We're inching closer and closer to the start of the 2022 Mid-Season Invitational in Busan, South Korea, where Faker is going to be playing his first ever international tournament on home soil. But before we can get there, it's time to check out which champions could be meta. 

So, which champions will be nerfed and which champions are going to be buffed? Did the sustain changes in League of Legends Patch 12.6 have an influence on more item changes or even some champion adjustments? Let's go over all the details right now. 


All Champion Adjustments in Patch 12.7

Which Champions Are Getting Buffed in Patch 12.7? 

A total of ten champions are going to be buffed. Some of the champions left us a bit confused, because they make our gold and silver games hell already, but these changes are geared towards pro play more than anything and in thart regard some of these questionable buffs do make sense.

Which Champions Are Getting Nerfed in Patch 12.7?

The nerf list is much smaller than the buff list and these are mostly picks you only see in pro play. Seriously, Ryze has a 45% win rate on right now and he is getting nerfed? Well, he is a champion that can be insane, but only if you've got the right communication and team play at your disposal, which in solo queue won't work 90% of the time.

Rengar Update in Patch 12.7 

In the last patch, Rengar got a mini rework. Did it help him get better? Yes, it sure did, but Riot is continuing to monitor this jungler to make sure they get all his changes just right. So in League of Legends Patch 12.7 we are going to be seeing some adjustments to his new kit. 

Rengar has been taking towers with a little too much ease, so to combar this Riot has shifted some of his damage against towers, but increased his damage to jungle monsters. This doesn't meant hough that top lane Rengar is dead! 

These are the Rengar Adjustments

  • Q Bonus Damage Reduced by 40% against structures
  • W Bonus Monster Damage: 65-130 --> 85-150
