Janna's previous changes (since visual update):
Howling Gale:
= Now knocks the target further into the air the longer it is channeled (now 80 + 10 per second channeled, from a constant 100).
Zephyr:
- Ability Power ratio reduced to 0.6 from 0.8.
- Passive movement speed reduced at earlier ranks to 4/7/10/13/16% from 8/10/12/14/16%.
- Slow duration reduced to 3 seconds from 4.
Eye of the Storm:
- Attack damage bonus is now lost if the shield breaks.
Monsoon:
- Cooldown increased at earlier ranks to 150/135/120 from 120 seconds at all ranks.
+ Mana cost reduced to 150/225/300 from 200/275/350.
- Knock back distance reduced to 875 from 1000.

Also current PBE changes:
Monsoon:

They are buffing her, and to do so they will probably undo one of her previous nerfs.

I hope they buff the right things, I really like Janna support, but I just can't use her anymore because she has such a weak laning phase with all the nerfs they did.

Janna was the best support for a hot minute at one point.

She's still just as good at all the things she was ever good at but I'll take buffs.
