League of Legends’ much-awaited update is out. Patch 12.3 makes several changes to champions like Ahri and Akshan. This update also makes massive changes to bruiser items, so keep an eye out for the top lane champions dominating the rift.

Ahri Changes

Ahri got some adjustments in this update. While her laning phase is nerfed due to reduced base stats, her abilities have been made stronger.

  • Ahri’s passive, Essence Theft, grants her a stack for every minion killed. After collecting nine Essence Theft stacks Ahri heals for 40-120 (+25% AP). If Ahri kills or gets an assist on a kill within three seconds, she feasts on the essence, allowing herself to heal for 80-200 (+35% AP).
  • Ahri’s Orb of Deception has the same base damage. However, the AP scaling has increased from +35% to +40% AP.
  • Ahri’s Fox-Fire now deals additional damage, with reduced mana costs. But the flame duration has been reduced from five to 2.5 seconds.
  • Ahri’s Charm has higher base stats from 60/90/120/150/180 (+40% AP) to 80/110/140/170/200 (+60% AP). The mana cost is reduced from 70 to 50, which means she can spam it more in lane. However, the bonus damage after using Charm has been removed.
  • Ahri’s Spirit Rush now lasts for 15 seconds granting her more time to dash in and out. Consuming the enemy champion’s essence while Spirit Rush is active extends the Ultimate’s recast duration by up to 10 seconds. It also grants Ahri an additional cast of Spirit Rush, but she could only store up to 3 casts.
