Janna continued to be tweaked in League of Legends PBE

Janna continues to be tweaked as she received some more changes Monday in the League of Legends Public Beta Environment.

The Friday update to the PBE included another nerf for Janna, which reduced the bonus attack damage to allied champions that she shields at all ranks. The Monday update did away with that change, though more could certainly be on the way.

Although the change was proposed in the PBE, Rioter Maple Nectar wrote Friday that the changes would probably not go to the live patch. This was separated from the hotfixed changes to Janna on Wednesday, which was a collection of nerfs to her base stats and the mana cost of her W.

As Janna continues to enjoy a win rate of 52.65 percent in ranked play despite the recent gameplay changes and hotfixed nerfs, Riot Games is still looking at what else it can do to scale her down. With the popularity of the item Ardent Censer, Janna has become one of the most powerful supports in the game, tilting the laning phase in her team’s favor with simple mechanics. As a response, Ardent Censer has also been changed, but the outlook continues to be murky.
