League of Legends Patch 13.7 Preview

Riot Phroxzon shared the preview via Twitter, pointing out Azir's W max path and “putting more power budget into his sustained damage outputs over poke.” Veigar's changes, meanwhile, are to discourage players toplay him in the bot lane position. Other notable changes include nerfing Thresh's CC chain, adjustments to Kha'Zix, and the Death's Dance (partial) rework.

Champion Buffs

Azir – Riot Phroxzon: “Q stab range reduction is to make it so that you should be able to better sync up Q and W ranged, so there isn't a weird pathing desync”
