Teamfight Tactics’ (TFT) Patch 10.12 mid-set update promised to refresh the catalogue of units available in game, and it looks like players have gotten their first look. FIve new champions have been leaked ahead of the June 10 update.

The mid-set update for TFT Galaxies is set to be a big one. Riot has promised a ranked reset, a new pass, and a major meta shift. The biggest update, however, is coming to the line-up of champions in Set 3.

Riot have said some units will be removed and replaced by new ones, as well as a shift in traits and classes. Now, players have gotten a first peek at what they could see, with a leak of some of the new TFT units.

A Chinese player managed to extract the files from the client after the Patch 10.10 update, and uncovered some secrets for the upcoming update. Nidalee, Gnar, Janna, Morgana, and Kog’Maw look to be joining the new set.

Nidalee and Gnar both feature the Super Galaxy skin. This means we could see a retooling of Mech-Pilot to fit them in, or possibly a new trait altogether with the new champions.

Janna is rocking up in her Star Guardian skin, making her a perfect fit for the Star Guardian trait. The leaker also reported that she will be receiving her shield as an ability in Teamfight Tactics. Previously, Janna used her ultimate, Monsoon, as her ability.

Morgana’s Blade Mistress skin doesn’t fit into any of the traits currently available in TFT Galaxies, so it’s the perfect opportunity for Riot to perhaps add a new one.

Finally, Kog’Maw is the last ⁠— and most interesting ⁠— leak of the lot. The leaker managed to extract two files of Kog’Maw ⁠— one of his regular skin, and one of his Battlecast cosmetic.

This, combined with the return of Gnar and Nidalee, has raised suspicions about Shapeshifters making a return in Set 3, but it’s currently unclear.

As with any leak, it has to be taken with a grain of salt. These could be changed at any time ⁠— or completely disproven. We will only know when Patch 10.12 hits the PBE on May 28, after the release of Patch 10.11.

This might not be the end of what we hear about Patch 10.12 before then either, so keep your eyes peeled for any new information out on the horizon.

Riot dev responds to broken League damage bug with Ravenous Hydra

A Riot Games developer has responded to a bizarre bug in League of Legends, which is preventing the Ravenous Hydra from working with certain champions’ abilities in-game.

Riot Games introduced plenty of changes in the 2021 preseason patch such as completely revamping the League Item Shop and items to improve the game’s experience before Season 11 kicks off.

Ravenous Hydra is one of the items that has remained in League, but it received some updated stats amid the changes. The item still provides players with lifesteal, in the form of Omnivamp, but Riot has now removed the Crescent Active and added 20 Ability Haste in its place.

However, one thing that has not changed much is the item’s passive ability Cleave, which allows basic attacks and abilities to trigger extra damage, which varies based on the distance between targets.

Urgot's splash artLeague players called for a Ravenous Hydra fix after a glitch was found with champions like Urgot.

There are some champions with abilities that had unique interactions with this item, such as Aphelios’ Severum Q, but players have now noticed a bug, which stops it from working correctly with certain champions.

The issue was raised with League dev Riot Phlox, with one Redditor explaining that champions with multi-hit abilities, like Urgots W, Renekton W, and Warwick’s Ult seem to be where the problem lies.

Riot Phlox responded to the bug, revealing that they are now aware of the unusual damage glitch with Ravenous Hydra and that it would be passed on to the League Dev team.

“I’ll pass this along so we can make sure there are eyes on it, thanks!” the League dev responded, confirming they would soon be working on it.

However, he also revealed that he was unsure just when a fix might be issued for this broken damage bug, adding that they “can’t give a timeframe.”

While it is unclear when the patch will arrive in League of Legends, this will still come as good news to Urgot mains, and those who play similar champs, after they were quite vocal on this issue, as it will soon allow them to have more build options in-game.
