(Country) – Nguyet Dao will be nerfed in the upcoming 12.19 patch and Riot has provided an explanation.
League of Legends version 12.19 is about to come to the community of players around the world. Riot Games has not forgotten the task of updating despite being busy with the World Championship tournament taking place in Mexico. Version 12.19 is considered the final version of the season, so they will be entertaining. Therefore, many interesting changes will appear in the near future with the message: “Enjoy the breakthrough” from the publisher.
The World Championship is on, but Riot Games hasn’t forgotten to update!
In patch 12.19, Blitzcrank will be pushed back to the jungle position, while Syndra will be completely changed to champion. Syndra was previously strong in the early game, with the all-new Debris collection mechanism, the Dark Queen will be pushed back to the mid game more.
However, Riot Games released a parameter that made the community feel very confused in version 12.19. Specifically, Riot reduced the power of the Moon Blade miserably, they increased the equipment by 5 attack power stats but stripped it of 6 points of Lethality. Of course, this trade-off is too lame because lethality is very important if the player already has some large equipment. If you compare the above two factors together, players will definitely see that Nguyet Dao is noticeably weaker.
Nguyet Knife has a terrible nerf
In order to answer questions for the worldwide player community, Riot gave an explanation: “Moon Dao is inherently strong thanks to the armor-piercing mechanism of Mythic equipment’s passive. An item that just pierces armor by % of the time. having too much Lethal stat available will make the owner have a huge source of power.The reduction of Lethality is to help the mythical stats promote better power, avoiding physical gladiators from taking advantage of the page. suffer this”.
Indeed, as Riot explained, Nguyet Dao is strong thanks to the Mythic mechanism that interacts too well with the base stats. When the player has several large items of equipment, this equipment both penetrates armor by %, and has the ability to directly subtract from the opponent’s defense. This is quite contradictory, like 2 elements in 1 item. Therefore, although Riot Games has not done a good job of balancing in the past, perhaps our publisher was right with Nguyet Dao in this 12.19 version.
The champion that is most affected in this 12.19 patch is definitely Aatrox. Demon Sword Darkin belongs to the standard group of gladiators, but makes good use of the Moon Blade thanks to his stats, effects and ability to shock damage with his set of moves. In addition, some other champions are also indirectly weakened such as: Jayce, Hecarim, Graves, …
