League of Legends Patch 10.2 PBE Update: Aphelios Nerfed, Draven, Karma, Ziggs and Others Buffed

A new patch in League of Legends is currently being tested in the PBE client. We’re talking about Patch 10.2, which is going to roll out to the live servers on Thursday, January 23.

While Patch 10.1 did come with a lot of content for both League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics, this patch will focus on balancing some champions and items. This time, even the Rift Herald had to suffer.

Let’s take a look at what’s going to change with Patch 10.2 in League of Legends. We also have an update for Patch 10.2 in Teamfight Tactics here.

Also, some plans for Patch 10.3 are also settled when it comes to nerfing Akali! Read more about her at the bottom of this article.

If you were wondering about Wukong, he had some changes over this week in PBE 10.2, but everything has been reverted to normal, meaning Wukong will continue to be tested in Patch 10.3 – more on this matter in Riot Lutzburg’s Twitter post and comments here.
