Stat Changes
Zyra Health Comparison

Zyra's base health previously (blue) versus Pre-Season 2015 (red)

  • The game now uses a champion's level 1 as their base instead of a level 0 amount.
  • All champions have had their level 1 (base) stats raised by 68% of their per-level, effectively starting the game at level 1.68. This is with the following exceptions:
    • Base attack speed has not been changed.
    • All ranged champions, Kayle, and Jayce have had their level 1 AD reduced by 2 from the old level 0 base AD + 1.68 * AD per level formula.
    • Champions with no scaling magic resistance did not have their base MR increased.
      • Thresh, having no scaling armor, did not gain base armor.
  • The game now refers to "per level" statistics as "growth" statistics, as the amount gained per level is no longer linear. You will gain (65 + (3.5 * level))% of your growth statistic per level, so going from 1 to 2 will gain 72% of your growth statistics and going from 17 to 18 will gain 128%.
  • The amount of Blood Well Blood Well changed to 105-870 (not linear) from 70-840 (linear).
  • The formula for calculating your statistics at any given level is B + x ({7 \over 400} n^2 + {267 \over 400} n - {137 \over 200}) where
    • x = Growth = Old Per Level
    • n= Champion Level
    • B = Base = Old Base + (1.68 \times x).
