League of Legends patch 11.7 will bring some very interesting changes to popular champions like Yasuo, Hecarim, Kai'Sa, Ashe and Udyr. The patch should go live around March 31.
League of Legends lead gameplay designer Mark Yetter, better known as Riot Scruffy has revealed the balance targets for the upcoming patch 11.7. According to the new tweet, these champions will see some buffs in the next patch:
Varus has risen in popularity and his lethality build is back. He could become top tier meta depending on this upcoming buff. Braum could also become a viable support pick again considering that, apart from his buffs, many of the strongest supports are getting nered.
The list of champions that will receive nerfs this patch is as follows:
Kai'Sa and Tristana have been dominating the bot lane meta for a while now and Riot's decision to nerf them should not surprise anyone at this point. Ivern could be making a return to the jungle after all the nerfs in previous patches.
The following items will get buffed:
- Trinigy Force
- Serylda's Grudge
The following items are getting nerfed:
- Essence Reaver
- Lord Dominik's Regards
Everfrost has been the go-to item for a majority of mid lane mages over the last couple of patches. It's currently one of the most gold-efficient items in the game in terms of stats. Paired with a strong CC (Crowd Control) mage like Neeko, this item can help you immobilize champions up to four or five seconds.
