Context & Notes

1) Make sure to check out Meddler's quick gameplay thoughts for October 10th, including the below info on 8.21 item/rune changes testing:
"Some small item/rune changes in 8.21
We’ve got some small adjustments to a few items in 8.21, bit of context:

  • Essence Reaver - Cutting 200g off the cost as short term help. Might have something larger for it later in the year, want to make it a better regardless now though.
  • Edge of Night - Cost reduction by 200g as well. No current plans for changing its functionality, think we’ve definitely got it overpriced though.
  • Time Warp Tonic - We’re looking at different possible ways to nerf TWT, given the amount of health/mana restoration it’s offering is excessive. Current version in testing is a change where instead of offering increased duration and MS during the duration it instead gives some restoration up front, doesn’t change duration at all and still gives the movement speed."
2) Here's Meddler with a changelist for Kai'Sa later this cycle!
"We're still working on nailing down details there. What should be in for testing today:
Passive damage - 10% Missing HP (+27.5-110% AP based on target % missing health) instead of 15% + (3.75% per 100AP) Missing HP
Q Mana - 67 down to 55, instead of just a flat 55"
3) Here's Riot Orphyre with a bugs and feedback thread for the Tales from the Rift chroma this cycle:
