League Of Legends – Patch 4.6 Notes

League Of Legends – Patch 4.6 Notes

League of legends patch 4.6 notes are here along with usual breakdown/analysis. Not that big patch, since All-stars 2014 is on the way and you do not want all messy patch. In this patch there is some quality of life changes to Rumble, Gragas and Maokai. Also some slight buffs to Kassadin, Rengar and Twitch. Also this contains the very cool Twitch Visual rework.

 

LoL Patcher

In this patch we’ve fixed a bug responsible for creating errors during the patching process. We’ve also added crash logging to the patcher as another tool to help us discover, track and fix issues going forward.

  • Fixed a bug that sometimes prevented new patches from properly updating game files
  • Players can now submit logs if the patcher crashes

W – Blood Thirst

BUGFIXFixed a bug where the stance effect would sometimes trigger every 2 attacks instead of 3

      Gragas

Now that Gragas is a full-on drunken brawler, he needs a little help in the mid-fight mobility department.

W – Drunken Rage

REMOVEDSELF SLOWGragas’ movement speed is slowed while channeling

E – Body Slam

COOLDOWN16/15/14/13/12 seconds  12 seconds at all ranks

     Kassadin

We’re happy with Kassadin’s direction as a high-mobility mana-fueled void mage, but he’s a little under-equipped for the job. Old Kassadin could survive by blowing up targets (dead targets don’t deal damage), but since the rework put more emphasis on his mobility and close combat, he’s had some problems sticking around the fight. These changes are to give Kass more opportunities and rewards when he Riftwalks into the fray.

    Maokai

This is a fix for a longstanding bug where Maokai’s slow didn’t accurately match his tooltip. We’re giving him the benefit of the error.

Q – Arcane Smash

BUGFIXSlow value now matches tooltip ( 20/25/30/35/40 20/27/34/41/48%)

    Rengar

Following up on our Rengar rework, we’re giving him power back in two areas where we’ve heard your feedback: Savagery and Thrill of the Hunt. Rengar’s rework is currently doing a lot of things successfully, but we agree that kitty needs a little more claw.

Q – Savagery

ATTACK ANIMATION SPEEDIncreased by 40%

Items

Wriggle’s Lantern

We wanted to err on the stronger side with Feral Flare’s release so that players could see exactly what it offered as a carry jungle item. That certainly hasn’t been a problem, as it’s performed extremely well thus far. Too well.

TOTAL COST1650 gold  1800 gold
FERAL FLARE TRANSFORM25 large monster kills  30 large monster kills

Summoner Spells

Heal

The Heal debuff was something we should have left in when we updated the summoner spell. Without the debuff, ther’s no real drawback to bringing multiple Heals to a fight instead of an assortment of spells.

NEWMULTI-HEAL DEBUFFHeal is 50% less effective on allies previously Healed within the past 35 seconds. This debuff only applies when an ally has been healed by the Summoner Spell Heal.

Twisted Treeline, Crystal Scar & Howling Abyss

Hextech Sweeper

The recent update to Twin Shadows made for a lot of design overlap with Hextech Sweeper, so we’re pushing Hextech Sweeper into more of a tanky mine-sweeping direction.

NEWRECIPEFiendish Codex + Kindlegem + 330 gold  Glacial Shroud + Kindlegem + 330 gold
TOTAL COST2000 gold  2130 gold
HEALTH+250 health  +225 health

REMOVEDABILITY POWER+40 ability power
COOLDOWN REDUCTION+20% (unchanged)
ACTIVEStealth detecting mist (unchanged)

Twisted Treeline & Crystal Scar

Blackfire Torch

This change was also spurred by the recent changes to Twin Shadows. Generally speaking, we knew Blackfire Torch needed to be toned down, so when we started seeing piles of additional movement speed on casters, we felt we could step in now.

REMOVEDMOVEMENT SPEED+5% movement speed

Twisted Treeline

Now that we’ve hit the middle of the 2014 season, we were able to safely assess how to update Twisted Treeline to the new game flow mechanics.

INHIBITOR RESPAWN RATE5 minutes  4 minutes
INHIBITOR MECHANICSDestroying an enemy inhibitor only buffs the minions in that lane
JUNGLE REWARDSExperience and gold scaling increased

We also took this opportunity to create more viable jungle routes and to alleviate some early jungling concerns.

Bots

We flipped the switch on a suite of bot improvements at the tail end of the 4.5 patch cycle – you can find the changelist in the Patch 4.5 Notes and head over to the dev blog for the scoop on our goals to make bots more human. This patch is a continuation of those efforts.

  • Bots will now purchase and use Warding trinkets, Sightstone and Sight Wards
    • Wards are placed as bots roam, granting vision of the jungle
    • Wards are used to try to gain vision of enemies in brush when bots are chasing; LESS FACE CHECKING!
  • Bots now have a 50% chance of playing Blue-side in Co-op vs. AI, with players on Purple-side
  • Fixed a bug where bots would stop to cast instant-cast items and spells (e.g. toggling Ashe’s Frost Shot, using a potion)
  • Removed some abuse cases that could be exploited while bots were recalling
