Happy New Year's summoners! Let's kick off 2013 just how we ended 2012... with a red post collection!
Upcoming Syndra Buffs
While Syndra may not be the most popular champion, she has a set of buffs coming in the next patch. Here is Meddler with the scoop on what Riot is aiming for with these new changes.
"Regarding the upcoming changes we're primarily looking to add a bit of extra power to her mid to late game, hence the boost to her ult at max rank (level 16+) and the improved E CD (level 14+ assuming it's maxed third, or level 8+ if people start maxing it second). Quite agree she's strong in lane, that's something we don't want to buff, she does fall off a bit more than desired late game however, even accounting for that early strength."For reference, here are the tentative Syndra buffs from the last PBE patch:
SyndraGifting Center will return!
- Transcendent now grants +75 Range to Unleashed Power at max rank.
- Scatter the Weak cooldown decreased to 18/16.5/15/13.5/12 from 18/17/16/15/14.
RiotAmes, again, mentioned the future plans for the gifting center after it is taken down on Janurary 6th and reminded us that it the feature will return in the future!
"We'll be taking gifting down soon to work on some improvements and do some deep data checks on the effects on fraud, account security, etc. We'll also be looking into what may be causing some people to be unable to gift when they think they should. There won't be any further changes before we disable it for Snowdown - but it'll be coming back."
