Patch 7.12 Notes

Posted on at 11:06 AM by Moobeat

Patch 7.12 is on the way and the official patch notes have been posted!
Continue reading for complete notes, including previous of the upcoming Dawnbringer Riven and Nightbringer Yasuo skins, the Legendary Versus event, summoner icons, and more!

Here's the full 7.12 patch notes:
Howdy, friends.

7.12’s the first patch in a bit that hasn’t come with a new or updated champion, but that doesn’t mean it’s one to sleep on. Required reading for your 7.12 matches: check out the support item sweep. We’re looking to create better item build diversity between tankier supports and their Enchanter compatriots, and changes run the gamut from cost adjustments up to a full-on rework to Zeke’s Harbinger (now Zeke’s Convergence). Past that, we have a healthy assortment of balance work, both to those recent projects we mentioned earlier as well as a few faces we haven’t seen for a bit. 

We’ve also got some wins outside the game! This is the first patch that’ll be played fully on the 10-ban system, and we’re excited to keep watching how the ban meta shapes up. The Crowd Control Score promised in midseason is here as well, and Honor is rollin' in first for OCE. Lastly, we’ve got a swaggy pair of legendary skins for Riven and Yasuo – solo lanes have never looked so fly.

That’s it for this set of notes! Go get ‘em, champs.

Honor Update

Honor has been given a complete overhaul. With initial release in OCE this patch and a global launch in 7.13, you’ll see a new voting screen, the addition of a persistent Honor level, and rewards for consistently honourable play. Expect a full primer soon!

NEWVoting screen

VOTING SCREENAfter each game, honour one teammate
HONOR CATEGORIESFriendly, Helpful, Teamwork, Honorable Opponent ⇒ Great shotcalling, Stayed cool, GG

Post-game screen

NEWPOST-GAME CEREMONYIf the majority of your team honours you, you get a shoutout for the whole lobby
NEWHONOR LEVELSStarting at level 2, consistent honourable play unlocks an evolving Honor level, displayed on the profile page. You will move up even if you are not honoured, providing you’re always playing to win. Dropping below level 2 (by getting penalised) temporarily locks you out of all Honor rewards

Loading screen

UPDATEDFLAIRAt Honor level 3 and above, receiving honour in the post-game screen unlocks a loading screen flair for your next game. Your loading screen flair design levels up as you do

Rewards

UPDATEDKEY FRAGMENTSKey fragments will drop exclusively through Honor. As long as you’re at least level 2 (the starting level) you’ll continue to receive the same amount as now. and these will drop outside of the post-game screen, or on login
NEWHONOR CAPSULESAfter level 3, you’ll receive Honor Capsules as well as key fragments. These don’t require a key to open, and contain at least two key fragments. Some also contain champ shards and exclusive rewards like Medieval Twitch and Grey Warwick skin permanents

Champions

Camille

Passive cooldown reduced. Q2 damage increased.
It’s been awhile since our work to cut excessive strengths out of Camille’s kit and give her real weaknesses. Now that the Steel Shadow’s in a better place from an ability fairness/frustration standpoint, we’re in a good position to power her up a bit. Reducing Adaptive Defenses' early cooldown gives Camille more opportunity to play aggressively in lane, while restoring the damage we previously chopped off Precision Protocol keeps her razor-sharp throughout the game.

Passive - Adaptive Defenses

COOLDOWN20/15/10 seconds ⇒ 16/13/10 seconds

Q - Precision Protocol

DELAYED SECOND HIT DAMAGE180% ⇒ 200%

Corki

Attack speed slightly up. Base AD slightly up. Autos do more magic damage rather than physical.
Last time we saw the Corkster bombing through the Rift he'd been doing so as a midlaner, packing obscene poke damage and wave-clear, a potent arsenal desirable for that role. We made some changes to curb that, but they left him feeling like a whiskey delta. We see an opportunity to help him out: we like him as a magic-damage option for the bottom lane marksman role. These changes are designed to reinforce that by making him a more palatable pick in bot lane, while further pushing his magic-damage niche.

