League of Legends patch 12.13 will be looking to bring a fair amount of changes when the official update makes its way to the game in a couple of weeks.
The patch will not be as big in terms of changes to champions. However, it is expected to bring in the new ADC Nilah, as well as the highly-anticipated Star Guardian event.
As the MOBA is set to receive a 12.12b micro-patch in a couple of days, the 12.13 official update will be postponed by a week and will be scheduled for July 12, 2022.
Some of the biggest highlights of the patch will be the buffs that Master Yi will be receiving on his auto-attack range, as well as on his healing. Gwen will go through a significant number of adjustments, and changes will make their way to every part of her kit.
Volibrear and Corki are also in for some nerfs. Divine Sunderer is set to receive adjustments as well after receiving multiple changes in 12.12.
