The first sweeping balance pass for the new League of Legends runes is coming in Patch 7.24 with several Keystone Runes and other popular options receiving quite a few changes.

Since the new runes were added, some clear contenders rose above the other options as the most popular rune choices. As far as the Keystone Runes go, Press the Attack is one example of a Keystone Rune that became a clear frontrunner. Following up on the comment from Riot Games in the patch notes about “ensuring no one option in any given row is overpowering its neighbors,” the patch notes include changes to each one of the Precision tree’s Keystone Runes.

Below are all of the rune-specific changes that’ll ship with the next League of Legends patch:

Our goal is to reduce the gap between extreme cases, be it the best-in-class champions using it, or champions who would fall behind and weren't able to recover from it.”
    • [REMOVED] YOU'RE TOO FAR AWAY: No longer increases attack range by 25
    • [UPDATED] SO MANY ITEMS: Loot table mechanism updated to decrease variance in loot over time.
