TFT patch 11.13 notes: Yasuo & Nidalee carry nerfed, Skirmisher buffs

TFT patch 11.13 Soraka

TFT patch 11.13 is here, and Riot’s game plan seems to be tuning the new “Chase” traits. Renewer and Skirmisher find themselves in the patch notes, as well as more nerfs to Katarina, Soraka, Nidalee, Yasuo, and more.

It’s hard to think about, but we’re almost halfway through TFT Reckoning ⁠— at least, halfway towards the mid-set update. The meta has settled down, everyone is getting a grip of the new mechanics, and now eyes are looking towards the overhaul in a few patches.

However, before then, Riot is still fine-tuning the live game.

After dealing with Skirmishers and Riven carry, now Renewers are in the developer’s sights for TFT patch 11.13. Here’s what we know about the fast-approaching update.

What’s coming in TFT patch 11.13?

Renewers getting nerfed with more Soraka changes

Renewers has risen up as one of the go-to meta comps in TFT Reckoning thanks to the power of Soraka. The insane healing and mana generation of the composition made it a real threat, but with a two-pronged nerf, Renewers could slide down in priority.

Soraka is having her mana cost increase on an enemy’s next ability reduced at three-star, down to 35% flat across all ranks and not 50%. This, combined with a 6 Renewer chase trait nerf, will bring her power more in line with other carries.

While Soraka carry will still be relevant, it’s definitely not as strong as it once was. The critical strike changes, plus the 11.13 nerfs, will likely knock her down a couple of tiers.

Yasuo is getting a little nerf at three-star as Riot continues to target three-cost carries.

Three-cost carries like Yasuo receive another set of nerfs

Katarina, Nidalee, Yasuo, and other three-cost carries are about to receive the Hecarim treatment in TFT. After the 11.12 changes didn’t obviously go far enough, the cheap reroll carries will receive a few more nerfs in the next update.

Katarina’s nerfs aren’t too massive. She’s losing some power at one-star. However, the Yasuo nerfs at one and two-star will make sure that players need to hit Yasuo 3 to slice their way to a victory.

The same goes for Nidalee, who is getting sliced at two and three-star.

Lee Sin is getting an individual nerf, but the Skirmisher buff makes up for it.

Skirmishers getting big buffs

Despite the Lee Sin solo nerf, the Skirmisher trait is getting a bit of love. Both 6 Skirmisher and 9 Skirmisher will have their max health shield increased, and there’ll be extra AD on offer at the maximum rank too.

Kennen is also getting a little buff after harsh nerfs in TFT patch 11.11b. He is getting a bit of his damage back at three-star, but not a total revert of the big changes he was slapped with.

Nightbringer, Dawnbringer, Legionnaire, Redeemed, and Ranger are all primed for buffs as well.

Nerf wise, Varus, Karma, and Teemo are on the chopping block, as well as the aforementioned changes.

Teemo TFT Set 5
Teemo is getting nerfed in TFT patch 11.13 too.
