Champion changes

Aatrox – Bonus damage on his Q towards minions has been removed

Akali – Akali continues to be a pain to pay against; as a result, Riot has further nerfed her shroud (W) duration by one second at all levels.

Camille – Base attack speed has been reduced from 0.644 to 0.625 in order to reduce her early game pressure by slowing her clear speed.

Galio – Galio has been adjusted a fair amount, his play style will be changing fairly noticeably with less emphasis on his support like ultimate, but increased damage and effectiveness on his damaging abilities. Q mana cost has been drastically reduced at the later levels, from 70/85/100/115/130 to 70/75/80/85/90 mana. The windblast damage potion has also been increased at all levels, both base and AP scaling wise, however, the flat tornado damage has been removed. Galio’s E cast time has been reduced slightly while its dash speed has also increased, this makes Galio’s E much easier to land. His ultimate (R) no longer provides damage reduction for an ally and no longer knocks up enemies hit, making Galio’s R an inferior pantheon ult.

Illaoi – Test of Spirit (E) cooldown has been reduced at earlier levels from 20/18/16/14/12 to 16/15/14/13/12. Ultimate (R) cooldown also reduced at later levels from 120/105/90 to 120/95/70.

Irelia – W cooldown is longer and damage reduction has been nerfed in order to give opponents a better window to kill Irelia. CD up at earlier levels, while damage reduction has been reduced by a flat 10%, now to 40%.

Jax – Every third auto damage from Jax’s R passive has been nerfed from 100/160/220 to 100/140/180.

LeBlanc – Distortion (W) cooldown has been increased at earlier levels in order to tone down Leblanc’s overly large lane pressure and poke.

Viktor – Viktor’s poke has been hit, with Q cooldown increasing by 1 second at all levels, with its base damage further being reduced. In order to compensate for the reduction in damage, his E will receive a slight cooldown reduction and damage boost. Overall a tone down towards top Viktor.

Runes

Dark Harvest – Base damage reduced from 40-80 to 20-60, a welcomed change considering Dark Harvest previously had too large an impact in the early game given its scaling nature.

Items

Death’s Dance – 15% of all damage dealt will now grant healing instead of strictly physical damage.

Poacher’s Dirk – Item has been removed
