A number of big and small balance changes are slated to take place in the Teamfight Tactics Patch 11.16, along with several significant reworks.

Scheduled to be released on Aug. 11, TFT Patch 11.16 is the first official update since Set 5.5 was released. Big changes include a rework to the Legionnaire trait, along with Nocturne and Lucian. A large number of Radiant items were also buffed or nerfed with the goal of toning down overpowered items while buffing the underperformers. Similar adjustments were applied to Set 5.5 champions, too.

Here are the full notes for TFT Set 5.5 Patch 11.16.

Nocturne will get a rework in TFT Patch 11.16 in which his spin ability deals bonus physical damage, scaling with ability power, while the Assassin champ’s heal no longer scales with ability power. Lucian will now work with items like Runnan’s Hurricane, Guinsoo’s Rageblade, and Titan’s Resolve with every other shot from The Culling now counting as an attack. The change to Lucian will make him stronger with these items but he’ll lose power from lost Cannoneer procs.
