Riot Games game design director Stephen “Mortdog” Mortimer and Riot Kent highlighted today every “big and small” Teamfight Tactics balance change that’s taking place in the upcoming 11.13 patch.

Scheduled to drop on live TFT servers June 23, the 11.13 patch contains a number of significant changes that might shift the meta. Revealed to be another large update during the Patch Rundown today, there are also a large number of small tweaks and system changes taking place as well.

Here’s every tentative nerf and buff scheduled to release in TFT Patch 11.13

System changes

The lack of Stage 4-2 Armory will no longer be big deal. Chances for seeing a Bonus Armory at 4-2 are getting increased within Patch 11.13. Several other changes are also taking place like a reduction of consumables and an increase of full items during a Stage 5-2 Bonus Armory. Providing the exact percentages at each possible Bonus Armory, Mortdog released a full breakdown of the old and new percentage rates taking place in patch 11.13.

Here’s every Bonus Armory change taking place in the 11.13 TFT patch.

  • Two full items and two special items have been replaced with four full items.
  • Two components and two special items were adjusted to two components and two full items.
  • Chances of seeing a Stage 5-2 Armory have been decreased.
