Feature

League of legends patch 11.3 is finally here, and the devs will look to tone down on much of the systemic healing in the MOBA with this update.

The Omnivamp passive on items like the Goredrinker and Sterak’s Gage will be significantly toned down to make abusers like Renekton, Olaf, and Darius much less oppressive in the game.

Moreover, the League of Legends devs will also be introducing significant tweaks to both Jinx and Rell, making the former a much more viable meta pick, while toning down on the overall tankiness of the latter.

League of Legends players looking for a detailed description of patch 11.3 can look up Riot’s official website. 

However, for a brief overview, here are the major highlights:

2. League of Legends Item changes

Mage items

Riot is doing a “pass on” mage items to create “more balance amongst their purchase rates” and stop any item from “overshadowing” the others. The devs are also broadening Horizon Focus by lowering its activation range so that more mages can take advantage of its specialty.

Lich Bane

  • Ability power: 80 to 70

Horizon Focus

  • Ability power: 100 to 115
  • Hypershot range: 750 to 600

Verdant Barrier

  • [Update] Adaptive passive: Every 60 seconds gain three bonus magic resistance, stacking up to five times. Taking magic damage reduces the time it takes to gain magic resistance to grants 0.5 magic resistance per unit killed (up to 15)
  • Combine cost: 315 gold to 115 gold

Banshee’s Veil

  • Ability power: 65 to 80
  • Combine cost: 400 gold to 700 gold

Seeker’s Armguard

  • Combine cost: 165 gold to 265 gold
  • Total cost: 900 gold to 1,000 gold

Zhonya’s Hourglass

  • Total cost: 2,500 gold to 2,600 gold

Enchanter items

With Staff of Flowing Water largely overperforming compared to other second item choices, Riot is making some changes to Enchanter items to ensure that enchanters feel they have access to viable Grievous Wounds options.

Staff of Flowing Water

  • Ability power: 60 to 50

Chemtech Putrifer

  • Ability haste: 15 to 20
  • [Update] Puffcap toxin passive: Inflicts immobilized enemy champions with 60 percent Grievous Wounds for three seconds to Healing or shielding an allied champion now empowers the ally’s next damage to an enemy champion with 60 percent Grievous Wounds for three seconds.

Fighter items

Riot is upping Silvermere Dawn’s power and removing the empowered damage to minions on Ironspike Whip.

Silvermere Dawn

  • Attack damage: 35 to 40
  • Health: 200 to 300

Ironspike Whip

  • Crescent empowered damage: Ironspike no longer deals more damage to low health minons and monsters

Marksman items

Riot is “reshaping” what Phantom Dancer gives to marksman champions and adding more “oomph” to Immortal Shieldbow since it’s only purchased by hard-bound, short-ranged users that benefit from lifesteal.

Phantom Dancer

  • Build path: Dagger and Dagger and Zeal and 950 gold to Zeal and Long Sword and Long Sword and 850 gold
  • Attack damage: Zero to 20
  • Attack speed: 45 to 25 percent
  • Stacks for bonus attack speed: Five to 40
  • Bonus attack speed: 40 percent to 30 percent

Immortal Shieldbow

  • Attack damage: 50 to 55
  • Attack speed: 15 percent to 20 percent

Lord Dominik’s Regards

  • Armor pen: 25 percent to 35 percent

Sustain items

When building sustain, players should be feeling the effects of a real trade-off, usually in the form of damage, according to Riot. The devs feel the trade-offs are more obvious with items that have the more traditional form of sustain, like lifesteal, but not quite with the newest addition to sustain stats, omnivamp. Riot is going through and making similar adjustments to items with omnivamp so that its strength isn’t “overpowering” in the early game.

Goredrinker

  • Thirsting slash heal: 25 percent AD and 12 percent missing health to 25 percent AD and 8 percent missing health

Leeching Leer

  • Omnivamp: 10 percent to five percent
  • Health: 150 to 250

Riftmaker

  • Omnivamp: 15 percent to eight percent
  • Health: 150 to 300
  • Mystic passive: Five percent magic pen to eight AP and two percent omnivamp

Eclipse

  • Every rising moon shield: 150/75 to 180/90
  • Omnivamp: 10 percent to eight percent

Ravenous Hydra

  • Omnivamp: 15 percent to 10 percent

Sterak’s Gage

  • Lifeline shield: 200 to 100
  • Lifeline shield duration: Four seconds to four seconds

Tank items

The devs are addressing some tank item outliers and opening Frozen Heart as a cheaper mana and ability haste item for tank supports, top laners, and junglers.

Force of Nature

  • Absorb bonus movement speed: Six (maximum 30) to eight (maximum 40)

Dead Man’s Plate

  • Health 475 to 400

Frozen Heart

  • Total cost: 2,700 gold to 2,500 gold
  • Combine cost: 800 gold to 600 gold
  • Armor: 80 to 70

Zaun Clash

Sign-ups and team formation for the first Clash of Season 2021 will begin during Patch 11.3 on Monday, Feb. 15. The tournament will officially start in Patch 11.4.

ASURF balance changes

  • ARURF (and URF) now grants 300 ability haste instead of 80 percent CDR. Ability haste you gain from other sources will stack with the URF bonus unlike in previous runs
  • The URF bonus ability haste also applies to Summoner Spells and item actives, similar to how the special CDR did before
  • Bonus mana will now be converted to health at a 40 percent ratio. Bonus mana regen is converted to health regen at a 100 percent ratio
  • Spellthief’s Edge, Steel Shoulderguards, Relic Shield, and Spectral Sickle will be disabled. The gold penalty for killing minions given by these items far exceeds any value you would normally get for building these items, especially when considering that a portion of gold is already shared with minion kills on URF
  • The runes Lethal Tempo and Ultimate Hunter will no longer be disabled

League of Legends Bug fixes and quality of life changes

  • League client: Receiving a game invite will now play a sound if you have another invite pending

If a player would exceed 100 LP, but would fall back below 100 LP after the penalty is applied, they do not promote
  • Fixed a bug where Shyvana’s W – Burnout would not apply the AP ratio for additional movement speed when in her dragon form
  • Fixed a bug where Goredrinker and Ceaseless Hunger’s Mythic Passive would not grant additional 5 ability haste for each Legendary item in the player’s inventory
  • Fixed a bug where an attack empowered by both Sheen and Essence Reaver would not grant mana back from Essence Reaver
  • Items that do damage to enemies can now properly trigger the execute from The Collector
  • The Collector’s execute will now properly trigger on targets with Death’s Dance
