TFT patch 9.24 highlights: Soulbound, Amumu, nerfs and buffs

Teamfight Tactics (TFT) patch 9.24 has arrived, marking the last major update to the game mode until 2020. Check out everything that’s new!

Teamfight Tactics (TFT) patch 9.24 is one of the biggest updates the game mode has seen since Set 2, Rise of the Elements, went live in November. True to their word, Riot has slowed down on the patches to avoid constantly changing the meta; but, when the patches do release, they bring some pretty big changes.

Patch 9.24, the last major update to TFT for 2019, packs a ton, including the new Soulbound class, three new champions, interface changes and balance adjustments. While the full patch notes can be found here, check out some of the highlights below.

Soulbound

Comprised of two new champions, Senna and Lucian (who has been changed from Set 1), the Soulbound class is definitely one of the more unique ones to come to TFT.  You can learn more about each individual champion here, but the gist of its trait bonus is that the first Soulbound champion to die will instead continue fighting as an untargetable spirit. They will remain on the board until the other Soulbound champions are dead.

Amumu

The third new champion coming to TFT Set 2 is Amumu, the Sad Mummy. Classified as an Inferno/Warden, AMumu will provide the Inferno origin with some much-needed mid- and late-game tanky-ness. His ability, Curse of the Sad Mummy, makes him explode in an infernal tantrum, dealing damage to all enemies within a certain hex radius and stunning them for two seconds.

Interface updates

Patch 9.24 introduces an updated level bar designed with the future of TFT in mind. The biggest thing you’ll have to get used to is the new locations of the buy XP and refresh buttons, which have been flipped. Perhaps the most useful change, however, is that it will now display champion drop rates for different tiers based on your level.
