Nunu gets hotfixed with nerf to Consume

B-but that’s not really the skill everyone is afraid of ....

Riot Games

Nunu has been a menace in games since Patch 8.3 dropped, but with this hotfix, hopefully he won’t be. His initial buffs to his Blood Boil has made him way too good with scaling AP and attack speed champions like Kayle and Azir.

The hotfix is as follows:

Q - Consume

ON-HIT DAMAGE: 3/5/7/9/11 (+5 per 100 ability power) ⇒ 1/2/3/4/5 (+5 per 100 ability power)

His Consume ability now does much less damage, but that wasn’t really the issue at hand. While this will make Nunu’s strength against jungle camps dialed back, he’s still going to be a monster as a supportive tank jungler.

We’ll have to keep our eyes out and stay tuned to see how this affects Nunu’s gameplay, win rate and ban rate. Hopefully this will tone down the yeti and his rider’s disgusting win rate, but seeing how this nerf doesn’t fix the actual issue at hand, we’re just a little bit skeptical.
