Riot has been talking about making some major changes to Kayle and it seems like LoL Patch 13.9 could finally see those updates go live.

Kayle is the type of champion that is comprarable to a canon minion until she hits the late game. She is the champion that most people hate to have on their solo queue team, since she only really gets going very late into the match and if we're honest 90% of games FF before she can reach her true potential.

That's why Riot have been trying to give her some attention to see whether they can somehow improve this champion by updating her kit a bit so she can also be a champion in the earlier stages of the game.

LoL Patch 13.9: Kayle's Update Could Go Live Very Soon

Kayle is going to be getting a huge adjustment. This doesn't look to be on the same level as Neeko's Mid-Scope Update which is also going to be released with LoL Patch 13.9 as well. Instead, Riot is going to be making a few adjustments on her current kit to make her ultimate a little better, as well as some other ability adjustments.

Lead champion designer, Riot August, revealed the changes they've got planned for Kayle that can currently be tested on the Public Beta Environment (PBE). The biggest changes to her ultimate include a shorter cast time and bigger AoE radius. When casting the ult on herself, Kayle also won't have lowered range anymore either, something which is going to improve her gameplay by a lot.

We need some more late game champions to pair with Kayle! Here are the best bot laners:

Of course, these changes will come at a price. The ultimate will deal slightly less damage. The invulnerability the ult grants will also be shorter than previously. Previously it was 2-3 seconds depending on who it was on, with these changes it'll be changed to a flat 2.5 seconds.

While her ultimate changes are the biggest update to her kit, Riot is also adjusting her E. While the AP ratio is lowered, meaning she will do less damage to champions, Riot is going to give her added damage against minions once she hits level 11.

Will these changes and updates be able to make Kayle a decent champion or is she doomed to stay useless? Hopefully we get to see some more Kayle games once these updates go live, because, to be honest, she is kind of cool.
