TFT patch 11.14 is upon us. The final update of Reckoning, before the Set 5.5 Mid-Set update at least, won’t shake up the meta too much ⁠— given it’s in a pretty balanced spot. However, the likes of Yasuo, Darius, and Garen are in Riot’s sights.

Typically, the last patch of a Teamfight Tactics set lifespan is pretty crazy. Riot likes to mess around with the numbers and have a bit of fun with things.

That’s not happening heading into the 5.5 Mid-Set update though. TFT patch 11.14 is as reserved as they come, with Riot being happy with the state of the meta right now, instead focusing on preparing for that all important relaunch.

Despite that stance, there’s still some changes on the way ⁠— just not any significant ones (unless you force Yasuo every game).

What’s coming in TFT patch 11.14?

Yasuo nerfs rein in power somewhat

Yasuo’s nerfs are the only really significant change leveled on the PBE so far. The three-cost carry received a handful of nerfs in TFT patch 11.13, but Riot believes those changes didn’t go far enough.

Riot Games
Yasuo’s nerf might bring new three-cost carries to the forefront of the TFT meta.

The new set of changes will lower his ability and bonus true damage at three-star. It’s not a massive amount ⁠— 700 to 650 ability damage, and 70 to 65 bonus true damage ⁠— but it’s quite drastic when you bundle it with his 11.13 nerfs.

As a slight compensation to Yasuo and the other Legionnaires, the trait is receiving a slight attack speed buff at four, six, and eight units.

God-Kings Darius and Garen on the change list too

The two rivaling God-Kings of the Convergence, Darius and Garen, are getting some changes in TFT patch 11.14. For Darius, it’s good news; while for Garen and the Dawnbringers, not so much.

Darius is having the percentage attack damage scaling on his ability increased at one and two-star. Garen, however, will have a shorter shield after casting his. The two changes likely won’t affect their places in the meta, but it’ll make Darius carry somewhat more viable.

Garen drew the God-King short straw.

On top of the aforementioned changes, Sett & Volibear are primed for buffs, and so too are the Skirmisher and Spellweaver traits. Gragas, Ivern, Viego, and Zyra will be receiving nerfs. This is on top of the nerfs to Lux and Redeemed earlier in the week in TFT patch 11.13b, which also hit Vel’Koz.

Hyper Roll Ranked Changes

  • At the end of last week we gave a lil’ boost to your ranked climb in Hyper Roll that makes the climb significantly easier for players as they climb to and through Purple Tier.
  • This is nice because we will be giving out emote rewards for players that reach Blue, Purple, and Hyper Tier by patch 11.15.
  • Hyper Roll tiers will not be hard reset come 11.15. Instead, anyone at Blue or higher will go to the bottom of Blue.
  • The rewards for Hyper Roll will come in patch 11.16 alongside the rest of the ranked rewards for the first half of Reckoning.
