TFT Neon Nights has hit the PBE today and should officially drop on patch 12.4.

If you were a player that spams Academy Lux compositions, like me, those days are soon to end!

These changes will see over 20 new units, multiple champion trait swaps and much more.

Not only is Zeri the newest champion on the rift at the moment but will also be a five cost unit in TFT. Zeri will join the Debonair and Sniper traits. Here is the complete rundown on what players can expect on Zeri in 12.4

  • Passive - Zeri's basic attacks fire a slew of bullets in her enemy's direction, each dealing a small percentage of her attack damage as physical damage and extra bonus magic damage to the first unit hit.
  • Ability - Zeri vaults to her enemy and discharges a nova of electricity, dealing magic damage to nearby enemies and increasing their mana costs before dashing back to her original position. For the next few seconds, her attacks become electrified and pierce.
  • VIP bonus - When Zeri is chosen as your VIP from the shop, after she casts her Lightning Nova her attacks become electrified and pierce for the rest of combat.

TFT Neon Lights hits the PBE servers today, February 1. Neon Lights will hit the live servers early morning on February 16 with patch 12.4.
