    Newest Sona Update
    Here's Fearless with an update on tonight's Sona changes and an up to date changelist for the rework!
    "Hey all!
    More updates for Sona. The main goals here were to address the frustrations with universally increased cooldowns, give Sona more to do in lane and in team fights, while maintaining some high impact play making space.
    Change Highlights:

    Q - Hymn of Valor
    Cooldown reduced to 8 from 10 seconds.
    Bolt Damage reduced to 40/80/120/160/200 from 50/100/150/200/250
    Attack Bonus reduced to 20/30/40/50/60 from 40/50/60/70/80
    Mana cost increases reverted to live values.

    E - Song of Celerity
    Cooldown increased to 12 seconds from 10 seconds
    Bugfix - AP scaling now as the full intended effect. Previously was not increasing ally or self buffs correctly.
    The Q changes should give Sona more windows to fight and feel active in her lane, while E is to preserve the high moments the ability can have now that it's functioning as intended.
    Questions for feedback:
    What mode were you playing in?
    How many games have you played with the Sona Update?
    What was your laning experience like?
    What was your team fight experience like?
    Are there things you would want to do differently in future Sona games?
    What strengths and weakness do you feel Sona has from your play experience?
    How did you feel about the updated Ult particles?
    Full changelist below, as it's been quite a while:
    Passive
    Q Passive does 50% bonus damage (reduced from 100% bonus damage)
    Q - Hymn of Valor
    Cooldown increased to 8 seconds from 7 seconds

    Heals now scale with the target's missing HP +1% healing for each 1% missing health (max 50/90/130/170/210 + (40% AP))
    Mana cost increased to 70/75/80/85/90 from 60/65/70/75/80

    Aura lasts 3 seconds, extended by 0.5 seconds for each ally tagged

    Aura lasts 3 seconds, extended by 0.5 seconds for each ally tagged
    Sona's Movement Speed buff is also extended by 0.5 seconds for each ally tagged
    R
    Initial cast unchanged
    Each rank of ult now increases the power of Sona's auras, as well as the self boost of Song of Celerity

    +2/4/6% Movement Speed for Song of Celerity

    Probably new champ resource

    Context on Vel'Koz changes
    Over on the PBE community, Riot Repertoir has posted a context thread and changelist for the recent PBE changes for Vel'Koz !
    "Hey guys,
    You may or may not have noticed that there are Vel'Koz changes on PBE. I just wanted to pop in and tell you guys our plan for them and a bit about our direction for Vel'Koz on the whole.
    Let's start with what our goals for Vel'Koz generally as a champion. When making Vel'Koz, one of the most important things that had to be true about Vel'Koz is that he fulfills the role of a terrifying laser face melter. On his release, I'd say it's fair to say he felt that way, but his ult often felt like there was something lacking if you actually built the primary mage offensive stat - Ability Power. I definitely understand that Vel'Koz is an effective support, and our changes try to give consideration to the fact that players are finding success playing him as a support. That said, our intention for the character was always that his R would be feared in a similar fashion to an ultimate like Fiddlestick's Crowstorm in that it should be an incredibly meaningful, powerful moment for Vel'Koz and an incredibly dangerous moment for opponents. Given how his R's damage scaled, it had that feeling in the early game, but with a full offensive build, it tended to lose that effect as games went on due to its lower Ability Power ratio. We knew this was likely going to be the case on Vel'Koz's release, but we decided to go forward with his release numbers because we saw him as a challenging character to pick up and play and high base damages on the R would provide a relatively standard experience per cast of the ability. Now that he's been out for a few months, we want to really emphasize that when he buys damage, he yields results via his ultimate, and that's why you'll be seeing the lower bases and higher ratios on his ultimate for now on the PBE.
    Again, I'd like to reiterate that we are aware that support Vel'Koz's damage will take a hit if we go through with these changes, but it is our intention that Vel'Koz's character-defining ultimate scale really well with items to better hit character highs on the ability. If taking the base damage off of a character's ultimate is the only change that moves him out of the support position, then that's probably a sign that numbers were out of whack anyway, since supports are primarily picked for their utility anyway.
    On the note of utility, we are indeed looking at reducing the slow on Vel'Koz's ultimate, but allowing it to stack on targets as well. For those of you that remember the Vel'Koz release teaser, we really want to bring out that feeling of him focusing in on a single target and evaporating him, and we think this change helps to clarify that purpose and achieve that goal without doing a mechanic like ramping damage or something of the sort.
    All other changes on Vel'Koz are aimed at just making various spell effects better match their visuals.
    That's a lot of text though! Here's what we're looking at for PBE stuff to test for now...
    W - Void Rift
    W1 missile width increased to match W2
    R - Lifeform Disintegration Ray
    Range increased to 1550 from 1500
    Base damage reduced to 350/475/600 from 500/700/900
    Ability Power Ratio increased to 1.5 from 0.6
    Slow reduced to 15% from 20%
    Slow now stacks on targets up to 5 times, up from 1
    Hope this helps to clarify things,
    Repertoir "


