  • For those interested, here's a video of Camille's special interactions.


Balance Changes

Remember *: The PBE is a testing grounds for new, tentative, and sometimes radical or experimental changes. Be aware that what you see below may be lacking context or other changes that didn't make it in or were implemented in an earlier patch this cycle! These are not official notes.

Champions
Akali
  • Twin Disciplines (Passive) now works on structures.*

Kalista
[CONTEXT]
  • Rend (E) [previous changes to lower minimum minons kill for mana return and keep E's passive enabled while active is on CD have been reverted. They will likely return in 7.1]

Kog'Maw
[REMINDER: Kog'Maw currently has W buffs and E AP ratio nerfs on PBE]
  • Void Ooze (E) damage lowered to 60/105/150/195/240 from 60/110/160/210/260

Rengar
[REMINDER: Rengar currently also has BTN changes on PBE]
  • Attack growth increased to 1.5 from 1 

Syndra
[CONTEXT
  • Unleashed Power (R) damage per orb reverted to 90/135/180 from 70/115/160

Varus
[REMINDER: Varus has  has significant passive changes on PBE]
  • Living Vengeance (Passive) [ new passive's tooltip changed to say "non-champion kill" instead of "minion kill" - old passive also worked on monsters so should just a be a tooltip change]

NOTES



  • Meddler with context on Syndra R damage nerf revert:
"We've been seeing Syndra's performance, ban rate and play rate all dropping more than expected in 6.23. The team concluded it was better to hold the Syndra changes a patch and consider whether they were still appropriate for 7.1 as a result."

  • SmashGizmo with context on the Kalista reverts in today's update:
"Just to give everyone a heads up, pulled the Kalista changes for 6.24, will most likely bring them back in 7.1 after we see what Fervor does"
