A batch of changes are coming to Teamfight Tactics, as patch 11.17 will bring lots of updates for some of the game's strongest units, as the current meta has suffered from “meta thrashing” marked by the rise and fall of many comps with each patch.
As many of the TFT Reckoning World Championship qualifiers have come to an end, this patch will also serve to settle down some of the best and worst traits, as well as making an overhaul to the spatulas.
Patch 11.17: Champion changes
In the latest patches, lots of three-cost units have been dominating around the Convergence, due to their overpowered performances and their great utility, along with a ton of five-cost champions like Heimerdinger, Viego and Teemo.
That said, you can expect all three of them to get a deserved nerf, and even some for Yasuo, Riven and Lee Sin. On the other side, Draven, Gwen and Kayle will get some love by receiving some tweaks around their damage and attack speed stats.

Patch 11.17: Traits and items changes
If you have played TFT recently, you may have noticed the Sentinels have been spammed in almost every game thanks to their offensive stats and versatility around the battlefield, along with the Spellweavers and their massive magic power.
So for this patch, both of these traits are scheduled to receive a necessary rework to balance their power, making them easier to beat and handle. Needless to say, the Abominations will receive some other tweaks for another consecutive patch, this time to buff its Monstrosity.
- Abomination Monstrosity Armor and Magic Resist: 40/50/60 ⇒ 30/45/60
- Abomination Monstrosity Base Attack Damage: 70/80/90 ⇒ 70/80/100

- Legionnaire Attack Speed: 25/65/120/250 ⇒ 25/75/135/250
- Redeemed Armor & MR: 20/35/75 ⇒ 20/35/70
- REWORKED: Sentinel buff now starts on the Sentinel with the most items. If multiple Sentinels have the same number of items, the Sentinel with the highest Attack Speed starts with the buff.
- Sentinel Attack Speed: 25/120/1000% ⇒ 25/90/500%
- Sentinel Shield Value: 200/1000/2000 ⇒ 175/900/2000
- Skirmisher Attack Damage per second: 3/6/15 ⇒ 3/8/16

- Spellweaver base Ability Power: 25/55/100 ⇒ 15/35/70
- Spellweaver Ability Power per stack: 2/5/10 ⇒ 2/4/10
As for items, the Giant Slayer will get an overall buff by making it better in a wider array of cases, making it a brand awareness buff for TFT esports. Lastly, a bunch of defensive and magic objects will be buffed to increase their viability.
- Dvarapala Stoneplate Radiant Bonus max Health Regen: 2% ⇒ 3%
- Gargoyle Stoneplate Armor and Magic Resist per target: 18 ⇒ 20
- Giant Slayer bonus damage Health threshold: 1750 ⇒ 1600
- Giant Slayer Damage Scaling: 10% ⇒ 20%
- Giant Slayer High Damage Scaling: 75% ⇒ 70%

Patch 11.17: Spatulas and general updates
Spatulas are supposed to feel like rare golden moments, so from patch 11.17, this will restore them to their high-roll appeal by no longer counting them as an item component that contributes to the 10 minimum by Raptors, meaning these can only appear in bonus orbs.
Prices for RP in both Teamfight Tactics and League of Legends will be increased on 8th September in Brazil, Latin America, Russia, and Turkey. However, from 23rd August to 8th September, players will receive double Bonus Currency from all RP purchases, so don’t waste this opportunity.
Last but not least, your TFT match history will now be more accessible through a new tab on the client in addition to its usual location from the 'Profile' tab.
Patch 11.17 will be released on 25th August through the League of Legends client. Also, if you are looking for League’s latest patch, you can check it out at the link below.
