League of Legends: Patch 13.6 Nerfs Navori Quickblades Cooldown Reduction, Improves Nashor's Tooth

Patch 13.6
Patch 13.6 Riot Games

A few items in League of Legends have received adjustments in Patch 13.6. These are the Bloodthirster, Nashor’s Tooth, and Navori Quickblades.

Previously, Navori Quickblades can out-DPS the Infinity Edge due to its ability to reset basic ability cooldowns with auto attacks. As a result, it was the best-performing ADC capstone by a small margin, and League of Legends players deem it a mandatory item to include in their builds. To bring this somewhat on par with Infinity Edge, the cooldown reduction on auto attacks has been reduced from 15% of the remaining cooldown to just 12% in this update.

As part of their continuing effort to buff mage items, the developers improved Nashor’s Tooth in Patch 13.6. Nashor’s Tooth now improves the wielder’s ability haste by 15. However, this item now requires the Fiendish Codex instead of the Amplifying Tome to complete. Because of this, the total cost of making Nashor’s Tooth has increased from 3,000 to 3,200.

And lastly, the Bloodthirster was supposed to be a defensive option to improve one’s survivability. It was never meant for players to hastily create it to turn their ADC champions into tanks. So, to discourage this behavior, a flat nerf was implemented where the shield granted by this item now only soaks 100-400 (100 up to level 8, then +30 per level) worth of damage.
