Runeterra’s singing sensation Seraphine is joining the ranks in League of Legends Patch 10.22.

A slew of balance changes are also arriving in this week’s patch leading up to November’s heavy-duty preseason.

Fiery duo Annie and Brand are receiving tweaks to their kits to allow for more flexibility in their roles. Outcasts Sejuani and LeBlanc are getting some much-needed love and attention, while meta carries Samira and Karthus are receiving nerfs.

Here’s the full list of changes for League Patch 10.22.

Champions

[New] Seraphine

Passive – Stage Presence

Q – High Note

  • Seraphine projects a pure note, dealing magic damage that’s increased by the target’s missing health percentage

W – Surround Sound

  • Seraphine surrounds her nearby allies in a song, granting herself and her allies movement speed and a shield. If Seraphine is already shielded, she can heal her nearby allies, restoring health based on how many allies are near her

E – Beat Drop

  • Seraphine unleashes a heavy soundwave, dealing magic damage to enemies in a line and slowing them. Enemies that are already slowed are rooted, and already rooted enemies are stunned

R – Encore

  • Seraphine takes the stage, projecting a captivating force that charms enemies and deals magic damage. Any champions struck (allies included) become part of the performance, extending the range of the ability and granting allies maximum Notes.
