The traditional Teamfight Tactics “fun update” via Patch 11.20 will arrive two weeks earlier than normal, containing a number of buffs and nerfs that will likely shake up the meta.

Set Six Gizmos and Gadgets is scheduled to release on Nov. 3, giving players a total of four weeks to enjoy the new Set 5.5 Dawn of Heroes meta via Patch 11.20. With the launch of 11.20, a second Radiant Armory will now drop at Stage 5-1 and at Stage 7-3 for Hyper Roll players. The TFT dev team has also added three new drops to the Radiant Blessing, while increasing its rare drops from 10 to 18 percent.

  • Eight item components at a 0.54 percent chance
  • A total of three Force of Nature at 0.18 percent chance
  • Two Neeko’s Help and 20 gold at 0.18 percent chance

Patch 11.20 will also officially launch Tactician Scouting following testing on the PBE servers. And the sole item receiving a balance change in Patch 11.20 is Radiant Quicksilver, increasing its attack speed from 40 to 45 percent. 

From Draconic buffs to a Yasuo and Kled nerf, here are the full notes for TFT Patch 11.20. 

Patch 11.20 trait buffs and nerfs

The TFT Reckoning World Championship has come to an end and so will its meta. Nerfs are being applied to traits like Hellion, Forgotten, Spellweaver, and Sentinel. Draconic is slated to receive a number of buffs while the TFT devs take another shot at making Skirmisher a viable late-game comp. The Ranger trait is getting an attack speed buff, and watch out for Abomination players chasing the trait to maximize the full potential of The Monstrosity.

One-cost re-roll champions like Vayne, Kalista, and Kled are taking a hit at three-star in Patch 11.20. Akashan will also be nerfed, toning down the Set 5.5 champion’s attack speed. Draven and Kayle, on the other hand, are getting a slight buff to their attack damage. Fiddlesticks is getting a mana buff and Mortdog has buffed Brand.

Viego is the best TFT champion to try to three-star in Patch 11.20. His buff is a mystery, but the dev team did say that “Viego at three-stars is now very powerful.”
