League of Legends has a new update this week, and we've got the 13.23 patch notes right here for you to peruse as you please. This patch is arriving the same week as the new TFT set Remix Rumble, so it's a big week for fans of Riot and their games.

This new patch has some pretty cool Bee-themed skins for various Champions, as well as some balance changes as usual. There are some system changes too, primarily the turret gold rewards. Keep reading for more info, or check out the patch notes schedule here!

New Bee skins are bee-ing introduced in this patch, including skins for Blitzcrank, Veigar and Vel'Koz. There's also a mythic shop rotation like usual.

Turret gold is being adjusted to make split pushing a more satisfying path towards power. Inner turrets have 125 gold shifted from global to local gold, putting more money into the pockets of anyone taking them down.

Of course, there's a large amount of Champion balance changes too, including a follow-up to Janna's kit update last patch.
