Patch Notes Comments ( - The Wukong Clan)

Yes, I'm still alive. I've been out of sorts for a while with grad-school registration (read: jumping through the hoops instated by a stagnant academia. That I will soon join, probably...). But I am back to give you my (highly theoretical with no practical data whatsoever) comments on the patch that is being released as we speak. I am writing this about half an hour before I have to be at work, so I may just get part posted and finish it later.

As always, remember that this is much less detailed than Elementz's Meta Talks and is just my personal opinion. Keep the comments rolling in, especially when I miss stuff, so we can all glean a better understanding of what these changes mean.

Wukong, the Monkey King

Crushing Blow: Wukong swings his mighty staff with incredible speed, crushing his opponent. This attack deals additional physical damage and reduces the enemy's armor for a short duration.
Decoy: Wukong utilizes his cleverness to trick his foes. He becomes stealthed for 1.5 seconds and leaves an uncontrollable decoy behind that will deal Magic Damage to enemies near it after 1.5 seconds.
Nimbus Strike: Wukong dashes on a cloud toward a target enemy and sends out images to attack up to 2 additional enemies near his target, dealing physical damage to each enemy struck.
Cyclone (Ultimate): Wukong's staff grows outward and he spins it around, dealing damage and knocking up enemies. Wukong gains movement speed over the duration of the spell.
Stone Skin (Passive): Wukong's armor and magic resistance are increased for each nearby enemy champion.

- Yaah, more tanky DPS...


Damage reduced to 85/125/165/205/245 from 90/130/170/210/250
Ability power ratio reduced to .7 from .75
Damage reduced to 80/130/180/230/280 from 85/135/185/235/285
Ability power ratio reduced to .75 from .8

-Pretty decent Annie nerfs. But it was about time, even though I am personally a little sad because she's my best toon. At least they didn't run her into the ground like many of their nerf-stick recipients.
-EDIT: Yeah, they're very small nerfs. But she wasn't OP, so that's all that was needed.


Miasma now gives persistent vision in the area where cast

-Not that big of a deal, but nice nonetheless. Even less excuse to facecheck those bushes.


Phosphorus Bomb
No longer blinds
Damage reduced to 70/120/170/220/270 from 80/130/180/230/280
Gatling Gun attack damage ratio reduced to 20% from 25%
Missile Barrage: Big One bonus damage reduced to 50% from 60%

-Doubleyew Tee Eff?!? GINORMOUS Corki nerfs. Q doesn't blind anymore? So, basically you use it in the lane then it becomes your bush-check button? 20% GG damage scaling nerf? And an ult nerf just to kick him while he's down? Poorly played, Riot. Very poorly played. Corki will be seeing much less usage. He was strong, don't get me wrong. But this is too much...


Fixed a bug where Mystic Shot did not interact with spell shields

-Aaaaand he's still worthless. Please try again.


Base health increased to 520 from 495
Base armor increased to 20.5 from 16
Armor per level reduced to 3.5 from 4
Resolute Smite

Heal increased to 25/40/55/70/85 from 20/32/44/56/68
Idol of Durand damage reduction while channeling increased to 50% from 30%

-Nice, needed buffs. Maybe he'll be usable again. I sure hope so, cause he's lots of fun.


Parrrley gold bonus reduced to 4/5/6/7/8 from 4/6/8/10/12
Raise Morale
Active attack damage bonus reduced to 14/22/30/38/46 from 20/28/36/44/52
Active movement speed bonus reduced to 10/14/18/22/26% from 14/18/22/26/30%

-Good nerfs. He was a little stupid.


New models and textures for Janna and Tempest Janna
All new animations for her and her skins!

-Meh. Doesn't effect gameplay. Maybe she's a little hotter now, though. Wait, did I say that out loud? Er...I mean...YES I'M AWESOME!


Leap Strike
Attack damage ratio increased to 1.0 from 0.7
Base damage reduced to 35/60/85/110/135 from 50/75/100/125/150

-Making him scale better. Jax is already a monster in solo que if he gets some items, and this will make him even more so. I doubt he'll ever be very viable in draft mode, however.
-EDIT: Ah, I got trolled by Riot, 'cause I don't play Jax. Apparently this was just a revert back to last patch with a little damage decrease.


New model and animations!
Community contest "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" /dance animation
Attack damage per level reduced to 2.5 from 3

Ability power ratio reduced to .35 from .5

-I like her reworks. Too many of them to make much of a judgment until I see her in play, though. But it looks like she'll be pretty fun.


Sap Magic can now be cast while silenced



Command: Dissonance
Ability power ratio reduced to .5 from .6
Movement speed slow and boost reduced to 20/25/30/35/40% from 25/30/35/40/45%

-Good nerfs. She'll still be annoying as crap in a lane, however.


Grand Skyfall now has a range of 5500

-Nerf all teh globals!


Ravenous Flock now prioritizes champions

-Great buff. I'll have to start playing him again. Most annoying thing was running into a teamfight with your Ult on and watching your crows pwn those purple caster minions...


Fixed a bug where Move Quick did not proc on-spell cast effects such as Sheen

-Who really cares?


