Patch 11.7 notes

Put on some space tunes, it’s time to groove with friends from the Freljord to the Void!

If you're still in the winter blues, don't you fret—we're cranking up the tunes to take you on an interstellar groove.

First, it's off to the Freljord, where we're getting cozy with a couple of chilly companions (Ashe, Braum, and Lissandra). Then we're heading down to Bandle City to turn down Tristana's Boomer-box and pass the mic to Teemo, because we could all use a taste of terror from time to time. We even made the dreary trek to the Shadow Isles to lift Yorick's spirits—who would've known he's a big fan of soul music?—and give him some love that's been long overdue. Our last pit stop was to bot lane, where we adjusted the knobs on three supports who have been overpowering their peers.

Throw in some item changes and you've got the gist of this patch! Shuffle on over to the Rift, and we'll see ya in the next one.

If space disco isn't your thing, take this portal to TFT patch notes to tune into the Festival of Beasts' lo-fi sci-fi beats!

Patch Highlights

Space Groove Lux, Space Groove Rumble, Space Groove Nasus, Space Groove Nunu & Willump, Space Groove Blitz & Crank, Space Groove Lulu, Space Groove Samira, and Space Groove Lulu Prestige Edition will be available on April 1st, 2021.



Q base damage decreased later. E empowered basic attack bonus damage decreased.

Alistar has been thwacking his enemies (and his bell) in Pro and other levels of play. As one of the top three tank supports at the moment alongside Rell and Thresh, he's able to bring too much beef for his damage and threat potential. We're giving his damage a ding down to make his output more reasonable.

Q - Pulverize

BASE DAMAGE 60/105/150/195/240 60/100/140/180/220

E - Trample

EMPOWERED BASIC ATTACK 35-290 (levels 1-18) bonus magic damage 20-275 (levels 1-18) bonus magic damage


Q cost decreased. E cooldown decreased.

Since his explosive preseason debut, Amumu has slipped back to being a miserable mummy, especially in Skilled and Elite play. We're giving him more access to his spells to let him tear up, this time in happiness and in the jungle.

Q - Bandage Toss

COST 50/55/60/65/70 mana 30/35/40/45/50 mana

E - Tantrum

COOLDOWN 10/9/8/7/6 seconds 9/8/7/6/5 seconds


R cooldown decreased later.

In comparison to her fellow marksmen, Ashe has been feeling left out in the cold. We're lowering the cooldown on her ultimate to let our Warmother make aggressive plays more often.

R - Enchanted Crystal Arrow

COOLDOWN 100/90/80 seconds 100/80/60 seconds


E cooldown decreased. R maximum knock up duration increased later.

With other melee supports icing out our mustached man, Braum's heart needs a warm buff. We're giving Braum more opportunities to jump in to protect his friends (and poros).

E - Unbreakable

COOLDOWN 18/16/14/12/10 seconds 16/14/12/10/8 seconds

R - Glacial Fissure

MAXIMUM KNOCK UP DURATION 1/1.25/1.5 seconds 1/1.5/2 seconds


E bonus movement speed decreased later.

Despite our adjustments in 11.6, Hecarim's still one hecking huge horse and it's clear we undershot the bar. This time, we're targeting a standout frustration: his ability to hoof it across the map, gallop into a gank, and steamroll his targets. To rein him in, we're lowering the cap on his upfront burst and gap-closing potential.

E - Devastating Charge

BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED 25-75% (based on time active) 25-65% (based on time active)


E base damage decreased later.

With Daisy's bugfix in 11.6 and its subsequent boost in damage, everything's been coming up roses for Ivern. We're cutting down his mid-game damage so that when he's able to snowball, his enemies aren't completely rolled over.

E - Triggerseed

BASE DAMAGE 70/95/120/145/170 70/90/110/130/150


R cooldown increased early.

Kai'Sa's strength lies in striking when the iron's hot: dashing to isolated enemies to burst them down, then sidestepping just as quickly. Her ult adds another level of safety, especially early game, so we're targeting its uptime to give opponents a chance to catch her in lane.

R - Killer Instinct

COOLDOWN 110/90/70 seconds 130/100/70 seconds


Q bonus damage ratio increased. E cooldown decreased.

Kindred could use a helping paw, so we're giving this duo a love tap by giving their abilities a little more uptime and a little more oomph.

Q - Dance of Arrows


E - Mounting Dread

COOLDOWN 16/15/14/13/12 seconds 14/13/12/11/10 seconds


Q base damage increased.

Yet another Freljord friend who's been struggling amongst her peers—we're returning some power back to the Iceborn to help her knock her enemies down cold.

Q - Ice Shard

BASE DAMAGE 70/100/130/160/190 80/110/140/170/200


Q isolated enemy damage increased.

Despite our buffs to him in 11.3, Morde is still on the weaker side, namely in his upfront damage and sustain. Giving him more power to obliterate his foes.

Q - Obliterate

ISOLATED ENEMY DAMAGE INCREASE 30/35/40/45/50% 40/45/50/55/60%


E stun duration decreased.

