League of Legends v1.0.0.109
Renekton, the Butcher of the Sands
  • Renekton uses a new resource system called Fury. Renekton gains Fury by attacking or dealing damage with spells. When he has gathered enough Fury, the resource will be expended to empower his skills with bonus effects.
  • Cull the Meek: Renekton swing his blade, dealing damage to nearby enemies and healing for a portion of the life dealt. Fury Bonus: Heal amount raised dramatically.
  • Ruthless Predator: Renekton's next attack swings twice, dealing a portion of his weapon damage, stunning his target briefly and applying on-hits each time. Fury Bonus: Renekton's next attack swings three times, dealing a huge portion of his weapon damage, stunning his target greatly and applying on-hits each time.
  • Slice and Dice: Renekton dashes forward, dealing physical damage to targets along the way. If he hits a target, he can use Dice for a brief period of time for the same effect. Dice Fury Bonus: Renekton deals 50% increased damage and reduces the armor of units hit.
  • Dominus (Ultimate): Renekton empowers himself with dark energy, gaining size and bonus health. He deals periodic damage to enemies around him and rapidly gains Fury.
  • Reign of Anger (Passive): Renekton gains 5 Fury per autoattack. Having sufficient fury empowers Renekton’s abilities with bonus effects, but this drains Fury. Out of combat, Renekton loses 5 Fury per second.

You guys addressed the 4 current OP champs that get banned in every ranked game, but, I think the nerf to panth's stun, the cd nerf to rammus's taunt isn't a big enough change to where they will not be banned in every game.

These are all EXCELLENT changes.

I'm not sure of the Garen "Buff" but hey, anythings good I guess.

Pantheon stun duration will piss alot of people off. He needs other minor nerfs too though.

The Xin Zhao nerf was unexpected. Loss of damage shouldn't hinder him too much though.

The Heimer buffs and changes are just absolutely amazing. I'm impressed.

All in all, a great patch! Good job, Riot!

P.S. Renekton (Rekky, as my GF likes to call him) looks great. Interested to say the least.

Nice patch

I'm curious to see how Caitlyn plays after this patch, I like her design.

Can't wait to see how the Heimerdinger AI changes work out.
