Anivia mains might have something to look forward to in League of Legends patch 10.25.

With the introduction of the Mythic Items to the League of Legends Preseason 11, much of how champion itemization works has changed drastically.

The meta has shifted completely and item builds have become more situational than anything else.

Now Mythic Items are a core part of every champion build and with the nerf to Tear of the Goddess, previous core items such as Manamune and Archangel’s Staff are not as powerful as they used to be.

So champions like Ryze, Kassadin, Anivia, and Cassiopeia are not doing as well as they used to in previous patches. These champions are very mana hungry and not getting as much of it as they previously used to from a Tear item is making them impact the game later than they used to.

Anivia in particular is hurting quite a bit. It has been seasons since she was a meta pick in pro play and with the item reworks she has dropped further down in the tier list.

However, League of Legends gameplay design director Mark "Scruffy" Yetter comes bearing some good news for Anivia mains. In a recent tweet, he talks about some quality of life changes that the Cryophoenix might be receiving in League of Legends patch 10.25.

Yetter says that “with Anivia needing adjustments for 10.25, @RiotAzuBK wanted to expand the scope a bit and do a QoL pass on her.”

The goals outlines for her are:

  • Unbind her from Tear so it's an option not mandatory
  • Improve the reliability and flexibility of Q and R
