Damage for health: LoL Patch 13.17 to change how players approach lethality builds for 7 champs

Riot Games developers will be pushing League of Legends players to consider durability over lethality after next week’s Patch 13.17 with adjustments to seven powerful champions, all of which will have their health or shields buffed and their damage nerfed somewhat in order to limit their strong burst potential.

Lead League designer Matt “Phroxzon” Leung-Harrison discussed the team’s approach yesterday before revealing on Aug. 22 just how substantial these changes would be.
