League of Legends Items Guide: Old Items That Were Changed for Season 11

All the Items That Were Changed for Season 11

You’ve probably heard by now that the big change for this offseason was a massive revamp to the Item Shop.

So far, we’ve covered all the new Legendary items along with the Mythic Items for  ADCs, Assassins, Bruisers, Mages, and Supports.

In this guide, we’ll be covering all the older items that were adjusted or revamped for the new season.

If you want to know about all the other new items Riot has implemented for Season 11, check out our other Season 11 item articles where we’ll be breaking down all the new additions.

Before we move on, let’s talk about one of the biggest changes to items which is the new haste stat. Haste is replacing cooldown reduction – overall it’s similar to CDR as it allows you to use your abilities more often.

However, it doesn’t have a cap and you can buy as much haste as you like. Riot’s goal with this was to create greater flexibility with builds and how champions can use their abilities.

Many of the items we will talk about in this guide have haste, so keep an eye out!
