LoL Patch 7.13 Balance Changes

That out of the way, let’s start with the really important bit, shall we? What you need to remember is that stuff on the PBE like this is neither guaranteed to happen, nor to be in the next patch even if it does. This is what the folks over at Riot are thinking about doing. We’ve got the numbers on what’s changing, and a general guideline on which way each champion, item, mastery, summoner spell or rune is moving.

  • For the second time, Singed had a minor rework added to the PBE and then taken down shortly afterwards. Fantastically named developer ManWolfAxeBoss commented on Reddit that he still wasn't a fan of this iteration (which was mildly different from last patch) and they'd continue to work on them. Expect something next patch. To be clear no changes to Singed in this patch.

Patch 7.13 Audio Updates

  • Alistar and Cho'gath had audio passes for all their attack and ability audio for any skins that don't have custom audio. Probably safe to expect more of this.

LoL Patch 7.13 New Skins

Second most important: cosmetics. Lovely, gorgeous cosmetics. Bit more of a visual medium this, so we’ve grabbed the best videos of each skin, as well as a lovely pic or two. Some are relatively simple changes, while others are total reworks of every part of the champion outside the gameplay numbers - new VO, new animations, new particles and the rest. It’s generally defined by how much they cost, so we’ve detailed that as well.

SKT Ekko, Jhin, Nami, Olaf, Syndra and Zac


This patch has SKT1's World Championship winning skins as a big ol' pack. Each costs 1350 RP and is based on a different member of the team, with six in all. Details from Riot. See their videos below.

It'll be 640 RP.

They're going to receive an update in the near future to add more effects to match their RP cost.

LoL Patch 7.13 Login Screen

Each patch has its own login screen with unique music. They're always fairly excellent, and 7.13's is no exception. It's based around the new Honor system, which will go live globally in 7.13.

LoL Patch 7.13 Honor System

The Honor system is going live globally during 7.13, after some extended testing in the OCE region. You can read more about it on Riot's dedicated page.

LoL Patch 7.13 Context

Meddler popped up on the forums to give his usual breakdown of everything going on with the PBE. He explains the Trundle and Shaco changes, as well as other tidbits. His second post talks about the Kindred and Gnar changes. On June 20, he also explained Rift Herald changes, as well as what's coming up next.

Word on the Singed changes was mentioned on June 23 - they're trying to make building damage a better option, but may not end up shipping any changes at all. Cho and Lethality items are also on the block for 7.14, which should be hitting PBE in the next couple of days. 

That's League of Legends patch 7.13. We'll update as and when we get more info, or we'll see you for patch 7.14 in the very near future. Let us know below if there's any vital info we missed!

What about the Honor System?

I believe it's rolling out across a few regions at the moment and will be live for everyone by the end of 7.13 (so around 3 weeks from now).

15% AP Buff on Galio's Q may sound decent, but it really is a hard nerf. Generally you max Q, so there's a 35dmg nerf straight up at 5 points. To gain that back off the increased AP scaling, you'd need 230AP. Since Galio's a tank, you won't be getting that in the game (unless enemy has 3 AP champs). The ults dmg really means little, it's a CC move first. This change is going to hard drop his win-rate, ruining his laning phase.

I think Rek'sai will need more buffs then just the ultimate.If they just buff the ultimate it will be a bad repilca of Warwick before the rework.