Base stats

BASE ATTACK SPEED0.625 ⇒ 0.638
BASE ATTACK DAMAGE56 ⇒ 58

Passive - Hextech Munitions

BASIC ATTACK DAMAGE50% physical, 50% magic ⇒ 20% physical, 80% magic

W - Valkyrie

NEWPREPARATIONPhosphorous Bomb and Missile Barrage can now be buffered during Valkyrie's travel time

Ivern

E damage decreased.
Ivern is already pretty strong, and with the incoming changes to Athene’s Unholy Grail (see below), we only foresee him getting stronger. As a result, we're pre-emptively taking some power out of Triggerseed’s damage.

E - Triggerseed

DAMAGE60/90/120/150/180 ⇒ 50/70/90/110/130

Jax

W now grants bonus range.
Using Empowered Strike to reset his basic attack timer is Jax’s bread-and-butter, so we’re adding a little extra range to help that combat pattern feel a bit more fluid.

W - Empowered Strike

NEWBONUS RANGEIf Jax uses Empowered Strike to empower a basic attack, it gains 50 extra range

Jhin

Q base damage down but scaling up. R base damage up.
Back when landing one shot of Jhin's ultimate pretty much guaranteed hitting the rest, his high base damage was downright excessive. Now that his ultimate is less reliable, we have room to add damage back into his rotation.

Q - Dancing Grenade

BASE DAMAGE50/75/100/125/150 ⇒ 45/70/95/120/145
RATIO0.3/0.35/0.4/0.45/0.5 total attack damage ⇒ 0.4/0.45/0.5/0.55/0.6 total attack damage

R - Curtain Call

BASE DAMAGE PER SHOT40/100/160 ⇒ 50/115/180

Karma

E shield decreased. Mantra’d E shield on secondary targets decreased.
Karma is already pretty strong, and with the incoming changes to Athene’s Unholy Grail (see below), we only foresee her getting stronger. As a result, we’re pre-emptively taking some power out of Inspire’s ability to nullify so much damage.

E - Inspire

SHIELD70/100/130/160/190 ⇒ 70/95/120/145/170

Mantra'd E - Defiance

SHIELD ON SECONDARY TARGETS50% primary target’s shield ⇒ 30% primary target’s shield

Kindred

Base attack damage up. E mana cost down.
Last patch we made some major changes to Kindred, aimed at better delivering on the jungle marksman fantasy. While there’s always a period of adjustment when a champion sees large changes to their base kit, Kindred came out struggling more than expected. These changes are just straight power increases across the board, and as players get less sheepish about new builds and playstyle, we should see Kindred’s eternal hunt become far more fruitful.

Base stats

BASE ATTACK DAMAGE54 ⇒ 57

W - Wolf's Frenzy

WOLF DASH SPEED1200 ⇒ 1400
GRACE PERIODZone duration now waits to begin counting down until Wolf reaches the cast location. Casting Dance of Arrows during Wolf’s travel time will still grant the reduced cooldown.

E - Mounting Dread

COST70 mana ⇒ 50 mana

Malzahar

Q and R damage reduced at later ranks.
Now that Malzahar’s back in mid and speccing into damage-oriented builds, we’re tailoring his late-game damage appropriately.

Q - Call of the Void

DAMAGE70/110/150/190/230 ⇒ 70/105/140/175/210

R - Nether Grasp

BEAM DAMAGE125/250/375 ⇒ 125/225/325
BEAM RATIO1.15 ability power ⇒ 1.10 ability power
BUGFIXQuicksilver Sash and Mercurial Scimitar now properly purge only the suppression portion of Nether Grasp. Beam damage will continue to tick as long as Malzahar’s target stays in range (1250 distance).

