LoL 11.4 Patch Notes – Jungle Changes, Samira Nerfs!

LoL 11.4 Yama Notları - Orman Kampı Güncellemesi

Hello Summoners, today we’re here with LoL 11.4 Patch Notes. Riot just made the move that many of us are waiting for since the release of Samira, she and Jungle camps are heavily nerfed as we mentioned in our LoL Patch 11.4 PBE Notes collection article, and Camille is just been poked by a stick and slightly disturbed by the balancing team. Don’t worry, these aren’t the only changes, Katarina mains are here to pay their respects to you! (While you are in death animation.)

That’s all for our introduction, let’s hop into the LoL 11.4 Patch Notes!


PATCH HIGHLIGHTS

lol 11.4 patch notes, highlights

Champions

LoL 11.4 Patch Notes

Amumu

Base health increased. E base damage increased later.

 Amumu’s always sad, but he’s particularly despondent in Skilled levels of play. We’re giving him more Tantrum damage to make him more mad than sad. 

BASE STATS
  • HEALTH 613 ⇒ 615
E – TANTRUM
  • BASE DAMAGE 75/95/115/135/155 ⇒ 75/100/125/150/175

Braum

R cooldown decreased.

 The pal of the poros is getting more chances to activate his high-agency, high-impact ultimate to help turn the tides of a teamfight. 

R – GLACIAL FISSURE
  • COOLDOWN 140/120/100 seconds ⇒ 120/100/80 seconds

Caitlyn

Base damage growth and attack speed growth increased.

 Caitlyn loves a good chase, but she’s too far behind to be a reasonable counter to shorter-range marksman champions like Kai’Sa and Samira, who are currently running the meta. Reverting some previous nerfs (patch 11.2 and 10.19) to set her back on the trail. 

BASE STATS
  • DAMAGE GROWTH 3.3 ⇒ 3.8
  • ATTACK SPEED GROWTH 3.5% ⇒ 4%

Camille

W cooldown increased.

 Camille’s been sweeping out her enemies top lane in Elite and Pro play, so we’re reducing some of her safety and durability in lane. 

W – TACTICAL SWEEP

COOLDOWN 15/13.5/12/10.5/9 seconds ⇒ 17/15.5/14/12.5/11 seconds


Fiora

Passive mark damage increased.

 The new itemization and changes to fighter items (patch 11.3) left Fiora in a weaker state, so we’re sharpening her blade. 

PASSIVE – DUELIST’S DANCE

MARK DAMAGE 2.5% (+4.5% per 100 AD) ⇒ 3% (+5.5% per 100 AD)


Jinx

Base health increased.

 Jinx is back! Her win rate seemed to go down in higher levels of play, suggesting that the 11.3 base health nerf was skewed too high. 

BASE STATS

HEALTH 550 ⇒ 610


Kai’Sa

Q base damage per missile, maximum single-target damage, and maximum evolved single-target damage decreased.

 No one adapts to new items like Kai’Sa, and this season proved no exception. We’re reducing some of her damage to lower burstiness and make her less daunting in quick trades early on. 

Q – ICATHIAN RAIN
  • BASE DAMAGE PER MISSILE 45/61.25/77.5/93.75/110 ⇒ 40/55/70/85/100
  • MAX SINGLE-TARGET BASE DAMAGE 101.25/137.8125/174.375/210.9375/247.5 ⇒ 90/123.75/157.5/191.25/225
  • MAX EVOLVED SINGLE-TARGET BASE DAMAGE 168.75/229.6875/290.625/351.5625/412.5 ⇒ 150/206.25/262.5/318.75/375

Katarina

R on-hit damage ratio now scales; damage per knife increased.

 After our 11.2 adjustments to make Kraken Slayer work with on-hit damage modifiers, champs like Katarina and Urgot are in need of some tuning. We’ve noticed that players really enjoy playing on-hit builds with these champions, and even if they’re not on-meta, we believe they should be viable. Prior to the Kraken changes, a significant number of Katarina’s and Urgot’s builds were on-hit, but they also had significantly lower win rates in comparison to their traditional build. These changes should bring those builds up to roughly where they were before. 

R – DEATH LOTUS
  • ON-HIT DAMAGE RATIO 25% ⇒ 25/30/35%
  • DAMAGE PER KNIFE 15% bonus AD (+9.9% per 100% total AS) ⇒ 16% bonus AD (+12.8% per 100% total AS)
  • NEW TOOLTIP CLARIFICATION Death Lotus’ tooltip now specifies it applies on-attack effects, in addition to on-hit effects.

Urgot

W on-hit damage effectiveness increased.

 Similar to Katarina, we’re bumping up Urgot’s on-hit builds to feel less bad with Kraken. 


