Patch 11.2 & TFT Notes

Posted on at 11:41 AM by Aznbeat
Patch 11.1 is scheduled for Thursday, January 21st and the official patch notes and TFT patch notes have been posted!
Continue reading for a full look the patch notes & previews, including Viego, the Ruined King, as well as new Ruined and Shan Hai Scrolls skins!
Check out the Patch 11.2 Notes:
"Hi! A certain king has arrived, and so has another patch! 

Here in 11.2, we’ve made a couple changes based around healing. First, we brought the spice and everything nice for Soraka; with the last buff to Grievous Wounds, she should now be in a better spot to wish your pain away. On the other hand, folks like Aatrox and Olaf have been healing a bit too well, becoming true terrors when matched with the right items and runes. To change this, we’ve shifted their healing to be tapped straight from their kits— true healing is on the inside, right?  

As for items, we spruced up tank Mythics outside of Sunfire, the crowd favorite— although it's a name we all know and love, we're hoping to open the gateway to more item diversity, depending on the game state. 

And that’s it! We’ll see you in the next one. 

In the TFT world, the Festival of the Beasts mid-set has arrived! Take this portal to TFT patch notes to join in on the festivities.

Patch Highlights
Ruined Shyvana, Ruined Karma, Ruined Draven, Shan Hai Scrolls Jhin, Shan Hai Scrolls Cho'Gath, Shan Hai Scrolls Neeko, Shan Hai Scrolls Nautilus, and Lunar Beast Viego will be available on January 21, 2021. 
Champions 
[New] Viego
The Ruined King 
Bring your darkest desires to life with Viego in patch 11.2!
Akali
Q cost increased later. 
Without her trusty Gunblade, Akali has recovered well, wielding several of the AP Mythics to her advantage instead (Night Harvester, Rocketbelt, Riftmaker). This has put her in a stronger spot than we’d anticipated, so we’re toning her down by reverting her buff from 10.23. 

Q - Five Point Strike
  • COST :: 120/110/100/90/80 energy >>> 120/115/110/105/100 energy 
Azir
Q cooldown decreased. 
Azir lost the cooldowns on Nashor’s Tooth and thus, some of the wind beneath his wings. We’re giving him a lift by returning some of it directly into his kit.

Q - Conquering Sands
  • COOLDOWN :: 15/13/11/9/7 seconds >>> 14/12/10/8/6 seconds 
Caitlyn
AD growth increased.  
Caitlyn’s a bit behind the curve amidst her peers, so we’re taking another shot to keep her hot on the trail. 
Base Stats
  • ATTACK DAMAGE GROWTH :: 2.88 >>> 3.3  
Darius
Passive Noxian Might bonus AD decreased.  
Darius has found a new friend in Stridebreaker, which allows him to execute his combo while quickly stacking his passive. We’re trimming some bonus stats from his passive to match its new consistency.

Passive - Hemorrhage 
  • NOXIAN MIGHT BONUS ATTACK DAMAGE :: 30-230 >>> 20-205 
Dr. Mundo
Q health refund on hit and on kill increased. E bonus damage increased. R health regen increased. 
Dr. Mundo has been struggling in top lane and the jungle. Giving him a bit more survivability and trading potential, and increasing his signature healing to make Mundo more *slurp* Mundo. 

Q - Infected Cleaver
  • HEALTH REFUND ON HIT :: 40% >>> 50% 
  • HEALTH REFUND ON KILL :: 80% >>> 100% 
E - Masochism 
  • BONUS DAMAGE  :: 3/3.5/4/4.5/5 of his maximum health >>  4/4.5/5/5.5/6% of his maximum health
R - Sadism 
  • HEALTH REGEN :: 50/75/100% maximum health >>> 60/85/110% maximum health 
Elise
Spider Q damage decreased later. 
With new items at her disposal and the buff on her Q in patch 10.23, Elise has been scaling too well. Time to wash the spider out.   

