NamiSquare Nami
Nami's ultimate was being outclassed by those of other supports, such as support EzrealSquare Ezreal and AsheSquare Ashe, so we've brought it to the same power level.
PantheonSquare Mantheon
Pantheon hasn't been seeing a lot of recent play, and is generally unable to apply any lane pressure, so we've buffed his ult a little and renamed him to reflect the changes.

  • General

    • If the summoner breaks an item connected to their computer, the effects of Undying Rage are permanent, even after the match is finished.
Twisted FateSquare Twisted Fate
The changes to Twisted Fate have made him unpopular. He's still powerful, but the problem stems from the fact that players find him boring and too predictable. We've re-enabled and added in some new RNG elements to give players that "lucky draw" feeling.
  • Stats
    • Base attack damage changed to 43 + 1d6 from 46.41.

Vel'KozSquare Vel'Koz
We feel that Vel'Koz is in a good gameplay spot, but feels thematically flat. We've introduced a minor change that should really give players a feel of his archetype.
  • General
    • Gains +100% penetration against female champions and EzrealSquare Ezreal .
    • All female champions have received new lines exclusive to receiving a critical hit from Vel'Koz. Here are a few examples:

    • Now uses primary resource "Time".

Items

Ohmwrecker item Ohmwrecker

  • Still exists. We just thought you needed to know.

After a great deal of thinking, we realized that this still beats every other support item in the long run. We've decided to drop the pretense and make it as powerful as we want it to be.

General

Crowd control

  • Knockups are now reduced by Tenacity and other forms of crowd control reduction.

Mana regeneration

We needed a way to make manaless champion even better in the current meta and this seem like the best way achieve our goal as it opens new build paths that were normally discarded because of the existence of mana regeneration.
  • Any excess mana regeneration that is not being used will now be converted to health regeneration for the champion.

Undocumented changes
