Pick a card, any card—Welcome to Patch 4.1a!
Was this your card? If it was a Yellow Twisted Fate card and you’re stunned we’re back already for another set of Patch Notes then we guessed right!
This patch we’re feeling a little silly and are celebrating April Fools with a very special event. You’ll want to pay close attention to everything that's waiting for you… We also have a brand new game mode, Ultimate Spellbook and it’s bringing chaos energy with it! Lastly, we’ve looked at some of the previous adjustments and additions last patch and nerfing some of the champions that have been toeing the line, and buffing those who still need a little extra oomph.
Reminder: content will be released throughout the patch.
ULTIMATE SPELL BOOK (USB)
We’re bringing chaos energy to the Rift! Pick a champ, and choose between 3 different ultimates. Whichever one you choose, will replace one of your Spells like Ignite or Heal! In addition to that with every kill and assist you get, the larger you’ll grow, and you’ll even gain a little tenacity. But don’t worry if you’re like us and tend to die more than you rack up kills, you’ll grow smaller and smaller on every death and gain move speed, weee. We hope you have fun in this new game mode, let us know what you think!
Ultimate Spellbook will be available to play from March 30 at 00:01 UTC until April 24 at 00:01 UTC.
ULTIMATE SPELL BOOK EVENT
Celebrate the launch of our new game mode during this fun event!
The Ultimate Spellbook Event will be available to play on March 30 at 00:01 UTC.
CARD TRICK CHAOS
Try and complete serious and cataclysmically vital missions during our silliest event yet!
The Card Trick Chaos Event will be available to play on March 30 at 00:01 UTC.
AP Amumu's ability to solo Baron Nashor and Elder Dragon is too strong in the late game, so we’re nerfing his ability to take those objectives, while leaving his early game power in-tact.
- Ability Power ratio: 0.75% → 0.6%
Jhin is not performing well in higher levels of play, so four now, we’re buffing one of his more difficult abilities to help him out.
- Cooldown: 14s → 12s
After our recent buffs to Nautilus, he has been dominating in the Jungle. We’re putting our anchor down, and taking back some of those previous adjustments.
- Damage to monsters: 200% → 175%
NUNU & WILLUMP
Nunu didn't benefit much from the new tank items, so he needs a slight buff to help him be the backbone his team needs.
- Health per level: 105 → 112
- Heal bonus health ratio: 8% → 9%
Currently, Pyke support is weaker when compared to picking him in the Mid Lane or Jungle. So we’re making some adjustments all around to balance his power between the three roles.
- Damage ratio to minions: 100% → 80%
- Damage ratio to monsters: 110% → 90%
- Damage ratio to monsters: 110% → 100%
DEATH FROM BELOW
- Additional gold ratio for solo kills: 110% → 100%
- Gold granted to Pyke for assisting a teammate: 110% → 120%
- Extra gold cap: 550g → 600g
- When teammates kill the enemy within Pyke’s ultimate range, Pyke's extra gold ratio: 110% → 120%
- Extra gold cap: 550g → 600g
Last patch we released Amaranth Twinguard, and it has been giving Rammus too much armor, making him an unkillable menace. We’re telling him to arma-chill-o this patch and nerfing the amount of armor he gets in the later stages of the game.
DEFENSIVE BALL CURL
- Base damage: 8/10/12/14 → 10/12/14/16
- Percent armor boost: 70/80/90/100% → 70/75/80/85%
- [NEW] No longer reduces movement speed by 30% when activated
- [BUGFIXED] Fixed the issue where the percentage of resists obtained from other sources being higher than normal when enabled.
Since the last patch, we’ve seen the win rate of Ability Power Varus become significantly higher than his Attack Damage builds. This time, we’re nerfing him slightly to bring the win rates closer together.
Chain of Corruption
- Ability Power ratio: 100% → 85%
After Warwick’s last adjustment, his ability to take fights in the earlier stages of the game have diminished. So, we’ve decided to sharpen his claws and buff him back to a healthier state.
JAWS OF THE BEAST
- Damage converted to heal: 22.5/40/57.5/75% → 37.5/50/62.5/75%
Even after our last nerf, Zeri is still too strong. We’re taking another swing, and this time aiming to strike down some of her electrifying strength in the late game.
- Health per level: 120 → 112
- Basic attack chains bonus Attack Damage: 25% Attack Damage → 20% Attack Damage
MANTLE OF THE TWELFTH HOUR
We know how strong Mantle is, especially in the later stages of the game. However, we think there is still some room to improve the item in the early to mid game stages. We’re swapping some of the resistance stats with health, which we hope makes it feel better to use in the early game.
- Provides 200 health
- Armor: 50 → 40
- Magic resistance: 50 → 40
Some ranged Champions such as Urgot do not have a lot of item choices that offer them damage and health. So, we’re adjusting Sterak’s Gage to be available for ranged champions, which should provide them more options.
Stats: Ranged champions can now buy this item.