Q - Venomous Bite
  • DAMAGE :: 70/110/150/190/230 >>> 70/105/140/175/210

Ivern
Q shield ratio decreased. 
The nerf to Triggerseed’s AP ratio in patch 11.1 was only reflected in Ivern’s tooltips. We fixed it so it actually affects his shield now (oops).  
E - Triggerseed
  • SHIELD RATIO :: 90% AP >>> 80% AP
LeBlanc
Base health growth increased. Q cost decreased later.  
LeBlanc may be all smoke and mirrors, but right now, she’s not fooling anyone. We’re helping this Deceiver by making it less punishing when she uses her abilities and when she engages in mid- to late- game. 
Base Stats
  • HEALTH GROWTH :: 92 >>> 97
Q - Sigil of Malice
  • COST :: 50/60/70/80/90 mana >>> 50/55/60/65/70 mana 
Maokai
E cost increased later; damage ratio decreased. 
Maokai support hit a growth spurt in the new season, and his enemies are feeling a bit… sapped. Making it so bushes around Maokai aren’t as scary.  
E - Sapling Toss
  • COST ::  60/65/70/75/80 mana >>> 60/70/80/90/100 mana
  • DAMAGE RATIO :: 1% per 100 AP >>> 0.8% per 100 AP 
Nocturne
Q and R cooldowns decreased. 
Nocturne is falling behind his jungle pals, so it's time to give his shadows, Paranoia, and all around darkness some more stage time.

Q - Duskbringer
  • COOLDOWN :: 10 seconds >>> 8 seconds
R - Paranoia
  • COOLDOWN :: 150/125/100 seconds >>> 140/115/90 seconds 
Nunu & Willump
Base movement speed and health decreased.  
Nunu & Willump currently get to have their tank and eat their enemies too. We’re trimming some of their baseline stats so item and rune decisions carry more weight and give them appropriate downsides as well.

Base Stats
  • MOVEMENT SPEED :: 345 >>> 340
  • HEALTH :: 570 >>> 540 
Aatrox
E’s self-healing now increases during R. R self-healing decreased. 
Champions like Aatrox and Olaf are able to reach a scary state with massive burst healing from items (Goredrinker and Ravenous Hydra) and runes (Conqueror and Ravenous Hunter). The moments where they feel untouchable aren’t healthy, so we’re shifting their healing to be sourced more from their kit rather than from systems. 

E - Umbral Dash
  • [NEW] IT DOESN’T END HERE :: Umbral Dash’s self-healing now increases to 26/32/38/44/50% during R - World Ender
R - World Ender
  • SELF-HEALING :: 50/75/100% >>> 30/45/60%  
Olaf
W life steal increased; healing amplification decreased.  
Buff axe-throwing buddy gets a similar adjustment to Aatrox. These changes should also tone down Olaf’s overall power, since he’s been chop-chopping down the competition. 

W - Vicious Strikes
  • LIFE STEAL :: 14/16/18/20/22% >>> 16/18/20/22/24%
  • HEALING AMPLIFICATION :: 0-50% (based on missing health) >>> 0-33% (based on missing health) 
Senna
Base AS ratio increased. Passive non-kill Mist Wraith drop chance and gold from Mist Wraith increased. Q healing and damage ratio increased.  
Aiming to support support Senna with more gold so that she can buy more items. We’re also giving her Q and attack speed stronger scaling across builds, which should open up more itemization options.

Base Stats 
  • ATTACK SPEED RATIO :: 0.2 >>> 0.3
Passive - Absolution
  • NON-KILL MIST WRAITH DROP CHANCE :: 22% >>> 28%
  • GOLD FROM MIST WRAITH :: 3 >>> 8
Q - Piercing Darkness 
  • HEALING RATIO :: 25% AP >>> 40% AP
  • DAMAGE RATIO :: 40% AD >>> 50% AD
  • KRAK ON, THEN :: Senna’s Q on enemy champions now adds a stack on Kraken Slayer (max one stack).  

