Riot seeks to curb proc damage and scaling, buff mana items in LoL Patch 14.3

As Riot continues to crack down on burst damage and overtuned AP/AD ratios, patch 14.3 will seek to curb proc item damage and scaling. Mana items, such as Rod of Ages and Seraph’s Embrace will get a buff to correct for burst and AP getting nerfed as a whole.

On Jan. 30 League of Legends lead gameplay designer Matt “Riot Phroxzon” Leung-Harrison gave players a preview of patch 14.3 on X (formerly Twitter). Under “Systemic Proc Nerfs,” Phroxzon announced that Riot would be pursuing buffs for mana items such as Rod of Ages, Seraphs/Archangel’s Embrace, Malignance and Luden’s Companion, adding that these changes come as a direct result of burst damage and AP getting nerfed. These changes will be accompanied by additional nerfs to proc damage items: Alternator, Rocketbelt, Helias, Shiv, Stormrazor, Profane, Lich Bane, and Titanic Hydra.