    Balance Changes
    * Remember *: The PBE is a testing grounds for new, tentative, and sometimes radical changes. The changes you see below may be lacking context or other accompanying changes that didn't make it in - don't freak out! These are not official notes.

    Champions

    Braum
    Concussive Blows ( Passive ) passive trigger damage lowered to 32 (+8 per level ) from 38 (+12 per level )
    Stand Behind Me ( W ) mana cost increased to 50/55/60/65/70 from 30/40/50/60/70
    Glacial Fissure ( R ) his four second slow field's slow duration reduced to .25 seconds from 1.5 seconds
    Glacial Fissure ( R ) knock up time reduced to 1/1.3/1.5 from 1.5 at all ranks
    Glacial Fissure ( R ) slow field amount reduced to 40/50/60% from 60% at all ranks

    Elise
    Base attack range lowered to 500 from 550
    Neurotoxin ( Human Q ) range decreased to 500 from 625***
    [ Context: now targets from hit box to hit box instead of center to center. Pwyff hascommented this makes the range reduction closer to 50 UNITS not 125 UNITS ]
    Cocoon ( Human E ) missile width decreased to 55 from 70
    Rappel ( Spider E ) range decreased to 700 from 925***
    [ Context: now targets from hit box to hit box instead of center to center. Pwyff has commented this makes the range reduction closer to 100 UNITS not 225 UNITS ]
    [ ***Context: Pwyff dropped off additional context on these changes, saying:

    "Quick thing on the Elise changes: they've also been modified to judge distance from edge of hitbox to edge. The TLDR is that some abilities judge distance from the center of the champion (like dead center) and then draw a straight line to the dead center of their target. That's center-to-center distance.

    Hitbox to hitbox takes into account champion size (average is like... 65 units? 60 units?) as it goes right from the edge of the champ hitbox. Basic attack ranges us edge to edge distance.

    So while these range changes seem significant for Elise (they're still significant, don't me wrong), there's accounting for roughly ~100 units that are being added onto this as a result of shifting from center-to-center to edge-to-edge. If it's a Cho'gath it's sort of a weird buff (at least for Q)."
    Update: Pwyff clarified "Pulled some numbers on the Elise changes, going from center-to-center to edge-to-edge hitboxes is roughly +75 range. So the range changes could be considered roughly a 50 range reduction on Q and a 100 range reduction on Rappel.]

    PLEASE READ FIRST: All of this has been stated to be very experimental! They said they are going to start using the PBE for absolutely crazy stuff. I don't see all of this hitting live in the new season, but I could see some of it happening.

