Hotfix for AD Carry items in League of Legends

Hotfix for AD Carry items in League of Legends

The last patch 8.12 had many changes for Meta game, and today Riot called a hotfix for AD carry items.



In a post on Twitter, Richard Henkel, a product lead on the Live Gameplay Team, announced that tweaks are being made to Infinity Edge, Stormrazor, and Essence Reaver. The tweaks, which should load into the game today, are as follows.


AD reduced from 75 to 70

Storm’s Edge, the item’s passive, grants 20 percent increased movement speed for 0.75 seconds instead of 10 percent for 1.75 seconds when procced

Essence Reaver

Essence Flare, the passive on ultimate cast, is having its effect reduced from 8 seconds to 6 seconds. The attack speed boost it grants will increase from 30 percent to 50 percent

Infinity Edge

Cost reduced from 3,700 to 3,600

Both of those items are being reworked slightly to provide more power in a shorter window. Players will have to be more judicious in how they proc the items in fights to get the most out of their abilities.

Infinity Edge hasn’t been as useful lately, mainly because the crit AD Carry who used to build it are totally lost in the current Meta. There are a number of issues with champions like Caitlyn and Tristana, who ruled the Meta before Patch 8.11 and have subsequently fallen off a cliff. Riot has acknowledged those weaknesses and has fixes on the way.

The hotfix for AD Carry items must arrive today to League of Legends.
