With League of Legends patch 11.8 due to arrive officially next week, Riot games have provided fans with details on some of the tentative changes they are planning for the next patch.

In a recent tweet, League of Legends gameplay design director Mark “Scruffy” Yetter revealed some of the tentative changes for the upcoming patch.

The jungle role looks set to receive a significant number of changes this time around, as the League of Legends devs have revealed changes for Darius, Zed, Morgana and Diana in the jungle role.

Yorick is also set to receive a series of nerfs, as his recent buffs in League of Legends patch 11.7 left him a bit overturned with the new lethality build path. So with patch 11.8, the League of Legends devs will be toning down his overall power and scaling.

LeBlanc and Lee Sin, on the other hand, will be getting buffs with the upcoming League of Legends patch, and they might finally be making their way back into the solo queue meta.
