Riot has released a huge game update for Legends of Runeterra. Patch 3.19 is absolutely massive as it implements several card balance changes that were sorely missed in the previous updates. The last time we saw changes of this size was in patch 3.16 when certain cards were buffed and nerfed to oblivion.

It's been two months since and a lot has changed. The recently released Darkin Saga: Domination expansion introduced champions such as Seraphine, Varus, and Vayne as well as two new card mechanics. With these additions, the meta has been dramatically affected of course - unbalanced. Thankfully, patch 3.19 has arrived in the nick of time to restore balance to the game.
