Heartsteel Nerfs for ARAM
Both Riot MaxW3ll and Riot Phroxzon have tweeted about the change coming to ARAM. Heartsteel has been a problem in ARAM games. Thus, changes will be as follows.
- Heartsteel Permanent Health Gain (ARAM Only): 10% damage dealt >>> 5% damage dealt.
Since ARAM is a game mode where everyone is forced to fight each other head-on, Heartsteel is a bit of a problem. Utilizing the item properly has been too good for players. Thus, Riot is going to scale it down.
The changes will be applied to League of Legends in Patch 12.23, which will be released on December 7th, 2022.
