Riot Games, developer of the ultra-popular "League of Legends" MOBA strategy game, announced what changes will be coming to the game when Patch 3.8 arrives. Check out some of the highlights of the coming changes below. You can also read the full Patch 3.8 Notes here.

Some changes are coming to Annie, though only to her ultimate, Tibbers. Tibbers will get a health increase at rank 2 from 1,600 to 2,100 and rank 3 from 2,000 to 3,000. Tibbers' magic resistance will also be upped from 25/45/65 to 30/50/75. The mana cost for Tibbers will also be reduced to 100 at all ranks from 125/175/225. Even with these changes though, Tibbers won't exactly be a rampaging minion for Annie to use, meaning that the main value of Annie's ult will continue to be the initial burst damage that comes with casting her ultimate.

Sona will be a slightly more durable, with her base health getting boosted from 410 to 450 and base armor increased from 9.3 to 11.3. Her Power Chord damage breakdown will now look like this: 13/20/27/35/43/52/62/72/82/92/102/112/122/132/147/162/177/192. To this point, the formula that determined Sona's Power Chord damage was this: 8 + 10 x Sona character level. This formula meant that the maximum damage that Sona's Power Chord could do was 168, meaning that with the new changes, her Power Chord will do additional damage at the highest levels. Bug fixes will be coming to Sona's Aria of Perseverence as well.

Junglers will also have to figure out new jungling patterns on Summoner's Rift as well. The initial spawn times for Wolves, Wraiths and Golems are being increased from 1:40 to 1:55. Respawn times for Wolves and Golems will be reduced from 60 seconds to 50 seconds. Ancient Golem (blue) and Lizard Elder (red) will also grant more experience per kill: 340 instead of 220. Young Lizard will give 10 experience instead of 40.

What do you think of the above changes coming to "League of Legends" in Patch 3.8? Which "League of Legends" changes please or upset you the most and why? Are you a jungler? If so, do you like or dislike the changes coming to the jungle in Summoner's Rift? Why or why not? Sound off in the comments below.