Shaco
Passive damage increased. 
Leaning just a little bit closer! into Shaco's exciting and unique points of play for stronger jungle clearing and assassination buffs.

Passive - Backstab
  • DAMAGE :: 10-25 (level 1-18) >>> 20-35 (level 1-18) 
Soraka
Q total Rejuvenation heal increased later. W heal and heal ratio increased.  
We know you’ve been licking your (grievous) wounds since its buff last patch, so we’re increased Soraka’s heal power all around.

Q - Starcall
  • TOTAL REJUVENATION HEAL ::  50/60/70/80/90 >>> 50/65/80/95/110

W - Astral Infusion
  • HEAL ::  80/115/150/185/220 >>> 90/125/160/195/230
  • HEAL RATIO :: 60% AP >>> 70% AP 
Trundle
Q bonus damage ratio increased. W bonus attack speed increased. 
Helping the Troll King get back on his feet in the jungle and top lane, with some added power to his clear and trading.

Q - Chomp
  • BONUS DAMAGE RATIO :: 10/20/30/40/50% AD >>> 15/25/35/45/55% AD

W - Frozen Domain
  • BONUS ATTACK SPEED :: 20/40/60/80/100% >>> 30/50/70/90/110% 
Varus
Base mana growth increased. R cooldown decreased early.  
Varus is a straight shooter but he’s been behind the curve, especially with builds that aren’t attack speed heavy. Giving him a nudge up. 
  • MANA GROWTH :: 33 >>> 40
R - Chain of Corruption
  • COOLDOWN :: 120/90/60 seconds >>> 100/80/60 seconds 
Zoe
W minion spell shard drops updated. 
With a new item landscape, it's time for us to add some pizazz to the pool of minion drops from Zoe’s Spell Thief. In doing this, we also removed Redemption because it offered frustrating power across the map when dropped.

W - Spell Thief
  • MINION SPELL SHARD DROPS NOW INCLUDE :: Randuin’s Omen, Locket of the Iron Solari, Turbo Chemtank, Shurelya's Battlesong, Youmuu's Ghostblade, Goredrinker, Stridebreaker, Prowler's Claw
  • MINION SPELL SHARD DROPS NO LONGER INCLUDE :: Redemption
  • ITEM SHARD BUGFIXES :: Casting Zoe's <strong>W - Spell Thief</strong> with a shard of an item in her inventory no longer causes that actual item to go on cooldown. Additionally, using an item with a damaging passive right after using its shard no longer causes the second instance to deal 0 damage. 
Items 
Essence Reaver 
Essence Reaver has been a little weak, so we’re giving it a bump up for mana-hungry champions. 
  • SPELLBLADE MANA RESTORE :: 3% of maximum mana >>> 40% of mana from damage dealt from Spellblade (before damage reduction)  
Galeforce 
Galeforce is outperforming the other marksmen Mythics, both in the “crit chance”  space and  for champions who can flex into Lethality. As such, we’re pulling back some of the power we gave Galeforce in earlier patches.
  • CLOUDBURST COOLDOWN :: 60 seconds >>> 90 seconds (applies to Ornn's Typhoon as well)
Hextech Rocketbelt 
While Rocketbelt's gap closing ability is its intended unique factor, it shouldn’t be the only source for engages every game.
  • SUPERSONIC BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED :: 50% for 2 seconds >>> 30% for 1.5 seconds 
Imperial Mandate 
Despite a recent trip to the patch notes in 10.25, Imperial is still a strong item for solo lanes and champions with multiple CC abilities. Our priority here is to move it out of the hands of solo laners and to simplify its confusing trigger condition.

