Too unbalanced, Udyr’s gameplay will be drastically reduced by Riot in patch 13.1, the first official update of season 13.
Udyr with his Lethality build has been unreasonably strong lately, and RIot has finally decided to tackle this issue.
Since being reworked so far, Udyr has truly become a hugely successful upgrade from before. The set of moves is more versatile, although it still retains the spirit and classic gameplay. Accompanied by the ability to diversify, Udyr can go in that direction every afternoon. And it seems that Riot wants this champion to always be kept in such a balanced position.
There was a time when Udyr players only focused on playing half Resist, half Magic Power. It’s not because the Physical Strength build is weak with Udyr, it’s just that Udyr’s Wings of Frost (R) is too bad then. However, when version 12.18 landed, Udyr’s Thunder Claw (Q) was significantly increased by Riot, suddenly gamers discovered a new way of playing even more powerful than before, that is Udyr Kill.
With that buff, as long as you max Q and in the Martial Tiger Awakened state, your 2 punches are enough to take at least 50% of the opponent’s max health. What if you also brought more Rain of Swords and increased Lethality? In this case, Dark Claw would be the most suitable item for a walking champion like Udyr (it also suits, of course, because it allows Udyr to amplify damage afterwards). In short, an Udyr of Dark Claw, Cloak of Shadows (Pirate Gun), Black Ax, Dominik’s Crossbow, etc., at the end of the game, will have more than enough shock to damage any target, including Anti. No matter what.
In addition to the power threshold that can be reached too early (just Dark Claw is a ridiculous amount of damage), this Udyr playstyle can be maintained even when the game is late. Nothing can stop Udyr from shocking your mains, and if he has 1-2 resistances like Martyr’s Armor, Nature’s Armor or Dance of Death…
Therefore, the fact that Riot Phroxzon recently announced on Twitter that Riot has been paying attention to Udyr Lethal, this case will definitely be knocked out in version 13.1. It is likely that besides reducing the power of this Lethal item, Riot will slightly increase the strength of Resist, Magic Power plays to prevent this champion from being overpowered leading to disappearing from the meta.
