SR Patch Notes

Check out the Patch 9.24 notes for the most recent changes (be sure to check regional editions for slight variations!)
"Hello friends! It's the last patch of the year! 
As with most patches following a huge shakedown like Preseason, we have a lot of changes and tweaks in this patch after assessing some of the initial data and your general feedback. We've also already adjusted the knobs on the some of the new drakes, monsters, and pacing components of the game in 9.23 that we're including again here in case you missed it. And while this is technically the last patch of the year, you may see an end-of-year "9.24b" balance patch (a patch with no skins or features) based off of how the game is in a couple of weeks. There'll be a separate set of patch notes for that, so keep an eye out! 
Before we go, make sure to hold on to your poison because everyone's new favorite edgy boy (and his sister), Aphelios joins the Rift in 9.24! Following her Lunari brethren's release, Diana is also getting an overhaul to her kit, VFX, SFX, and ability icons to exude more of the moonly glow of her people. 
Last, but not least, Poro King is back for a limited time! Get your snowballs ready for more fun with everyone's favorite royal fluffball. 
Take this portal if you're looking for TFT's patch notes!"

Champions



Aphelios

The Weapon of the Faithful
Aphelios and Alune will find victory in the whispers of the moon in 9.24.
High-res versions of Aphelios' splash arts are available on League Displays!

Akali

Removed the hitbox behind Akali so her Q only goes forward; Q minion and monster damage decreased.
This is a pro-facing specific change we're making since many pro players use this uniquely shaped hitbox to waveclear optimally, while most other players have a hard time accessing and utilizing it properly.

Q - Five Point Strike

REMOVEDHITBOXRemoved the hitbox behind her
RANK 5 MINION AND MONSTER DAMAGE33% bonus magic damage  25% bonus magic damage

Amumu

Q cooldown decreased early.
Sad mummy is due for a buff given his state post-Preseason.

Q - Bandage Toss

COOLDOWN12/11/10/9/8 seconds  10/9.5/9/8.5/8 seconds

Braum

Base health per level and health regen increased. W cooldown decreased, cost flattened, resistance ratios to ally and self flattened. R base damage increased later, knockup now lasts longer.
Braum is a warden—a tanky champion that excels at protecting their allies. Most wardens are great at dealing with melee enemies that try to dive their backline, but bad at dealing with ranged opponents because of their limited range and mobility. However, Braum is an exception to this generalization due to his E, which makes him uniquely good at dealing with ranged threats as well.

We don't want to remove the very thing that makes Braum unique, so we're leaning harder into it while lowering his ability to deal with melee champions relative to other wardens. This should then allow us to also buff him in other ways without having him stay as a default, safe pick in pro play.

Diana

VFX and SFX updated. Lunar Rush and Moonfall now switched keys. Passive now grants attack speed.
Some of you may already know that we've been working on changing up Diana's kit for awhile now. As promised, we've made some changes aimed at helping Diana’s pre-level-6 lane, and making both the playing as and against Diana experiences less of a feast or famine. By giving her access to Lunar Rush as a basic ability, we're unlocking one of Diana's core mechanics earlier and in the laning phase, allowing her to fight against and interact with enemies before she hits level 6. The change also allows her to effectively gank early as a jungler too, which is a massive increase to her effectiveness in that role.

Additionally, Diana's new ultimate now significantly opens her up to more options as the game progresses, giving her both teamfight and skirmish capabilities that were previously inaccessible to her. This also adds a lot of variety to how she approaches fights, so her goal isn't always to nuke a single person with a full combo.

Overall, the goal of these changes was to preserve what people loved about Diana while giving her both the tools and the variety that champions should have. We want Diana players to be comfortable with what they already know, but with a kit that may be more fun and rewarding for new Diana players as well.

VFX Updates

ABILITY ICONSBrand new ability icons to bring it up to modern standards
ABILITY VFXTouched up the VFX of all her abilities, including a brand new VFX for her ultimate and better visuals on her passive

Garen

Additional E spins and spin damage decreased.
Garen is one of the biggest winners from the Conqueror changes, climbing well above our acceptable limits. As a result, builds relying on attack speed are dominating his itemization choices. While we wanted attack speed builds to be viable, we don't want glass cannon Garen to be the only Garen people build, so we're targeting that specific approach to increase build diversity.

