Teamfight Tactics (TFT) patch 12.3 is going to rework Tome of Traits, introduce multiple balance updates, and more.

TFT set 6.5, Neon Nights mid-set update is just around the corner as we celebrate the Lunar Legend Festival Event. But before the biggest mid-season update, Riot already pushed a b-patch where they nerfed the “overpowered” Imperial trait, and there’s one more patch, patch 12.3, to conclude the Gizmos & Gadgets set.

Teamfight Tactics Lead Designer, Riot Mort, has now previewed the upcoming patch 12.3. Though it will be small compared to previous patches, it will include the Tome of Traits rework, massive Prismatic Crown and Soul augment changes, Runaan’s Hurricane nerfs, some minor augments and traits changes.

Here’s everything you need to know about early TFT Patch 12.3 Notes.

Release Date

TFT Patch 12.3 will go live on Wednesday, February 2, 2022.
