League of Legends - Rell, the Iron Maiden, is supposed to have great synergy with Samira, in theory

Many of you may wonder, does rell still exist in League of Legends? The answer is yes, she does, and there are even those who main her. It's exactly them that helped Riot buff,a nd not accidentally nerf Rell.

Rell is one of the forgotten League of Legends champions, for whom Riot Games tried a new approach at creating hype, and ultimately failed, making her pick rate one of the lowest in the game.

In patch 12.17 , however, they intended to buff Rell, and give her a chance to be picked up by the support mains. However, even Riot were unaware of how to do it.

"Rell has been out of the spotlight for quite some time now so we’re giving her some small quality of life buffs to help her get back on her iron steed."

  • W - Ferromancy: Crash Down Move Speed While Dismounted: 250 ⇒ 280
  • E - Attract and Repel Cooldown: 18/16.25/14.5/12.75/11 seconds ⇒ 13 seconds

Reddit League of Legends - What is the deal with Rell? League of Legends - Maybe a mini rework is in order for Rell?

Initially, however, these changes were supposed to have Rell's E cooldown be a flat 15 seconds, which one of the outspoken Rell mains on Reddit pointed out would result in an overall nerf to the champion. After all, this would give Rell's late game an inconvenience when engaging and peeling for her carry.

For the first time in a while, it would seem, Riot Game took the advice of their player base, and lowered the mentioned cooldown by two more seconds, allowing her to be a force to be reckoned with in the early game, while not making it too oppressive during the late game.
