The patch 12.15 has not only nerfs for Sivir and Master Yi in League of Legends, but also for the rune First Strike.
In League of Legends patch 12.5 went live on Tuesday and has buffs for several champions. In addition, Master Yi and Sivir receive a nerf through the update.
Riot Games makes some tweaks to Master Yi with patch 12.5. The champion gets a nerf to the E skill. The skill now has a consistent cooldown of 18 seconds. But Sivir has also received a nerf from the update. The increase of her attack damage has been reduced and the cooldown of E and R have been increased.
On the other hand, some champions can look forward to a buff. The mana cost of Leona”s Q ability has been reduced and the duration of R”s crowd control has also been increased. Lillia now deals more damage against monsters in the Summoner”s Rift. In addition, eight more champions will receive a buff with patch 12.15, including Singed, Lee Sin and Shen.

The next update for League of Legends is already on the doorstep. Patch 12.15 will probably already make some minor adjustments for the Worlds. The update is expected to go live in Summoner”s Rift in a week”s time.
Riot Games lead designer Matt “Phroxzon” Leung-Harrison is already giving a first glimpse at the upcoming patch 12.15. Master Yi seems to be too strong on the whole. Therefore, the champion will probably receive a nerf with the update. Likewise, Taliyah, Qiyana, Sivir and Gwen as well as Kalista can apparently also expect a nerf with Patch 12.15.
On the other hand, Lillia is supposed to get a buff in the Jungle by giving the champion a higher monster damage. Patch 12.15 seems to have planned a buff for several champions in League of Legends. A total of ten characters are expected to be buffed. Besides Lillia, Singed, Leona, Rammus and Lee Sin, among others, will probably also be adjusted.
Notable: We”re happy with where Yi has ended up across skill brackets, but he”s too strong across the board.
Taliyah, targeted at E uptime
Most buffs are targeted at repeatability over burst. Other changes are small swings as we attempt to stabilize for playoffs and worlds. pic.twitter.com/riILtvEFZT
