Champions Balance Changes

Kayle

Q - Radiant Blast

[Removed] No longer refunds mana on champion hit.

W - Celestial Blessing

• Mana cost increased from 70/80/90/100/110 to 90/100/110/120/130

Ahri

P - Essence Theft

Passive name changed from Vastayan Grace to Essence Theft

[Removed] Innate: Whenever Ahri lands 2 ability hits against a champion within 1.5 seconds, she gains 20% bonus movement speed for 3 seconds.

[New] Innate: Whenever Ahri hits an enemy with one of her abilities, she gains a charge of Essence Theft, and can gain up to 3 charges per ability cast. Upon reaching 9 charges, her next ability that hits an enemy Champion heals her for 30/60/90/180 (based on level) (+27% AP) — note this is 1 large heal instead of the per-hit heal on live.

While Ahri has 9 stacks of Essence Theft, Orb of Deception consumes the stacks to Heal power heal Ahri for 3/5/9/18 (based on level) (+ 9% AP) for each enemy hit instead of generating more stacks.

The article says June 18 but I think that is a typo. I'm not certain but it should be August 18th (I think based on the team taking a break from August 10-17).
