Teamfight Tactics 10.8 adds Dark Star Xerath andbuffs a number of champions ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!
Teamfight Tactics 10.8 was very generous with buffs and was a little less generous with nerfs. It also adds Dark Star Xerath to the roster.
Lucian, Shaco, and Vel'Koz get to chew on the nerf bullet, alongside Tear of the Goddess. Dark Star Xerath also hopes to add more viable options to the Dark Star origin and Sorcerer class. With his addition, the number of buffs, and few nerfs, it seems the meta is about to be shaken up quite a bit.
Here are the full patch notes:
- Tier 5
- Origin: Dark Star
- Class: Sorcerer
- Health: 750/1350/2430
- Armor: 20
- Attack Damage: 60/108/194
- Attack Speed: 0.9
- Mana: 30/80
- Abyssal Bombardment: Xerath transforms, summoning meteors to strike random foes in place of his normal attacks for 6/8/45 seconds. Meteors deal 300/400/2500 magic damage upon impact and if they kill their target, all adjacent enemies take 150/200/1250 magic damage and are stunned for 1.5 seconds.
New Galaxies Mechanics
- Trade Sector: Players get one free reroll in each round.
- Superdense Galaxy: Upon reaching level 5, players receive a free Force of Nature.
- There's now about a 50% chance of getting a special Galaxy vs. Normal game with Trade Sector and Superdense Galaxies a tad more favored than the others.
Other System Stuff
- We're making it more difficult to purposely loss-streak/open-fort as it will now risk being eliminated before stage 4-7. We still think loss-streaking should still be a strategy and especially a fallback for unlucky early shop rolls or slow compositions, but they should be actively trying to lose by small margins rather than happily full-on open-forting.
