TFT Patch 10.21 featured a major rework to Divine, making it one of the strongest comps in the game. Could the same happen to Dazzler after TFT Patch 10.22? There’s potential, with the trait set to be the big talking point of the update.

The previous TFT Fates update drastically shook up the meta. Elderwood-Mages and Brawler-Ashe are out, Divine is the new meta composition everyone is running.

However, could there be some changes to that power balance in TFT Patch 10.22? One of Divine’s biggest counters, Dazzler, is set to get a huge buff in a trait rework. It might not be enough to make Dazzler OP, but it could certainly hinder the meta comp.

Here’s everything you need to know about TFT Patch 10.22, which is set to go live on October 28.

Dazzler could be the answer to all your Divine worries.

Dazzler to cut up to 80% total attack damage after rework

Dazzler looked like one of the more interesting traits in TFT Fates, however it’s proven to be a relative flop compared to some more powerful counterparts. It’s much more efficient going Vanguard or Mystic for defensive traits than just slamming Dazzler in.

However, there might be a real reason to pursue Dazzler 4 after TFT Patch 10.22. The trait has been reworked so the more units you have on board, the stronger the attack damage reduction.

At two units, enemies will have their attack damage reduced by 50% for eight seconds ⁠— a buff on the current Dazzler 2. The big buff comes at four though, reducing enemy AD by a whopping 80% for eight seconds.

If you’re struggling against Duelist, Divine, Hunter, or any AD-centric compositions, Dazzler could be your get out of jail free card.

Traits for the most part though haven’t been the biggest issue with TFT Fates. It’s the champions themselves. Power picks like Ahri, Jinx, and Sett have been way more potent than an overpowered trait.

Riot have taken notice of this, and are going to further act on it in TFT Patch 10.22. They’ve got Kayn, Lee Sin, and Lillia in their sights for nerfs.

Kayn’s Shadow Assassin (blue) form will do less bonus damage. Lee Sin’s stun will be cut drastically at one and two-star, so your units have a chance of fighting back. Lillia’s sleep is also doing less damage late too.

Sett will be on the good side of history this time though. After his huge mana nerf in TFT Patch 10.20, Riot are giving The Boss some love with extra damage on his slam.

Outside of the aforementioned changes, Riot are targeting a few specific champions. Vayne, Morgana, Vi, Xin Zhao, Evelynn, and Nunu are getting buffed. Divine is also set to be nerfed, even after the hotfix went live.

Watch Dogs Legion character classes, skills & special equipment

Watch Dogs Legion aims to dramatically shake up the formula that its predecessors rigidly stuck by. The game takes a step forward, in particular with its characters, so let’s walk through the Watch Dogs Legion character Classes you’ll be able to choose from and how to get them.

Ubisoft really wanted to make the feel of Watch Dogs Legion completely different from the first two Watch Dogs games. As a result, the game has introduced an innovative concept of not having one single protagonist to guide through until the very end.

Instead, you make use of the game’s many NPCs, well PCs (every character is recruitable in the game), and you have to recruit a strong force to make DedSec strong enough to rebel against Zero Day’s and Albion’s intrusive stronghold over London.

So, read on ahead and we will run through everything we know about the 3 Watch Dogs Legion character classes so far, and their specific abilities and special equipment.

So, who are you going to recruit?

How to recruit people in Watch Dogs Legion

One of the key selling points for the game is that you can recruit anyone in the game’s world. Anyone. Whilst it does seem to be slightly unbelievable, it does actually appear to be the case.

According to Ubisoft‘s website: “Every Londoner has a unique backstory with a special skill set and a distinctive personality. Recruit anyone from an MI5 agent to an illegal street-racer and customize them with killer outfits and iconic masks.”

In order to acquire a new addition, you have to simply appease them. Complete a side-mission that cures them of their ailment and it frees them up to come and join the good fight at DedSec. This then allows you to play as them, and then – if you choose – they could be your main character for the rest of the game.

Unless they die… for good.


Different Watch Dogs Legion character classes

Having three different classes allows the player to diversify their workforce and provide different ways of approaching missions. Each class has a niche that makes them desirable for certain missions.

Ubisoft has even made a humorous video demonstrating this concept in action, showing you how it can be used effectively.

It seems that it may benefit the player to have some strategy as it may be needed to adequately set up right for certain missions.

So choose wisely.

Enforcer

Ubisoft
She may be older, but she’s certainly bolder acting as an Enforcer.

This is your go-to class when you wanna let the fists talk and the bullets fly.

Enforcer’s are purely dedicated to providing the best setup to furiously engage in combat to your heart’s content. With plenty of heavy weapons and various other deadly weapons for you to use, Enforcer is particularly skilled when it comes to absolute destruction. This class is better suited to a mission where stealth is perhaps not quite as key.

Special equipment: Sticky Mine – A mine that can be glued to any surface in the game.

Enforcer’s Skills:

  • Explosive Rounds – Ammunition that explodes on impact and can be fired from assault rifles and light machine guns.
  • Insert Coin – Sacrifices range for additional stopping power by giving the player a damage boost.

Hacker

Ubisoft
The Hacker is great for stealth and even better with its trusty Spiderbot.

The Hacker does exactly what it says on the tin – it hacks.

This class much prefers to operate in secrecy and foregoes the perils of being too close to the action as they can call upon their technology to do the heavy-hitting for them. The Hacker is quite capable of gaining control of small objects that can be used to the player’s advantage. Naturally, the class is ideal for stealthier missions where complete anonymity is vital.

Special Equipment: Spiderbot – A small, upgradeable robot that can be used to silently attacks enemies, get a hold of access codes for doors etc, and provide seamless access.

Hacker’s Skills:

  • Attract – A new Spiderbot ability that allows the player to distract guards in a local area.
  • Direct Control – Allows the Spiderbot to transform into a special turret mode.
  • Spider Army – This ability lets the player carry more Spiderbots and deploy them simultaneously.

Infiltrator

Ubisoft
The Infiltrator is silent, but deadly in the Watch Dogs Legion character classes.

The silent assassin.

Infiltrator likes to get up close and personal – similarly to Enforcer – but with the key difference of being undetected in their actions.

The class is very good at stunning opponents and even refraining from contact with them altogether. Like the Hacker, Infiltrator’s are preferential for stealthier operations, but its versatility means it could possibly be used for any occasion.

Special Equipment: AR Cloak – An instant coat of invisibility that allows for a quick escape, to sneak past guards, or even hide bodies.

Infiltrator’s Abilities:

  • Lunge – Effectively increases the player’s range of attack.
  • All-Seeing – Provides the ability to mark enemies in the area.
  • Shockwave – Produces an electrical shockwave, stunning anyone in the area.
  • First Strike – The SMG is now equipped with a silencer, allowing for the silent killing of enemies.

So there you go. That is everything we know so far about Watch Dogs Legion and its character classes, special equipment, and abilities.

As we get closer to the game’s release, more information will inevitably become available to the public domain. If it does, and we receive new information about these classes, then we’ll be sure to update you on more Watch Dogs Legion character classes info.
