League of Legends Patch 10.5 Notes – Balance Changes to Summoners Rift Champions, Items and More

League of Legends patch 10.5 goes live in the early hours of March 4th, so Riot has just released the official patch notes. Here, you will only see the full balance changes list Patch 10.5 will bring tomorrow.

You’ll notice Wukong has again been pushed to testing for PBE 10.6, which isn’t really surprising since it’s been going like that for the past few months. Nonetheless, we’ve got an Amumu nerf and Sona is getting back her W speed. Add the buff to support items and we think she could be back in the game, this time only as a support and not a top laner! You can check out the detailed patch notes along with the skins, bugfixes and miscellaneous, by following this link to the League of Legends website.

Let’s check out the balance changes in the following list.
