Once again, Riot Games Lead Gameplay Designer, Mark Yetter, brings us the Preview of the next update coming to League of Legends: Patch 10.25, a very big update, the last of the season, that seeks to improve the bot lane performance and to adjust many items before the year ends.

As you can see in the list provided by Mark Yetter, nineteen items will be modified alongside the Lethality on ranged champs.
This means a great buff for the bot lane since three ADC Mythic Items are being improved, together with other important items like the Infinity Edge, Rapidfire Cannon, Immortal Shieldbow, or Kraken Slayer.
Plus, the bot lane will get stronger thanks to the price reduction of some Support items, like the Bandleglass Mirror, Shurelia’s Battlesong, Imperial Mandate, Moonstone Renewer, and Locket of the Iron Solari.
On the other hand, we have some nerfs to tanky items such as Sunfire Aegis, Frostfire Gauntlet, and Turbo Chemtank, while the rest of the listed items will be adjusted too, in order to benefit lethality champs and assassins.
All these changes to items come alongside some modifications to many Champions.
Eight Champions will be less powerful with the release of Patch 10.25, after Riot Games decided to nerf some of the most dominating champs of the moment, like Samira, Kayle, or Kayn.
These nerfs surprise no one. After the release of the new Item Shop and the appearance of the Mythic Items, the metagame is pretty broken, and some Champions have been standing out too much.
The buff list is much longer. Twenty Champions will become stronger with the upcoming update, which will try to take Pantheon out of the Support role, and make him a top laner again.
In the same line, Riot works to bring Rengar and Wukong back to the jungle and to stick Seraphine to the mid lane.
As announced, Anivia will receive big changes, while Yone and Yasuo will probably be back in the meta once again.
