When is LoL Patch 13.2?

According to Riot’s Patch schedule, Patch 13.2 should be going live on January 25th, 2023.

However, with the recent social engineering attacks on their systems, Riot has been unable to release content to its normal schedule. That means that the information below may not be fully locked in as of yet.

The patch will likely roll out throughout the day, starting with Australia at 10 AM AEDT.

These are the key timings for your servers:

3 PM PT (NA)5 AM GMT (EUW)3 AM CET (EUNE)8 AM KST (Korea)

There’s going to be a decent amount of downtime once the patch begins. All matchmade and competitive queues will be disabled across all League of Legends servers three hours before the patch hits.

We’ll be sure to update you here should the attacks lead to any unforeseen delays with the rollout of Patch 13.2

Annie Updates

Annie and Tibbers are both receiving some buffs.

Annie is one of Leagues of Legends’ oldest champions, and as such has struggled to keep up in the day of Irelia dashes and Yasuo wind walls.

Riot is looking to buff Annie up to keep her a bit more in line with other mid laners, as well as deliver some other quality-of-life buffs to the Dark Child.

Most of these buffs come in the form of her E: Molten Shield which is receiving a mini rework to allow it to proc on all damage instead of just auto attacks.

AD Carry Treatments

Attack Damage Carries have been kind of the butt of the joke in recent seasons of League of Legends. With low-health pools, they’re often the first ones to be blown up in the fight.

Riot is looking to make some drastic changes to the AD carry role, with a particular interest in their items. The most notable change is that Infinity Edge will now give its damage bonus at 40% critical strike rather than 60%. This means ADCs can purchase the item second and reap its rewards earlier in the game.

Riot is also looking at changing the mana pool for a bunch of ADCs, hoping to push them away from relying on Presence of Mind to sustain themselves in fights.

Jhin will be receiving changes, alongside other ADCs.
