Riot’s ongoing efforts to refine the jungle experience have led to this significant development. The adjustments aim to bolster the role of jungle pets, addressing areas where they currently fall short.
Key Changes to Jungle Pets
- Increased Healing: The update will enhance the healing capabilities of jungle pets, allowing for more sustained engagements and strategic depth.
- Reduced Base Damage: A reduction in the base damage dealt to epic monsters by jungle pets will balance their enhanced utility.
