Riot announced Teamfight Tactics Patch 12.1 as their first patch of the year. Here's the full list of nerfs in Patch 12.1.

Riot has released Patch 12.1 fresh into the new year to combat some of the unbalanced changes from the previous patch.

Many of the nerfs in this patch are focused on five-cost champions. Specifically Galio, Tahm Kench and Kai'Sa.

TFT Patch 12.1: Full List of Nerfs

Galio's Slam Bonus Damage has decreased from 80/125/1999 to 70/100/1999. Kai'Sa health has decreased from 900 to 850. Her mana has changed from 90/150 to 75/150 and her Spell Damage per Missile went from 80/100/180 to 70/90/180. Tahm Kench's Damage Reduction decreased from 40% to 30%.

Considering the increase in power and popularity for Chemtech, this nerf will make Chemtech more balanced and slightly less powerful. Chemtech Damage Reduction decreases from 25% to 20% and Chemtech Attack Speed decreases from 20/50/80/125% to 15/50/90/135%.

Some items in the game have been nerfed, such as the popular Guardian Angel. Guardian Angel health on revive decreased from 400 to 250, Morellonomicon's True Damage burn decreased from 2.5% a second to 2% a second.