E - Judgment

NUMBER OF SPINS7 (+1 spin per 20% attack speed)  7 (+1 spin per 25% attack speed)

Karma

E base shield increased.
We're buffing Karma in a way that those who build more supportive items on her will appreciate.

E - Inspire

BASE SHIELD70/95/120/145/170  80/110/140/170/200

Kassadin

Q cooldown now scales. W mana restore decreased later.
Kassadin is too strong at the moment, being good at both surviving lane and plowing through teamfights.

Q - Null Sphere

MANA RESTORE4/5/6/7/8% of missing mana  4/4.5/5/5.5/6% of missing mana (quintupled on champions)

Raising Rammus' influence in mid-game teamfights and his late game durability.

Base Stats

HEALTH GROWTH86  95

E - Frenzying Taunt

COOLDOWN12 seconds at all ranks  12/11.5/11/10.5/10 seconds

Ryze

Q base damage decreased.
Ryze's early damage and waveclear are too high for a scaling mage. We're also nerfing his best-performing rune (Conqueror), so some might call this the Riot special, but he deserved this change based on his Phase Rush performance as well.

Q - Overload

BASE DAMAGE80/105/130/155/180  65/90/115/140/165

Senna

Recommended items updated. Passive Mist Wraiths drop less often on minions Senna kills and no longer drop from champions. Q damage and W root duration decreased. R damage ratio increased.
Senna is too powerful as both a support and ADC, but Senna in the latter role is especially strong. We're nerfing her this patch in ways that will affect both roles, but should affect her ADC role more. Specifically, we're targeting her safety, her poke and waveclear, and the amount of souls she gets in a game. All these changes should amount to non-overwhelming Senna, regardless of what role she's in.
ITEMSRecommended items have been updated

Sivir

A small buff for Sivir!

Base Stats

ATTACK DAMAGE61  63

Yuumi

Passive restores mana once again. Q cost increased, damage decreased. Yuumi no longer teleports with her Anchor. E now grants attack speed, no longer stocks charges, and costs much more mana.
We're encouraging Yuumi to be the enchanter she was meant to be by buffing her supportive capabilities at the cost of damage (and that means Summon: Aery is a lot more optimal on her, not Arcane Comet). However, to access all her power, she'll have to sit on squishier champions instead of being an untargetable damage source on top of an already unkillable champion, like Garen. We're also asking her to sometimes expose herself to real danger by allowing attentive opponents to have actual kill threat on an unattached Yuumi.

And seriously, we have the data. Yuumi is a really weird case where taking the wrong rune is negatively and drastically causing people to think she is worse than she actually is. Please take Aery instead of Comet!

Passive - Bop 'n' Block

NEWBACK TO THE OGNow restores 50-160 (levels 1-18) mana
BASE SHIELD50-300 (levels 1-18)  60-400 (levels 1-18)

VFX Updates



Lux

We improved gameplay readability on Lux's abilities while bringing them up to today's standards. Also, more rainbows!
BASIC ATTACKCleaned up the missile and impact
PASSIVE - ILLUMINATIONCleaned up
Q - LIGHT BINDINGAdded a subtle effect to better show the width of the missile, sparkles, and rainbows
W - PRISMATIC BARRIERCleaned up and added a subtle missile width indicator for when it goes out
E - LUCENT SINGULARITYCompletely revamped and cleaned up the charge and explosion effects
R - FINAL SPARKCompletely overhauled with indicator lines on both sides to show the actual width of the beam and a line at the end to show the actual range
IDLE EFFECTSCleaned up and improved the staff effects when Lux is idle
ALL SKINSCleaned up and made to match the base kit changes
STEEL LEGION LUXCleaned up the lightning effects on Q's missile, E's explosion, and R's beam

