Yuumi has received a new round of nerfs in League of Legends Patch 13.6, just a few weeks after her rework.

It seems that Yuumi got powerful ever since the best friend mechanic was introduced. Because of this, the developers made adjustments to a couple of her abilities so she won’t be too hard to handle when attached to an ally.

First of all, her Prowling Projectile's mana cost increases from level two onward. At max level, this ability now costs 100 mana to cast, which might make Yuumi users think twice about using it often in the late game.

On top of that, the missile’s speed is reduced. If Yuumi uses her Prowling Projectile when she’s not attached to an ally, the missile speed is now at 850, down from 1,000. If she’s attached to her best friend, the missile speed is 1,650 (from 1,900).

If there’s any consolation, the cooldown is now fixed at 6.5 seconds at all ranks instead of 7.5/7.25/7/6.75/6.5/6.25 seconds previously.

In addition, this update nerfed Yuumi’s Final Chapter ultimate significantly. One, the bonus armor and magic resistance granted by Final Chapter to her attached ally are removed. Two, the overheal shield duration is shortened from three to just 1.5 seconds.

Developers will be monitoring these changes and looking at community feedback. If there’s backlash, they might be forced to buff certain aspects of Yuumi’s kit to make up for the nerfs from this update.

Patch 13.6 brought other balancing changes as well. Dr. Mundo, for example, is now a more effective jungler because his Blunt Force Trauma now deals 200% damage to jungle monsters.
