we launched Champion Mastery, our goal was to recognize you for playing the champs you love, and give you feedback on how well you play them. We tackled the first part with Champion Mastery ranks (levels), and implemented the second with the grade system shown at the end of game screen.

Now we’re excited to add another dimension to leveling up with the system, with a higher emphasis on demonstrating your actual mastery of your favorite champs. With new requirements in order to earn them, Mastery Levels 6 and 7 show off your skill as well as your dedication.

First, demonstrate your familiarity with a champ by reaching Mastery Level 5

Champion Mastery Level 6

– Once you’re Level 5 with a champion, earn an S- or higher in a champ mastery-enabled queue, you’ll unlock a Mastery token for that champion
– To unlock Level 6 using Hextech Crafting, combine 2 Mastery tokens plus one of the following: 500 blue essence, OR a champ shard of the same champ, OR the champ permanent of the same champ.

Champion Mastery Level 7

– Once you’re level 6, the next time you earn an S or higher in a champ mastery-enabled queue, you’ll earn a Mastery token for that specific champ
– To unlock Level 7 using Hextech Crafting, combine 3 Mastery tokens plus one of the following: 600 blue essence, OR a champ shard of the same champ, OR the champ permanent of the same champ.

We structured the performance requirement and cost in this way in order to ensure this builds on the former system, rewarding a combination of skill and participation. As you rank up, you’ll unlock new mastery badge emotes, new loading screen border flags, and the announcement banner upgrade to indicate your higher skill.

To make it easier to unlock the level once you’ve earned your Mastery tokens, we’re adding a mystery coin that yields a random champ shards that’ll be available for your choice of IP or RP. The mystery coin and Champion Mastery levels are only some of ways we’re expanding the value of shards and loot (especially for players who already own every champion), and we’ll keep looking for more.

We’ll be enabling this feature for testing on PBE in the coming days, and we’re looking for your feedback. Leave us your comments and questions below, and we’ll meet you leveling up mastery of our favorite champs!

GENERAL CHANGES Banner

 

Meddler Final PortraitHi all,

Most of the mid-season stuff should be on the PBE within the next day or two. As usual it should be pretty easy to identify most of the changes, there are a few things I wanted to call out though since they may not be as easy to spot as the more standard stuff like champion adjustments. Some of this stuff will also be discussed in more detail over the next few days by the developers working specifically on it too.

  • Jungling XP’s getting adjusted. In particular Machete now gives more XP, including the catch up XP if you’re lower level than the monsters themselves. That’s a change targeted primarily at how safe and effective buddy jungling is in organized play.
  • Tower damage will now ramp up quicker against champions and will maintain it’s ramped state when swapping between multiple champions. Agro juggling during a dive should still be a good play some of the time, but riskier at low levels in particular.
  • Death timers will be getting reduced somewhat, probably between the 20-30 minute marks primarily. This is a follow up to the 6.7 changes that targeted 30 minute+ death timers, similarly aimed at reducing how punishing one fight can be and keeping a bit less gray screen time.
  • Boot enchants are getting removed. After making Homeguard a universal effect post 20 minutes we wanted to see how the boot enchant system played out. One of the main consequences has been Alacrity on a lot of champions, which as lead to noticeably higher average movement speeds. That throws off balance on a number of things, skillshots and ground targeted AOEs in particular, so we’d like to get average speeds back to a more appropriate spot. Removing boot enchants, now that the most impactful and significant is always provided, was one of the best ways we identified to do that.
  • Baron buff duration’s going up a bit, in part to draw clear distinctions between it and the Elder Dragon buff (Elder dragon’s around half the length, and on a longer respawn timer than normal dragons, so there shouldn’t be too many cases of each team taking one of the two and then the game stalling until both are gone).

Grievous Wounds [ Debuff ]

  • Will now reduce all healing by 40%, not just self-healing.