New model and animations!
Tryndamere has been working out and is now approximately 20% bigger
Tryndamere now uses Fury, gaining 5 per hit, 10 per crit, and 10 extra per kill.
Fury decays at 5 Fury per second after being out of combat for 10 seconds.
Passively adds 5-20/10-30/15-40/20-50/25-60 Attack Damage depending on how wounded Tryndamere is
Consumes all Fury to heal Tryndamere for 30-80/40-135/50-190/60-245/70-300 depending on how much Fury was consumed
Cooldown adjusted to 12 seconds from 12/11/10/9/8 seconds

Scaling adjusted to 1.0 bonus Attack Damage from 0.5 total Attack Damage (still scales with AP)
Now deals physical damage instead of magic damage
Battle Fury now grants up to 35% Critical Chance, depending on how full his Fury bar is

-Another big rework. Hopefully will make Trynd less of hell to play early. Again, need to see it in action before making much of a judgment. Glad they're implementing the rage system more.

Twisted Fate

Gate now has a range of 5500

-ALL TEH GLOBALZ!!! This'll take TF down a notch, but he'll still be a decently strong pick, imo.


Tiger Stance Attack Damage ratio reduced to 1.5 from 1.7
Fixed a bug where turtle stance was healing off of the damage dealt by Madred's Razor.

-Slight nerf. I LOATHE playing Udyr, so I don't know how much of a difference this will make. Anybody got more insight?


Fixed a bug where Silver Bolts would go through Blind effects.

-Very slight nerf, won't make a difference.


Base armor of ghouls reduced to 10 from 20
Omen of Death damage percent reduced to 45/60/75% from 50/75/100%
Omen of Pestilence now scales off of ability power at a 1.0 ratio instead of a .8 bonus attack damage ratio
Omen of Famine
Heals for 40% of the damage dealt, down from 50%
Range reduced to 550 from 650

-Thank God, good nerfs. I never believed he was as OP as people were making him out to be, but he was extremely strong. Maybe I just never went against a good one, I'm not sure.


Zhonya's Hourglass combine cost reduced to 800 from 1000

-Yaah! Makes me a happy AP fan...although, tbh, I rarely get this unless I'm fed to hell anyway. Rabadabadoodle's is expensive enough...

Randuin's Omen and Shurelya's Reverie will now grant assists

-As they should!

Worthless comments, just when I read "Pretty decent nerfs. BUT IT WAS ABOUT TIME" I already knew this kid was gonna complain about everything, and I wasn't wrong

Imo the patch is very good

And your comment wasn't worthless at all, your wisdom has enlightened us all. You sir, are a fucking genius.

EDIT: I agree with most of your comments.

Here comes my swain again.


Tuesday, July 26th 2011, 8:55am

I like the patch but I can't really agree with the damage reduction on corki Q, wtf?
The skill sucks late game anyways and now u made it FUCKING WORTHLESS in late game.
The ONLY use of that skill in late game was to disable a heavy auto attack champion from doing damage during a short period of time and now u nerf it? Im speechless.
The nerf on Gattling gun was also pretty stupid imo.
The broken thing about the skill is the armor shred, not the damage, LOL.
And lastly the "R" nerf: I guess this was needed I dunno I don't feel like it did OP damage but it is a spamable spell so yeah pretty good nerf and now I hope that less people will play manamune Corki, cause that build sucks and makes no sense imo.
Yorick overnerfed back to under powered again I guess?
Alright that's it for me cya / HavocX
Akali OP l0l

"And your comment wasn't worthless at all"

But it's not really hard to tell, that these 'comments' are hardly insightful.
Like always.

They're not supposed to be, they're just reflecting an opinion, no one has to agree or even pay attention to them.

Haters gonna hate


Tuesday, July 26th 2011, 9:37am

Missed the most important patch note.




Tuesday, July 26th 2011, 10:13am

Lol, he thought that the Jax change was a buff. It just put his scaling back to how it was a patch ago, and nerfed the base damage.


Tuesday, July 26th 2011, 10:42am


Parrrley gold bonus reduced to 4/5/6/7/8 from 4/6/8/10/12
Raise Morale
Active attack damage bonus reduced to 14/22/30/38/46 from 20/28/36/44/52
Active movement speed bonus reduced to 10/14/18/22/26% from 14/18/22/26/30%

-Good nerfs. He was a little stupid.

... oh dear god, anyone who thinks gp was/is overpowered is just plains stupid. lets see, before he got the slow people were calling him the worst champion in the game, it was him and udyr i remember either elementz or saint talking about the worst champions on stream and whichever one it was said gp and udyr, not sure on the udyr part but im pretty sure it was him. anyway back to the point, his slow is 24% and his parrrley has always procced red so whats the big fucking deal? a 25% stacking slow takes a champion from being underpowered, worst champion in the game, trash tier to op as shit?

dont say its because he can jungle because saint jungled on him before the buff at dreamhack. he could eat out of stuns before and could and could hit hefty amounts before along with having a healing reduction.

however suddenly a bunch of idiots decide he's not a piece of shit and because its so sudden, riot is listening and i guarantee he will continue to be nerfed until he either falls off then pops up again like he has this time or the stupid people like you start to realise barely anything has changed.


Tuesday, July 26th 2011, 10:50am

Yeah 5 damage from 2 skills (10 in total) + 5 damage less every 100 ap from these skills is DECENT nerf for annie
