In the lead up to the next patch, Riot have disabled Chemtech Drake, Soul and Terrain.

"When we introduced the Chemtech Drake, Soul, and Terrain in preseason, we shared our intent for it to have a higher impact on games than the original four elemental drakes. Over the past few months, we've heard your feedback across social media and surveys that, even with this goal in mind, the Chemtech addition has just been too frustrating to play with—especially if you're on the losing team.

While the Chemtech Drake and its corresponding systems are disabled, we'll be iterating on design changes to solve the issues with the current versions, while maintaining the spirit of what we were originally trying to achieve. Our primary focus will be on the terrain. This may take time to do right, meaning there's a chance we won't bring the Chemtech Drake back for a while.

Our goal, as always, is to make Summoner's Rift the best it can be, and it was clear that we missed the mark this time. Thanks for sharing all your feedback and for the patience you afforded us while we gave Chemtech Drake its shot in the wild."

Bug Fixes & QoL
  • Hextech Gates: Champions will now both visually and mechanically move along the Hextech Gates’ travel paths rather than immediately teleporting to their destination gate. This also means that active champion effects (such as Kennen’s R - Slicing Maelstrom) will travel along with and apply their effects around the champion’s traveling indicator.
  • Fixed a bug where Kled's W - Violent Tendencies' fourth attack would not deal its bonus damage if the ability was learned during a basic attack
  • Fixed a bug where Runaan's Hurricane would not proc correctly with Ezreal's Q - Mystic Shot after a certain range
  • Fixed a bug where killing an enemy champion with The Collector would grant Samira an extra Style stack
  • Fixed a bug where the Charm icon would not appear in champion buff/debuff bars
  • Fixed a bug where Kled's Courage bar would display incorrect values upon losing Skaarl
  • Fixed a bug where resource bars (like Energy or Rage bars) would sometimes get visually stuck when changing window display modes
  • Varus's Q - Piercing Arrow cancellation VFX has been restored on all skins
  • Fixed a bug where Talon's blades would briefly disappear for a frame during his R - Shadow Assault's VFX
  • Base Darius and Base Amumu's voiceovers have been remastered for clarity
  • Fixed Battlecast Skarner's sound effects to play correctly when he marks a minion with Crystal Venom using his E - Fracture and when he gains Crystal Charge upon triggering Crystal Venom
  • The in-game FPS indicator's update rate has been reverted for smoother reporting
  • Fixed a bug where players would be able to select multiple roles in Summoner's Rift lobbies with 5 players
  • Fixed a bug where pressing the ESC key would not close the role selector in game lobbies
New Skins
  • Crystal Rose Akshan
  • Crystal Rose Janna
  • Withered Rose Elise
