League of Legends: Wild Rift Zeri Crashes Down Yet Again with New Nerfs in Patch 4.1a

Those who play Zeri will not be happy with the recent nerfs made to the fast and zippy champion in League of Legends: Wild Rift Patch 4.1a.

Zeri, despite the last set of nerfs, is still performing well in Wild Rift. Even though her pick rate has gone down, she’s still quite formidable, especially for those who can maximize her kit. To bring her power down yet again, the developers implemented a couple of nerfs in Patch 4.1a.

Her survivability took a hit because the HP she gains per level is now down from 120 to 112. But the biggest nerf here is on her ultimate, Lightning Crash. Now, the bonus attack damage from her chained basic attacks is slashed from 25% attack damage to just 20%.

The nerf to her Lightning Crash ultimate is a huge deal. Zeri mains may have to refine their strategies or rely on their allies a bit more due to this.

Aside from the Zeri nerfs, the recently added Mantle of the Twelfth Hour has been rebalanced. This item now provides the wielder with 200 HP, though its armor and magic resistance values have gone down slightly from 50 to 40. With its passive effect, the Mantle of the Twelfth Hour’s popularity may skyrocket because this buff is impactful in the early game.