Runes



Conqueror

Buff duration decreased. Heal for ranged champions decreased.
Conqueror is overperforming on a number of ranged champions, and is slightly too strong in general. We're making it last a shorter period of time, which hits ranged champions more since they're able to take full advantage of the long duration in lane, as well as directly nerfing the healing for ranged champions.
DURATION8 seconds  6 seconds
HEALRanged champions now heal for 15%  8% of damage dealt

Prototype: Omnistone

We've adjusted Omnistone to be a little bit smarter at giving you the right Keystone at the right time. Below are some guidelines you can count on when taking Prototype: Omnistone.
WARDEDNow tells you how much damage it has dealt and how many buffs it has granted. Buffs include: Lethal Tempo's attack speed, Fleet Footwork's Haste, Press the Attack's Vulnerable, Conqueror's Enrage, Hail of Blades' attack speed, Predator's Haste, Phase Rush's Haste, Summon Aery's shield, Aftershock's resistances, or Glacial Augment's slow
PREDATORMore likely to get Predator when not near enemy champions, and less likely to get it when in combat with nearby enemy champions
DARK HARVESTMore likely to get Dark Harvest when near low health enemy champions
HAIL OF BLADESMore likely to get Hail of Blades when near low health enemy champions and building attack speed or attack damage
CONQUERORMore likely to get Conqueror when both you and enemies have high health (increased chance if you're a melee champion)
FLEET FOOTWORKMore likely to get Fleet Footwork if you are low health and below level 9
GLACIAL AUGMENTMore likely to get Glacial Augment if you have a Glacial item off cooldown
SUMMON AERYMore likely to get Summon Aery when you have healing/shielding power and are near a low health ally who is in combat

DRAKE KILL GOLD100g  25g (change does not include Elder Dragon)

Elder Dragon

EXECUTE DAMAGE CALCULATIONElder Dragon's Immolation now properly calculates its 20% health execute threshold with resistances accounted for

Rift Herald

An early Rift Herald's charge damage currently feels underwhelming (usually less than 2 Turret Plates' worth of damage) and not all that worth fighting over. We're increasing Rift Herald's early damage so she's considered more of a high value get in the early game, but without boosting the second Herald's damage.
BASE DAMAGE1500  2000
DAMAGE PER LEVEL175  125

Turrets

PLATE GOLD160g  120g
BONUS RESISTANCES PER MISSING PLATE30  40

The Return of the Poro King


Hold onto your biscuits! We're bringing back the regal and time-honored Poro King from his vacation on the shores of the fabled Ursine Lands and returning him to the Howling Abyss, where he'll help you earn glorious victory! Have fun with the giant furball until January 13, 2020 at 11:59 PM PT.

A quick TL;DR on one of our most dashing game modes: Summon the almighty Poro King with the help of your teammates by flinging poros, snowball-style, until you've hit ten targets. Once you do, the King will help push enemy towers, periodically heal you, and allow you to return to his side at any time. We’ve also got some QoL changes and updates from the last time the Poro King arose from his slumber.
PORO SNAXNew Nightbringer and Dawnbringer Poro Snax are now available and will power up the King in different ways

Duplicate Username Changes


We're starting the transition from League of Legends accounts to Riot Accounts that'll cover League and future Riot games (more on the support page here). All usernames (NOT Summoner Names) have to be unique, regardless of server. This rule applies to new accounts, too. We know that these sorts of changes are never fun, but they are necessary to help update and improve Riot’s account system to support new games.

If your account shares a username with an account in another region (including PBE), you should've already received a heads-up email (there are still some being sent out, so keep an eye out). Starting soon, you'll also see a dismissable pop-up when you log in, letting you know you'll need to pick a new username. Early next year, that pop-up will no longer be dismissable. When that happens, you'll have to change your username before you can play League.

Here are a few tips:
WHAT HAPPENS IF...If your account doesn't have a unique username when we fully move to Riot Accounts in February, you won't be able to log into the client at all and will need to go through the website if you want to log in.
I COPIED MYSELFIf your username is listed multiple times in the list of accounts we emailed you, change the usernames of all your accounts except the one you want to keep your username on. Then try logging into that account. If you don't see the pop-up, congrats—the name's yours! If you still see the pop-up, a player in a different region shares your username and you'll need to pick a new one before the pop-up becomes permanent in January.
WHO COPIED MEIf your username is only listed once on the list of accounts we emailed you, that means a player in a different region shares your username. You'll need to pick a new one before the pop-up becomes permanent in January.

