  • Yaga is the property of Opip, first suggested on the EU forums complete with artwork (now EUNE). I ported the suggestion to the NA forums years ago, and it evolved based on NA feedback. I only take credit for correcting/revising the English, and further revisions made based on the feedback posted here.


Malleus Maleficarum - Cosmetic Buff: Yaga is a wielder of old magic, drawing knowledge from her ancient grimoire. Her enemy's magic resistance will increase her damage.

Fated Blunder

Innate: Yaga gains Blunder charges every 60 / 50 / 40 seconds, to a maximum of 3. For every 1% of health missing, Yaga generates blunder 1% quicker to a minimum of 10 seconds per charge. Charges are automatically consumed when Yaga uses her abilities to alter their effects. All charges are lost upon death.

Clumsy Swipe
RANGE: 200-1000
COST: 65 mana

Active: Yaga dashes forward on her broomstick. Upon reaching the end of her path or hitting an enemy champion, Yaga brings her broom down dealing magic damage to enemies in a 250-radius area and reducing their armor by 25% (+3% per 100 AP) for a few seconds.

  • Magic Damage: 60 / 85 / 110 / 135 / 160 (+190% target's MR)
  • Debuff Duration: 3 / 3.5 / 4 / 4.5 / 5

Fated Blunder - Mayday!: If Yaga hits an enemy, her broom goes out of control. Yaga becomes uncontrollable for 1 second while she attempts to land her broom. During this time, Yaga is can activate Clumsy Swipe again.

S.M. Apple Series
RANGE: 650
COST: 60 / 65 / 70 / 75 / 80 mana
COOLDOWN: 14 / 13 / 12 / 11 / 10

Active: Yaga throws a poisoned apple at the enemy, dealing magic damage and stunning them for 1 second. The stun duration is increased upon reaching ability power milestones.

  • Magic Damage: 70 / 105 / 140 / 175 / 210 (+190% target's MR)
  • Total Stun Duration: 1 / 1.5 / 2 / 2.5 / 3

Fated Blunder - Ooops... I did it again!: Yaga throws the wrong apple, instead hurling an XXL Love Apple. The target enemy is charmed instead. Charm causes enemies to move harmlessly toward Yaga.

Blue Rose Special
RANGE: 1000
COST: 60 + 12 per second mana
COOLDOWN: 20 / 18 / 16 / 14 / 12 (on toggle-off)

Toggle: Yaga summons a giant, 100-radius cauldron at the target location that acts as an area of impassible terrain. While bubbling away, allies within 450-units will replenish health and mana equal to a base amount plus 0.8% (+1% per 75 ability power) of their maximum health/mana per second. The cauldron will vanish upon toggle off. If Yaga gets too far away, Blue Rose Special will toggle-off automatically.

  • Base Health/Mana Regen: 7 / 10 / 13 / 16 / 19

Fated Blunder - Grab the cat!: When the cauldron vanishes, it goes out with a bang: dealing magic damage to enemies within 450-units.

  • Detonation Damage: 75 / 120 / 165 / 210 / 255 (+190% target's MR)

Evil Eye

Passive: Yaga's attacks curse the target, slightly increasing the damage they take from all sources for 5 seconds. Stacks 5 times.

  • Damage Increase: 1 / 2 / 3 (+2% per 100 AP)
RANGE: 1200
COST: 100 mana
COOLDOWN: 120 / 100 / 80

Active: Yaga channels for 2 seconds to unleash a curse on her target: turning them into a frog for a few seconds. The effects of polymorph render the target unable to attack or cast abilities, as well as slowing them by 40%. While channeling, Yaga has sight of her target and her target is debuffed (including a visual cue beneath both of them).

  • Duration: 2 / 2.75 / 3.5 (+1 second per 250 AP)

Fated Blunder - Frog you!: If Yaga is disrupted, the curse is instantly unleashed on the source of the disruption instead of her original target.


  • Secondary casts of Clumsy Strike can also trigger Blunder, allowing Yaga to cast the skill three or even four times. If you don't want to use all your Blunder, you have to embrace the 1 second self-stun or aim to miss (as Blunder only applies if she damages an enemy).
  • Blue Rose Special's base mana regeneration covers the upkeep cost starting at rank 3. It would take 60 / 15 / 8.6 seconds for the skill to cover the activation cost, not factoring the percentile bonus.
  • The "too far away" mechanic is shared by Maokai and Anivia, and is approximately 1000-1200 from the center of the ability.


