League of Legends patch 12.2 will look to introduce extensive champion updates next week. Lots of picks are finally seeing their names on the buff and nerf list this time around.

12.2 will be the first significant update of the new season, and the developers will aim to balance out some rough edges that the preseason update brought.

12.2 Preview with stuff!Samira's new to this list, same reason as the💨bros.It's a meaty patch for sure, what are y'alls thoughts on it? https://t.co/AuwYDGOVUQ

The Rengar, Tahm Kench, and Janna updates will be the two biggest highlights of the patch, along with the nerfs that some assassin champions will get. Zed’s ultimate will get nerfed considerably, while Samira finally gets her name added to the buff list.

The Shieldbow nerfs in League of Legends patch 12.1 affected Yasuo, Yone, and Samira heavily, which is why they will receive some quality-of-life updates in 12.2.

It’s important to note that the below-mentioned changes are tentative, and Riot Games may look to tweak them further once the official update comes knocking.

Senna has been a bit weak in the new season so we have a buff going to PBE soon:QNow slows enemies by 20%(+6%/100AP)(+10%/100BAD) for 2s We felt that old glacial did a lot for Senna's pattern, especially as a support marksman, so we're trying adding a slow back onto her kit. https://t.co/cJXv7PaLsL
