Aatrox buffed in a hotfix following weak release

Nearly all of his skills were buffed

Riot Games

Reworks and champion releases are typically followed by hotfixes due to the strength (or lack of) of the champion on release. Aatrox is no exception! He was just too weak, so Riot Games released a hotfix patch to buff up the Darkin dude on Wednesday evening.

His base health has increased from 580 to 600 and the damage on his Q, The Darkin Blade, has been buffed from 15/30/45/60/75 to 20/35/50/65/80 per skill level. In addition to this, his E, Umbral Dash, now dashes 50 units further and heals better. The cooldown on his ultimate, World Ender, has been shortened as well.

Hopefully these changes help Aatrox jump back into the action without making him too powerful. We’ll have to wait and see how the numbers turn out.
