Exciting new units added to the current traits will let players have more creativity and freedom with carry units.

  • Vayne
    • 3-Cost Unit
    • Traits: Cybernetics and Sniper
    • Ability: Vayne focuses for 10 seconds, tumbling away from her target immediately, and every third attack thereafter. Vayne is invisible while tumbling and her first attack after each tumble deals 180/200/240% of her Attack Damage.
  • Zed
    • 2-Cost Unit
    • Traits: Rebel and Infiltrator
    • Ability: Contempt for the Weak (Passive): Every third attack, Zed deals 20/40/80 bonus magic damage and steals 25/40/80% of the target’s current Attack Damage.
  • Riven
    • 4-Cost Unit
    • Traits: Chrono and Blademaster
    • Ability: Energy Slash: Riven dashes and shields herself for 300/450/900, then slashes forward dealing 100/150/450 magic damage. Every third cast, Riven leaps into the air and launches a wave of energy that deals 400/600/1800 magic damage.

Other Changes

Some important changes to existing mechanics, traits, items and galaxies:

  • Traits
    • Chrono: Buffed 4 and 6, and also added an 8-piece bonus.
    • Dark Star: Now has breakpoints at 2/4/6/8 instead of 3/6/9 and now buffs Dark Star champions off ANY ally’s death, not just other Dark Stars.
    • Mech Pilot: The mech and pilots are all getting a buff but now when the mech dies, the pilots come out damaged.
    • Sniper: Now has breakpoints at 2/4.
    • Vanguard: Now has breakpoints at 2/4/6.
  • Champions
    • Ezreal: Now much more utility-focused and able to cast much sooner, but deals less damage.
    • Syndra: If she kills her target, extra orbs move on to the next target.
    • Jhin: Attack speed now scales with star level.
    • Aurelion Sol: Fighter ships now drain enemies’ mana.
    • Ekko: Casts sooner, and attacks a number of times instead of every enemy once (so, if the enemy team has only a few champions left, he’ll hit them multiple times). He also slows the attacks of enemies he hits.
  • Items
    • Infinity Edge: Now sets the holder’s critical strike chance to 100% (also does less bonus damage).
    • Rapidfire Cannon: Now, in addition to the extra range, your attacks can’t miss.
    • Seraph’s Embrace
      • Replaced by Blue Buff
        • After each spellcast, the holder’s mana is set to 20.
    • Demolitionist’s Charge: Replaced with Battlecast Armor. Grants the wearer the Battlecast trait.
  • Galaxies
    • 3-Cost champ pool expanded from 16 copies to 18 copies of each.
    • Champions now sell back for their full value (Example: 2-star copies of 3-cost champs will sell for 9 gold instead of 5).
    • Neeko’s Help always works now. If there’s nothing left in the pool, Neeko will create a temporary extra champion.

The specific details will be revealed soon!
