Runes

Aftershock

Resistances no longer scale with level; now scale with other bonus resistances up to a level-based cap. Damage no longer scales with AD or AP.

Aftershock is taken by a fairly wide variety of champions, especially those with access to hard CC who opt into this rune for a windowed boost of durability. Right now, it looks to be strongest on mages specifically: that extreme durability in combination with high amounts of burst damage mages can provide via Aftershock’s AP ratio leaves little room for opponents to play against Aftershock mages. To combat these cases, we’re specifically targeting Aftershock’s scaling to better hit the same power level for all its users.

BONUS ARMOR 70-120 based on level when immobilizing an enemy champion  70 (+0.5 bonus armor, max 80-150 based on level) when immobilizing an enemy champion
BONUS MAGIC RESISTANCE70-120 based on level when immobilizing an enemy champion  70 (+0.5 bonus magic resistance, max 80-150 based on level) when immobilizing an enemy champion
DAMAGE10-120 based on level (+0.03 maximum health)(+0.15 bonus attack damage)(+0.1 ability power)  10-120 based on level (+0.04 maximum health)

Minor Rune Tuning

We’ve pulled too much power out of runes in general, so we want to give back power in ways that don’t favor a specific role/class too highly. We’re targeting runes that, when tweaked, can better compete with Inspiration’s minor runes, and avoiding sustain runes since they’ve been overperforming in comparison.

Bone Plating
DAMAGE BLOCKED 25-50 based on level  30-60 based on level
Celerity
PASSIVE All movement speed bonuses are 10% more effective  1% movement speed + all movement speed bonuses are 7% more effective
Cheap Shot
DAMAGE 8-40 based on level  10-45 based on level
Conditioning
RESISTANCES AT 10 MINUTES 8 bonus armor and and bonus magic resistance 9 bonus armor and bonus magic resistance
Demolish
TOOLTIP Now shows how much damage the next Demolish empowered basic attack will do
Ghost Poro
NEWI SEE YOU Additionally grants 2 adaptive force when a Ghost Poro spots an enemy (maximum stats are unchanged)
Magical FootwearMagical Footwear has become its own beast that outperforms every other option by a large margin. We’re reining it in a bit so that it still stays viable for many champions, but isn’t so overwhelmingly better that other runes can’t be considered.
SPAWN TIME 10 minutes (-30 seconds per takedown)  12 minutes (-45 seconds per takedown)
Relentless Hunter
OUT-OF-COMBAT MOVEMENT SPEED 8 (+8 per stack)  10 (+9 per stack)
Scorch
DAMAGE 10-30 based on level  15-35 based on level
Ultimate Hunter
ULTIMATE COOLDOWN REDUCTION 5% (+3% per stack), up to 20% at max stacks  5% (+4% per stack), up to 25% at max stacks

Rift Scuttler

Scuttler’s first spawn now happens later in the game

* Right now, there’s a lot of frustration between junglers and laners due to an expectation for the laner to help the jungler secure Rift Scuttler when it first spawns. At 2:00, this tension creates forced, awkward conflict between players who at that point are barely level 2, pushing players to pick junglers and laners that are strong at level 2 and 1, respectively.

By moving the Scuttler’s spawn time later, players will have a bit more time to plan out and assess the game before committing to taking down the Scuttler; they’ll also be less mandated to pick specific champions who are strong at early Scuttle takes.

As a note, this is also not meant to be a meaningful nerf to early game jungle experience. Since Scuttler’s level is based on the average level of the game, it’ll more likely than not be higher-leveled than it was when it spawned at 2:00, meaning it’ll grant more gold and experience when killed.

INITIAL SPAWN TIME 2:00  3:15
