Patch 7.14 Summary

by PsiGuard on July 11, 2017

Hello and welcome to the MOBAFire Patch Summary - 7.14!

This is a pretty intensive patch with a lot of sweeping changes to various champion abilities (you might even call a few of them "minor reworks") as well as updates to several item trees. In addition, this patch heralds the arrival of Kayn, the Shadow Reaper. Be sure to check out more details below!

Dark Star: Singularity runs from 7/14/17 12:00 PT to 7/18/17 04:00 PT and 7/21/17 11:00 PT to 7/25/17 04:00 PT. Play as Dark Star Thresh in a 3v3 match on the Cosmic Ruins, which features a Dark Star Thresh announcer and chilling music.

Check out the full patch notes for details on any changes that interest you.

Several champions received significant ability changes this patch. While not quite in the scope of a full rework, Cho'Gath, Singed, Diana should play quite differently in 7.14. Cho received an update to Vorpal Spikes, making it an autoattack buff for 3 hits that slows enemies and deals %hp damage, though it now has a cooldown. Diana's Moonsilver Blade now grants attack speed after her spellcasts for 3 attacks and restores mana on the third hit. The attack speed value scales with Moonfall's rank.

Singed received even more extensive changes, with a new passive named Noxious Slipstream that grants him a burst of movement speed when he passes near champions. Mega Adhesive now has a grounding effect, preventing enemies from using movement abilities while inside the AoE.

The last two champions we'll talk about are Garen and Taric. Garen received sizable buffs to Perseverance, especially at level 11. He also now gains even more regeneration when he's low on health. Courage also has a new effect where it grants 60% damage reduction and tenacity for the first 0.75 seconds after casting. Taric received a buff to Dazzle's damage alongside a small rework for Starlight's Touch. Rather than having 3 charges at all ranks, Taric can now gain up to 5 charges based on rank, though the ability has a 3 second cooldown now. In addition, Bravado-empowered attacks will instantly grant a charge, giving him better access to in-combat healing if he's able to proc his passive.
