League Of Legends Gameplay Design Director Mark Yetter took his official Twitter account to share a new post and revealed the upcoming changes for the 11.13 patch notes for the League Of Legends.

The new patch features two brand new items for split-pushing champions, Anathema’s Chains and Hullbraker, the balancing changes on champions, as well as the new item changes, especially for the mid-lane.

Mid lane is one of the most balanced lanes in the League Of Legends meta right now compared to the other roles. However, the mage items are pretty underperforming since the beginning of season 11.

Especially in solo queue, attack damage champions are more powerful because of the items. In the professional scene, the control mages are used just because of their late-game team-fighting abilities.

However, it has been so overwhelming to play mages that the most popular picks such as Orianna and Syndra picked a total of 6 times in the first week of LEC. In the Korean league, Orianna also picked 3 times in total, and there were no control mages in the mid lane besides Twisted Fate who picked 3 times as well.

Therefore, Riot Games decided to reduce all the mythic item prices for the control mages to 3200, Liandry’s Anguish, Luden’s Tempest, and Everforst. Besides that, they nerfed the most used AD assassin mythic item, Prowler’s Claw, by cutting down the damage and the mobility.

With these changes, we could see the rise of the mages in the mid lane as the assains would most likely prefer such items as Eclipse or Duskblade of Draktharr, and it would be much easier to reach power spikes with mythic items that could be taken with 200 reduced gold.