Rell brings strong peel and lockdown power that sets up her team a bit too well. We're taking a swing at the duration of her highly reliable CC to keep her and her allies from constantly and consistently pulling off CC chains.

E - Attract and Repel

STUN DURATION 0.75 seconds 0.5 seconds


Passive bonus attack speed duration increased. E on-hit base damage increased.

Small shroom aficionado gets a sizable buff to remind us what true terror feels like.

Passive - Guerilla Warfare

ELEMENT OF SURPRISE DURATION 3 seconds of bonus attack speed 5 seconds of bonus attack speed

E - Toxic Shot

ON-HIT BASE DAMAGE 10/20/30/40/50 11/22/33/44/55


W base shield decreased later.

Instead of space tunes, Thresh has been belting his sweet tones of misery across Pro and Elite levels of play. Players have been finding the most success around builds that max his lantern second, so we're cranking that down a notch.

W - Dark Passage

BASE SHIELD 60/100/140/180/220 60/90/120/150/180


Base attack damage decreased.

Tristana has rocket jumped to the top of Pro levels of play. We're taking a shot at her early game damage.

Base Stats



Base attack damage decreased.

Equipped with strong early clearing, dueling, and four eternal spirits, Udyr's been running the jungle. We're curbing the damage output across his builds to give peers the chance to start off on the right foot.

Base Stats



Base attack damage growth increased.

If you ordered another underperforming marksman in distress, you're in luck—we've got Varus. Giving him some much-needed power that should help him feel more like a full combo rather than a sad side of fries.

Base Stats



Base attack damage growth increased.

We left Yasuo feeling winded from our nerfs to Immortal Shieldbow in 11.6, so we're partially walking back our adjustment to help him catch his breath.

Base Stats



Marked enemy champions and large monsters now Awaken nearby graves. Mist Walkers now deal damage when they leap to enemies. E cast paradigm updated.

Yorick is usually able to crush his way through average play, but recently, he's fallen behind. In addition to his absence from higher-tier games, he has room for a buff to help him across levels of play, so we're taking a first pass by making his E more satisfying and effective. Coupled with some QoL adjustments, this should help our shepherd feel less wretched, while also evening out his performance in higher levels of play.

E - Mourning Mist

newWAKE ME UP INSIDE (CAN'T WAKE UP) Marked enemy champions and large monsters now continuously Awaken nearby graves (up to the maximum of 4)
newYOU WILL BE MIST Mist Walkers now deal 200% damage when they leap to marked enemy champions and large monsters
updatedCAST PARADIGM Walk into target range to cast If targeting outside of range, E now immediately casts to max range


Essence Reaver

Essence Reaver is overperforming amongst peers in its class, and then some. Essence should still feel like an appropriate buy, but rushing it shouldn't be as efficient as it currently is.
TOTAL COST 2900 gold 2800 gold


Since the changes in 11.4, Everfrost has been ever-present on the Rift. It's cool that players have found interesting ways to utilize all three Mythics, but Everfrost's damage was a little too high for its lockdown power, so we're bringing that down.
GLACIATE DAMAGE 125 (35% AP) 100 (30% AP)
GLACIATE COOLDOWN 20 seconds 30 seconds

Eternal Winter (Ornn Upgrade)

GLACIATE DAMAGE 125 (35% AP) 100 (30% AP)
GLACIATE COOLDOWN 20 seconds 30 seconds

Lord Dominik's Regard

Lord Dominik's Regard has quickly caught on as the go-to second purchase for marksfolk. We're adjusting it so it's no longer a catch-all item, but rather something to be picked up specifically for facing tanky terrors.
COST 2900 gold 3000 gold

Serylda's Grudge

We've gotten over our grudge. Making Serylda's more accessible for assassins.
COST 3400 gold 3200 gold

Trinity Force

Trinity Force went a bit too heavy on attack speed, which cut it off from a larger audience. In turn, we're forcing a new hand of stats (and Mythic passive!) that should make it feel like a real contender for more users.
newANOTHER FOLD Threefold Strike now stacks on towers
MYTHIC PASSIVE 10% attack speed 3 attack damage, 3 movement speed, 3 ability haste

Infinity Force (Ornn Upgrade)


Turbo Chemtank

Turbo Chemtank quickly broke speed limits and our expectations, so we're shifting some power from its zoom to its sloom.

Turbocharged Hexperiment (Ornn Upgrade)

  • Fixed an issue where Kalista's Black Spear was ruinationing her recommended items

Summoner's Rift Ranked Progression

Bugfixes/QoL Changes

  • Fixed an issue where Akali's E - Shuriken Flip tooltip would not update its damage numbers when buying/selling items
  • Fixed a bug where Banshee's Veil's shield would not be affected by item haste, only its icon
  • Fixed Bloodward's item description to correctly display the AD it grants when upgraded from Immortal Shieldbow by Ornn
  • Corrected Blade of the Ruined King's Siphon damage in game to be consistent with the values in the item's tooltip in the client
