League of Legends Patch 11.6 looks to be the death of mages and the revival of the jungle. Riot Games gameplay design director, Mark Yetter, put out a tweet discussing the incoming changes for Patch 11.6 and there're some big changes on the horizon.

League of Legends Patch 11.6 Preview

The upcoming patch for League of Legends is coming with some key item changes that will change the landscape of the game. Most notably there will be big nerfs coming to Seeker's Armguard and Stridebreaker. The Seeker's Armguard nerf will leave mid lane mages extremely vulnerable to enemy assassins because of the major decrease in armor. In the top lane however, the lowered health to Stridebreaker will open up the champion pool a little as AD bruisers like Darius and Wukong won't be able to bully in-lane as easily.

We'll also be seeing a couple of key system changes that'll lead to the return of the jungle role. Gromp will be receiving an experience buff which will help junglers reach their level spikes in the early game without having to rely on successful ganks. The smite buff will also make sure that certain champions with health problems while farming remain healthy so that they can perform ganks without worrying about being killed off easily.

Along with these changes Patch 11.6 is going to come with some champion buffs, nerfs, and reworks. Everyone should be extremely excited for everything that this newest version of League of Legends will have to offer. According to the patch schedule, players should expect 11.6 to be live on Mar 17.
