Mark Yetter, also known as Riot Scruffy, revealed a couple of changes we might see in the future. It should be noted that some of these changes won't be included in the upcoming patch 11.2.

Even though patch 11.1 went live just a couple of days ago, League of Legends' lead gameplay designer, Mark Yetter, revealed the main goals for patch 11.2 and the foreseeable future.

According to the tweet, these are the main targets for the next couple of patches:

  • Tank Mythics
  • Support item options
  • Essence Reaver alongside its users
  • Generic healing reduction (Revenous Hunter)
  • Healing limits for certain champions
  • Champions that haven't been performing in the preseason
  • Smaller champion reworks

When it comes to tank mythic, Sunfire Aegis is almost always to go-to item since it works similarly to the old Trinity Force for bruisers which provided all the necessary stats to help the champion transition to the mid and late game. The main goal here is to simply make other item options seem more viable.

Essence Reaver has gone from being the core starting item for many champions to being completely optional. Even though it got buffed twice already, champions that use this item like Xayah can't really find their place in the current meta.

The healing reduction changes were a very hot topic in recent times and Riot seemed to have finally agreed on nerfing some of its aspects. A nerf to Revenous Hunter could largely impact the current meta as many players choose this rune once they go for the Domination keystone. Champions like Olaf and Aatrox will apparently get their excessive healing tuned down a bit.

Riot listed a couple of champions that will most likely see  some love in the upcoming patches:

  • Shaco
  • Veigar
  • Senna
  • Dr. Mundo
  • Soraka
  • Singed
  • Shycvana
