The largest Teamfight Tactics Set Six PBE patch dropped today, hitting everything from Hextech Augments and items to champions at every cost. 

Launching early on Oct. 26, the Set Six update was in response to a weekend of testing and the PBE Clash tournament. A number of Hextech Augments were rebalanced from stats to tier placement, while just about every Gizmos and Gadgets champion got some form of buff or nerf.

Scheduled to officially release on Nov. 3, the Oct. 26 TFT Set Six PBE patch should be the final update of this magnitude prior to launch, according to game design director Stephen “Mortdog” Mortimer.
