TFT Patch 12.8: The post-Worlds patch

A small patch leading up to the TFT Gimzos and Gadgets Championship

With players using the last Teamfight Tactics patch for the TFT Gizmos and Gadgets World Championship, TFT Patch 12.8 is in a weird, in-between state. That’s because while players will still use 12.7 for upcoming the tournament, 12.8 will be live this on Wednesday.

As a result, there are not many exciting changes because the meta is in a good spot. With that said, there are still plenty of changes players need to be aware of before jumping into games. Here is a breakdown of everything players need to know about TFT Patch 12.8.

Augments

There is only one major change to augments in the TFT 12.8 patch, and the change isn’t even to the augment itself. All the Radiant items that exist only in the Radiant Relic (and sometimes The Golden Egg augment) are pretty balanced. However, one, in particular, was a little underpowered in the eyes of Riot. So, in TFT Patch 12.8, Quickestsilver, the Radiant version of Quicksilver, is getting an attack speed buff. It will now grant 55% attack speed, which is up from 45%.

Traits

The traits section does have a decent amount of changes in it for the TFT Patch 12.8 cycle. The first trait change comes with a double nerf to Mutant, specifically the Cybernetic Enhancement and Voracious Appetite versions. Both of these have been overperforming, so Riot is taking some of the power away. The Cybernetic Enhancement health is being lowered at the five and seven intervals while the Voracious Appetite attack damage and ability power is being lowered at all intervals.

Syndicate, meanwhile, is getting buffed in two ways. The base armor and magic resist is being raised to 55 from 50. Then, the bonus amplification at the Syndicate seven interval is being raised from 50% to 55%.

Chemtech is seeing its health region buffed at all intervals and the Enchanter trait is being buffed when it comes to healing and shielding percentage at the three, four and five intervals. Hextech shields are being buffed at the four, six and eight intervals. And finally, Scrap is getting a shield nerf at the four and six intervals.

Champions

There are no major changes to champions in TFT Patch 12.8. Some of the smaller champion changes fall in the four-cost department, with Kha’Zix getting a nerf to his attack damage scaling at two and three-star. Renata Glasc is getting an adjustment, trading a more powerful attack speed slow for less damage at three-star. And then Vi is getting an overall buff in damage and shielding on her spell at only three-star.
