Ghost Poro

New effect:
When your wards expire, they leave behind a Ghost Poro, which grants visiojn for 60 seconds. Nearby enemy champions scare the Ghost Poro away.

Eyeball Collection

No longer gives an eyeball forward takedown.


 A suite of changes are coming to the Howling Abyss in patch 9.7. To start, we’re heading back to Bilgewater via the Butcher’s Bridge, but there are some other major changes heading to the mode.
  • Bans:
    • You’ll now be able to remove champions from the random pool in exactly the same way as on Summoner’s Rift, ensuring you won’t come up against them.
  • Game length:
    • Minion waves will begin spawning more quickly, up to every 15 seconds, from the 15-minute mark. They’ll also speed up, getting a healthy boost in movement speed. To help out, champions will begin dealing extra damage to structures, up to a maximum of 30%.
  • Poke reduction:
    • Damage from champions more than 900 units away will now be reduced by 15% (with the exception of ultimates and DoT abilities).
    • A small visual indicator will show when this effect has triggered.
  • New Summoner Spell:
    • Barrier has been replaced by Backtrack. When activated, you’ll gain a small blue shield, and will be dragged backwards after a 3 second delay. Melee champions will move back further than ranged champion.
  • Items:
    • Mariner’s Vengeance – This new item has the same build path and stats as Guardian Angel, but instead of reviving, upon death champions will become invulnerable, cleanse all CC, and refresh all basic ability cooldowns. After four seconds, you’ll die anyway.
    • Ghostwalkers – These are melee-only boots that allow champions to phase out of the side of the map. You can’t use them if you’ve taken damage in the past three seconds, but upon activation, you’ll gain 250 movement speed.
    • Warmog’s Armor – Passive changed to restore 5% of missing HP per second, instead of 5% of max HP per second.

You can see the full list of changes via Surrenderat20.
