League of Legends patch 10.13 notes – Pool Party skins, Aphelios, Kalista nerfs; Nocturne, Lucian buffs

League of Legends patch brings some summer-ready skins for Taliyah, Jarvan IV, Heimerdinger, Orianna, and Syndra

Looks like we’re now over the halfway point into the 2020 League of Legends patch cycle, League fans. LoL patch 10.12 has hit the MOBA game’s live servers, bringing those fierce new High Noon skins and a batch of Champion and rune changes – and, like clockwork, patch 10.13 has now arrived on the PBE for two weeks of testing. Let’s take a look, shall we?

First up, as you might have guessed from the splash art above, those LoL Pool Party skins Riot was teasing earlier this week have landed on the testing servers! Early predictions on exactly whose feet those were reclining on the sane were more or less spot-on, too: along with Taliyah – who was confirmed to be getting a summer-ready new skin earlier this year – Heimerdinger, Jarvan IV, Orianna, and Syndra are the lucky Champs joining the Pool Party alternate universe skin line this year.

In addition, some of the characters in the Crime City skin line have been renamed, and Nurse Akali, Kennen MD, and Surgeon Shen have also got some VFX updates this patch, which SkinSpotlights has handily put together in a compilation clip. You can check out all of the above in the patch notes below.

As for Champion balance changes, a bunch have now landed on the PBE, including some nerfs for Aphelios and Kalista, buffs for Lucian, Nocturne, Kog’Maw, and Nunu & Wilump, as well as changes for Yuumi and Gnar. Plus, lead gameplay designer Mark Yetter has posted a changelist for the coming update, giving us an idea of what’s in store when the launch date rolls round, also included below.

In addition to all of the above, Riot’s now announced it’ll be rolling out the tests for two upcoming features – reporting and muting during Champ select – “around the time” LoL patch 10.13 launches. The experiment is to try out features that will help address game ruining behaviour, and will last for two patches. You can check out all the details on the LoL Champ select report and mute test here.

Keep checking back on these notes over the next couple of weeks as we’ll update them with everything you need to know, fresh and piping hot from the PBE.

Read on to check out the LoL patch 10.13 notes below!
