Major Changes

1. Lane Swapping Adjustments

  • Riot is tackling lane swapping by adjusting turret fortification and first turret gold values to discourage this strategy.

2. Ornn Item Upgrades

  • Ornn’s Masterwork items are getting an overhaul, allowing nearly all legendary items to be upgradable with an equivalent value of around 1,000 gold. Unique item names for Ornn will no longer be available.

3. K’Sante Rework

  • K’Sante is undergoing a mini rework to make him less dominant in competitive play. Changes focus on reducing his damage absorption and tweaking his abilities to make him more exploitable.
