We're less than a week away from the release of TFT: Remix Rumble's Patch 14.2. This past week, Gameplay Director Stephen Mortimer, aka Mortdog, has started to share some of the changes the upcoming patch will bring.

Mortdog acknowledges Patch 14.2 will be a relatively small patch, but that's not to say there aren't some significant changes. Three champions are getting major reworks with the patch: Kayle, Karthus and Urgot.

Karthus is said to be getting the biggest change — a nerf to his initial damage. We highlighted his changes with Patch 14.2 here, but below you can read more about the reworks to Kayle and Urgot.

TFT Patch 14.2: Kayle's "shape is changing"

Looking to improve Kayle's late game impact, Riot is changing changing Kayle's shape. Currently, Kayle has to cast, and is then stuck in the transformed state for five seconds before she can do her finale.

With the new patch, she will always be in the transformed state with empowered autos, and her 120 mana spell will now be the finale she has now. The goal with these chanegs is to make her easier to use, scale better and act as a possible item holder for Karthus.

TFT Patch 14.2: Urgot will no longer get stuck on tanks

Urgot is pretty strong early on in the game. But if he encounters a tank, especially in the late game, his power drops off significantly. Riot is looking to buff his effectiveness against tanks, but he'll have to sacrifice some power early on to do so.

With this patch, Urgot's damage will go down a little, nerfing his AOE and Stage 2 power. However, if he hits a single target, it will be 50% stronger. If you can position Urgot so that he targets the tank solely, he should be able to deal with it now.

Patch 14.2 will go live in TFT on January 24, 2024.
