Three Champions Sejuani, Maokai, and Zac are getting their reworks. They are more useful and powerful in the battlefield as well as amazing in terms of supporting other allies. Zac's skills are changed into something new and are more versatile in terms of combat and support. After all, Zac can be bother tanky and a little bit of support.
Furthermore, Sejuani is more tactical in terms of halting enemy movement and a change in passive makes it even more amazing. Her AoE skills are perfect for breaking down enemy's defenses with her gap-closer tackle skill. Lastly, Maokai is deemed the Champion that changed his Ultimate skill, which covers a gigantic area, which roots enemies that get hit with it. Moreover, his little sapling changes when it is thrown on the grass/brush for additional damage. The video of these three Champions can be viewed below:
