League of Legends Patch 7.5 change list

Every single change from the new patch.

Riot Games

The first League of Legends patch of March is 7.5, following up last patch’s major changes to Cho’Gath with even bigger changes to Aatrox, one of League’s long-forgotten champions. There’s also Kindred buffs, Fizz changes (you can walk over missed fishes now!), and nerfs to strong champions like Varus, Miss Fortune, Rengar and Ryze (again).

It’s not just champions getting hit — Bond of Stone has been replaced by a new keystone mastery, Warlord’s Bloodlust is completely different and the Exhaust summoner spell got hit with a big nerf.

Below are just the changes: if you want more context, read the full patch notes here. For just a summary of the five most important things, click here. And before you ask — no, new Galio is coming out til next patch.

Sizing

Last time we did a pass on sizing was in 5.23 - quite a while ago. Some folks joined the Rift since them, so we're checking and keeping them aligned with the rest. All of them are slightly (very slightly) smaller. This shouldn’t affect their in-game hitboxes or have any impact on the game.

VFX Cleanup

We’re cleaning up some of the more distracting visuals in spectator mode and in game. For the most part, we’re simply reducing visual noise, such as the lightning particles on Jayce’s Lightning Field. Toning these effects down makes it easier to track other information at the same time.

Rotating Game Modes

Ascension is now live from 3/10/17 12:00 PT - 3/14/17 04:00 PT and 3/17/17 12:00 PT - 3/21/17 04:00 PT.
