Patch 3.5a brought in several balance changes that will buff, nerf, and adjust champions and items. Here are all the details.
It's been a couple of weeks since the release of the massive patch 3.5 update in Wild Rift. We saw the introduction of three new champions, several novel items and runes, as well as changes to the jungling system.
We're in arguably one of the best periods in Wild Rift history. But, Riot - being the meticulous devs that they are - has noticed a few things that needed changing. So they released a new patch, patch 3.5a, that came out on November 30.
Let's go over all the balance changes that came in patch 3.5a.
Wild Rift Patch 3.5a - Champion Buffs
Nine champions were buffed in patch 3.5a. The biggest standout here is Kayn who got a significant increase in all of his abilities. He'll no doubt perform better as a Jungler. So will other fellow Junglers like Diana, Rengar, and Warwick.
Here are the champion buffs in detail:
Wild Rift Patch 3.5a - Champion Nerfs
Seven champions were nerfed in patch 3.5a. Big nerfs were handed down to Junglers like Graves, Gwen, Kha'zix, and Rammus. They were the greatest beneficiaries of the previous patch's changes that made jungling easier for players, so it was expected that they were going to get their power curbed.
One of the newest Wild Rift champions, Aatrox, also saw his abilities significantly nerfed.
