Welcome to patch 7.5, the one where we try diving into some long-term problems that have been around for awhile.
First, let’s talk marksmen. While it’s true we’ve been looking more closely at the marksman problem in recent weeks, we overstated ourselves last patch. Apologies for getting everyone’s hopes up! We are, however, continuing that work, so let’s talk about what’s on deck. This patch, we’re taking steps to address how much goddamn damage Varus, Jhin, and Miss Fortune are dealing. (The Virtuoso doesn’t show up by name, but don’t let that fool you! Our DFT power-down hits him the hardest.) We’ve also got updates to Warlord’s Bloodlust and Blade of the Ruined King, sprucing up a few options for marksmen to experiment with.
A few champions have been tearing up pro play, despite the changes they’ve seen over the last couple of patches. We’re diving deeper into their strengths in the best hands, but there’s a good chance we’ll have to hit them again.
Finally, we’re taking a look at some larger projects we’ve been putting off for awhile, whether they be champions like Kindred or Aatrox, or keystone masteries like Bond of Stone (plus the aforementioned Warlord’s and BotRK changes!) The perma-lifesteal on Warlord’s Bloodlust might be gone, but if life leeching people to death was your thing, give Aatrox a spin and tell us what you think!
That’s it for us! Check out the full details below, and we’ll see you on the Rift!
