League of Legends patch 4.11 notes detailed
Riot Games has posted the change-log for League of Legends patch 4.11. Though there are plenty of changes in the most recent update, the focus for this patch "is to bring some equality back to the jungle," says the developer.
"In the 2014 season, popular junglers have been heavily skewed in favor of high-pressure damage dealing champions like Lee Sin, Pantheon, Kha'Zix, Evelynn, Elise, etc, and it was these dominant picks that knocked most supportive tanky junglers right out of the park. On deeper analysis, we quickly realized the problem was less about buffing tanky junglers to keep up and more that we lacked a strong item path for utility junglers to pick up," Riot explained.
"As a result, patch 4.11 will be introducing one new and one might-as-well-be-new item in the form of Quill Coat and Spirit of the Ancient Golem, both of which should cater heavily to the tanky utility-focused junglers in the game. We also went through and brought a few champions we felt needed additional love up to speed, as well as one mini-renovation for Maokai so that he could feel better about being back in the spotlight."
With the League of Legends World Championships coming up, Riot has also begun looking at high-level competitive changes, like turret modifications and some reductions in dominant champion power. For those hoping to see changes to Lucian, they won't be in this patch. Riot says they are still thinking about "the best approach to take" with him.
So what does patch 4.11 do? Below are some of the highlights of the full patch notes.
