Teamfight Tactics patch 10.23 notes – Divine, Keeper, Hunter, Keeper trait changes

Update – November 11, 2020: Teamfight Tactics patch 10.23 has headed to live! Check out the Teamfight Tactics patch 10.24 notes to see what’s on the way next.

The end of the year approaches, Teamfight Tactics fans. Leaves on the trees are changing colour, the days are growing chillier, and we’re rolling ever closer to the end of the multiplayer game’s 2020 patch cycle. TFT patch 10.22 has finished up on the autobattler’s testing grounds and headed to live, which means it’s time to see what the next update holds.

Teamfight Tactics patch 10.23 has now begun dropping onto the PBE for its own fortnight of testing, and though there’s just a mere handful of balance changes that have popped up so far, they’re worth being aware of to get an idea of what’s on the way very soon. First of which are a couple of trait balance changes – take note, Divine, Hunter, and Keeper Champion fans – there are some buffs, nerfs, and adjustments across these three traits.

As for Champs, Xin Zhao, Ahri, Katarina, Kennen, Kalista, Zed, and Warwick are the only few with any tweaks right now, but you can check out what’s what in the notes below.

As ever, be sure to keep checking back on these notes over the course of the update’s testing cycle, as we’ll surely see more changes appear for tinkering very soon – and we’ll include all you need to know here. For now, let’s take a look at the Teamfight Tactics patch 10.23 notes:
