Set 2 is closing in on its end in Teamfight Tactics. As the developers announced in January, Set 3 will go live somewhere around mid-March. New champions, new traits and origins and probably new items will flood the auto battler. However, until then, the development team is mostly focused on tweaking Set 2 minimally. Keep things in check, as they say, and hope the meta stays fresh.
In patch 10.4, which goes live later this week, Riot Games is making very few adjustments. The TFT community is happy with the changes patch 10.3 introduced—the removal of the Spatula, in particular, has been well-received. Yet a couple of champions will get a pretty sweet buff. Lucian's spell Attack Damage ratio is greatly upgraded for his level one and level two: it's increased from 30%/40%/50% to a flat 50% across all levels. Singed's level one also sees a power upgrade: the spell damage is increased from 150 to 225.
Crystals, on the other hand, are being toned down. The trait itself is receiving a minor tweak, with the two-Crystal synergy capping incoming damage at 110 instead of 100. However, combined with the nerfs to Taric—his immunity duration is decreased by 0.5 seconds on his first two levels—it looks like Crystals will drop a few tiers down the tier list.

Storyteller by heart. If something is competitive, I am interested in it.
