LoL Patch 13.10 has introduced brand-new items, insane item updates and made major changes for support players in League of Legends. One of those changes was to the item Wardstone, which is a late game item for supports to be able to hold more control wards. But with the changes, a bug has made its way into the game. 

Multiple players have complained about the Wardstone bug in the LoL Patch 13.10 bugs megathread on Reddit, and now Riot is taking action by disabling the item until they've got a fix for this known issue. 

LoL Patch 13.11 Will Re-Enable Watchful Wardstone

League of Legends has multiple known bugs and while some take longer than others to get fixed, this new bug is so annoying that Riot has even gone and disabled the root of the problem – Wardstone. 

The item has been updated in Patch 13.10 with some new stats. The item is also not going to transform automatically anymore, with players having to purchase the upgraded version of the item. With this change, the item has received better and more stats. Now though, a bug has plagued the community. 

According to multiple players, purchasing Wardstone causes them to lose the 1100 Gold it costs, but instead of getting an item they get... nothing. Any control wards they had previously will also disappear. This bug was noted by multiple players and it sems Riot has finally found a fix. 

On June 2, 2023 the official League of Legends Dev Twitter has sent out a tweet stating that the bug has been fixed and that Watchful Wardstone is back in action on Summoner's Rift. 

This isn't the first big bug we've heard about. There have been multiple other bugs in recent times that have caused runes or items to be disabled. Earlier this season the Cookie Delivery rune had been disabled due to a bug, while Waterwalking and Ryze also had its fair share of issues.
