League of Legends Patch 12.12: Champion Buffs

League of Legends Update 12.12
League of Legends Update 12.12 Riot Games

League of Legends Patch 12.12 is finally here. Some champions got hit hard after the Durability update. So, the developers are showing some love in this update to a few champions through buffs.

Here, we will focus on the buffs for Amumu and Annie.

Amumu

Amumu is a great engage champion that can be played in the jungle and support roles. This update buffed his presence in the support role with lower mana costs on Bandage Toss (Q) and higher damage on his ultimate Curse of the Sad Mummy (R), which is an amazing crowd control for winning team fights.

Bandage Toss (Q)

  • Mana Cost: From 70 to 30/35/40/45/50.

The mana cost for Bandage Toss was 70 at every level. Now, it starts at 30 and maxes out at 50. This is a great change because playing Amumu doesn't have a lot of mana and is extremely difficult without the help of the Blue Buff, which is exclusive to junglers.

Curse of the Sad Mummy (R)

  • Damage: From 150/250/350 (+80% AP) to 200/300/400 (+80% AP).

The base damage on Amumu’s Ultimate has been increased by 50 at every rank. This change should give him a bit more power in the early game to help the bot lane snowball.

Annie

Annie is an easy-to-play burst champion that has greatly fallen off since the Durability update. She is unable to burst most enemies, which leaves her vulnerable after using all her abilities. In this update, Annie’s Disintegrate (Q) has received a small change to its scaling value, which should open up more options for her build path.

  • Damage: From 80/115/150/185/220 (+75% AP) to 80/115/150/185/220 (+80% AP).

Annie’s Ultimate Summon: Tibbers (R) is getting tankier this patch. Tibber’s health, armor, and magic resistance have gone up by a bit to make sure it stays alive longer.

  • Base Health: From 1200/2100/3000 to 1300/2200/3100.

  • Base Armor and Magic Resistance: From 30/50/70 to 30/60/90.

Annie's buffs should let her do more even after the Durability update. With tankier Tibber and better Q can do much in bursting squishy targets if properly played.

Similarly, Blitzcrank, Ivern, Seraphine, and a few other champions received buffs, and you can read more about them here.
