TFT Patch 12.12b: Full Patch Notes Detailed

Courtesy of Riot Games

TFT Patch 12.12b is considerably bigger than a normal b-patch with three weeks between the release of Patch 12.13 instead of the usual two. These changes are toning down champions that were just too strong as a result of the patch, as well as giving much-needed buffs to weaker champions.

Below, we've listed out the full patch notes for TFT Patch 12.12b.

Augments

No adjustments to augments this patch. Instead, Astral Soul and Dragonmancer Heart have been removed due to the augments being too weak and too strong respectively.