W – PURGE
  • ON-HIT DAMAGE RATIO 50% ⇒ 75%

Lee Sin

Q cooldown decreased.

 Lee’s also been struggling with the new items, and could use some buffs to push him towards his visions of zooming around the map. 

Q – SONIC WAVE
  • COOLDOWN 11/10/9/8/7 seconds ⇒ 10/9/8/7/6 seconds

Renekton

Q non-champion base healing decreased later; enhanced non-champion base healing decreased later.

 Renekton is a strong croc who can propel through lanes with high sustain, so we’re paring some of that down. 

Q – CULL THE MEEK
  • NON-CHAMPION BASE HEALING 3/4.5/6/7.5/9 ⇒ 3/4/5/6/7
  • ENHANCED NON-CHAMPION BASE HEALING 9/13.5/18/22.5/27 ⇒ 9/12/15/18/21

Samira

Passive bonus damage ratio decreased early and now scales. Q damage ratio decreased early and now scales. W duration decreased. E targeting adjusted; dash speed decreased.

 As it stands, our desert rose has consistently been warming the ban bench. Even when technically close to balanced, we believe she has several frustrating attributes that contribute to her high ban rate. We’re tackling this problem by giving her some balance tweaks so that both Samira players and her opponents feel more comfortable having her back in the ring. 

 To do this, we’re reducing the power of her defensive tools and giving opponents more opportunities to play against her in lane. We’re also reducing her all-in potential early game. In exchange, we’re improving her kill potential mid to late game, so that when she does go in, she slays. 

PASSIVE – DAREDEVIL IMPULSE
  • BONUS DAMAGE RATIO 7.5% AD ⇒ 3.5%-10.5% AD (levels 1-18)
Q – FLAIR
  • DAMAGE RATIO 100% AD ⇒ 80/87.5/95/102.5/110% AD
W – BLADE WHIRL
  • DURATION 1 second ⇒ 0.75 seconds
E – WILD RUSH
  • REMOVED ALLY TARGETING Samira no longer dashes through allies
  • NEW EYE ON THE TOWER Samira can now dash through enemy towers, but will target champions over towers
  • DASH SPEED 2050 ⇒ 1600
R – INFERNO TRIGGER
  • COOLDOWN 3 seconds ⇒ 8 seconds

Skarner

Base health and health growth decreased.

 The last of his kind is the top of the jungle. Pulling back a bit of defensive power so Skarner can rest his weary claws. 

BASE STATS
  • HEALTH 601 ⇒ 580
  • HEALTH GROWTH 90 ⇒ 85

Soraka

Q movement speed increased. W base heal increased.

 Another sight for sore eyes, even with our last set of buffs in 11.2. We lend our aid to Soraka. 

Q – STARCALL
  • MOVEMENT SPEED BONUS 15/17.5/20/22.5/25% ⇒ 20/22.5/25/27.5/30%
W – ASTRAL INFUSION
  • BASE HEAL 90/125/160/195/230 ⇒ 100/135/170/205/240

Talon

W cooldown now scales; bonus damage ratio increased.

 Talon has been struggling to get his blades on people, so we’re letting him have some more access to his tools at range. 

W – RAKE
  • COOLDOWN 9 seconds ⇒ 9/8.5/8/7.5/7 seconds
  • BONUS DAMAGE RATIO 40% AD ⇒ 55% AD

Tryndamere

Base damage increased.

 Tryndamere’s been weak in lane, so we’re bringing our furious fellow’s base AD up to help him out. 

BASE STATS
  • DAMAGE 69 ⇒ 72

Varus

W empowered bonus damage based on Q channel time increased.

 We’re giving more incentive for Varus to fully charge his Q in combat. Extra juicy for lethality and crit builds. 

W – BLIGHTED QUIVER
  • EMPOWERED Q BONUS DAMAGE Increased by 0-50% (based on channel time) ⇒ Increased by 0-80% (based on channel time)
  • MAX MISSING HEALTH DAMAGE 9/12/15/18/21% (levels 1/4/7/10/13) ⇒ 10.8/14.4/18/21.6/25.2% (levels 1/4/7/10/13)

VEIGAR

Q cost decreased. R cooldown decreased later.

 Veigar has fallen a little short of other mid laners in 2021. Giving him a boost so he can stand face-to-face with the competition. 


Q – BALEFUL STRIKE
  • COST 40/45/50/55/60 ⇒ 30/35/40/45/50
R – PRIMORDIAL BURST
  • COOLDOWN 120/100/80 seconds ⇒ 120/90/60 seconds

ITEMS

LoL 11.4 Patch Notes

GUINSOO’S RAGEBLADE

 Guinsoo’s has fallen behind crit itemization for a bunch of champions who historically had more choice here. Giving it a slight bump so it can be a more meaningful consideration. 

