In a new LoL patch preview video, Riot delves into the details of the upcoming Shyvana patch set to introduce the champion alongside a series of balance changes and gameplay tweaks. In addition to the draconic champion's arrival, players will find new champion Graves has been nerfed following feedback demonstrating that he's a little overpowered. Monkey King WuKong will be getting buffs to his offensive capabilities and his decoy ability will see a series of bug-fixes that should make it a more useful skill.
Read on to find out how Shaco is being buffed and what's happening with Dominion, to watch the full patch preview video, and to have your say on whether this is a good patch.
Olaf's ragnarock ability will now break out of crowd control abilities like stuns, silences and fears, making it a more useful and reactive skill. Underused champion Shaco recieves a complete rework of most of his abilities, with the intent that he become a bigger assassination threat. His jack-in-the-box will have a shorter arming time, making it viable to use when surprising another player by placing it in an obvious escape route. Shaco will no longer have to bait enemies into walking onto pre-placed boxes in order to get a kill. The Dominion game mode also gets some changes, with respawn times being increased a little for the losing team to make it harder to come back from certain defeat without eliminating that possibility.
