League of Legends: Patch 13.3 Nerfs Umbral Glaive and Radiant Virtue

Patch 13.3
Patch 13.3 Riot Games

Two items in League of Legends that have proven to be too effective are nerfed in Patch 13.3. This update is set to launch later today, so keep an eye out for it.

Anyway, the two items in question are Umbral Glaive and Radiant Virtue. According to the League of Legends dev team, Umbral Glaive has been quite effective when impairing enemy vision for assassins, supports, and assassin/marksman supports. As a result, this item no longer kills traps instantly, though it will still reveal them to you. Furthermore, you’ll have to wait for 50 seconds instead of 40 before its unique effect can be triggered again.

Some aspects of Radiant Virtue have also been nerfed since it’s currently overpowered. This item now costs 3,200 gold to make. Additionally, Guiding Light’s cooldown has been increased to 90 seconds, but it now increases your HP to 15% (up from 10%) when you transcend after casting your ultimate.

The total healing provided by Radiant Virtue is now set to a fixed 12% of your maximum HP over nine seconds. It is also worth noting that this item no longer gives you and your allies 20 ability haste.

Patch 13.3 brings adjustments to certain champions as well. You can read some of them below:
