Mark Yetter, a Riot Games employee, revealed the balance targets for patch 10.21. The new patch will bring changes to jungle champions which means that we could see some shifts in the meta.

League of Legends' lead gameplay designer, Mark Yetter, also known as Riot Scruffy revealed the list of champions they are going to change in the upcoming 10.21 patch. The specific changes aren't out yet, but we have a brief overview of what the new patch might be including.

The list of champions that will receive buffs this patch is as follows:

  • Corki
  • Aphelios
  • Trundle
  • Lee Sin
  • Karma
  • Udyr

After the recent nerfs to his Safe Guard (W), Lee Sin has seen a pretty big drop in his overall win rate for the jungle position. Depending on how big this buff is, he could make a return to the meta.

Even though Aphelios has been buffed a number of times now over the last couple of patches, he still holds the by far lowest win rate. These buffs need to be some significant ones if we're going to see him return to his previous glory.

Champions that will receive nerfs this patch include:

  • Samira
  • Hecarim
  • Graves
  • Nidalee
  • Camille
  • Pantheon

Riot's most recent addition to the champion roster, Samira, has been hot fixed the day after she got released. The balance team won't stop there as she still seems a bit overpowered.

Hecarim, Graves, and Nidalee are the three strongest jungler at the moment. Their true strength has been exposed at the ongoing World Championship in which they have the highest presence for the jungle position.
