A new pack emerges on the horizon as the newest League of Legends champion Naafiri is set to go live alongside patch 13.14 - lets dive into the patch notes and see all the new changes coming our way.
According to Riot Games' official patch schedule, the League of Legends patch 13.14 is set to go live on July 19, 2023.
The patch will be rolled out across the day according to each main server's time zones - here are all the critical patch rollout times for all major LoL servers worldwide.
As with all new patch releases, several hours of server downtime will be spent while the patch is rolled out. Matchmaking and competitive queues will be disabled before the patch is made fully live and good to go.
LoL fans have plenty of changes to get to grips with in LoL patch 13.14, which is currently out on the Public Beta Environment (PBE). These changes include tons of champion buffs, nerfs, system changes, and even a brand new champion.
Naafiri is set to drop into Summoner's Rift in the upcoming League of Legends patch after being delayed from her initial Spring release. For players that don't already know, Naafiri is a Darkin assassin and a sentient dune hound. Naafiri's kit revolves around the pack Naafiri empowers, and it will be interesting to see how she shakes up the meta.
Open up your wallets for the newest skins to hit the Rift in the upcoming patch - six new skins to join the Soul Fighter skin line. These ferocious skins truly amp up the lethality of their characters and are definitely worth the RP. These new skins include a new ultimate skin and even a new mythic chroma!

This is just brief rundown of Naafiri's kit - check out our detailed overview on Naafiri's abilities and her lore.
Naafiri spawns Packmates that attacks targeted enemies. Killing enemies reduced this cooldown
Naafiri throws Darkin-tainted daggers, dealing physical damage and inflicting a bleed for several seconds. This ability can also be recast. Packmates will also leap to attack champions hit by this skill.
Naafiri dashes at an enemy with her Packmakes, singling out a target, revealing them for 1.5 seconds and slowing them.
Naafiri dashes forward through all enmies, exploding into a flurry of blades upon reaching her targeted location. Packmates recall next to Naafiri and are healed to full HP.
Naafiri prepares her grand hunt, which lasts 15 seconds. Naafiri spawns Packmates and empowers them, gaining decaying movement speed. She reveals nearby enemies, gains bonus attack damage, increases the maximum health of her Packmates, and reduces the cooldown of her passive.
Upon first champion hit, Naafiri gains a shield for 3 seconds. Upon first champion takedown, all effects of Call of the Pack are refreshed.
Jump into the arena and face a deathmatch like never before! LoL patch 13.14 will introduce a brand new game mode. Unlike ARAM, which still maintains a 5v5 structure, Arena will be a 2v2v2v2, pitting four pairs of two against one another in several deathmatch-style rounds.
Champions will reportedly progress in power, gaining items, levels, and special Augment powers between combat rounds, which can be used to empower their chosen champion further as the last duo emerges victorious. More details on the Arena mode will be added closer to its release, so stay tuned!
