Here are the full Patch 8.11 notes (be sure to check regional editions for slight variations!):

Greetings, Summoners,

Welcome to 8.11, part of our continuing series of role tweaks. 8.9 was mages, 8.10 saw changes to the jungle; this time around we're swinging into bot lane!

8.11 brings a bunch of changes to marksman items and runes, as well as base stat shifts across the roster. We're opening the door for non-crit builds to shine by adding or reworking new tools for spellslingers and lane bullies alike, and by reining in lane sustain to make early aggression a more effective path to victory. Many of these options should be pretty appealing to AD fighters and assassins as well, so make sure to check the changes out regardless of your lane preference.

We've also got some follow-up tuning to last patch's work on the jungle. We're seeing teams adjust to Rift Scuttler as a contestable objective in the early game, with laners becoming more willing to help their jungler secure the crab. We're slightly lengthening its respawn time so these river fights are a little less frequent, making the regular camps a little bit more rewarding to avoid pushing junglers back in experience across the board. A few of the stand-out scuttle slayers are also taking a few hits so other junglers can compete.

Of course, none of this matters if you're on Pyke's list. Don't let his support tag fool you—if you turn your back on the Bloodharbor Ripper, you'll find yourself sinking to the bottom of the sea. Or the ranked ladder. Same thing, really.

Anivia

Q cooldown decreased at early ranks. Q damage ratio increased.
Patch 8.9's mana changes hit Anivia harder than most mages, so we're looking to give her some power back. Rather than return her previous level of waveclear, we're looking to up her potential in fights.

Q - Flash Frost

COOLDOWN12/11/10/9/8 seconds  10/9.5/9/8.5/8 seconds
DAMAGE RATIO0.4 ability power  0.45 ability power (reminder: this applies on both passthrough and detonation)

Graves

Base attack damage decreased. R cooldown decreased at early ranks.
The new emphasis on early jungle scrapping is pretty much Graves' happy place, and it's left other champions six feet under. Dialing back his early dueling and putting a longer window on his full combo should slow the snowball a bit.

Base Stats

ATTACK DAMAGE69  66

R - Collateral Damage

COOLDOWN110/85/60 seconds  120/90/60 seconds

Kha'Zix

R cooldown decreased at later ranks, but stealth duration decreased. Evolved R grants additional casts and stealth duration; no longer grants stealth or movement speed in brush.
One thing every assassin needs is a way to dance in and out of a fight and safely put down damage. For Kha'Zix, that's the stealth from Void Assault . The brush stealth on his evolved R is currently giving far too much of a different strength, though: the ability to sneak around the map relatively undetected. We're removing that evolution bonus in favor of giving Kha'Zix more R casts—and longer stealth—when he's upgraded his ultimate.

R - Void Assault

COOLDOWN100/90/80 seconds  100/85/70 seconds
STEALTH DURATION1.5 seconds  1.25 seconds
EVOLVED STEALTH DURATION1.5 seconds  2 seconds
EVOLVED CASTS2 within 10 seconds  3 within 10 seconds
REMOVEDBRUSH CHECKNo longer passively grants stealth or movement speed when entering brush

Kindred

Mark respawn time decreased. First mark spawns earlier. Rift Scuttle assists now correctly collect marks.
The increased importance of Scuttle Crab has made it harder for Kindred to gather marks.

Passive - Mark of the Kindred

MARK RESPAWN TIME50 seconds  40 seconds

LeBlanc

LeBlanc can now queue up casts of W and RW (in either order).

W - Distortion

ONE-TWOLeBlanc can now queue up W - Distortion and R - Mimic'd Distortion

Lee Sin

Energy restore on passive increased. Q, W, and E now apply cooldown reduction for the duration of their reactivation time.
Recent changes to Warding Trinket have left Lee Sin with fewer playmaking opportunities. Making sure he benefits fully from cooldown reduction should give him more to do with his baseline kit, and we also want to make sure he has more access to the energy needed to do so.

Passive - Flurry

Rakan

Q base heal decreased. E base shield decreased
For a support with so much hard engage, the sustain Rakan brings to lane is a bit overbearing.

