Teamfight Tactics: complete skills guide (ults)!

Know the effects of all skills in Teamfight Tactics (TFT)! Knowing in depth the characteristics of each champion is essential in TFT. Knowing which ones can heal, which ones have area damage, which ones have crowd control, etc., is absolutely necessary to position each one in the best possible way. For this reason, we have put together a complete guide with all the ults in the game. The skills were gathered into 5 categories defined by their main effect. Thus, the ult will be in the category of instant damage if that is its main characteristic, even if it causes a weak secondary CC.

  • Instant damage skills
  • Damage skills over time
  • Crowd control (CC) skills
  • Support and defense skills
  • Passive skills
