League of Legends Patch 5.9 was launched recently and now Riot Games have provided us with extensive patch notes. Some really interesting changes have been made and we have listed the highlights here.
The champions that have been updated with the latest patch are Ashe, Akali, Annie, Hecarim, Kalista, Morgana, Nasus, Nocturne, Olaf, Renekton, Riven, Ryze, Tristana, Trundle, Xin Zhao and Zed.
In terms of items, changes have been made to Cinderhulk Enchantment and Skirmisher’s Sabre. Among other things, Cinderhulk “now does +100% bonus damage to monsters” but its “Immolate passive no longer increases in damage while in combat.”
As for Skirmisher’s Sabre, it “no longer reduces incoming True Damage from the Challenged target,” but all these additions are removals come alongside other major changes.
In Summoner’s Rift, Dragon’s attack per second has been increased to 0.5 alongside base damage which has been increased to 100. Mark in Howling Abyss “damage now deals 25% of total damage” while “Dash damage now deals 75% of total damage.”
Every season we make Dragon a more difficult encounter and then, at some point in time, he gets old and trivial and nobody’s actually scared of this scaly baddy. It’s that time. We’re just amping up a bit of his early game here. By mid to late, this change should be pretty negligible.
Here’s how they have explained the changes done to Mark/ Dash with the League of Legends Patch 5.9:
We’ve taken 75% of Mark’s damage and put it into Dash so… if you want to execute someone with a snowball, you’re going to have to go on a trip.
