Set 4.5, Festival of Beasts, features 20 new champions and seven traits in total, along with new Little Legend variants, a new Fates II pass, and changes to the game’s ranked system.

Lanterns, a new mechanic that can drop items like item components, loaded dice, gold, and more throughout various points of the game, is also joining TFT.

Players can look forward to the new Dragonsoul, Fabled, Executioner, Slayer, Syphoner, Daredevil, and Blacksmith traits, but will also say goodbye to Dazzler, Dusk, Hunter, Moonlight, and Shade.

Here are the full notes for TFT Patch 11.2.

New Little Legend variants

  • The following Little Legends variants will be released this patch: Dumpling Sprite, Porcelain Bellswayer, Lunar Revel Choncc, Lunar Beast Choncc, Lunar Revel Furyhorn, Lunar Beast Furyhorn, Lunar Revel Shisha, Lunar Beast Shisha

Fates ranked stage II begins this patch

  • If you are very good at this game and currently placed in Master or above, you will be reset to Diamond 4
