Developer Riot Games implemented balancing adjustments in the latest update for League of Legends. Patch 12.7 brings some needed buffs to certain Champions, especially Pantheon and Wukong. Zeri and Lee Sin have been nerfed though.

Anyway, Pantheon’s Comet Spear has its length increased to 600 units while its width decreased to 120 units. His Grand Starfall ultimate now crashes 0.25 seconds faster than before.

Theoretically, Wukong is great for pro play, especially when he’s matched up with Jayce and Graves. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case in practice. Hence, the developers improved some of his abilities to make him a good pick for the top lane and jungle. The cooldown of his Crushing Blow has been reduced to 8/7.5/7/6.5/6 seconds. In addition, his Nimbus Strike’s magic damage is increased to 80/110/140/170/200 (+100% AP) and bonus magic damage against monsters to 80%.

While Pantheon and Wukong have received significant buffs, the same cannot be said for Zeri. She is one of the heavily nerfed Champions in Patch 12.7. Her Burst Fire ability, for example, now only applies on-hit effects once per cast.
