Path 12.10 has been the largest LEague of Legends patch in the past year, including the preseason one, if it could be called that. However, it seems that Riot still have some tweaking to do.

Diana is a jungler who has, only recently, been dominating the role with an either pick or ban playstyle. If you're on a team against her, barring a large skill or player team disparity, you have already lost, with the reverse being true, as well.

The durability update might have made some changes to his, though with Diana not being a pure assassin, it was bound to be a half-hearted measure at best. Now, not even that is afforded as Diana is getting a buff with the recent hotfix:

  • W - Base shield 25/40/55/70/85 ⇒ 40/55/70/85/100
  • E - Magic damage 40/60/80/100/120 (+40% AP) ⇒ 50/70/90/110/130 (+45% AP)

This will make Diana's early game skirmishes more powerful, while also affording her a healthier, and quicker, jungle clear with better late-game scaling.

And, while it reams to be seen where she will end up in the meta, as it takes time for things to fall into place with such a big change, it will likely be close to her previous dominance of the top rankings.

She was not the only one to be afforded this treatment either, with Yuumi getting a buff as well. Though, admittedly, Diana is the only one out of the buffed champions that we feel is not needing a buff at this moment.
