Balance Updates

Aside from the newest and probably the coolest champion in LoL, Lead Gameplay Designer Mark “Scruffy” Yetter also shared a set of new champion changes for patch 10.22. Annie, Nassus, and Brand are among the champions being targeted.

Annie will have her Molten Shield (E) updated to help her further protect her allies during extreme teamfights. For Brand, Riot will upgrade his Blaze (Passive), Conflagration (E), and Pyroclasm (R). Nasus, meanwhile, will receive buffs. His Fury of The Sands will be downgraded to prevent him from overpowering the abilities of other champions.
