LoL Patch 14.4 – Big changes coming for two champions

Patch 14.3 came with a major list of changes that are bound to shake up the meta. Not only are champions receiving buffs and nerfs, but there have been a few item changes to better balance the power of mages as well as the Hydra items, which have been quite powerful on specific champions.

Going into Patch 14.4, it’s likely that we’re going to see more focus on some of the outliers, both in solo queue as well as professional play. According to game designer Spideraxe, there are already planned changes for Rek’Sai and K’Sante. The former looks like a straight buff when going for damage-oriented builds while the latter is getting more tankiness at the expense of lower mobility, nerfing the speed at which his dashes work.

Below you can find the exact numbers and adjustments that are currently planned. Be aware that they might be subject to further changes in the upcoming days.

Patch 14.3 Release Date

According to the official patch schedule, Patch 14.4 will be released on Thursday, Feb.22. This will be the 4th patch out of the 24 updates planned for the year.

How will the upcoming patch impact the meta?

It’s still too early to judge how the meta will shift, considering that Patch 14.3 has just come out. We will be monitoring the meta shifts in the upcoming days and give a clearer analysis once the patch preview from Riot is released.