  • ATTACK SPEED 40% ⇒ 45%

MOONSTONE RENEWER

 Moonstone is crowding out choice and generally overperforming, especially when purchased very early and starts snowballing. We’re reducing some of its early healing power. 

  • STARLIT GRACE ALLY HEAL 70-100 (based on ally’s level) ⇒ 50-100 (based on ally’s level)

Grievous Wounds Items

 While Grievous Wounds are meant to be a reactive purchase, they are performing below expectations. Buffing their stats a bit so that the tradeoff between other Legendary items is less sharp. 

Morellonomicon

  • ABILITY POWER 70 ⇒ 80

Mortal Reminder

  • ATTACK DAMAGE 20 ⇒ 25

Chempunk Chainsword

  • HEALTH 150 ⇒ 250

Mage Items

 We’re changing a couple of the under-purchased mage items so they have more opportunities to shine. Cosmic Drive’s passive is now more accessible, while Everfrost now has a new build path and a few small buffs. 

Cosmic Drive

  • REMOVED SPELLDANCE MOVEMENT SPEED Cosmic Drive no longer grants bonus movement speed when dealing ability damage
  • NEW PUT IT IN COSMIC DRIVE If you have at least 160 ability power, gain 20 ability haste and 10-30 movement speed (based on level)
  • ABILITY HASTE 30 ⇒ 20

Everfrost

  • BUILD PATH Lost Chapter + Blasting Wand + 1250 gold ⇒ Lost Chapter + Blasting Wand + Kindlegem + 450 gold
  • HEALTH 200 ⇒ 250
  • GLACIATE DAMAGE 100 (+30% AP) ⇒ 125 (+25% AP)
  • GLACIATE CAST TIME 0.25 seconds ⇒ 0.15 seconds

Eternal Winter (Ornn Upgrade)

  • HEALTH 300 ⇒ 350
  • GLACIATE DAMAGE 100 (+30% AP) ⇒ 125 (+35% AP)

Jungle Camp Changes

LoL 11.4 Patch Notes

 We’ve seen junglers have a bit more control over games, in large part due to their increased purchasing power early game turning into combat stats, which then accelerates their experience and gold growth. We’re pulling back on their experience and income a bit to compensate. As a result of these changes, we’re holding off on nerfing some borderline OP jungle champions until we see how these changes shake out. 


Gromp

  • EXPERIENCE 135/138.375/145.125/155.25/168.75/182.25 (levels 1/3/4/5/7/9) ⇒ 125/128.125/134.375/143.75/156.25/168.75 (levels 1/3/4/5/7/9)
  • GOLD 105 ⇒ 85

Large Krug

  • EXPERIENCE 37/37.925/39.775/42.55/46.25/49.95 (levels 1/3/4/5/7/9) ⇒ 27/27.675/29.025/31.05/33.75/36.45 (levels 1/3/4/5/7/9)
  • GOLD 42 ⇒ 32

Small Krug

  • EXPERIENCE 18/18.45/19.35/20.7/22.5/24.3 (levels 1/3/4/5/7/9) ⇒ 16/16.4/17.2/18.4/20/21.6 (levels 1/3/4/5/7/9)

Crimson Raptor

  • EXPERIENCE 45/46.125/48.375/51.75/56.25/60.75 (levels 1/3/4/5/7/9) ⇒ 35/35.875/37.625/40.25/43.75/47.25 (levels 1/3/4/5/7/9)
  • GOLD 45 ⇒ 35

Incoming Healing Update

LoL 11.4 Patch Notes

 After seeing the incoming healing tech live for some time, we’ve come to a few conclusions: Incoming healing is very satisfying for the player using it and their allies, but it can hurt clarity around how much health enemies have in tense combat situations. We also found that when combined with shields and grey health, the stacked bars could be a bit confusing. We’re making a few changes this patch to address this, and we’re planning to roll out the tech to more systems in the future (i.e. health potions and Mundo’s ultimate). 

  • Incoming healing only displays for that player and their allies
  • Incoming healing now has a special bar treatment to differentiate it from other health bar effects

In-Game Shop Updates

LoL 11.4 Patch Notes

 More updates so you can wipe out the store and the competition. 

  • You can now drag the corner of the shop to scale the size up and down. Be careful, it’s ticklish!
  • The Quickbuy Panel has gained some additional smarts around trinkets. It will now automatically swap the order of the trinkets depending on the one you have equipped to save you a bit of time.
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements

Clash Build-A-Team

LoL 11.4 Patch Notes

 Alongside the Clash 2021 Season VP track starting in 11.4, you will see the second iteration of our Build-a-Team feature in Clash. This version will allow players to find and request to join teams that are looking for more players to fill out their roster. This should help turn your roster of 3 or 4 players into a 5 person meme dream team to crush the Clash tournament with.
