League of Legends patch 8.14 change list

Lots of tune-ups in this patch, but nothing major

Riot Games

Finally, after three weeks of waiting, it is patch time. This patch doesn’t have anything mega fancy like a new champion or rework, but it’s filled with lots of tweaks to help balance things out.

Notably Aatrox and Fizz have gotten the bulk of the changes. Aatrox has been in a weird place after his rework, where he’s either too strong or too weak, so hopefully the changes to his Q will help align that. Fizz is getting buffs to his W, Seastone Trident, which is frankly, scary.

This patch also includes the new cursor update, which has options for colorblind players. The cursor has been in need of an update for a long time, but fear not. If you want that retro gloved hand, you can enable that in your settings.

Most importantly, the Samsung Galaxy skins drop this patch. The skins not only represent the players that won the 2017 World Championship, but there’s also significant Korean cultural significance behind every skin.

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

Items

Jungle Items

If you have the most individual total gold on your team, lane minions kills grant less gold.

Jungle funneling tends to be a very passive and unengaging strategy, largely rooted in avoiding conflict. This is subverting a lot of normal laning patterns, so we’re looking to significantly nerf the strategy. We’ll be pursuing cleaner system solutions to the problem in preseason, but for now we’re just trying to decrease the viability of funneling.

Hunter’s Machete/Hunter’s Talisman

NEWMONSTER HUNTER If you have the most individual total gold on your team, lane minions kills will grant 10 less gold. This penalty is removed upon completion of an Enchantment on a Skirmisher’s Sabre or Stalker’s Blade.

Summoner Spells

Teleport

Cooldown increased.

BASE COOLDOWN 300 seconds ⇒ 360 seconds

CANCELED COOLDOWN 200 seconds ⇒ 240 seconds

Runes

Conqueror

Bonus attack damage decreased.

BONUS ATTACK DAMAGE 10-35 (at levels 1-18) ⇒ 6-35 (at levels 1-18)

Ghost Poro

Ghost Poro now requires an active placement.

[NEW] DELIBERATE HAUNTING After 1 second in brush, your current trinket becomes a ghost poro item, which may be used to place ghost poro

[UPDATED] SPOOKY SPOOKY While either you or your ghost poro is anywhere in enemy territory (past the river), gain 5-20 (based on level) ability power or 3-12 bonus attack damage, adaptive.

Zombie Ward

Zombie Wards no longer spawn from friendly wards which time out. Damaging a champion after destroying a ward inflicts bonus damage.

[NEW] WARD’S REVENGE Damaging a champion after destroying a ward inflicts 30-90 (at levels 1-18) bonus magic damage

[UPDATED] FRIENDLY BURIAL Zombie Wards now only spawn from enemy wards killed, not also friendly wards which time out.

Cursor Update

After nine and a half years, we’re updating the in-game cursor! It’s got all the same functionality as the bronze gauntlet we’ve worn for years but with a bunch of improvements.

NEW All cursor states have been updated (see above for some of the most common)

SHAPE Cleaner and simpler, so it’s easier to track as it moves across your screen

COLORS Adjusted across all states prevent blending in with the map or with particles in chaotic team fights

SCALABLE Can now be scaled up and down in the Options > Interface menu. Great for 4K resolutions!

NOSTALGIA You can still switch back to the old cursor via a toggle in the Options > Interface menu

Champ Select

Failing to ban a champion no longer kicks you from champ select. This change went live during 8.13.

It’s a bit harsh to break up a champ select lobby on a missed ban selection, so instead, failing to ban a champion will default to “No Ban” and champ select will keep on truckin’. Failing to select a champion for yourself will still incur a dodge.
