Teamfight Tactics Final Patch Ahead of Runeterra Reforged Bids Farewell to Monsters Attack

A new expansion is coming.

Riot Games' next update for Teamfight Tactics is called Runeterra Reforged. It will completely change the landscape of the online game by adding new elements, classes, and game mechanics. The release of Patch 13.11 sees the last patch before Runterra officially releases and if you're curious to see know what's been added and what's coming to the game, here's what you need to know.

Portals, Portals, and More Portals

One of the newest additions coming to Teamfight Tactics is the inclusion of portals. The developers talked it up so much during the Set 9 livestream reveal and now we know a bit more about them. When a match begins, players can vote on what portal to start at. Each portal includes bonuses of buffs for party members so choosing a portal is strategic. Each stage comes with multiple portals for players to choose from.

Stage 2-6 Portals

Stage 2-6 Portals have a 100% chance of appearing.

  • Demacia: Gain 2 item components.
  • Void: Gain a Thief’s Gloves.
  • Zaun: Gain 10 gold.

Stage 3-3 Portals

Stage 3-3 Portals have a 100% chance of appearing.

  • Ionia: Target Dummy + 15 gold.
  • Shadow Isles: Champion Duplicator + Two 4-cost Champions.
  • Noxus: 2 full Item Anvils.
  • Freljord: Ornn Anvil.

Stage 4-3 Portals

Stage 4-3 Portals have a 100% chance of appearing.

  • Targon: Gain a Tactician’s Crown.
  • Piltover: Gain a Loaded Dice, a Lesser Champion Duplicator, a Remover, and a Reforger.
  • Shurima: Gain a Tome of Traits and 6 gold.

It seems silly to talk about one specific item such as an egg but they are important in the world of Teamfight Tactics. Eggs hatch into Little Legends, the main character you play as on the screen. Patch 13.11 is changing how players can gain eggs. They will no longer be purchasable in the shop but you will still be able to hold and open them past patch 13.12.

Pride Month Celebrations

In honor of Pride Month, Teamfight Tactics is celebrating by adding new booms, emotes, icons, and a rainbow trail.

Patch 13.11 Changes and Updates

Now we come to changes impacting legends, traits, and units for Teamfight Tactics. The following updates are being made to ensure proper gameplay balance and mechanics when you play TfT.


  • InfiniTeam has too much power early in the game. We’re happy with where InfiniTeam 7 is so we’re leaving it in the same place: infinity…or 85%.
  • InfiniTeam Health and Damage: 50/55/85% ⇒ 45/50/85%
  • Quickdraw has suffered as a vertical ever since we nerfed Lucian and Miss Fortune. We’re a bit slow on the draw here, but the trait should be more rewarding to commit to now.
  • Quickdraw Bonus Damage: 70/140/220% ⇒ 70/150/235%
  • Star Guardian is getting a new friend and with his arrival, it becomes easier to splash in the trait, so we’re shipping a nerf to everything but Star Guardian 8 to compensate. The friend is Urgot. Sorry, I’m just so excited.
  • Star Guardian Mana Generation: 35/70/120/175 ⇒ 30/60/100/175

Changes to Units

As Teamfight Tactics is always online, Riot Games is constantly making updates to units and either buffing or nerfing their power and strength. The following units are affected by this patch and players will see the according changes when they log into the game.

Tier 1

Gangplank gets an Attack Speed buff that’ll make him more powerful with Duelist and as a holder for AD items if you feel so inclined—but maybe use Kayle here because…

Kayle is getting some considerable buffs to make her less of a dead unit in Underground and Duelist vertical. Maybe win-streak Underground will make a rise? Not likely though.

We’re shipping a VERY big buff to 3-star Lux that goes past our 50% framework of power increases for 3-star units. So try her out, especially with her Hero Augment, Illuminating Singularity!

  • Gangplank AS: 0.7 ⇒ 0.75
  • Kayle Starfire Spellblade AD ratio: 155% ⇒ 175%
  • Kayle Starfire Spellblade Base Damage: 25/35/50 ⇒ 30/45/65
  • Lucian Chrono-Barrage Passive Magic On Attack: 20/30/45 ⇒ 25/35/50
  • Lux Lucent Singularity Damage: 230/345/520 ⇒ 240/360/600

Tier 2

Fiora is getting tankier for the next few seconds after her cast. Pair her with Bloodthirster, Death’s Dance, and Infinity Edge not because those items are good on her, but because she really likes swords, so it’d be a nice thing to do.

