Season 14 has officially started and as such we are getting a preview of what's to come in the future. Check out what is on the PBE next with Patch 14.5. This patch will address champions that have such serious problems that a simple item or champion fix wouldn't do enough. 

You might also want to check out the huge amount of changes that we got in League of Legends Patch 14.4 to have better context for the 14.5 changes.

Seraphine is getting some work done. Riot is tired of the champion only being played in the bot lane caster position and wants to fix her back into the support role. She was initially designed as a mid laner, but this idea has since been scrapped.

Rek'Sai was pretty gutted after the changes in 14.4 so these 14.5 changes should bring her up to speed again.
