After just two days on the live servers, the reworked Mordekaiser has been hit by the nerf hammer.
His base attack damage has dropped from 65 to 61, his base armor has gone from 39 to 37, his magic resist per level has dropped from 1.5 to 1.25, and his armor per level has dropped from 4 to 3.
His passive, Darkness Rise, which lets him deal damage and move faster when he hits three spells or attacks on enemy champions, has also been nerfed.
Darkness Rise’s base damage has decreased from 10-35.5 to 8-25, and its movement speed increase has dropped from 5-10% at levels 1-6 to 3/6/9% at levels 1/6/11. The percentage damage component of Darkness Rise has also dropped from 1-6.1% to 1-5% across all levels.
The nerf is on live servers now.
Mordekaiser has been dominating the top lane since his release earlier this week in Patch 9.12.
He has the highest win rate of any champion, winning a ridiculous 55% of games he appears in, and has a 13.6% pick rate, which also makes him the top-picked champion, according to data available on op.gg.
