Following the huge changes in patch 14.1, the latest League of Legends update, 14.2, is here to rebalance the Champions that became too strong or too weak in the new version of the game.

This patch has a lot of balance changes for Champions, alongside new skins, item changes and more. Keep reading for the full rundown!

This update has a whole host of gameplay changes for Champions that either need some help or need cutting down to size in the wake of the big 14.1 patch. In 14.2 you can expect to see the biggest offenders like Fizz getting some nerfs, while Champions that have suffered like Camille are getting buffs.

In addition, Smolder will hit the rift later this patch, and a bunch of new skins will be released. New items have had their numbers tweaked to balance the game further, and there's a large array of bug fixes too.

Items

Bloodsong

Bloodsong has contributed pretty heavily to the amount of burst in the game at the moment, which is something we’re aiming to correct here. We believe Spellblade is important for this item’s feel, so we’re nerfing the aspect that’s much harder for supports to appreciate.

  • Expose Weakness Increased Damage: 12% (melee) / 8% (ranged) ⇒ 10% (melee) / 6% (ranged)

Experimental Hexplate

  • Item Recipe: Noonquiver + Tunneler + 600 gold ⇒ Hearthbound Axe+ Tunneler + 700 gold
  • Attack Speed: 20% ⇒ 25%
  • Passive - Overdrive: 35% bonus Attack Speed ⇒ 30% bonus Attack Speed

Frozen Heart

  • Total Cost: 2300 ⇒ 2400

Horizon Focus

  • Passive - Hypershot and Focus Range Requirement: 700 ⇒ 600
  • Passive - Focus AoE Reveal Radius: 1200 units ⇒ 1400 units

Phantom Dancer

  • Item Recipe: Hearthbound Axe + Cloak of Agility + 1000 gold ⇒ Zeal + Rectrix + 800 gold

Riftmaker

  • Total Cost: 3000 ⇒ 3100

Steel Sigil

  • Total Cost: 1200 ⇒ 1100 (Note: Due to the gold decrease to Steel Sigil, the combine costs for items building out of of it such as Death’s Dance and Guardian Angel have had their combine costs increased by 100, but total cost is unchanged.)

Stormsurge

  • Ability Power: 100 ⇒ 90
  • Passive - Squall Damage: 100-200 (+30% AP) (melee) / 75-150 (+22.5% AP) (ranged) ⇒ 100-200 (+20% AP)(melee) / 75-150 (+15% AP) (ranged)

Stridebreaker

  • Attack Speed: 25% ⇒ 30%
  • Total Cost: 3100 ⇒ 3000

Support Items

  • One At A Time: The gold penalty now applies globally to anyone who has a support item in their inventory. Additionally, every champion with a support item now contributes towards hitting the minion penalty.

Bounty Adjustments

We made an adjustment to the bounty system which will further reduce individual bounties for those on the losing team. We’re looking to improve an edge case where players on the losing team can get a seemingly undeserved bounty due to accumulating a large amount of CS without dying. We also believe there's room to push this modifier further, as the team with more gold should already have plenty of opportunities on the map to progress their lead and they don't need to secure as large a bounty on the champion that could just be the only hope for the losing team.

  • Bounty Gold: 20-80% of a players bounty is reduced depending on team gold deficit ⇒ 30-90% of a players bounty is reduced depending on team gold deficit

Infernal Drake Adjustments

The new Infernal Terrain mechanic isn’t quite making the impact we had hoped for, so we’re looking to up the Ability Haste each Cinder offers so that they are more valuable when you decide to adjust your game plan or pathing to pick some up.

  • Ability Haste per Infernal Cinder: 0.3 ⇒ 0.6

Gameplay Quality Improvements

In this patch we have a long list of smaller one-off changes and minor balance adjustments with the goal to help some champions that need it or make some mechanics a bit more intuitive and satisfying for players.

