" The first of our World's focused patches. Since some Leagues are still qualifying for Worlds on this patch, we're holding the more speculative changes for 12.17. Looking to tap down a few outliers and bump up others, with Diana nerfs to tank and buffs to AP builds", said Riot Phroxzone on his Twitter profile, when revealing the changes.

Additionally, Diana, the current Queen of the jungle is being put into the "changes" category, as her power in the jungle is currently immense, but comes from the wrong source, allowing her to build tank items and still have a lot of damage.
