Pyke was hotfixed and buffed due to his steep learning curve

A sprinkle of buffs among his base stats is all

Riot Games

Patch 8.11 dropped on Thursday, but a same-day hotfix was deployed later that night. Pyke ended up little bit harder for players to pick up than Riot thought he would be.

The Bloodharbor Ripper got a little boost to his base stats to help him do a little better.

BASE HEALTH REGEN 5 health per 5 seconds ⇒ 7 health per 5 seconds

BASE MANA 380 ⇒ 415

BASE ARMOR 42 ⇒ 45

BASE ATTACK DAMAGE 60 ⇒ 62

That being said, Pyke should be a little bit easier for players trying to get used to the assassin-support now. These changes aren’t huge, but they’ll definitely make his laning phase a tad more tolerable and a little less mana starved.
