'League Of Legends' Patch 7.4: Riot Remembered That Cho'Gath Exists

fqa
Festive Queen Anivia coming in Patch 7.4 Riot Games

League of Legends Patch 7.4 comes out tomorrow, which means Riot just released its patch notes. Patch 7.3 was about nerfing meta dominant champions, but I guess it wasn’t enough. Maokai, Jhin and Ryze are all getting minor nerfs to (hopefully) bring them in line with over champion’s power levels.

Lethality was buffed a few patches ago and it seems like it’s been a bit too powerful. AD Champions, like Jhin and Camille, still deal too much damage, so their weapons are getting dulled. To compensate, Last Whisper is going to destroy more armor, making dominant tanks just a bit less powerful. Nautilus can tank 31 tower shots, but now he shouldn’t be able to 1v5.

Here are the changes for League of Legends Patch 7.4, broken up into buffs and nerfs.
