TFT patch 11.2 is going to be a big one. The Festival of Beasts is finally coming, with the Mid-Set expansion for Set 4 finally launching on the January 21 patch. Players can expect 20 new champions and a bunch of new traits, as well as a new battle pass.

Riot aren’t doing things by halves to kick off 2021 in Teamfight Tactics. The big Mid-Set update for Fates, Festival of Beasts, is set to roll out in patch 11.2 after two weeks of testing on the PBE.

The update features 20 new champions, a bunch of new traits, as well as reworks to the likes of Sharpshooter, Vanguard, Brawler, and more. There’s also new content in the form of a battle pass players can grind. Here’s what to expect on January 21.

Festival of Beasts introduces 20 new champions to TFT Fates

20 favorites from the TFT Fates roster will be departing the convergence, being replaced by a new set of champions to bring in the new year. The Festival of Beasts set has a distinct Chinese New Year theme, featuring the all new Lunar Revel skins as well as deity-themed traits.

There’s too much to list here, but if you’re looking for all the information on the new champions and traits, check out our guide here.

Right from day one, players will have the chance to grind the new battle pass too. With 45 tiers ⁠— the same size as the TFT Fates one ⁠— there’s plenty of rewards on offer for just 1295 RP. You can find full details right here.

Vanguard, Brawler, more reworks currently in testing

Festival of Beasts isn’t just about bringing in new content. Some of the game’s pre-existing traits are getting reworked as well. Vanguard, Brawler, and Sharpshooter are the big three getting changes in the new set.

Vanguard will now give its users Magic Resist in the trait, making it a bit more diverse. Brawlers will also have access to attack damage, which is very handy if you decide to play the newly-released Shyvana.

Sharpshooters also spread their damage more with 2/3/4 ricochets at 2/4/6 instead of 1/2/3. While they do less damage, it means more Teemo blinds, and more mana-generating bounces.

Enlightened has been buffed to give more mana, while Cultist is getting a buff to entice people into going the whole hog and playing 9 Cultist instead of splashing in three. Assassin, Duelist, Elderwood, Keeper, Mage, Mystic, and Spirit have all been changed too.