    Post from Riot about the new jungle:

    "General
    Pushing to the PBE sometime tonight or tomorrow. Going to throw up a really rough changelist of the subtle stuff. I'm going to take the time to call out more subtle things that are harder to notice and give much less detail about the really obvious stuff.
    These are really rough patch notes and we are highly interested in heavily iterating on a lot of these. For example, I'd love to hear your suggestions for what cool Dragon bonuses could be - and I know we're still heavily iterating on the Jungle.
    I'm going really light on context in this post because this isn't an official patch notes - I just wanted to get a good list of details out there so you guys have some inkling of what's going on when the stuff gets deployed to PBE.
    As usual, if you have questions, feel free to ask but try to keep it in this thread if possible.
    Fountain Regeneration
    Improving feel of regeneration in fountain
    Fountain Regeneration now heals for 25% of the amount healed on live but ticks 4 times as fast.
    Stat Growth Per Level
    Champion base stats and stat growth per level adjusted to help reduce the impact of early level advantages
    Roughly, characters will start the game with an additional 68% of their per level statistic compared to live.
    Each level, characters will gain from 72 to 128% of their per level statistic compared to live, totalling to 1700% of your per level statistic.
    Bounty Changes
    With Stats Growth Per Level changes, early advantages are somewhat diminished - thus removing the unpopular gold rubberbanding mechanic from S4 to compensate for the new system of stats growth
    Kill gold is no longer reduced before 4 minutes.
    Gold gained from Assists now scales from 25% to 50% over the first 210 seconds of the game.
    Death Timers
    Shifting Death Timers to be longer based on level for a larger portion of the game to give a team on the backfoot an uptime advantage
    Death Timers now increase by 2% every 30 seconds starting at 35 minutes, rather than 2% every 60 seconds starting at 25 minutes.
    Towers
    Towers have received some changes to change both tower feel and to simplify the calculus involved in determining your damage to a tower
    Inner Towers have been given some anti-split push / anti-siege potential. Inhibitor Towers have been given more ramp-up to make it easier to defend against single targets
    Towers no longer gain Armor and Magic Resistance over time, but they still gain Attack Damage.
    Tower Armor and Magic Resistance have been normalized to 100.
    Tower HP has been set to the following:
    Outer: 2000 Health
    Inner: 2000 Health
    Inhibitor: 2500 Health
    Nexus: 2000 Health
    Inner Towers have a new mechanic - Shielding:
    Inner Towers have a shield protecting them that regenerates after 60 seconds of not taking damage.
    While the shield holds, nearby champions gain a moderate shield as well.
    Inhibitor Towers have a new mechanic - Beam:
    Inhibitor Towers attack their target continuously, up to 4 times a second.
    Inhibitor Towers slowly ramp their damage from 100% to 260% over the course of 6.5 seconds.
    Inhibitor Towers slowly ignore their targets armor from 40% to 100% over the course of 6.5 seconds.
    Ramp is reset when Inhibitor Towers change targets.
    Base Tower regeneration reduced to 5 hp/5 from 15 hp/5
    Minions
    Simplifying Minion Math as well as removing the ability for resistance penetration to increase wave clear power
    Minions no longer gain Armor and Magic Resistance
    Minions gain increased maximum Health at a rate roughly comparable to the old resistance bonuses such that their effect HP is the same.
    Homefield Advantage
    Wanted to give the defending team an advantage in their base and remove other rubberbanding mechanics
    While a character is in their own base, they receive a movement speed and minor resistance bonus.
    Inhibitor Respawn
    Removing this rubberbanding mechanic as the base buff seems to accomplish the same thing while not dragging the game out artificially
    Inhibitors respawn timers increased to 300 seconds from 240.
    Blue Buff
    Blue Buff, acquired ealy, can lead to some unbreakable siege scenarios. With two buffs, this siege power can extend to 100% uptime. Wanted to reduce the duration on the buff a bit rather than attack the power of it to shorten some extended sieging scenarios
    Blue Buff duration reduced to 120 seconds from 150.
    Red Buff
    Blue buff is incredibly broad in application as it is used to dominate lane and contribute to clearing minions in wave clear, while red buff has some in-combat advantages - we wanted to give red buff some kind of role to play in a siege to give greater rewards to controlling the map before a siege
    Grants you 1% of your maximum Health every 5 seconds.
