The first Teamfight Tactics PBE patch for Set Six contained a number of bug fixes and adjustments that hit champions and Hextech Augments. 

Updating on the PBE around 2pm CT on Oct. 20, bug fixes are the focus of this patch along with a number of balance changes. ZZ’Rot Portal will no longer crash a game when built and Shaco’s spell won’t benefit twice from critical strike damage. Tahm Kench and his Glutton trait were given a rework while Lux was slightly nerfed due to overperforming yesterday. 

Here’s every TFT Set Six PBE balance change from the Oct. 20 patch notes:
