Why arent there changes to Katarina Veigar and Mordekaiser in Patch 5 3

Meddler Final PortraitKat changes didn’t quite do what we’d hoped so they’ve been pulled for now. Might get revisited at some point, no definitive plans though.

Veigar and Morde changes are tentatively scheduled for 5.4 – they’ve proved to be tougher jobs than originally hoped.

Current plans for Mordekaiser

Meddler Final PortraitCurrent direction with Morde involves:

  • Making him tankier (let him survive in a fight longer, align with his thematics)
  • Shifting him to more of a sustained damage dealer, less of a burst character (better match with a tanky champ, play up the teamplay on both sides from someone being tagged by his ult, rather than just having someone vanish in a cloud of damage and a Ghost appear).

Will you change him into a fighter or will he still be able to nuke enemies

Meddler Final PortraitCurrent intent is that he’ll still build AP and be based around his spells, but will live longer/kill slower.

Will you buff Veigar to compensate for the removal of DFG

Meddler Final PortraitOdds are very high Veigar won’t just be straight buffed. His kit’s got some serious counterplay issues (undodgeable instant stun when used right, two point and click nukes) that we need to address. Bundled with counterplay improvements though should be some better tools for Veigar himself (e.g. less binary tools, so he’s got better options in tough lanes, lower mana costs, lower CDs, bit more range on some stuff etc – note these aren’t set in stone changes though, just possibilities).

With you on the megalomania feel, and we’ve got no desire to change that.

Follow Up

Meddler Final PortraitAs above Veigar’s got some counterplay problems. We want to make him healthier to play against, so it’s ok if he’s strong, rather than buffing him only to feel we immediately have to nerf him because of how he can be to play against.

Why dont you make Veigars Q a skillshot or add a delay to his E

Meddler Final PortraitQ as skillshot’s one of the things we’re trying, not sure if it’s currently on the kit in testing or not.

Giving E a brief delay to play up the ‘where do I stand inside the cage?’ aspect, and then potentially increasing its range or lowering its CD’s also being investigated.
