  • SharePoint 2013 supports both 2010 legacy type workflows that run in the OWS timer service on the SharePoint server and 2013 workflows that run on a server running Workflow Manager.  You can still create the same kind of workflows you created in SharePoint 2010 without Workflow Manager.  That would include 2010 List Workflows.  You only need Workflow Manager if you want to create the newer kind of workflows that use Workflow Manager.  All the built-in workflows still use the 2010 legacy workflow system.  Both types of workflows can be created using SharePoint Designer 2013.
