 LoL Patch 12.22 just dropped and it has changed the meta completely. Jungling is much easier than before and we've now got some companions on our side to keep us safe from any and all obstacles that could come in our way. But with these changes we've also got a few OP picks and champions. 

So we're going to go over the mid-patch update and see what is up with LoL Patch 12.22b. Which champions got buffed and what items are being nerfed by Riot right now?

System Updates in LoL Patch 12.22b

A couple of items are getting some updates from Riot. Heartsteel is one of the best items in the meta right now, but we've got a lot of other great new items, though some of them need a little bit of a push... therefore there are multiple item buffs in this mid-patch update.

Those are the biggest and most important changes for now, but be sure to check constantly, because there will likely be more mid-patch updates, especially since Patch 12.22 is going to be a three-week patch and not just a two-week patch as usual.
