In this League patch, there will be a new Sone update as well as new Coven skins with many changes in meta.
The most remarkable change in patch 11.16 is the adjustment of Sona. especially when players are criticizing that she is Seraphine 2.0. Not just buff her power, developers also update her skills and her passive.
In this update, many Junglers will be buffed, worth noting is Jarvan IV, Nunu, and Shaco (my favorite champion). Meanwhile, Jhin and Sivir will also be buffed with the aim of creating a new meta on Bot Lane. About Maokai and Vladimir, they will be brought back on Top Lane in this patch after a few modifications.
About nerfs, there is no surprise that Tahm Kench will be nerfed in this patch due to his influences on Top Lane. Moreover, Diana, Xin Zhao, and Ziggs will also be nerfed to balance the meta while they are dominating every rank with an extremely high win rate.
