Everything you need to know about TeamFight Tactics update 14.4 can be found below, as the full patch notes are now available.

The latest update for the popular auto-battler brings a bunch of 3.5 Revival balance changes, a team Planner update, and much more, including the first test of Vanguard anticheat. Check out everything coming in the update below, and who knows - maybe you'll find yourself winning more matches.

Unless you're on a Chromebook, that is, as Riot is ending support for TFT on the platform.

Brief TFT update 14.4 patch notes

Patch 14.4 isn't a big one, with most of the changes being small alterations to the Dragon's Claw item, Double Up improvements, and a 3.5 Revival balance. There's also a new feature for Team Planner to try out.

Team Planner

Team Planner Snapshot now allows players to quickly import champions from their field directly into Team Planner with the click of a button! Just open up the Team Planner, click Snapshot and confirm!

Windows min spec update

As mentioned in the 14.2 notes, with this patch we are updating our minimum system requirements and will no longer be supporting Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 for all League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics games. To maintain the stability and performance of our game we sometimes need to deprecate support for legacy Operating Systems that aren’t widely used by our players. If you’re still playing on these versions of Windows, please consider updating to continue playing. Please see our min spec support page for more details.

ChromeOS support update

In addition to the Windows minimum spec update, starting in patch 14.5, we’re formally discontinuing support for TFT on ChromeOS, meaning players on this OS will no longer be able to update to a later patch.

Vanguard

While we’ve been discussing Vanguard (Riot’s anti-cheat software already being utilized on VALORANT) arriving globally, after some time testing the diagnostics check on PBE we’ve elected to change the rollout plan. Instead of a Global rollout, we’re going to be releasing in a single region first, the Phillipines, with patch 14.5. This allows us time on live servers to evaluate how Vanguard is functioning and being experienced before making adjustments if required.

Large changes

Items

Dragon’s Claw is reclaiming its rightful place as the item with the most Magic Resist to help you itemize into AP-heavy lobbies. The 10 MR comes at the cost of 1% of the max Health offered, making the item a bit sharper as an MR slam.

  • Dragon’s Claw MR: 55 ⇒ 65
  • Dragon’s Claw Max HP: 10% ⇒ 9%

Radiant items

  • Jak’sho the Protean (Radiant Adaptive Helm) no longer grants both effects regardless of position.
  • Jak’sho the Protean (Radiant Adaptive Helm) grants 1 effect based on starting position. The Fully Adapted Augment will grant both effects.
  • Jak’sho the Protean (Radiant Adaptive Helm) front 2 Row Resist bonus: 60 ⇒ 80
  • Jak’sho the Protean (Radiant Adaptive Helm) front 2 Row Mana On-Hit: 1 ⇒ 2
  • Jak’sho the Protean (Radiant Adaptive Helm) back 2 Row Ability Power bonus: 45 ⇒ 55
  • Jak’sho the Protean (Radiant Adaptive Helm) back 2 Row Mana Per 3s: 15 ⇒ 20

Small changes

Small, like the LARGE CHANGES section.

Traits

Making sure our harder-to-hit trait breakpoints are worth their difficulty.

  • Country 7 Country Dreadsteed ability damage: 200% AD ⇒ 210% AD
  • Rapidfire Attack Speed per stack: 4/8/14% ⇒ 4/9/16%
  • Spellweaver Ability Power for Spellweavers: 20/35/70/120% + 1/2/3/4% per cast ⇒ 20/35/80/130% + 1/2/4/6% per cast

Units

Now that we’ve reworked Karthus, he’s benefiting more from repeat casts to clean up fights, so we’re giving him a Superfan item that’s a bit more adaptive to his current state. NOTE: This change shipped early in our mid-patch update last week.

Poppy was receiving more attack speed than intended from bonus Attack Speed, so we’re fixing that and giving her a small amount of compensation Attack Speed.

  • Lillia max Mana buff: 70/120 ⇒ 60/110
  • Karthus Superfan item: Archangel’s Staff ⇒ Adaptive Helm
  • Poppy Attack Speed: 0.65 ⇒ 0.7
  • Compensation for fixing a bug where Poppy gained more attack speed than intended from bonus attack speed.

Support items

It’s been like this for aegis.

  • Aegis of the Legion tooltip now clarifies that it affects adjacent allies in the same row.

Double Up

The Double Up meta has revolved around whichever team could access a Prismatic trait through high-rolling from their Assist Armories. These high-rolls were too common, so we removed them for now to preserve those prismatic moments as super-hype and powerful ones. While we were working on the Armories we also did some light adjustments to rebalance the offerings that haven't changed values for quite some time.

Assist armories

  • Spatulas and Tome of Traits no longer appear in Assist Armories
  • Removed Artifact Armory from largest Assist Armories
  • Adjusted second Assist Armory odds to have less inflation overall
  • 3 Components for 13g Option ⇒ 2 Components for 9g
  • 2 Training Dummies for 5g Option ⇒ 1 Training Dummy for 4g
  • 1 Tier 4 + 4g for 6g Option ⇒ 5g
  • 1 Tier 5 + 7g for 10g Option ⇒ 9g
  • 1 Thieves Gloves for 7g Option ⇒ 10g
  • 1 Champ Duplicator for 6g Option ⇒ 7g
  • 1 Artifact Anvil for 13g Option ⇒ 12g
  • 2 Completed Items & 1 Reforger for 15g Option ⇒ 20g

3.5 Revival changes

With 14.4 being the final patch to play the 3.5 Revival Mode, we’re sending it off with one more balance pass mostly focused on buffing the most underperforming champions and trait.

Traits

  • Blademaster Proc Chance: 35/35/80% ⇒ 30/30/80%
  • Cybernetic Health: 300/650 ⇒ 350/700
  • Cybernetic Attack Damage: 25/50% ⇒ 30/60%

Units

Jinx carry can now carry more than just your opponents!

  • Jayce MR and Armor: 40 ⇒ 45
  • Jayce Ability Damage: 320/480/800% AP ⇒ 350/525/875% AP
  • Jinx Attack Damage: 70 ⇒ 75
  • Jinx 1st Kill Attack Speed Bonus: 50/75/125% ⇒ 60/85/125%
  • Syndra Mana: 20/70 ⇒ 10/60

Bug fixes

  • BoxBox LP delta: Caitlyn should now more reliably fire all of her shots from her ability even if targets die mid-cast.
  • Heartsteel’s 3-star 5-cost cashout now works even if there aren’t enough units in the pool.
  • Diamond Hands, Gambler’s Blade, Goldmancer’s Staff, and Needlessly Big Gem now correctly state they are Unique items in their tooltips.
  • Crest of Cinders (Radiant Red Buff) now correctly states it wounds for 33% in its tooltip.
  • Poppy no longer gains more attack speed than intended from bonus attack speed.
  • Buried Treasures component orbs are now blue orbs.
  • Superfans will no longer grant their item to a Headliner holding a Radiant Thief’s Gloves after combat.
  • Reforging Blacksmith’s Gloves no longer leaves Artifacts on the unit.
