While Dr. Mundo is getting a big VGU, Riot are looking at revamping other champions in League Season 11 to bring them back to modernity. Next on their list: Rammus, with the jungler set to get a new set of wheels in 2021.

Among all the new champion releases, including Viego, Riot are brushing up on some of League of Legends’ most outdated designs in 2021.

The item rework has left a lot of old champions even further in the lurch. There’s a fair few Riot has their eyes on, but there’s one at the top of the list: Rammus. The Armadillo is expected to get a mini rework in the coming weeks, and there’s a precedent for the changes.

Rammus’ new Wild Rift design coming to League of Legends

There weren’t many details revealed of Rammus’ rework in the League Season 11 livestream ⁠— at least for the PC game. However, on mobile for Wild Rift, there was a hint of what’s to come.

Segment begins at 2:34

With Rammus’ arrival to the mobile MOBA coming shortly, Riot have revamped him to make him more enjoyable to play with dual stick controls. This includes changing his passive to a “roll” giving him bonus movement speed out of combat, and a new ultimate named “Soaring Slam.”

Rammus’ Wild Rift ultimate gives the Armadillo some hang time, before slamming back into the ground and creating tremors. This more mobile engage opportunity could bring the tank back into the meta ⁠— at least on mobile.

Lead gameplay designer Mark ‘Scruffy’ Yetter confirmed some of these changes would be coming to Summoner’s Rift too. Rammus’ Puncturing Taunt and ultimate will be the focus of the changes, rather than Powerball.

His taunt will now last longer on monsters to help his jungle clear, but less on champions. Also, he is getting the slam ultimate — dealing bonus damage to towers with the slam, adding a bit more interactivity to his kit.

Dr Mundo, Tahm Kench reworks also slated for Season 11

The announcement of Rammus’ update comes after Yetter outlined Riot’s plans to “spin up more small champion reworks for later patches” after patch 11.2 goes live on January 21.

Riot has outlined their plans to give Tahm Kench a rework sometime in 2021. They’re testing swapping his ultimate with his Devour W, as well as a host of other changes to make the River King a bit easier to balance.

Tahm Kench could see his iconic kit shuffled around slightly in a Season 10 mini-rework.

Tahm Kench is also due for a Season 11 mini-rework.

Dr. Mundo’s full VGU is also on its way, expected by the middle of the year. There is also a VGU poll live featuring Skarner, Quinn, Nocturne, Shyvana, and Udyr, giving players another chance to choose the next major update.

Rammus rework full changelist in League of Legends

Puncturing Taunt (E)

  • Taunt duration is increased by 250% on monsters.
  • Cooldown :: 12/11.5/11/105/10 >>> 12 at all ranks
  • Taunt Duration :: 1.25-2.25 >>> 1-2 seconds
  • Trimming some power here to account for his powerful new ultimate

Soaring Slam (R)

  • Rammus leaps into the air and slams down at a target location, dealing magic damage and Slowing enemies for 1 second.
  • If Soaring Slam is cast while Rammus is in Powerball, enemies near the center are also Knocked Up and take Powerball’s collision damage, ending Powerball’s effect.
  • Rammus also generates 3 additional aftershocks at the target location, each one dealing a small amount of magic damage and refreshing the initial slow.
  • Soaring Slam deals 200% damage to turrets.
  • Soaring Slam’s range increased based on Rammus’ Move Speed.
  • Cooldown :: 100/80/60 >>> 120/100/80 seconds

The forever-skillful Jay-Jay Okocha has finally gotten his Prime ICON card in FIFA 21, and you can pick him up for your Ultimate Team ⁠— if you’re willing to part way with your coins. Here’s what you need to do.

Jay-Jay Okocha really pumped flavor into football. His stylish moves made the likes of Ronaldinho household names, and the Nigerian experienced plenty of success for himself with PSG, Eintracht Frankfurt, and Bolton.

Now, he can bring success to your FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. The 90-rated Prime ICON is available through the game’s latest set of ICON SBCs, although you’ll have to be willing to part ways with a fair bit of cash for him.

Okocha’s Prime ICON card puts the legendary Nigerian into the 90s and primed for a Pace style to bump him up further theoretically.

With 87 Pace ⁠— one down from his base 85 ICON ⁠— he might not be as fast, but he makes up for it across the board with better Passing (+5), Shooting (+3), and Dribbling (+2). Throw on Hunter, and you can get up to 96 Pace and 90 Shooting. It’s a lethal card to have in CAM, especially when you take 5* Skills and 4* Weak Foot into account.

Jay-Jay Okocha ICON SBC price & requirements

Jay-Jay Okocha is the cheapest of the three new ICON SBCs, coming in at around 500,000 to 750,000 coins. If you’ve got spare cards lying around ⁠— especially high-rated untradeables ⁠— it might be worth the investment.

You’ll need to complete six SBCs for the job though. Here’s what you need to do.