    Duration reduced to 120 seconds from 150.
    Slow reduced to 5-10% / 8-15% for ranged / melee characters from 5-15% / 8-24%
    Burn damage rescaled to 5-56 damage per second from 10-44 damage
    Burn damage now applies to Towers
    New Powerup: Still Waters
    Adding a pickup to the lanes after 20 minutes to add some incentive to visit this area in the mid and late game, as well as provide some split pushing power
    In the top and bottom lanes, at the entrance to river, a powerup will spawn beginning at 20 minutes and every 3 minutes thereafter.
    This buff confers:
    +50 out of combat movement speed.
    Standing Still for 0.5 seconds grants up to 25% increased vision range and the ability to look over walls.
    Elixirs
    Replacing current Elixirs with Elixirs that serve more divergent strategic powers, especially in the late game
    Elixir of Fortitude and Brilliance have been removed.
    You may only benefit from one elixir at a time.
    Elixirs may only be bought when your champion is level 9 or above.
    Elixir price increased to 400 gold.
    New Elixirs added:
    Elixir of Ruin: Grants Health, +% Tower Damage. Nearby minions gain +% Tower Damage and their movement speed is set to 90% of your own, up to 500.
    Elixir of Iron: Grants Size, Tenacity and Slow resistance. You leave a trail that increases ally movement speed by 10%
    Elixir of Sorcery: Grants AP, MP/5 and bonus true damage when damaging a champion or a tower.
    Elixir of Wrath: Grants AD, 10% physical vamp and scoring a kill or assist will extend the duration of the flask by 30 seconds.
    Baron Nashor
    Attempting to create a greater call to action for the team that has the Baron Nashor buff, rather than passively grind the opponent out
    Health and Regeneration removed (AD and AP boost remain the same)
    Baron Buff additionally grants you Empowered Recall, reducing your recall time to 4 seconds. This also massively heals you and grants you an 8 second movement speed buff once it finishes.
    Baron Buff buffs nearby minions around you significantly, causing them to gain up to 90% your Movement Speed as well as specific bonuses on type:
    Melee Minions: Gain 80% damage reduction from almost all damage types
    Ranged Minions: Gain increased damage and a minor increase in range.
    Siege Minions: Gain massive increases to range - such that they outrange towers. Their attacks are 50% slower but are AoE and deal 4x damage to towers.
    Super Minions: Gains 75% Movement Speed when nearby enemies as well as 25% Attack Speed.
    Dragon
    Dragon bonuses adjusted to be more 'back-loaded' so that a team that opts for a fast pushing strategy versus a team that goes for neutral objective control will spike in power at different times in the game
    Slaying Dragon now grants you a stack of 'Dragonslayer' which grants different permanent bonuses depending on how many Dragons you've slain.
    Stack 1: Increased Regeneration
    Stack 2: Increased AD / AP
    Stack 3: Increased Movement Speed
    Stack 4: Increased Health
    Stack 5: Triples all other bonuses
    Dragon gives 50% reduced XP, compared to live.
    Dragon no longer grants global gold.
    Dragon deals 20% increased damage to units for every Dragon their team has slain.
    Dragon takes 7% reduced damage from units for every Dragon their team has slain.
    Itemization Updates
    Enchantment: Captain's
    Removing overlapping mechanics from Elixir of Ruin and Baron Buff - and most people didn't use Captain's for this purpose anyway
    Minion MS amplification removed.
    Armor and Magic Resistance
    Resistances are inherently reactive buys - and the constraint of Negatron Cloak and Chain Vest makes the act of cleverly reacting to your opponent much much harder than it should be
    All Armor and Magic Resistance items can now be built out of a cloth armor / null magic mantle.
    Recipes, gold costs, stats and build paths have been adjusted to compensate for the above change.
    In effect, there is now no meaningful difference between 'Chain Vest/Negatron Cloak' items vs. 'Cloth Armor/Null Magic Mantle' items as they will all build from the same root.
    Health and Mana Regeneration
    We're swapping from items granting flat HP/5 and MP/5 to increasing a % of your base regeneration + % level regeneration. This allows different characters to benefit from regeneration items differently - as well as allowing these items to more naturally scale as the game goes on.
    Items that grant Health and Mana regeneration now grant either % Base Health Regeneration or % Base Mana Regeneration
    % Base Health / Mana Regeneration take into account your champion's Health and Mana regeneration and any Health and Mana regeneration they gain per level.
    This does not take into account: skills, masteries, runes and other sources other than your champion statistic.
