Patch 10.1 Notes

Check out the Patch 10.1 notes:
"Welcome back, folks! Hope you had a wonderful holiday and are ready for more balance and League shenanigans in the big 2-0. 
We say hello to the big boss Sett this patch, as well as a huge update to Sylas, League's other resident bad boy. His changes mainly focus on encouraging his role as a midlaner, while making sure players don't lose out on that signature bruisery playstyle he's known for. 
Other than that, we have some QoL changes for Vi, Kog'Maw, Kassadin, and Jax, as well as some cautious buffs to champions that have proven to be menaces in pro play in the past. And finally, we're following up on our big support item changes during 9.23, tailoring them so that their users are encouraged to do more in the early game. 
Happy new year!

Season Start

Ranked 2020 begins on January 10, 4:00 AM! Prepare yourself for another year of competition, salt, joyous victories, and soul-crushing losses.



The Boss
Sett comes to reign supreme in 10.1.
High-res versions of Sett's splash arts are available on League Displays!


Base movement speed and health decreased. Infernum R AoE damage decreased on secondary targets.
Infernum should be Aphelios’ best ultimate option when 3-5 enemies are standing on top of each other, but 'best' doesn't have to mean 1-shotting a whole team. We believe we can trim some damage and still retain its position as the best against stacked enemies, so we're doing just that.

Base Stats

HEALTH530  500

R - Moonlight Vigil

INFERNUM EMPOWERED AOE DAMAGE100% on secondary targets  75% on secondary targets

Aurelion Sol

Passive stars base damage decreased.
Aurelion Sol's wave control and enemy burst potential in the early lane is a bit too high right now. While we're quelling some of that damage in the early game, we still want to let him reach those high peaks later.

Passive - Center of the Universe

BASE STAR DAMAGE16-120 (levels 1-18)  12-120 (levels 1-18)


R base damage and wall duration increased.
With Conqueror nerfed and the fact that he's had low presence in pro play last year, we are being cautiously optimistic and giving Azir some buffs.

R - Emperor's Divide

BASE DAMAGE150/250/450  175/325/475
WALL DURATION3 seconds  5 seconds


R base damage increased later.
Giving Corki some power in a place that won't greatly increase his early game waveclear, but will overall strengthen his niche as an ability-based marksman. Being cautious and optimistic with these buffs, like Azir, based on his low presence in pro play.

R - Missile Barrage

BASE DAMAGE90/115/140  90/125/160


R now works with Guinsoo's Rageblade

R - Grandmaster's Might

GUINSOO'S RAGEBLADENow gains effects from Guinsoo's Rageblade


Cannon Q base damage increased later.
Jayce is not in a good spot all across the board. With Kleptomancy gone, he's definitely seen better days and could use some help elsewhere. Fortunately, the Lethality buffs from the end of last year is helping a bit already, but we're also giving him back some of his more electrifying power and accentuating the burst he's known for.

Q - Shock Blast

BASE DAMAGE55/105/155/205/255/305  55/110/165/220/275/330


Base health and armor growth increased.
Kalista is still pretty weak after the buffs in 9.22, so this time we're buffing her survivability in the mid-late game in order to help her get damage out in skirmishes and teamfights. Being cautious and optimistic with these buffs, like Azir, based on her low presence in pro play.

Base Stats



Movement speed decreased. R mana penalty duration now displays on icon.
Kassadin is doing a little too well in mid-tier levels of play. We're nerfing his roaming and escape potential to target the players that go unpunished in lane and have the ability to be all over the place.

Base Stats


R - Riftwalk

DEBUFF DISPLAYKassadin's mana debuff duration now displays on R's border


R mana penalty duration now displays on icon.

R - Living Artillery

DEBUFF DISPLAYKog'Maw's mana debuff duration now displays on R's border


Passive duration decreased; movement speed now flat.
For a juggernaut, Mordekaiser is too hard to get away from and kite. That coupled with his synergy with Rylai's makes it difficult to escape from him.

Passive - Darkness Rise

DURATION5 seconds  4 seconds
MOVEMENT SPEED3/6/9% (levels 1/6/11)  3% (levels 1-18)


E now also empowers the target's abilities.
Most enchanters are almost entirely designed to support their marksman and Nami's no exception. But we see the opportunity to broaden her utility a bit so that she can benefit both basic attacking marksmen and ability-based champions.

