League of Legends patch 9.19 ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

The new patch completes the series of changes that have been introduced to the game in preparation for the League of Legends World Championship. 

Riot has focused on leveling the playing field by neutralising top picks and elevating less likely champions to a better competitive position. As a result, the update is big and filled with changes to several champions. 

Champions 

Aatrox

Thanks to some overzealous nerfing on Riot's part, Aatrox gets back some of the waveclear he lost in patch 9.18.

Akali

Just like Aatrox, Akali has some damage returned to her ultimate, Perfect Execution, following its 9.18 nerf. 

Annie

Her Molten Shield movement speed has increased while its cool down will now scale. This is another follow up to a 9.18 change. 

Ashe

Ashe has the full auto attack reset to Ranger's Focus returned and passive slow has also increased. This makes Ashe a good pick in the early game for running down opponents. 

Blitzcrank

Rocket Grab range has increased by 100, while Static Field passive stacks have been increased to 3.

Fiora

Lunge will now hit turrets and wards but will prioritise champions, ultimate targets and dying minions. Blade work will also now deal bonus damage to turrets. 

Gragas

Thanks to his dominance in the pro meta, Gragas receives a nerf to Drunken Rage's cool down and damage ratio. 

Graves

Receives buffs to attack damage, health, mana and mana regen. These make him a generally more reliable pick. 

Heimerdinger

Evolution Turret and Apex Turret both receive an AP ratio increase. Electron Storm Grenade also gets a boost to stun duration. 

Karma

Karma gets a nerf to non-support damage which will make teams reconsider picking her. It considerably reduces her Inner Flame ability damage to 40% from 60%.

Mordekaiser

The slight buff to Indestructible should make Mordekaiser a great pick during pro matches. Realm of Death spectators are also now more spooky. 

Orianna

Orianna has the ultimate, Command: Shockwave powered up to increase damage output. 

Ornn

The Living Forge passive sees free Masterwork upgrades occur sooner than before. 

Pantheon

The reworked champion receives a nerf to Magic resistance but Shield Vault's empowered damage will now scale through levels 1-18.

Rek'Sai

Auto attacks will now work better, with Rek'Sai gaining an armour buff and Unburrowed now effective on turrets. 

Riven

She gets all patch 9.10 and above changes reset, while also receiving a cooldown increase to Broken Wings and a cooldown decrease to Valour. This should make her a more favourable pick for those new to her. 

Sejuani

Sejuani receives a nerf to her dueling power and mid-game damage. Icebreaker damage ratio has now been flattened. 

Sion

Because of how weak Sion is in skilled play, he receives a buff to Soul Furnace's on-demand base shield which should enhance high-level play. 

Sylas

To prevent Sylas' omnipresent, pro flex status, he receives nerfs to base armour and armour growth. Petricite Burst's passive damage ratio is also adjusted to make sure Sylas doesn't become a definite pick-ban. 

Tahm Kench

Because of how good Tahm Kench is at protecting teammates, he's made more vulnerable by making his grey health heal scale. 

Twisted Fate

He gets an increase to Stacked Deck's attack speed and base damage which buffs him in favourable encounters but still leaves him vulnerable to ranged champions. 

Vayne

Vayne receives even more buffs this patch with an increase to Final Hour's bonus attack damage. This should provide more late-game power. 

Veigar

He gets a buff to Event Horizon's cooldown which should take advantage of his scaling nature and make him more valuable in the late game. 

Xin Zhao

In order to reduce the damage done to Xin Zhao's early game from his last nerfs, he now receives an increase to passive base heal. Three Talon Strike also receives an increase to damage which builds over time. 

Yuumi

To reduce Yuumi's effectiveness in the hands of pros, Prowling Projectile's slow strength is now uniform across all ranks. Its duration has also decreased and no longer decays over time. 

Zac

Zac's bloblets gain more value by restoring more additional health. This should help him scale better into late game. 

Items

A couple of items have had "The" stripped from their names. They are Black Cleaver, Black Spear, Bloodthirster, Dark Seal, Hex Core mk1 and mk2, Light bringer and Obsidian Cleaver. 

Bugfixes

A couple of Bugfixes have been introduced this patch which fixes issues with abilitys and/or ultimate's belonging to Yasuo, Kayle, Rakan, Illaoi, Shyvana and Pantheon. The default key bindings for some pings have also been moved
