League of Legends 13.14 Patch Notes
Riot Games has listened to the community and decided to make substantial changes in the upcoming League of Legends 13.14 patch. Players can expect adjustments to top lane champions, bot laners, and quality of life (QoL) improvements for Zyra and Xerath. Notably, Riot will be nerfing Trinity Force, a powerful item that has dominated the game for some time.
Riot’s balance team will also focus on assessing the power spikes of ADCs, as they seem to be overly strong with just one item. The top lane will also receive attention, with K’Sante undergoing changes tailored for professional play. Moreover, items and runes will be adjusted to address issues with their balance since the mid-season update.
