In an announcement today, the Teamfight Tactics team revealed a brand new mechanic along with confirming some new champions. All of this for Set 4, Fates, shows that they are continuing to push the boundaries of this game and what they are able to do. Here is a quick breakdown of everything that was shown and announced.
New Mechanic: Chosen
Occasionally, in your shop, you will be offered a Chosen champion. These champions are already at 2-star level, so they cost three times their normal 1-star price and come with some extra power:
- One of their traits (origin or class) is “Chosen” and counts as 2 of that trait!
- They also get +200 HP and a unique stat bonus—either 500 HP, 35% spell power, 50 AD, or 25% reduced mana cost. (Tunings subject to change)
For example, if you look at the image above, you can see Garen in your shop as a Chosen. This particular Garen is a Vanguard Chosen (Chosen can pick either trait). If you purchase this Garen, he will immediately be a 2-star, come with 700 extra health, and count as two Vanguards, giving him the Vanguard bonus by himself, and making it easier to hit 4 Vanguard!
Once you buy one Chosen champion, other Chosen champions will no longer appear in your shop. You can only have one at a time! If you sell your Chosen champ, they can start appearing again in your shop. You won’t be able to force a Chosen champion every game. Getting a specific champion is hard enough, but getting that champion with the right Chosen trait will be close to impossible.
New Origin- Warlord
When you activate the Warlord synergy, your Warlords will get some health and spell power for each battle they win and victorious battles they’ve already been in (even if you didn’t have the synergy active at that time). This bonus increases up to a cap of 5.
Warlords have an additional
- (3) 150 HP & 10 SP
- (6) 400 HP & 25 SP
- (9) 600 HP & 50 SP
Each victorious combat they participate in grants additional HP & SP, stacking up to 5 times.
- (3) 30 HP & 3 SP
- (6) 40 HP & 5 SP
- (9) 80 HP & 10 SP
- Xin Zhao
New Origin- Moonlight
Moonlight is a 3-piece trait, and all of the champions are either 1-costs or 2-costs. The trait will upgrade the lowest star level unit by one-star level and in the event of a tie, the champ with the most items gets the star-up. If a player has 3 Moonlight champions and they are all 3-star then they get the first-ever 4-star unit in TFT history.
New Origin- Cultist
Most champions in the game with 8. These champions are used to summon Demon Lord Galio.
- (3): Tyrant Galio
- (6): Demon Lord Galio
- (9): Supreme Overlord Galio
- Twisted Fate
