Miss Fortune

"W – Strut Maximum Bonus Movement Speed: 60/70/80/90/100 -> 50/60/70/80/90"

The fairy tale story continues as the often forgotten and ignored Miss Fortune remains the strongest ADC of 2020 despite several nerfs hitting her in Season 10 so far. She currently possesses a 51.80% win rate, but will it stick after this nerf?

Strut is an excellent tool for increasing DPS and roaming around the map, particularly during early game rotations and recalls. Decreasing the ability’s maximum movement speed is the perfect way to reduce MF’s presence across Summoner’s Rift and punish her for mistimed recalls or being caught out of position.


"Q – Javelin Toss Damage Ratio: 40% ability power (120% maximum) -> 50% ability power (150% maximum)"

Is sniper Nidalee back?

We will see over the coming days as her Javelin Toss AP ratio has been increased to 0.5, up to a maximum of 1.5. The Bestial Huntress is struggling in the jungle right now, as evidenced by her 49.59% win rate, but that could all change if Nidalee players can reliably hit spears from range.


"E – Spell Shield Mana Restore: 80/95/110/125/140 -> 110/120/130/140/150"

A wide range of champions have had their chance to shine in the bot lane during Season 10 so far, but Sivir has yet to show her face. Her 49.59% win rate on Patch 10.9 illustrates her need for buffs which will be arriving with Patch 10.10.

Spell Shield will now restore 110 mana instead of 80 mana, which improves the Bounty Hunter’s sustain and allows her to clear waves and poke more reliably during the early game, provided you can soak up abilities with her E.


"Q – Starcall Base Damage: 75/110/140/180/215 -> 85/120/150/190/225 W – Astral Infusion Health Cost Reduction: 60/70/80/90/100% -> 80/85/90/95/100%"

Soraka might return to the support role on Patch 10.10 after a brief spell in the top lane earlier in the year. Increased poke damage from Starcall, combined with the reduced health cost of Astral Infusion (when rejuvenated), could see Soraka skyrocket to the support S tier over the next few weeks.

These two changes will also increase the gap between novice Soraka mains and expert Soraka mains as the best players will know how to utilize every aspect of her kit to maximum efficiency, especially in lane.


"Base Stats Health Growth: 90 -> 85 W – Bastion Bonus Armor: 10/12.5/15/17.5/20% of Taric’s armor -> 10/11/12/13/14% of Taric’s armor"

Speaking of the support S tier, Taric has found his way into it over recent patches and his overbearing 52.67% win rate needs to be pulled back. The Shield of Valoran is unkillable, has endless heals, and offers unparalleled utility through all stages of the game, and his numbers are a bit too overpowered right now.

That’s where these two defensive stat nerfs come in. From Patch 10.10, Taric will have a smaller health pool and benefit from less bonus armor when using Bastion, making it much easier to shut down the support and blow him up if he’s caught out of position.

Twisted Fate

"Base Stats Attack Damage: 49.954 -> 52 Armor: 20.542 -> 21 R – Destiny Cost: 150 mana -> 100 mana"

It’s a small base AD buff for Twisted Fate which could allow him to duel with some of the more meta mid laners on Patch 10.10. On top of that, Destiny will see a reduction in its mana cost to bring it in line with the majority of ultimates in League of Legends.


"Base Stats Movement Speed: 345 -> 350 Health: 593.32 -> 594 Mana: 270.4 -> 271 Mana Regen: 7.506 -> 7.5"

Four base stat buffs for Udyr, three of which are just ironing out some irregular numbers, and the main one being a +5 movement speed buff.

We all saw what happened to Karthus after his movement speed was reduced by 5 on Patch 10.9, perhaps this will have the opposite effect on Udyr who could utilize it to clear his jungle quickly and get in range for Bear Stance stuns easily.
