TFT Patch 14.13: Balance Changes and What’s Coming Next

TFT Patch 14.13: Balance Changes and What’s Coming Next

24. June 2024 by Valentin Pasetti

Patch 14.13 for Teamfight Tactics (TFT) is here, marking the Tactician’s Crown update, previously known as Worlds. As Riot Games takes a summer break, this patch will last for three weeks.

This update brings several balance changes, primarily focusing on Pengu’s Party rather than the overall Set 11 meta, as the Inkborn Fables set approaches its end. Here’s everything you need to know about Patch 14.13.

System Changes in TFT Patch 14.13

With the Inkborn Fables set nearing its conclusion, Patch 14.13 does not introduce any major system changes. However, the odds of Prismatic orbs dropping have slightly increased, though they remain rare, according to game design director Stephen “Mortdog” Mortimer.

A notable addition is the Golden Item Remover, which converts all existing item removers on a player’s bench into Reforgers. New item removers acquired will also become Reforgers.

  • Imperial: Units buffed increased from 2/4 to 2/5.
  • Mascot: Base health regeneration increased from 1.5/6 to 1.5/7.5 percent.

Is This the Last TFT Set 11 Inkborn Fables Patch?

No, Patch 14.13 is not the final update for TFT Set 11. The next and last update for the Inkborn Fables set, Patch 14.14, will drop on July 17. This patch will be a “for fun” update and will also introduce TFT Set 12 onto the PBE servers for testing.
