And here are the tooltips in-game, so far things look like they've been planned:




Also, her Q now has a placeholder indicator for the targets it will bounce from/to:

Kassadin Changes

All of the changes to his stats and abilities were reverted to live values.



  • #41 McGuirkenhiem

    As a previous Miss Fortune main I am delighted with these changes, her old Kit had better early game damage lvls 1-5 but due to mana costs it was difficult to maximise on her early game damage potential. I feel like this update will bring her back into the game.
    Surprised they didnt change her E, this possibly her worst skill it is what makes her so mana hungry, I personally only use this if its the difference between escaping and getting caught. It doesnt dish out much dameage and the slow early game is very underpowered.
    They could easily bring miss fortune up to speed by replacing her E with a better slow like Jinxs skillshot minus the damage, or some sort of gap closer.

    Too bad Riot considers buffing one of my favourite AD carries only after I stopped playing this game completely.

    If you stopped playing why are you on ROG?

  • #40 BanderasSF

    Because I still watch LCS, so I visit LoL-related sites from time to time.

  • #31 Supafly_GLHF

    I still think Vel' Koz should have been a more feminine Void creature.  Battlecast could have sounded more GLaDOS like.

    ***Actual sound file: "My up here"  - opportunity missed


  • #30 Rizver

    About MF.

    carries w/o in-combat mobility\escapes won't be picked often nowadays. those changes will just up her a bit. Will still be a niche adc for aoe comps, as she was before, nothing special.

    Blasphemy! SHE IS GOD!

    It certainly sounded like that to me.

  • #25 Zouave321

    they ruined mf. she now have crâppy early game, ok she has better lategame but not by much, early game power is very important, if you trade a bit of early game power, you need to have a LOT of lategame power. look poppy, monster lategame is meaningless if you have very bad early.

  • #28 haisoon

    I havent tested her yet, but to me it seems like they  very much IMPROVED her. Her ult may seem weaker but with it now applying impure shots, it will be capable of much more damage.

    Also her mana costs were reduced, and impure shots scale on ad.

    I will test her. If she feels weaker to me, then I will come back and say I was wrong. But it looks like she will be much better.

  • #37 n4zArh

    Lower manacost is that much weak?

  • #24 lvl10magikarp

    That voice over is one of the best I believe riot has ever done, got so many goosebumps from it.

  • #29 haisoon

    IKR!. His base skin voice is great. His battlecast is a bit hard to hear the words properly.(but still good as well. Battle cast kogmaw and I will be happy.

  • #22 XiXiS

    I won't count how differs damage right now but I at least like they made in description to show damage.

  • #21 ultrapowerlevel

    Q is huge nerf. Assume I level Q first and my first BF Sword at level 9.

    I have like 150 AD.

    Previously it would be 165+ 123 = 288 dmg.

    Now 165....(1.1 AD of 150). Thats like a 130 dmg nerf.

  • #23 gtjio

    Don't forget that it applies on-hit effects, which means if you have 5 stacks of Impure Shots, that's an additional 30% AD worth of damage, so instead of 110% AD it's more like 140% AD, and that's on a 3s CD. The second target will then take 190% AD, again on a 3s CD. The mana cost was also nearly cut in half, so it makes sense that the early damage went down.

    This change is aimed at making her scale better into late game while making her less of a lane bully

  • #20 ultrapowerlevel

    Miss Fortune is nerfed with those numbers. Her Ult will benefit the rest is nerfed.

    You start with 80 AD assumed.

    At leveling up a bit and 100 AD... you only add 6 damage to your W which should be more imo.

    You need 200 AD to outdo its regular number. This is a huge early game nerf.

    AS on W also nerfed.

    Her Q is also nerfed. At 300 AD you will deal 330 damage. The damage would be 390 with previous version. Q loses damage with levels. Although CDR is reduced and pokes will be quicker... they will be hurt less.

    You deal 50% dmg less, you have 50% lower CD, you have 50% lower manacost. It's just more spammable, thus CAN BE USED TO LASTHIT AND TO POKE.

  • #39 gtjio

    But in compensation, her W scales extremely well into late game (You'll get almost twice as much magic damage), and her ult SHREDS enemy health bars since each bullet will be even stronger now that they apply her W. In fact, after playing around with her, I think they're going to nerf the W magic damage down to maybe 25% instead of 30% because it's way too strong, particularly with her ult. It feels much more devastating now.
