The midseason patch is coming to League of Legends, and it’s bringing a new version of Mythic Items, bringing back some items from League of Legends’ past as well.
Riot Games announced during a Dev Talk video that they weren’t happy with the state of Mythic Items. Riot tends to be a very responsive company to problems with characters or mechanics. To fix this, the Mythic Item roster has been reworked and will be making its way to live servers after a brief stint on PBE. These are all the new Mythic items being added to the game and what they do.
New Mythic Items
A couple of new, and essentially new, Mythic Items are being added as a part of the item rework.
Echoes of Helia
The first new Mythic Item would be Echoes of Helia. It grants AP, Health, Mana Regen, and Ability Haste. It has two unique abilities, one provides one of two charges upon damaging an enemy. The next time the wielder heals an ally, they restore more health and deal damage to an enemy at the cost of one charge. Its Mythic Passive makes it provide Ability Haste for more items.
Youmuu’s Ghostblade may already exist in League of Legends, but now it’s being moved up to Mythic and reworked. Its active ability still gives the wielder a burst of movement speed, but it also doubles the speed of its brand-new stack mechanic. The new mechanic is Haunt. You gain stacks of Haunt while moving and gain movement speed out of combat scaling with stacks. At maximum stacks, you gain extra lethality. Haunt resets four seconds after damaging an enemy champion.
Duskblade of Draktharr
Duskblade of Draktharr already exists in League of Legends, but it’s getting a facelift with the new Mythic Item rework. Now it gives the wielder passive damage scaling with their target’s missing health. When a target that the wielder has damage dies within 3 seconds of being damage, the wielder becomes untargetable. This is a huge upgrade and will help assassins slip out of teams back to safety.
Guinsoo’s Rageblade is finally getting the respect it deserves as a build-defining purchase by being moved up to Mythic. It still functions nearly identically to before, adding magic damage on-hit to auto-attacks and scaling with Critical Strike chance.
Infinity Edge is also becoming a Mythic, built for absolutely crushing amounts of Attack Damage on Crit-focused builds. Its Mythic Passive grants 5 more Attack Damage per completed Legendary Item.
Navori Quickblades are another Legendary Item being elevated to Mythic status. Navori Quickblades will continue to make abilities deal more damage scaling with Critical Strike Chance, but it also reduces your cooldowns on-hit, similar to Spear of Shojin.
New Legendary Items
While several items are being moved up to Mythic during the item rework, there are also Mythic Items being moved down to Legendary. Prime examples of ex-Mythic items are Kraken Slayer, Imperial Mandate, and Immortal Shieldbow. All three of these bottom lane items have been downgraded to non-build-defining status. There are also several new items available, including items from LoL’s past that have been gone for a long time.
Prowler’s Claw is also getting a rework, now it is an item designed for champions with lots of dashes. Now it grants extra damage on an auto-attack after dashing, blinking, or exiting stealth. If the wielder is melee, this enhanced auto-attack will also slow them. Guinsoo’s Rageblade will still function as you expect it to, just more powerfully.
Statikk Shiv is returning as a Legendary item for ADCs. It grants Attack Damage, Attack Speed, and Critical Strike Chance. Moving and auto-attacking build charges toward an Energized Attack. While you have Statikk Shiv, the Energed Attack deals a burst of Magic Damage to 6-12 targets, scaling with level. Statikk Shiv was a classic for some Marksman who now miss the toolset and will surely be a smash hit with Zeri players.
New Component Items
Chalice of Blessing
Chalice of Blessing is a new Component Item that builds into Redemption, Mikael’s Blessing, and Echoes of Helia. Chalice of Blessing grants health and Mana Regen. It also grants Health Regen for bonus Mana Regen, making supports that build it excellent at recovering health.
Lifewell Pendant is another new Component Item, it grants Health, Armor, and Health Regen. It’s a very plain component that now builds into Zeke’s Herald, Knight’s Vow, Locket of the Iron Solari, and Evenshroud.
Those are all of the new items being added or fully reworked in the League of Legends midseason patch, 13.10. Most of the big changes are focused on Marksman characters and the bottom lane, but some will affect characters in other lanes. These item changes will be tested on the Public Beta Environment before being added to the live servers, but Riot seems confident in its design. For those looking to see all the minor changes of the item rework, Reddit user u/03AtbLoLYT compiled all of the developers previews into one place.