Rakan

Passive shield now properly interacts with shield amplifying effects.
Turns out Rakan’s passive hasn’t been scaling with shield-amplifying effects, which the Charmer (as an Enchanter) tends to have a bunch of. Sorry, bird boy.

Passive - Fey Feathers

BUFF-FIXNow properly benefits from effects that modify heal and shield values (ex. Forbidden Idol line, Windspeaker’s Blessing)

Minor bugfixes

QUICK CLARITYR - The Quickness’s cooldown availability now displays accurately for allies in the HUD

Rek'Sai

Base AD up. Armour per level up. W unburrow damage up. R more reliably hits targets.
Rek'Sai’s ability update has left her a bit on the weak side overall. We’re looking to push some base reliability back into her kit, so we’re upping the acquisition range on Void Rush and feeding her some base stats.

Base stats

BASE ATTACK DAMAGE55.628 ⇒ 57.5
ARMOUR GROWTH STAT3.4 ⇒ 3.75

Burrowed W - Un-burrow

RATIO0.4 bonus attack damage ⇒ 0.8 bonus attack damage

R - Void Rush

TARGET ACQUISITIONVoid Rush is now much harder to dodge. Rek’Sai’s target should no longer be able to walk out of damage range without exceptional amounts of movement speed (or a dash/flash).

Rumble

Heat drains more slowly. Q cooldown higher early, damage increased, now does decreased damage to minions. W shield amount up, duration down. E slow and damage up.
We want Rumble’s opponents to have a clearer window to pick fights against him during laning phase. Flamespitter’s short cooldown allowed Rumble to be a constant threat against champions while taking no minion damage from trades (fun fact: ability damage doesn’t draw minion aggro), and this left no window for opponents to capitalise on him. We’re also making the heat system more intuitive and easier to pick up for new Rumble players.

Passive - Junkyard Titan

HEAT DECAY START3 seconds (4 if Flamespitter was used) ⇒ 4 seconds
HEAT DECAY RATE0.5 seconds ⇒ 1 second
HEAT DECAY AMOUNT5 per tick for 5 ticks, then 10 per tick ⇒ 10 per tick

Q - Flamespitter

DAMAGE TO MINIONS100% ⇒ 75%
COOLDOWN6 seconds at all ranks ⇒ 10/9/8/7/6 seconds
BASE DAMAGE75/135/195/255/315 ⇒ 135/180/225/270/315
RATIO1.0 ability power ⇒ 1.1 ability power

W - Scrap Shield

DURATION2 seconds ⇒ 1.5 seconds
BASE SHIELD50/80/110/140/170 ⇒ 80/110/140/170/200

E - Electro Harpoon

BASE DAMAGE45/70/95/120/145 ⇒ 60/85/110/135/160
SLOW30/40/50/60/66% ⇒ 30/40/50/60/70%

Xayah

Can’t attack while casting Q, W cooldown increased.
Xayah’s bringing a little bit too much damage during longer team fights later in the game, so we’re reducing how often she gets access to her steroid.

Q - Double Daggers

REMOVED“TRIPLE” DAGGERS?Xayah can no longer basic attack while Double Daggers is firing

W - Deadly Plumage

COOLDOWN16/15/14/13/12 seconds ⇒ 20/19/18/17/16 seconds

Zac

W and E damage reduced.
Zac’s damage is on the high side for a tank, so we’re dialing that back. We’re sure he’ll bounce back from these changes.

W - Unstable Matter

DAMAGE40/55/70/85/100 ⇒ 30/45/60/75/90

E - Elastic Slingshot

DAMAGE80/130/180/230/280 ⇒ 60/110/160/210/260

Heimerdinger & Zyra Pet Targeting

Addressing a loophole that allowed Heimerdinger and Zyra to “attack” a target without actually attacking. This let them sidestep some of the intended risks of telling turrets/plants what to attack: standing still long enough to actually fire the attack, and drawing minion aggro as a result.
FOLLOW THROUGHHeimerdinger and Zyra must now actually fire a basic attack to command turrets or plants to focus a target. Issuing an attack command and immediately cancelling it no longer triggers the redirect.