  • Here's Riot Sirhaian with details on a Lux VFX update heading to live with 9.24! Check out the VFX in action below:
  • Skin bios added:
    • Skin Lines added:
      • Nightbringer
      • Dawnbringer
      • Bloodstone
    • Bloodstone Lissandra: "Once a powerful sorceress who sought absolute control over her followers, Lissandra transformed into something altogether different when she finally found the hallowed Bloodstone. The magic she drew from it drove her to slay those who once tended to her every whim. To this day she wanders in search of more mortals to sacrifice to her newfound source of power."
    • Bloodstone Taric: "Considered to be the most handsome and cunning acolyte of his Bloodstone cult, Taric seized power after the former leader took to the hunt. Now fully in control of his Bloodstone artifact, he uses his powers to maintain his youth and beauty at all costs-- even if it means getting his hands a little bloody."
    • Blood Lord Vladimir: "Former leader of a Bloodstone cult, Vladimir took part in a ritual that sacrificed his humanity-- along with the blood of several victims-- to transform the once foppish noble into a terror of the night. To satiate his sanguine cravings, he stalks the urban labyrinth in search of hapless prey."
    • Blood Knight Hecarim: "A zealous sycophant to his order, Hecarim unquestioningly serves the will of the Bloodstone. While less subtle than his masters would like, he is nonetheless effective in his purpose of executing enemies in a grisly fashion."
    • Bloodfury Renekton: "This blood-crazed killing machine scours the battlefield to sate the Bloodstone. The more he slays, the more he fuels his powers. This in turn feeds his frenzy, creating a never ending cycle of spilt viscera and gore."
    • Pirate Ryze: "In another world and time, when the stress of preventing another Rune War was just too much, Ryze left behind his previous life to terrorize the high seas of Runeterra! With his trusty cannon on his back, and magic coursing through his veins like gold through his fingers, Pirate Ryze warps from ship to ship and coast to coast, taking what he will."
    • Bilgewater Katarina: "To outsiders, the politics of Bilgewater seem a mean mess of villainous scum and dishonorable thieves. But woven throughout are complex loyalties, solemn codes of honor, and a very specific (if bloody) way of doing things. Cutting through it all is Katarina, a master of the blade. She silences the right tongues at all the right moments... for the right price."
    • Kingpin Twitch: "Many in Bilgewater get called a filthy rat, but none deserve the title more than the Kingpin himself. While other crime bosses in the port city may loathe to get their hands dirty, Twitch revels in wading into the filth himself-- crossbow in hand, and a finely aged egg in his pocket."
    • Bilgerat Rumble: "When the burdens of invention weigh too heavy on a young yordle's shoulders, there's no better choice than to take to the seas! Nothing like plunderin' and maraudin' to lend Rumble a new lease on life as he terrorizes the coasts."
    • Buccaneer Tristana: "Gunners ahoy! Tristana leaps onto the high seas, sailing for new adventures beyond the Bandle borders. The hat's borrowed (stolen) from a pirate she blasted, and the eyepatch is purely for show. But her take-no-prisoner attitude and trusty cannon gun have sunk more ships than most captains in Bilgewater."

TFT Patch Notes

Check out the Teamfight Tactics patch 9.24 notes:
"Greetings Tacticians! 
The Soulbound, Senna and Lucian, along with Amumu headline patch 9.24. We're also giving a boost to some of the underperforming origins and classes. Our hope is that going deep into the compositions that allow that kind of investment (Inferno, Light, Rangers, and Berserkers) are viable (even if not always optimal) strategies. Last but not least, we're decreasing the effectiveness of early “hyperrolling” by reducing the scaling of several Tier 1 champions who are stronger than intended later in the game. We think there’s more work to do here, but there are clear outliers we’re looking to hit immediately this patch.

Let's get into it!
