League of Legends: Patch 4.11 Brings Nerfs to Kayle, Jax and Braum
Patch 4.11 went live for League of Legends yesterday and brings nerfs to contested champions, as well as the addition of a new item.
This is the third time that the recently released Braum champion is receiving nerfs. His passive now damages for 50 + 12 per level instead of the previous 70 + 10.
Jax has always been one of the most contested picks in the game. You either ban him or first pick him. Patch 4.11 brings him down a notch in terms of base health, health per level and armor per level.
Alongside Jax, Kayle has also grown in popularity with her massive AOE spam and an invulnerable ultimate ability that’s incredibly annoying. In the latest patch the AP ratios of her E – Righteous Fury gets reduced to 0.2 from 0.4. Cooldown of R-Intervention has also been increased by 20 seconds.
Maokai sees to some quality of life post-patch. His Q-Arcane Smash now has a lesser mana cost with slightly reduced slow duration. His W-Twisted Advance has his cast time removed, cooldown and range reduced. Additionally his E-Sapling Toss now gets movement speed as Maokai levels up. The saplings also now slow enemy champions by 50 percent for 1 second. Finally his R-Vengeful Maelstrom has been changed so that it is a self-casted ability only. Its mana cost and radius have also been reduced.
Riot has also made changes to the game’s turrets, making them dish out for damage early on. Additionally gold rewards for kills in the early game have been increased to promote invades and early aggression.
