League of Legends is adding some new items that only ARAM players will get to make use of, though a powerful tank item is also being lost.

Riot Games shared news on Tuesday through the PBE boards in an announcement that said three new fully-upgraded items called Ghostwalkers, Bloodletter’s Veil, and Spectral Cutlass are being added to the one-lane game mode. Another new item called Lifeline is being added as a component to one of the finished weapons that’ll give players the power back to a marked location.

Other changes are also coming along with the new items that include the removal of Warmog’s Armor. The item that allows champions to constantly regenerate health assuming they meet the required threshold can be a beast to fight in ARAM, even if it’s on non-tank champions like Soraka. It’s now been removed in the ARAM mode on the PBE along with the other changes previewed below.

  • You now start with the correct amount of experience for Level 3, instead of starting with no experience
  • Warmog's Armor has been removed
  • Dark Harvest soul drop amounts have been reduced from 5 (champ death) / 4 (cannon minion) to 4 / 2.

The effects, stats, and prices of the new items weren’t shared in the announcement post, but Riot Popc0rner said that a full article would be coming soon to discuss the changes in more detail. But before the article is out, you can go ahead and check out the items on the PBE if you have the appropriate account. Even if you don’t Surrender@20 has already checked the PBE files and reported on the new items’ full details, all of which are seen below. You’ll notice that the final item, a boots upgrade, is locked to melee champions.
