The Magical Cat might be coming back. 

Yuumi, previously one of the best supports in League of Legends, is scheduled to receive a buff to her passive’s mana restore in Patch 10.15, according to lead gameplay designer Mark “Scruffy” Yetter. This means Yuumi won’t have to detach from her teammate as frequently since the restoration levels will be increased. It seems like Riot is directly targeting Yuumi’s sustain in the laning phase, which is essential for a support. 

Furthermore, this means Yuumi will be able to use her abilities more frequently. Spamming heals, gaining shields, you name it. But League players likely hope this buff won’t overload her passive mana restoration to the point that she becomes completely broken once more. 

These aren’t the only buffs planned for Patch 10.15, however. 

Skarner has around a 47.97-percent win rate in the jungle, according to Champion.gg. Since he’s considered one of the weaker junglers in the meta, Riot is set to buff his Q Crystal Slash damage while increasing his empowered damage. Skarner’s E Fracture won’t lose travel speed after hitting enemies, either. 

The visionary ruler of Noxus, Swain, is also set to receive a buff. Swain’s passive, Ravenous Flock—an essential part of his kit—will receive a shorter cooldown to 10 seconds but now scales with cooldown reduction. But his mana restore is set to be removed. The cooldown on his Q, Death’s Hand, will be decreased. 

Caitlyn is set to receive a buff alongside Irelia, Gragas, and Shen, too. Patch 10.15 is set to be released on July 22.
