General

  • Guan Yu has struggled a bit this season. While he has good utility options and damage potential, it can be difficult to have consistent pressure. We are bringing up his Damage on Warrior's Will, while also allowing Taolu Assault's Protection Steal to last for a longer duration.
  • This will help Guan Yu contribute more to a team while also giving him protections for a longer period of time, helping him stay in the thick of a fight.

Taolu Assault Taolu Assault

  • Increased Duration of Protection Steal from 3s -> 3/3.5/4/4.5/5s.

General

  • Guan Yu is another healer seeing a shift. His healing is being overall reduced but he is receiving a large damage increase to his ultimate to compensate. Warrior's Will is also receiving an adjustment that is focused around removing high slows that self apply diminishing returns. We will be watching this shift closely to see where he falls once new items are in play.

  • Guan Yu's is gaining a new set of powerful tools to apply to different combat scenarios but his passive is being adjusted to only proc when at full stacks. Guan Yu has been locked into the role of group healer in the past but his new Passive will give him more ways to influence a team fight other than just healing.

General

  • Guan Yu is a Warrior who excels around being in a fight, shredding Protections, healing his team and dashing through targets. We wanted to reward him more for doing these things.