Q - Gleaming Quill

BASE HEAL22.5-150 (at levels 1-18)  18-120 (at levels 1-18)

E - Battle Dance

BASE SHIELD50/75/100/125/150  40/65/90/115/140

Taliyah

You're probably just going to want to read this one.
Taliyah has a lot of strengths that are great in pro play, and just okay elsewhere. A lot of that comes from Q's waveclear, so the bulk of our mechanical changes focus on that ability (with tuning elsewhere). Taliyah will have to work harder to shove a wave and roam so that her opposing laner has more room to punish those roams. We're also decreasing the terrain control she brings from her ultimate, as it's bringing too much utility beyond just its roam strength.

R - Weaver's Wall

WALL DURATION6/7/8 seconds  5 seconds

Urgot

Collision radius decreased. Base attack speed increased. Passive damage to monsters increased early. R no longer roots Urgot while he is grinding a champion to death.
We're making Urgot a bit more fluid to play and stripping some of the anti-jungling tuning from his kit.

Base Stats

COLLISION RADIUS80  50

Viktor

Q discharge damage increased at later ranks. R damage ratio increased.
Patch 8.9's mana changes hit Viktor harder than most mages, so we're looking to give him some power back by upping his damage when he commits to a fight.

Q - Siphon Power

DISCHARGE DAMAGE20/40/60/80/100  20/50/80/110/140

R - Chaos Storm

RATIO PER TICK0.6 ability power  0.7 ability power

Xin Zhao

Base attack damage growth decreased. E slow decreased.
The scuttle changes increased the value of early fights, and Xin Zhao definitely excels in that world. Having a strong early game isn't the problem, but being able to translate that so easily into a strong mid-game is concerning. We're toning down his offensive scaling and his ability to stick to opponents and force them to fight him so he'll have to work harder for that mid-game edge.

Base Stats

ATTACK DAMAGE GROWTH3.3  3

E - Audacious Charge

SLOW50%  30%

Zyra

E root duration increased
Zyra contributes slightly less in skirmishes than we'd like, but we're definitely not comfortable increasing her already-high damage. Some extra crowd control should give her more of an impact in those small fights.

E - Grasping Roots

ROOT DURATION0.75/1/1.25/1.5/1.75 seconds  1/1.25/1.5/1.75/2 seconds

Marksman Base Stat Adjustments

The dominant strategy in bot lane has, over time, become sustaining through lane phase and scaling up into teamfights. Between health regen and Fleet Footwork, it's pretty hard to put the hurt on marksmen in a way they can't just passively recover from. This means aggressive bot laners (whether early game bully marksmen or supports who want to poke or go all-in) feel like they have no home.

Weakening marksman sustain (health regen here, Fleet Footwork below) means damage will stick on marksmen, making 2v2 fighting a more successful prospect for the stronger bot lane. Shifting some durability from armour into health should also let aggressive marksmen like Draven and Lucian shine a bit harder in the early game.

Finally, we're nerfing marksman base attack damage by 4 and pushing that damage into their growth stat, with the breakeven point around level 9. Though that might seem counterintuitive with our goals above, it means aggressive non-marksmen (ex. Leona, Brand) won't be chipped down by marksman basic attacks as quickly—giving them more opportunities to secure presence in the lane.

Items

NEW

Stormrazor

For upfront burst and lots of kiting.
Marksman itemisation is pretty focused on marksmen who want to stand still and basic attack. With Stormrazor, we're introducing an item for marksmen with longer pauses between attacks, whether they're kiting or just have long attack cooldowns (looking at you, Jhin).

EVERYTHING ELSEGo read Infinity Edge above.

Essence Reaver

The ultimate power spike.
Essence Reaver was intended to be the alternative late-game scaling item for marksmen who care more about spell casts. However, it turned out that once you had Essence Reaver, you also wanted Infinity Edge, and at that point, you also want a Zeal item, and at that point you might as well build up to 100% crit. The overall effect was a core build of 4 items that didn't allow spellslinger marksmen much choice at all.

