Champion Changes

In Patch 13.8, several champions have undergone changes. Some champions, like Aurelion Sol, Jarvan IV, Kayn, Malphite, and Rakan, have been nerfed. On the other hand, champions like Ezreal, Garen, Janna, Kha’zix, Kog’Maw, Leona, Lillia, Nidalee, and Poppy have received important buffs. For specific details on the value changes for each champion, check out the Patch 13.8 Champion’s Change Log.

Cosmic Drive Item Update

The Cosmic Drive item has been updated in Patch 13.8 to make it easier to use. Previously, the passive ability of the item provided Ability Power. However, this has been moved into the base stats of the item. Additionally, the passive now starts adding stacks with just one instance of damage and continues to do so periodically. To fully stack, the enemy only needs to be hit once again after a delay. These changes aim to prevent a single spell from fully stacking the passive. Here are the updated effects of the Cosmic Drive item:

  • Ability Power: 90 → 100
  • [NEW] Unique Passive – Spelldance: Damaging a champion (excluding damage over time) generates a stack of 2.5% Movement Speed every 1.5 seconds for the next 5 seconds, up to 4 stacks. At 4 stacks, gain an additional 10% Movement Speed. Dealing damage refreshes this effect.

Reporting Changes

One of the Quality of Life improvements in Patch 13.8 is the ability to report a player from your Match History. This change is particularly useful as in-game mutes do not carry over to the post-game screen.

Challenges Visual Rework

The challenges page has been updated to improve visualization and navigation. Challenges are now organized by Capstones and Groups, making it easier to understand and focus on the specific challenges you need to complete to earn that coveted title.
