Spirit Blossom skins aside, lol patch 10.16 has begun, and this one is much simpler than in previous patch notes. Why? Well, Riot Games is focusing much more on champions played within a professional setting to ensure the meta is not stale for upcoming tournaments this year.
League Patch 10.16 Nerfs
Volibear, Nautilus, Sett, Syndra, and Ashe are just some of the champions that will be targeted for Patch 10.16 for pro play nerfs. Mark Yetter stated Riot Games are "Diversifying the playoffs meta as much as we can before fine-tuning it for worlds."

League Patch 10.16 Buffs
What's strange is that on this set of preview notes, there are more buffs than nerfs at the moment. Of course, this is a preview. Things could change, but it's nice to see the inclusion of more champions in the buffed section.
Yasuo, Lucian, Ziggs, Neeko, and Jax are just some of the champions on the buff list - yes, Yasuo is getting buffed. We'll be keen to see the actual numbers to find out how significant this buff will be.
Yone Patch 10.16 Release
League of Legends Patch 10.16 will introduce Yone, next champion to enter Summoner's Rift, which we guessed would make an appearance!
