Kha’zix, Sejuani, and Alistar are getting some buffs after quite some now while Riot is also giving some major changes to Pyke.
Today, League of Legends’ lead gameplay designer Mark “Scruffy” Yetter previewed the patch 10.14. And it seems like champions like Kha’zix, Sejuani, and Alistar are finally getting buffs. And on top of that, Riot is also planning to nerf mid-Pyke while buffing him for the support role.
Kha’zix Buff Patch 10.14
- Base health: 572.8 >>> 575
- Q Isolation multiplier: 2 >>> 2.2
Kha’zix is one of the few champions in League of Legends who has not received any kind of changes in season 10. This eventually made him an average jungler, as he has been maintaining that 50% win rate mark for most of the season but his pick rate has always been below 7%.
His presence in the Pro games is pretty much non-existence as well. As a result, Riot is planning to give him some buffs in the upcoming patch 10.14.
Sejuani Buff Patch 10.14
- Damage: 40-240 >>> 55-255
- Cooldown on target: 10-8 >>> 8
- Ally buff range: 1100 >>> 1300
Because of how overpowered she was back in season 8 and 9 pro games, Riot simply gutted her into the abyss with all these nerfs over time. Her current state in the ranked games is so bad that she has not passed that 48% win rate mark for the last couple of patches.
Compared to season 8 where she was picked 735 times in pro games, in season 10 she is just been picked 148 times. As her kit perfectly fit in the pro games, ahead of the world patch Riot is testing some buffs on patch 10.14.
Alistar Buff Patch 10.14
- Q Cooldown: 17-13 >>> 15-11
Even with the buff on patch 10.5, Alistar’s situation didn’t improve at all, as he is still sitting around a 3% pick rate. His presence in the pro games is relatively low as well. As a result, Riot is planning to give him some buff on patch 10.14.
Pyke Changes Patch 10.14
- MR per level: 1.5 >>> 1.25
- Armor per level: 5 >>> 3.5
- Q mana cost: 70 >>> 55-75
- Q cooldown: 12-8 >>> 10-8
- Q damage: 75-275 >>> 85-285
A few days ago Riot Scruffy revealed their goals for Pyke where they mentioned they will buff Pyke support in a way that he will be impactful in the support role but will not become overpowered again in the solo lane. And today, they revealed their complete plan for patch 10.14 Pyke changes.
On patch 10.14, Riot is nerfing his magic resistance per level by 0.25 and armor per level by 1.5. Currently, on patch 10.13, mid-Pyke has the highest win rate in League of Legends with an astonishing 54%. And with this base stats nerf solo lane Pyke will definitely lose some of its dominance.
On the other hand, Riot is planning to buff his Q’s mana, cooldown, and damage so that, Pyke can shine once again in the support role.
