The mid-set or Set 9.5 in Teamfight Tactics (TFT) is called Runeterra Reforged: Horizonbound. This last mid-set was released on 13th September along with Patch 13.18. Set 9.5 includes six new items, three adjusted items, a new support item class, an update to Artifact Items (that was previously called Ornn Forge Items), and many more.
