League of Legends Patch 12.5 Hullbreaker Changes and Champion Adjustments Riot Games

League of Legends Update 12.5 is here, and it makes some changes to Hullbreaker which has been a massive nuisance in the top lane. Kennen and Samira will be getting some attention this patch, as they have been performing pretty poorly in solo queue. Don’t forget to spend your Prestige Points as the points system will expire with the launch of Update 12.6. and you won’t have the chance to spend it once it’s gone.

Hullbreaker Changes

Most players have started to build Hullbreaker as their first item at the top lane because of its gold efficiency and amazing stats. This item combined with ranged champions made it a nightmare for melee champions. So, the developers have nerfed its passive for ranged champions only. The bonus armor and magic resist for ranged champions who have Hullbreaker are now 10-30 (levels 1-18). The minion’s bonus armor and magic resist are reduced to 30-90 (levels 1-18) for ranged champions only. Melee champions still enjoy the stats before this patch.

Champion Buffs

Samira has been underperforming in solo queue for a long time because of her range and terrible base stats. She would take too long to get strong, and by then the game would have already been decided. In this patch, Samira gets some buffs like increased health growth from 88 to 94 and increased armor growth from 3 to 3.5. Samira’s ultimate, Inferno Trigger will have a lower cooldown to make it more spammable in fights. The ultimate’s cooldown has been reduced from eight to five seconds.
