TFT Patch 10.21 to feature Moonlight & Divine rework, Cultist nerf, more

Riot kept things measured for the last update, but in TFT Patch 10.21, some bigger changes are on the way. Moonlight and Divine are getting mini reworks, and a host of other traits like Cultist, Shade, and Vanguard are getting changed.

TFT Fates is currently in a pretty good spot of balance. Riot remarked before the release of TFT Patch 10.20 that they are looking to just make small changes to not throw the balance of power out.

However, TFT Patch 10.21 will definitely shake things up on the face of it. Two trait reworks, a lot of buffs, and more ⁠— the meta could shift when the update drops on October 14.

You will be able to get two four-stars with this Moonlight buff in TFT Patch 10.21.

Moonlight now gives two four-star champions

You can currently get Moonlight Chosen to help set up your composition with two units instead of three. However, there’s four Moonlight units, so getting any more is a bit of a waste considering the trait caps out at three units.

In TFT Patch 10.21 though, you might actually have a reason to pursue a five Moonlight composition. The trait is getting a five-unit buff, where it stars up two units instead of one. This means you can actually get two four-star champions.

However, it raises the dilemma. Do you pursue two four-stars ⁠— especially with Diana nerfs also in the pipeline ⁠— or do you build out into more useful traits? If you land the early three-stars it’ll be worth, but be careful pushing for it too hard.

Divine units will now have a CC cleanse inbuilt into their trait.

Divine to give more powerful, but temporary buff

Divine currently in TFT is a bit underutilized. While the buff is powerful with the bonus true damage, it lurks in the shadows of other powerful traits like Dusk and Spirit. However, that might chance in TFT Patch 10.21.

The new Divine trait will give a more powerful buff, but it’ll only be temporary. It’ll have the same activation ⁠— six attacks, or dropping below 50% health ⁠— but activating it will instantly cleanse all crowd control.

Divine champions will then take 80% reduced damage and deal 50% bonus true damage. The buff duration will increase in length from three to 15 seconds depending on the number of Divine units you have. This more powerful buff might be enough to make Divine worth pursuing.

Cultist nerfed as Galio now scales on unit star levels

With Spirit now taken care of, Riot have turned their attention to Cultist. The Galio-spawning trait is incredibly strong in the early game, where you can splash it in at either three or six-units for a hugely powerful buff.

However, they’re making it less of a splashable trait and something you have to invest in. Galio will now scale based on his Cultist allies star levels. His base AD and health have been tanked to encourage players to commit to Cultist or pivot.

Looking elsewhere, Shade is also getting extra damage at all levels, while there’s a new Vanguard eight-unit bonus giving units 2,000 armor ⁠— good luck shredding through that. Ninja is getting a buff at four units too to hopefully drag the underpowered trait up.

Champions-wise, Elise, Jarvan IV, Azir, Lillia, Zilean, Nidalee, Teemo, and Kennen are set to get buffs, mostly to their ability damage.

Diana, as we mentioned earlier, is getting a nerf after her recent buff though. She will have less orbs at four stars, meaning her ability is less of a nuke. Kayn, Jax, Veigar, Riven, Jhin, Talon, and Ahri are on the nerf list too.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 17 live: release time, leaks, predictions

The next FIFA 21 Team of the Week, TOTW 17, is now on its way in Ultimate Team ⁠— here’s everything we know about the next in-form team of 2021, including any EA SPORTS leaks, the promo’s release time, and more.

There’s a number of stars that could slot into the in-form Ultimate Team lineup this week, including Bayern’s Thomas Müller, who had a hand in two goals against Freiburg as man of the match, and Lorenzo Insigne, for a goal and assist.

Ajax’s Klaas-Jan Huntelaar also wound back the clock with a late goal for his ladder-leading Amsterdam side against FC Twente. It would be his first in-form since April, 2019.

Perhaps the biggest game of the week played out at Anfield. There, defending champs Liverpool and archrivals United slugged it out for first, though neither could strike a knockout blow; in part, thanks to TOTW 17 contender Allison Becker.

Here’s everything we know about the mid-week FIFA 21 promo so far, including when the Team of the Week lineup will drop, and Dexerto’s weekly predictions.

So far, EA SPORTS hasn’t let any early Team of the Week cards slip ⁠— after hilarious moments ahead of both TOTW 7, and more recently 10, when they accidentally shipped 11 upgraded cards early, they’re likely playing it extra safe.

If any leaks drop ahead of the official TOTW 17 reveal, we’ll keep you updated.
