League of Legends Update 4.1 Patch Notes Detail Nidalee and Skarner Changes

Here we go summoners!

The League of Legends Update 4.1 patch notes are here and they have brought big changes for two champions, Nidalee and Skarner. Both the champions have been detailed in great length in the patch notes however we have a little overview for you.

First off, Nidalee is best at low counter-play games and developers have tried to maintain her gameplay style without having to ask every other champion in the game to play in her style.

Moving on, Skarner had been turned into a balanced champion but one with a lack of excitement for the players. Now he will be ‘a stickier, more disruptive arachnid.’

Talking about the changes made to ADs, League of Legends Update 4.1 patch notes post says:

We’ve got a whole pile of attack damage, lifesteal, and attack speed itemization changes that should open up early to mid-game item builds as well as bridging the gap between burst-focused AD marksmen and the more traditional auto-attack focused marksmen.

The overarching goal is to give more strength back to the marksman role while also leveling the playing field in terms of champion viability.

There are a lot of changes to digest here (we’ve removed the passive movement speed debuff on Randuin’s Omen!), so make sure you get informed before hopping into your next ranked game.

Bloodthirster which is the main weapon of an ‘AD carry’ now has a different passive. On top of that, two new items are being added to the game.

Other champions that have been updated are Galio, Gragas, Karthus, LeBlanc, Lucian, Pantheon, Sivir, Thresh, Tristana, Tryndamere, Twitch and Zed.

Obviously, that is in addition to a hefty list of other changes that the game has had.
