Wild Rift Patch Notes 2.4c

It’s quiet… maybe too quiet. A few balance changes for some snowballing outliers and the long awaited introduction of High Noon Lucian and Senna to the roster.

Brand Image

Brand

Brand has been an oppressive force in the mid lane since his release, so we're toning down his overall survivability and adjusting his main sources of damage. The initial speed of his ultimate is also being reduced in order to give opposing players more room to play around the ability.

CHAMPION CHANGES

LUCIAN Image

LUCIAN

After being nerfed and then his core items taking a hit too, Lucian’s ended up too weak. We’re giving him back a little power in his health and dash to put him in a more stable state.


  • BASE STATS

    • Health: 570 HP → 610 HP

  • Ability Icon

    RELENTLESS PURSUIT

    • Cooldown: 23/20/17/14s → 22/19/16/13s
RAMMUS Image

RAMMUS

Rammus is over-performing after our last set of changes which were aimed at improving his early jungle clear without making him over-bearing. Keeping within the same direction, we are giving him a tune down on his PvP damage scaling (he's a tank, after all) but also amping up his bonus damage to monsters to keep his clear relatively equal in power.


  • Ability Icon

    POWERBALL

    • Damage: 105/150/195/240 → 110/140/170/200

  • Ability Icon

    DEFENSIVE BALL CURL

    • Passive damage Armor ratio: 10% → 8%
    • Active damage Armor ratio: 15% → 12%
    • Monster damage bonus: 150% → 175%
RENGAR Image

RENGAR

Rengar’s early game is too strong at the moment. Tweaking down his early game so he can’t snowball as easily as before.


  • BASE STATS

    • Armor: 45 → 40
    • Attack Damage: 70 → 64
SONA Image

SONA

Sona’s been hitting all the high notes in recent times, but rather than impact supportive capabilities, we think trimming down her damage dealing would fit her utility identity a bit more. We’re also increasing her ultimate’s cooldown slightly to give opponents some more breathing room when dealing with her game-changing ultimate.


  • Ability Icon

    Hymn of Valor

    • Active damage: 40/80/120/160 → 40/75/110/145
    • Active AP ratio: 50% → 40%
    • Ally aura bonus damage AP ratio: 30% → 20%

  • Ability Icon

    Crescendo

    • Cooldown: 90/75/50s → 100/80/60s
TEEMO Image

TEEMO

Teemo is overperforming across the board. He’s getting some hefty general nerfs to his defenses to make him even more squishable.


  • BASE STATS

    • Health regen: 7.5 → 6
    • Health per level: 115 HP → 105 HP
    • (Health at level 15: 2180 HP → 2040 HP)
    • Armor: 35 → 30
    • Armor per level: 4.3 → 3.9
    • (Armor at level 15: 96 → 85)
