A number of Set 5.5 trait and champion changes are slated to take place in the Teamfight Tactics 11.20 patch, game design director Stephen “Mortdog” Mortimer revealed in the 11.20 Patch Rundown

The Draconic trait is getting buffed for value within TFT Patch 11.20, scheduled to release on Oct. 6. Eggs are getting an increase in gold and a new turn five Draconic egg with a 20 percent chance will contain one Force of Nature, two item components, and three Heimerdingers. System changes will include buffs to Radiant Armory and Blessings, while overperforming one-cost champions are getting nerfed at three-star.  

From chasing Abomination and Draconic to Yasuo and Kled nerfs, here’s every TFT Patch 11.20 balance change revealed during the Patch Rundown. 

Big 11.20 changes

The Sentinel and Forgotten traits will receive nerfs to make room for alternative strategies, while Abomination and Draconic will get a buff. Yasuo will see a small nerf in attack speed from 0.9 to 0.85. And the TFT balance team will take a final shot at making the Skirmisher trait worth pursuing into the late game.

Small 11.20 changes

The Spellweaver and Hellion traits are scheduled to get nerfed in TFT Patch 11.20, along with a number of one-cost three-star champions.

Radiant Quicksilver will also receive a buff that increases its attack speed from 40 to 45 percent.
