League of Legends Patch 9.24 unleashes the Soulbound champions and Amumu onto TFT.

The final League of Legends patch of 2019 has arrived and Santa has brought some early presents to the good Tacticians out there. That’s right, the long-awaited Soulbound champions – Senna and Lucian – are finally here. They’re also bringing a friend with them in Amumu in Patch 9.24, along with a few balancing changes!

Riot has also targeted some under-performing Elements like Inferno and Light so that every game isn’t just full of Poison/Predators. They’re also taking a shot at hyper-rolling (also known as Eggrolling) starts by reducing the scaling of some Tier 1 units. All these changes, and more, ahead!


We talked more about the Soulbound Element in our Patch 9.24 preview for TFT, so you can read more about the Element and its two newest champions here. If you’re not inclined to click away, here’s the basic breakdown from the notes.

More from Blog of Legends

"Soulbound (2)The first Soulbound champion to die will instead continue fighting as an untargetable spirit until all other Soulbound champions are dead."

"Senna Tier 2 Origin: Shadow Class: Soulbound Ability: Piercing Darkness. Senna fires a beam through her furthest ally, dealing 50/100/150 magic damage to enemies, and buffing allies’ on-hits for 5 seconds to deal 25/45/75 magic damage from Senna."

"Lucian Tier 4 Origin: Light Class: Soulbound Ability: The Culling. Lucian fires 10 + (2X his attacks per second) bullets in a direction over 4 seconds, each dealing 25/30/50% of his Attack Damage, applying on-hits, and dealing 40/50/100 additional magic damage."


We also discussed Amumu and the impact our Sad Mummy will make on the TFT arena in the above post. Here’s a refresher, though, if you forgot.

"Tier 5 cost Origin: Inferno Class: Warden Ability: Curse of the Sad Mummy – Amumu explodes in an infernal tantrum, dealing 150/250/1337 magic damage to all enemies within 2/3/4 hexes, and stunning them for 2 seconds."

Interface Updates

"– Updated Level Bar Hovering the “Buy XP” tooltip now displays how much gold you need to hit your next level. Now displays your current level and XP progress. Now displays the drop rates for different tiers based on your level. Flipped the locations of the buy XP and refresh buttons. Careful with this one."

These are some pretty cool quality-of-life changes to the TFT interface that allow players to get some much-needed information more easily (such as the percent chance for a particular tier dropping). The biggest change to note is the last one. Don’t get tripped up by accidentally spamming the “re-roll” button because that will now spend all your XP.

Return to Home and Draft Buttons

"– The “Home Button” appears when you’re scouting on other players’ boards or the carousel and can be used to quickly return to your home board. – The “Carousel Button” takes you back to the carousel when looking anywhere else during the shared draft."

If you’re like me, the Carousel is a nightmare because you can’t get back to your home board easily to see what units and items you have. Now, you’ll be able to flip back and forth between the Carousel, your board, and your enemies boards to easily scout what is the best item/champion for you to choose!