COORDINATED FIRE COOLDOWN :: Applies when ||| ally consumes the mark >>> initial application of slow/immobilize 
Kraken Slayer 
Kraken Slayer is extremely powerful on champion abilities that churn out on-hits. Those abilities tend to have on-hit modifiers for this exact purpose, so Kraken Slayer will now leverage those modifiers of the following champion abilities:

Aphelios 
  • Severum Q - Onslaught 

Katarina
  • R - Death Lotus

Urgot 
  • W - Purge 
Shurelya's Battlesong 
With the cost reduction to Chemtank, the niches for Shurelya’s and Chemtank are getting too close for comfort, so we’re differentiating the two while making it more suitable for enchanters and AP users.

  • HEALTH :: 350 >>> 200
  • [REM] BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED :: Shurelya’s no longer grants 5% movement speed
  • [NEW] ABILITY POWER :: Shurelya’s now grants 40 AP 
  • BASE MANA REGEN :: 50% >>> 100%
  • BUILD PATH :: Kindlegem + Faerie Charm + Winged Moonplate + 650 gold >>> Kindlegem + Bandleglass Mirror + 750g 
Gargoyle Stoneplate  
Given the premium price you pay for a Stoneplate, it’s not quite powerful enough,  as it's very comparable to its cheaper Legendary competitors. We’re buffing up its durability stats to help you soak up all of the aggro.
  • FORTIFY BONUS ARMOR AND MR :: 3% (max 15%) >>> 5% (max 25%) 
Lethality Items 
We’re lowering the cost of some of the utility Lethality items to create a new division of 2600 gold AD items, both for AD supports and traditional assassins.

Umbral Glaive
  • TOTAL COST :: 2800 gold >>> 2600 gold
  • ATTACK DAMAGE :: 55 >>> 50
  • BUILD PATH :: Serrated Dirk + Caulfield's Warhammer + 600 gold >>> Serrated Dirk + Long Sword + Long Sword + 800 gold

Serpent’s Fang
  • TOTAL COST :: 2800 gold >>> 2600 gold
  • ATTACK DAMAGE :: 60 >>> 55

Chempunk Chainsword 
  • TOTAL COST :: 2700 gold >>> 2600 gold
  • HEALTH :: 200 >>> 150 
Marksman Legendary Items  
We’re adjusting some of the stats on marksman Legendary items so that they give more attack speed than their components.

Phantom Dancer
  • BUILD PATH :: Zeal + Dagger + Dagger + 850 gold >>> Zeal + Dagger + Dagger + 950 gold
  • ATTACK SPEED :: 40% >>> 45% 
Runaan’s Hurricane
  • BUILD PATH :: Zeal + Dagger + Dagger + 850 gold >>> Zeal + Dagger + Dagger + 950 gold
  • ATTACK SPEED :: 40% >>> 45%  
Tank Mythics 
Sunfire Aegis has been wildly popular in contrast to other tank Mythic options, even though they seem similarly powerful in terms of win rate. The hope is that by making a separate, lower price tier for the other tank Mythic items (with each also getting a kiss and a buff), they will have more occasions where they’ll be purchased by support tanks and junglers. 

Sunfire Aegis
  • MYTHIC PASSIVE :: 5 ability haste per Legendary item >>> 5% tenacity and slow resist per Legendary item
Frostfire Gauntlet
  • TOTAL COST :: 3200 gold >>> 2800 gold
  • BUILD PATH :: Bami's Cinder + Null-Magic Mantle + Chain Vest + 850 gold >>> Bami's Cinder + Cloth Armor + Null-Magic Mantle + 950 gold
  • ABILITY HASTE :: 15 >>> 20
  • ARMOR :: 50 >>> 25
Rimeforged Grasp (Ornn Upgrade)
  • ARMOR :: 65 >>> 40
  • MAGIC RESIST :: 35 >> 40
  • ABILITY HASTE :: 20 >>> 25
Turbo Chemtank
  • TOTAL COST :: 3200 gold >>> 2800 gold
  • BUILD PATH :: Bami's Cinder + Cloth Armor + Negatron Cloak + 900 old >>> Bami's Cinder + Cloth Armor + Null-Magic Mantle + 950 gold
  • MAGIC RESIST :: 50 >>> 25
  • ABILITY HASTE :: 15 >>> 20
  • MYTHIC PASSIVE :: 5% tenacity and slow resist per Legendary item >>> 5 ability haste per Legendary item
Turbocharged Hexperiment (Ornn Upgrade)
  • MAGIC RESIST :: 65 >>> 40
  • ARMOR :: 35 >>> 40
  • ABILITY HASTE :: 20 >>> 25

