Kog’Maw Changes: Void puppy’s attack speed is increased by 3.5 in League of Legends Patch 6.5. It was previously 1.5. Meanwhile, Bio-Arcane Barrage magic damage is now 10/15/20/25/30 when active, but there is no attack speed of 15/20/25/30/35%.

Nautilus’ Riptide: League of Legends Update 6.5 nerfs the damage dealt by tanky sea-dweller Nautilus’ Riptide ability. It is down to 55/85/115/145/175 from 60/95/130/165/200.

Soraka Changes: Starcall now has a mana of 40 and its cooldown time is five seconds. It slows down all enemies rather than only those in the center. Hit an enemy and Saroka will gain Rejuvenation “which restores up to 14-22 (+10% AP) health per second and grants 15% movement speed when not moving toward enemy champions”. Astral Infusion’s heal now heals for 80/110/140/170/200, down from 120/150/180/210/240 and if she casts it while Rejuvenation is active “Soraka will grant her target its benefits for 3/3.5/4/4.5/5 seconds.”

League of Legends update should start to go live in many regions today, while others will get in tomorrow. For more on League of Legends, stay-tuned!
