Dr. Mundo’s win rate improved in 2021, but it seems his play rate has not. Since the rework, he’s been experiencing an identity crisis and his fans are still struggling to accept a few of the features in his kit. Riot is now looking to make changes. 

Champions should be able to rely on rework, but it seems that reworks can also help them. Dr. Mundo rework hasn’t landed as well than others. Volibear, Fiddlesticks… they’ve both become pretty meta well, so what is wrong with Dr. Mundo? This is what we’ll be looking at right now. 

  • Riot to Change Top Lanes


What was wrong with Dr. Mundo? 

His reworked abilities were not as intuitive as his older ones. It has caused a lot of confusion for players, especially Dr. Mundo mains who have gotten used to his abilities. Many Dr. Mundo mains aren’t excited to be playing in the top lane. 

The following is an extract from the Riftfeeed champion statistics pageWe can see that Dr. Mundo has a good 51.5% win rate but only 0.7% pick rate. This shows that Dr. Mundo is not the only one who struggles to play him. But, there are those who manage to win. (c), Riot Games/RiftFeed

What Changes Will Riot Implement? 

Now that we know that Dr. Mundo is having some problems, Riot will listen to the community, and will make adjustments. and possible changes for the large man in the future. Riot Twin Enso sent a tweet with possible changes Dr. Mundo’s Kit

Dr. Mundo will be stronger in the end game, but he will have less AD in the beginning stages. This could affect his laning. Before we get into the details, let’s look at the changes and discuss the impact they will have on Mundo’s future.

Dr. Mundo Abilities Proposed changes for Dr. Mundo
Goes where he pleases (P).
  • Lose 7% current health, gain 8% max Health –> Lose 3% current health, gain 4% max health
  • Max Health regen: 0.8-1.6% max health per 5 seconds (linear progression) –> 0.5-2.25% (non-linear progression queals at roughly level 11)
Heart Zapper (W).
  • Never lose half of your Gray Health.
Blunt Force Trauma (E)
  • Bonus AD: 15/20/25/30/35 + 25/30/35/40/45 based on missing health –> 4% max Health
  • [REMOVED] Small jungle monsters instantly killed
  • Monster damage: 200% –> 250%
Maximum Dosage (R)
  • [Removed] Bonus AD
  • Missing Health as max health: 8/11.5/15% –> 15/20/25%

Dr. Mundo will have less ADHe will have better HP scaling and HP regen as a result of these changes. Even if he does not hit an enemy, the W will help him to regain his health. It’s a welcome change. However, some fans are concerned about the lack of AD. 

Some fans stated that they would like to see his W make more changes since. The enemies are mostly just ignoring the zapper at this point. One fan suggested adding a brief stun to it when it explodes. A second fan wants it to be able last a little longer. 

  • But, wait! Who exactly is Dr. Mundo, anyway? Was he in Arcane?


The bonus AD is being taken from his ultimate Although it is difficult to believe that Mundo would have AD problems, the addition of AD would be in his E, along with health scaling. This would mean that it would start earlier for players. These changes will make Dr. Mundo more popular. 

These Dr. Mundo modifications won’t ship until you wait, so you might have to wait longer. LoL Patch 12.15. As I mentioned earlier, these suggestions are only suggestions. So be ready for a future patch that will have some Mundo adjustments! Just in time for the 2022 League of Legends World Championship?
