Pokemon Go is kicking off 2021 with an Incense Day dedicated to Gen II’s Mareep. The day-long celebration will also feature boosted spawn rates of Dragon & Electric types, as well as a chance to catch Shiny ‘mon.

Niantic has dedicated the first month of the new year to honor previous regions leading up to the Kanto Tour in February. In late January, Pokemon Go players will get to re-experience Gold & Silver with the Johto Celebration.

It’s fitting then that one of 2021’s first Incense Days is dedicated to Gen II’s Mareep. Here is everything you need to know about the limited time event, including how to get your hands on a Ampharos that knows Dragon Pulse!

Pokemon Go Mareep Incense Day date & start time

The festivities officially will began on January 24 at 11:00AM local time and end at 5:00PM on the same day. While Mareep will have a boosted attraction to Incense for the entire day, Electric and Dragon ‘mon will spawn at different times.

For instance, at 1:00PM to 2:00PM, players will have a high chance to run into Dratini, Bagon, or Swablu. Best of all, the selected monsters making an appearance during the celebration have a chance of being Shiny.

Below we will go over the schedule for the event. Those looking for a certain Pokemon should make sure to write down the times that the character’s type is active, as it will alternate throughout the day.

Pokemon Go Mareep Incense Day features & items

As the event will require you to have an Incense active, Niantic is offering Trainers a box bundle with three of them for just one coin. This should help many fans participate in the limited time celebration. To acquire, simply log into Go and go to the Shop on January 24.

Perhaps the most interesting reward of the Incense Day is the chance to get a Ampharos with previous Community Day-exclusive move, Dragon Pulse. Players just need to evolve a Flaffy during the seven hours and its final evolution will have the powerful move.

While not everyone may be looking for extra Mareep, the Incense Day is packed with incredible ‘mon. If you manage to catch a Shiny Dratini for instance, you could evolve it into a Dragonite.

Players also looking to complete the Hoenn Challenge should take advantage of the celebration to catch a Plusle & Minun, which both have boosted spawn rates for two hours.

TFT b-patch 11.4 notes: Olaf nerfs, Nasus & Nidalee buffs

A small update for Teamfight Tactics is here with TFT b-patch 11.4. Riot is finetuning some adjustments after their big changes, with the February 24 patch including nerfs to Olaf, as well as buffs to Nasus and Nidalee.

TFT patch 11.4 drastically shook up the game’s meta. Reroll comps were nerfed into the ground, leading to the rise of Slayers and Vanguard-Mystic Neeko.

However, the changes went a bit too far. With Olaf becoming the number one comp instantly, Riot are keen to draw back his power in a big way. On the other hand, Nasus and Nidalee were hit a bit too hard for the devs’ liking.

TFT b-patch 11.4 includes changes for all of these units, and more.

Olaf AD increased, but Runaan’s change is huge nerf

Olaf has quickly risen to the number one carry in TFT with the big nerfs to all his rivals in TFT patch 11.4. Paired with Runaan’s Hurricane, he could cleave through entire teams 1v9. Now, that interaction is changing.

“Hurricane has proved to be too synergistic with Olaf, making him too powerful with the item, but too weak without it. We’re removing the Hurricane interaction, but will be giving him some AD to compensate and open up other build paths,” TFT dev Rodger ‘Minionsrpeople2’ Caudill said in the amended patch notes.

The loss of the Runaan’s proc on his ultimate makes his damage output significantly weaker. While an increase in AD will help balance out the nerf, Olaf forcers will certainly feel the change.

Nasus & Nidalee get compensation buff after early nerfs

On the other side of the equation, after getting nuked in the last update, reroll carries Nasus and Nidalee are getting some assistance. Nasus’ mana is getting decreased so he can cast more readily, while Nidalee’s damage at two and three-star is also up.

The changes may not make either comp S-Tier in the meta, but it’s a handy buff. Talon is also getting a huge bugfix that keeps his mana bar full if a target dies midway through his ability animation.

Quicksilver and Runaan’s bugs have also been squashed in the b-patch. You can find the full TFT b-patch 11.4 notes below, courtesy of Riot.
