Teamfight Tactics patch 10.7 includes a number of buffs to low-tier units and traits, as well as some new graphical updates.
It’s no secret that many of TFT’s 1-star tier-5 units can instantly turn a game around. Ekko and Miss Fortune were singled out in the patch as units that can clear the frontline with just one skill, so Riot’s knocking them down a notch by lowering Ekko’s spell damage (250/450/2000 ⇒ 225/400/2000) and nerfing MF in attack speed (1.1 ⇒ 1.0), mana (50/150 ⇒ 75/175), and spell damage (70%/90%/999% ⇒ 60%/80%/999%).
Since lower-tier champions tend to fall off in the late-game phase, Riot has buffed some of them to increase their viability in specific comps. Caitlin now has a quicker spell cast (1.5 seconds ⇒ 1.1) while Darius gets a solid health boost (650 ⇒ 750).
With Caitlin already receiving buffs as a champion, she gets a decent upgrade in both of her traits. Snipers now do more bonus damage (12% ⇒ 15%) while Chrono users can now expect a significant attack speed ramp-up at six stacks (15%/35%/65% ⇒ 15%/35%/75%).
Defensive traits also get a sizable nerf for this patch. Mystics have less magic resist (30/120 ⇒ 35/105) while Brawlers receive less health as a four-stack (300/750 ⇒ 300/700).
With defensive nerfs across the board, Riot is making up for it by adjusting a few health-based items. Morellonomicon and Redbuff deal less burn damage (30% ⇒ 27%) while Warmogs gets a slight bump in its health regen (4% ⇒ 5%).
A few graphical updates have also been introduced. You now have a more glorious win-streak fire beside your icon while champions enjoy your victorious rounds with a celebratory dance.
As for gameplay changes, Riot has added the highly-anticipated Galaxies mechanic, giving players a nice twist in every game.
- The Neekoverse: Everyone gets two free copies of Neeko’s Help.
- Lilac Nebula: The first carousel contains only four cost units.
- Medium Legends: Little Legends are larger and you have +25 starting health.
A new quality of life change will now also see Champions always prioritize items from champions on the board, unequipping the items of the benched variant.
