Riot Games has been very hands-on with Teamfight Tactics: Galaxies on the Public Beta Environment server. The new set, which went live on the PBE just a week ago, has introduced a couple of units and synergies that still haven't found a sweet spot yet. Today TFT developer Stephen "Mortdog" Mortimer shared what the third PBE patch holds for TFT: Galaxies.

 

Most affected by the patch notes are two-cost champions. According to Mortdog, acquiring a 3-star level two champion is very easy, which is why their spells are toned down. Ahri, Annie, Kai'Sa, Lucian, Mordekaiser, Rakan, Shen, and Sona all see their spells reduced in power at their third level. Another big nerf hits Caitlyn, whose level 3 spell will no longer deal 3000 damage, but just 1800.

 

It's not just nerfs that are coming to the PBE though. Whereas the cheaper units are being toned down, some higher-cost champions see an increase in power. Vel'Koz's spell damage as a 1-star and 2-star is increased by 100 on both levels. Aurelion Sol's spell is buffed too and now deals 25 more damage on level 1 as well as level 2.

 

The changes are slated to go live today at 12 pm PST.