We're reshaping Essence Reaver around a new power spike, allowing spellcasting marksmen to double down on their spell-slinging fantasy and unleash their spells in a rapid barrage.

Last Whisper

Bonus armour penetration shifted to total armour penetration (and decreased).
The problem with an armour penetration item that only feels good against armour stackers is that most champs don't feel good about getting it early to ensure their damage stays relevant as enemies build armour (they want to be killing squishy targets instead). But once tanks really armour up, damage dealers feel bad if they didn't purchase Last Whisper earlier. We're moving Last Whisper into a middle ground so it'll still scale against tanks but feel like less of a dead-end against other squishies.
ARMOUR PENETRATION35% target's bonus ARMOUR  10% target's total ARMOUR

Lord Dominik's Regards

Attack damage decreased. Bonus armour penetration shifted to total armour penetration. Bonus damage against higher-health targets removed.
Total armour penetration is stronger than bonus, meaning LDR scales better with itself. To to keep the focus on the armour penetration rather than raw damage output, we're trimming some attack damage and pushing the price point higher.

Lord Dominik's was the only item that used this, so we're retiring it.

Mortal Reminder

Total armour penetration is stronger than bonus, meaning Mortal Reminder scales better with itself. To keep the focus on the armour penetration rather than raw damage output, we're trimming some attack damage and pushing the price point higher.

With Infinity Edge amplifying critical strike significantly, we're pushing its price point up.

Brawler's Gloves

NEWONLY TWO HANDSBrawler's Gloves' critical strike chance is now unique

Cloak of Agility

The Brawler's Gloves changes pushed these two items too close together. A spiky glove feels more crit-like than a poncho, so we're retiring Cloak of Agility.

Maw of Malmortius

Magic resist increased. Base shield value increased. Shield no longer scales with bonus magic resist.
Most champions who like Maw of Malmortius aren't looking to stack resistances, so we're tweaking its shield value to not scale with future magic resist accordingly.
MAGIC RESIST45  50
SHIELD VALUE300 + 100% of bonus magic resist  350

Guardian Angel

Cost increased. Armour increased.
We wanted to allow marksmen who face heavy physical damage to get a Chain Vest (rather than just Cloth Armour), knowing they'd eventually build it into something. Guardian Angel was a natural choice, even if it required a higher price point.

Banner of Command

Enhanced minions are highly resistant to magic and physical damage rather than entirely immune to magic damage only.
Banner of Command has emerged as an item that can effectively pin a mid laner at their wave. With how much gameplay revolves around wave control and roaming, Banner of Command does too much to shut that play down entirely..

Shurelya's Reverie

Movement speed decreased. Cost increased. Base mana regen added. Active cooldown increased.
Shurelya's Reverie has emerged as too reliable a rush on certain champions who want it for selfish reasons (rather than as a supportive, team-oriented purchase) Singed and Vladimir among them. We're shifting the stat profile slightly to make it more attractive to supportive champions and slightly less compelling as a selfish buy.

Lost Chapter is too expensive for a first component on junglers. Shifting Runic Echoes to build out of Fiendish Codex will give mage junglers an earlier power spike.

Runes

Fleet Footwork nerfs, a new Domination keystone, and two new minor runes!

Precision

Fleet Footwork

For more context, view the Marksman Stat Adjustment section. TL;DR, marksmen have access to a ton of sustain in the laning phase, which makes the choice between early and late game too tilted towards late game, and decreases the overall impact of laning decisions (like poke/bullying). Weakening the heal ranged champions get from Fleet Footwork should go a long way towards making trades feel more meaningful.
HASTE30%  20%
REMOVEDCRIT HEALNo longer gives additional healing from critical strikes
PERCENT HEAL ON MINIONS60/30% (melee/ranged)  100/20% (melee/ranged)
HEAL ABILITY POWER RATIO0.4 ability power  0.5 ability power

