Settle in for a lot of reading.
Oh boy, this is a big one. League of Legends Patch 13.10 is just over the horizon, and the Riot Games developers werent lying when they said they promised to use the 2023 Mid-Season Invitational lull to shake up the game.
That said, there are actually not too many champion changes coming in the May update, though that doesnt exactly make it light reading. Instead, Riot is shipping four new itemsthough technically one is a returning upgradeand making changes to nearly every other item on the Rift, according to balance boss Riot Phroxzon, who unveiled the new changes on May 9.
Neeko and several ADCs are the only champs actually being tweaked after Iverns midscope update was delayed slightly.
This patch is actually quite skinny in the skins department too with just three characters getting cosmetic variants, though those three lucky champions are set to be decked out in some awesome new Snow Moon skins.
Heres everything you need to know about League Patch 13.10.
The next update of 2023 will roll out on Wednesday, May 17, according to Riots patch schedule. As per usual, the patch will rollout worldwide across the day, starting in Australia at around 10am (AEDT). Heres the key patch rollout times for some of the major League servers:
There will be several hours of downtime once the patch begins. Matchmaking and competitive queues will be disabled across all League servers three hours before the update is officially deployed and set live.
Four new items, or rather three new items and the glorious return of one classic, are landing in the League store in this update. They are new Mythic item Echoes of Helia, two Epic support items called Lifewell Pendant and Chalice of Blessing, and Statikk Shiv.
These new items are mostly themed for the bot lane, with AD carries and supports likely licking their lips over the new toys.

While the long-awaited Ivern midscope update was originally slated to hit live servers this patch, the Riot devs have instead decided to keep him in the cooking pot for at least two more weeks.
Once he is ready to go, the Green Father will have his base range stats, his Q, W, E, and ultimate abilities, and his Friend of the Forest passive tweaked. In particular, the League update squad is trying to make Iverns Daisy ultimate more threatening and is stuffing a little more AI power into her coding.
This mid-May patch will see just three League characters get new skinsAhri, Morgana, and Varus. While its a smaller bundle this time around, the next 2023 cosmetics look incredible, with the trio all getting dark snow-themed glow-ups thanks to the debuting Snow Moon variant line.
Here are all the new skins coming this patch:
These Snow Moon skins will go live during the League Patch 13.10 cycle.
Here are all the early patch notes for the May 17 update. Remember, until Riot releases the official notes, any of these buffs, nerfs, and changes are still tentative and could be pulled for a later League update at any time.