Upcoming Skins & Chromas 
The following skins will be released in this patch.  
The following chromas will be released this patch: 

New Champion: Viego

Our newest champion, Viego, the Ruined King, will be available this patch!

Viego, the Ruined King


Release Skin

Viego's release skin is Lunar Beast Viego:

Lunar Beast Viego

"Former leader of a past Lunar Ox Squad, Viego decided that they would fight the Lunar Beast and actually defeat it. His plan ended in tragedy as he watched the rest of his squad be devoured-- including his wife. Viego has stewed in bitterness over these losses for years, blaming everyone but himself -- including this year's Lunar Ox Squad."

Champion Skins

Seven skins  will be available sometime this patch:

Ruined Draven

1350 RP
"A showman no matter the circumstance, Draven challenged Viego to a duel that the Glorious Executioner immediately lost, resulting in his ruination. Unlike his ruined brethren, little has changed about Draven save for a white shock hair on his head and a slightly more vicious personality than usual."

Ruined Karma

1350 RP
"Surviving the initial ruination of Ionia, Karma is ultimately lost during a second one led by Viego himself. With the Spirit of Ionia itself removed from the continent, the Ionian people must band together to save one another, even as Karma twists the souls of millions to a new, horrific purpose."

Ruined Shyvana

1350 RP
"Shyvana's ruination brings a newfound darkness, as well as clarity. Turning swiftly against Demacia for its persecution of magic, and sinking into her more draconic emotions, she appears as an avenging beast of old, ready to topple Demacia for its ignorance."

Shan Hai Scrolls Cho'Gath

1350 RP
"A mythical, titanic beast painted within the mysterious Shan Hai Scrolls, whose gluttony resulted in eternal karmic punishment, Cho'gath has seized upon the Scrolls' connection to the multiverse and plans to devour both his own world and then all others."

Shan Hai Scrolls Jhin

1350 RP
"A mad god who resides within a mysterious painting older than creation, Jhin has grown bored of the canvas in which he dwells and wishes to bring his art to new, fresh eyes. He has begun weaving the edges of the painting into the fabric of the multiverse, hoping to escape his confinement."

Shan Hai Scrolls Nautilus

1350 RP
"A guardian who helped seal the mad god Jhin within a holy waterfall, as depicted within the mysterious painting known as the Shan Hai Scrolls. Over the millenia, Jhin has whispered of power, freedom, and true godhood to Nautilus, until he finally released him. Now twisted with anger, Nautilus's rivers run not with water, but molten magma."

Shan Hai Scrolls Neeko

1350 RP
"A kindly god of the Shan Hai Scrolls who remembers her counterpart, Jhin, from before he succumbed to madness, Neeko believes she can return Jhin to the side of good before the painting's magic fades and doom befalls the multiverse, but she knows such an expenditure of power may destroy her in the process."

