TFT Patch 12.16: the last update before set 7.5
After a 12.14 patch that impacted all champions and a following without impact, the TFT patch 12.16 comes to put a big brake on the power of the Dragons, before putting them back on the front of the stage with set 7.5. Let’s discover together the buffs, nerfs and adjustments to traits, champions, augments and items.
TFT patch 12.16: trait changes
To start the TFT patch 12.16 changes, the features do not undergo major upheavals. We note all the same the buffs of the compositions with a lot of Fighter or Storm champions and the important Yummy damage nerf.

The trait nerves
TFT patch 12.16: champion changes
The champions are the part most impacted by this TFT patch 12.16. If many champions see their statistics improved, including the two Metamorphosis champions, Elise and Shyvana, we mainly remember the nerfs of yasuo and dragons : Ao Shin, Daeja, Sy’fen and Shi Oh Yu.

TFT patch 12.16: changes to Augments
Regarding Augments, no major changes in this TFT patch 12.16. The main changes are to balance buffs and nerfs to champions and traits to prevent them from becoming too powerful. We note all the same that the optimizations which offer gold coins offer even more and that the Cybernetic Augments give less hit points.
TFT patch 12.16: item changes
Finally, the TFT items remain almost unchanged. Only Statikk’s Dagger gets an buff, while Zz’Rot’s Portal, Solar Cloak, and Ion Spark get reduced effects.

The nerves of items
That’s all for the TFT patch 12.16 changes. It’s a safe bet that the impact of the Dragons will be drastically reduced and that we will return to a similar situation as in patch 12.13. Nevertheless, the dragons will make their comeback very soon with thearrival of set 7.5, which should shake up the meta for the benefit of our scaled friends.
