To answer why AD is dominating AP so much in League of Legends, Riot Axes said that he and the team need more time to analyze this case further.
Historically, Mage has always been one of the strongest general classes League of Legends but only a few are effective on Summoner’s Rift 2022. Riot Games is aware of the role’s problems but has yet to figure out how to make a difference.
In response to a question regarding the current state of power between physical damage and magic power – the two main resources in the game – Riot Axes admitted that there is a clear difference from the point of view of the development team. Riot representatives noted that they are still ‘unable to act’ regarding this system in League of Legends.
Mid lane, where the majority of mages are being used, has seen almost no changes despite the meta changes over the past year. But it is this that has affected the diversity of this champion class.
In the professional arena, they only select a few Magician and prioritize other Gladiators in the mid lane. As for Ranked Battle, players prefer to use Assassins – even more evident when the equipment system changes greatly in the 2023 Pre-Season.

Players commented in the related thread that in the past few years AD is dominating AP and that’s why mages are not very popular. Riot Axes said that although the comparison is an issue, he and the team need more time to evaluate and analyze this case.
‘AD cheaper than AP is a bit odd but it’s not a problem in its nature. We’re scaling around existing items. If you add more AP then you will see we decrease the rate AP (of items) down respectively. But I think on balance, I’d like to see those AP numbers go up,’ said Riot Axes.
