League of Legends is getting some updates in patch 12.14 and one of the biggest is going to be the healing changes that you have to deal with. But which champions is Riot also hitting with updates?
A few weeks ago Riot hinted at more healing changes coming to League of Legends and in LoL Patch 12.14, they will be implementing a whole lot of adjustments to healing. Not only that, but drakes are also being put under the microscope.
So let's check out the PBE 12.14 server to know what LoL Patch 12.14 has in store for us other than new Star Guardian skins. These are all the buffs and nerfs of the next League of Legends patch.
All Champion Changes in LoL Patch 12.14
Champion Buffs in Patch 12.14
First and foremost, we have to state that LeBlanc, who has suffered since the durability update in Patch 12.10, will be getting a buff. Though we do wonder why Syndra, who is also a burst mage and has also been pretty weak, isn't getting any attention from Riot. Maybe next patch...?

Champion Nerfs in LoL Patch 12.14
Sivir was just nerfed in a b-patch for Patch 12.13, but now she is going to be getting some more nerfs. The mid-scope update landed a little too well for her and this made her one of the most sought after bot lane picks thanks to her AoE DPS.

Champion Adjustments in LoL Patch 12.14
As already mentioned, healing changes are hitting the rift. This also includes self-healing for certain champions and Riot is making sure to adjust the champions to balance the meta after the huge durability update. So, which champions are getting updated in Patch 12.14?

Gangplank Changes in LoL Patch 12.14
Gangplank is one of the strongest high elo and pro play champions in the game. In lower elo's, he isn't as present due to his high skill ceiling, but his ability to burst down champions with his barrels, as well as utilizing his global ult, make him a threat on all levels of play.
That's why the balance team has decided that Gangplank would have some of his lane power shifted, as well as the crit from his barrels. These are the upcoming changes to Gangplank.
