So you’ve been sick and tired of having to pay against Viego? You’d rather gouge out your eyes than deal with another Goredrinker abuser? Well then, check out the upcoming LoL Patch 11.21 patch notes and what is heading our way in one week!

There are multiple champion buffs and nerfs, some of which we agree with, while others we’re questioning – looking at that Viego buff Riot. But we’re excited to see what one of the last patches of 2021 will have in store for us before we enter the pre-season with whole new items and dragon changes!

Which Champions Will Receive Buffs in Patch 11.21?

We’ve already mentioned the upcoming buff to Viego, but he isn’t the only champion Riot has their sights on in terms of buffs. A few more underperformers will be getting buffs in Patch 11.21, with a few ADCs on the list as well – oh and Teemo... of course.

These are all champions receiving buffs in LoL Patch 11.21:

  • Viego - Q Total AD Ratio increased to 70%, W Self-Slow decreased to 10%, R Crit Ratio increased to 100%
  • Teemo - Q Cooldown decreased, blind duration increased and missile speed increased
  • Lux - Attack speed per level increased, passive mark duration increased if basic ability is in flight or R is being channeled. E damage increase and R cooldown decreased
  • Xayah - Move speed increased and Q cooldown decreased
  • Jinx - Passive total attack speed increased to 25%, E cast range increased and R cooldown decreased
  • Sion - W shield ratio is now 11/12/13/14/15% of max HP

Riot Phlox also explained that they've played the new Teemo changes, making the little Yordle extremely fun and dangerous. So beware of Teemo in the upcoming patch!

Which Champions Will Receive Nerfs in Patch 11.21?

Akshan has become a menace in the top lane. It seems Riot got wind of the select few who think the marksman should dominate the top half of the map and want to take away their fun by slapping a cold hard nerf onto the new champion.

These are all champions receiving nerfs in LoL Patch 11.21:

  • Quinn - W bonus attack speed decreased
  • Graves - E armor decreased to 4/7/10/13/16
  • Akshan - E damage per shot decreased to 30/45/60/75/90
  • Karthus (Bot) - E mana refund decreased
  • Miss Fortune - Base mana decreased and W mana cost increased to 45
