A League of Legends hotfix headed to the game in the near future will tweak the numbers on Akali and Yuumi's kits, according to lead gameplay designer Mark "Scruffy" Yetter.

Riot Games will increase Akali's Shuriken Flip (E) damage from 40-160 to 50-190, reduce her Perfect Execution (R)'s cooldown from 160-100 to 120-60 and increase its first cast's damage from 85-215 to 125-325.

These buffs come just days after League of Legends Patch 10.3 nerfed Akali extensively, making her Five Point Strike (Q) more expensive, reducing the movement speed provided by her Twilight Shroud (W) and reduced the range of Perfect Execution.

Yuumi will see her Prowling Projectile (Q) base damage increased from 40-165 to 40-190 and her Zoomies (E) base heal increased from 70-190 to 70-210. Riot Games buffed both abilities in Tuesday's Patch 10.3.

Yetter did not share an expected release date for the hotfix, saying only he would update players via his Twitter when the fix went live. Eighteen hours have passed since his initial tweet without followup.
