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.

  • Crescent Slash (E) cooldown lowered to 5/4/3/2/1 from 7/6/5/4/3
  • Crescent Slash (E)  AP ratio increased to .4 from .3
  • Shadow Dance (R) now places you 150-250 units behind the target.

  • Tormented Soil (W) damage lowered to [16/32/48/64/80 to 24/46/72/96/120] from [24/38/52/66/80 to 36/57/78/99/120]

  • Ragnarok (R) active now includes "Olaf also receives a 50/60/70% Movement Speed bonus towards enemies for 1 second."
  • [Note: This movement speed bonus only applies for 1 second total, not for the duration of the active.]

  • Rapid Fire (Q) tooltip reverted to no longer mentioning doubling the E cooldown effect when attacking  towers
  • [Revert to a previous PBE change ths cycle, Q is now back to live functionality.]
  • Explosive Charge (E) charge damage increase per basic attack stacking up to four times increased to 30% from 25%

Skirmisher's Sabre
  • Passive - Challenging Smite Mark time reduced to 4 seconds from 6 seconds

Super Minions
  • Super Minions no longer benefit from their own Minion Commander buff  (+70% damage and +70 armor/MR) but their base stats have been increased to compensate. No actual change here.
  • [Note: This is bugged at the moment and the aura is not buffing normal minions. Once this bug is fixed there will be no actual change in gameplay, Just how it is displayed. Reinboom with more context.]
