TFT Set 5 Patch 11.13: Full notes and updates

A number of changes go into effect with the Set Five midset just around the corner.

Balance within the Teamfight Tactics Set Five meta is starting to come together with another significantly large patch.

Scheduled to release on June 23, Patch 11.13 contains a number of “big and small” nerfs and buffs. A couple of reworks and system changes to the Bonus Armories are also taking place.

Only four weeks of Set Five Reckoning remain before the midset release. The TFT team will continue to work to move the meta toward a competitive, healthy, and overall good place. 

Here are the full notes and updates for TFT Patch 11.13.

Patch 11.13 bug fixes

The TFT team continues to catch up on Set Five bugs, with only a handful of fixes taking place in Patch 11.13.

  • Eight Assassin will no longer turn off the trait’s bonus.
  • Summoned units like Wolf, Daisy, Heimerdinger’s Turret, and Zz’Rot’s Voidspawn will now correctly have 130 percent base critical strike damage. 
  • An issue where Reforger was creating the same component from a reforged one has been resolved.
  • Eclipse Cape will apply self-burn if equipped mid-combat.
  • Teemo was showing up in the shop with a gold purchase option after being rolled with Loaded Dice. He will now show up as an HP purchase. 
  • A known bug with Soraka’s tooltip displaying a 35 percent mana reave at three-stars was introduced while working on a potential Soraka change. Three-star Soraka will still be reaving for 50 percent. The bug will be resolved next patch.
