Four New Champions and Hextech Origin Coming to TFT

TFT champs

It will be announced later today on July 31 that TFT would be adding in a new Hextech origin as well as four new champions from League of Legends: Camille, Jayce, Vi and Jinx. All of this will be rumored to be moving onto the PBE immediately and will be set to go live on August 14 with patch 9.16. Here is a quick breakdown of everything that is coming with the new changes:

Hextech Origin

At 2/4 Hextech will disable 2/4 random items on the enemy’s board at the start of combat. All of the following four new heroes have the Hextech origin in addition to their classes.


  • Class: Blademaster
  • Tier: 1
  • Ability: Hextech Ultimatum – Camille roots and damages her auto-attack target and her abilities will focus this new target.

With the new Bladmaster breaking points, Camille adds both good early and late game to the class. With more bulky targets getting buffed, she should help to focus them down quickly and effectively.

  • Class: Shapeshifter
  • Tier: 2
  • Ability: Thundering Blow & Transform Mercury Cannon – Jayce knocks back a target and then changes to ranged, gaining max attack speed for a few initial attacks.

Jayce will be a good early game disruptor and has a very low mana cost (50) for Shapeshifters. This should help that class get off the ground more quickly and disrupt enemy frontlines in the early game.


  • Class: Brawler
  • Tier: 3
  • Ability: Assault and Battery – Vi finds the furthest possible enemy and launches at them, knocking aside all in her path. When she reaches the target, it is knocked up and damage is dealt to it.

Brawlers look to be seriously buffed in the latest patch and this should help even more in that regard. With both Vi and Volibear as 3-cost Brawlers, the class should come on strong in the mid-game.

  • Class: Gunslinger
  • Tier: 4
  • Ability: Get Excited – Jinx gains attack speed after her first elimination and after her second, she begins dealing AoE damage on auto-attacks.

Jinx will be a high risk/reward champ and has carry potential as she gets more and more excited. With her coming into Gunslingers, expect them to get a major buff in the late game.

In addition to all of these exciting changes, TFT has also just been confirmed to be a permanent mode in League of Legends. This was more or less expected, but should still give players solace knowing that this is a game that will be around for the foreseeable future.
