SR Patch Notes

Check out the Patch 9.22 notes  for the most recent changes (be sure to check regional editions for slight variations!) - look for Senna to release on November 10th.

We're finally one patch away from preseason AND I CAN STOP SAYING "IT'S ALMOST TIME FOR PRESEASON." If you're struggling to get to Gold like I am, let this also be a warning that you only have this last patch to get there, so good luck!

Meanwhile, URF ends in 5 days! That's right, 5 (if you include today)! If you missed the announcement on the Mid-Patch Updates in 9.21, we're extending the duration of the game mode for 1 more day. So get your cannon on until November 9, 2019 7:00PM PT.

The bugfixes that we worked on with you during the 10-year anniversary are also going live this patch! You can read about them at the very bottom in its respective section.

Patch Highlights

True Damage Ekko, True Damage Yasuo, True Damage Akali, True Damage Senna, and True Damage Qiyana will be available on November 10, 2019.

End of Ranked Season 2019

As a reminder to all you ladder-climbers, the Ranked season for Summoner's Rift will end on November 19 12:00AM PT! One-tricks, meta monsters, and Fill mains unite and get your last minute grind on for that Victorious Aatrox skin (if you're honor level 2 or above).



The Redeemer
Senna escapes from the lantern on November 10!
High-res versions of Senna's splash arts are available on League Displays!


W cost increased.
We're nerfing Ashe's early game harass so she feels a little more compelled to capitalize on the slow rather than throwing it out mostly for harass damage.

W - Volley

COST50 mana  70 mana


Q base damage decreased.
Blitzcrank is still a bit too strong after his recent changes, so we're giving him a light touch to get him to the state we envisioned for him.

Q - Rocket Grab

BASE DAMAGE80/135/190/245/300  70/120/170/220/270


Q bugfixes.
These bugfixes went live in 9.21, but we're noting them here for anyone who may have missed them!

Q - Rootcaller

LEAVE ROOM FOR DAISYIvern will now always dash into melee range of the target
THREE'S A CROWDFixed a bug where Ivern would land inside some jungle camps when dashing with his Q
ABRA-KADABRA-ALAKAZAMFixed a bug where allies would teleport to unexpected locations when Ivern would dash to a rooted target


Q missile damage after first hit decreased.
With this one change, we're hitting two birds with one stone. We're weakening Kai'Sa's late game isolated burst damage and bolstering her opponent's ability to push her away from minion waves in lane.

Q - Icathian Rain



W mark duration and bonus damage on marked targets increased.
While we've historically hesitated to put power into Kalista's proc damage due to high limits in team coordination in solo play, we're taking a different direction here and making the proc easier to access and amping the damage. We're hoping this will make it better value for her at all levels of play, and help with the perception that there should be no points in it at all.

W - Sentinel

BONUS DAMAGE ON MARKED TARGETS5/7.5/10/12.5/15% of target's maximum health  10/12/14/16/18% of target's maximum health
MARK DURATION3 seconds  4 seconds


Q base damage decreased. W cost increased.
Decreasing Kayle's laning power so she's more vulnerable early and so it takes a bit longer before she starts bullying people around.

Q - Radiant Blast

BASE DAMAGE70/115/160/205/250  60/100/140/180/220

W - Celestial Blessing

COST60/70/80/90/100 mana  70/80/90/100/110 mana


R AP ratio decreased.
We think Malphite's tank builds are in a good place, but AP Rock can be really frustrating to play against due to the low options of counterplay against it. So we're nerfing that specific aspect of his kit.

R - Unstoppable Force

RATIO1.0 ability power  0.8 ability power


R primary target base damage decreased.
Nautilus is too strong in all games, regardless of level, but we're focusing the nerf this patch on the damage that is more dependent on coordination.

R - Depth Charge

PRIMARY TARGET BASE DAMAGE200/325/450  150/275/400


Q minion damage reduction increased; execute threshold decreased. W increased dash speed from boots removed.
Pantheon persists as an overly strong (and banned) champion, especially in higher ranked games. We're making some changes to the parts of his kit that mostly impact players in those games, mainly targeting his consistent damage and wave clear.

Q - Comet Spear

EXECUTE THRESHOLD25% of target's maximum health  20% of target's maximum health

W - Shield Vault

REMOVEDNO LONGER WALKING ALL OVER YOUPantheon's dash speed is no longer increased from boots


Base AD, health regen growth, and AS growth increased. Q damage increased later. E bugfix.
Helping Sejuani boar down on enemies and rewarding her for getting into the thick of the fight.

Base Stats


Q - Arctic Assault

DAMAGE80/120/160/200/240 (+0.4 ability power)  80/130/180/230/280 (+0.6 ability power)

E - Permafrost

BUGFIXPassive now properly resets its debuff duration when reapplying at max stacks


Base health regen and magic resist increased; health regen growth decreased. W cost decreased.
We recently did some work to begin addressing the difference between Sylas' power level in pro versus solo queue. His overall power level dropped as a result, so we're giving him some general strength. However, we don't think we've entirely solved the issue, so we'll be continuing that work in the near future.

Base Stats


W - Kingslayer

COST50/55/60/65/70 mana  40/45/50/55/60 mana


W bonus attack speed decreased.
Nerfing Xayah's hypercarry DPS potential.