Support Items

At the moment, Locket of the Iron Solari and Redemption are such a dominant pair that most supports feel forced to build those two first. This effectively denies them access to the rest of the item pool in many games, especially given the other early investments supports have to make (boots, gold item, sightstone). The overall strength of Locket and Redemption is fine, but other items can’t compete with their uncanny synergy. Locket provides your team the durability to stay in the fight, while Redemption rewards your team for doing so.

We’re refactoring both items to have a less perfect combo with each other, and ramping up their synergy with other support items. Essentially, Redemption should feel like a keystone for enchanters, and Locket for tanks. Nothing stops one set of supports from reaching across the aisle to grab items from the other class, but overall builds should feel more distinct between the classes.

Locket of the Iron Solari

Base shield value down. Bonus health ratio added to shield.
Locket of the Iron Solari lets tanks give a burst of tankiness to their team – perfect alongside their initiation or counter-initiation. However, it’s currently best-in-class on all supports, not just tanks. We’re linking Locket’s shield strength to typical tank stats so that if you want its full strength, you have to invest in it.
SHIELD70-665 (at levels 1-18) ⇒ 65-434 (+2-36% of the caster’s bonus health) (at levels 1-18)
REMINDERLocket chooses the higher level between caster and recipient when determining shield scaling – this is unchanged. The new bonus health ratio is always based off the caster’s bonus health.

Redemption

Health and health regen down. Mana regen up. Heal decreased but scales better with heal amplifiers.
Redemption gives enchanters access to a heal – one of their class strengths – that excels in teamfights, but it’s currently best-in-class on all supports, not just enchanters. A spicy heal on healers is cool, but when it’s so easily accessible to tanks, the two classes lose some of their uniqueness. We’re linking Redemption’s heal strength to typical enchanter items and masteries so that if you want its full strength, you have to invest in it.
HEALTH300 ⇒ 200
HEALTH REGEN+75% base health regen ⇒ +50% base health regen
MANA REGEN+125% base mana regen ⇒ +150% base mana regen
HEAL65-490 (level 1-18) ⇒ 30-370 (level 1-18)
NEWUBERHEALRedemption’s heal amount is affected three times as much by heal and shield power amplifiers
NEW

Zeke's Convergence

Now builds out of Aegis of the Legion instead of Amplifying Tomes. Passive now creates slowing storm when triggered, instead of granting ability power and critical strike chance.
When we looked at the support item landscape, we saw a lot of opportunity to amplify the Warden landscape by updating Zeke’s Convergence. Wardens excel at protecting a nearby champion, and we wanted to give them itemisation that represents that fantasy. Knight’s Vow already does a good job at helping them keep their chosen target alive, but we felt there was room for an item which made them more worth the investment to keep them safe. As such, we shifted the stat palette of Zeke’s to be more tank appropriate.

We also had concerns that the item itself was too complicated to use, leading to a lot of frustrating misfires – despite its very strong high moments when used correctly. We’re making the active much more reliable to use so that Zeke’s doesn’t make you feel like you’ve spent 2400 on a gamble.
NAMEZeke's Harbinger ⇒ Zeke's Convergence

Item effects

NEWUNIQUE PASSIVECasting your ultimate near your ally surrounds you with a frost storm and ignites your ally’s basic attacks for 10 seconds (45 second cooldown). Enemies inside your frost storm are slowed by 20% and your ally’s attacks burn their target for 50% bonus magic damage over 2 seconds.
NEWUNIQUE PASSIVEFrostfire Covenant: Basic attacking a burning enemy ignites your frost storm to deal 40 magic damage per second and slow by 40% for 3 seconds.
REMOVEDCHARGESZeke’s Harbinger Convergence no longer gains charges over time or triggers based on charge count, and no longer grants 20% bonus ability power or 50% critical strike chance when triggered
CONDUIT BINDING RESTRICTION60 second cooldown ⇒ Can’t be re-bound while Frostfire Covenant is on cooldown, and the binding active can’t be cast on the ally you’re currently bound to, or other allies that are bound by a different Zeke’s Convergence.