    Example: Your champion has 7 mp/5 at level 1 and 18 mp/5 at level 18. You buy an item that grants +50% Base Mana Regeneration. At level 1, this item will provide an additional +3.5 mp/5 at level 1 and 9 mp/5 at level 18.
    New Items
    Crystalline Bracer
    Recipe: Rejuvenation Bead + Ruby Crystal
    Grants Health and Regeneration.
    Righteous Glory
    Recipe: Catalyst + Crystalline Bracer
    Grants Health, Mana and Regeneration
    Active: Grants +60% MS to you and nearby allies when moving towards enemies for 2 seconds. When this speed boost ends, it emits a shockwave, slowing nearby enemy champions by 80% for one second.
    Warmog's Armor
    Health reduced to 800 from 1000.
    Regeneration triples when out of combat.
    Cost slightly reduced.
    Raptor's Cloak
    Recipe: Rejuvenation Bead + Cloth Armor + Rejuvenation Bead
    Grants bonus movement speed when near turrets or Zzrot Gates.
    **Zz'rot Portal**
    *Recipe: Raptor Cloak + Negatron Cloak*
    Spawns a gate at a location that summons monsters. These monsters proceed down the nearest lane and attack minions and damage towers.
    Edit: Not currently in this build. Also no one spells like that.
    Ohmwrecker
    Recipe: Raptor Cloak + Kindlegem
    Active now boosts the damage of nearby towers by 100% or prevents nearby enemy towers from attacking.
    Stats adjusted to fit the recipe items (Health/Armor/Regen/CDR)
    Jungle
    Jungle is different now. For reasons!
    Reasons that are outlined in the previous PBE post. Don't look at me like that.
    General
    1. Jungle Difficulty and Rewards have been increased
    2. Red and Blue buff timers moved to 2:30
    New Jungle Camp: Scuttle crab
    This neutral objective is intended to add control to the river as a setup for Baron / Dragon or provide protection/enable river ganks in the early game
    Spawns in top and bottom river and patrols the river it is in.
    Is not hostile - tries to run away from enemy champions.
    Grants a speed shrine in the river that provides vision and out of combat movement speed to people who cross it.
    Smite
    Smiting a large monster from one of the monster camps will now grant bonus XP and a monster specific bonus when you kill it - this ensures that the Jungler always potentially benefits more from the Jungle than other roles
    Brambleback (Elder Lizard)
    Restores a large amount of Health.
    Blue Guardian (Ancient Golem)
    Restore a large amount of Mana.
    Krugs (Ancient Golem)
    Grants Gift of Heavy Hands - adding Execute Damage to your attacks.
    Gromp (Large Wraith)
    Grants Gift of the Toadstool - grants Toadstool Armor, poisoning enemies that attack you.
    Raptors (Wraith Camp)
    Grants Gift of the Eagle Eye - grants you a buff that automatically grants you true sight for a short time the next time you are spotted by an enemy ward
    Murkwolf (Wolf Camp)
    Grants Wolf Sentry - A ghostly wolf patrols that quardrant of the jungle for a moderate time. If an enemy champion enters that quadrant of the jungle, it'll run at them and alert you to his position.
    Jungle Itemization
    Jungle itemization has been overhauled - all existing jungle items have been removed.
    Hunter's Machete
    Hunter's Machete now grants 30 magic damage on hit over 2 seconds and grants 8 health and 2 Mana per second while fighting monsters.
    Hunter's Machete can only be bought if you have Smite as a Summoner Spell.
    Upgrades
    Hunter's Machete now upgrades into 4 items that amplify or change your Smite ability - depending on what overarching Jungle Strategy you want to do: Gank, Invade, Fast Clear, or Counterjungle
    Stalker's Blade
    After killing 3 monsters, you can smite enemy champions, dealing a small amount of true damage and reducing their movement speed by 50% for 2 seconds.
    Poacher's Knife
    Upgrade Smite to Quick Smite. Quick Smite has reduced cooldown - has further reduced cooldown when you kill large monsters and grants bonus gold if you use it on the monsters in the enemy jungle.
    Skirmisher's Saber
    Upgrades Smite to Challenging Smite. Challenging Smite can be cast on an enemy champion - doing no true damage but revealing them for a long time and causing your attacks to deal bonus true damage each time you hit him.
    Ranger's Trailblazer
    Upgrades Smite to Desolating Smite - which causes Smite to deal 50% splash damage to other nearby monsters as well as stun them for 1.5 seconds.
    MOAR UPGRADES
    The 4 above items can be enchanted with 4 enchantments that offer bonus statistics so you can customize the item based on what kind of role you want your jungler to transition to
    Enchantment: Warrior
    * Grants AD and Life Steal
    Enchantment: Magus
    * Grants AP and CDR
    Enchantment: Juggernaut
    * Grants Health, CDR and Movement Speed
    Enchantment: Slayer
    * Grants AS, CDR and a stacking AS buff"

