LoL: Soraka, Sona, Immolate items changed with patch 10.4 hotfix

Patch 10.4 has been live since Thursday and the balancing team is already tweaking it. The aim is to buff Soraka support, nerf Sona top and reduce the impact of the Immolate effect.

LoL: Soraka, Sona, Immolate items changed with patch 10.4 hotfix

A few days after the deployment of patch 10.4, the League of Legends balancing team decided to make a few changes. Judging Soraka too impacted in her support role, they decided to buff her a bit to make sure that she would be still played in the botlane. On the other hand, Sona Top is still considered too strong, and the champion will once again be nerfed.

Finally, the items with the Immolate passive are also judged too powerful, so the pulse damage will be reduced.
