League of Legends Patch 10.8: Full notes and updates

New jungler players rejoice, your prayers have been answered!

The latest League of Legends patch is bringing new balance changes for the jungle, aiming to help out underperforming champions in the early game and nerf the general power of ganking a lane.

The funnel strategies that are extremely obnoxious have also been targeted to reduce their power and disincentivize running them.

Here are the full notes for League’s Patch 10.8.

Solo kills will grant more experience in the early levels by 20 percent, while assisted kills will grant less by 20 percent. These buffs will be applied up until level six only and be reduced for level seven and eight.
