A Riot Games' employee revealed the final changes we will most likely see in the 10.9 patch. It should be noted that some small adjustments could still be made before the patch goes live.
The buffs to the champions are as follows:
- Kayn - Reaping Slash (Q) cooldown reduced from 7-5 to 6-4 seconds; Blade's Reach (W) slow increased from 70 to 90 per cent
- Quinn - Blinding Assault (Q) near sight duration increased from 1.5 to 1.75 seconds
- Gnar - Mega Gnar Q cooldown refund increased from 60 to 70 per cent; Mega Gnar E damage increased from 50-190 to 80-220
- Cho'Gath - Vorpal Spikes (E) damage increased from 22-70 to 22-84
- Lissandra - Ice Shard (Q) cooldown reduced from 10-4 to 8-4 seconds
- Fiddlestick - Reap (E) damage increased from 70-190 to 70-210
Cho'Gath could see a rise in popularity in the next patch considering that he's already in a very healthy place in 10.8. The Kayn buffs could be Riot's way to redeem themselves after the recent changes to his orb gain which didn't prove to be as impactful.
The list of champions that will receive nerfs this patch is as follows:
- Trundle - Subjugate (R) cooldown increased from 100-60 to 120-80 seconds.
- Wukong - Armour reduced from 34 to 31; Crushing Blow (Q) damage decreased from 30-130 to 20-120; Warrior Trickster (W) clone damage decreased from 40-60 to 35-55 per cent.
- Nami - Base health reduced from 489 to 475; Base mana reduced from 277 to 265; passive movement speed reduced from 60 to 45
- Bard - Caretaker's Shrine (W) movement speed reduced from 50 to 30 per cent; cooldown increased from 12 to 14 seconds; Magical Journey (E) cooldown increased from 18-14 to 22-16 seconds
- Karthus - movement speed reduced from 335 to 325
Wukong currently holds one of the highest win rates both for the top lane and for the jungle position so these nerfs surely don't come as a surprise.
