League of Legends: Wild Rift Top Tier Champions in Patch 1.0A

Riot Games League of Legends: Wild Rift became the most downloaded iOS app of 2020 in all the beta regions. Just last week, Riot rolled out with November’s 1.0A patch in Wild Rift, which brought nerfs to champions like Blitzcrank, Vayne, and Xin Zhao. Later on, Riot deployed another small update that nerfed the damage on Ezreal’s first skill, ‘Mystic Shot’, and reduced the mana to the Attack Damage conversion ratio on one of Ezreal’s core item, ‘Muramana,’ from 2% to 1.5%.
