Items are constantly changing along with champions, and League of Legends Patch 7.14, which goes live Wednesday, will see the return of an old status effect that was gone for an old item, along with the addition of a new one.
Bramble Vest, an item that builds into Thornmail, will be added as per the PBE update from June 28. It does 20 magic damage to the attack and applies Grievous Wounds on the attack for one second. The new recipe for Thornmail also reduces the attacker’s attack speed as well as applying Grievous Wounds.
Ancient Coin line has a new effect along with the quest of picking up randomly dropped coins. Instead of giving the user an extra skill point to use in their kit, nearby allies now gain 8 percent bonus movement speed when moving toward the holder.
Randuin’s Omen has a new build path and gives more health, and while the total cost is unchanged, the item now gives 400 health instead of 350, perhaps seeking to boost its status as a tanking item.
The offensive items have largely just carried over from the PBE changes. The Dirk line of items no longer give bonus out of combat movement speed, but upon killing an enemy, deals 40 extra damage on the next damaging spell cast. Duskblade of Draktharr gets a cost decrease and damage decrease but does more damage on the passive while applying a slow. Youmuu’s Ghostblade has lower damage, more lethality, but more movement speed when activated. Edge of Night now gives health but no more magic resist.
