The preseason has just begun and it's been insane. The amount of changes on the PBE server that will be seeing some updates and fixes is... a lot. But, what other changes does Riot have planned and which champions will be getting some major updates? Let's go over the LoL PBE Patch 12.23 right now. 

If you're a Zeri fan, then you've been suffering these last few months. But don't worry Riot is going to give her some buffs and changes to try and make her playable in solo queue without being too overbearing in pro play either. So let's go over every single change on the PBE server right now. 

LoL PBE Patch 12.23: Zeri Changes Coming Soon

Zeri's infinite movement speed scaling, as well as her AP ratios have made her one of the most dominant champions halfway through the year, especially in pro play where she led the charge against Sivir who was the other top tier bot lane pick throughout the summer. 

Well, now Riot is going to take away from of the AP damage, exchanging it with physical damage, as well as making it harder for her to infinitely use her ultimate, continuously stacking movement and attack speed. So, let's go over the exact changes that you will encounter in LoL Patch 12.23. 

LoL PBE Patch 12.23 Zeri Ability Changes

  • Move Speed: 325 --> 330
  • Base AD: 50 --> 53
  • Base Armor: 20 --> 24
  • Base Health: 600 --> 630
  • Attack Speed Ratio: 0.568 --> 0.625

  • AD Ratio: 100/105/110/115/120% AD --> 104/108/112/112/116/120% AD

Ultrashock Laser (W)

  • Damage Type: Magic --> Physical
  • Damage: 20/55/90/125/160(+100%AD)(+40%AP) --> 20/60/100/140/180(+130%AD)(+0%AP)

  • Missile Speed: 2200 --> 2500
  • Beam Cast Time: 0.75s --> 0.85s

Spark Surge (E)

  • Mana Cost: 80 --> 90/85/80/75/70
  • Cooldown: 24/22.5/21/19.5/18s --> 22/21/20/19/18s

  • If R hits at least one champion, Zeri gains 10% movement speed, 30% attack speed, and chain shots ofr 5s. Hitting champions refreshes this buff by 1.5s (up to 5s total)
  • Hitting champions grants Zeri 1 stack (3 per crit) of Overcharge for 1.5s. Zeri gains 0.5% movement speed for each stack of Overcharge (stacking infinitely)

These are some pretty hefty changes, but at least these will make Zeri an actual champion again. her base stats getting some love is also key since she's been one of the lowest win rate champions recently, scrounging up a mere 42%, but with these updates she might make it into relevancy once more. 

This might not be Zeri, but the newest champion is K'Sante... so let's check out how to counter the big guy:

Dr. Mundo Proposed Update in LoL Patch 12.23 

On the PBE we've got some more changes though. This one is to our dear friend Dr. Mundo. He's a great top lane champion, but also decent in the jungle. But he has been struggling ever since Riot released his VGU in 2021. His W has been haled as one of the worst abilities in the game and now Riot is finally going to do something about it to try and fix him. 

Dr. Mundo Changes on PBE Server 12.23

Base Stats

  • AD per Level: 3.5 --> 3
  • Base Magic Resist: 32 --> 29
  • Magic Resist per Level: 2.050 --> 2.3

Goes Where he Pleases (P)

  • Duration: 4s --> 3s

Blunt Force Trauma (E)

  • Passive Bonus AD: 15/20/25/30/35 + 25/30/35/40/45 based on missing health --> 2.5/3/3.5/4/4.5% max Health

Champion Buffs & Nerfs on LoL PBE Server 12.23

Tahm Kench Changes on LoL PBE Server 12.23

Tahm Kench will also be getting some big changes this coming patch. He is going to have much more AP scaling in his kit, but will these proposed changes really help him out when it comes to his wave clear, which is his biggest issue when playing him as a top laner?

Sure, Tahm is a very strong top lane early champion, but he falls off in the later stages of the game, so we're wondering whether these changes will truly impact him or whether Riot is just confused about their own champion. 

An Acquired Taste (P)

  • Damage now scales with 2% AP per 100 bHP

Tongue Lash (Q)

  • AP ratio increased from 90% to 100%

Abyssal Dive (W)

  • AP ratio increased from 125% to 150%

Devour (R)

  • Shield now decays by 200 per second instead of lasting 2.5 seconds
  • Damage AP ratio increased from 5% per 100 AP to 7% per 100

Kassadin Quality of Life Updates on PBE Patch 12.23 

Kassadin is also going to be getting some quality of life updates. Riot is looking to make him an impactful pic and give him some more survivability. Add in the new item Rod of Ages and you've got a great champion once more. Does this mean we will finally see some epic Kassadin outplays again in pro play come 2023? 

Q - Null Sphere

  • Shield granted on spell cast rather than when the missile leaves his hand (small buff to make parry more reliable)
  • +20 Shield per Rank: 60/90/120/150/180 --> 80/110/140/170/200
  • -10% Shield AP Ratio: 40% --> 30%

E - Force Pulse

  • Nearby spell casts reduce the Cooldown by 1 second
  • Cooldown: 5 --> 21/19/17/15/13

Final Ashen Knight Skin Revealed

The final Ashen Knight skin was officially revealed by Riot. It's going to be a skin for none other than Mordekaiser and finally the fans are getting what they'd hoped for when the Ashen Knight skin line was revealed. Mordekaiser fits perfectly into this dark world and the skin looks incredible. 

This will be the final skin in the Ashen Knight skin line for now. Riot might look to make this skin line a permanent and normal one in the future. What theme we might get for 2023 has not been revealed yet.
