Arena is back, but it's time we make some major changes to the balance of the game, because Yuumi is just too much. Luckily, Riot has already planned their mid-patch update.

Riot is not just adding in a mid-patch update for Summoner's Rift, but their newest game mode, Arena, is also in dire need of some adjustments. So before everyone at Riot goes on vacation, we're getting one last mid-patch update.

Let's go over all the balance changes in the latest game mode to see whether Yuumi and her tanks are finally getting some nerfs – spoiler alert! They are!

In this mid-patch update, Riot have revealed that they're going to be nerfing 'stalling comps' which is basically when players use super tanky champions to play in the ring of fire without dying. 

This is also the reason why players are currently so upset and calling for Yuumi to be removed from the arena altogether, as she's a key part of these comps.

Champion Nerfs


  • E Cooldown Refund: 40% ⇒ 25%
  • E Base Damage: 80/125/170/215/260 >> 80/115/150/185/220

LoL Arena Buffs

Mages haven't felt the best in the Arena game mode, which is why Riot is looking to buff them, as well as their tools to go up against big buff tanks in Arena. So, expect some direct mage buffs, as well as item buffs to help them out. 

Item Buffs

To help mages in their fight against tanks, Riot is going to be buffing some tank specific mage items in Arena. 

  • Liandry's Anguish
Maximum Agony Bonus Damage: 12% (maxed out at 4000 health) ⇒ 15% (maxed out at 4000 health)
  • Sorcerer's Shoes

18 ⇒ 20 magic penetration

Champion Buffs

There are three mages on the buff list to get specific buffs from Riot. Hopefully these number adjustments will help them once they go into the Arena. 

  • Karthus
  • Neeko
  • Zilean


  • Added Bonus Maximum Health: 0-200 (levels 1-18)
  • R Damage: 200/350/500 (+75% AP) ⇒ 350/550/750 (+100% AP)


  • Added Bonus Maximum Health: 0-200 (levels 1-18)
