The latest patch for League of Legends, version 13.11, brings a host of changes to champions and items alike. This article breaks down the significant updates that will significantly affect gameplay.
Rell receives several substantial tweaks in this patch with adjustments to her base stats and abilities. Her passive, Q, W, and E abilities have been altered which likely changes her playstyle drastically.
Akali's Q base damage has been increased, providing more burst potential in skirmishes or teamfights.
Amumu sees his W damage reduced in this patch - a change that affects his overall DPS and jungle clear speed negatively.
Aphelios' passive bonus AD has been decreased making him less potent in trades or all-ins at every stage of the game.
Changes to Aurelion Sol include an increase in E mana cost and a decrease in magic damage AP ratio which may hinder his roaming ability considerably.
Items have not escaped the developers' attention either as several key items see adjustments too:
This item’s bonus attack speed has been decreased thereby reducing its effectiveness on attack-speed based champions like ADCs or certain bruisers/junglers.
Duskblade sees its Nightstalker bonus ability damage increased potentially buffing assassins who rely heavily on their abilities for burst damage.
One notable new feature introduced is 'buff wisps' allowing junglers to share buffs with allies - a strategic element that could change how games are played significantly at higher levels of play particularly competitive esports scenarios where coordinated teams can leverage shared buffs optimally.
ARAM players aren't left out as Riot introduces various buffs and nerfs specific to champions within ARAM mode. Additionally, details about the upcoming Clash tournament - Bandle City Cup were announced potentially exciting those who enjoy competitive LoL gameplay outside Ranked Solo/Duo queue.
As with any patch notes update from Riot Games, numerous bug fixes targeting both general gameplay issues as well as specific skin-related bugs have also been implemented ensuring smoother gameplay experiences across the board.
Last but certainly not least are new skins: DRX Aatrox, Akali, Ashe, Caitlyn, Kindred and Maokai get new looks along with corresponding chromas including an exclusive Prestige skin for DRX Aatrox fans!
In conclusion; whether you're an avid fan following up on your favourite champion's balance changes or just someone keeping tabs on what's happening generally within LoL's ever-evolving meta-game landscape - there's something for everyone within these recently released 13.11 Patch Notes.
