Singed descended from a long line of Zaun's revered chemists. Even in his youth, his talent for concocting potions far outstripped that of his peers, and he quickly distinguished himself from his less extraordinary chemist compatriots. It came as no surprise to anyone when he was selected for apprenticeship by the infamous Warwick, master apothecary on a lucrative retainer with the Noxian military during their campaign against Ionia. Within Warwick's laboratories, Singed toiled without end, rapidly absorbing every detail of his predecessor's deadly craft. Singed had little concern for the death and destruction that was the fruit of his labors. By the time the curse of lycanthropy descended to claim his master, Singed was poised and eager to make the transition from workhorse to innovator; he was ready to share his genius by bringing a new brand of suffering to the Ionian front. His zeal for progress was unquenchable, and when suitable test subjects proved to be in short supply, the eager chemist was often thought to turn his volatile mixtures on his own flesh.
When the uneasy peace created by the League of Legends settled on the world, Singed journeyed to the one place where he was still able to showcase his beloved craft: the Institute of War. By this time he was barely even a man, his body both ruined and sustained by his ingenious craft. A thousand burns - accidents of shadow and flame - mar his ravaged form, and exposure to such harsh conditions has deadened his nerves, hardened his body, and strengthened his physique, transforming him into a veritable juggernaut. This, combined with a formidable arsenal of deadly concoctions, makes Singed a force to be reckoned with on the Fields of Justice.

Singed now has Magic Resist that scales with level. E's root duration increased when flinging into Mega Adhesive. Now possesses the most powerful laugh in the game.
"5.13's changes to Singed are all about calling attention to a mechanic that's been under-utilized by a majority of players - namely, his Fling + Mega Adhesive combo. Upping the reward for execution this tricky play (and giving him some added defense to help pull it off) should make the veteran Singed players out there feel like they've got another powerful tool to show off their mixologist mastery on the rift.
Don't let us undersell these changes, though. Better defenses and payoff sound great, but laughing while flinging is the biggest buff we've given a champion in the history of League of Legends. Shake well, my friends."
BASE MAGIC RESIST : 30⇒ 32.1
MAGIC RESIST GROWTH STAT : 0⇒ 1.25
E - Fling
ROOT DURATION : 1 second at all ranks⇒ 1/1.25/1.5/1.75/2 seconds
THE MAN WHO LAUGHS : Singed now laughs whenever he flings an enemy
v5.7 E's monster cap wasn't factoring in E's base damage.
"Adding % damage to Fling last patch introduced a bug where the whole ability's damage was capped at 300 vs monsters instead of the %HP portion. Jungle Singed buffs! "
E - Fling
ELBOW GREASE : Fixed a bug where the 300 damage cap to monsters was being applied improperly
"Whether he's shaking up the toplane or stirring up a skirmish, every player knows what happens when you mix it up with an unstoppable Singed. That said, when he finds himself unable to dive into the enemy team's deep end, even the Mad Chemist needs a pick-me-up. This should let him flexibly fling fighters out of the fray when the fight's not in his favor."
E - Fling
DAMAGE : 80/125/170/215/260 (+0.75 ability power) magic damage⇒ 50/65/80/95/110 (+0.75 ability power) + (6/6.5/7/7.5/8% of target's maximum health) magic damage
"It's called "Mega Adhesive," not "Adequate Adhesive." Fling in peace, summoners. "
E - Fling
BUGFIX : Fixed several cases where Flinging an enemy into Mega-Adhesive would not immediately root them
v4.19 STICK 'EM IN THE GOO! ... Also Insanity Potion gives more bonuses at rank 3. And Singed has been updated!
"Our initial context was to say, "Sometimes you just want to buff Singed, man," but then someone read it and said it wasn't very informative. So. Right now we like Singed and how he fits into the game, but thought we could give him some small, exciting buffs to stay interesting. For the "LONG PATCH NOTE" section, we'll reiterate: it's a neutral change, just that we've shifted the mini-stun on landing into the actual throw itself (this came from re-scripting Fling to fix the bug where Singed was occasionally tossing people in the completely wrong direction). Also, Singed has been updated! [out the article] if you want the full story, or below if you just want the specifics. "
Visuals : Updated model and textures for base and all skins
ICONS : New ability icons
SPLASH : New base splash
E - Fling
[NEW]STAY WITH ME : If Singed Flings a target into Mega Adhesive Zone, they will be snared for 1 second
FLIP FLOP : Fixed a bug where Singed would occasionally Fling his targets in completely wrong directions (we believe this is fixed for most cases, let us know if if keeps happening!)
A LONG PATCH NOTE : Singed's arm is stronger, thereby letting him Fling targets higher into the sky for slightly longer durations. In exchange, targets will be able to move immediately after being flung. This is a net neutral change, as we basically took the mini-stun from Fling's landing and put it into duration of the Fling itself.
R - Insanity Potion
Stat enhancement : 35/50/65⇒ 35/50/80 ability power, armor, magic resist, movement speed, health per 5 seconds and mana per 5 seconds
"As we've mentioned previously, the splash art team is engaged in a long-term effort to update our oldest base splashes. A few more are ready to go this patch!"
SPLASH : The following champions have received updated base splashes (click the portraits for the full image!)
Fixed a bug where Fling was dealing more damage than the tooltip values indicated
Singed is intended to be incredibly durable and to gradually burn down his opponents in team fights. By making disables more effective against him and reducing his initial burst damage, Singed’s opponents now have more time and ways to deal with him in these situations.
Insanity Potion now additionally reduces silences and blinds, but no longer allows Singed to walk through persistent slowing fields such as Kog'Maw's Void Ooze when stacked with other disable duraiton reductions (ie: Tenacity)
