Yasuo changes reverted in latest League of Legends PBE update

The League of Legends patch cycle for 7.17 continued with another update Wednesday to the Public Beta Environment, which included reverts of Yasuo changes.

Most of the buffs to Yasuo that went live Friday in the PBE have been reverted. His base magic resist, magic resist growth, and his ultimate cast distance are back to their current live values. One change will remain to his passive shield, which is still weaker early and stronger late compared to the live value. It’s possible the balance team thought that the shield changes were enough for Yasuo, or perhaps a buff will take place in a future update.

Malphite receives more changes to his Q and his E

Following changes implemented Friday, Malphite will go through some further adjustments to his kit. The movement speed steal on his Q has been lowered from a flat 25 percent to 20, which is right in the middle of the current live value (which scales from 14 to 26 percent based on the rank of his Q). It still has a lower cooldown timer and a mana cost, though.

Malphite’s W will keep its new effect, which triples the bonus armor when his passive is still active. But the base bonus armor has been decreased by 5 percent at all ranks. This makes sense in the context that the bonus armor value will be tripled with the new effect, so some power has been taken away to compensate.

Ornn’s AP ratio on his ult has been reflected

The added 0.2 ability power ratio on Ornn’s ultimate’s initial cast and recast, which was added on Tuesday, has been properly reflected in the game.
