Patch History


Find hidden Cho'Gaths easier.

This will have very little impact when it comes to sweeping wards, but it should be more fun to 'tag' fatty champions hiding in the brush.

SCAN EQUALITY : Also affects Oracle's Alteration

"When the cooldown on the upgraded red trinket was increased, we missed the fact that the middle tier red trinket now had a lower cooldown than the item it upgraded into. We changed the tooltip last patch and we're making the actual change now. "
  • COOLDOWN AT LEVEL 9+ : 60 seconds 75 seconds


We were intending to make this change to match the Oracle's Lens cooldown change from Patch 5.1 but only the tooltip went out (the cooldown is still 60 seconds). We'll fix this next patch!
  • COOLDOWN AT LEVEL 9+ AUTOMATIC UPGRADE : 60 seconds 60 seconds (but the tooltip says 75. We're not crazy, people.)


"Feedback loop.
This is technically a strategic item, but we have nowhere else to put it anyway. "
  • LEGITIMATE BUG : The visual indicator for the area-of-effect of Greater Lens no longer reverts to the smaller indicator for Sweeping Lens after dying and respawning (actual range was unaffected)

A lot of players were relying on the early Warding Totem to protect standard invade paths, which ended up preventing meaningful aggression. We like that invading can be a team strategy, so we're hoping this helps out. Plus, lowering the swap cooldown for trinkets should allow for more flexibility.

  • START COOLDOWN (FOR ALL TRINKETS): 90 seconds ⇒ 120 seconds
