League of Legends patch 8.12 change list

It’s a small one

Riot Games

You’re going to see us write that this patch is small a lot. Why? Because it is small.

Originally patch 8.12 was supposed to have new items to change up bruisers and fighters a bit, but Riot has pulled them back at the last minute. With all the big changes in the last couple patches really switching up everything we know and love, Riot Games doesn’t want to shove more changes in your mouth. They want you to chew and swallow what you have already first.

That being said, lots of bruisers like Poppy and Sejuani have gotten some tweaks to their stats and skills. Champions with shields are also getting some touches up on how their shields work.

This patch is also releasing two skins to celebrate the World Cup: Sweeper Rammus and Playmaker Lee Sin. Both skins are releasing with chromas, if you want to change up those team colors!

As usual, you can check out Riot’s full patch notes here and our shortened version here.

Allied Shield Abilities & Items

This pass comes in two parts: abilities that shield allies (“gifted shields”) and items that increase shield strength. On the ability front, we’re tightening up the timing requirements of gifted shields. Enemies should be able to play around shields in some scenarios by baiting them out and waiting for them to fall off, rather than always having to try to brute-force their way through. Shortening the duration of shields makes that counterplay more realistic in more cases and makes proper timing of shield abilities a more important skill for enchanters to master.

On the item front, the Forbidden Idol line has been incredibly stat-efficient since the introduction of heal/shield power back in Season 6. This was meant to offset supports’ historical lack of income at the time, but the economy’s changed in the two years since. Simple stat nerfs to these items will bring them to a more reasonable spot (particularly when stacked with each other in the late game) and hopefully give enchanters a little more freedom in the items they choose to pick up, since “not an Idol item” is now a less punishing tradeoff.

Janna

Shield decays after a brief delay.

GIANT’S STRENGTH Grants 50% of base attack damage as additional base attack damage ⇒ bonus attack damage

Maw of Malmortius

Bugfixin’.

BUGFIX Maw’s shield now properly lasts the full 5 seconds again

[REMOVED] Banner of Command

Banner of Command was intended as a strategic-niche item that pushes a lane autonomously, forcing enemies to deal with the threat while Banner’s owner is making plays elsewhere on the map. However, it’s only ever lived in two states: rarely purchased even in the situations it was meant for, or meta-warping. We’re removing Banner from the shop and taking a step back to evaluate if this item niche is both engaging and fun enough to work in League. Even if that answer is “yes,” Banner would need some serious work to make a return, so this is goodbye for the foreseeable future.

Runes

Precision

Hail of Blades

BONUS ATTACK SPEED 50-100% ⇒ 75-125%

Presence of Mind

Bugfixin’.

BUGFIX Many champions whose ultimate abilities use pet controls or multiple activations (ex. Talon recalling his R - Shadow Assault or Riven casting R2 - Wind Slash) now properly gain Presence of Mind’s cooldown reduction on takedowns that occur while their ults are still active

Sorcery

Celerity

BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED 3% ⇒ 1.5%

DAMAGE CONVERSION Gain 4.8% (AD) or 8% (AP) ⇒ 9.6% (AD) or 16% (AP) of your bonus movement speed as bonus stats
