League of Legends Patch 13.8 has now had the early patch notes revealed by Riot Games. Patch 13.7 feels like it has only just come out, but Riot has revealed the next batch of changes before MSI 2023.

So, with a focus on balancing and getting the game in order before the esports event kicks off, there's more of a focus on champions. Champions favoured by professional players such as Nidalee, Lillia, and Poppy will all be balanced in this update.

Some changes are also coming to junglers to make them more meta before the event. Besides the new balancing changes, there are also some new cosmetics with the Dawnbreaker and Inkshadow skin lines. So, let's look at what players should expect to see in patch 13.8 of League of Legends.

League of Legends Patch 13.8 Release Date

Wednesday, April 19 2023 is the date to look out for patch 13.8 in League of Legends.

This is sticking to the usual patch cadence for the regular updates in the hugely popular game.

Since the recent cyber-attack on Riot Games, there have been no more delays to the usual patch schedule.

Release times for major regions look like this...

  • 3 am PT (NA)
  • 5 am GMT (EU West)
  • 3 am CET (EU North East)
  • 8 am KR (Korea)

Additionally, servers will go down for three hours before this update goes live. So keep that in mind if you're on for some early League games.
