Welcome to the Dragonlands Championship patch!
This is going to be a short one since we’re focusing on tightening up power outliers of the meta for the competitive scene, rather than shifting the meta entirely. That being said, we shipped a mid-week update in the 12.20 notes with a few bigger changes you can check out. And if you want more information about the Dragonlands Championship we’ve got you covered here.
Finally, in case you missed our 13 minute update on TFT: Monsters Attack! and more, you can check it out here.
Large, like the Monsters Attack! updates in our Dev Drop!
Cannon shots are supposed to pop out of the barrel, not the bottom.
Last patch we brought down Nomsy’s spell damage to buff her other non-Mage pursuits. With this nerf, we’re happy with where Mage Nomsy is now, but we think our favorite round Dragon (sorry Poggles) could be even more well rounded. Between her Evoker buffs here, and the Cannoneer buffs above, Nomsy should explore all her passions and thrive with a balanced lifestyle.
When Nunu lost his true damage, the poor guy was relegated to being a trait bot for Mirage 8. We’re giving him a hefty buff to make him an exciting 3-cost again, because everyone deserves a second chance. That said, Dragonmancer Nunu is not coming back—once was more than enough. Even if you try Dragonmancer Nunu, he will still get stuck on high Magic Resist tanks (especially Terra).
Our most glowing item balance pass.
In patch 12.20 we made Built Different truly different by making the Augment unstackable. Now that the Augment’s power ceiling is lower, we’re able to add a buff across all tiers.
Small, like the chance Mort is OK with Rammus being announced in our next set.
While she has a low playrate and winrate in the competitive scene, Karma has become a high priority Dragonmancer carry for the rest of us. This light tap should lessen her impact, but to make this nerf even more effective, try spacing out your tanks and carries a bit more.
We’re redeploying our intended Lux buffs that got lost in the cosmos and didn’t make it in patch 12.20.
Patch notes wouldn’t be the same without a change to Xayah. This time we’re buffing her with a focus on helping the underperforming 3-star Xayah, while giving her AD builds (aka I hit no Bows) a nice bump.

We’re allowing Soul Siphon to show up on 2-1 again because players who want to utilize this strategy would prefer to see it this early. Technically, this is a "revert" but the Augment was also bugged to show up on 2-1 on occasion.
While we only have volume controls in our Mobile settings for now, this change will allow us to add more useful settings in the future that can be accessed both on and off the Convergence.
