With most preseason changes already unveiled, this next patch will also mark the end of the current season, bringing lighter but substantial balance changes with it. There are also the long-awaited ranked rewards for all those who reach Gold before the season ends.
Without further to do, let’s take a look all everything coming in patch 11.22.
Patch 11.22: All balance changes
Following the same trend as with patch 11.20, League’s next update features some fixes towards a handful of champions, as confirmed on the preview released by Riot Phlox, one of the designers on the Summoner’s Rift team.
Starting with the buffs, the biggest ones will be coming for Riven, whose Ki Burst’s damage and Valor’s shield will be increased at all levels, and for Kayn as his Reaping Slash’s AD Ratio and Umbral Trespass’ HP Ratio is set to be powered up, but only for his Rhaast form.
Akali’s passive damage will also be increased in flat, and %AP stats, Kalista’s and Varus’s E Ratio will be upgraded from 60% to 70% and 90%, respectively. Lastly, all of Renekton’s stun changes from patch 11.21 will be reverted.
As for the nerfs, Qiyana will be in the spotlight this time, as her base HP and HP per level will be decreased drastically, and both her Elemental Wrath / Edge of Ixtal and Audacity will have a lower AD bonus and a slightly bigger flat AD stat.
Graves’ Pellet Crit damage will change from 30% to 20%, Kha’Zix’s Taste Their Fear bonus AD and Iso bonus AD Ratio will be reduced at all levels.
Yuumi’s Zoomies move speed ratio will change from 10%/100 AP to 6%/100 AP, with its heal being decreased at all tiers. Maokai’s passive heal will be changed from 7% to 5% at first, and the damage of his Twisted Advance will be reduced by 10 points.
The last change of the season will come for the Goredrinker, which after being hardly nerfed at the last patch. Its HP bonus will be increased from 400 to 450, and its Omnivamp stat will change from 8% to 10%.
