Mages are getting some notable buffs in League of Legends patch 11.13 as three of their main Mythic items: Luden’s Tempest, Liandry’s Anguish, and Everfrost are confirmed to receive buffs.

The 2021 preseason was all about the new Mythic and Legendary items. Tank champions dominated the early preseason with the new tank Mythics, while currently, bruisers are pretty much dominating the game with AD Mythics.

Even though there are currently six mythic items for the AP champion, Mage champions are by far having their worst time in League of Legends. And most of them are getting overshadowed by the assassins in the mid-lane. As most of the mages heavily rely on mana in the early game, their item choices instantly narrowed down to three items: Luden’s Tempest, Liandry’s Anguish, and Everfrost.

However, those items core – Lost Chapter cost 1300 gold that pretty much delays the power spike of most of the mage champions. And to complete the main items it takes 3400 gold which is higher than most of the Mythic items.

Now, League of Legends’ Gameplay Design Director Mark “Scruffy” Yetter has previewed the upcoming patch 11.13. And it seems they are buffing Luden’s Tempest, Liandry’s Anguish, and Everfrost which should buff the Mage class.

“We’ve seen the class take a lot of hits this year in terms of satisfaction and power level, so we reduced AP Mana Mythics’ costs by 200 gold,” League of Legends’ Lead Game Designer Riot Jag on this Mage buff. “We know this doesn’t solve all player pains, and we’ll keep a close eye on them going forward.”

Luden’s Tempest Buff

  • Cost: 3400g >> 3200g

Liandry’s Anguish Buff

  • Cost: 3400g >> 3200g

Everfrost Buff

  • Cost: 3400g >> 3200g
