We’re doing a revert of the shop odds changes we made back in 14.8 that aimed at reducing the power of 3-cost reroll comps. Those changes, combined with powerful 4 and 5-cost buffs went too far. The odds revert, and a few power adjustments for our overperforming 4-costs over the last few patches should have us in a new meta where reroll, fast 9, and everything in between can live together in harmony. Alongside this change, we’re also giving a little love to the reroll carries that haven’t been able to do much carrying as of late.
Level 7: 20/33/36/10/1% ⇒ 19/30/40/10/1%



Developer's notes
Duelist is one of our more consistent traits, that can be played in several different ways, from reroll to fast 9 and everything in between. We’re lowering its stacking power at 4 and 6, the most common use cases for the trait. This may seem like a light change but at 12 (max) stacks this is a significant nerf.
Even with our recent damage buffs to Exalted 5, the trait is still very hard to field. We’re doubling the XP power to make it more enticing, which should be especially handy with those all 2-costs or 1-costs Exalted line-ups.
Reaper’s getting a nice quality of life (or end of life for your foes) buff to allow the bleed damage to go through in a shorter window. It’s still the same damage, but now it will come a bit more reliably. All in all, this shouldn’t be that big of a buff for Reaper, cause if your Kayn was 2-shotting a squishy unit before in 1 second, 4 Reaper wasn't benefitting him that much anyway.
For a trait that only requires one Emblem, Sniper is just a bit too strong right now.
Trickshot relied a bit too heavily on Xayah’s viability, and with her in a more balanced place, we’re able to give a bit more power back to the trait’s lower breakpoint.

We’re taking a pass on some of the 2-costs that aren’t typically worth itemizing.

Developer's notes
No one is rerolling Yone intentionally, so with our recent Heavenly rework to give less stats to non-Heavenly units, we see a place for the return of reroll Yone—a comp that was very dominant alongside Heavely verticals early in the set.
Soraka Ability damage: 260/390/600% AP ⇒ 260/390/650% AP
Soraka Ability secondary damage: 120/180/290% AP ⇒ 120/180/305% AP
Yone AS: 0.85 ⇒ 0.9


Developer's notes
When’s the last time you saw someone play Kayn as their primary carry? Kayn is our least-played 4-cost right now, and many players have been rightfully vocal about this. We’re giving him and his go-to comps a lot of love this patch, because Kayn and friends really need it.
Annie Mana: 70/140 ⇒ 70/120
Galio Mana: 70/140 ⇒ 70/120
Kayn AD: 75 ⇒ 80


Developer's notes
Right now, much of Hwei’s value is in his ability to paint Champions (and other things…), but the real value of art is in the eye of the beholder…we’re just going to make the AP of the beholder a bit better.
Hwei Ability damage: 180/270/2000% AP ⇒ 195/290/2000% AP
Lissandra Loot chance: 40% ⇒ 45%

Developer's notes
Suspicious Trench Coat is generally too strong, especially when paired with Protector’s Vow, which gives far more frontline than intended. But past your daily Ornn with Vow and Trench Coat, Sylas and Udyr are finding the coat quite fashionable.
Spite isn’t generating as much excitement as some of our other Support items. It’s really hard to use, and the power window it provides is too short. We’re expanding that power window so that its use case is more broad. Basically, whenever Spite pops, it should be a good thing. Lastly, it stacks now, so your Support Sentinels no longer fill you with Spite—just their item slots.
