TFT patch 12.7 is the decisive update of Set 6 ⁠— with the World Championship set to be played on this patch, Riot isn’t trying to rock the boat too much. A dozen champions are receiving small changes, but Twinshot is being hit the hardest: here’s the full patch notes.

The TFT Gizmos & Gadgets World Championship is nearing, and so too the end of Set 6. However, with balance in a healthy spot following the mega 12.5 and 12.6 updates, TFT patch 12.7 is decidedly thin.

There’s still a couple of things on Riot’s radar: Twinshots being priority number one. The reroll-centric comp has been too flexible, and will be getting a downgrade.

However, that’s not all, with a handful of niche carries also getting a bit of assistance to perhaps crack into the meta again like Ashe, Seraphine, and Zeri. Plus, the usual assortment of Augment changes are coming too.

Here’s what you need to know about TFT patch 12.7.

What’s changing in TFT patch 12.7?

Major Twinshot nerfs gut popular comp

In case the patch 12.6 and b-side changes weren’t enough, Twinshot is getting nerfed yet again in TFT patch 12.7. The reroll comp ⁠— which could be played with innumerable carries ⁠— was one of the most flexible picks of the last two patches.

However, while specific champions have been spared from the nerfs, the trait and some of its Augments have not.

Gangplank was one of the more popular Twinshot carries alongside Lucian.

4 and 5 Twinshot buffs are being toned down, giving less AD across the board. Sharpshooter ⁠— which boosted the comp’s DPS significantly ⁠— is now a Prismatic Augment and didn’t receive any buffs, making it a very situational pick.

Hextech also suffered a similar fate, with the Hextech Unity and Crest Augments being removed, while Hextech Heart was bumped up to Gold tier.

These are the only major nerfs in the update though, with Riot focusing on fine tuning some edge-case carries to even out the meta even more.

Ashe, Seraphine, Zeri headline buffs list

There’s a smattering of buffs in TFT patch 12.7, but they’re by no means revolutionary. Carries Ashe, Seraphine, and Zeri headline the shortlist, each with small but impactful changes.

Ashe has gotten some of her Volley AD ratio back after big reroll nerfs earlier in the Set. Seraphine’s mana has also been cut, making her a bit better as a carry. Finally, a slight Zeri attack speed buff will let her charge up Lightning Crash a bit quicker, reducing downtime.

Seraphine was a popular carry in Set 6, but didn’t carry over to Neon Nights. New buffs might make her more appealing.

Outside of these units, Ahri, Caitlyn, Cho’Gath, Galio, Kha’Zix, Tryndamere and Senna are getting buffs. This is on top of the Scholar and Yordle trait, making them more tempting to chase with bigger late-game bonuses.

A number of Augment changes have also been made.
