League of Legends Patch 8.4 change list

Lots of champion changes and huge AP item changes ahoy!

Riot Games

Patch 8.4 is filled with the meta-shifting stuff you’ve been waiting for. We’ve got new runes, champion kit changes, and even changes to Baron and Elder Dragon.

Volibear, Kalista, and Rengar all are receiving big updates to their kits, but not big enough to consider them reworks. Rengar’s Q has essentially been reverted from his change last year, so now he’s back to obliterating squishies with easy.

Most of the AP items in the game have been heavily changed, gaining cooldown reduction and losing ability power in some cases. There are also two new items added, as well as the return of Twin Shadows!

Dark Star Jarvan IV and the highly anticipated Dragon Master Swain skin also release this patch, both for 1350 RP each.

No, Kai’Sa is not in this patch. You’ll see her in two weeks.

As usual, you can read Riot’s notes here and our shortened version here.
