  • Kayn
  • Lillia

Jungle Changes

We are also getting quite a few jungle changes that's feeling pretty major. They aim to remove some of the complexity from the role, while keeping the depth, impact and agency of the role. Here's what's coming for Junglers.

  • Buff Sharing: After a few minutes of game time, killing the Brambleback or Sentinel will drop a temporary buff that other players can pick up by walking up to the buff circle. Since there will now be double the buffs for your team, the Evolved versions of Red and Blue buffs will be removed.
  • Conservation: We're introducing a new Jungler-specific buff called “Conservation.” When you jungle, you’ll gain Conservation stacks over time, and killing a large monster will cash in the stacks for gold
  • Smite: We’re removing Challenging Smite (or Red Smite) due to a low pick rate amongst Junglers and changing how the Smite Upgrade functions. Starting this patch, Smite will upgrade based on the number of times it’s been used versus how many monsters you've killed, so the upgrade time will become more consistent across games. Additionally, both base Smite and upgraded Smite will deal a fixed amount of damage to monsters, instead of scaling based on your champion level.
  • Jungle Monsters: We’re adjusting the general stats and behavior of Jungle Monsters to make clear times faster overall and to let players have an easier time surviving against them, especially in the early game.
  • Rift Herald: We’re increasing the summoning and charge speeds of Rift Herald so that the value gained from defeating her will be more consistent.

Item Changes

  • Horizon Focus: Skill shots that hit a champion from a distance will apply stacks to your enemy. Hitting crowd control abilities will grant extra stacks. Gain enough stacks to consume them and deal bonus damage.
  • Lord Dominik’s Regards: After you’re out of combat with other champions for a few seconds, your first attack against a champ will have increased Attack Speed.
  • Soulstealer: Through its new passive, Soulflare, Soulstealer will reduce the cooldown on all basic abilities after you takedown enemy champions. You’ll also gain extra Ability Power for a few seconds after.
  • Phase Rush: Triggers in the same way as before (hitting a champion with three separate attacks or abilities) and still grants Move Speed, but instead of Slow Resist, your current cooldowns will be reduced, and you'll gain Ability Haste for a short period.
  • Sudden Impact: Replaces Champion and when you exit stealth or use a dash, blink, or teleport to deal damage to an enemy champion, you'll gain a bit of Adaptive Penetration
