5 Changes We Want to See in League of Legends Patch 10.7

League of Legends Patch 10.7 is next up as fans are diving into the newly released Wukong rework and more on live servers. Season 10 is one of the craziest seasons yet in the game's history offering multiple changes to the top lane, jungle and more.

Here are the five changes we want to see in League of Legends Patch 10.7.

5 Changes We Want to See in League of Legends Patch 10.7

1. Wukong Nerfs

Reworked Wukong came out on Patch 10.6 performing well above the target, with a 55 percent win rate in Platinum and above elo, the highest win rate of any champion played on the current patch. From the start, it seemed his kit was going to be well over-tuned, with stacking bonus armor and health regeneration from Stone Skin (Passive) and Warrior Trickster (W) and multiple activation Cyclone (R).

Wukong needs a few adjustments on Patch 10.7 to make him a balanced champion. For instance, changing the stacking mechanic on Wukong's Stone Skin or lowering the amount of damage dealt by the clone created by Warrior Trickster. Whatever it takes, Wukong certainly needs an adjustment to bring him line with other top laners and champions on Summoner's Rift.

2. Senna Nerfs

The idea of a marksman support was certainly niche and creative, but its implementation left a lot to be desired. Senna started as one of the premier AD carries in Season 10 and after a few nerfs looked destined to be relegated back to her intended role as a support. But, innovations from teams like FlyQuest showed that Senna could still take a support item, and be paired with a support that would farm the wave instead.

Senna was able to effectively stack souls this way, while still collecting more gold than arguably she could while taking the CS in lane. When paired with a Sett, it created a tandem of strong mid game champions that was almost impossible to stop. Another round of nerfs to Senna is in order to bring her back into the support role and bring bot lane back to where it needs to be in Season 10.

3. Galio Buffs

Galio is a champion that's been utterly gutted since the change that grounded him while casting Shield of Durand (W). He could use a series of buffs to bring him back into the meta. Even just reverting that one change would do wonders to see him come back into professional play.

There are also some alternatives to that change, like giving the shield Galio gets from Shield of Durand to allies standing in Galio's Hero's Entrance (R).

4. Jungle Experience Changes

The jungle has had its own set of issues ever since jungle experience and gold was reworked at the beginning of Season 10. This led to rise of the four powerhouse junglers in League of Legends Patch 10.6, Elise, Lee Sin, Rek'Sai, and Olaf. Other junglers that can avoid lanes while still scaling, like Karthus, are still viable, but those four have dominated the meta.

That's because the decreased jungle experience put a premium on junglers who could impact lanes early before falling hopelessly behind in the mid game. Junglers that pulled off successful early ganks got even more an advantage by being able to soak one or two waves of minion experience, putting them ahead of a jungler who just cleared camps or failed a gank elsewhere on the map. The experience difference between junglers and laners made Level 6 junglers largely irrelevant, since they'd be ganking laners two or three levels ahead of them and by that time the lanes had already been decided for the most part.

The experience from the jungle has to be fixed sooner or later, and Patch 10.7 is as good a time as any to make jungle relevant again.

5. At Least One April Fools Joke Somewhere in the Patch Notes

It's as simple as it sounds. The release date of April 1 has to be more than just a coincidence for Patch 10.7 to be effective. Releasing a fake set of Patch Notes early on April 1 or teasing a new fake champion would be the perfect way to pull of an April's Fools joke that fans of the game and members of the community could appreciate. And let's face it, if there's one thing League of Legends needs, it's a bit of humor every once in a while.
