A summery of some of the most major changes coming up in the next patch:
Champions getting affected include Annie, Ashe, Corki, Hecarim, Karma, Kha’Zix, Kog’Maw, Lissandra, Nautilus, Poppy, Sejuani, Sona, Thresh, Varus, and Vi. Annie’s ultimate, Summon: Tibbers is getting buffed. Kha’Zix is getting a nerf on his Void Spikes ability, but buffs on his Taste Their Fear and Void Assault abilities.
Alistar, Lee Sin, Poppy, and Vayne now have a range indicator to show how far targets can be knocked back with each of these champions’ knock-back abilities.
Slow Zones are also being changed a bit, and the slow refresh rate has been reduced to 0.25 seconds.
Item-wise, Boots of Speed, Doran’s Ring, and Dorang’s Shield costs have been lowered, and stats have been adjusted to reflect this. Other items getting some form of change in the upcoming patch include Hunter’s Machete, Spirit Stone, Madrid’s Razors, Wriggle’s Lantern, Spirit of the Ancient Golem, Spirit of the Elder Lizard, Spirit of the Spectral Wraith, Recurve Bow, Malady, Nashor’s Tooth, and Wit’s End. Malady has been completely removed from the game.
The Jungle in Summoner’s Rift is getting a few changes: Wolves, Wraiths, and Golems now spawn at the 1:55 mark, but have a reduced respawn time of 50 seconds from 60 seconds. Ancient Golem and Lizard Elder both now grant more experience points and have a particle effect to show who the buff transfers to.
