The mid-patch update for 12.6 included most of the big nerfs Riot wanted to bring to TFT ahead of 12.7. And while Patch 12.7 isn't lacking in nerfs, we did get some buffs that will hopefully bring some interesting changes to the meta in time for TFT Worlds. This continues Riot's attempts to buff weaker traits and augments so that they have a chance to shine on the big stage.
Top 3 Buffs in TFT Patch 12.7
1. Scholar Mana Buff
The Scholar trait is filled with interesting champions who have the potential to be powerhouses (especially Renata) and are a great addition to teams for the bit of mana they give. This patch has buffed the amount of mana per 2 seconds scholars give, making running scholars on their own a bit more feasible. The amount of mana they grant has been increased from 5/10/20 to 5/12/25.
2. Yordle Mana Reduction
Running Yordles relies heavily on luck, as you can't choose what yordle will spawn each round, and you'll have to make sure to have some extra gold on hand to be able to buy any that show up in the shop. With how difficult they can be to run sometimes, the buff on their mana reduction seems justified. When you reach 6 Yordle, all Yordles will receive a 30% reduction in mana cost to cast their abilities, a nice change from the 25% mana reduction they had previously.

3. Ashe Volley Attack Damage
Alongside snipers like Miss Fortune and Jhin (especially after his mana buff in the mid-patch update of 12.6), Ashe can fall a bit to the wayside. This patch introduces a buff to Volley attack damage ratio, increasing it from 100% to 110%. This will hopefully help Ashe scale her attack damage, and give her greater potential to carry.
