League patch 13.2 may cause the biggest bot lane meta shift in years

League of Legends’ thirteenth season is off and running, with players already diving into or completing their promos for nked and most pro leagues having kicked off their spring splits. Coming into the season on patch 13.1, Riot Games already threw a ton of switches to the meta, but 13.2 is on the horizon with arguably more game-altering changes. 

League patch 13.2 targets champion changes to Annie and Ahri along with more Lunar skin unlocks, but it’s the changes to both AD carries and their items that has bot laners excited. Under his newly appointed role to the League balance team, former shoutcaster David “Phreak” Turley has brought sweeping buffs to the marksman role. Twelve champions are all having their mana buffed either through ovell base mana, mana growth, or their mana regenetion: Ashe, Caitlyn, Ezreal, Jhin, Jinx, Kai’Sa, Lucian, Miss Fortune, Senna, Sivir, Twitch, and Xayah. Certainly an impactful change, especially for champions like Ezreal and Sivir who rely heavily on their abilities throughout the game for damage.
