Bel’Veth is getting some massive changes in the next patch.
Bel’Veth has been one of the most problematic champions in League of Legends for the last couple of patches. Ever since Riot buffed Stridebreaker and Goredrinker in Patch 13.17, she has become quite strong. Though she was pretty strong even before the item buffs, the buffs made her even stronger.
That said, she currently stands atop the Jungle meta with a win rate of 52%, a 6% pick rate, and a massive 25% ban rate in Solo-Queue. Her early-game dueling power, combined with her monstrous late-game scaling, makes her a tough champion to deal with. Not only that, she is also pretty hard to take down, thanks to her new Bruiser-style build and her E – Royal Maelstrom damage reduction.
Thus, Riot announced that they would be nerfing her in Patch 13.20. Here is all we know so far regarding the Bel’Veth changes.
Here are all the changes coming to Bel’Veth in Patch 13.20,
- Passive – Death in Lavender
- Bonus Attack Speed after spell cast: 25-50% >>> 20-40%
- E – Royal Maelstrom
- Damage Reduction: 70% >>> 50-70%
- Damage: 8-16(+6% AD) >>> 7-11(+8% AD)
- On-hit damage: 6% >>> 8%
- Can now Critically Strike
- R – Endless Banquet
Bel’Veth’s Passive – Death in Lavender Bonus Attack Speed is going down overall. Her E – Royal Maelstrom Damage Reduction and Damage is going down early in the game. To compensate for the Nerfs, her E-Royal Maelstrom, On-hit damage, and AD ratio are increasing slightly. Also, it can now Critically Strike. Bel’Veth’s Void Remoras are also taking a hit to their Health early-game.
In conclusion, her early-game power is decreasing significantly, but her late-game should now be much better.
The Bel’Veth Changes will hit live servers on Patch 13.20, which will be released on Wednesday, October 11, 2023.
