League of Legends Patch 10.25 will roll out on Wednesday, Dec. 9. It will introduce a new champion, champion balancing, item changes, new champion skins and more. This is the third patch for Preseason 2021. Overall, the patch attempts to buff AD carry and support items. It will be no surprise if ADC will be the role to fight for next patch.

Based on the current PBE patch notes, here are the five best items in League of Legends patch 10.25.

5 Best Items in League of Legends Patch 10.25

5. Sunfire Aegis

Ah, both the most hated and loved item: Sunfire Aegis. Even though Bami's Cinder and Sunfire Aegis receive nerfs in Patch 10.25, their damage and Immolate ability stay the same. We will expect the nerfs to slow down tank scaling, but the Immolate stacks and AOE damage are undeniably game-changing. This is the reason tanks dominated exceptionally high win-rates in Patch 10.23 and 10.24.

4. Imperial Mandate

The upcoming patch sees massive buffs to many Support items such as Bandleglass Mirror, Moonstone Renewer, Shurelia's Battlesong, Locket of the Iron Solari, Ardent Censer, Staff of Flowing Water, and Zeke's Convergence. Imperial Mandate is one of them. It can be purchased at only 2500 gold now. For support players' perspectives, initial proc decreases from 60-100 to 36-60. For supports who empower ADCs, Imperial Mandate's ally proc is buffed from 60-100 to 90-150.

3. Galeforce

Galeforce has been the worst Mythic items for AD carries in the preseason. This patch fixes that. Galeforce's attack damage is now increased from 55 to 60. More importantly, its cooldown is reduced from 90 seconds to only 60. Its passive, Cloudburst, enables ADCs to dash to a target location with a range of 450 (200 minimum).

2. Infinity Edge

Infinity Edge has long been the go-to item for crit-based champions. This patch introduces a buff to the item. Instead of granting 8% crit damage for each 20% crit chance, champions will need to have items with 60% crit chance to earn 35% crit damage. Building IE as third item will be a smart move.

1. Luden's Tempest

Not everyone is happy with the switch from Cooldown Reduction (CDR) to Ability Haste. For champions who usually spam their abilities, it is very painful to not constantly have their abilities ready. Luden's Tempest's Ability Haste is being buffed from 10 to 20, at the expense of reduced Magic Penetration from 10 to 6. Champions like Zoe can now abuse her Sleepy Trouble Bubble (E) more often, forcing her enemy to sidestep her skills even more.
