Teamfight Tactics Patch 10.1 overhauls items and replaces Repeating Crossbow, Thornmail, and Phantom Dancer with new additions

It seems like 2020 is going to be a good year for tanks in Teamfight Tactics.

Riot game designer Llord Llama introduced drastic changes to the autobattler’s items in today’s Dev Corner post. Riot wants to address problem items that didn’t quite deliver as intended while helping some items scale along with champions when they level up. And tanky units will finally get some exciting gameplay with new additions slated to debut on the Convergence in 2020.

Here are all the item changes coming to TFT with Patch 10.1.

Last Whisper replaces Repeating Crossbow

  • Last Whisper: When the wearer inflicts a critical hit, the target’s armor is reduced by 90 percent for three seconds.

Repeating Crossbow was intended to have “huge upside” but was quite underwhelming and inefficient. The fact that it couldn’t jump to carries who had three items on them already also limited its use. With the addition of Last Whisper, the entire team will benefit from the armor penetration debuff when taking out beefier champions.
