TFT Patch 11.11: Full notes and updates

From solved to undiscovered again, Set Five's second large patch will have a major impact on the meta.

Another large update in Teamfight Tactics will take place this week within Set Five Reckoning, shaking up the meta once again. 

Scheduled to hit the live servers on May 26, Patch 11.11 contains several TFT system changes that will aim to improve gameplay and reroll strategies for two and three-cost carriers. The update will also include a large number of nerfs and buffs to traits, champions, and items. Changes range from small tweaks to multiple lever adjustments, affecting the meta at all stages. 

From Darius nerfs and shop rate changes to reworked items, here are the full notes for TFT Patch 11.11.

Set Five Reckoning system changes

System changes in Reckoning include a rework to shop rates following adjustments that were made to the Chosen mechanic in Set Four Fates, along with UI improvements that will assist players in making better decisions on the fly. 

UI

With the launch of Patch 11.11, players can read a full description of completed items while competing without a third-party app. The first click on a component will show possible completed items, while a second click on a completed item will provide a full description of what it does. 

PC players will also notice a change to Zz’Rot Portal, with the TFT team alterting its color from green to purple. 

Shop rate percentages

To encourage reroll strategies for two and three-cost champions, the shop rate percentages were adjusted at levels six and seven. 

  • Level six: Adjusted from 35/35/25/5/0 to 25/40/30/5/0 percent.
  • Level seven: Adjusted from 19/35/30/15/1 to 19/30/35/15/1 percent.

Carousel changes

The appearance of Shadow items in the carousels has been adjusted, providing more opportunities to take a trip into the Black Mist. 

  • One Shadow item: Adjusted from 10 to 0 percent. 
  • Two Shadow items: Adjusted from 75 to 70 percent.
  • Three Shadow items: Increased from 10 to 25 percent.
  • Four Shadow items: No change, remaining at five percent.

Orb adjustments

Orbs are getting a buff in Patch 1.11, lowering the odds of getting gold in exchange for champions of equal value. Blue Orbs were also reworked. 

  • Blue Orb: Changed from Neeko and two gold (eight percent chance) to a Neeko plus one two-cost unit (six percent chance) or a Neeko and one three-cost champion (two percent chance.)
  • All Orbs: Lower chance of getting gold with an increase of receiving champions of equal value.
