TFT Set 5.5 Legionnaire trait, Lucian, and Nocturne changes revealed in 11.16 Patch Rundown

Riot Games game design director Stephen “Mortdog” Mortimer and Riot Kent revealed a number of “big” champion and Radiant item changes in the upcoming Teamfight Tactics Patch 11.16 during today’s Patch Rundown.

Patch 11.16, the first patch since Reckoning: Dawn of Heroes Set 5.5 launched, is scheduled to bring a major rework to the Legionnaire trait and a number of tweaks to Radiant items. Legionnaire has “been a non-existent trait,” according to Mortdog, prompting a rework with Omnivamp that will benefit Yasuo, Riven, and Kayle. Kalista will still heal and hit for major damage with her spear, according to Kent. 

Several Radiant items will also see adjustments, toning down overpowered items while buffing some underperformers. Vanilla Sunfire Cape and Redemption will receive several minor changes, but Quicksilver is slated to get a major boost in CC immunity duration from 12 to 15 seconds.
