League of Legends patch 10.13 brings some summer-ready skins for Taliyah, Jarvan IV, Heimerdinger, Orianna, and Syndra

Looks like we’re now over the halfway point into the 2020 League of Legends patch cycle, League fans. LoL patch 10.12 has hit the MOBA game’s live servers, bringing those fierce new High Noon skins and a batch of Champion and rune changes – and, like clockwork, patch 10.13 has now arrived on the PBE for two weeks of testing. Let’s take a look, shall we?

First up, as you might have guessed from the splash art above, those LoL Pool Party skins Riot was teasing earlier this week have landed on the testing servers! Early predictions on exactly whose feet those were reclining on the sane were more or less spot-on, too: along with Taliyah – who was confirmed to be getting a summer-ready new skin earlier this year – Heimerdinger, Jarvan IV, Orianna, and Syndra are the lucky Champs joining the Pool Party alternate universe skin line this year.

In addition, Nurse Akali, Kennen MD, and Surgeon Shen have also got some VFX updates this patch, which SkinSpotlights has handily put together in a compilation clip. You can check out all of the above in the patch notes below.

As is often the case on day one of a new patch hitting the PBE, there aren’t many Champion balance to get a good look at just yet, but lead gameplay designer Mark Yetter has posted a brief preview of some mid-lane testing the studio has plans to implement (though it now looks like this will be after the worlds patch), which you can find below alongside the handful of changes on the PBE.

So, keep checking back on these notes over the next couple of weeks as we’ll update them with everything you need to know, fresh and piping hot from the PBE.

Read on to check out the LoL path 10.13 notes below!
