Teamfight Tactics patch 10.12 notes – Mid-set update, new Champions, Traits, more

Teamfight Tactics is on the way to its twelfth patch of the year and, oh boy, does it look like it’s going to be a meaty one. TFT patch 10.12 has landed on the autobattler’s public beta environment for a round of trials and testing  – and it’s brought with it the Galaxies mid-set update! Let’s take a look.

TFT lead designer Stephen ‘Mortdog’ Mortimer has posted a set of PBE notes on the multiplayer game’s Discord, noting on Twitter this is because it’s “a bigger than normal launch”. Gulp. But, we’ve included them in full for you to take a gander at below. Naturally, with the mid-set update there’s plenty of big news, but highlights include Champions heading in and out of the game: various Valkyrie, Void, and “other” fighters are saying goodbye, while new some Astro, Battlecast, and Paragon trait Champs are being ushered in.

There’s also a raft of Champion, trait, and item balance changes to check out, along with various bug fixes and system changes – all of which you can read about below. Oh, and some new Little Legends – they’re adorable.

Let’s take a look at what’s in store for TFT patch 10.12 (via Riot Games on Discord)!

Cassiopeia (Battlecast/Mystic)
Cassiopeia launches her fangs at the nearest unpoisoned enemy, causing them to take 700/1500/3000 damage over 12 seconds, and reducing the effectiveness of shields used on them by 50%.

Viktor (Battlecast/Sorcerer)
Viktor burns a path between the two enemies most distant from one another, initially dealing 15%/20%/80% max Health magic damage, then one second later dealing 250/400/1500 magic damage in an explosion along the same path.

Urgot (Battlecast/Protector)

Other

Riven (Chrono/Blademaster)
Riven dashes and shields herself for 250/400/1000, then slashes forward dealing 100/150/450 magic damage. Every third cast, Riven leaps into the air and launches a wave of energy that deals 300/500/1500 magic damage.

Vayne (Cybernetic/Sniper)
Vayne focuses for 10 seconds, tumbling away from her target immediately and every third attack thereafter. Vayne is invisible while tumbling, and attacks after tumbling deal 175/200/225% of her Attack Damage. Base AD: 60 >>> 60. AS: 0.8 >>> 0.85.
