Big nerfs on the way to Braum tankiness with upcoming Patch 8.8, according to the latest PBE update.
Braum’s nerfs are targeted mostly at his early game tankiness, but there is a nerf to his scaling tankiness mixed in, too. The first nerf lowers both the armor and magic resist (MR) provided by his W. It will now provide 10-26 of each stat, depending on ability rank, which is way down from what it provides now at 17.5-27.5.
Obviously, this nerf is negligible at higher levels, but losing almost eight armor and MR at early levels, when it matters the most, is a very big deal. Both Braum and his in-lane ally are going to feel much, much squishier in duels, so he’ll be much more susceptible to early fights for lane control. His armor growth per level is also taking a hit, but only by 0.5 per level.
Braum changes must be arrived with upcoming Patch 8.8 in the next week.
