Major Changes to Irelia, Lilia and Tahm Kench in LoL Patch 11.14

Irelia is going through some major changes to take away some of her early game power and thus snowball potential in pro play. Bladesurge’s (W) early damage was nerfed and replaced with per level scaling damage. Her durability has been shifted from early to late game and passive cap has been reduced to four stacks from five.

Flawless Duet’s (E) blade travel time has been changed from variable to fixed. No matter where you tried to cast a blade it would always take 0.25 seconds to get there. While this will affect the way seasoned Irelia players now use her combo, E is no longer a zero-counterplay stun. E can now also no longer be cast or recast during Q or while crowd controlled.

Lillia’s changes gave her higher stats for almost all her abilities.

Lillia was quite popular in the jungle when the champion was released but her play rate has fallen since then. Daniel 'Maxw3ll' Emmons assured Lillia fans on Twitter that her movespeed at two items is very close to what it was previously, mostly because a lot of the MS she was getting from it was burned due to the MS speed cap/falloff.

After Tahm Kench’s rework dropped in League of Legends patch 11.13, Tahm’s pick rate went up quite a bit. However, over the weeks, it fell off due to a huge drop in his win rate.

Tahm Kench's pick rate took a sharp drop afrer his rework despite an initial spike in interest.

Riot is trying to salvage the champion with an overall buff. His Tongue Lash (Q) now also deals damage from An Acquired Taste (Passive).

Here are the changes to Dr. Mundo.

Just after Dr Mundo's rework, he is getting even more tweaks in LoL patch 11.14.
