Riot Games to nerf Jinx, Thresh, and Bard while buffing Zyra and Yuumi in League of Legends patch 11.10.

League of Legends’ Gameplay Design Director Mark “Scruffy” Yetter has previewed patch 11.10 today. And it seems, bot lane yet again getting a lot of attention from Riot Games.

In the upcoming patch, one of the most picked ADCs Jinx is getting nerfs along with two other popular supports Thresh and Bard. On the other hand, two support champions Zyra and Yuumi will receive some buffs.

Jinx Nerf Patch 11.10

  • Base stats:
    • Armor: 28 >>> 26
  • R:
    • Execute damage against Epic Monsters is capped at 800

Over the last few patches, Riot has nerfed most of the ADC champions to the ground. But Jinx was the only ADC to survive from Riot’s radar till now.

As a result, Jinx currently has the second-highest pick rate among ADC champions in League of Legends, only behind Kai’Sa. Jinx now has a massive 52.35% win rate in Plat+ Elo while having a 25.8% pick rate.

Therefore, in the upcoming patch 11.10, Riot is taking away some of her strength to make her “balanced” in the current meta.

Thresh Nerf Patch 11.10

  • Base stats:
    • Health: 561 >>> 530
    • HP per level: 93 >>> 95

Despite getting two back-to-back nerfs in patch 11.7 and 11.8, Thresh still remained as one of the most popular support champions. Currently, Thresh has a 51.26% win rate in Plat+ Elo while having a 20.6% pick rate. Moreover, he also has a 19.2% ban rate as well.

As his ban rate is even higher in the high Elo, whopping 45.6% in Challenger ladder, Riot is nerfing Thresh is patch 11.10 once again.

Bard Nerf Patch 11.10

  • Passive:
    • Damage: 40 (+12 per 5 chimes collected) >>> 30 (+12 per 5 chimes collected)

Just like Thresh, Bard is also very popular among support mains because of his insane playmaking potential. He currently has the highest win rate in the support role with a 5.9% pick rate.

Even though he did receive a lot of nerfs in season 10, he remained untouched in season 11. However, in patch 11.10 he will receive his first nerf in season 11.

Zyra Buff Patch 11.10

  • Passive:
    • Vine Lasher Slow: 25% >>> 30%
