Darius and Fiora mains might not like what Riot Games has done in League of Legends: Wild Rift Patch 3.1b. This update brings a lot of balancing changes but nerfs both the said champions.

For Darius, his attack speed per level has been nerfed considerably from 2.2% to just 1.2%. This means that at level 15, he maxes out his attack speed at only 27% instead of 41%. The reason for this is that Darius had been dominating Baron Lane as he was able to access his Noxian Might quite easily (from his Hemorrhage passive).

Aside from that, those who like abusing Fiora’s Lunge ability will be saddened to know that its overall range has been reduced, making it more punishable than before. She’s still a pretty strong contender in Baron Lane, however, thanks to the buffs to her passive.

In terms of item adjustments, Trinity Force has received some good changes to compete against the Black Cleaver and Divine Sunderer. Its attack damage and health have been increased to 25 and 250, respectively.
