Patch 9.17 hits Summoner’s Rift tomorrow and it’s bringing a slew of champion changes that could have an impact on League’s meta.

Only Aurelion Sol and Kayle are in for major changes, while most other champions will see slight adjustments. Qiyana is getting a couple of nerfs after becoming a terror on the Rift, while Kalista will receive a few buffs to her base stats to help add some power back into the pick.
