Gain a meta advantage through PBE testing changes.

What’s coming to TFT Patch 14.12 that’s important?

Patch 14.12 in TFT Set 11 Inkborn Fables will drop Pengu’s Party onto the live servers on June 12, celebrating the fifth anniversary of the autobattler. The update contains a few significant buffs to smooth out the meta, setting the stage for the third Tactician’s Trials and Cup. One of the best buffs, in my opinion, is a shop odds change that breathes life back into Level Seven. Starting with Patch 14.12, the Level Seven shop odds will become 19/30/40/10/1.

The Duelist trait was nerfed slightly during PBE testing while gaining XP was buffed in the Exalted TFT Set 11 trait as the devs “wanted to make sure Five Exalted was playable early,” according to Mortdog. Trickshot Two was also buffed, which I know will help the trait during the early and mid-game Stages. And for the Yone players, a big buff was applied to the Reaper trait.

A slight tweak was added to Sivir, which I like because it could improve Storyweaver during the mid-game rounds. Kayn and Yone were both buffed in addition to the Reaper trait buff. And Hwei‘s damage was slightly buffed.

You’ll also notice a large number of two-cost Set 11 champions received small buffs, with the changes intended to open up the meta during the early and late-game Stages while potentially improving two-cost reroll builds. All TFT Patch 14.12 champion changes are listed in order from one- to five-cost.

All TFT Patch 14.12 early Augment changes

The Gold Long Shot Sniper trait Augment was slightly nerfed in conjunction with the Sniper trait nerf. I’m excited that Amumu is now a granted champion through the gold Boiling Point Augment. Crown Guarded is a buff I can get behind. Ba-Boom was also buffed, but don’t worry because a bug fix was applied to Kindred.

All TFT Patch 14.12 early item changes

Much like the buff to the Set 11 Augment Ba-Boom, Lich Bane is getting buffed now that the Kindred bug was resolved. The Support item Sprite will likely get a rework at some point, according to Mortdog, but for now, the item has had several levers adjusted on it. And following a bug fix that was affecting More-Morellonomicon and Crest of Cinders, both Radiant items are getting buffed in Patch 14.12.

  • Lich Bane (Artifact): Damage buffed to 200/270/340/410/480
  • Suspicious Trench Coat (Artifact): Health nerfed from 250 to 100
  • Aegis of the Legion (Support): The item will display the affected Hexes during the planning phase as intended
  • Spite (Support): Effects will now properly stack. Attack damage and ability power Reduction were nerfed to 25 percent as was AD/AP Increase from 50 to 40 percent. And the duration was extended to 15 seconds.
  • Crest of Cinders (Radiant): Bonus damage was increased to 10 percent and duration was buffed from five to 30 seconds.
  • More-Morellonomicon (Radiant): Attack speed was increased from 10 to 25 percent.

All TFT Patch 14.12 bug fixes

  • Fortune’s tooltip now correctly states that you gain Luck after every player combat, regardless of win or loss in Hyper Roll.
  • Fortune’s tooltip now specifies that you gain luck only when losing player combats.
  • Removing the items Fishbones or Rapid Firecannon properly removes the range increase as intended.
  • A Behemoth unit’s on-death buff can now apply to allies more than one Hex away.
  • Kindred no longer applies Lich Bane’s damage twice per cast.
  • Kindred no longer benefits from Ba-BOOM!’s damage increase on every cast.
