The proposed changes for Patch 10.15 have been revealed

One week after the official release of Patch 10.14, the League of Legends player base have been given an insight into the proposed changes heading to Summoner’s Rift on Patch 10.15. This update includes 13 champion changes, 3 item changes, and 1 rune change.

The list of tentative Patch 10.15 changes was released early in the week by League of Legends’ lead gameplay designer, Riot Scruffy. Although most of these changes will remain untouched between now and the official patch release next week, they are still subject to change until the patch notes are revealed.

Patch 10.15 is set to contain a bunch of interesting changes including huge number changes for both Skarner and Swain’s kits. On top of that, there are also nerfs for some of the most powerful champions in the current meta including Aphelios, Fiddlesticks, Lee Sin, Ornn, Thresh, and Twisted Fate.

As for buffs, Patch 10.15 could see the return of Caitlyn to the bot lane as her base AD is set to increase, as well as a resurgence for Irelia with her increased passive attack speed. Gragas and Shen will also benefit from big buffs.

Outside of champion changes, the Spellthief’s Edge item line is likely to have its mana regeneration and AP numbers improved to help out mage supports. Unsealed Spellbook will also be hit with a heavy cooldown nerf.

And let’s not forget that League of Legends’ newest champion, Lillia, is set to be released sometime on Patch 10.15. Here is the full list of tentative changes:
