League of Legends has a brand new champion courtesy of the game’s latest patch. While Gwen is the big new addition to Patch 11.8, that’s not the only change league has in stock. The patch also updates Rammus and gives it a new ultimate. It also brings some changes to the item balance.
The special thing about leagueThe latest patch is the newest champion, Gwen, a mysterious doll who has been transformed into a human thanks to the magical mists of Viego, The Ruined King. In Summoner’s Rift, Gwen is an AP bruiser who is not afraid to approach her opponents and double them up. She even has a protective fog ability that keeps her safe from the attacks and abilities of those outside of it.
leagueThe new patch also gives Rammus a much needed update. All of his abilities were slightly balanced, but the biggest change came in his ultimate ability. Rammus’ old Ultimate just wreaked damage around him and slowed nearby enemies. For his new ultimate called Soaring Slam, he flies high in the air and hits a target area. When he lands, Rammus deals damage and slows enemies. Shockwaves remain in its landing zone, continuing the damage and slowing the effect for four seconds.
Finally, this patch also includes some small changes to support-oriented Mythic elements. The most overwhelmed culprit in this category was Moonstone Renewer, who got major nerfs especially in the late game. The Staff of Running Water was also shredded, losing its bonus movement speed in exchange for a (less useful) ability speed.
