League of Legends patch 8.22 change list

Praetorian and Program skins!

Riot Games

This is officially the last patch before preseason begins, which means ... it’s another small one. A handful of champions that are in bad or too-good spots are getting tweaks, as usual, but nothing groundbreaking is happening this patch.

We are getting four new skins: Praetorian Graves and Fiddlesticks and Program LeBlanc and Nami. Both sets look great and feature a very tech-y vibe, though the Program skins are sleek and modern looking, whereas the Praetorian skins look like they’re out of the apocalypse.

It’s also worth mentioning that the ranked season ends during this patch. If you’re pining for Victorious Orianna or any of the chromas, you better get your butt to Gold already! There isn’t much time left, so ranked queues are probably going to be a little wild this week. If you’ve already gotten yourself to the rank you want for the season, then you can take a break and kick it in an ARAM to complete some K/DA missions.

You can check out Riot’s full patch notes here and our tl;dr here.



Riot Games

Last-hit assistance removed. W cooldown increased early. R damage decreased early; increased late.


[REM] CHEATER CHEATER :: No longer has 4 last-hit assistance

W - Twilight Shroud

COOLDOWN :: 17/15.5/14/12.5/11 seconds >>> 21/18.5/16/13.5/11 seconds

R - Perfect Execution

BASE DAMAGE :: 100/150/200 >>> 85/150/215


Riot Games

Small improvement to Lunge targeting.

Q - Lunge

PRIORITIES :: Lunge still prioritizes R Vitals then P Vitals, but now prioritizes an R-affected target next even without a Vital to proc

LESSER PRIORITIES :: After the above prioritization, Lunge looks for a low-health champion in range, last-hittable minion in range, champion in range, then nearest unit


Riot Games


Passive - Whisper

ONE :: Jhin’s movement speed bonus on crit is now determined based on his attack speed when the basic attack fires, rather than when it hits

TWO :: If Jhin crits multiple times in a row, his movement speed bonus is now recalculated for each crit, rather than each crit refreshing the duration of the first crit’s bonus

THREE :: Fixed a bug where Jhin was getting an empowered haste off his first Hail of Blades attack (the one that procs it). This is a fix to the fix we released in 8.20 which only corrected the AD conversion portion of this interaction.

FOUR :: Fixed a bug where Jhin was NOT getting an empowered haste off his third Hail of Blades attack


Riot Games

W damage decreased.

W - Distortion

BASE DAMAGE :: 85/125/165/205/245 >>> 75/115/155/195/235

HEAL VS NON-CHAMPS :: 200% base heal >>> 125% base heal (values unchanged)


Riot Games

Grey health no longer scales with max health but scales harder off AD. W movement speed decreased; scales with lethality instead of AD. E stun scales with lethality instead of rank. R scales with lethality.

RATIO PER TICK :: 0.7 ability power >>> 0.85 ability power


[UPD] Time Warp Tonic

Potion and biscuit regen is front-loaded but no longer extended. No longer affects elixirs.

[NEW] CHUGGING :: Consuming a potion or biscuit grants 50% of its health and/or mana restoration immediately but prevents that consumable from being used again until the effect ends. Health/mana per tick is then reduced by half for the effect’s regular duration.
