Changes for Patch 8.9

Patch 8.9

In this patch, Riot is introducing two big changes – one to the mages and one to the neutral objectives.  They are altering the mana consumption of the mages, making for them harder to farm during the mid-game period. Also, they are increasing Baron’s health stats, as well as decreasing his damage output, making him more accessible to teams that are ahead in the game.
