Every time a champion has been at the top of the game half as long as Janna has, Riot have nerfed them into the ground. It should now be Janna's turn, and yet she is getting buffed.

Janna is a League of Legends support, which Riot Games reworked this season, and made her into the best, and most consistent, support champion in the game for the last 7 patches, at the very least.

Even now, her win rate is sky high, with her being able to work well with every ADC, and her peeling potential out of this world. However, in patch 12.14 Riot Games are targeting her shielding and healing, as they are doing all across the board, including items as well:

    • SHIELD AMOUNT 65/90/115/140/165 ⇒ 75/100/125/150/175
    • HEAL PER SECOND 90/145/200 (+45% AP) ⇒ 100/150/200 (+50% AP)

Riot Games League of Legends - Nami, The Tidecaller League of Legends - Nami's core items are also getting nerfed, and yet, no buffs for her

In their explanation, Riot Games take a more general explanation of their approach to the entire patch, which seems encapsulated in the Janna nerfs:

"In this patch, one of our objectives is to nerf overtuned healing and shielding champions and items. In an effort to bring healing systems back in line, we needed to take a little bit of the wind out of Janna’s sails since her shield and heal power stood out compared to the other item stats we’re updating this patch. Shifting her power more into her base heals and shield should help keep her more in line with her enchanter friends."

Even with the nerfs Janna is getting to her core items, with the buffs to her base sats, taking into account her support nature, Janna will still be one of the best supports in the game, as she was before. We just wonder, when are the next Janna skins coming, after all, a buff out of nowhere seems to indicate that, doesn't it?
