What’s up LoL account users! Today we bring you a summary of Patch 6.3. This patch marks the beginning of Riot’s work on balancing AD assassins as a class (FINALLY) instead of just on a champion-by-champion basis. There’s a new assassin item, Duskblade of Draktharr, which is considered to be the first step towards creating unique itemization for assassins that deal physical damage in burst. Aside from that, a lot of items have been adjusted in this patch as well as some champion tweaking and new ability icons for Gragas, Lux and Shaco. Finally, the changes to the 2nd and 4th dragon buffs may make both teams gun for the dragon more competitively. Read on below for more details on your League of Legends account!
6.3 Xin Zhao on your League of Legends Account
There are no major reworks in this patch, but perhaps the most notable set of changes were done to Xin Zhao as he received a brand new passive effect on his W – Battle Cry. Every third attack, Xin crits for 25/37.5/50/62.5/75% of his AD in bonus damage. Battle Cry also received a 0.2 AD ratio on its heal, making AD items synergize with much more of Xin’s kit. These changes might shake up the current trend of attack speed focused items like Enchantment: Devourer and Guinsoo’s Rageblade on Xin since he has better scaling with AD than before.
6.3 Nerfs on your League of Legends Account
Fortunately, or unfortunately, significant changes have been done to some of the strongest picks in 6.2 for LoL account users. Corki had some of his Q – Phosphorus Bomb base damage cut and his rockets take longer to recharge late game. Graves’ Q – End of the Line lost a lot of damage on the second hit and there’s an added delay to its detonation on terrain. His basic attacks also no longer stun the Rift Scuttler. Poppy also received several nerfs, ranging from her damage on Q – Hammer Shock to her utility with a higher cooldown on E – Heroic Charge and a shorter knock up on R – Keeper’s Verdict when snap-cast. Finally, Ryze’s passive is now capped at 5 spell casts, shortening his windows of high DPS, but he received a sizable cooldown buff to his ultimate – Desperate Power.
6.3 Buffs your League of Legends Account
While some champions have been nerfed, buffs have been given to Gragas for this patch, whose Q – Barrel Roll now slows for the full 2 seconds when snap-cast. He also received a buff to his W – Drunken Rage, which has a shorter channel time and deals damage in a small AoE. Kog’Maw had attack speed shifted from his Q – Caustic Spittle to his W – Bio-Arcane Barrage, with his W also receiving a minimum damage of 15. Lastly, Ziggs’ R – Mega Inferno Bomb, deals much more damage to enemies caught in the center of the explosion, which should improve his team fighting when he gets a good set-up for his ultimate.
