League of Legends patch 12.6 Champions buffs and nerfs

As mentioned above, a series of champions receive buffs and nerfs with the upcoming patch and this time the champion leading the list of champion buffs is Rengar. One of the major LoL 12.6 champion buffs is coming to Rengar, and talking about the same, Riot Phlox said:

"Finally made some time to bring the Rengar changes for y'all. This list will be heading out in 12.6. Rengar has some pretty awkward mechanics right now, especially with W and Passive. I think W not flowing into any assassination combo is a definite feels bad for a lot of his builds."

So let's have a look at these champion buffs along with LoL patch 12.6 Rengar Changes.

  • LoL Rengar Changes

Unseen Predator (P):

  1. [MODIFIED): When Rengar has no ferocity his next leap generates 1 ferocity.
  2. Ferocity Falloff Time: 8 >>> 10
  3. Bonetooth Forgiveness Timer: 1.55 >>> 3s
  4. Timing on the ability to leap from the brush is no longer variable by up to 0.25s --- Range increased 25u to adjust
  5. Jump Height: Slightly increased
  6. Uses secondary resource bar for stacks, shows which stack came from leap

Savagery (Q):

  1. Always counts as a critical strike, critical strike chance scales damage --- Currently: 1% crit chance = 1 damage
  2. Works on towers

Bola Strike (E):

  1. [NEW]: No cast time when leaping
  2. [NEW]: Reveals enemies for 2 seconds

R Reveal:

  1. Just the Unit >>> small area around the unit

Other than the mentioned changes, Phlox also revealed, "Bonus: The Q crit changes are so that when playing low% Crit Rengar you're not just yolo hoping for a crit to be successful, and left out to dry if you don't get that 20/40%. This also means we can tune crit builds directly, if they're shit we bump up the number and vice versa."
