Riot display the new Patch 7.7, and some of League of Legends’ weakest Champions are being brought back to life with some impressive buffs.
Amumu’s buff leads the charge this patch, and it’s definitely the largest of them all. We already went into detail for what his crazy buff means for the sad mummy’s future, but let’s recap.
Amumu’s passive has been reworked. It is still called Cursed Touch, but instead of lowering the magic resist (MR) of enemy champions nearby, it will now do something ridiculously OP. When Amumu hits an enemy with a basic attack, it will apply the Cursed debuff. This debuff causes 15 percent of all magic damage that hits that enemy (including damage from allies) to be converted to true damage, ignoring all resistances. The debuff timer resets from his Despair (W), which has also been buffed to tick more often, and the debuff can also be applied by using his ultimate ability.
With this buff, not only will Amumu deal significantly more damage, but he will be a staple on magic-heavy teams that can take advantage of his passive.
The cooldown of her ultimate ability will now be partially refunded if she kills an enemy champion with it. At the ultimate’s first rank, the reduction is only ten percent, which isn’t that significant. At its final rank though, when Lux hits level 16, the reduction is a whopping 50 percent. She will have the potential to use her high-damage ultimate ability multiple times in extended team fights later in the game.
Jarvan’s Golden Aegis (W), the ability that grants him a shield, is being changed for the better. For starters, it will protect him from more damage early on in the game. More importantly, however, when he hits enemy champions with it, it will boost the shield by a portion of his maximum health per enemy hit. For example, if Jarvan has 4,000 health, if his max-rank shield hits three enemies, it will grant him more shield equal to four percent of his max health (160) three times (480). That’s a big shield.
