League of Legends Patch 10.14 Preview: Karthus Mid and Pyke Support Gets Buffed and Other Balance Changes on PBE

League of Legends is currently running patch 10.13, but we all look forward to the next patch to see what other champions will get buffed and nerfed. Right now, patch 10.14 is being tested on the PBE (Public Beta Environment) client and thanks to the latest update from Mark Yetter on Twitter, we’ve got the updated changelist for all the nerfs and buffs. Let’s check them all together below.

Some of the balance changes below may be tweaked before they all go to the live client on July 8 when Patch 10.14 will be available.
