Are you sick and tired of seeing Diana and Xin Zhao constantly being played in pro play and in your solo queue matches? Well, worry not, Riot has heard our prayers and are finally doing something with a few nerfs. Who else has joined them for LoL Patch 11.16 though?
Seven champions are being nerfed in LoL Patch 11.16. These champions are deserving of their nerfs and have completely taken over the meta in recent weeks. Hopefully, once LoL Patch 11.16 goes live on August 11th, we get more variance in our solo queue games.
Supports Getting Nerfed in LoL Patch 11.16
Lulu is getting a significant nerf in the upcoming patch. Her W, which has made her such a key pick will have an elongated cooldown and her ultimate, which can decide teamfights will also get a longer cooldown.

Junglers Getting Nerfed in LoL Patch 11.16
Xin Zhao has been a menace in the jungle over the last few patches. His reach and damage are insane. Due to his high damage output, he will have a base damage decrease in the upcoming Lol Patch.

Diana has also been tearing it up in the jungle, especially in high elo and pro play, hence why Riot has decided that she needs a nerf. Her passive has been targeted to deal less damage against jungle monsters.
Lee Sin, whom we’ve seen a lot of in solo lanes as well will also be getting a nerf to his W omnivamp. This blind monk won’t be able to heal as much with the ability in the coming patch.
Top Laners Getting Nerfed in LoL Patch 11.16
Two top laners have made it onto the nerf list. Tahm Kench who has been completely broken since his rework will be healing less thanks to the changes in his Q and he will also deal less damage with his passive.

Fiora is another champion who has been a solid pick in the top lane with high win rates. She will have a longer cooldown on her E in the later stages of the game, making her a little less reliable in the late game, but it won’t have too much of an effect on her.
ADC’s Getting Nerfed in LoL Patch 11.16
One ADC is on the nerf list and that is Ziggs. The Yordle has been tearing up solo queue, basically picking him meant it was a sure win for your team. Therefore, Ziggs will have the mana changes from Patch 11.14 reverted. But that’s not all! His E damage has been decreased and the slow went from 30% to 10% in the early stages of the game, making him a less reliable pick in the early game.
Item Nerfs in LoL Patch 11.16
One item will be nerfed in LoL Patch 11.16. The starting item Dark Seal will be giving 4 AP per stack in the coming Patch instead of the previous 5. Will this have a huge impact on the meta? No, but it will make the laning phase a little tougher for some champions.
These are all the nerfs we know of so far coming to Summoner's Rift. We will continue to update you when we find out something new about the patch so you're ready to dominate from the get-go once LoL Patch 11.16 goes live.
