LoL 13.1b Patch Notes: Riot Releases Hotfix Patch Instead of Normal Patch
Riot is going to be releasing a b-patch instead of the normal LoL Patch 13.1b after they revealed why their PBE build had been broken for the past week. So, some changes had to be moved to the next full patch, which will be 13.1, but a lot of adjustments will already hit live servers in this hotfix patch.
Let's go over all the champion and item adjustments Riot has planned for LoL Pathc 13.1b.
This is not a regular patch and while LoL Patch 13.2 was supposed to release on January 25, 2023, this one is going to be replacing that patch and will be released a day later on January 26, 2023. So the upcoming changes we will list below are going to go live a day after patches normally drop.
Chemtech Drake Adjustments
The chemtech drake has felt a bit weak, which is why Riot is giving her some love and buffing her just a bit so she can stand proudly alongside her brethren on Summoner's Rift.
Grievous Wounds Changes According to LoL 13.1b Patch Notes
Grievous Wounds (GW) hasn't felt good. There has been a lot of discourse around healing and sustain in League of Legends, which is always tricky. Make GW too strong and champions like Soraka become obsolete, but make it too weak and champions just don't die... so Riot is trying to make some adjustments, trying to please everyone.
Maximum Health Burn: 1.8% for melee champions/0.8% for ranged champions ⇒ 1.6% for melee champions/1.0% for ranged champions
Attack Damage: 45 ⇒ 55
Total Gold Cost: 2800 ⇒ 2900
Riot Adjusting Marksmen and Marksmen Items in LoL Patch 13.1b
ADC's should be the carries of a team, but in recent times they sure haven't felt like it. Marksmen feel unrewarding to play and lack mana to truly get rolling in the early stages of the game. Therefore, Riot is making some huge changes to improve all of you bot laners life a little.
