When  Heimerdinger and his yordle colleagues migrated to Piltover, they embraced science as a way of life, and they immediately made several groundbreaking contributions to the techmaturgical community. What yordles lack in stature, they make up for with industriousness.  Corki, the Daring Bombardier, gained his title by test-piloting one of these contributions - the original design for the Reconnaissance Operations Front-Line Copter, an aerial assault vehicle which has become the backbone of the Bandle City Expeditionary Force (BCEF). Together with his squadron - the Screaming Yipsnakes - Corki soars over Valoran, surveying the landscape and conducting aerial acrobatics for the benefit of onlookers below.

Corki is the most renowned of the Screaming Yipsnakes for remaining cool under fire and exhibiting bravery to the point of madness. Before the League, he served several tours of duty, often volunteering for missions that would take him behind enemy lines, either gathering intelligence or delivering messages through hot zones. He thrived on danger, and enjoyed nothing more than a good dogfight in the morning. More than just an ace pilot, Corki also made several modifications to his copter, outfitting it with an arsenal of weapons which some speculate were more for show than functionality. When open hostilities ceased as part of the agreement surrounding the formation of the League, Corki was forced into a retirement, which he felt cut the engines and clipped the wings. He tried to make do with stunt flying and canyon running, but it was never the same without the refreshing smell of gunpowder streaking through the air around him. When Heimerdinger joined the League of Legends, it was no surprise to see Corki follow soon after, eager to test his mettle against the best the world has to offer.

He is Corki - death from above!

Patch History


R’s ratio up.

Corki buffs when it’s not even Worlds yet? Trinity Force - core on Corki - is seeing a minor rework this patch which removes its critical strike chance. Corki has already been struggling for quite a few patches now, and losing early access to crit would make Corki’s late-game falloff even harsher than it already is, so we’re giving Corki a boost to his late game power in a way that suits his spellcasting pattern.

Missile Barrage.png R - Missile Barrage

RATIO : 0.2/0.5/0.8 total attack damage 0.2/0.6/1.0 total attack damage

Basic attack ratio down.

The go-to midlane staple in pro play, Corki’s damage output is too much for his peers to keep up with at the moment. Corki makes sense as a ‘caster-carry’ at heart, using his gold to fuel a barrage of high-damage abilities for poking enemies or laying on the burst after a package power-play. What doesn’t make sense is the guy with top-shelf spells (and hextech munitions) having above-average basic attacks. We’re cutting back on some of that extraneous power (there it is) to bring him in line without infringing on his spell-slinging identity.

Hextech Munitions.png Passive - Hextech Munitions

RATO ON BASIC ATTACKS : 1.1 total attack damage 1.0 total attack damage

Q damage down. R recharge time up.

Let's be clear - Corki's doing a lot of damage. Too much, in fact. Preseason's magic damage conversion has done wonders for Corki's burst damage, especially on targets without the cash to invest toward significant defensive items. These two changes are slightly related in tuning down Corki's power, but they have two differing goals. On the topic of Phosphorus Bomb: when a spell has high base damage and a lot of additional damage per level, it means that a Corki who gets ahead in levels stays ahead (even without items). For Missile Barrage: its uptime was tuned around a previous season (and itemization), and with Essence Reaver being a core item, we're tapping down those oppressive missiles just a bit.

Phosphorus Bomb.png Q - Phosphorus Bomb

BASE DAMAGE : 80/130/180/230/280 70/115/160/205/250

Missile Barrage.png R - Missile Barrage

AMMO RECHARGE RATE : 12/10/8 seconds 12/11/10 seconds


While Corki's always happened to have the highest magic damage of the marksmen, we finally decided to embrace his hextech obsession, tweaking his basic attack to do both physical and magic damage. If that weren't enough of an itemization headache, Gatling Gun's received a similar treatment and now splits its shred between armor and magic resist. A true multi-threat, Corki's damage demands an answer or he'll burn through the last of your resistances in no time.

On top of his new weapons, Corki's also pushing the boundaries of the word ‘daring', picking up periodic payloads that buff Valkyrie for big teamfight disruption or reckless solo dogfights.


