Taliyah’s Season 12 rework successfully moves the LoL mage back to the mid lane

Taliyah is back in the League of Legends meta where she belongs – as a mid laner. The mid-scope update for Season 12 has successfully brought the Stoneweaver back to their intended home while their popularity and win rate skyrocket.

It’s been a while since Taliyah saw the light of day in League of Legends. Since big changes in Season 8 gutted the then-popular jungler and mid laner, only the very dedicated have touched the Stoneweaver.

This general disinterest led Riot to overhaul Taliyah in their now-patented “mid-scope updates.” The changes have all traded her burst damage for added utility and teamfighting power ⁠ – and for some, it’s brought back the old Taliyah.

Taliyah is back home in the mid lane of League of Legends following her mid-scope update for Season 12.

After the rework, she’s finally broken back into the League of Legends meta. According to LoLalytics, their overall play rate has increased six-fold from 1.26% to 7.74%. She also finds more success with a win rate of over 50% in the mid lane first time in season 12.

Where Taliyah is set in Summoner’s Rift has also changed. Players are increasingly bringing them back to the mid lane, with the ratio swinging from 55.4% jungle and 16.1% mid in patch 12.8 to 35.1% and 52.4% respectively as of the latest update.

The swing in mid lane priority comes in part from the Q changes. AOE’s return to its primary Waveclear ability has made it much easier to hustle in minions, and the ability to destroy Worked Ground keeps them from having to lane unsteadily.

She can’t move as effectively with changes to her ultimate, but she’s still better than most mid laners as she can leap into battle from thousands of units away.

She’s also getting some general bug fixes in the durability update that could help players find the Stoneweaver again.

Whether Taliyah can make her way back into the pro game meta this summer remains to be seen, but given the success of mid-scope updates like Ahri, and more recently Olaf, that’s not out of the realm of possibility.