Domination

NEW

Hail of Blades

One of the goals of runes is to give champions options about what tree they go into based on how they want to play. Domination is a tree about burst, which should make it appealing to some of the burstier marksmen, but there is no real keystone for them. Hail of Blades should help spell-based marksmen who want to lay down a swift chunk have a keystone to promote that playstyle.
HAIL OF BLADESGain 50-100% (at levels 1-18) attack speed for the first three attacks made against enemy champions.
NOW NOT LATERIf more than 1.5 seconds elapses between attacks this effect will end
CANT STOP WONT STOPHail of Blades allows you to temporarily exceed the attack speed limit
COOLDOWN5 seconds out of combat

NEW

Ultimate Hunter

We've been looking into changing Ultimate Hat for awhile. As a rune based around a spike of power (a champion's ultimate), it's always felt like an exciting option for Domination. We're bringing it in line with the Hunter paradigm and have created a replacement for Ultimate Hat below: Nimbus Cloak.
ULTIMATE HUNTERYour ultimate gains 5% reduced cooldown, plus an additional 2% per Bounty Hunter stack
BOUNTY HUNTEREarn a Bounty Hunter stack the first time you get a takedown on each enemy champion

Sorcery

NEW

Nimbus Cloak

Battle mages should feel good about a rune that helps them get (or stay) in a fight when they push their go button.
NIMBUS CLOAKShortly after casting your Ultimate, gain 100 movement speed, decaying over the next 2.5 seconds
LIKE THE WINDFor the duration of the movement speed increase, you can pass through units
COOLDOWN60 seconds
COOLDOWN REDUCTIONUnlike other runes, Nimbus Cloak's cooldown is affected by cooldown reduction

REMOVED

Ultimate Hat

See context above for Ultimate Hunter.

Inspiration

Minion Dematerializer

Minion Dematerializer is offering too much wave control too early in the game.
INITIAL DELAY155 seconds  240 seconds

Turrets

Turret Durability

Inhibitor and Nexus Turret health decreased. Inhibitor Turret health regen increased. Nexus and Inhibitor Turrets can now only regen health up to the next third.
We want to give defenders something to feel good about when they do hold off a push on their base, while also giving sieging teams meaningful milestones other than just "tower destroyed."
INHIBITOR TURRET HEALTH3600  3300
NEXUS TURRET HEALTH3600  2700
INHIBITOR TURRET HEALTH REGEN5 health per 5 seconds  15 health per 5 seconds
BREAK THE FOUNDATIONSNexus and Inhibitor Turret health is now divided into thirds. Turrets can only regenerate health up to the top of their current third.

Turret Gold

More of turret reward gold is granted locally rather than globally.
Similar to our bounty changes last patch, we're looking to decrease the number of truly global objectives in our game and allow players who have a large impact to feel that impact more personally. Accordingly, inner turrets will now provide more of their gold locally and less globally.
INNER TURRET LOCAL GOLD REWARD175 gold (split among nearby champions)  300 gold (split among nearby champions)
GLOBAL GOLD REWARD125 gold (to every allied champion)  100 gold (to every allied champion)

Jungle

Baron Nashor

Attack speed decreased. Base corruption damage decreased. Special attacks no longer apply corruption
Baron definitely does too much damage after Patch 8.10's changes.
BARON ATTACK SPEED0.75  0.625
BASE CORRUPTION DAMAGE120  60
CORRUPTION DAMAGE RATIO0.3 total attack damage  0.2 total attack damage
SPECIAL ATTACKSNo longer apply corruption stacks

Scuttle Crab

Respawn time increased. Shrine duration increased.
The action around Scuttle Crab is making for a good mini-objective, but it's currently up too often, forcing too much of a jungler's attention onto its continuous respawn. To compensate for fewer overall Scuttle Crabs, we're pushing some experience back into the basic jungle camps (detailed just below).
RESPAWN TIME135 seconds  150 seconds
SHRINE DURATION75 seconds  90 seconds

Jungle Monsters

Experience slightly increased at later levels.
Bumping a little bit of experience back into the jungle.
KRUGS EXPERIENCE REWARD247-388 (at levels 1-7)  247-411 (at levels 1-7)
WOLVES EXPERIENCE REWARD115-180 (at levels 1-7)  115-190 (at levels 1-7)
LARGE RAZORBEAKS EXPERIENCE REWARD115-181 (at levels 1-7)  115-190 (at levels 1-7)

Last-Hit Assistance

If a basic attack would fail to kill a minion by 4 health or less, it will kill that minion.
This is solely to help transition players through the several highly disruptive patches. Every patch after Patch 8.11, we will reduce this number by 1.

