Heading into the winter holidays, game designer Kent “Riot Kent” Wu and game design director Stephen “Mortdog” Mortimer revealed a total of 17 champions and four traits that are slated to receive “big” changes in Teamfight Tactics‘ upcoming patch during today’s 11.24 Patch Rundown

Following four weeks on TFT Patch 11.23, players are ready for changes. And the tweaks will come with the 11.24 update, which is scheduled to take place on Dec. 8. The 11.24 Patch Rundown revealed the Chemtech trait is getting a buff that has adjusted the trait’s attack speed and health generation, making the trait more playable, according to Mortdog. Katarina will also take a nerf, but not into oblivion, leaving Mortdog slightly worried that the nerf “isn’t enough.”

From one and two-cost Set Six champion nerfs to Clockwork buffs and Innovator nerfs, here’s every major balance change slated to take place within the TFT 11.24 update via the Patch Rundown. 

11.24 champion major nerfs and buffs

Nerfs and buffs to Set Six champions within the TFT 11.24 patch have a goal of slowing down combat pace during late-game stages while also shifting the meta balance away from one and two-cost carriers, according to Mortdog. Trundle’s attack speed slow will get a nerf, along with his spell attack damage steal at two and three-star. 

Shaco will get a huge buff. It will make the Syndicate trait more playable, while also giving the Assassin trait another viable carry since the power level of Katarina was nerfed via her spell damage. Vex is getting a couple of nerfs that make her just a little less of an overpowered frontline unit. 

Fiora was buffed via her attack damage and spell attack damage percent. Jhin is slated for both nerfs and buffs, along with Jayce, improving his ranged attack damage while nerfing his melee spell shield. 

 One-cost

11.24 major trait nerfs and buffs
