The League of Legends balance cycle is slowing down as Riot Games prepares for season 14. But that doesn’t mean the upcoming League Patch 13.22 will be devoid of buffs, nerfs, and changes. Riot has confirmed that there will be three buffs, seven nerfs, and three adjustments for characters that have been closely monitored throughout season 13. [source]
No item or rune changes are planned for this update, unless there are last-minute shifts in the meta. However, fans can look forward to the release of the HEARTSTEEL skins, inspired by the boy band that debuted with their hit single “PARANOIA.” There will be six new cosmetics for various champions.
