Zeri changes are now live on League of Legends' PBE server. This mini rework is set to hit Leagues' live servers with the upcoming patch 12.23. The new patch is set to release on December 7, 2022.

There hasn't been a champion this year that has experienced the turmoil as Zeri has in League of Legends  2022. Riot  had to intervene, and they nerfed her. After that, Zeri  was one of the worst, if not the worst, champions in terms of solo queue win rate.

Because of that, Riot decided to make some changes to this AD carry champion. Some of Zeri's skills are undergoing substantial alterations as Riot plans for her to be played differently than in the past.

Zeri's base stats are improved. Now she won't rely so much on her abilities. Here are all the base stats changes:

  • Movement Speed: 325 > 330
  • Base Attack Damage: 50 > 53
  • Base Armor: 20 > 24
  • Base Health: 600 > 630
  • Attack Speed Ratio: 0.568 > 0.625
