LoL Taliyah Mini-Rework 2022: New Changes, Release Date, and More

Riot Games officially confirmed Taliyah mini-rework a while back. Now the changes are here and will be available on the PBE before hitting live servers.

Taliyah was very popular on pro play for a couple of seasons after her release. Being a hard champion to play, Taliyah didn’t gain much popularity among most of the player base. However, she was still doing great in higher elo, both in the jungle and mid-lane.

Taliyah received several nerfs and buffs over the years. But she never regained her initial power and became more of an average pick in the jungle.

Across all ranks, Taliyah has a 0.7% pick rate and a 48% win rate. Though she can utilize almost all of the AP items, none of the items feels like the perfect fit. Also, she hasn’t been strong for quite some time. And Taliyah really needs a bit of a shine to bring her up to speed with modern League of Legends.

Fortunately, Riot has been pushing some great mini-rework for champions that were ‘underwhelming’ in the meta and needed some love. AhriJanna, and Rengar are some great examples whose mini-reworked landed in season 12 and are doing quite well in the meta. Swain and Olaf also got their reworks recently. But they have yet to hit live servers, so it’s hard to judge how good their reworks will be.

Riot announced Taliyah’s mini-rework at the end of last month, along with Olaf’s. And now, Riot Games Lead Champion Designer Riot August has officially shared Taliyah’s rework details.
