In League of Legends Patch 12.10, almost all champions were affected by Riot Games' hope to increase durability to reduce what many would call the "Too Much Damage" problem. Champions aren't the only thing affected, however; many aspects of the game have been tweaked to help Riot's goal of making all parts of the game experience durable. This includes Baron Nashor, Drakes and Turrets.