Additionally, Tibbers will heal for 50% of his missing Health if Annie dies; he’ll also automatically aggro on the Champion that killed Annie if he’s within 1200 range;

Alt+Click on Annie will now make Tibbers follow Annie.

New effect: Tibbers Enrages when summoned; Annie stuns a Champion with Pyromania; and when Annie dies;

Enrages: Tibbers gains 275% Attack Speed and 100% Movement Speed, with the AS buff decaying as Tibbers attacks and the movespeed decaying over-time. Both numbers decay completely after 3 seconds. While Enraged, Tibbers ghosts through units.

Change Boxmalzahar_abilities_eMalefic Visions [ E ]

Nidalee Final Champion Portrait

 

Nerf BoxTakedownTakedown [ Q ]

  • Execute bonus damage changed from 1.5% bonus damage per 1% missing HP to 1/1.25/1.5/1.75%.

 

 

Rengar Final Portrait

 

Quality of Life Box FinalUnseen_PredatorUnseen Predator / Ferocity [ Passive ]

  • Passive leap strike now procs Statikk Shiv and all other on-hit items.

 

 

Quality of Life Box FinalSavagerySavagery [ Q ]

  • Fixed a bug where Savagery was nullifying the damage from dead man’s plate and Spellblade (Sheen).

 

Quality of Life Box FinalBola_StrikeBola Strike [ E ]

  • Cast no longer maintains cast location, but maintains directional when moved during cast time. (Cast location was obtained at the start of cast, if Rengar jumps over or moves drastically around this point (commonly Flash & Unseen Predator), his bola can go in seemingly random direction. This change should prevent a lot of the “bola going in random direction” since it maintains the direction of cast, and will move accordingly with Rengar.)
  • Fixed a bug where Bola cast time on live is most commonly at 0.25 seconds, so Bola cast time now consistently 0.25. We can reevaluate in later patches if this is still an issue.
  • Fixed a bug where entering empowered mode while casting Bola would cast Empowered Bola to be on cooldown, or immediately kick Rengar out of ferocity mode.

OBJECTIVES Banner

 

Riot Gmang Final PortraitHey everybody,

Hopefully you’ve had the chance to check out our Dragon and Mage changes for mid-season. We’ve got a bunch of other objective changes to Summoner’s Rift going in the patch, and I wanted to share those + context with ya’ll and take your questions and feedback!

Everything is subject to tuning and future iteration, of course.

Rift Herald

We’re pushing to make Rift Herald a more unique and meaningful objective for those looking to dominate the top half of the map. This new Rift Herald should be a more contestable objective with a clearer purpose: long-term selfish power for one team member – especially a lone-wolf or split push character.

  • Rift Herald now spawns at 6 minutes and never respawns
  • Rift Herald’s stats significantly increased (should be much harder to solo)
  • Doom’s Eve removed and replaced with a unique Superbuff:
    • Lasts 20 minutes and persists through death
    • While alone, you gain some damage reduced vs. champions and build Corruption stacks
    • At 100 stacks, your next attack discharges all Corruption to deal bonus magic damage (works on almost anything, including minions and towers; damage is reduced for ranged attacks)
    • Corruption stack rate and discharge damage scale with champion level

Hopefully this excites top laners, junglers, and some mids. We’re keeping an eye on it to ensure it’s powerful, but also contestable and not too game-ending.

Red and Blue Buffs

Late-game, Red and Blue buff have been somewhat ignorable these days. We’re buffing and compressing their power in the mid-late game to make them more appreciable objectives to leverage or steal, especially in games that are in a standstill and need things to fight over and create power windows.