  • Fiora En Garde! Damage Reduction: 20% ⇒ 25%

Tier 3

Rammus is leaving the set with a bang. Mort has finally come to terms with Rammus and decided to give him an additional buff to the armor granted on his passive. This buff is equal to what Mort would rate his affections for Rammus on a scale of 1 to 10. Together, with you, Mort, and Rammus, we’ve made some huge steps this set and I’d like to thank you all for coming along this journey of Mort’s personal growth and discovery of his feelings towards Rammus. Rammus will not be returning next set.

  • Rammus max Mana buff: 60/120 ⇒ 50/110
  • Rammus Sand Slam Passive Armor: 60/90/150 ⇒ 61/91/151
  • Riven Bunny Blade empowered attacks Damage: 90/135/225 ⇒ 100/150/250

Tier 4

Bel’Veth gets a buff that will allow her Endless Banquet to approach endlessness faster.

Neeko hasn’t had her chance to shine much in this set. Maybe it’s because she’s too busy trying to be other people and not herself. We love Neeko for who she is and are shipping a buff for that reason—and because she’s a bit underpowered.

  • Aatrox Soul Crush Damage (Both Casts): 220/330/1200 ⇒ 250/375/1200
  • Bel’Veth AS Per Endless Banquet Cast: 30% ⇒ 35%
  • Neeko Hop Blossoms Small Frog Damage: 75/110/300 ⇒ 80/120/360
  • Neeko Hop Blossoms Big (3rd) Frog Damage: 150/225/700 ⇒ 160/240/720
  • Warwick hack&SLASH AD ratio: 460/480/1200% ⇒ 500/500/1500%

Tier 5

We’re giving our underperforming 5-costs some love to make sure they go out as heroes!

Monsters Attack! began with the biggest Star Guardian superfan's misguided attempts to join the team. And with our final patch, dreams (and memes) really do come true as Urgot is now a Star Guardian. His Undertow wave now also gives you a 1-star copy of any unit it does lethal (read: befriending) damage to. To compensate for this added power we’ve had to nerf his mana significantly. Bring on the friendship waves!

  • Fiddlesticks Dark Harvest Damage: 90/135/800 ⇒ 100/150/800
  • Leona max Mana buff: 0/75 ⇒ 0/50
  • Ultimate Ezreal AD: 60 ⇒ 64
  • Ultimate Ezreal Attack Speed: 0.9 ⇒ 0.95
  • Urgot is now a Star Guardian Threat
  • If Urgot’s Undertow wave deals lethal damage, a chest will spawn giving a 1-star copy of the friend he made along the way.
  • Urgot Mana nerf: 80/160 ⇒ 100/200

Hero Augments

We’re buffing all the Hero Augments that have even been slightly underperforming. Give them a try!

Lucian - Enchanted Ammunition base AP: 20 ⇒ 30

  • Poppy - Steadfast Presence HP Shield: 325 ⇒ 375
  • Renekton - Reign of Anger AS per 100 missing HP: 5% ⇒ 6%
  • Wukong - Re-Energize Mana Restore: 50% ⇒ 66%
  • Fiora - Grand Challenge Heal Percent: 9% ⇒ 12%
  • Malphite - Rock Solid - Armor to AP ratio: 111% ⇒ 130%
  • Shen - Time Knife Bonus Damage: 250% ⇒ 300%
  • Bel’Veth - Voidmother Voidling HP: 60% ⇒ 88%
  • Ekko - Destructive Resonance Damage Amp: 200% ⇒ 240%
  • Ekko - Chronobreak Stun Delay: 10 sec ⇒ 8 sec
  • Ekko - ChronobreakStun Duration: 2 ⇒ 2.5 sec
  • Miss Fortune - Make It Rain Gold in Stage 3: 8 ⇒ 10
  • Miss Fortune - Make It Rain Gold in Stage 4+: 20 ⇒ 25
  • Neeko - Starlight Resonance AP on cast: 15 ⇒ 18
  • Janna - Exaggerated Reporting Bonus Weather: 100% ⇒ 200%
  • Syndra - Not In Vain AS per ally death: 40% ⇒ 75%

Bug Fixes

Lost in space: Fixed an interaction animation with missing sound effects in the Mecha Prime Zero arena

MY EYES: Fixed an issue with all tiers of PROJECT: Burno where their eye textures appear corrupted on multiple animations.

Patch 13.11 is the last patch for Monsters Attack. The next patch, patch 13.12, will see Teamfight Tactics shift over to Runeterra Reforged alongside its launch on June 14.

With the update, you'll see changes to player data which we monitor through our official Teamfight Tactics stat tracker. Check it out to see who is on top of the leaderboards.
