An enormous Teamfight Tactics patch was revealed by Riot Games for Set Six, with buffs to underperformers, nerfs to dominant carriers, and a host of Hextech Augment balance changes. 

Patch 11.24 within Gizmos and Gadgets is the second major update in Set Six and will last through the winter holidays. It’s packed with balance changes, adjustments, and reworks. The 11.24 TFT update focuses on Hextech Augment balance, combat pace, and a shift away from one and two-star reroll. Hyper Roll Cho’Gath players can celebrate over the Set Six champion gaining twice as many Feast stacks and the points earned via TFT for League events have been reworked. 

From a massive number of Hextech Augment changes to nerfs and buffs applied to champs and traits, here are the TFT Set Six Patch 11.24 notes

Trait Augments

And Prismatic Augments (Crowns and Souls) have been changed to now grant two emblems, allowing players to capitalize on the trait’s power.
