Heimerdinger Homeguard Boots Enchantment Animation

A cute change that came with Heimer's VU was his "running" animation when he's got the buff from the Homeguard Boots enchantment. I forgot to show it off then, so have a good look at it now, it's more than worth it:

Arctic Ops Varus Changes

Varus' Arctic Ops skin got minor changes like a little darker camouflage texture and the protectors in the middle of the bow.

    Great, so Elise is being nerfed more and more until she becomes useless. Meanwhile broken hypercarry junglers like Jax and Yi become even more powerful with Feral Flare. This is absurd. I just can't fathom it. Why continue nerfing a champ who's sitting ever so comfortably at a 43% win rate? You have to go glass cannon on her now to do any damage, so good luck using spider form in teamfights or taking her top lane.

  • #80 gizeemoe

    Yay, +6dmg on my TForce Ezreal Q now!

  • #78 Cowmagic

    Best homeguard animation ever. 

  • #79 daft_inquisitor

    Best avatar pic ever

  • #76 DongsquadAsurA

    that udyr buff for no reason at all

  • #77 RoakOriginal

    yeah.. so popular and overpowered champ in league of dashes... :D

  • #75 tjmachado

    T-they lower Kass's ult mana cost! Although they slightly nerfed the damage, it's more spammable now, although less stackable.

  • #73 dnagemo

    Elise nerfs finally . Hated when she just came into my jungle to kill half of my hp with 1 combo.

  • #71 Thunderlinth

    The only changes(nerfs) elise needed were a scaling coocon and an as % reduction to her w.  Q nerf is quite harsh for the jungle but ok.I guess that i am just a sad panda looking one of my fav champs getting nerfed.

    I preferred the Mana Scaling Kassadin... It was actually interesting... Now that he scales back on AP... He's pretty much the same as on live, just with nerfs and a magic shield instead of a silence.

  • #67 Shalvan

    I feel they completely gutted kassadin here. You hit 1200 mana cost after 4 jumps and you have to wait 12 seconds to be able to jump again. 30% of missing mana is not going to get you to 1200 until very, very late in the game. They took away the mana ratios, the AP ratio on W damage is just shitty (compare to Teemo's 0,3 I believe and he has a long range). What is he supposed to be now? I kinda liked previous set with the mana scalings (though low-damage riftwalk did hurt), right now it's outright bad :/ Right now he doesn't have a good sustained damage from autoattacks, because the scaling is shitty. He doesn't have burst, because they totally gutted it (and nerfed the W proc pretty hard too).

    He just jumps around (a couple times because he can't do it more), slows something, interrupts a channel and does no damage?

  • #66 Rickrosee

    Elise will still be good... it just makes glass cannon spider more appealing now.. 

    a tanky spider makes no sense thematically 

  • #65 wulululu

    what happened to the small changes over multiple patches?

    why does Riot like to drag a champion from tier 1 to trash tier ? what the...

  • #64 jacktheplum

    These Kassadin changes are pretty interesting. I wonder what is damage is like now: is he still instant burst, or multiple bursts over several seconds (like Akali or Diana) or straight-up DPS like Ryze?

  • #59 TibblesEvilCat

    Yi looks to be borderline Op 

  • #62 Rahvin90210

    Nothing has been changed about him.

  • #55 BlaSDX

    Can someone explain the yi change?  What's the difference between "slow effect" and "movement speed reduction"?

  • #56 FlySkyHigh

    It means he's now immune to attack speed slows as well, instead of just movement slows.

  • #60 BestRenektonNA

    It was always like that, it's just a rewording.

  • #61 Rahvin90210

    He has been immune to attack speed slows since 3.13. This seems to just be a tooltip change.
