Kindred is getting a slew of buffs for every skill except of her ultimate spell, according to the latest PBE update. The numbers show that her base attack went up to 57, her AD ratio for her Q went up to 75 percent, her W’s missile travel speed went up as well as its duration, and her E got cheaper in mana costs down to 50 at all ranks.
It seems like Kindred’s new makeover wasn’t really enough to put her in the good graces of junglers. If the words of Counter Logic Gaming’s Joshua “Dardoch” Hartnett hold any weight, he certainly thinks Kindred leaves much to be desired. This seems like Riot’s attempt to make Kindred more viable in the jungle, to create a new carnivorous breed.
On that same note, Rek’Sai will also receive some changes to offset a rework that made her a bit more vicious than before. The idea was to make her a predator rather than a tank, and in that pursuit Riot also lifted her up a bit by boosting her base damage to 57.5 and armor growth of 3.75.
