Riot announces changes to the meta in LoL. Introducing two new items, Elderplate and Anathema’s Chains

The developers revealed that the upcoming update could turn the meta upside-down.

As with every patch in League of Legends, a lot changes. While Riot is working on champion balance, it’s also looking at how specific items are performing and whether the current meta is diverse.

From time to time, a new update brings more changes than the previous ones. The creators want to refresh the gameplay this way. According to the latest announcements – a patch of this type will appear soon. There is something to wait for.

Big update and big changes to League of Legends

An article about Tahm Kench’s rework appeared some time ago (Presentation and description of the new skills of Tahm Kench after rework. Changed Q, W, E, R, passive), in addition, Riot announced that new items will be added to the game. All of the changes announced are expected to hit the game in the upcoming update 11.13 on June 23, which can really mess up the meta.

As you can see, the creators do not hide their excitement. Today we know how much and what exactly will change. First of all, we have two new items.

Elderplate is a new item

Elderplate gives a player 400 HP, 50 magic resist, and 10 ability haste. It costs 2900 gold and its ability is unknown at the moment. You can take a look at its building path below.

Players pay attention to the average profitability of the stats offered by an item in terms of its cost, but it is difficult to really judge this until we know the ability it has. What is certain, however, is that it will be intended for defensive-oriented heroes.

Anathema’s Chains kolejnym itemem

  • Cost: 2500
  • Recipe: [Kindlegem + Giant’s Belt + 800g]
  • 650 HP
  • 20 Ability Haste

Active Ability – Vow: Choose a nemesis to build a stack of Vendetta for 60 seconds (90 seconds cooldown).

Vendetta: Take up to 30% reduced damage from your nemesis (1% for each Vendetta stack).

Vengeance: At maximum stacks, your nemesis has 20% reduced Tenacity when he is near you.

Even when you are dead and have a global range, the activated ability can be used. Stacks reset when a new target is selected. You cannot use the ability until 15 seconds after exiting combat with another hero.

In addition, of course, we have some balance changes.