ARAM

The Butcher’s Bridge map returns until June 19 at 16:59 p.m. AEST. Pyke joins the ARAM free-to-play rotation during this time.

The following permanent changes are now part of ARAM:
  • Available Champions Pool: During champ select, you may swap for a champ that’s been rerolled by any teammate
  • Expanded free champs pool (triple the champions)
  • Start-of-game base gates (similar to Summoner’s Rift)
  • Earlier surrender options (8:00 unanimous, 12:00 standard)
  • Champ Mastery adjustments (to make it a bit easier to get an S)
  • "True" level 3 starts: You will reach level 4 much faster
Along with some event-only gameplay tests:
  • New assassin items: Ghostwalkers, Spectral Cutlass, and Bloodletter’s Veil
  • Large area-of-effect heals on health pack pickup that affect both teams equally
  • Removal of Warmog’s Armour and Dark Harvest nerf
During the event, Battle Boost temporarily unlocks two skins instead of one.

Instant Feedback

We’re sprucing up reform cards with a clarity pass sometime this patch.
Reform cards are getting some spring cleaning, so we added per-game tabs for chat logs, and made it more clear which chat is from pre-, mid-, or post-game.

Bugfixes

  • Players are no longer presented with the reconnect dialogue after exiting Practice Tool.
  • Aurelion Sol can now correctly be knocked up or back during E - Comet of Legend

Points of Interest from the 8.11 PBE Cycle

Here's a brief look at many of the new things included in patch 8.11. This coverage includes preview screen shots and video taken during the 8.11 PBE cycle and may vary slightly from what is pushed to live.


New Champion: Pyke

Patch 8.11 brings us Pyke, the Bloodharbor Ripper:

Pyke, the Bloodharbor Ripper




As seen in Pyke's reveal, his release skin is SAND WRAITH PYKE!

Sand Wraith Pyke

1350 RP [Src]

New Skins

Two new skins are also pulling into port for 8.11Dark Waters Diana and Vladimir!

Dark Waters Diana

1350 RP [Src]
"Diana was once an extremist within the Order of the Mother Serpent, but now spends her days murdering her employer's enemies by the light of the moon. In Bilgewater it's less about who you were, and more about the message you send."

Dark Waters Vladimir

1350 RP [Src]
"In his younger days, Vladimir practiced at a school of medicine known for magically manipulating the humors of a patient's body. Turns out in Bilgewater there's more coin to be made killing than saving, and now he's found himself in a much more lucrative—if not messier—line of work."

New Chroma

New chroma were added for upcoming skins this cycle -  Dark Waters Vladimir (x5), Dark Waters Diana (x5), and Sand Wraith Pyke (x7)!

Miscellaneous 

  • Nautilus' in-client bio was updated:
"A lonely legend as old as the first piers sunk in Bilgewater, the armored goliath known as Nautilus roams the dark waters off the coast of the Blue Flame Isles. Driven by a forgotten betrayal, he strikes without warning, swinging his enormous anchor to save the wretched, and drag the greedy to their doom. It is said he comes for those who forget to pay the "Bilgewater tithe", pulling them down beneath the waves with him-- an iron-clad reminder that none can escape the depths."
  • Fizz's in-client bio was also tweaked [new in green]:
"Fizz is an amphibious yordle, who dwells among the reefs surrounding Bilgewater. He often retrieves and returns the tithes cast into the sea by superstitious captains, but even the saltiest of sailors know better than to cross him-- for many are the tales of those who have underestimated this slippery character. Often mistaken for some manner of capricious ocean spirit, he seems able to command the beasts of the deep, and delights in confounding his allies and enemies alike."
