League of Legends Season 13 is in full swing, and the developers at Riot Games are making significant changes to the game's meta through a variety of buffs, nerfs, and adjustments. As the top and bottom performing champions are becoming more clear, the next update, Patch 13.2, is set to bring even more changes to the game. Annie and Ahri are among the champions receiving adjustments, as well as 23 items being reviewed. Additionally, players can expect new Lunar-themed skins and cosmetics in the upcoming patch cycle.

Patch 13.2 release date

The first update of the year for League of Legends is scheduled for release on Wednesday, January 25th. The patch will be deployed worldwide throughout the day, beginning in Australia at 10am AEDT. The following are the key rollout times for major League servers:

        • 3am PT (North America)
        • 5am GMT (Europe West)
        • 3am CET (Europe North East)
        • 8am KR (Korea)

Please note that there will be a period of downtime during the update. Matchmaking and competitive queues will be unavailable for all League servers three hours before the patch is officially deployed.

Patch 13.2: What's New in League of Legends

Annie, a champion who has not received any updates to her abilities in almost a year (the last time was in Patch 12.12), is receiving significant changes in Patch 13.2. Despite being a popular pick in the past, Annie has become a "niche pick" in Season 13 and Riot Games is looking to increase her play and win rate. To achieve this, the developers are increasing the power of her passive ability Pyromania, her W ability Incinerate, her E ability Molten Shield, and her ultimate ability Tibbers.

Boosting Mana and Abilities for a Dozen AD Carry Champions

In the upcoming Patch 13.2, there will be significant changes to the bot lane, specifically for AD carry players. A dozen marksmen champions are set to receive changes to their abilities and mana. The changes were announced by LCS commentator and Riot developer David "Phreak" Turley on January 14th, and will affect champions such as Ashe, Caitlyn, Ezreal, Jhin, Jinx, Kai’Sa, Lucian, Miss Fortune, Senna, Sivir, Twitch, and Xayah. These changes will focus on increasing mana pools, growth, regen and more.

New Lunar-Themed Skins to be Released in Patch 13.2

The celebrations for the Lunar New Year continue in this patch with an additional six themed cosmetic items for Ashe, Kha’Zix, Malphite, Qiyana, Thresh, and Lissandra. The latter is receiving a beautiful new Prestige skin. Below is a list of all the new skins that will be available in Patch 13.2:

        • Lunar Empress Ashe (1,350 RP)
        • Lunar Guardian Kha’Zix (1,350 RP)
        • Lunar Guardian Malphite (1,350 RP)

        • Lunar Emperor Thresh (1,350 RP)

All of these skins will be released simultaneously with the League 13.2 update.