Athene's Unholy Grail

Now converts mana regen into ability power. Less cooldown reduction.
Athene’s is in a bit of a weird spot. Its 20% cooldown reduction and regeneration (health and mana) make it feel like a pretty good early item. However, it’s in competition with Locket and Redemption, both of which are unlikely to give up their first buy priority. Rather than overbuff Athene’s to make it more competitive early, we rejiggered it into a scaling item, like Rabadon’s Deathcap for enchanters.
ABILITY POWER40 ⇒ 30
MANA REGEN+75% base mana regen ⇒ +100% base mana regen
COOLDOWN REDUCTION20% ⇒ 10%

Righteous Glory

Now builds out of Glacial Shroud instead of Catalyst of Aeons. Slow nova now cannot be triggered manually, and automatically triggers once near an enemy champion.
Catalyst of the Aeons - thanks to its eternity passive – is a good item for champions who want long, extended fights where they can make the most of its mana/health restore capabilities. On the other hand, Righteous Glory is for champions who want to start a fight now. This mix of explosive and drawn out strengths is making Righteous Glory a bit too strong at everything, so we’re removing the Catalyst from its recipe and replacing it with Glacial Shroud. Separately, we’re also adding more counterplay to its active to help make it feel more fair to play against.

Starting Items

Doran's Ring

Passive is now unique.
Stacking Doran's Ring allowed champions to bypass their weakness during laning phase, mana regeneration, in this case, and endlessly push, and shove enemies under the tower, even when behind, without any trade-off. Not cool, Nautilus.
NEWMANA, PLSMana return when killing minions is now UNIQUE.

Doran's Shield

Costs more.
Doran's Shield should be your starting item when facing a bunch of harassment at early levels, but at its current tuning it’s the best items regardless of situations. We're pulling a potion off of it both to decrease its raw effectiveness and to make it have a harder time dealing with ganks and all-ins.
COST400 gold ⇒ 450 gold

Refillable Potion

Changing the icon so it doesn’t look quite so similar to another 150 gold, green, health-restoring item.
PRETTYIcon has been updated!

End of Game Stats

We're continuing to add more stats to make you feel as awesome in the end of game screen as you (probably) were in the game leading up to it.
WHIMS OF FATEAdded Crowd Control Score: the combined duration of all CC effects you've applied over the game

Rotating Game Mode

The Hunt of the Blood Moon looms into rotation from 11am – 3am AEST between 16/6/17 – 26/6/17. Sacrifice Spirits, Demon Heralds, and enemy champions to gain points and the Demon Brand buff, which turns you invisible to hunt down your enemies.

Only 21 of the most vicious champions are available for the Hunt (10 of which will be free to play while the blood moon still rises).

Happy hunting.

Chat & Friends

Making it a bit easier to track who’s been talking to you, and when.
NEWHOW POPULARA “More Unread” bar will appear if you’ve got unread messages higher up or further down your friends list. Click the bar to automatically scroll to the message notification. This setting can be toggled off via the “Chat & Friends” tab of the Settings menu.
DATE LINESChat history once again generates date lines when spanning across multiple days. This setting can be toggled off via the Settings cog in the chat window. (Note: Toggling date lines off for one conversation will toggle ‘em off for all conversations!)

Summoner Level Progression

We’ve made some minor adjustments to the 1–30 experience curve so players level at a smoother rate, rather than spiking at levels 5, 10, and 20. Total 1–30 experience requirements are very slightly lower.
