LoL Patch 10.16 notes: Yone and tons of champion balance changes

As we enter this 10.16 cycle update, the Spirit Blossom event continues to bring more content to League of Legends with the arrival of four new skins. As teased last week, Ahri, Cassiopeia, Kindred, and Riven will indeed soon join the rank of this new skin family. By using these skins, you'll earn more favor for Spirit Bonds.

Since 10.16 is supposed to be the Summer Playoffs patch, we were expecting a lot from this patch, and we weren't disappointed: in total 27 champions are either buffed or nerfed.

However, the biggest news is the addition of Yone, the 150th champion to join the League.

Patch 10.16 is expected to hit live on August 5.
