Riot is set to deploy LoL Patch 14.7 in the first week of April.

After a pretty significant Patch 14.6 for League of Legends, Riot is moving on to the next update. Patch 14.6 had big changes to a bunch of items, Galio, and more. Makes a lot of sense, given how Riot has been making changes so far.

As we look forward to Patch 14.7, Riot has been busy at work. We will finally be getting the new Skarner while also getting more balance changes. While a lot of it is still unclear, some details have already come out of PBE. Lastly, the new April Fools skins are coming in this patch as well.

Here is all we know so far about Patch 14.7.

Note: The article is still in progress.

Skarner VGU

While we have seen the information Riot has released for Skarner, he is still undergoing many balance changes. So, this section will be completed after Riot has finalized PBE details on Skarner.

Champion Buffs

Here is the list of buffs Riot is giving to champions.

Galio

Riot is continuing to buff Galio, as there are some AP ratio buffs coming. Riot’s clarification for the buffs is to make him last longer in fights and be stronger in the mid-lane.

Nerfs are being given to the following champions.

Fiora

Her base AD is taking a hit, something that might not seem a lot but it is pretty significant.

  • Base Stats:
    • Attack Damage: 68 >>> 65.

    • Healing: 12 – 20% (based on level) >>> 10 – 20% (based on level).

  • All Monster Mods Removed
  • Passive – Break The Mold:
    • Magic Resistance: 30 + 1.85 >>> 30 + 2.05.

One of the strongest champions in Pro Play and Solo Queue is getting some nerfs.

    • Cooldown: 140/120/100 seconds >>> 160/135/110 seconds.

Riot is giving these champions an adjustment.

Nunu & Willump

Riot is changing what items are recommended for Nunu & Willump.

Sona

Like Nami’s changes, Sona’s ones are the same, trading damage for utility.

  • Q – Hymn of Valor:
    • Melody Bonus Damage Amp: 40% >>> 50%.
    • Melody Bonus Damage: 10/15/20/25/30 (+ 20% AP) >>> 10/15/20/25/30 (+ 10% AP).

Items Nerfs

Bloodsong

Riot is finally nerfing Bloodsong, and that will take out a lot of those unique AD supports that have popped up.

  • Unique Passive – Spellblade:
    • Damage: 150% base AD >>> 100% base AD.

Imperial Mandate

Another Support Item is getting nerfed as this one is doing a little too much damage.

  • Unique Passive – Coordinated Fire:
    • Marked Enemies Damage: 12% of the target’s Current Health >>> 10% of the target’s Current Health.

Statikk Shiv

This item has been too cheap as a first buy of ADCs, so Riot is increasing the price.

  • Cost: 2700 Gold >>> 2900 Gold.

Zaz’Zak’s Realmspike

The Damage potential of Zaz’Zak is too strong, so both the damage numbers are decreasing, and the cooldown is increasing.

  • Unique Passive – Void Explosion:
    • Damage: 20 (+ 20% AP)(+ 4% of each target’s Maximum Health) >>> 10 (+ 20% AP)(+ 3% of each target’s Maximum Health).
    • Cooldown: 8/7/6 seconds >>> 10 seconds.

Skins

The April Fools skins are coming, as many of them have been requested by players and fans. Here they all are.
