As soon as Riot Games revealed the Set 2 of Teamfight Tactics during their League of Legends 10-year anniversary stream, we knew it will include a lot of content and changes. The TFT team has been hinting for a while that the future for TFT will change, and sets of champions will rotate, but introducing Rise of the Elements is definitely a lot more than we expected.
With patch 9.22, which will go live on November 6 (and it is currently in PBE for testing), we will get to see around 50 new champions, new origins and classes, and even a different board!
TFT Set 2 Origins and Classes
Considering the update will be massive, let’s take a look at the new origins and classes. Thanks to a Tweet from Riot Mort (Lead Designer of Teamfight Tactics), we have some great cheat sheets of all the classes, origins, new champions, and some new items built from spatulas:
Origins are now called Elements, and aside from the new classes, you will notice that there are still a few from the first set, such as Assassin, Blademaster and Ranger.
TFT Set 2 Board
The image below shows not only the new items formed from Spatulas but also some icons on the left, with new hexes – called Elemental Hex.
This addition is quite unique, as it directly affects each player’s board with the match’s specific element. A hex will show up on each player’s board (in the same spot) and players must place a champion on it to gain different buffs.
But that’s not all! At stage 3-1, a second Elemental Hex will show up in the same spot for all players’ boards. Players can use the second Elemental Hex to buff a second champion but must be aware that the buff from the hex needs a free item slot, meaning only champions with a maximum of two items can receive that buff.
We know it is a lot to sink in, but we have at least got you covered with the basics. As a bonus, here is the complete list of champions and their classes and elemental powers.
