Riot Games game design director Stephen “Mortdog” Mortimer and Riot Kent revealed several upcoming Teamfight Tactics balance changes during the 11.16 Patch Rundown, highlighting a rework to the Legionnaire trait and multiple Radiant item adjustments. 

Scheduled to launch on Aug. 11, TFT Patch 11.16 seeks to create a harmonious balance between Radiant items while adjusting multiple champions and traits. The Legionnaire trait, absent from the TFT meta since the launch of Set Five, will receive a rework to give units Omnivamp while keeping the attack speed unchanged. Nocturne will also see a rework, along with every shot from Lucian counting as an attack—allowing items like Runaan’s Hurricane and Guinsoo’s Rageblade to work appropriately on the Sentinel champion. 

Here’s every TFT champion, trait, and item balance change scheduled to take place in Set 5.5 Patch 11.16, according to the Patch Rundown.
