League of Legends received a new update on Wednesday to release a small number of changes for champions only with no item adjustments or other features to speak of. The update followed Riot Games’ weeklong break and is technically considered more of a mid-patch update than an actual full-sized patch. It took aim at the game’s newest champion, Yone, while nerfing and buffing some other champions who’ve been standing out in positive or negative ways since the last update.
Yone’s the most recent champion to be added to League, so it makes sense that he’d be one of the ones affected by the update. The patch nerfed both his primary Mortal Steel ability to take away some of its late-game power and reduced the effectiveness of his ult’s lifesteal capabilities.
The other changes included in the update that buffed and nerfed champions besides Yone can be found below.
