The jungle meta has gotten pretty fixed over the last several months, and while the updated tanks and tank items seemed to help that a little bit, the game is still largely dominated by a few standout picks. But, Patch 7.10 makes a few changes to those at the top of the jungle as well as making some tweaks to bring up champions that haven’t been seen in a while.
The other meaningful jungle change with this patch are a few tweaks to the Rift Herald. After her update in the Mid-Season patch, the Rift Herald seems to be worth taking now. With the increase in attention, Riot is giving her a few quality of life changes to make sure everyone in the game is aware that she is about to dive head first into a turret.
