League of Legends Patch 10.3 changes were revealed by Mark Yetter, the Lead Gameplay Designer for League of Legends, when he tweeted out an initial list of changes planned for the upcoming release.

Among the new changes will be a buff to experience from jungle camps, nerfs to Senna, Aphelios, Sett and buffs to Ezreal and Galio. While the changes have not yet been finalized, they give a good idea of what we can expect from Patch 10.3

League of Legends Patch 10.3 Jungle Experience Changes

The main change coming to jungle experience in Patch 10.3 will be the overall experience and gold offered by large monsters and Krugs.

The total amount of experience earned from Krugs will increase from 160 to 175 and the amount of gold will increase from 125 to 135. But, this increase comes with an increase to the Medium Krug and Small Krug experience and a decrease in the experience given by killing the Large Krug.

Large monsters will grant 10 more experience, but the amount of bonus experience gained from killing the first large monster will decrease by 15. There is also a slight change to jungle experience scaling which will see the amount of experience earned levels 4-6 increase by .05 times the original amount. These are hardly game breaking changes, but a decent start to fixing the jungle.

League of Legends Patch 10.3 Nerfs

At the top of the list of champions being nerfed are the recently released champions Aphelios, Sett and Senna.

Most of the nerfs are relatively minor with Leona only losing 20 damage on Eclipse (W) at level 18 and 10 damage on Zenith Blade (E) at levels 1-18. Aphelios' Calibrium marked follow-up range decreases from infinite to 2000.

There were some more significant nerfs for Akali and Senna. Minions Senna does not kill now have a 25 percent chance of dropping a soul and cannon minions Senna kills now have only a two percent chance of dropping a soul as opposed to 100 percent on Patch 10.2.

Akali's changes are even more significant, with the first cast of Perfect Execution (R) becoming a targeted ability instead of a skill shot and the movement speed while in Twilight Shroud (W) decreasing over two seconds.

League of Legends Patch 10.3 Buffs

A surprising amount of champions received buffs on Patch 10.3 including Ezreal, Corki, Azir and Yuumi.

The buffs to Ezreal are somewhat significant as he will now receive eight more mana per level and one percent more attack speed per level.

The buffs to other champions are negligible. For instance, Yuumi's Prowling Projectile (Q) will now deal 2.5 percent of the target's maximum health in additional damage and Galio's Winds of War (Q) will last for an additional .5 seconds and do one additional tick of damage.
