League of Legends’ resident knife cat, Rengar, is getting yet another rework, according to footage of his new kit shown on game designer David Capurro’s Twitter yesterday. Is this the fourth or fifth rework for the ol’ kitty? We’ve lost count.
This time should be a little bit different than his previous updates, though, because it appears to be more of a revert than a rework. The sneak peek shows Rengar with five bars of Ferocity and his Q simply being an enhanced basic attack, just like they were before his update in November 2016.
With his Q being a basic attack reset once more, we imagine his passive, Bonetooth Necklace, will also receive an update. Right now, the passive grants bonus AD, which will add up a lot with two basic attack resets granted from a Q and empowered Q.
In the past, the passive has provided utility boosts, like longer range on the leap and more speed on his ultimate, without affecting his damage directly. If the passive is reworked, it would probably head in that direction to avoid overpowering his new (old) Q.
No timeline has been given on Rengar’s update, but with gameplay footage reaching the public, hopefully it isn’t too far off.
