TFT Patch 13.2 PBE Reveals Upcoming Changes for Hero Augments, Item Reworks

TFT Patch 13.2 PBE reveals a series of adjustments and reworks for a list of champions, Hero Augments and items.


Riot’s Teamfight Tactics team have deployed the upcoming Patch 13.2 changes on PBE servers, giving players a glimpse of the massive balance adjustments. Items receive major backend reworks, and more than a handful of champions become subjected to minor buffs and nerfs. The “backend” rework targets almost every TFT item, with a main focus on removing the bonus attack damage and ability power granted by each item.

Lulu, Lee Sin, Samira, Sejuani and more are targeted with adjustments that both include buffs, nerfs and minor ability changes. This article contains the potential 13.2 balance changes, which are now available for testing on PBE servers.

When Does TFT Patch 13.2 Release?

TFT Patch 13.2 is slated to arrive on live servers later this month on Wednesday, January 27. Players can experience these changes on PBE (Public Beta Environment) servers. TFT Fans do have note that the planned 13.2 changes are subject to change and are not final. As Riot gathers player feedback on PBE testing, we expect to see more balance changes and updates until the patch is locked in for a global release.
The patch cadence might be affected due to a ”social engineering attack” on Riot’s development systems. However, Riot has stated that their TFT team would try their best to get the patch released on schedule.
