Riot has released a new patch in tandem with Legends of Runeterra's first expansion of 2023, Glory in Navori. Patch 4.3 will work to iron out any instabilities in the meta that have arisen after the release of the last update.

Patches have been hard to come by as of late as Riot has committed itself to releasing patches less frequently, as stated in their 2023 roadmap. This is so they can focus on other aspects of the game such as expansions and gameplay improvements.

Regardless, a new patch is here and we can't wait to see how the game shapes up after these interesting balance changes. Here are all the buffs and nerfs from patch 4.3.
