The Udyr rework is perhaps the most hyped rework of any champion in League of Legends history. So, RIot Games must ensure that the champion's win rate is holding up as well.

Previously, we knew that Udyr will become the embodiment of the League of Legends Freljord demigods, or at least will draw his abilities from them. The latest gameplay video released by Riot confirmed that fact, and the fact that the rework is amazing.

However, Udyr has one of the lowest win rates among the jungle champions in the game, currently, and in patch 12.18 Riot are giving him incredible buffs, along with some adjustments.

Though, we think the win rate is a consequence of his popularity, and being played by players that are only picking him up now and he doesn't;t need buffs, the buffs are coming regardless:

  • HP growth reduced 106 >>> 98
  • Armor growth reduced 5.2 >>> 4.7
  • [Q] Wilding Claw buffs:
    • Mana cost reduced from 45/41.6/38.2/34.8/31.4/28 >>> 20 flat
    • Now grants 50 bonus attack range for the first two attacks
    • Awakened lightning AP ratio increased 0.6% >>> 0.8% per 100 AP
    • Awakened max HP damage bAD ratio increased 6% >>> 9% per 100 bAD
    • Awakened max HP damage now deals an additional +2 - 5% max HP (based on level)

  • [W] Iron Mantle changes:
    • Life steal increased 15% flat >>> 15/16/17/18/19/20%
    • Max HP heal reduced 1.2/1.26/1.32/1.38/1.44/1.5% >>> 1.2% flat
    • Max HP shield reduced 2/2.4/2.8/3.2/3.6/4% >>> 2/2.3/2.6/2.8/3.2/3.5%
  • [R] Wingborne Storm changes:
    • Damage per second reduced 20/38/56/74/92/110 (+40% AP) >>> 20/36/52/68/84/100 (+35% AP)
    • Minion damage adjusted 50/60/70/80% >>> 40/55/70/85% (based on levels 1/6/11/16)

With the buffs to his Q, and the nerfs to his base shielding and healing, while buffing his lifesteal, we can expect Udyr to transition to a bruiser playstyle. Something Riot Games always have a hard time balancing.
