As interesting as the changes are, it’s a little disappointing to see the next patch for League of Legends being called the ‘Mid-July’ patch rather than the Zyra patch, as it probably means that the mostly-naked plant lady with an interesting suite of skills is less likely to grace the client next week, when the patch hits.

But she’s got some interesting sounding abilities.