  • If you are very good at this game and currently placed in Master or above, you will be reset to Diamond 4.
  • You will get 5 provisional matches after the reset, meaning you will not lose any LP for sub-top 4 placements in your first 5 ranked games of the new stage.You’ll also gain extra LP for finishing top four, so best of luck!
Ranked Rewards Coming to a Patch Near You (Soon) 
Don’t get too EMOTEional, ranked rewards for gold and above will be coming next patch, 11.3! 
SYSTEMS 
Lanterns
You get a prize, and you get a prize, and you get a prize! Everybody gets a prize! Just not every time.  
  • Lanterns are the new mid-set mechanic that can drop at various game times, or not at all. They can contain things like Item Components, Loaded Dice, Gold, and more. 
Chosen Shop Odds
Consistency Buff.
  • Level 6: 15/45/40/0/0 ⇒ 0/60/40/0/0

  • Level 9: 0/0/15/45/40 ⇒ 0/0/0/60/40
Reduced the chances of rolling a Chosen slightly, as in you probably wouldn’t have noticed if you didn’t read what you’re reading right now. This outta make it just a tad more difficult to force comps. 
Carousel Changes
The best defense is a good offense.  
  • Removed the All Defensive Component First Carousel. Replaced it with a 2x Sword, 2x Bow, 2x Rod, 2x Tear, 1x Glove version. 
NEW TRAITS

Dragonsoul 
The first Dragonsoul allies to take damage in combat receive the Dragon's Blessing. While blessed, the unit gains bonus stats, and every 5th attack fires a Dragonsoul blast, dealing 50% of the target's maximum Health in magic damage.
  • On death, this blessing passes to the closest Dragonsoul ally without a blessing.
  • (3) Dragonsoul: 1 Blessing of 40% Spell Power and Attack Speed
  • (6) Dragonsoul: 3 Blessing of 80% Spell Power and Attack Speed

  • Veigar Attack Speed: 0.6 ⇒ 0.65
Tier 4
Morgana’s getting trait and ability swaps that improve upon her identity as a dazzling drain tank. She’ll still be dazzling, but she’ll be doing even more drain tanking with the new Syphoner trait at the cost of her Magic Resist shred. Morg’s tool tip may be a bit dazzled with her new changes. Expect a fix to that later, but for now know that her spell DOES NOT SHRED MAGIC RESIST.
  • Aatrox Infernal Chains Damage: 250/450/1250 ⇒ 350/550/1500
  • Morgana Traits: Enlightened Dazzler ⇒ Enlightened Syphoner

  • Morgana Tormented Shadow no longer shreds Magic Resist
  • Sejuani Mana: 70/150 ⇒ 80/160
Tier 5
Azir’s Crowd Control and Sand Soldiers have made him a must pick for just about any situation. By sanding down some of his CC, maybe some other players will shuffle him back into the pool so I can get to 9 Warlords more consistently. Speaking of consistency, Yone’s been far too strong as a mid game power grab, so we’re giving him a mini-rework. Yone’s now going to have to defeat his marked opponents faster if he’s to truly conquer his demons.
  • Azir Emperor’s Divide Knock Up Duration: 2 ⇒ 1.5 sec

  • Yone Unforgotten no longer deals missing health damage. Instead, Unforgotten will deal additional percent damage based on the target’s missing health for up to 100% additional damage
ITEMS

Turns out making a bunch of aura items to empower one super carry that then grabs a Hurricane and goes to town is a bit strong. Giantslayer is giving players Jack and the Beanstalk flashbacks, and that’s just not okay, because giants are people too. The new set has more healing mechanics (syphoner, slayer), so trimming some power from Hand of Justice and Hextech Gunblade will help prevent cases of extreme over-healing.
  • Chalice of Power Spell Power: 35 ⇒ 30
  • Giantslayer Max Damage: 90% ⇒ 80%
  • Hand of Justice Damage & Healing: 45% ⇒ 40%
  • Hextech Gunblade Max Shield: 400 ⇒ 300
  • Hurricane Bonus Damage: 90% ⇒ 80%
  • Statikk Shiv Bounces: 3/4/5 ⇒4/5/6
  • Zeke’s Herald Bonus Attack Speed: 35% ⇒ 30%
  • Zz’Rot Portal Construct now gains bonus 0/0/10/20/40/80/120/200 Armor and MR based on the Stage"
