League of Legends patch 7.14 change list

Yes! The one with Kayn!

Patch 7.14 brings about a lot of changes to champions and items. It also brings our beloved new edgelord son, Kayn, home to us!

We see big changes for a variety of lanes this time around, with Diana and Singed getting a good chunk of changes and Caitlyn finally getting an attack speed nerf. Thornmail now causes grievous wounds and lethality has been changed quite a bit - so you’re definitely going to want to jump into these notes before your next game. The Ancient Coin line also no longer gives the free skill point, but a movement speed buff to surrounding allies as they run towards you.

There are several quality of life changes as well! The SKT T1 skins are now updated with new sound effects and Flex Queue is working a bit differently. Summoned terrain like Trundle’s Ice Pillar won’t be giving vision as they did before.

If all of this is too overwhelming, you can check out our usual condescended patch notes here and Riot’s official notes here.

Recommended Items Pass

We’ve updated the default recommended items pages for a bunch of champions (mainly supports) to reflect some of the item updates from across the season.

Krugs

Medium sized Krugs can now be Smited!

Medium Krugs do enough damage and have enough health that Smiting them isn’t really a waste of cooldown, so we’re giving you the ability to do so.

Vision Abilities

A number of abilities in League of Legends grant vision, whether through a debuff on the champions it hits or a summoned object that grants vision around itself. Abilities like Hawkshot obviously should give vision, because that’s their job. We’re starting from removing vision from some summoned terrain - like Pillar of Ice - which are primarily used for other purposes (disruption in this case), yet also give vision for some reason. Brushmaker, on the other hand, generally requires an ally to walk into it to be valuable, and so we think the vision granted makes sense; it’s just castable at too high a range. Overall, we’ll looking at vision-granting abilities in future patches in order to create more consistency around the “uh-oh, they can see me!” experience.

Trundle’s E - Pillar of Ice no longer gives vision around the cast area

Ivern’s W - Brushmaker cast range changed to ||| 1600 >>> 800

Anivia’s W - Crystallize no longer gives vision around the cast area

Attack & Ability Queueing

Many abilities are meant to get champions within striking range of their foes. In these situations, we often add an attack command at the end of the ability so champions aren’t standing around awkwardly after closing in on an enemy. Based on how input queueing works in League, however, this attack command overwrites any attempt to queue a second ability during the original ability’s cast time. We’re modifying a bunch of abilities so the hidden attack command no longer overwrites spell queueing attempts, but will still work if a second ability isn’t cast. Let us know if you think we’ve left something off the list!

THIS IS A BIT CONFUSING :: Changed several interactions where abilities overwrote any spell queuing commands, instead forcing the caster to immediately begin basic-attacking once the ability completed.

SO HERE’S AN EXAMPLE :: If Pantheon tried to queue E - Heartseeker Strike during W - Aegis of Zeonia’s dash, he’d begin basic-attacking the target once Aegis of Zeonia completed instead of casting Heartseeker Strike.

BUT WHAT ABOUT MY… :: This change only affects the following abilities:

Affected abilities

Aatrox’s Q - Dark Descent

Amumu’s Q - Bandage Toss

Darius’s E - Apprehend

Ekko’s E - Phase Dive and R - Chronobreak

Elise’s Spider Q - Venomous Bite

Evelynn’s E - Ravage

Irelia’s Q - Bladesurge

Kha’Zix’s Q - Taste Their Fear

Kindred’s E - Mounting Dread

Lee Sin’s Q - Resonating Strike

Maokai’s W - Twisted Advance

Pantheon’s W - Aegis of Zeonia

Poppy’s E - Heroic Charge

Rek’Sai’s R - Void Rush

Talon’s Q - Noxian Diplomacy

Flex Queue

It sucks to be working your way up the Flex Queue ladder with a group of friends, and then suddenly have your group become invalidated because someone happened to advance into the next tier before the rest of the group. This was happening a lot for groups around Diamond, where restrictions really started tightening, so we’re relaxing the high-MMR restrictions originally placed on Flex parties.

RELAXED RESTRICTIONS :: Flex Queue party restrictions are ||| the same as Solo Queue (Diamond, Master, and Challenger parties have tighter restrictions) >>> identical for all Tiers. All Flex Queue parties can now include players within one Tier, including Diamond, Master, and Challenger parties.

Rotating Game Mode

Dark Star: Singularity runs from 7/14/17 12:00 PT to 7/18/17 04:00 PT and 7/21/17 11:00 PT to 7/25/17 04:00 PT. Play as Dark Star Thresh in a 3v3 match on the Cosmic Ruins, which features a Dark Star Thresh announcer and chilling music.
