Sejuani and Xayah are likely to be buffed in League of Legends Patch 10.22

Twelve champions are set to receive changes in Patch 10.22, the final update of Season 10. League of Legends is heading towards the end of the ranked and competitive seasons, and all eyes are on the upcoming preseason changes. Nonetheless, there’s still some balancing to take care of ahead of the final few weeks of Season 10.

According to Riot Scruffy’s fortnightly patch preview post, there will be twelve major changes heading to Summoner’s Rift on Patch 10.22. The lead gameplay designer for League of Legends revealed the list of changes earlier today stating that they are “not 100% locked but pretty close”.

The patch preview has been posted to inform and prepare the player base for the upcoming changes, set to hit live servers on the morning of Wednesday, 28 October 2020. Keep an eye on the Riot Games service status page for updates about maintenance times!

As for the changes, there are a few key buffs to look out for, all of which are subject to change before the official patch notes are released on Tuesday, 29 October.

Annie’s E – Molten Shield will now scale with her ability power and can be cast on nearby allies which could have a big impact on her gameplay in both the mid lane and support roles. Similarly, Brand’s damage per second is set to see an improvement, based on how much ability power the Burning Veangeance has in his arsenal.

Other changes include increased damage for LeBlanc and Sejuani, while Lulu and Zed’s control over solo lanes could be drastically reduced if their nerfs go ahead.

Here is the full list of tentative changes set to hit Summoner’s Rift with Patch 10.22:
