Wild Rift Patch Notes 2.4d

The final balance patch of the 2.4 cycle addresses Zed’s dominance and we’ve got some adjustments coming for some of our other support outliers: Blitzcrank, Thresh, and Senna. We’re laying low in this final balance patch before the release of 2.5 in October!

CHAMPION CHANGES

BLITZCRANK Image

BLITZCRANK

While other tank supports have seen wins from the 2.4c buffs to Zeke’s Convergence, Blitzcrank is still performing below expectations, particularly for skilled players. We are reducing the cost and increasing the power of Blitzcrank’s mobility tool to give skilled robot pilots more room to work with.


  • Ability Icon

    Overdrive

    • Mana: 75 → 50
    • Movement speed bonus: 70/75/80/85% → 75/80/85/90%
DR. MUNDO Image

DR. MUNDO

Mundo has been particularly dominant in the jungle, so we’re slowing his clear speed and the health regen he gains from (Ult) Sadism. We’re also increasing his health regen per level to ensure he remains a solid pick in the Baron Lane.


  • BASE STATS

    • Health regen per level: 0.81 → 1.07
      • Health regen at level 15: 21 → 24

  • Ability Icon

    Infected Cleaver

    • Maximum damage vs monsters: 270/330/390/450 → 125/200/275/350

  • Ability Icon

    Sadism

    • Total health regen: 60/85/110% → 50/75/100%
Senna Image

Senna

Senna currently outshines other marksman champions in Elite level play due to her powerful scaling with Mist stacks. To bring her in line with other marksmen, we are reducing the rate that Mist Wraiths spawn when Senna kills a minion.


  • Ability Icon

    ABSOLUTION

    • Mist Wraith spawn rate on minion kills: 7% → 3%
THRESH Image

THRESH

We’ve been cautiously buffing Thresh over time due to his high-skillcap gameplay, but he is still performing below our expectations. We are giving him a bit more reason to care about collecting souls with some extra basic attack damage.


  • Ability Icon

    FLAY

    • (Passive) Bonus basic attack damage granted per soul: 1 → 2
Xayah Image

Xayah

It’s been a struggle for Xayah on recent patches, particularly with changes to the Dragon Lane metagame and nerfs to her synergy with Rakan. We’re giving her some additional AD per level in order to bolster her damage throughout the game, particularly later on where she should have more success.


  • BASE STATS

    • Attack Damage per level: 2.65 → 3.6
      • Attack Damage at level 15: 102 → 115
ZED Image

ZED

Zed is overperforming, even when he doesn’t land his shurikens. We’re cutting down on his consistent damage in order to make Zed’s success more about landing the right spells at the right time.


  • Ability Icon

    Shadow Slash

    • Base damage: 70/105/140/175 → 70/100/130/160
    • Bonus AD ratio: 80% → 70%
