Balance Changes

Remember *: The PBE is a testing grounds for new, tentative, and sometimes radical changes. The changes you see below may be lacking context or other accompanying changes that didn't make it in - don't freak out! These are not official notes.

  • Experience gain from killing an enemy champion kill reduced slightly.
    • [NOTE: Several values at play for how experience gain on champion kill is calculated. As far as I know, when you kill a champion you get XP equal to a % of the XP enemy needs to level modified by the level difference (with a minimum). That Base % has been reduced to 50% from 60% in this update, putting it back at the pre-5.22 value. ]
    • [CONTEXT: "There are changes. Kills on 5.22 are snowballing level leads a bit too much, so we'd like to curve it back slightly." - Reinboom [s] ]


  • The Culling (R) damage per shot changed to 20/35/50 (+.2 total AD) from 25/45/65 (+.15 total AD)
    • [NOTE: For reference, the current live value is 40/50/60 (+ .25 bonus AD)]

  • [REMINDER: Mordekaiser has several changes and tweaks currently testing on the PBE, including his Q, W, and E! Check out out 5.23 PBE megapost for more info! ]
