As mentioned in our LoL Patch 11.19 Highlights post, this patch is aimed towards changing the solo queue environment. This means no more Amumu support trying to make friends with your ADC! Season 11 is almost at it’s end: Make sure to hit the solo queue up for those end of season rewards on Patch 11.20.
Here at Riftfeed, we know that keeping up with the patches in LoL can be difficult. We’ve got your back with all the buffs and nerfs of LoL Patch 11.20!

Jungle Changes in LoL Patch 11.20
Sorry Jungle mains, Riot is back at it again with another system change for Junglers. Earlier this year Jungle was the target of much experimentation, it doesn’t seem like much has changed. Riot gameplay devs decided to nerf the heal that smite gives, bringing it from 15% to 10% of max health.
At first glance, this may seem worrisome for champions with weaker clears. However, Riot has also pushed nerfs to the base AD on Krugs and Gromp. Hopefully this doesn’t push out Junglers that tend to have less healthy clears completely from the meta.
Support Amumu Nerfed in LoL Patch 11.20
There are very few certainties in this life...death, taxes, and the fact that Amumu will always get nerfed immediately after becoming a relevant pick. Just like earlier in the year when Jungle Amumu was seeing play, he’s been stomped back into the dirt with a huge nerf on Q.
Obviously, this is a targeted nerf towards the Support Amumu playstyle. Riot have taken damage off of his Q and upped the mana cost at all levels. Just when Amumu was beginning to find friends in the bot lane, Riot bullied him yet again.

Taliyah Jungle Nerfed in LoL Patch 11.20
Although Taliyah Jungle hasn’t seen much play in the Worlds 2021 Play-Ins, she’s been a menace in high elo solo queue during Patch 11.19. Anytime a low pick rate champion receives big buffs, you’ll see that win rate shoot up. This is exactly what happened with Taliyah, so Riot is giving her a nerf.
- Taliyah isn't the only Jungler who dominated in Patch 11.19! Check out our mid-patch tier list to see if these Junglers got nerfed, or will keep being strong.
Taliyah's damage to monsters from subsequent stones has been lowered from 80% to 75%. Will these changes be enough to keep her from surfing around the map, or will she struggle to keep her head above water in the new meta?
- Have you seen our new Taliyah Support Master Guide? Go quick before they nerf her again!
