As usual, we've got the League of Legends patch preview from Riot Games as we head into Patch 11.14. Unlike the 11.13, this patch doesn't have a ton of changes. However, both Irelia and Lillia are getting changes which could be deemed mini-reworks.
In terms of item buffs, there are only have a few buffs planned and they're going the way of Dead Man's Plate; an item which is usually built on tanks. To go with this, champions like Darius and Taric will receive buffs, likely putting a smile on Fnatic's face. The European team beat G2 Esports this past weekend with Taric, utilising his ultimate to good effect.
When it comes to nerfs, we have Karma. While she hasn't shown up in professional levels of play, the same can't be said for SoloQ. Also, Akali will get the same treatment alongside Nocturne, each with a more professional approach as they have a high presence especially in the regional leagues.
As always, these aren't concrete and still could change before the patch deploys. This time, we don't seem to have been provided with numbers, so this is more of an overview of the changes to expect.
Buffs to Items
- Dead Man's Plate
- Nocturne (lane sustain)
- Xin Zhao
- Dr. Mundo (top lane/jungle)
- Irelia (professional level)
- Lillia (professional level)
- Tahm Kench (support/top)
