Patch History


No longer speeds up allies. Active speed amount and duration increased.

In its current incarnation, Righteous Glory presents us with a few balancing troubles. When it’s too strong, it replaces traditional initiation and warps the environment to be ‘who are the best carriers of Righteous Glory and why aren’t you playing them?’ We’re removing that consideration altogether and really pushing its synergies with individual champions. It’ll be easier than ever for Righteous Glory users to run down fleeing targets, but they'll need more clever coordination than just ‘run as-in-straight-line’ to start off a chaotic brawl.

NEW ETERNITY : UNIQUE Passive - 15% of damage taken from champions is gained as Mana. Spending mana restores 25% of mana spent as Health, up to 25 health per cast (Toggle spells heal for up to 25 per second).
REMOVED ASSEMBLE : Active no longer speeds up allies
ACTIVE HASTE DURATION : 3 seconds 4 seconds
ACTIVE SLOW : 80% 75%
ACTIVE SLOW DURATION : 1 second 2 seconds


TOTAL cost : 2400 gold 2600 gold
BUILD path : Catalyst the Protector + Crystalline Bracer + 750 gold

Costs less, but loses the catalyst passive on upgrade.

Further differentiating between Catalyst’s different build paths while introducing a trade-off for upgrading Righteous Glory as a first item. The lowered cost should make it easier to upgrade when you want it (and supports don’t mind it getting cheaper), but as a first item Righteous Glory be a tough choice between wanting the initiation power or continued laning safety.

TOTAL COST : 2500 gold 2400 gold
REMOVED FOR GLORY : Loses 'Valor's Reward' (catalyst's level-up passive) upon upgrading

Health down, cooldown up.

"Way back in patch 5.5 we bumped the cost efficiency of Righteous Glory up because we wanted to get this item in more games so players could witness its strategic effectiveness. In the process, however, we made Righteous Glory just a little too efficient for pro games that could take full advantage of its core strengths.
For our ambitions (because saying goals every time gets tiring): we still think this item is an effective buy when your team lacks hard engage, but we don't want it to be a default "buy-me-every-day" kind of purchase as it's skewing everything to hard engage. "
  • HEALTH : 600 500
  • COOLDOWN : 60 seconds 90 seconds


"We went a liiiiitttle overboard with this last time, so we're tuning back just a tiny bit. "
  • HEALTH  : 650 600


  • GLORIOUS STRUCTURES : Fixed a bug where you wouldn't get the active movement speed running towards turrets and capture points


"This item is actually very close to a healthy spot. We're just pushing it a little further so getting it earlier in the game improves its synergy with the new Cinderhulk enchantment. "
  • HEALTH : +500 +650

Righteous Glory.png Righteous Glory (NEW) Chase down those pesky disengage comps! Righteous Glory is a new item that gives a lot of health, mana, regeneration, and an active that gives movement speed to its user and allies when moving toward the enemy or enemy turrets. After a few seconds, it sends out a large slowing shockwave.

"We don't have many items that enable teams to capitalize on strategic initiations, which means if a team doesn't have initiation baked into their composition, they're usually in for a frustrating time. Given that one of our big goals this season was to offer strategic opportunities for teams beyond champ select, it seemed natural to create a strong initiation item. This allows teams to react more fluidly against disengage comps while also enabling hard engagement strategies without being forced to bring Malphite along for the ride (not that we have anything against Malphite).
