League of Legends Patch 9.9 notes
Aatrox gets a complete makeover
New Passive makes champion less reliant on others for healing as mutilation has been removed and now passive heals Aatrox for bonus physical damage dealt.
His Q (The Darkin Blade ) has been buffed in both damage and cooldown while W also get a slight CD increase with 25% across all ranks.
Tahm Kench’s Devour changes might hurt you
Riot felt Tahm Kench’s devour too much for a basic ability so they have made some changes so that he will suffer a setback for protecting an ally with his devour.
From now onwards, when Kench will devour an ally, it will ground him and slow down him by 95% same as devouring an enemy champion. Its cooldown is now 20% for all ranks and refunds 50 percent of mana.
Tahm’s E no longer cost 50 mana, and now bonus from his passive has been restricted to 1.5% health increase at all ranks.
There are tons of VFX updates, more champion changes that players should look out read carefully. Players can also see highlights of patch 9.9 notes from the video given below:
