Tier 3 Champions


"Spell Damage: 225/450/900 ⇒ 250/450/900"

25 extra damage early is nice, but it’s probably not enough to push Ezreal into being a champion you want to pick early. If 6 Glacial becomes a thing or you’re going 4 Rangers, I could see this maybe making Ezreal more attractive than, say, a Vayne or Varus, but otherwise this is fairly meh.


"Spell Bonus Attack Speed: 40/60/80% ⇒ 35/50/100%"

I really like this change because Karma is a super strong unit in the early and mid game, but she’s incredibly weak in the late game when she can be added to Mystic (but not necessarily with Lunar) comps as a shield bot for a carry. This should raise her priority if you can three-star her, as opposed to getting like a 2-star Nami or Janna.


"Passive Healing: 40/45/50% ⇒ 50/60/70%"

You hear that kids? That’s the sound of a Blender whirring up in the background. With the buff to Blademasters and them already being strong, I could see Blender Nocturne becoming hyper strong again…if you’re able to find a Spatula.

Tier 4 Champions


"Spell Healing: 20/30/100% ⇒ 25/35/200%"

This is a fantastic change because not only is Janna’s healing super unreliable (it depends on where your ally units are situated) it’s rare she gets off more than one ult per game. I think they could have actually gone a bit heavier on this (maybe 50% at 2-stars), but for now Janna will still likely be a great Mystic and Cloud comp staple.


"Attack Damage: 65 ⇒ 70"

Twitch never really became that big hyper-carry that a lot of people expected and I don’t think 5 extra damage is going to change that. Poison/Ranger and Poison/Predator comps are both still going to be good in Patch 10.5, so you’ll see a fair bit of Twitch. This will just make those comps stronger.
