TFT Changes

Pantheon is now testing in TFT on the PBE!
  • Tier 5
  • Dragon
  • Guardian
  • Grand Starfall: "Pantheon leaps into the air and then crashes down on the furthest enemy, stunning it and dealing % max health damage to everything on the way."

New Color Control and Screen Shake Options 

Here's Riot Reinboom with details on new options testing on the PBE:
A few new options will be showing up in your options menu on PBE soon, shipping with 9.17 if all goes well. These options can all be found under ‘Video’. 
The options:

  • Enable Screen Shake (defaults to on)
    • Turning this off will remove the screen shake caused by, for example, Pulsefire Ezreal's recall or Ornn's ultimate. 
  • Color Level, Gamma, Brightness, and Contrast (all of these are sliders)
    • These options control the overall appearance of the game except for the UI, allowing you to either diminish or highlight visual differences in game quickly.
    • These options are pretty standard fare in many games and should all work similarly to what you're used to.
Options like this often get overlooked in many games, but for many players who need them they can be vital to making their gaming experience comfortable or even possible. We're interested in adding more options like this in the future if these first few improve folks' game experiences in the way we're expecting. 
Please try these new settings out in your PBE games, let us know what you think, and what other options we should explore!"


  • Elderwood Ahri chroma assets added:
  • Chuseok summoner icons names changed: Full Harvest Nasus Icon and Songpyeon Poro Icon

Context & Notes

1) Riot Scruffy tweeted a tentative Garen changelist that is now testing on the PBE:
"CatchesAxes is a Garen enthusiast and has been working on some changes. 
Goals are:
-Remove villainy passive to push power back into core pattern
-Move to a more early game lane bully power curve
-Add AS scaling to open up more builds  
Current changes below coming to PBE soon"
2) Riot Mort provided an experimental changelist for TFT now testing on the PBE:
"HIGHLY EXPERIMENTAL - Going to be putting the following change list on PBE. Incredibly subject to change, but want to get some player feels on it. If you play PBE, let me know what you think."