BASE MANA : 305.16 350.16

"Like we mentioned in our Visual Effects developer blog, League is an evolving game and, with each day, we're constantly pushing our own expectations forward. Ultimately this means we can always find opportunities to improve and iterate when we don't think we're hitting today's Clarity Bar(™). Much like our earlier texture work, we decided to do a VFX-modernization pass on a few older champions to tone down their visual noise, particularly in teamfights where they can drown out everything else that's happening. We've got four updates in 5.12, with a few more to come in later patches - at that point we'll take a step back to see how they've been doing and if y'all want more down the way!
The following champions have received updates to their ability visual effects:"



"For a champion with such high burst potential, trade-offs needed to be made to keep Corki's high-power, high-damage lane in line. Increasing Valkyrie's mana cost allows for us to maintain an important lever that presents options to Corki's opponents: either he uses so many spells that he can't escape, or he gets forced to use Valkyrie to escape and gives you some breathing room before beginning his barrage all over again."
  • Valkyrie.png W - Valkyrie
    • COST : 50 mana 100 mana


Phosphorus Bomb travels slower.

"Oh Corki. We've known about your strengths for some time, but we're always careful about balancing you because you're rarely a 'standout' in any particular category (unlike, say, Tristana or Kog'Maw who you know are strong when they're strong). But with power reductions coming for Lucian, we know you're up next on the "very strong, safe marksmen" list in competitive play, so we're taking some cautious steps to keep you in line as well. "
  • Phosphorus Bomb.png Q - Phosphorus Bomb
    • MISSILE SPEED : 1125 1000


  • Valkyrie.jpg W - Valkyrie
    • BUGFIX Fixed a bug where Valkyrie being interrupted would halt Corki's movement but still extend Valkyrie's damage field.

v4.3 Corki players can now see Phosphorus Bomb’s area of effect indicator and Phosphorus Bomb now scales with bonus AD.

“Way back, we added more gameplay to Phosphorous Bomb in the form of a travel time, thereby increasing the difficulty of the skill but not the reward. We’ve added some extra gunpowder to the bomb this patch to rebalance the ability.”

  • PhosphorusBomb.jpg Phosphorus Bomb
    • (NEW) BONUS ATTACK DAMAGE RATIO: +0.5 Bonus Attack Damage Ratio
    • (NEW) CLARITY: Now shows area-of-effect indicator for Corki (previously displayed only for enemies)

Summary: We've increased the cast range and reduced the mana cost of Phosphorus Bomb while adding in a new mechanic to the ability so that bombs are now lobbed before exploding instead of instantly damaging an area. We've also reduced Gatling Gun's mana cost and increased Missile Barrage's total attack damage ratio at later levels.

Context: By adding more gameplay depth to Phosphorous Bomb, we can more effectively balance Corki's abilities, especially his mana costs. Historically, Corki was too dependent on his overpowering early game damage, allowing him to abuse his lane opponents and snowball the game. Now that we've addressed that issue, we have room to make him more competitive in the later parts of the game.

  • Q - Phosphorus Bomb
    • Mana cost reduced to 60 / 70 / 80 / 90 / 100 (from 80 / 90 / 100 / 110 / 120)
    • Now lobs a bomb through the air that explodes at the end location, instead of instantly damaging the area
    • Cast range increased to 825 (from 600)
    • Now additionally grants vision while the missile is in the air
  • E - Gatling Gun
    • Mana cost reduced to 50 at all ranks (from 60 / 65 / 70 / 75 / 80)
  • R - Missile Barrage
    • Total Attack Damage ratio increased to 20 / 30 / 40% (from 20%)


Summary: Corki's base attack speed has been reduced. Missile Barrage's base damage has been reduced at earlier ranks and the cooldown between missile shots has been increased. Additionally, the cooldown between missile shots can no longer be reduced by cooldown reduction, but CDR will still affect how quickly you can gain missile ammo.

Context: Overall, we like the direction we pushed Corki toward with Trinity Force, but currently he's too overwhelming to play against. Here we're reducing excess power in a few areas to put him more in line with other similar spell-based ADCs. Ultimately, Missile Barrage should function as a powerful sustained damage tool rather than a source of burst damage.
