League of Legends patch 13.9 is officially out. While not much has changed in LoL patch 13.9 compared to LoL Patch 13.8 and the MSI update, many changes are appearing in LoL Patch 13.9. From minor tweaks to champions to the addition of Neeko’s midscope update,

here is everything you need to know about the major changes in LoL patch 13.9 and how this patch primes League players for the upcoming LoL 13.10 Patch.

How is Neeko changing in LoL Patch 13.9?

The biggest change during LoL Patch 13.9 is the addition of Neeko’s midscope update to make her more viable and useful in the meta.

The plan from Riot Games’ end with these changes was to hopefully allow her to find a place in the competitive meta moving forward so that pros can intertwine her into compositions. Additionally, the mid-scope update provides updates to all of Neeko’s abilities, so Neeko mains will have to take some time to get used to all the adjustments coming to her kit.

What other champions received buffs on LoL Patch 13.9?

All the changes in LoL Patch 13.9.

Apart from Neeko, a few other champions received buffs in LoL Patch 13.9. The other winners of LoL Patch 13.9 were Aatrox, Amumu, Swain, Trundle, and Volibear. All five champions have received varying levels of buffs ahead of LoL Patch 13.10. From various changes to certain champions' passive abilities to receiving extra damage, all five champions will be hoping that the small changes start to increase their stake in the meta.

Who was nerfed in LoL Patch 13.9?

Only Jinx and Sion received nerfs in LoL Patch 13.9 as both champions have been prominent forces in the League of Legends competitive meta. Their adjustments should provide some much-needed adjustments to their place in the meta as mainstays.

Jinx’s Attack damage growth has been reduced from 3.4 to 3.15. Meanwhile, Sion has received a nerf to his passive health loss when he is dead. The amount of health he loses in this passive state has been increased to 2.3-24.4 from 2-19. While both changes are relatively small, they are nice adjustments to two prominent champions going forward into LoL Patch 13.10.
