Riot Games has finally released this latest League of Legends: Wild Rift 2.0a update and we have the complete list of patch notes for you to read through. This update doesn’t bring any new features or major content updates as we already had that in the last Wild Rift 2.0 update.

Here are the official patch notes for the League of Legends: Wild Rift 2.0a that is now rolling out to everyone today on January 19.

CHAMPIONS

AURELION SOL

This one’s coming in hot from a recent spike to Aurelion Sol’s winrate. From the desk of balance lead, Jonathan Chao: “I don’t know how to word it. Basically he could zoom everywhere before, just not change directions. Now he can zoom everywhere and change directions. We are nerfing him so he can change directions but at a slower move speed.”

(1) Starsurge

  • Bugfix: Aurelion Sol no longer gains 20% movement speed when Starsurge missile is fired

(3) Comet of Legend

  • Maximum passive move speed: 40% → 20%

EVELYNN

Evelynn’s push and roam power as a mid laner is just too much. On top of that, her (1) damage is generally pretty high. Haters gonna Hate Spike.

(1) Hate Spike

  • AP ratio: 0.5 → 0.45
  • Mana: 25/30/35/40 → 30/35/40/45
  • Damage to minions: 100% at all ranks → 35/40/45/50%

GRAGAS

Gragas is very tanky with great sustain in lane; we’re nerfing him so he doesn’t straight up win all trades against his lane opponents.

Base Stats

  • Health per level: 125 → 115

(P) Happy Hour

  • Cooldown: 7s → 8s

(1) Barrel Roll

  • Mana: 55/60/65/70 → 65/70/75/80
  • Minion damage: 70% → 50%

LEE SIN

The blind monk has been kicking up a fuss with his (1) range.

(1) Sonic Wave

  • Target range: 11 → 10
  • Base damage: 60/100/140/180 → 55/90/125/160

MISS FORTUNE

Miss Fortune is on the strong side, so we’re tuning her down a bit.

(1) Double Up

  • Base damage: 30/60/90/120 → 20/50/80/110

(2) Strut

  • Attack speed: 40/60/80/100% → 30/50/70/90%

SHYVANA

Shyvana has a lot of damage on her kit, and a lot of innate tankiness. We’re lowering some of her base stats and her elemental dragon-empowered bonuses.

Base Stats

  • Armor: 45 → 40

(1) Twin Bite

  • Slow (Mountain Dragon buff): 60% → 40%

(2) Burnout

  • Base damage: 25/45/65/85 → 25/40/55/70

(Ult) Dragon’s Descent

  • Dragon form bonus health (Ocean Dragon buff): 150/250/350 HP → 100/150/200 HP

WUKONG

Wukong’s jungle is very strong. We’re nerfing his clear speed and his element of surprise.

(2) Warrior Trickster

  • Invisibility time: 1.5s → 1s
  • Clone damage: 50% at all levels → 20/30/40/50%

(3) Nimbus Strike

  • Attack speed bonus: 35/40/45/50% → 25/35/45/55%

ITEMS

GUARDIAN ANGEL

League of GA is coming to an end.

  • Total cost: 2800G → 3100G
  • Combine cost: 400G → 700G
  • Attack Damage: 45 → 40
  • Revive cooldown: 180s → 210s
