Teamfight Tactics (TFT) is Riot's version of Auto Chess set in the League of Legends universe. For this reason, the game features champions already known to LoL lovers, who in this new game arrive with two main characteristics: origin and class. The origin and class of TFT heroes are the ways in which players obtain synergy bonuses when completing a specific number of characters from the same origin or class. Therefore, knowing these characteristics of each champion well is one of the first steps to playing well. The list below is divided into categories. First category champions are those that cost 1 Gold, second category champions cost 2 Gold and so on. That way you can get a better idea of which combinations are most likely at each stage of the game.

Summary of changes for 10/22 (Patch 9.21)

  • Buffs : Patrolmen, Sorcerers, Brand and Varus.
  • Nerfs : Guardians, Hextech, Draven, Lissandra and Pantheon.
