League of Legends: Five biggest changes in update 13.4


LEAGUE of Legends is receiving a big new update and that means big changes are coming to the game.

28 champions will receive buffs or nerfs, changing up the best characters.

Buffs and nerfs are being given to numerous characters.

There are also changes to income, speed, and LP that are sure to change how you play.

Here are the five biggest changes coming in League of Legends 13.4 update.

LoL 13.4: Champions buffed

Ten champions have received big buffs in this update, hoping to encourage more people to play.

Here is the full list.

  • Ahri
  • Alistar
  • Aphelios
  • Cho’Gath
  • Malphite
  • Orianna
  • Riven
  • Senna
  • Veigar
  • Viego

Some characters like Ahri and Alistar were previously nerfed and now returning to their more powerful form.

Other characters like Malphite are receiving buffs that they have needed for a long time.

LoL 13.4: Champions nerfed

Unfortunately, all these buffs mean there has to be some balance, and these nine champs will take the fall.

Here’s the full list.

  • Amumu
  • Anivia
  • Azir
  • Elise
  • Jarvan IV
  • Jax
  • Maokai
  • Samira
  • Udyr

All of these characters are currently dominating the game, so these nerfs hope to even the playing field.

LoL 13.4: Kill experience tweaked

Some players have been experiencing a snowball effect, where when a team starts winning, it quickly snowballs and there is no way to overcome them.

The experience curve has been flattened significantly in the hopes of preventing this.

From levels 4-8 you will gain about 40% less experience than you might have previously.

After this it still has a steep curve but this hopes to keep the mid-game competitive.

LoL 13.4: Support item adjustments

A large number of items have been tweaked to make them more or less potent.

Here is the full list.


  • Relic Shield
  • Targon’s Buckler
  • Steel Shoulderguards
  • Runesteel Spaulders


  • Spectral Strike
  • Harrowing Crescent
  • Spellthief’s Edge
  • Frostfang
  • Shard of True Ice

LoL 13.4: New chat commands

Riot has been trying hard to moderate in-game chat, as it has been misused by some players.

The update will allow players to mute or deafen certain players from chat if they are acting in a way you find inappropriate. 

The new command /muteself will stop others from seeing what you type, while /deafen will hide the chat from you.
