While patch 12.19 will not impact World Championship 2022 in any way shape or form, it will certainly impact our SoloQ experience. So, here are all the champion buffs and nerfs we can expect in this patch.

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.

This patch is taking care of the champion that have been overly buffed in patch 12.19 , whether it was directly or indirectly.

The champion buffs in patch 12.20 will be as follows:

  • Jayce
    • [W-Melee-P] Lightning Field mana restore on-hit increased 6/8/10/12/14/16 >>> 10/12/14/16/18/20
    • [R-Ranged->Melee] Transform Mercury Hammer bonus armor and MR now has a +7.5% bAD ratio
  • Wukong (Top)
    • [R] Cyclone AD ratio per cast increased 220% >>> 275%
  • Gwen
    • [Q] Snip Snip! buffs:
    • Base damage per snip increased 10/14/18/22/26 >>> 10/15/20/25/30
    • Final snip base damage increased from 60/80/100/120/140 to 60/85/110/135/160
  • Evelynn
    • [Q] Hate Spike marked bonus damage increased 10/20/30/40/50 >>> 15/25/35/45/55
    • [W] Allure charm duration increased from 1/1.25/1.5/1.75/2 >>> 1.25/1.5/1.75/2/2.25 seconds
  • Ziggs
    • [Q] Bouncing Bomb damage increased 85/135/185/235/285 >>> 95/145/195/245/295
  • Rammus
    • [W] Defensive Ball Curl no longer self slows
    • [R] Soaring Slam buffs:
    • Dash speed growth increased 105% >>> 110%

The champion nerfs in patch 12.20, on the other hand, are:

  • Sett
    • MR reduced 32 >>> 28
    • [P] Pit Grit adjustments:
    • Regeneration reduced 0.25/0.5/1/2 >>> 0.15/0.5/1/2 (based on levels 1/6/11/16)
    • Right punch bAD ratio increased 50% >>> 55%
  • Aatrox
    • [P] Deathbringer Stance healing reduced 100% >>> 80% post-mitigation damage
  • Maokai
    • [P] Sap Magic healing reduced 4.5-12% >>> 4-10% max HP (based on level)
    • [R] Nature's Grasp cooldown increased 120/100/80 >>> 120/110/100 seconds

It seems that most of the changes in this patch will be oriented toward the top lane. Almost as if Riot Games are preparing itself to reinvent the lane completely in the preseason. If you can't recognize it, that was sarcasm and we are scared down to our bones of what the top lane will become.
