Ability pings improved in League of Legends Patch 9.1, which goes live Wednesday, allowing them to display which targets are in range of that particular ability.


The change will allow for clearer and more direct communication between team members about what each player's capabilities are at any given moment of a ​League of Legends match. Check out the full list of affected champions and abilities below:

- Galio's Hero's Entrance (R)

- Nocturne's Paranoia (R)

- Pantheon's Grand Skyfall (R)

- Yasuo's Last Breath (R)

- Caitlyn's Ace in the Hole (R)

- Lux's Final Spark (R)

- Twisted Fate's Gate (R2)

- Jhin's Deadly Flourish (W) and Curtain Call (R)

- Ziggs' Mega Inferno Bomb (R)

- Xerath's Rite of the Arcane (R)


The improvements to ability pings arrive in League of Legends alongside ​balance changes for several heroes, including many targeted specifically at buffing marksman characters such as Ashe. Also affected by balance changes are ​Kalista, Ornn and Sejuani, who will be adjusted with their tendency to over-perform in pro matches and struggle in ranked matches in mind.


League of Legends Patch 9.1 will also see the release of ​Blood Moon skins for Sivir, Pyke and Aatrox.
