Teamfight Tactics Patch 11.21 Notes & Breakdown

Teamfight Tactics Patch 11.21 Notes & Breakdown

Welcome to our analysis for TFT Patch Notes 11.21!

UPDATED for 11.21

Set 5 is coming to a close, and many players are excited to try out Set 6 on the PBE. If you haven’t seen much about Set 6 yet, make sure to check our Reveal Pagedetailing everything you need to know.

This last patch for Set 5.5 is very small, and thus, the meta isn’t going to be changing much. Even still, it’s important to keep up with everything to get the best advantage you can.

TFT Patch 11.21 Highlights

Biggest Changes this Patch

  • Nothing in Particular: Honestly, this patch isn’t changing very much. The meta will largely be the same as it was last patch.

As always, you’ll find the info from the patch notes in italics followed by our analysis. Later on, we’ll cover buffs in green, nerfs in red, and reworks/powershifts in yellow.

Large Changes

Traits

Buffs:

  • Mystic Magic Resist: 40/80/150/250 ⇒ 40/80/175/300
    • Having 4 or 5 Mystic is a tall order, but if you can fit it, this may come in handy.

Champions: Tier 3

Nerfs:

  • Miss Fortune Make it Rain Damage: 250/375/600 ⇒ 250/375/550
  • Zyra Grasping Roots Damage: 200/300/575 ⇒ 200/300/525

Two 3-star carry candidates are getting nerfed. Expect more 4-cost carries to be played.

Champions: Tier 4

Buffs:

  • Lucian Attack Damage: 70 ⇒ 75
    • Not sure if this buff was necessary as Lucian feels quite strong, but he definitely didn’t pack as much of a punch late game compared to other carries.

Nerfs:

  • Vel’Koz Lifeform Disintegration Ray Damage: 900/1150/4000 ⇒ 850/1100/4000
    • Squid has been a consistent magic damage carry for a very long time. Vel’Koz still will be strong, just not as strong.

Champions: Tier 5

Buffs:

  • Kayle
    3rd Ascension Immunity: Every 15th Attack ⇒ Every 12th Attack
    Final Ascension Damage: 80/125/4000 ⇒ 90/150/4000
    • Kayle has been seeing more play with Legionnaires becoming strong, but she still can be quite a liability. These small buffs are nice for the Kayle stall comp, but largely won’t affect Legionnaires too much.

Nerfs:

  • Akshan Health: 850 ⇒ 800
    • Akshan has been swinging around carrying games for a while now. So a small HP nerf will help bring him down before he swings too much.

Small Changes

As usual, for small changes, I won’t be commenting on every change, but only the changes that I believe have a chance to make more than a small impact on the meta.

Traits

Buffs:

  • Sentinel Attack Speed: 20/80/500% ⇒ 20/80/600%

Nerfs:

  • Abomination Stage Health and Attack Damage Scaling: 16% ⇒ 13%
    Legionnaire Attack Speed: 25/75/135/250% ⇒ 25/70/135/250%

Champions: Tier 1

Buffs:

  • Poppy Buckler Toss Damage: 150/250/400 ⇒ 150/250/450

Champions: Tier 2

Buffs:

  • Syndra Force of Will Damage: 250/350/600 ⇒ 250/350/650

Champions: Tier 5

Buffs:

  • Gwen: 3-Star Gwen’s snips now reach a much larger area
  • Heimerdinger Upgrade!!! Damage: 400/600/3333 ⇒ 425/600/3333

Nerfs:

  • Akshan Heroic Swing bonus Attack Speed: 70/85/400 ⇒ 60/70/400
