LoL Season 14's whirlwind of balance changes continues with Patch 14.13. This update dives into core gameplay systems, revamping runes like Electrocute and Dark Harvest, and fine-tuning champion balance across roles.

The focus is on nerfing champions that use Fated Ashes items, while also sharpening the distinction between Electrocute's early burst and Dark Harvest's stacking power. AD carries will also continue to see adjustments to create a more balanced bot lane!

LoL 14.13 Early Patch Notes

Riot Phroxzon has revealed the early patch notes for Patch 14.13, which focuses on rune adjustments and champion balance changes.

Two popular Domination keystones, Electrocute and Dark Harvest, are getting reworked. Electrocute is set to become the go-to option for early burst damage champions, helping them snowball their lead, while Dark Harvest may receive a cooldown reduction to better support its "stacking fantasy" playstyle.

The Fated Ashes items themselves are deemed balanced by the dev team, but some champions like Brand and Karthus are overperforming with them. These champions will be nerfed in Patch 14.13.

Kalista and Varus have been dominating professional play. Patch 14.3 aims to make them less dominant while preserving their core build options. On-hit Varus might get buffed to compete better with the currently stronger lethality build.
