Samira and Qiyana added to Spot 11.5 enthusiast list|Dot Esports
Riot added two more League of Legends champs to next week’s enthusiast list.
Gameplay design director Mark “Scruffy” Yetter detailed the tentative Patch 11.5 modifications today, tossing Samira and Qiyana into the mix.
After Samira premiered as one of the top ADVERTISEMENT carries in season 11, Riot tuned her numbers down drastically in Spot 11.4. And after targeting virtually all her capabilities, Scruffy states she was “a bit overnerfed.”
To compensate for the harsh nerfs, Samira’s AD per level is increasing from 2.3 to three. And her Flair (Q) AD damage ratio is being rubbed in the later stages of the game, going from 110 to 120 percent at max level.
Qiyana’s win rate hovers around 49 percent in Platinum ranks and above, according to Champion.gg. However the ADVERTISEMENT assassin is getting lots of love in Patch 11.5 with big buffs to her W and ultimate. Elemental Wrath’s on-hit damage is increasing from eight to 40 to 8 to 64, and its movement speed will jump up from 10 to 13 percent at max level. Audacity (R) will have its max level damage increased from 240 to 300 also.
In addition to these tweaks, various other champs will get tuned in Patch 11.5. Senna’s Guinsoo’s Rageblade build has been devastating in solo line and pro play. Riot will cap her crit possibility conversion at 100 percent to limit the Redeemer’s scaling. Seraphine bot bring and Udyr will also be nerfed, while junglers Master Yi and Sejuani will get rubbed.
Patch 11.5 will likely go reside on Wednesday, March 3, according to the spot schedule.
