After a patch 12.18 to roughly correct the set 7.5 arrival, Riot Games refines the meta balancing with the TFT patch 12.19. Let's discover all the changes of this update with many buffs, nerfs and adjustments on champions, traits, augments and items. Once again, dragons are the focus of these changes, both for units and traits.
