After the patch 13.10 item reworks were released, Riot hotfixed Yasuo, Yone, and Kindred
Many items were updated in League of Legends Patch 13.10, and some things also underwent categorization changes. Due to the nerfs to several champions’ essential item and the subsequent drop in win rates that occurred as a result of these modifications, Riot promptly published a hotfix buff patch.
Three champions, including Yasuo, Yone, and Kindred have been added to the hotfix buff list, but before LoL Patch 13.11 goes live in two weeks, we expect to see several further hotfixes.
Patch 13.10 Hotfix Buffs
- HP growth: 101 ⇒ 110
- Passive shield: 100-575 ⇒ 125-600
- W cooldown: 30/27/24/21/18 seconds ⇒ 25/23/21/19/17/15 seconds
- Base Armor: 28 ⇒ 30
- HP growth: 99 ⇒ 105
- W cooldown: 16~6 seconds, scaling with bonus attack speed ⇒ 14~6 seconds, scaling with bonus attack speed
- W shield: 35-55 (levels 1-18) (+55% bonus AD) ⇒ 45-65 (levels 1-18) (+65% bonus AD)
- HP growth: 99 ⇒ 104
- AD growth: 2.5 ⇒ 3.25
- E Crit Threshold: 15-65% target max health, scaling with crit chance ⇒ 25-75% target max health, scaling with crit chance
Kraken Slayer and Immortal Shieldbow being reclassified as legendary items have really changed the way these champions interact with those items, hence, Riot is balancing it in the patch hotfix.
Riot will increase Yasuo and Yone sustain because both rely on the item Immortal Shieldbow. Riot will shorten the cooldown of Yasuo’s wind wall, which serves as his main defensive mechanism.
Similar to this, Yone’s W’s shield is what keeps him alive. So Riot somewhat improved his shield.
Although Kindred doesn’t require Immortal Shieldbow, her HP growth has also been improved, which is a cool change. Her AD growth and E crit threshold rise, however, are the key bonuses.
If this hotfix is insufficient, we may anticipate Riot giving these champions significant upgrades in the upcoming updates. Though Riot has previously said that LoL Patch 13.11 would be a balance-follow-up one for all the changes that were implemented on live servers in this update, there may be further changes.
