Though she is a new champion, it seems that Gwen is slowly going down the route of Rell, and Riot will not allow that to happen. Not to a champion with so much marketability.

In patch 12.13, Gwen is going to have her abilities reworked. This isn't a huge rework or mid-scope update as Riot Games call it like the one Sivir is getting, but it will have quite an impact on anyone who likes to play Gwen and is used to her current kit.

The promised changes are:

  • Base stats 
    • HP Regen Growth: 0.55 --> 0.9 per 5s
  • Q - Snip Snip
    • Damage per Snip: 9-21(+5% AP) --> 10-26(+5%AP)

Her ultimate has been changed, making it much weaker, and her healing has taken a large nerf as well. The only thing going for her, in essence, is her Q ability, which will make her an incredible lane bully. The changes are poised to go live with patch 12.13, on July 13, 2022.
