TFT patch 12.23: what's new in set 8

TFT patch 12.23: what's new in set 8

After two weeks on the PBE, Set 8 finally arrives on the live servers with TFT patch 12.23. To help you understand what's new in Set 8, let's take a look at the changes to the game system, the new traits and champions, and the arrival of the Hero Augments that will shake up the TFT meta.

TFT set 8 release with the patch 12.23

The TFT patch 12.23, which marks the release of the set 8, brings many new features, such as the Hero Augments which we detail in our TFT set 8 Augments tier list. These optimizations, specific to each champion, can strengthen them personally or bring various bonuses to the whole team.

In total, there are 118 hero Augments, in addition to the 100 classic optimizations and 63 Traits Augments to further diversify the playable compositions and make the games unique.

The Precious Dragon leaves TFT with patch 12.23, but the developers have decided to keep the item choices available to players with the Item Anvils. Item anvils, which appear in Stage 4-7, 5-7, and 6-7, give you a choice of three items. In rare cases, item anvils may offer Ornn items or be accompanied by a Tome of Traits.

The same goes for the Star Guardian trait, which is no longer limited to Soraka and becomes a synergy that grants a mana bonus of up to 9 champions.

That's it for this TFT patch 12.23 and the new traits of set 8. On the PBE, several champions already stand out, like Miss Fortune with the Anima Squad comp or Jax in Mecha: Prime. To find out how to play with these and other champions, check out our TFT Set 8 comps tier list. Nevertheless, the next patches might be quite important since many adjustments will be necessary before the TFT set 8 meta finds its balance.
