A nerf is expected to be pushed forward for the item Edge of Night, according to Andrei “Meddler” van Roon, Riot’s lead champion designer. For those unaware of what it does, Edge of Night is an item that gives magic resist, attack damage, Lethality (armor penetration) and out of combat movement speed; in short, it is pretty broken.
Meddler finally revealed when these changes might occur, with many thinking the item will be reworked in Patch 7.5.
“We’re going to see if we can pull a nerf for Edge of Night forwards into 7.4, or at least do a low risk hotfix the same day 7.4 hits,” Meddler said. “Urgency on that feels high enough at this point we don’t think we should wait another patch. Most likely changes (still being discussed) are increasing the CD again and lowering the AD on it. Possible whatever changes are made will be temporary as well if the conclusion during 7.5 development is a different nerf is better long term.”
These changes could come in Patch 7.4, as recently said, and it is good to see a clear indication of what alterations might occur.
We will have more information when the specifics are revealed; most likely when the patch notes are released.
