It's been a while since Riot Games have done anything to change up the scariest scaling mid-laner in the entire game. This time, the only changes address his QoL.

League of Legends patch 12.23 is on the way, and with so are the changes Riot Games have in mind to stabilize the meta, or bring in some new factors into the mix, which were previously disregarded.

While most of the changes focus on balancing out the jungle  and top lane roles, some quality-of-life changes are being given to the mid lane as well.

In patch 12.23, Kassadin is getting some quality of life changes that may bring this champion back into the meta:

  • Q - Null Sphere
    • Shield granted on spell cast rather than when the missile leaves his hand (small buff to make parry more reliable)
    • +20 Shield per Rank: 60/90/120/150/180 --> 80/110/140/170/200
    • -10% Shield AP Ratio: 40% --> 30%
  • E - Force Pulse
    • Spell no longer locked out and requiring nearby spell casts
    • Nearby spell casts reduce the Cooldown by 1 second
    • Cooldown: 5 --> 21/19/17/15/13

With the new Rod of Ages, and these new changes, Kassadin may just have what it takes to get a new place in the League of Legends meta.

However, with the prevalence of tanks these days, we wonder just how useful a Kassadin really can be, unless the enemy has a really good ADC that needs killing.
