League of Legends Patch 8.6 change list

All the updates in one place.

Riot Games

This patch is a pretty big one. There are notable changes to both champions and items, as well as the release of some big skins that we’ve been drooling over.

Duskblade of Draktharr has been changed so much that assassin champions that typically bought the item are now getting a handful of buffs. Since they relied so much on Duskblade, Riot didn’t want the assassins left in a bad spot after nerfing the item. Make sure to read through your favorite assassin notes.

Pizza Delivery Sivir and Birdio are the two April Fools skins for this year, and they make us super hungry. Also releasing this patch is the crafting exclusive Hextech Alistar skin and the ultimate Gun Goddess Miss Fortune skin.

There are also two more runes being added to the roster.

For Riot’s full notes, you can take a peek here. For our condensed version, you can look here.

W - Void Spike

This bit is not related to Duskblade. At the moment, the power in W pushes Kha’Zix to the jungle, and taking away that binding could help him be slightly more viable elsewhere (even if that requires future buffs).

STACKS ON STACKS:

Shields now stack!

Most buffs and debuffs stack! Some examples...

  • Oriannas can now have up to 4 of The Ball floating around her using E - Command: Protect
  • Each Nunu in a game can give up to 120% bonus ability power to a single Nunu using W - Blood Boil, for a grand total of 500% potential bonus ability power
  • Each Nami can buff an ally with E - Tidecaller’s Blessing at the same time, resulting in three SUPER CHARGED Nami basic attacks!
  • Sivir has claimed the title of The Fast, at a recorded top speed of ~2000 while all Sivirs are R - On the Hunt

Slows don’t stack! The slows will still be put on the target, but only the strongest slow applies.

That’s it! Go forth and slam your opponents with Leap of Faith x 5, or maybe a Penta Umbral Trespass.

Honor

After popping the hood on Honor, we’re seeing that the path back from dishonor is a bit too harsh. So now it’s less steep. There are no other changes to Honor.

HONOR RECLIMBS The requirements to move up from Dishonorable to Honor level 2 have been lowered

Parties Level Up

Voice Chat

Later this patch, your party won’t ignore your cries for help because they’ll hear you in voice chat.

Voice works for any party of two or more players. As soon as you join a friend’s party you’ll connect to voice chat automatically and remain connected for as many games as you play together.

QUEUE TOGETHER SPEAK TOGETHER Voice chat only works for parties that queue together

TALK ME THROUGH IT Your party connects to voice chat automatically right from the lobby. It’s that easy.

I CAN’T HEAR YOU Every player can adjust their team’s volume in-game by clicking the mic icon at the bottom of their screen
