League of Legends patch notes - 13.8 update overhauls report system

With MSI around the corner, Riot Games has released a new set of League of Legends patch notes, as the LoL 13.8 update is almost here for the MOBA game ahead of its imminent release. There are changes to champions as you’d expect but reporting has also been improved, alongside how easy it is to view challenges.

When is the new patch dropping then? You can expect League of Legends 13.8 to hit your game on May 2.

One of the biggest changes in the League of Legends 13.8 patch comes to reporting and behavioural systems, as Riot is making it much easier to report players for inappropriate language or behaviour in past matches.

“Reporting is now available in Match History,” Riot says. “You can report another player by right-clicking on their row when viewing past game summaries in your Match History.”

LoL 13.8 also includes a visual update to the challenges page, with every challenge under either Capstone or Groups in an effort to make navigation less confusing. Check out the League of Legends 13.8 patch highlights in the image below, courtesy of Riot Games, with a more detailed breakdown of each and every change underneath that.

League of Legends patch notes – 13.8 update

Below are all the champion and item changes, alongside the upcoming skins and chromas in LoL.

Champion Adjustments

Aurelion Sol

Base Stats

  • Health Growth: 95 ⇒ 90
  • Armor Growth: 4.3 ⇒ 4


Base AD increased.
The current bot lane in pro play likely has a hyper carry on both sides of the Rift and hasn’t allowed for many non-hyper carries to compete. We want to give Ezreal a little more “OOMPH” in order to shake up the current bot lane situation, but also to make him better at playing into scaling marksmen at all levels of play.

Base Stats

  • Base Attack Damage: 60 ⇒ 62


Base AD increased, base armor increased.
Garen hasn’t been living his best spin-to-win life recently, meaning he hasn’t been able to win early trades against other melee champions which is supposed to be one of his strong points. We’re buffing up his base damage and early durability to
help him find his groove again.

Base Stats

  • Base Attack Damage: 66 ⇒ 69
  • Base Armor: 36 ⇒ 38


W damage increased. E shield decay timer increased.
In this patch we’re giving Janna some ability to get a little more aggressive in lane and provide additional damage with her items. Also making shielding early a lot less punishing for players who want to preempt their teammates to go in for trades with E.
