LoL PBE 9.11 update: the major Champions changes

Akali – Akali has been gutted this patch. Passive energy restoration has been reduced at its later stages, with AP ratio down from 0.7 to 0.5, and AD ratio down from 0.9 to 0.6. This will seriously impact Akali’s skirmishing ability in the mid to late game, while largely reducing Akali’s burst throughout all points of the game.

Janna – W damage lowered at later levels from 55/100/145/190/235 to 55/90/125/160/195. However, to compensate, cooldown has been moved from a flat 8 seconds to 8/7.5/7/6.5/6s. E shield slightly increased by 10 at all ranks, with cooldown moved to 16/15/14/13/12. New Eye of the Storm (E) effect, any slow or knock airborne effect from Janna grants 20% cdr on her E. Janna may shield less in lane, but will be much more effective in large team fights.

Galio – W base damage lowered, instead, moving to increased AP scaling. E base damage slightly down at lower levels. Overall, encourages a late game AP Galio play style, while nerfing current tank builds.

Gragas – Slight base stat increases to health, hp per level and AD.

Jayce – Shock blast (Q) base and AD scaling damage reduced, now to 70/115/160/205/250 (1.0 AD scaling).

Karthus – Ultimate damage nerfed a fair amount, base damage down by 50 at all ranks, and AP scaling down by 0.1, now to 0.65.

Master Yi – Base attack speed lowered from 0.733 to 0.679. Bonus Alpha strike (Q) damage on repeat targets nerfed to 15%.

Rammus – Ultimate damage hugely reduced from 40/80/120 to 30/60/90.

Zac – Q increased cooldown at earlier levels, now to 15/13.5/12/10.5/9. W damage switched to 2% of target’s max health for every 100 AP Zac has. Ultimate reworked, Zac bounces 4 times (unable to use skills or attack), dealing AP damage (140/210/280 + 0.4AP). Initial bounce on a target knocks them back, hard cc’ing them for 1 second. Following bounces slow for 20% and deals 50% reduced damage for each additional bounce.
