The next cycle for Teamfight Tactics is set to bring a lot of excitement now that new traits and champions will be added to the game, as players will see the addition of 58 units as part of the new Gizmos and Gadgets set.
As the Hextech technology has taken over the Convergence, many of these will be brought right from the lands of Piltover and Zaun, while some others will appear from unknown portals, dark realms, and even from some of Runeterra’s most heroic places.
That said, let’s take a look at every trait and champion that will appear as part of the Set 6 of Teamfight Tactics: Gizmos and Gadgets.
Academy champions will gain bonus Attack Damage and Ability Power that’s amplified each time an ally casts an ability.
- Garen: Tier 1 Protector
- Graves: Tier 1 Twinshot
- Katarina: Tier 2 Assassin
- Leona: Tier 3 Bodyguard
- Lux: Tier 4 Arcanist
- Yone: Tier 4 Challenger
- Yuumi: Tier 5 Cuddy and Scholar
These tormented experiments and demented experimenters are dead set on setting your opponents health bar to 0. Upon dropping below a health threshold, they will kick things into overdrive, gaining damage reduction, Attack Speed, and regenerating a percentage of their maximum Health each second.
As you add more Chemtech champions to your army your trait breakpoints, the duration of this effect will increase.
- Singed: Tier 1 Innovator
- Twitch: Tier 1 Assassin
- Warwick: Tier 2 Challenger
- Lissandra: Tier 3 Scholar
- Zac: Tier 3 Bruiser
- Urgot: Tier 4 Twinshot
- Dr Mundo: Tier 4 Mutant and Bruiser
- Viktor: Tier 5 Arcanist
Colossus champions are bigger, more powerful, and take up two slots in your army.
Having just one of them will make it so all colossus are immune to crowd control effects, but adding another big guy will also grant them significant damage reduction.
- Cho’Gath: Tier 3 Mutant and Bruiser
- Sion: Tier 4 Imperial and Protector
- Galio: Tier 5 Socialite and Bodyguard
Innovators build a mechanical companion to join them in battle.
At 3 Innovators, you’ll get a Mechanical Scarab that projects a barrier on itself and an ally, taunting nearby enemies in the process. At 5 Innovators, you’ll get a Mechanical Bear whose spells causes it to surge with Hextech power, granting itself and allies bonus Attack Speed.
The final form comes at 7 Innovators and it’s a Mechanical Dragon whose roar fears enemies and encourages allies to deal extra damage.
- Singed: Tier 1 Chemtech
- Ezreal: Tier 1 Scrap
- Zilean: Tier 2 Clockwork
- Heimerdinger: Tier 3 Yordle and Scholar
- Seraphine: Tier 4 Socialite
- Jayce: Tier 5 Enforcer and Transformer
One of our most ambitious traits yet, Mutants will adapt and change every game as these will randomly take one of seven forms for the entirety of the game.
During the same game, all players will play with the same activated Mutant trait. Each of these traits will activate at 3 Mutants and evolve to improved versions at 5.
- Kassadin: Tier 1 Protector
- Kog’Maw: Tier 2 Sniper and Twinshot
- Cho’Gath: Tier 3 Colossus and Bruiser
- Malzahar: Tier 3 Arcanist
- Dr Mundo: Tier 4 Chemtech and Bruiser
- Kai’Sa: Tier 5 Challenger
Running 3 Mercenaries will give you a treasure chest on your bench that opens when you win against a player. At the start of each planning phase you’ll roll two dice to add more and more loot to your chest.
The longer you go without opening the chest, the luckier the dice will get. If you hit 5 Mercenaries, the dice will get even luckier, and by hitting 7 Mercenaries, all winning combats will give you a third golden die with exclusive rewards.
- Illaoi: Tier 1 Bruiser
- Quinn: Tier 2 Challenger
- Gangplank: Tier 3 Twinshot
- Miss Fortune: Tier 3 Sniper
- Tahm Kench: Tier 5 Glutton and Bruiser
At the start of combat, a number of incomplete item components scaling with trait breakpoints on Scrap champions will turn into ephemeral full items for that combat.
Scrap champions also gain a health shield at the start of combat that grows with each item equipped in your army.
- Ezreal: Tier 1 Innovator
- Ziggs: Tier 1 Yordle and Arcanist
- Blitzcrank: Tier 2 Protector and Bodyguard
- Trundle: Tier 2 Bruiser
- Ekko: Tier 3 Assassin
- Janna: Tier 4 Enchanter and Scholar
- Jinx: Tier 5 Sister and Twinshot
A spotlight will be revealed on the battlefield.
Based on the amount of Socialite units on your comp, the champ standing in the spotlight will gain these unique bonuses: (1) +15% Bonus Damage, (2) +5 mana regen per second, (3) +20% Omnivamp
- Taric: Tier 3 Enchanter
- Seraphine: Tier 4 Innovator
- Galio: Tier 5 Colossus and Bodyguard
At 3 Yordles, you’ll get a random free Yordle on your bench after each player combat. And at 6 Yordles, Yordle mana costs will be significantly reduced.
- Poppy: Tier 1 Bodyguard
- Ziggs: Tier 1 Scrap and Arcanist
- Tristana: Tier 2 Sniper
- Lulu: Tier 2 Enchanter
- Heimerdinger: Tier 3 Scholar and Innovator
- Vex: Tier 3 Arcanist
And that’s all, these are all champions and traits added as part of the new TFT set: Gizmos and Gadgets. Nonetheless, we’ll also have to say goodbye to all those powerful units we found during the Reckoning Set, while most of them will be remembered due to their impact on the metagame.
The new era of Teamfight Tactics will arrive with the launch of Gizmos and Gadgets on League’s patch 11.22, this 3rd November.
