The changes expected in patch 12.16 could directly affect Diana’s item build in the near future.
Riot Phroxzon – the head of the gameplay balance design team recently announced the details of the expected changes in version 12.16. In addition to the Zeri – Yuumi duo being nerfed, or Poppy Jungle will clear monsters more slowly. Then another point of interest in this update is the adjustment to Diana.
Diana style Sun Shield combined with Conqueror has become an extremely familiar trend for many Junglers for nearly a year. With a large amount of damage, the ability to quickly clear the forest, and great resistance from the Sun Shield, good recovery from Conquest, Diana has a 54.33% win rate at Master rank and above ( by lolalytics.com)
The formidable power of Diana Sun Shield
Realizing that Diana’s power is going too far from the original plan when designing the Moon of Resentment, the Riot Games team decided to adjust some skills to bring Diana back to her original position – a Slayer Mage. High damage hunter. Details of the adjustments expected in version 12.16 are as follows:
Moonlight Sword – Passive: Base damage reduced from 20-250 to 20-220 (significant change at levels 11-16). AP ratio increased from 50% to 55%. New Moon – E skill: AP ratio increased from 45% to 50%.
Overall, Riot Games wants to bring Diana back to the role of an Assassin Mage with the ability to put strong damage in combat. The “father” of League of Legends is completely dissatisfied with the current construction of the Moon of Resentment – a tough Diana Gladiator in combat with the Sun Shield equipment. Reducing the base damage of Moonlight Sword’s passive will cause Solar Shield Diana to drastically reduce her clearing speed in the mid-game.
The above adjustment parameters can completely be changed during Riot’s testing. Version 12.16 will land on August 24, and we need to wait until then to know the final adjustment to Diana. Game4V will fully update information about Riot’s updated content to readers as soon as possible.
