League of Legends v1.0.0.81

Particle and Network Improvements

We've made networking optimizations in order to reduce the lag and latency for some players. In addition, the particle system has been improved to provide better performance for some machines in areas that have a high density of particles. This is most noticeable near the top of Twisted Treeline, but general performance should also improve.

Shen, The Eye of Twilight

  • Vorpal Blade – Hits a target enemy for magic damage, and marks the target for allies to see. Allied units that attack the marked enemy target get healed over several seconds.
  • Feint - Shen defends against the next champion attack or spell, blocking much of the damage from it.
  • Shadow Dash - Shen dashes towards target location, taunting enemies he passes through.
  • Stand United (ultimate) - Shen places a shield on himself and on a target ally which absorbs damage. After channeling for several seconds, Shen teleports to the target ally.
  • Ki Strike (passive) - Every 8 seconds, Shen’s next attack deals bonus damage based on his max health. Being attacked by enemy champions makes this passive occur more frequently.
