System Changes And Items


  • TBC



    Divine Sunderer is currently doing its job a bit too well. Not only is it helping fighters play into tanks, it’s also helping them play better into everyone in general. With this update, we’re looking to shift Sunderer’s power away from shredding tanks and into a comparatively lower damage/higher sustain option for fighters.
    SPELLBLADE DAMAGE (12% melee/9% ranged) of target's maximum health  125% base AD (+(6% melee/3% ranged) of target's maximum health)
    HEAL 50% of premitigation damage (+(6% melee/3% ranged) of target's maximum health)  65% of premitigation damage (+(4.8% melee/2.4% ranged) of target's maximum health) (+100% base AD)
    MYTHIC PASSIVE BONUS FOR LEGENDARY ITEMS 5% armor penetration and 5% magic penetration  3% armor penetration and 3% magic penetration
    UPDATED FORGET ME NOT These same changes will apply to the Ornn Masterwork item, Deicide


    We’re making some updates to the way the passive of Demonic Embrace and Liandry’s Anguish stack when applied by multiple users.
    UPDATED EYES ON ME Passive - Azakana Gaze now stacks when applied by multiple users (however one user cannot refresh another user’s application of the passive)


    UPDATED LITERAL TORMENT Passive - Torment now stacks when applied by multiple users (however one user cannot refresh another user’s application of the passive)


    Assassins are currently doing a balanced amount of damage with lethality items, but the class overall is just a tad weaker than we’d like. We’re taking a non-traditional approach to buffing assassins by adding bonus move speed to their Mythic iItems which should also help discourage bruiser or tank itemizations.
    MYTHIC PASSIVE BONUS FOR LEGENDARY ITEMS 5 Ability haste  5 Ability haste and 5 move speed (same for Ornn Masterwork item, Draktharr's Shadowcarver)


    RANGED DAMAGE PROC 6% max health  3% max health
    MYTHIC PASSIVE BONUS FOR LEGENDARY ITEMS 4% Armor penetration  4% Armor penetration and 5 move speed (same for Ornn Masterwork item, Syzygy)


    MYTHIC PASSIVE BONUS FOR LEGENDARY ITEMS 5 Lethality  5 Lethality and 5 move speed (same for Ornn Masterwork item, Sandshrike’s Claw)
