League of Legends patch 11.5 will bring some very interesting changes to popular champions like Master Yi, Jax and Seraphine. There will also be some adjustments to a couple of underpowered items.
League of Legends lead gameplay designer Mark Yetter, better known as Riot Scruffy has revealed the balance targets for the upcoming patch 11.5.
According to the new tweet, these champions will see some buffs in the next patch:
- Master Yi
Jax has seen a slight drop in his overall top lane win rate over the last five patches. He currently holds a 49 per cent win rate and depending on how big they are, these buffs could push him over the 50 per cent milestone.
Since the preseason item overhaul, Pyke's win rate has been on the up despite a larger skill gap compared to some other supports. This buff could allow him to join the S tier when it comes to the support role.
The list of champions that will receive nerfs this patch is as follows:
The Seraphine nerf will target her carry role in the bot lane which will most likely not influence her support power. Azir has seen a rise in popularity in competitive League of Legends and that's most likely the only reason why he's getting a nerf. It's a sad day for the casual Azir mains considering that he already holds an atrocious 45.8 per cent win rate for the mid lane position.
The following list of items will get adjusted in 11.5:
- Black Cleaver
- Maw of Malmortius
- Serpent's Fang
