The League of Legends exhaust nerf has affected many champions, but it has not completely destroyed the game. Its effects vary depending on the meta and champion. Exhaust is not a powerful summoner spell, but it is better than summoner spells with higher DPS. It also scales throughout the match and is more useful in the late game.
Bugfixes in Exhaust
In the latest patch, League of Legends has fixed several issues related to the exhaust in the game. Now, Exhaust no longer reduces the damage of abilities or items by 50%. Furthermore, it no longer affects the stealth effect. The visuals have also been improved, so that they’re clearer to the player.
There’s still room for improvement, but there are no major changes to the spell itself. It’s a good defensive spell that can reduce the damage of enemies. It doesn’t reduce true damage, and champions that are immune to crowd control won’t be affected by Exhaust. It also works well throughout the match and scales well. Moreover, it’s very useful for shielding the carry.
The new patch also contains several bugfixes. For instance, the effects of Exhaust Ammo are now displayed properly on hit if a player is not knocked down while fast traveling. Additionally, you can now chain Hunting Edge into Strong Wide Slash or Strong Charged Slash. It costs one Wirebug Gauge, and the effect recovers more quickly.
Changes to Biscuits & Time Warp combo
The new Biscuit Delivery ability allows you to play aggressively in the lane and extend your time on the map. This ability also adds more damage to melee minions. This change makes this combo more effective if you’re behind the other team.
Biscuits and Time Warp have a similar effect, but they are both stronger when combined. The time warp tonic can add in-lane sustain. However, it’s a bit more expensive than Biscuits, so it’s not recommended for all builds. If you’re looking for a great in-lane sustain build, the time warp tonic may be your best bet.
Impact on LeBlanc & Varus
The nerf to Varus and LeBlanc’s exhaust has affected their role in the game as well as their overall balance. While they have decent skillshots, the nerf will reduce the impact of their ultimate. The changes are less drastic than we originally thought, but we should still emphasize their strengths. We are concerned that this nerf will make them more dependent on their ultimate, which is dangerous.
Although LeBlanc’s win rate is down about three points, she’s still a very powerful champion. She still needs some tweaks, though. Although LeBlanc isn’t back to her no-counterplay self, she will benefit from a buff to her late game mana cost.
The damage reduction was also altered. Now, it costs ten mana less and is on a one-second cooldown. Varus also got a three-point base AD increase. All Potions will heal for twenty to thirty less HP. LeBlanc’s damage on Distortion was also increased.
