Attack Damage growth decreased. Q base damage decreased.
Zeri's rework has succeeded in shifting her to a new and healthier play pattern, but sheâs been a bit strong in higher brackets of play since her changes in 12.23. Her shorter range brought in many new avenues of counterplay early in the game which was one of our major goals, but she's still a bit too consistent of a DPS threat at her three item power spike. As follow up to her changes in the last patch, weâre toning down her scaling damage a bit and hitting her favorite cat so Zeri is a bit less scary of a carry.
Passive damage decreased. E increased healing from R decreased. R bonus movement speed decreased.
Aatrox has been bringing death to the top lane for a while now, and with Preseason shipped and the new season kicking off, now is a great time to address his strong presence in top. Weâre tapping down his damage, healing, and move speed which should help bring the Darkin more in line with other top laners.
Base health decreased. Armor growth decreased. E bonus attack damage decreased.
Since his changes in the last patch, Dr. Mundo has been going where he pleases (top and jungle) and performing quite well there. Now that our changes have succeeded in pumping up Mundoâs tank scaling fantasy, weâre looking to reel in his power and avoid any potential malpractice issuesâ¦
Health growth increased. Q slow increased. W cooldown decreased.
Lissandra has been underperforming across different skill brackets and lacking excitement for a while now. Weâre making a few changes that should help her get more involved in fights, increase overall utility, and also synergize with her close combat style of play.
Base AD decreased, base health decreased. W calculations adjusted, flat armor decreased, armor scaling decreased.
Like Amumu and the jungle companions, Rammus found a new friend in Preseason by the name of JakâSho the Protean. The current synergy between Rammusâ W and JakâSho is being adjusted so that the two interact more cleanly with one another, but this should be roughly neutral. That said, Rammus is a bit too strong right now, so we are baking in a small nerf to his overall durability.
Base attack speed and attack speed ratio increased.
Xayah isn't quite up to snuff compared to other marksmen and her attack-focused builds are weaker than more casting-centric ones. A moderate increase to her overall attack speed should help with both of those issues and help Xayah find her wings in the bot lane.
Base movement speed decreased. Passive base damage decreased. W physical damage decreased.
As players have become more comfortable and skilled on KâSante heâs started becoming strong, which is par for the course. However, combined with his last buffs this pushed him a little too far in high skill brackets of play. Weâre bringing his power down a notch before he starts to become particularly problematic.
Base AD increased. Q (Hammer Form) base damage increased. W (Hammer Form) damage increased.
Jayce has been keeping his distance recently. Mostly because heâs always in his cannon form due to its many advantages over the weaker hammer form. In order to help balance out his stances weâre buffing up the hammer form to give Jayce the opportunity to have more of those cool Arcane fight scenes.
Passive AD scaling decreased. Q bonus AD scaling decreased.
Since the durability and tank item updates, our premiere anti-tank skirmisher has been eating well. Her bonus-AD-hungry kit has better options against all foes with the new Ravenous Hydra. As the stars have aligned for Fioraâs success, we need to tap down the AD scaling on both her anti-tank and generic damage. Champions who can do too much of both can veer into the territory of becoming too strong, but we do want her to maintain her unique kit. Our eyes will be on the Grand Duelist to monitor these changes.
Q base damage decreased.
Yuumi is still terrorizing higher skill brackets of play leading to her current ban rate being higher than weâd like. In order to help get Yuumi out of the picture while we rework her, weâre tagging her Q with some pretty significant nerfs to reduce her powerful poke and make her less frustrating to play against.
