League of Legends’ Update 12.21 nerfs three champions: Bel’Veth, Blitzcrank, and Miss Fortune. These champions are seen having high pick and ban rates across the game, and this patch should drop those rates significantly. Here, we will focus on the nerfs for Bel’Veth and Miss Fortune.


Bel’Veth is doing exceptionally well in the jungle because of her insane snowballing potential and amazing kit for fights. In this update, developers nerfed her Royal Maelstrom (E) ability and Endless Banquet (R) ultimate, which should make her slightly weaker.

Royal Maelstrom (E)

  • Cooldown: From 22/20.5/19/17.5/16 to 24/22.5/21/19.5/18.

The Royal Maelstrom ability is amazing for fights and farming as she’s able to tank most of the damage while dealing damage in a radius. So, developers increased the cooldowns across all ranks to make her jungle clear harder. This shouldn’t affect her fighting potential much because the original cooldowns are already high.

Endless Banquet (R)

  • Void Remora Health: From 50/60/70% to 40/50/60% of minion’s maximum health.

Her ultimate is quite annoying because she spawns her own minions after killing lane minions. The worst part is that Bel’Veth’s minions take some time to kill because they have a decent amount of health. From this update onward, the minions will have 10% lower health across all ranks of her ultimate to make them slightly squishy.

Miss Fortune

Miss Fortune is one of the best contenders in the bot lane since her adjustments in Update 12.17. In Update 12.21, developers adjusted both Make It Rain and Bullet Time (R) abilities.

Make It Rain (E)

  • Magic Damage: From 70/100/130/160/190 (+100% AP) to 70/100/130/160/190 (+120% AP).

  • Slow: From 50% (+4% per 100 AP) to 40% (+6% per 100 AP).

Miss Fortune’s slow on her E was reduced from 50% to 40% to make her laning phase slightly harder. The AP build, on the other hand, will deal more damage as the scaling ratio is a little bit buffed.

Bullet Time (R)

  • Damage per Wave: From 75% AD + 20% AP to 75% AD + 25% AP.

Similarly, her ultimate will deal more damage while building AP. So, if you like playing the AP build in ARAM or other modes, you are in luck.
