Patch 12.18 is already out on the PBE, and it features the new skin line Riot Games revived via player vote. The buffs and nerfs, though, are what interest us the most, and in particular their details.

League of Legends patch changes must first be tested on the Public Beta Environment servers, before going live. So, due to that, we have the option of knowing which champs Riot Games are buffing and nerfing, before the patch goes live.

There is also the option of trying out the new skins, of the Fright Night skin line , for free once they go live on the rest of the servers. However, the details regarding the buffs and nerfs interest us more.

The full champion buffs in patch 12.18 will be:

  • ​Ashe
    • [Q] Ranger's Focus bonus AS increased from 20/25/30/35/40% >>> 25/32.5/40/47.5/55%
  • Thresh
    • HP per level increased 115 >>> 120
    • [E-A] Flay base damage increased 65/95/125/155/185 >>> 75/110/145/180/215
  • Lee Sin
    • HP per level increased 99 >>> 105
    • [W2] Iron Will life steal and spell vamp increased 5/9.5/14/18.5/23% >>> 5/10.5/16/21.5/27%
  • Nasus
    • [W] Wither AS slow increased 50% >>> 75% of the movespeed slow
    • [R] Fury of the Sands cooldown reduced 120 flat >>> 110/100/90 seconds

League of Legends - There is a reason this Miss Fortune skin had to be changed League of Legends - Enjoy the S-rank Miss Fortune, it was good while it lasted

On the other hand, the full champion nerfs in League of Legends patch 12.18 will be:

  • Miss Fortune
    • HP per level reduced 107 >>> 103
    • AD per level reduced 2.7 >>> 2.4

  • Kayn (Rhaast)
    • [Q-Darkin Slayer] Reaping Slash max HP damage bAD ratio reduced 5% >>> 3.5% per 100 bAD
