General

  • Apollo rose to the top of everyone's list at the start of Season 4. As the meta has stabilized, Apollo fell from being the most dominant pick but he is still over-performing. His early clear with So Beautiful and superior boxing ability from Serenade's protections are both seeing a slight downward adjustment to rein him back in.

General

  • So Beautiful will now deal full Damage to the Minion Wave rather than being reduced per Minion hit. Apollo's ability to push and clear the wave is receiving a large increase in Power for this so we needed to compensate by hitting one of his strengths. Apollo is known for his global pressure, but in the late game 90 seconds was allowing Apollo to pressure the enemy team a bit too often. Now at 110s at all ranks, Across The Sky now matches similar global effects in Cooldown.

General

  • Apollo is a character who excels at boxing as well as being a constant presence for the enemy team. While effective he often found himself lacking the extra kick needed due to his high Mana costs, especially when ulting. Now when he chooses to use his Ultimate, he is more likely to land and be a threat versus landing and being near out of Mana. Additionally, So Beautiful is also seeing a reduction in Mana cost, as well as a lower Cooldown early to assist in his ability to clear early if he chooses to spend
