Patch 9.22 marks the last update before League of Legends’ preseason begins, which looks to shake up the meta with some map adjustments, as well as Dragon and item changes.

Tomorrow’s update tunes down some overpowered late-game monsters, like Xayah and Kayle, while also buffing some unsung heroes. A new champion will also hit the Rift when Senna is finally freed from Thresh’s lantern. And the ranked season is scheduled to end on Nov. 19 at 3am CT, which means players only have two weeks to climb the ranked ladder.

Here are the full notes for League Patch 9.22.
