Likely changes: * Base AD to 57 (from 61) * Base MS to 335 (from 345) * W % to 10-14 (from 12-16) * E damage to 40-140 and 25-65 (from 40-180 and 25-125) That's for the hotfix we're aiming to put out early this week. Additional changes will follow if needed (buffs or nerfs, though I'd be very surprised if this overnerfed him) in the next regular patch (5.17).

Are any other champs gonna get changed in the hotfix? Statikk mentioned the Darius changes, what about Morde and Garen?
Meddler (NA)

We're reducing Garen's base MS by 5 (to 340), and his Q MS bonus by 5% (to 30%). Darius I believe we're increasing Q damage (40-160, instead of 20-100) and possibly buffing Q heal % (not certain where conversation on that got to on Friday). No hotfix changes currently planned for Morde, still quite a bit of chaos as people get used to playing as and against his more substantial changes, so harder to get a useful read on what should or shouldn't be changed.

Quick update: No Garen changes in the hotfix. He's almost certainly too strong, and we'll probably go through with the nerfs in 5.17, he's not so out of line we need to act before the next regular patch though. Taking the time to assess how he's doing a bit more as a result.

WOAH WOAH WOAH Skarner got to keep his 345 ms after becoming a juggernaut but FREAKING MORDE DIDNT? Morde doesnt have a ms buff no matter what his is completely situational :/

Yeah, we definitely misread that one, in retrospect we should have gone with the lowered MS on Skarner in 5.16 launch.

I do have a silly question.... Would Morde be able to get like 335 or 330 ms instead of the 325 he currently has? I mean he feels REALLY slow and its somewhat difficult to do Morde things being so slow.

We're holding off on committing to any Morde changes until players have adapted more to Morde's new state and we've got a better handle on how he's doing. If he needs power, and is struggling because he can't get onto appropriate targets often enough, MS is probably what we'll look at, particularly given it also offers a feel improvement. Too early to make any promises there though.

Additional changes will follow if needed (buffs or nerfs, though I'd be very surprised if this overnerfed him) in the next regular patch (5.17). I'm still surprised you decided to keep Skarner's base MS unnerfed from PBE. So I can definitely see that getting slashed, as well as the insane burst from E, but I don't see why Skarner has to lose that amazing shield value on W or his base AD. Since he won't clear with E anymore, that means he has to rank up Q and autoattack a lot, meaning the shield value (at least) should probably not change. Thoughts?

Our current thinking is that Skarner's incredibly overpowered. I suspect he'll still be too strong after these changes and we'll have to hit him in 5.17 as well, will assess that once the hotfix is out, see if that's true and if so where the problem is.