E - Tidecaller's Blessing

BLESSINGEmpowers the target's next 3 basic attacks  Empowers the target's next 3 basic attacks and abilities (AoE spells empowered by Tidecaller's Blessing deal 33-66% less damage to non-champions)


Base health growth increased. Frost Armor resistances ratio increased. E base damage increased later.
We're happy with Sejuani's identity as a scaling tank, so we're doubling down on it and buffing her scaling capabilities, while leaving her early game vulnerabilities intact.

Base Stats


Passive - Fury of the North

FROST ARMOR10 (+0.35 bonus armor) bonus armor and 10 (+0.35 bonus magic resistance) bonus magic resistance  10 (+0.5 bonus armor) bonus armor and 10 (+0.5 bonus magic resistance) bonus magic resistance

E - Permafrost

BASE DAMAGE40/80/120/160/200  40/90/140/190/240


Gains resistances when slaying Elder Dragon. Fury gains increased in lieu of ultimate CDR when slaying Cloud Drakes. E marked target damage ratio and monster damage cap increased.
For a dragon-killing dragon girl, Shyvana's been losing out on some of the new Rise of the Elements dragon interactions. We're fixing that and also giving her some small buffs to her sustained damage.

Passive - Fury of the Dragonborn

DRAGON SLAYERShyvana now gains 5 permanent bonus armor and bonus magic resistance for every elemental drake and Elder Dragon her team slays
RAGING WINDSCloud Drake now increases Shyvana's Fury gains by 10/20/30/40% (because her ultimate does not have a cooldown)

E - Flame Breath

MARKED TARGET DAMAGE RATIO3.25% of target's maximum health  3.75% of target's maximum health


Less base stats early, more later. Passive now gives attack speed. W cooldown decreased. E AP ratio increased. W, E1, and R basic attack reset removed.
Sylas has been difficult to stabilize for all brackets of players and has an extremely long record of changes since his release. Due to that, we promised that we'd do some bigger work on him outside of number tweaks that would help bring the gap between all levels of Sylas players closer.

First, we're changing his early lane to be more in line with someone like Ekko and Fizz, champions that have less control in the early laning phase, but get stronger with levels. Secondly, we're balancing him as a midlaner and prioritizing changes that encourage him to be used there instead of other lanes. And finally, by removing his E>Q combo and slowing down his basic attack pattern, we're making a good faith effort to retain his auto-weaving bruiser playstyle while also making measures against the speed in which he bursts down his enemies.

We'll be looking closely at him in the coming months to see how these changes have landed!

LOCKOUT0.2 seconds when moving if Abduct hits  0.05 seconds when moving after Abduct

R - Hijack

REMOVEDBASIC ATTACK RESETCasting Hijack no longer resets Sylas' basic attack


Q cooldown and Blight cooldown refund decreased.
Varus' role as a poke marksman has been quite weak since his last set of major changes in 2018. For an ability-based marksman, that playstyle should be one of, if not, his strongest, so we're specifically focusing on strengthening it.

Q - Piercing Arrow

COOLDOWN20/18/16/14/12 seconds  18/16/14/12/10 seconds
BLIGHT COOLDOWN REFUND4 seconds  3 seconds


R now Unstoppable for its whole duration.
Giving Vi a QoL change to her ultimate, making it work more consistently against knock-ups and knockbacks and letting her stick to her target throughout the ability's duration.

R - Assault and Battery

NEWDENZEL WASHINGTONVi remains Unstoppable for the duration of her uppercut


Empowered E slow decreased.
Zyra never had a reason to spawn multiple Vine Lashers since having one was the same as having two. But now that we made the Lashers' slow stackable, Zyra can plan her actions around the plants and actually think about which one she wants.

E - Grasping Roots

VINE LASHER SLOW30%, not stacking  25%, stacking up to two times, but only once per plant

Support Items

We're following up on our big support item changes during 9.23, tailoring them so that their users are encouraged to do more in the early game in exchange for some combat stats. Tanky champions will be slightly more resilient and ability-casting champions will have more mana for abilities.

Prototype: Omnistone

Cooldown decreased.
Omnistone continues to significantly underperform, so we're giving it a buff so it has enough power to compete with the other choices.
COOLDOWN7-3 seconds for melee champions, 11-7 seconds for ranged champions  5-3 seconds for melee champions, 9-7 for ranged champions


  • Warwick's Q - Jaws of the Beast no longer depletes mana or goes on cooldown if the target dies during its cast.
  • Ardent Censer's bonus attack speed Unique passive no longer activates on a champion that's shielding themselves
  • Missile-type abilities in that wouldn't normally be in your vision will no longer give you an early warning in Fog of War

Upcoming Skins & Chromas

New Champion: Sett, the Boss

A new champion, Sett, the Boss, will be available sometime this cycle:

Release Skin

Sett's release skin is Mecha Kingdoms Sett!

