We've got all the latest changes in TFT right here with the TFT update 14.3 patch notes. This patch includes a variety of balance changes for both Set 10 and 3.5 Revival.

This isn't a huge patch, but it's got plenty to read about if you're an avid TFT player. From new cosmetics to 3.5 balance changes, there's some substantial stuff in this patch for the game.

This patch is a pretty small one as far as big gameplay updates, but it still has plenty of balance changes for units and traits, among other aspects of the game.

The main news is that Set 3.5 Revival is being extended by an additional patch, and it has some balance changes of its own in this update.

There's also a new Chibi, Porcelain Lux, which will be available for this patch only. So if that sounds like something you want to add to your collection, you'd better get rolling soon. All Lunar Festival cosmetics will be gone by the end of this patch!

LUNAR FESTIVAL EVENT AND COSMETICS

14.3 marks the last patch of the Lunar Festival event, but while the event is leaving, the 3.5 Revival game mode will be staying until the conclusion of patch 14.4! Along with the event's departure, event-specific cosmetics will also be leaving. Lunar Festival event cosmetics (e.g. Chibi Porcelain Lux, Golden Dragon Skyscraper, and more) deactivate on Feb 22nd at 11AM PT, just after the conclusion of the event with the end of patch 14.03 (Feb 20th).

The 3.5 revival game mode has been extended by an additional patch. Riot has seen more interest in the game mode than expected, and is introducing a balance patch for the mode to keep people hooked.

CHIBI PORCELAIN LUX

Chibi Porcelain Lux enters Treasure Realms this patch and leaves alongside the rest of the Lunar Festival content on the final day of the patch.
