League of Legends patch 11.8 notes: Gwen added, Rammus updated, nerfs
League of Legends has a brand name brand-new champ thanks to the video game’s most current spot. While Gwen is spot 11.8’s huge brand-new addition, that isn’t the only modification League has in shop. The spot likewise updates Rammus, total with offering him a brand-new supreme, and it brings a couple of balance modifications to products too.
The standout of League’s latest spot is its newest champion, Gwen, a mysterious doll who was turned into a human thanks to the magical mists of Viego, The Ruined King. On Summoner’s Rift, Gwen is an AP bruiser who isn’t afraid to get in close to her opponents and dual them. She even has a protective mist ability that will block her from the attacks and abilities of anyone outside it.
League’s new patch likewise gives Rammus a much-needed update. All of his abilities got slight balance tweaks, but the biggest change came to his Ultimate ability. Rammus’ old Ultimate just did damage around him and slowed enemies nearby. For his new Ultimate, called Soaring Slam, he flies high into the air and slams down onto a targeted area. When he lands, Rammus deals damage and slows enemies, leaving behind shockwaves in his landing zone that continue the damage and slowed effect for four seconds.
Finally, this patch also includes a couple of small modifications to Support-oriented Mythic products. The most overpowered offender in this category was Moonstone Renewer, which got significant nerfs, especially in the late game. Staff of Flowing Water also got nerfed, losing its bonus movement speed in exchange for some (less useful) ability haste.
