Nashor and Rift Herald are in the spotlight after the release of patch 8.9 for League of Legends.
In the new patch, released on the 2nd of May, some statistics of these two troublemakers have been changed for the good.
Just as a game started, the first objective for many teams was to secure the Baron kill. The players seem too dependent on their champion in the top lane to tank the Baron damage. To overcome this problem, the Nashor base damage at 20 minutes of play will go from 400 to 285.
In compensation, his area damage will be increased (60 + 0.1 AD per second → 120 + 0.3 AD per second). The reason for doing so is to stop teams from getting early Baron Kill as their tank takes all the damage. Now with the increase of AOE damage of Baron, more items on other champions will be required for killing it early.
It also came into attention that Baron could be eliminated quite quickly on most occasions. It will often prevent any possibility of intervening and starting a fight or simply stealing the Baron. As a result, the Baron’s basic health points will be increased and he will now start with 9,000 health instead of 6,400.
This should give the audience some exciting fights around the Baron pit in competitive games. This could be the most important rework in the professional scene, possibly changing the course of the game in a matter of seconds.
For now, the Rift Herald is not as useful as the publisher would like it to be. Several changes have been made on the Herald just like on his Rift friend Nashor. First, the Herald will receive 150 less damage from turrets. His damage to the turrets will be increased from 25% Health +150 to 40% HP + 1,500.
To balance it, the damage that the Herald will take when we hit him on his eye has been increased. The damage taken has been reworked from 20% of his HP to 40%.
These nerfs have been made on a different scale to both champions. However, one thing is certain that these changes might not make much of a difference in the late game impact of the two. Warwick is a dominant character in the jungle and Kai’Sa has been quite popular in competitive games.
The champions have been either picked on banned in almost every game. Their nerfs are small, but we hope that the changes will make it easier to play against them.
The latest infamous skin to hit the store is the legendary Evelynn skin. Many people did not want the release of this skin. Only time will be able to tell us if it will be a success or if it will rot in the store.
Now you can change the cover of your LoL profile. You can put all of your expensive skins on the cover. This will help us to divert our attention from the hard struggles of Bronze V.