  • Red Buff
    • Burn now applies a damage tick immediately on apply or reapply (stronger attack-speed scaling); damage-per-tick reduced to compensate
    • Health regen now scales steeply with champ level but turns off when in combat with champions or epic monsters (currently triples at level 6 and again at level 11!)
  • Blue Buff
    • AP per level replaced with +15% total Ability Power (like Rabadon’s Deathcap effect)
    • Mana regen based on max Mana doubled (flat regen unchanged)
  • Buff Durations
    • Red and Blue will last the same duration on your first clear, but all Red and Blue buffs after that will have a 90-second duration instead of 120

When you’re looking to make a play in mid-late game, buff camps should be juicier targets now, especially if you can steal them from the enemy’s side of the map!

Camp Respawn Timers

In order to facilitate more coordinated and contested objective play at all skill levels, we’re making a some UI changes. This also has the benefit of reducing timekeeping and chat-typing work.

  • When a camp that has a timer (Red, Blue, Dragon, Baron, Rift Herald) has less than 60 seconds to spawn, its timer is revealed to both teams (regardless of their vision of the camp), and an “about to spawn” icon appears in the minimap (will replace regular camp icon if you still haven’t seen the cleared camp)
  • The respawn icon starts dull at 60 seconds to spawn and becomes bright at 20 seconds

We generally like seeing more fights around objectives, and promoting objective awareness like this can help a lot. After getting used to the new UI, rallying your team around a Dragon spawn or even a buff steal can often be done with a simple ping instead of having to type things out in chat.

Turrets

Turrets have several changes in store. Overall, we want them to be more defendable places to stand your ground, reduce their takedown reward compared to other objectives, clean up some of their mechanics, and rebudget their defenses so things other than marksmen basic attacks can contribute more to turret takedowns.

  • Turret Damage Ramp
    • Inner and Outer turrets more quickly ramp up their damage when attacking champions, and they maintain full damage when switching targets.
    • Inner and Outer turrets only take 4 shots to ramp up to full damage (instead of 5).
  • Turret Takedown Rewards
    • Outer turret total gold reward reduced, though local gold reward is increased (local gold 220 -> 300, global gold 125 -> 100)
    • Inner turret gold rewards reduced (local gold 250 -> 175, global gold 150 -> 125) and XP reward removed
    • Inhibitor turret local gold reward increased (0 -> 50)
  • AP Damage Conversion
    • When your attacks trigger AP damage conversion (occurs when attacking a turret while your AP is more than double your bonus AD), the converted damage is now magic instead of physical
  • Turret Stats
    • Base Armor/MR increased (from 0 to 40), Base Health decreased (from 4000 to 3300)
    • Turrets are now subject to penetration (generally tankier than Live unless you have about 20 penetration or have a true damage proc; overall a small nerf to marksmen damage, but a buff to some mages and assassins)
    • Reinforced Armor converted from 200 Armor/MR to 66.67% damage reduction

Overall, diving and taking turrets should be less of a freebie than what we’ve seen recently.

Let’s hear your thoughts!

Four new dragons will replace the existing stack system. They appear in a random order until the 35th minute, when the Elder dragon lands (after the last dragon has been killed, he won’t replace it like Baron replaces the Herald).

Taric_PassiveBravado [ Passive ]

Taric infuses his next two basic attacks whenever he casts an ability. He swings faster with these two attacks, which deal increased damage and reduce his cooldowns.

 

 

Taric_QStarlight’s Touch [ Q ]

Taric heals himself and all nearby allies based on the number of Starlight’s Touch charges he’s stored. Taric generates up to three charges over time.

 

 

Taric_WBastion [ W ]

All of Taric’s abilities are simultaneously cast from both Taric and his linked ally.

Passive: Bastion increases Taric’s armor.

Active: Taric links with an ally, shielding them from damage. Bastion remains on Taric’s ally until he recasts it onto another ally, or the two move far enough apart to break their link.

 

 

Taric_EDazzle [ E ]

After a brief delay, Taric fires out a short wave of celestial energy in a target direction that stuns all enemies struck.

 

 

Taric_RCosmic Radiance [ R ]

Taric calls on the stars themselves for protection. After a moderate delay, he and all nearby allies become invulnerable for a few seconds.
