Final Season Ticket update

  • New content being added:


One of the points discussed was the impact that 3-man parties had on the health of Ranked Matchmaking. After reviewing the data we have gathered, we have found that overall the benefits of a 3-man queue don't outweigh the negatives. Starting in the 3.16 patch, players will no longer be able to 3-man queue in Ranked Conquest. We are also going to be watching how this change affects Ranked Conquest before we make any changes to Ranked Joust.
  • Removed the ability for Parties of Three to queue for Ranked Conquest.


  • Updated a variety of Relic Descriptions to fix inconsistent wording and unit usage.
  • Fixed an issue where the 500G Potions would appear locked even after level 10.


Phantom Relic Phantom

Phantom provided a powerful effect for individual players but when compared to other relics that could impact your team it felt lacking. We are moving it to be more team oriented by letting it affect allies, giving more choices to teams in which relics they want to bring to a fight.

  • Increased cooldown from 140s → 180s.
  • Now also affects all allies within 35 units.

Item Changes

DivineRuin T3 DivineRuin T3 Divine Ruin

Divine Ruin provided a powerful effect but with the heavy cost of an item slot that would affect your final build. This often left players feeling bad for building what should be a powerful counter item. By increasing the Magical Power provided by this item, players now feel better about counter building on mages.

  • Increased Magical Power from 50 → 65.

MagisBlessing T3 Magi's Blessing

Magi's Blessing should be a good option for players who want to build to counter heavy Crowd Control teams but its cost is often restrictive for the protection it provided. By reducing the cost of Magi's Blessing, players should find themselves more likely to build this against the right enemies.

  • Reduced cost from 2350 → 2150.

PythagoremsPiece T3 PythagoremsPiece T3 Pythagorem's Piece

Pythagorem's Piece is a situational item that becomes a powerful choice when your team can make use of the aura. Reducing the cost and shifting more of the power to the aura will better reward players who find these opportunities.

  • Reduced cost from 2600 → 2400.
  • Reduced Magical Power from 70 → 60.
  • Passive Aura Magical Power increased from 20 → 30.
  • Passive Aura Magical Lifesteal increased from 10% → 15%.

SpectralArmor T3 SpectralArmor T3 Spectral Armor

Spectral Armor was often too expensive for Support players to build when compared to items like Breastplate of Valor for cooldown reduction. By reducing the cost, Spectral Armor will have an easier time fitting into Relic oriented build.

  • Reduced cost from 2100 → 1900.

Witchblade T3 Witchblade

Witchblade is meant to be a great tool for slowing down Physical damage dealers but was often not providing enough to be u sed outside of nice scenarios. With an additional 15 Physical Protections, Witchblade will be a more solid anti-physical choice.

  • Increased Physical Protections from 45 → 60.

God Changes

T Arachne Default Icon Arachne

  • General
  • Fixed the spiders on Arachne's web not showing their Mastery color.

T ErLangShen Default Icon Erlang Shen

Pin provides Erlang Shen with a powerful tool in both wave clear and teamfight presence. At 12 seconds, Pin was coming up too often and leaving enemy players feeling disadvantaged through most of the fight. By increasing Pin's cooldown to 16 seconds, players should have an easier time finding gaps in Erlang Shen's utility to properly punish him.

  • Icons ErLangShen A02 Pin
  • Cooldown increased from 12s → 16s.

T Fafnir Default Icon Fafnir

Fafnir has certainly grown into his role as a Guardian since his release. As we have seen more and more of what he is capable of, a few things stand out as being a bit too potent. Endless Greed was often providing too much gold and protections making Fafnir more difficult to defeat than most other Guardians. Additionally, Coerce is too powerful of an ability for objective clear, teamfight damage, and self healing for its cooldown time. By reducing the effectiveness of Endless Greed and Coerce, we expect Fafnir to be in a more reasonable spot.

  • General
  • Fixed an issue where Fafnir's passive glow would persist after death.
  • Icons Fafnir Passive Endless Greed
  • Bonus gold per instance reduced from 4 → 2s.
  • Icons Fafnir A02Icons Fafnir A02 B Coerce
  • Increased cooldown from 13s → 15s.

T HouYi Default Icon Hou Yi

Hou Yu is seeing a power shift this patch to address his performance at the highest end of play while also maintaining his core strengths. Mark of the Golden Crow was often putting a timer on the game, that when reached, allowed Hou Yi to become very difficult to box. We have removed the 25% penetration and reduced the duration of the mark to reduce some of this power, while also opening up a window where Mark would be down allowing for counterplay. To adjust for this change, Ricochet is seeing an increase to its base damage and scaling, allowing it to be more potent when not paired with his Mark. We have also adjusted the bonus damage per Ricochet so that it should closely match its current strength across a variety of Physical Power. We will watch these changes closely to see how it affects both his pro level performance as well as his general usability.

  • Icons HouYi A01 Ricochet
  • Base damage increased from 70/110/150/190/230 → 75/120/165/210/255.
  • Scaling increased from 60% → 65%.
  • Bonus damage per ricochet decreased from 50% → 40%.
  • Icons HouYi A02 Mark of the Golden Crow
  • Removed the bonus 25% penetration provided at Rank 5.
  • This ability now reveals all marked targets at all Ranks.
  • Duration reduced from 15s → 10s.

T Kali Default Icon Kali

  • General
  • Fixed an issue where Trophy Hunter's basic attack swing FX were displaying incorrectly.

T Odin Default Icon Odin

  • General
  • Fixed an issue where Legendary Odin was showing the wrong spears on his Ultimate.

T Sylvanus Default Icon Sylvanus

Sylvanus is a powerful pick when it comes to team utility, but without the ability to apply constant pressure, he has been overshadowed by other Guardian pics. We are looking to increase some of his utility and potency with these changes.

  • Icons Sylvanus A01 Verdant Growth
  • Increased damage from 80/100/120/140/160 → 80/120/160/200/240.
  • Icons Sylvanus A02 Wisps
  • Increased protections given from 5/10/15/20/25 → 10/15/20/25/30.
  • Icons Sylvanus A03 Nature's Grasp
  • Reduced cooldown from 22/21/20/19/18s → 20/19/18/17/16s.

T Tyr Default Icon Tyr

  • General
  • Fixed the “I Like to Juggle” achievement to now require juggling three gods instead of 3 enemies.
