League of Legends Patch 11.2 Item Changes: Imperial Mandate Nerf, Turbo Chemtank Buff, and More

League of Legends Patch 11.2 is once again going to feature changes to multiple items.

League of Legends’ 2021 preseason was all about the new Mythic items and item overhaul. With so many new changes some of the items were “outclassing” others by quite a margin.

Riot however brought multiple balance updates in the preseason and later in patch 11.1 to balance things out. Tank Mythic items received multiple back to back nerfs and later Assassin items also took a hit. With the downfall of those items, Galeforce, Imperial Mandate, and some others saw a huge influx in pick rate.

On the other hand, Mythic items like Frostfire Gauntlet, Turbo Chemtank hardly have any champions who are benefited from these items.

And now, League of Legends’ Gameplay Design Director, Mark “Scruffy” Yetter has previewed LoL patch 11.2. And it seems, they are bringing in another major items changes featuring Hextech Rocketbelt, Galeforce, Kraken Slayer, and Imperial Mandate nerf while Turbo Chemtank, Frostfire Gauntlet, Gargoyle Stoneplate, and Essence Reaver are set to receive buffs.

Furthermore, seven other items will also receive some sort of balance adjustments in patch 11.2.

“Buffing up options outside of Sunfire for tanks (and giving support tanks more choices),” Riot Scruffy said. “Shurelia’s shift to make it attractive to enchanter/mage supports.”
