League of Legends Patch v1.0.0.129

BY Andrew Miesner / November 15, 2011

Today, League of Legends received another update, adding a brand new champion – Fizz, the Tidal Trickster. The patch included balances to Graves and Akali, changes to ranged carries, and several other changes to many champions. This patch also marks the release of the new season two Masteries. The mastery trees have been altered substantially to accomodate new summoner spells and new ways to play champions.

Fizz, the Tidal Trickster


Nimble Fighter (Passive): Fizz’s dexterity allows him to ignore unit collision and take less damage from basic attacks.

Urchin Strike: Fizz dashes through his target, dealing normal attack damage plus additional magic damage.

Seastone Trident:

  • Passive: Fizz’s attacks rend his target, applying a damage over time effect that strengthens if the opponent is low on life.
  • Active: Fizz’s attacks are empowered, dealing additional magic damage and causing grievous wounds to his opponents.


Playful / Trickster: Fizz hops onto his staff, becoming untargetable. He may then choose to slam the ground or hop off to another location

Chum the Waters (Ultimate): Fizz flings a fish that can bind itself onto enemy champions – After a brief delay, a Shark will emerge from the earth to eat the fish, dealing damage and knocking back all enemy champions.