    The Sum up:

    Smite is now 60 sec cooldown, big buffs have been changed to spawning at 2:30.

    Smite now grants a small (some don't seem so small) buffs from every camp. Golems = execute buff, wolves = zone enemy detection, wight = poison armor, wraiths = ward detection.

    All new hatchet items, can only be purchased with Smite as a summoner.

    Hatchet builds into 4 different items, then upgraded with a 4 different enchants. Very flexible and it looks like it is designed to support all different jungle types.

    Towers now are more anti-split, anti-siege. Inner turrets have a regenerating shield that also gives defenders shields. Inhib turrets are now shoot lazzzzors.

    New jungle "camp", wandering crab in the river that gives a movement speed buff and vision.

    HP and MP regen normalized to be a percentage of base HP/MP, and flat regen removed.

    Dragon gives a stacking buff (each stack does something different), but each buff increases damage taken from dragon and decreases damage taken by dragon. (For LCS viewers this is probably going to be the most interesting change by far, but I also think it is the most likely to be removed.)

    Baron buff no longer grants HP/MP regen but buffs local minions a ton, probably to make it easier to break sieges.

    New split pushing buff at top and bottom of river that increases move speed and grants vision when not moving.

    Some new and potentially crazy items. (one opens a gate to release an additional wave of minions o.O)

    All new Elixirs (4) with individual effects.

    I think they need to almost add in minion buffing. Something you can buy over time for your minions or temp buffs for say 2-3 waves. Like the flag, except you buff all 3 of your next catty minions for 1k gold or something. Buy them more HP/Attack/Add "5 minutes" to how long the game has been going for them.

    That is what baron buff is doing on the PBE basically.

    I know, but I'm talking about being able to spend gold for it. And for a global minion buff, not just ones you're near.

    I don't know, that is pretty game breaking and also destroys the delicate balance in controlling wave direction.

    This seems like a really, really bad idea in a lot of ways.
