Preseason 2021: Mythic & Legendary Items Preview

Check out this dev blog from the Summoner's Rift team on new Mythic and Legendary items - "Preseason's items update is arriving on PBE soon! We're previewing some of the biggest changes."

"Over the past few months, we've discussed our gameplay plans for Preseason 2021—a complete overhaul to the item system. 
We're about to debut on PBE for an extended six-week testing period, and want to share a preview of the 22 new Mythic items you can look forward to this November, plus a few dozen new and updated Legendary items. This isn't a complete picture of all the item update has to offer, but we wanted to focus our first look on the splashiest item tiers. 
Housekeeping note: Things will be in a pretty early state when you first see them, but expect changes to things like icons, item and effect names, visual and sound effects, stat values, and more as we polish everything up over our month and a half of PBE time! Barring massive table-flips like item additions, removals, or reworks, though, this preview page won't be updated after publishing. The item system will be immensely changed in preseason, and documenting our fine-tuning to that overhaul before it's live won't actually help players understand what to do on day 1. When the patch notes come out, they'll have all the details as usual. 
Let's dive into things!

Maintained Legendary Items 
"These items will have balance changes—and often changes to the stats they offer—but their effects work the same so you'll play around them pretty much the same way you do now. We're just including this section for people who CTRL+F for specific Legendaries." 
Ardent Censer, Banshee's Veil, Bloodthirster, Dead Man's Plate, Edge of Night, Guardian Angel, Lich Bane, Maw of Malmortius, Mejai's Soulstealer, Mercurial Scimitar, Nashor's Tooth, Rabadon's Deathcap, Rapid Firecannon, Redemption, Runaan's Hurricane, Rylai's Crystal Scepter, Sanguine Blade, Stormrazor, Umbral Glaive, Void Staff, Warmog's Armor, Youmuu's Ghostblade, Zhonya's Hourglass

Jungle Items 
"We're taking cues from last year's update to support items which reduced support gold investment in their item to a one-time starter purchase. Junglers will pick one of two starter items which, after Smiting a few times, will disappear from their inventory to permanently grant its effects as a passive and upgrade Smite to Chilling or Challenging." 
Doran's Forgeheart
350 gold
+10% Omnivamp vs. monsters 
Tooth & Nail: Damaging monsters burns them for (2% Bonus Health) (+10% Ability Power) (+5% Bonus Attack Damage) magic damage over 5 seconds. Monsters who would die to the burn die immediately.

Riot Scruffy added:
[1] "A few more subtle changes that aren’t highlighted on the article about mythics and legendaries: (In thread) "
[2] "Tear is now a starter item. This let’s you start stacking while you build a mythic and complete seraphs or Muramana second. There is a trade off though it’s weaker for lane with a scaling payoff. "
[3] "Oblivion orb now offers mages grevious for cheaper than the full morello."
[4] "Sheen no longer has mana on it or a mana crystal component. This opens up a lot more users of the item and the items it builds into. (We’re doing a small mana buff for champs that needed it before)"
[5] "Dorans ring restores health if you have no mana on kill. Opening it up to a few more AP champs."
[6] There are a few rune adjustments. We’re not doing any big changes but the transition from CDR to haste means we need to change a few.

Here's a couple of non-item changelists from Riot Scruffy that should be hitting the PBE with preseason changes in the 10.21 PBE Cycle!
[1] "As we approach PBE for the item system overhaul we wanted to prime some more high level changes and their goals.  
Critical Strike: 
-Bring a bit more power into the early curve and slightly less exponential payoff 
-Broaden the choices for champs building crit"
[2] Definitely don't worry that this will be a crit champion nerf, we have shifted the power from crit damage into other stats. Our goal on overall power is no change.
[3] Also worth noting - we will do preemtive changes on champs with crit interactions (yasuo, yone, tryndamere) to make sure they are similar power to live and have dynamic choices in the system without having to go over 100%.
[4] Another non items related Preseason Preview before PBE. We're testing a very simplified version of a midlane agency reduction.  
Small resource reduction and stronger push threat to punish roaming excessively.


[5] "One last Preseason Preview before PBE: 

Jungle - doing very light changes: 

-Increase pathing diversity by making camp resistance more uniform 
-Expose some hidden mechanics visually to help newer players learn the jungle 
-Slight reduction to the power of kiting camps"
Riot August added:
These are the champion specific changes going to the PBE today (9/29) for preseason.  
The goal of most of these changes is to ensure the champions work correctly with the new item system while maintaining compelling build choices.

Look for full coverage when this hits the PBE soon!
