League of Legends auto-battler spin-off, is set to debut patch 9.16 and Riot have given us an early look at some of the changes that are coming.

Players are eagerly waiting for the next patch to drop in TFT as it comes with a brand-new trait along with four new Champions, raising the roster from 51 to 55.

As per tradition, Riot Games's Mortdog has given us a sneak peek at what to expect in terms of buffs and nerfs.

A major Teamfight Tactics is coming August 14.

Keep in mind that these are subject to change, but for right now this is what we're looking at.

A complete rework for the Hush item and Demon trait is coming. Demons received a nerf with the last major patch but it appears that was too much and they need changes.

Buffs are currently set to come to Ahri, Katarina, Miss Fortune, and Zed, along with buffs to the Infinity Edge, Locket of the Iron Solari, and Redemption items. The locket was originally nerfed through a hotfix that lowered the shield gain to 200, but that will now be changing again.

The last buff is coming to the Wild trait, which is still trying to find its way to remain viable in the late-game of TFT.

Many buffs and nerfs are coming.

As for the nerfs, we're looking at Braum, Cho'Gath, Karthus, Kha'Zix, Statikk Shive, and Ionic Spark all receiving them.

Bug fixes are coming to Nidalee and Guardian Angel. If there was ever a chance for Wild to become relevant, it's definitely with this patch, as Wild, Ahri, and Nidalee are all receiving positive adjustments. 

The patch is currently set to go live on August 14, provided nothing major pops up. Also coming with this patch are new Little Legends so players will have some extra cosmetics to look forward to.

No pricing info has been revealed as of yet so stay tuned for that.
