Yuumi’s League of Legends rework: release date, new abilities & more

Riot Games

Yuumi’s full rework is finally here after she was nerfed into the ground a few patches ago, and she’s set to arrive on patch 13.5. Here’s her full list of her new abilities, her release date, and more about one of League of Legends’ most controversial champions.

Yuumi is almost inarguably the most hated champion in League of Legends. There are plenty of people who main her, but the widespread ire for this champion got to the point where crowds would boo pro teams that picked her on stage.

She was extremely meta in pro play for over a year, prompting the balance team to nerf this champion to the point of non-viability. Her winrate bottomed out at around 38%, and her pick rate has plummeted since the nerfs.

Fortunately, her rework is coming and will hopefully make this once-great champion a bit more viable. However, it’s yet unclear whether or not this rework will solve some of Yuumi’s biggest problems.

Yuumi rework full abilities revealed

Yuumi’s rework is pretty similar in form to her old kit, but very different functionally. She has a distinct focus on healing and defensive play rather than her abnormally high damage output she had before the nerfs. Additionally, her E has changed from a heal to a shield with her healing being distributed to other parts of her kit.

Riot have also kept their vision for Yuumi being a beginner-friendly champion, lowering her price to 450 Blue Essence and making her easily available to new players.

Here’s full kit was revealed in a series of tweets from Riot Phroxzon, with a few changes implemented before her release on League of Legends patch 13.5.