Emptylord Yaga
For regular folk, Bogey Mama’s myth is just an old wives' tale told by mothers to scare their unruly kids. That of an old hag, with the proverbial fancy for young flesh, who roams the sky upon her broomstick granting cursed wishes as she goes (and enjoying the mayhem that ensues). For Yaga however, that’s how her own story began. A young yordle prodigy of the chemistry department of the great Academy of Piltover, an excess of enthusiasm can bring about clumsy disasters.

The irony of fate taught Yaga just that, when the Elixir of Agility item.png Elixir of Agility she had developed started attacking her nervous system. Poisoned beyond remission, her life fading by the day, and as despair took over, that is when Bogey Mama chose to strike. What is a young and smart yordle to do when an infamous fairytale character appears before you with an offer to spare your life? Thus the yordle and the witch sealed a pact. By sharing such a bond Yaga’s life had been saved, and thus began the latest reign of Bogey Mama's title.

Yaga spent the years following as a student of witchcraft: practising the forgotten ways of old magic; granting wishes through curses and philtres; creating loves and sowing fears; bringing fertility; and eternal slumber. Each new pact strengthened her bond her to the old witch's grimoire, source of every Bogey Mama’s power since times immemorial. The same wits that made her a genius chemist made her into a potent witch. And so, fate repeated itself. Reading the wrong chapters far too soon, receiving secrets she could not handle, she completed the succession ritual. The witch's very essence had become her. With the yordle-sized grimoire at her back, the overwhelm young witch sought help of the magical timebomb ticking within her. It was only a few accidents later that the League of Legends offered to help tame the power... and protect Valoran from it.

"What an uncanny habit of tempting fate. Deadly, too."

Emptylord YagaDeath

The book's closed on Yaga.

Taking a look at the champion line up, I can’t help but notice some discrepancy in the fairy tale department. I mean, sure, there are plenty of knights in shining armor, though not quite the Prince Charming type, more the rugged ones. And, yeah, you certainly can find lovely princesses around, but they’re more likely to kick some ass than being damsels in distress. Aren’t they? Makes you wonder then, following these statistics, what should a big bad witch look like? Answering that question, I give you Yaga, the Stray Little Witch.

Yaga, the Stray Little Wich, is to be a polyvalent support character. She is a witch, wielder of the old magic: relying on the ancient knowledge of alchemy and enchantment to face any threat, cursing the enemy and making the ally’s job easier, rather than the raw destructive power of rune magic.

Yaga has an unusually large range of skill that allows her to face many situations, for her innate causes time-based switches in her abilities, allowing both peculiar combos, and psychological warfare.

As another representation of old magic, most of her abilities don't scale in damage: rather the duration or potency of the effect. In addition to her own ability, Yaga's abilities also scale from her enemy's magic resistance as it were bonus ability power.

Patch History

9th July:

  • Fated Blunder and Malleus Maleficarum have been rearranged (blog update).
  • Anuromorphose
    • Specified in the tooltip that the target is aware that they are being targeted. 20th February:
  • Clumsy Strike
    • (+1 second per 100 AP) removed from the duration of the debuff.
    • (+3% per 100 AP) added to the armor reduction.
  • Evil Eye
    • (+1 second per 100 AP) removed from the duration of the debuff.
    • (+2% per 100 AP) added to the damage amplifier.

12th October:

  • Formatting update on the blog.
  • The magic resist scalings on Clumsy Strike, S.M. Apple Series and Blue Rose Special increased to 190% from 100%. This was calculated such that at the start of the game when your opponent has 30 MR, Yaga will deal 30 bonus damage (after mitigation).
  • Blue Rose Special
    • Fixed a typo, now shows 1000 range instead of 400.
    • No longer toggles-off upon being disrupted.

1st September:

  • Clumsy Strike will now only stop on hitting champions.

28th August:

  • Attack range increased to 550 from 500.
  • Movement speed reduced to 310 from 320.

Main revisions:

  • Magic resistance now increases her damage, rather than granting her effective ability power.
  • Clumsy Swipe now shreds armor, instead of magic resistance.
    • Even in the original, reducing their magic resistance was counter logical to how she interacted with their magic resistance.
  • Various changes to scalings to make them more feasible/attainable.
  • Anuromorphose
    • Channel time reduced to 2 seconds from 2.5
    • Range reduced to 1200 from global
    • Cooldown reduced
    • Can no longer target allies
    • No longer makes the target invulnerable (previously, the spells would grant invulnerability to both allied or enemy target). With the release of Lulu Lulu and her Whimsy.png Whimsy, Polymorph already has a precedent which is good to keep.
