From new Yone Chibis to changes to player damage, this patch has plenty of new things to get stuck into. So without further ado, here are all the changes in this new patch. And if you want to see when new patches will be released, we've got a patch notes schedule here.

There are some significant systems changes in this update, including changes to player damage, streaks and shop roll odds.

Lots of 4-cost units have been buffed in this patch to stop them falling behind in the meta. Yone is also getting two new Chibis, including a regular variant and a Spirit Blossom variant.

Additionally, Vanguard is being rolled out on the Philippines server before being turned on for other servers for patch 14.9.

New Tacticians, System Updates & more

Tacticians

Chibi Yone and Chibi Spirit Blossom Yone

Chibi Yone can be purchased directly from the store for 1900 RP and comes with his signature Boom, Fated Seal, which you can use to seal your fate in top eight (guaranteed).

Chibi Spirit Blossom Yone is available via Treasure Realms as Star Content until patch 14.10 brings something new! Spirit Blossom Yone will come with his own finisher that’ll have your foe not even know they’re already dead—that is, until the finisher ends, revealing the grey screen of defeat.
