Riot has gifted us with a teeny tiny patch to help us through this three-week patch cycle. There isn’t much going on, but it’s worth checking out, as this all went live Tuesday.
Caitlyn, Tristana and Varus all got buffs to their kits, whether its a love tap on their attack speed or just general amount of damage. These buffs might not get these marksmen back to where they were before the big item changes, but it should help them out.
Brawler’s Glove was also made a smidgen cheaper, but making it into a Zeal costs the same, so don’t celebrate yet.
Aatrox has gotten a buff to his Q hitbox size, and Nocturne and Taliyah have both gotten nerfed.
Like we said, there isn’t too much beef to this tiny patch, but it should help balance things out until the next patch in two weeks.
For Riot’s full notes, you can check them out here.
