Mid-Patch Updates

AUGMENTS

Developer's notes
Part of our competitive focus is disabling our two most high-roll Augments. In a set where the most capped board is a bunch of expensive Dragons, High End Shopping and Level Up provide a significant advantage in accessing this powerful (and justifiably expensive) board. Access to these Augments can allow skilled players to run fully capped Dragon boards by Stage 5, creating advantages over other players that cannot be rivaled by other Augments in the highest echelons of play. We’re temporarily removing these Augments for our most competitive patches, but we’ll be bringing them back with patch 12.22.
High End Shopping has been temporarily removed
Level Up has been temporarily removed

BUG FIXES

Dodgings: Fixed a typo in Jax’s tooltip
Zyra will now pick randomly between rows that are tied, rather than always choosing the farthest row or the nearest row in each fight
Jayce no longer fails to gain his Ability’s resistances if his initial cast completely misses
Shyvana no longer fails to cast with 2+ Attack Range. She can now cast as long as enemies are within her Flame Breath’s range (roughly 4 hexes)
Reverted the Cannoneer bug fix from last patch that allowed the cannon shot to work properly with Celestial Blessing as this created issues with Whispers Cannoneers…yeah.
