Mark Yetter, a Riot Games employee, revealed the balance targets for patch 10.14. It seems like the long-anticipated nerf to Volibear will finally hit the live servers.
League of Legends' lead gameplay designer, Mark Yetter, also known as Riot Scruffy revealed the list of champions they are going to change in the upcoming 10.14 patch. The specific changes aren't out yet, but we have a brief overview of what the new patch might be including.
The list of champions that will receive nerfs this patch is as follows:
- Pyke (mid)
The nerfs to Volibear and Wukong are something most players were looking forward to, considering that they've been dominating the top lane position for a couple of patches now.
Volibear currently holds one of the highest win rates for the jungle position with 54.36 per cent. The Pyke nerfs will target his power in the mid lane position but he will get some compensation buffs to make him stronger in the bot lane.
Champions that will receive buffs this patch include:
- Pyke (support)
Zed and Riven mains will finally have a patch to look forward to since they're both included on the buff list. Kha'Zix has a 49.67 per cent win rate for the jungle role and this buff could push him back into the meta.
Sejuani was the go-to tank for the jungle before she fell out of the meta three or four patches ago. Depending on its size, a good buff could bring her back in the jungle.
