Patch 10.7 to bring Galaxies set mechanic, nerf five-cost units

The Galaxies mechanic is finally landing in TFT Patch 10.7 alongside balance changes to the most expensive units and numerous champion and trait adjustments.

Teamfight Tactics Patch 10.7 is going to shake up a lot of things in the Riot Games autobattler as champions and traits are adjusted alongside the introduction of different Galaxies for the first time beyond the PBE.

Below is a full rundown of all of the Patch 10.7 changes as detailed in Lead Designer on Teamfight Tactics at Riot Games Stephen "Mortdog" Mortimer's video.

System changes

Galaxies

Riot initially delayed the Galaxies mechanic for the launch of the third set in order to give more time to test them. While the majority of games will still be regular Teamfight Tactics matches, there is a 45% chance for a game to take place in one of the new Galaxies instead.

The three Galaxies that will be introduced in Patch 10.7 are The Neekoverse, Lilac Nebula (previously called Purple Haze in the PBE) and Medium Legends Galaxy. There will be a distinct symbol at the centre of the carousel to indicate whether you are in one of the Galaxies or not.

The Neekoverse will see all players receive two free copies of Neeko's Help at the start of the game, Lilac Nebula makes all of the first carousel units four cost champions and the Medium Legends Galaxy will make the Little Legends not-so-little with 25 bonus starting health.

More Galaxies will be added in the next patch and players will be challenged to adapt to unexpected circumstances and develop new strategies to create the best builds and counter the opposition.

Other changes

Further changes will be made to various elements of the game system:

  • Level eight champion tier percentage rates dropped from 13/20/35/35/7 to 14/20/35/35/6
  • Special carousels occur less often now
  • The rules for which items stay on champion combine now prioritise items on the board
  • Removed the additional five seconds per phase for start of set
  • Ekko, Irelia, Lucian, Xin Zhao attacks performed as part of their spell can now trigger the effects of Statikk Shiv, Guinsoo's Rageblade and Runaan's Hurrican
  • Champions now celebrate when they are victorious
  • Graves' splash art has been updated to match his in-game model more closely

Players had noticed carousels that gave all champions the same item and Kayn rounds that provided him with three instead of the usual one item and were wondering what influenced these mechanics. The special carousels will now appear less while no word was given on the rarity of more powerful Kayns.

The drop rate at level eight has now been brought back to the level it was during Rise of the Elements and it will be harder to find the strongest units without being at the maximum level.

Trait changes

Two traits will see big reworks in Patch 10.7, Dark Star and Mana-Reaver, while other traits will see smaller adjustments.

Dark Star

When a Dark Star champion dies, all other allied Dark Star champions gain attack damage and spell power

  • Three = +25 attack damage and spell power
  • Six = +35 attack damage and spell power

This now allows all Dark Star champions to gain the buff rather than just a random nearby champion.

Mana-Reaver

Mana-Reaver auto attacks increase the mana cost of their target's next spellcast by 40% with two on the board instead of requiring all four Mana-Reaver. The lack of popularity for Mana-Reavers in the 10.6 meta has led to this change and can now counter a powerful rival frontline casters.

Smaller changes have been made to five other traits:

Blademaster

  • Chance for two bonus attacks increased from 30/55% to 30/60%

Brawler

  • Bonus HP decreased from 300/750 to 300/700

Mystic

  • Magic resistance to allies changed from 30/120 to 35/105

  • Bonus damage per hex distance increased from 12% to 15%
