TFT patch 11.15 marks the launch of Set 5.5, named Dawn of Heroes. The Reckoning Mid-Set release abolishes Shadow Items as Order reigns supreme, with new Radiant Items shaking up the meta. A host of new champions and traits are being added to.

The Reckoning has come in TFT, and Order has answered the call. With Chaos being defeated, Set 5.5 will bring a new dawn to the autobattler, with the rise of new mechanics in Dawn of Heroes.

Radiant Items will replace Shadow Items, supercharging everyone’s comps at the same time. 12 new champions are joining the roster too, including recent League releases Akshan and Gwen. Here’s what you need to know.

What’s coming in TFT patch 11.15?

New Radiant Items added for TFT Set 5.5

Radiant Items are replacing the Reckoning mechanic of Shadow Items. While they work similarly to their predecessor, Riot has put a limit on the number of Radiant Items you can get: One.

Every player gets a Radiant Armory at 3-6 to pick between five choices to bolster their team. Some items supercharge your hypercarries, while others bolster up your tanks into unkillable beasts.

Radiant Items aren’t the only new mechanic though. Divine Blessings have been added, giving players a chance to get back into the game once they hit 40 HP with drops of gold and item components.

12 new champions brought in for TFT Set 5.5

Akshan, Gwen, and Fiddlesticks will make their Teamfight Tactics debuts in Set 5.5 as three of the 12 new champions added in Dawn of Heroes.

Akshan, who is yet to be released in League of Legends, will be a five-cost Sentinel Ranger, swinging around the battlefield shredding armor and dishing out tons of damage. Gwen dances around with her scissors, while Fiddle unleashes a massive Crowstorm draining enemies to death.

The 12 new champions and select new traits, including the new Sentinel vertical, will replace 13 departing members of the original Reckoning roster along with traits like Coven and Dragonslayer. We’ve got a full list of changes here.

Akshan is the 157th champion added to League of Legends since early 2009.

Other Dawn of Heroes changes: New battle pass

As with any new TFT set, a new battle pass will be launching on TFT patch 11.15. The Reckoning II pass is loaded with new content, including booms, boards, and Little Legends.

There are big adjustments also being made to loot tables and reworked traits like Draconic and Forgotten to compensate for the mechanics changes.