Champions

  • We don’t believe that Kayn should be able to accelerate passive orb gain through runes. We’ve previously adjusted this with First Strike previously and are now doing the same for Aery now. As such, Kayn’s Passive no longer works with Aery.
  • Red Kayn’s R now heals even if the unit dies during the channel.
  • Taric E now ghosts units during the cast.
  • Rammus will properly play his AA animation when his W ends.
  • Kled Q is no longer variable duration, changing from 1.75-2 seconds to 1.75 flat.
  • Evelynn now tracks enemies falling under ult threshold much more often.
  • Jayce Hammer E now uses regular knockback instead of fixed distance upon the spell being cast.
  • Evelynn W can no longer target small monsters (Medium Krug and larger only). It already cannot target minions.
  • Heimerdinger Q and R+Q turrets now update their stats every 1 second, reflecting level-ups, rank-ups, and AP purchases. They no longer snapshot their stats when summoned.
  • Teemo’s default adaptive force stat changed: Attack Damage ⇒ Ability Power
  • Yorick’in-games runes will now replace Glacial Augment with First Strike and Aftershock with Grasp of the Undying. This will affect 0.06% of Yorick players.
  • Gragas W now applies against turrets and other structures, dealing 50% normal damage.
  • Gragas W now applies damage in an AoE when targeting structures and includes them in its AoE when targeting units nearby.
  • Kennen will now respawn with W fully stacked.
  • Ornn R and R2 will no longer be able to target allies or the minimap.
  • Cho’Gath R now grants +2.5 cast range per stack, maximum +25 range at 10 stacks.
  • Cho’Gath R attack range per stack increased: 4.62 / 6.15 / 7.69 ⇒ 4.7 / 6.2 / 7.7
  • Cho’Gath R tooltip now displays the range increases if you hold Shift for more info.
  • Fizz W now applies to structures at 50% damage. The DoT does not apply to inhibitors.
  • Jax W and R now apply to structures at 50% damage.
  • Lulu’s Pix moves faster, especially when further away from its target.
  • Vayne Q-empowered autos cannot be accidentally canceled.
  • Kog’Maw gains an AA range indicator during his W (like Lethal Tempo/RFC).
  • Nami R will strike behind her on cast to mirror visuals and similar spells.
  • Trundle Q has 25 bonus range.
  • Volibear Q has 25 bonus range.
  • Nocturne Q trail has 25 units more forgiveness before you count as outside of it.
  • Nocturne Q trail now attaches to large and epic monsters in addition to champions.
  • Brand now damages every 0.25 seconds instead of every 1.05 seconds.
  • Nilah W buffer out of other spells.
  • Nilah W can now be cast during other spell windups.
  • Nilah EQ is very inconsistent and often doesn't fire Q—adjusted to be more consistent.
  • Wards that would be placed beside a brush are now slightly nudged into them.
  • Ziggs’ W should be able to be activated while rooted etc.
  • Swain’s Passive will now be tracked in his tooltip and icon.
  • Poppy’s buckler will now bounce back to her if her target is dead when it hits.
  • Akali’s Passive now extends itself very slightly if attacks are taken in the last few frames before the buff expires.
  • Shaco’s clone will now attack the nearest visible enemy champion within 1500 range of it when dead.
  • Shaco’s clone will now stop to cast the fake W and will only do so within 300 units of Shaco prime.
  • Shaco clone will stop to cast a fake E and will only do so within 575 units of Shaco prime’s E target, this also fakes a missile.

Other Changes

  • Scryer’s Bloom will no longer reveal champion pets for longer than champions, as that was unintentionally revealing those characters for longer.
  • Shifted Tiamat and Ravenous Hydra actives to use attack timers if those are lower than their cast time.
  • Momentum items (Dead Man’s Plate, Trailblazer) will no longer lose Momentum when attacking traps or plants.
  • A number of champions properly have cooldowns listed on their passives.

ARAM Balance Changes

We're aware of some items and champions overperforming in ARAM right now (cough Stormsurge), but with the balance adjustments coming to Summoner's Rift this patch (which are also inherited by ARAM) we want to take a bit more time to avoid compounding two buffs or nerfs onto a champion. You can expect some more follow up balance adjustments to come in 14.3.

Nerf

  • Aphelios: Damage Dealt: 105% ⇒ 100%
  • Gwen: Damage Dealt: 105% ⇒ 100%
  • Mordekaiser: Damage Taken: 100% ⇒ 105%
  • Kayle: Damage Taken: 100% ⇒ 110%
  • Teemo: R Maximum Charges: 3/4/5 (levels 6/11/16) ⇒ 2/3/4 (levels 6/11/16)

ARAM Surrender Adjustments

  • Surrender Votes Required: 3 of 5 players ⇒ 4 of 5 players
  • Game Time Required Before Surrender: 8 minutes ⇒ 12 minutes

Brand VFX Update

Smolder isn’t the only champion heating up this patch. The VFX for Brand’s abilities on the following skins have been updated:

  • Base Brand
  • Crycore Brand
  • Zombie Brand
  • Spiritfire Brand
  • Battle Boss Brand
