A second large Teamfight Tactics Set Four update will take place today around 2pm CT, according to lead game designer Stephen “Mortdog” Mortimer 

Following a large PBE update to Set Four Fates yesterday, another will take place today that includes a number of nerfs and buffs. Another TFT update to the PBE won’t occur until after Labor Day weekend, likely on either Sept. 8 or 9.

Five-cost chosen champions will no longer drop at level eight, according to the new Fates PBE notes. And two of the XP leveling changes were reverted from yesterday’s update. Adjustments were also made to Gargoyle Stoneplate again, reducing its armor and MR from 15 to 12. And Sunfire Cape had its burn cooldown reduced from two to one second. 

Balance adjustments in today’s patch include nine trait changes and nerf and buffs to five champions. From reverted leveling XP changes to an Annie and Talon nerf, here are the Sept. 4 TFT Set Four Fates PBE updates and notes.
