The official League of Legends 13.20 patch notes will be released on October 10.

As the 2023 World Championship kicks into high gear, League of Legends 13.20 Patch steps onto the stage, poised to reshape the Summoner’s Rift and set the stage for Season 14. This comprehensive LoL 13.20 Patch ushers in a plethora of changes, including balance adjustments for eleven champions, a major rework for K’Sante, alterations to four items and eleven runes, and tweaks to key systems like death timers, dragon souls, and turret gold rewards.

League of Legends 13.20 Patch Notes

The primary objective of this League of Legends 13.20 Patch, according to League’s balance boss Matt Leung-Harrison, is to “tone back snowballing.” Riot Games aims to curtail the impact of early leads, addressing various elements such as jungle power, dragon and baron bonuses, experience gains, and more. This marks a significant step in preparing for the 2024 preseason, with further changes expected in upcoming patches.

This League 13.20 patch features balancing improvements for eleven champions. Galio, Jinx, Milio, Morgana, and Ziggs receive buffs, while Akshan, Bel’Veth, Kai’Sa, Quinn, and Zed receive nerfs. Less than a year after his debut, K’Sante received a significant redesign.

With regards to the reworks in the League of Legends 13.20 patch, less than a year after his introduction, K’Sante undergoes a substantial rework touching on aspects like health, armor growth, and abilities. Riot’s intent is to find the right balance for this new bruiser champion. Only his E ability remains untouched, signifying Riot’s dedication to refining K’Sante’s performance in ranked play.

With this 13.20 patch, Riot is not only focused on the competitive aspects of the game; it also gives consideration to cosmetics, particularly with Halloween right around the corner. Six League champions are scheduled to earn Coven 2023 skins in this update.
