Qiyana Nerf
Qiyana Nerf

Q base damage decreased early.

We’re hitting Qiyana’s trade damage, especially after she hits level 3, since it is deceptively high and is making her oppressive in the early game.

Q – Edge of Ixtal

BASE DAMAGE 80/100/120/140/160  60/85/110/135/160

Pantheon Nerf
Pantheon Nerf

Q base damage decreased later.

Pantheon remains a top-tier pick in more skilled games. We’ve decreased some of his early-game damage as it’s more impactful in higher-skill ranked games. Also, a bugfix!


BUGFIX Pantheon’s Q – Comet Spear and W – Shield Vault now properly work when taking Thresh’s W – Dark Passage within 0.2 seconds or less

Q – Comet Spear

BASE DAMAGE 75/115/155/195/235  75/110/145/180/215

Blitzcrank Nerf
Blitzcrank Nerf

Base armor and armor growth decreased.

We like the extra range from 9.19 but think he’s a little too strong right now.

Base Stats

ARMOR 44  40


QoL change for the baby girl so it’s easier to know when her empowered basic attack is coming up.

PASSIVE QOL Added a resource bar so that it’s easier for Sona to track her own passive (only visible to Sona)


Locket of the Iron Solari

Active shield strength increased.

Looking to broaden the uses of the Locket, especially in a meta where there are less AoE burst champions. The change will also apply to Circlet of the Iron Solari!

SHIELD STRENGTH30 (+15 per level)  120 (+10 per level)
