Three of the newest and best League of Legends Champions are in for some nerfs again when LoL patch 10.8 drops next week. Lead gameplay designer Mark Yetter revealed the dev team’s plans in a PBE preview earlier this week, and now those changes have come to the MOBA game’s testing servers, we’ve got an idea what’s in store for the Champs.
On Twitter, Yetter revealed the new update will focus on “rebalancing the ADC meta” and “Jungler personal power versus gank”, with some changes aimed at the bot lane, affecting seven of LoL’s AD carries. Among the roster of Champs seeing changes this patch are two familiar faces, with Riot already having dished out multiple Senna and Aphelios nerfs since their arrival late last year.
This time, Senna’s Passive, Absolution, is taking a hit to its soul harvesting, with the spawn rate of souls for minions she hasn’t finished off seeing a decrease to 22%, down from 25%. As for Aphelios, his stats are seeing some key changes, with the current stat level up of 3-18% bonus armour penetration changed to 2-12 lethality, and a nerf to his Q ability scaling.
