League of Legends Patch 12.5 Highlights

Ahri and Master Yi nerfed

After performing stronger than required in higher tier matches, Ahri ends up on Riot’s nerf list after her full rework in Patch 12.3. League’s six-tailed assassin receives a decrease in her W base damage from 60/85/110/135/160 (+30% AP) to 50/75/100/125/150 (+30% AP) along with an increased mana cost. 

Master Yi receives a mini-rework that decreases the assassin's Q ability synergy with lethality builds, adding on-hit scaling to the champions’ E ability, Wuju Styling. The set of nerfs now reduces Alpha Strike's cooldown upon each attack, scaling it down with Ability Haste. The more the attacks, the shorter the cooldown is expected to get.

The latest patch also arrives with a reminder for League fans to spend their existing Prestige points, as Riot aims to convert Gemstones and Prestige points into a new currency called Mythic Essence, in the next update.

However, League fans will have to wait one whole month for the next patch as Riot developers go on month-long-break scheduling League's Patch 12.6 for a March 30 release. Players can read about the rest of the bug fixes, QoL, and VFX updates by clicking on the full patch notes here.

Patch 12.5 is scheduled to hit live servers on Wednesday, March 2.
