Teamfight Tactics has been bracing for Set 4.5, called “Festival of Beasts,” since the beginning of the year, and now it’s finally here in TFT patch 11.2. Here’s all the details on the Jan. 21 update, including early patch notes, and more.

It’s all in on TFT for Riot as the first real patch of 2021 rolls around; the “Festival of Beasts” update is set to throw the auto-battler’s status quo on its head.

Festival of Beasts adds 20 new champs

The biggest change set to arrive in patch 11.2 is, of course, the mid-set “swap over” for almost two dozen of the auto-battler’s popular Fates units. The Jan. 21 update, which has a distinct Chinese New Year theme, is adding 20 new-look champs to play with this “Fates” set.

Darius is one of 20 new units being added to TFT this patch.

Vanguard, Brawler, Sharpshooter reworked

Festival of Beasts isn’t just about bringing in new content. Some of the game’s pre-existing traits are getting reworked as well. Vanguard, Brawler, and Sharpshooter are the big three getting changes in the new set.

Vanguard will now give its users Magic Resist in the trait, making it a bit more diverse. Brawlers will also have access to attack damage, which is very handy if you decide to play the newly-released Shyvana.

Sharpshooters also spread their damage more with 2/3/4 ricochets at 2/4/6 instead of 1/2/3. While they do less damage, it means more Teemo blinds, and more mana-generating bounces, so you can get more effects off during each TFT battle.

Shyvana is one of the new TFT units that benefits from the patch 11.2 trait reworks.

On the balance side of things, Enlightened is set to be buffed, giving more mana, while Cultist is getting a boost to “entice players” into playing nine cultists. Mage, Assassin, Spirit, Duelist, Elderwood, Keeper, and Mystic have all been changed too.

Eight items, including Hextech Gunblade, Chalice of Power, and Zeke’s Herald have also been refreshed.