W - Deadly Plumage

BONUS ATTACK SPEED40/47.5/55/62.5/70%  35/40/45/50/55%


  • If her target dies before Caitlyn's Energized (via items like Rapid Firecannon and Statikk Shiv) Passive - Headshot hits them, Caitlyn will no longer be damaged in their stead
  • Ornn's second R - Call of the Forge God activation now properly knocks up enemies close to it
  • Gangplank's E - Powder Keg's barrels no longer trigger Teemo's R - Noxious Trap's shrooms
  • Game invites will no longer disappear if the game owner changes modes
  • Fizz's Q - Urchin Strike now properly breaks spell shields
  • Twisted Fate's R - Destiny will no longer block projectiles (like turret or dragon attacks) if it is interrupted
  • If Taric casts R - Cosmic Radiance and dies during the cast window, the cooldown will now reflect the proper time and not reflect his W - Bastion cooldown
  • Rek'Sai's R - Void Rush refund now properly and consistently works when enemy champions die during the cast and dash of the ability
  • Syndra's R - Unleashed Power HUD icon now properly shows how many Dark Spheres are available to use on cast
  • Nidalee's Q - Takedown's empowered basic attacks now properly deals damage to traps
  • When Sion casts R - Unstoppable Onslaught out of its range, the ability will now properly cast immediately instead of after he walks into cast range
  • When Q - Twin Bite is on cooldown, Shyvana's basic attacks on structures now properly reduce the ability's cooldown
  • Rift Herald's summon trinket now properly has the 1 second lockout period that all trinkets have to prevent accidental usage

Points of Interest from the 9.22 PBE Cycle

Here's a brief look at many of the new things included in patch 9.22. This coverage includes preview screen shots and video taken during the 9.22 PBE cycle and may vary slightly from what is pushed to live.

New Champion: Senna

Look for Senna's release on November 10th!

Release Skin 

Senna's release skin is True Damage Senna!

True Damage Senna

1350 RP
"Senna rose to fame with her stunning vocal range and iconic sense of style, but when a shady adversary from her past imprisoned her in a restrictive record deal that took away her creative independence, she vanished from the spotlight. After years of living in the shadows, she now emerges as the lead singer of True Damage with her mind set on defining her legacy on her own terms."

Champion Skins

Following the skins trailer & reveal, new True Damage skins for Akali, Ekko, Qiyana ( + Prestige Edition), Senna, and Yasuo -will be releasing November 10th!
"True Damage Ekko, True Damage Yasuo, True Damage Akali, True Damage Senna, and True Damage Senna will be available on November 10, 2019."

True Damage Akali

1350 RP
"After the worldwide success of K/DA, Akali made it her mission to recruit accomplished and up-and-coming artists to form a new supergroup: True Damage. Never before has a crew been comprised of such diverse talent, ranging from natural lyricists to renowned producers to legendary vocalists... all ready to disrupt the music industry."

True Damage Ekko

1820 RP
"A boy genius from the rough streets, Ekko turned to music as a way to express himself. His prodigious lyricism and technological savvy could have bought him a way out, but instead, he chose to stay and uplift his neighborhood. Now, he fiercely resists the temptations of fame and glory, garnering a following among the young and hopeful who see him as an avatar for their own potential."

As a Legendary tier skin, True Damage Ekko has a new voiceover and special interactions:

True Damage Qiyana

1350 RP
"Qiyana is the daughter of Latin music royalty. With her family's esteemed reputation, she has an easy path to superstardom... and yet, she has her eyes set on something grander. With her brash confidence and rebellious persona, she is determined to change the game in not just music, but the entirety of pop culture."

True Damage Qiyana Prestige Edition

"Always a fixture in the spotlight, Qiyana dressed to impress at True Damage's sold-out concert in Paris. While the paparazzi swarmed her with photos and questions, she reveled in the attention, knowing this was only the beginning of her empire of celebrity."

True Damage Yasuo

1350 RP
"As enigmatic as he is skilled, Yasuo is the veteran producer all others turn to for inspiration. His beats transcend genre, painting whole universes with wild textures of sound. Notoriously selective about his collaborations, Yasuo sees True Damage as his platform to revolutionize how society experiences music."

No Sweat!, Animated Unimpressed!


  • Thresh in-client bio tweaked: "Sadistic and cunning, Thresh is an ambitious and restless spirit of the Shadow Isles. Once the custodian of countless arcane secrets, he sought was undone by a power greater than life or death, and now sustains himself by tormenting and breaking others with slow, excruciating inventiveness. His victims suffer far beyond their brief mortal coil as Thresh wreaks agony upon their souls, imprisoning them in his unholy lantern to torture for all eternity."
  • Lucian in-client bio tweaked: "Lucian, a Sentinel of Light, is a grim hunter of undying spirits, pursuing them relentlessly and annihilating them with his twin relic pistols. After the wraith Thresh slew his wife, Lucian embarked on the path of vengeance... but even with her return to life, his rage is undiminished. Merciless and single-minded, Lucian will stop at nothing to protect the living from the long-dead horrors of the Black Mist."
  • Lucian's VO, special interactions and choose & ban quotes were updated with Senna's addition to the PBE:
    Choose: "Everybody dies. Some just need a little help." 
    Ban: "You don't have the heart for this."

TFT Patch Notes

Check out the Teamfight Tactics patch 9.22 notes:
"Greetings Tacticians! 
The Elements are here, and they are rising. The All-new Elemetal Hex system, new champions, Origins, Classes, and Abilities are shaking up the Convergence. The new set also brings a new ranked season to Teamfight Tactics, study up and get ready to climb on patch 9.23. Last, but certainly not least, we've decreased the number of each champion in the pool making forced team compositions more difficult and opening more paths to victory.
