The proposed changes for Patch 10.14 have been revealed

Like clockwork, one week after players have had time to settle and adjust to the Patch 10.13 changes, the proposed change list for Patch 10.14 has been revealed. The list contains exciting buffs for some of the most popular champions in League of Legends that have gone under the radar recently, such as Kha’Zix, Riven, and Zed.

Riot Scruffy, the lead gameplay designer for League of Legends, revealed the list of provisional Patch 10.14 changes on Twitter earlier in the week. In total, there are expected to be 12 champions changes and 2 rune changes on Patch 10.14.

The rune changes see Ghost and Predator buffed. Ghost is set to have its movement speed slightly increased at all levels, improving the mobility and maneuverability of solo laners in team fights and when roaming. Predator is set to see its damage increased slightly and its cooldown reduced after its recent changes.

Some of the most overpowered champions in League of Legends right now will be nerfed, of course, including Ezreal, Varus, and Volibear. Ezreal’s Arcane Shift could see its early cooldown increased to reduce the Prodigal Explorer’s safety in lane. Varus’ obnoxious Q damage is set to take another heavy nerf. And Volibear’s huge attack speed and healing will also be decreased.

As for champion buffs, the most interesting has got to be Pyke. The balance team are looking to limit the number of roles the Bloodharbor Ripper can be played in to 1.

Pyke will see his Armor and MR per level reduced, making him much more vulnerable to poke in the mid lane. To compensate for these nerfs, the support aspect of his kit will be buffed heavily, including a reduced Bone Skewer cooldown and increased Phantom Undertow damage.

Similarly, the balance team hope to force Karthus back into the mid lane by reducing his monster damage and increasing his base health. Other champion buffs include Kha’Zix’s improved Q isolation damage, Riven’s increased passive damage, and Zed’s reduced W cooldown.

Here’s a full list of the Patch 10.14 changes, all subject to change:
