League of Legends Patch 10.5 Preview: Orrn and Sett Nerfed, Kayn, Graves and Lissandra Buffed Among Other Balance Changes and More

League of Legends patch 10.5 should go live this week on Wednesday, March 4th. The official patch notes will be released tomorrow, but looking at the entire changes on the LoL PBE client for the 10.5 cycle, we have a good idea of what buffs and nerfs are coming our way.

Note that some of the changes may not be released with the patch since the PBE content is subject to change.. For instance, as we all know, the Wukong rework may again be scrapped and sent to testing once again, which is why we choose not to mention it in this article since it’s quite extensive. We will provide a Tweet from Riot August at the end of our list for those eager to see the latest changes to the Monkey King.

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