Eye of the Herald

Can no longer be activated during combat with non-minions.

I BLINKED Eye of the Herald now goes on a 3-second cooldown during combat with non-minions


Poacher’s Dirk

Effects like the ones on Poacher’s Dirk, Mejai’s Soulstealer, and Cull are interesting because there’s a clear mini-objective you’re trying to achieve and opponents can change up their decision-making to deny you the payoff. In this case, unfortunately, both the mini-objective and the payoff are too specific for Poacher’s Dirk to be considered in a reasonable number of games. Leaving it in the shop might not harm junglers who know it’s not a great option, but it’s a trap for newer players who haven’t yet learned to skip over it. So, we’re saying goodbye to Poacher’s Dirk.



Dark Harvest

Base damage decreased. Can’t proc off other procs.

BASE DAMAGE 40-80 (lv 1-18)  20-60 (lv 1-18)
PROC MODEL Can no longer proc off other procs (ex. Scorch, Liandry’s Torment) aside from Luden’s Echo, whose effect is built to behave like a separate ability

Mid-Patch 8.23 Balance Updates

These changes shipped partway through last patch and are already live!

BASE DAMAGE 50-80 (lv 1-18)  40-80 (lv 1-18) (overwritten by the new change above)

Nexus Blitz

Nexus Blitz is back for another test run this Snowdown! Stay tuned for more information on when this experimental mode will be available to play.

Non-Summoner’s Rift Modes

The new bounty system broke the old bounty system on maps that didn’t switch over (i.e. maps that weren’t Summoner’s Rift). It’s fixed now!



Extra Champion Interactions

New hotkeys added for champs with additional buttons.

CHAMPION-SPECIFIC INTERACTIONS New hotkeys have been added for champions with extra buttons, like Kindred’s hunt bar and Neeko’s shapeshift bar. These hotkeys won’t do anything for champions without extra actions.