Mecha Kingdoms Sett

1350 RP
"A nameless barbarian who survived on the outskirts, Sett knew his greatest talent came from his fists. After building his wealth and reputation in brutal fighting pits, he created a new persona, donning the title of The Savage Wolf. Upon hearing of the leviathan invasion, he used his fame and fortune to acquire an Avalon of his own in order to, once and for all, prove his might in front of a captivated audience."

Champion Skins

New skins will be available sometime this cycle:

Freljord Sylas

1350 RP
"Free from the kingdom that once imprisoned him, Sylas of Dregbourne marches from Demacia to the Freljord. With every step he takes, he remembers what others have branded him: Mage, Traitor, Kingslayer-- names he revels in as he endures the bitter cold, his heart warmed by the fires of rebellion. It will be here, in the icy north, that he will seize the ancient power needed to fuel his revolution..."

Mecha Kingdoms Draven

1350 RP
"Once a promising general of Vercentia, Draven no longer wished to fight for someone else's glory. Now living his best life as an independent mercenary, he has made a name for himself and his showmanship in battle. To this day, how he managed to acquire the resources necessary to craft an Avalon remains a mystery..."

Mecha Kingdoms Garen

1350 RP
"Once a ruthless warlord, Garen led his armies to victory after victory, laying the foundations for the Vercentia Kingdom. When the leviathans appeared out of nowhere, he opted to put aside his dream of uniting all the Great Kingdoms under his rule, and instead to march his newly-fashioned Avalon alongside his former enemies for the sake of humanity."

Mecha Kingdoms Garen Prestige Edition

"Having been elected the leader of the United Great Kingdoms, Garen will stop at nothing until the safety of his people is ensured. Armed with an Avalon upgraded to the teeth, he stands at the forefront of the mightiest warriors from across the land, determined to lead them into battle until the leviathans are no more."

Mecha Kingdoms Jax

1820 RP
"Famed as the greatest weapons master in all the land, Jax has been itching for a proper weapon, and a proper fight. When the best minds of the Estercrest Kingdom came together-- using strange technology seemingly gifted to them by the heavens-- to construct an indomitable Avalon, Jax was finally impressed. He welcomes the leviathan invasion, hoping these monstrous foes will prove to be the challenge he has been searching for his entire life."

Mecha Kingdoms Leona

1350 RP
"Leona grew up as the favored daughter of the Dawnrise Kingdom. When the leviathans appeared on her homeland's shores, she took command of her realm's forces, becoming the matriarch of her people. In return, the grateful scholars of her court gifted her an Avalon, an immense pilotable mech powered by the life essence of the very monsters that threatened her home. Now, she stands fearless, leading vast navies into war."

Teamfight Tactics Patch 10.1 Notes

Check out the full TFT Patch 10.1 notes:
"Greetings Tacticians! 
Good to see y'all again for a new year of Teamfight Tactics. Our first patch of the new decade is a big one and features one new trait, two new champions, three new items (replacing a few old ones), and the typical line-up of balance changes and adjustments. Here are the highlights: Defensive team compositions should see a boost from the new Lunar trait and the introduction of Leona and Karma to the line-up. A number of items now scale with their wearer's star level. Light has been buffed both as a trait and from a number of individual champions. 
Last but not least, a new year of TFT wouldn't be complete without a few new Little Legends. Keep an eye out for our new friends who should become available later this week. 
Take this portal if you're looking for League's patch notes
Let's get into it!"

New Little Legends


Wants to take over the world -- and eat all the yummiest things in it. But, he’s very small. He often has to hide under things in order to not get squashed. While he hides, he machinates on his complex plans.


An adorable statue carved from the finest Demacian petricite (anti-magic stone). He has a soft spot for the vulnerable creatures of the world, and tries to protect them with every ounce of his strength as if he was a giant colossus -- even if he is still growing.


Tocker is constantly tinkering with things to make them better, even on his own body! (His left wing is always a bit squeaky). He loves meeting new people and learning about the world through his enormous blue eyes.
