According to Andrei “Meddler” Van Roon, the patch will be lowering both you could check here: https://www.lolsolved.gg/Neeko/build base attack damage and attack speed. Her attack speed will be significantly lowered from 3.5 percent per level to 1.5 percent. Her attack damage is changing from three percent per level to two percent. Meanwhile, her on-hit damage on her W ability is being reduced from 50 to 170 to 50 to 130.
After a short delay, Neeko leaps into the air, slowing enemies in the area and gaining a shield that increases in size based on the number of enemies within the area. Upon landing, Neeko bursts with spiritual energy, dealing a large amount of damage to to all enemies in the area stunning for 1.25 seconds. Neeko tosses a magical spiral in a straight line, rooting anything it comes in contact with. The last champion hit will be rooted for longer.
Hitting a champion with 3 separate attacks or abilities within 3s deals bonus adaptive damage. With these two combined, you will be dealing massive damage through out the whole game. Executioner Calling can help in this match up but will slow your purchase of Boots. Sett can catch Neeko if he rushes Tier 2 Boots so make sure to keep your distance once he starts rushing with his Q. MinorNot much of a threat but if you ever see a Yorick one trick who is able to play against an auto range match up, then yorick is able to be a threat to neeko. His Maid is difficult to kill during the laning phase.
You should start by leveling up her q ability first. Unlike other root abilities, Tangle-Barbs roots everything it passes through and has no limit to how many units it can hit. You should look to toss Tangle-Barbs through a minion wave as hitting at least two minions will make the spiral empowered and will root the enemy for longer. The only way the enemy can be safe from a Neeko root is to be out of its range, which just isn’t practical most of the time, especially during laning phase. Throwing Tangle-Barbs through the minion wave when your opponent tries to farm will allow you to catch them easily and set up a gank, or simply allow you to get some poke in.
The build takes time to ramp up but is very strong when fully online. It really depends upon the matchup and team composition but be sure to try her out. As the match progresses, it is best to get the maximum out of it and have a strong ability to build a lead and dominate your opponent. Don’t turn into a champion when you spot an enemy. Focus on knocking out your opponent with CSE and gaining experience. It’s hard to see how Riot can annoy a champion without reconfiguring new objects and buildings.
This drastic patch eliminated Neeko’s chances of seeing competitive play as a bottom rink and took away her new build potential. In patch 9.5, Riot Games introduced a hotfix to prevent players from accumulating attack damage and attacking speed items for them. Due to their drastic attack speed and hit damage, the Neeko Build was taken out of the solo snake and Storm was dead.
