TFT Set 7 Patch 12.15: Full notes and updates

Tweaks and nudges seek to put the meta in a good spot.

Significant balance changes in Patch 12.15 are looking to hit the Teamfight Tactics Set Seven meta sweet spot as the Mid-Set approaches. 

Slated to go live on Aug. 10, Patch 12.15 is the second-to-last update prior to the release of the TFT Set 7.5 Mid-Set. The patch is smaller than previous Set Seven updates but still contains a number of significant changes that will affect the meta. Damage at Stage or Round 10-1 was increased to 30 for Standard, Hyper Roll, and Double Up to accelerate games that run long. And Shimmerscale Goldmancer’s Staff ability power per gold in Hyper Roll was increased from three to four. 

Patch 12.15 also contains a Tactician surprise, celebrating the final weeks of summer. Players can crack Pool Party eggs for a chance to receive a Mythic Ao Shin or directly purchase a variety of Umbra summer pool variants. 

From Nomsy Fireball damage to Xayah buffs, here are the Patch 12.15 TFT Set Seven notes, according to Riot.
