Teamfight Tactics Champions

Champion known as Garen OriginalSquare Garen being controlled by a Little Legend.

Champions are units in the Teamfight Tactics game mode that fight in arenas to protect the Little Legend. Unlike Champions in League of Legends, these units are not directly controllable once placed on the battlefield. They are characters taken directly from the League of Legends intellectual property and can take appearances from the Runeterra Map profileicon Runeterra Prime universe, as well as from a wide variety of alternate universes depending on the current playable set. Players can buy, sell, reposition, and equip items on champions as well as upgrade champions depending on certain requirements of certain champion.

Gameplay

Teamfight Tactics champion star level

Champion Star Level

  • All units have 550 movement speed.
  • Melee champions now move slightly earlier at the start of combat than ranged champions.
  • If a champion is in the attack range of their target, and the target moves out of range, the attacker only chases their target for 1 hex before switching to the closest enemy.
  • Most champions uses mana as a charge up system for their Special Ability. Mana is generated by basic attacking and taking damage.
    • All units generate 10 Mana per attack, and taking damage generates up to 42.5 Mana, depending on the pre-mitigated damage. 
    • Champions with mana automatically use their Special Abilities when their mana bar is full.
    • Some champions have no mana. Their Special Ability usually is a modifier to their basic attacks that is always active.
    • Almost all Special Abilities deal magic damage, with some exceptions.
  • Three 1-star champions can be combined to create a stronger 2-star champion. Three 2-star champions can be combined to create an even stronger 3-star champion.
    • 2 Star2-star and 3 Star3-star champions have respectively 180% and 324% of the maximum health and attack damage of the 1 Star1-star version of the champion. The ability also becomes stronger by an amount specific to the champion.
    • Champions combine automatically when you have three of the same. The combined champion will automatically appear on your battlefield if one of the original champions is already deployed.
  • Champions have a tier that represents their rarity that ranges from 1 to 7 (Tier 1, Standard Skin Tier 2, Epic Skin Tier 3, Hextech Skin Tier 4, Ultimate Skin Tier 5, China Skin Tier 9 Tier 7).
  • Most champions have one origin and one class, with a few exceptions. Satisfying the origin or class conditions grants bonus effects.

  • Defeated monsters sometimes drop loot-boxes that contain various rewards for the Little Legends or item that can be equipped onr a champion.
  • Champions can hold up to 3 items at the same time.
  • If two items are used on the same champion, they are combined into a stronger item, granting various effects based on the combination.
  • If a champion with items is sold, the items returns to the summoner's inventory.

  • The summoner can spend Gold 2 gold to reroll the pool.
  • The champion store resets with every round for free.
    • The champion store can be locked to keep the current champions in the store.

Stats and Mechanics

  • Health
    • Champions are removed from combat when their health reaches 0. With exception:
    • Slain champions will respawn next round.
    • Health is shown above a unit's heads as a green bar that is separated once for every 300 health the unit has.
  • Basic attacks - Each champion has a basic attack. Basic attacks deal physical damage.
    • Attack damage is the amount of damage a champion will do with each basic attack.
    • Attack speed is measured in attacks per second. All attack speed increases are percentage-based, and affect each champion based on their base attack speed. Attack speed slows are based on total attack speed. Attack speed is capped at 5.0 attacks per second.
    • Attack range is measured in hexes.
    • 1 Attack range means a champion can only attack enemies in adjacent hexes.
    • Armor reduces the damage taken from physical damage. Armor works in exactly the same as it works in the main game, using this formula:

    • Basic attacks have a chance to critically strike to deal 50% bonus damage, determined by critical strike chance. Every champion starts with 25% critical strike chance. The bonus damage is further increased by critical strike damage.
  • Special Ability - Each champion has one ability. Active abilities require mana to cast, and automatically cast when a champion reaches maximum mana. Special abilities deal magic damage, with the exceptions of attack-modifiers.
    • Mana is generated by basic attacking and taking damage. Basic attacks generate mana on-attack, even if the triggering attack misses or is parried. Both abilities and basic attacks cause the damaged champion to generate mana.
    • Ability power increases the power of a champion's Special Ability by a percentage. Ability power affects magic damage, true damage, shielding and healing.
    • Magic resistance reduces the damage taken from magic damage. Magic Resistance works in exactly the same as it works in the main game, using this formula:
      $ \pagecolor{Black}\color{White}{\rm Damage\ multiplier}= {100 \over 100+{\it MR}} $
  • Star-level

Resources

The two main resources of any champion is health and mana.

Health

  • A champion begins combat with full health. If health is reduced to 0, the champion is removed from the current round. However, if equipped with Guardian Angel item Guardian Angel, the champion will be revived after its first death.
  • A champion can be healed by items like Bloodthirster item Bloodthirster or Redemption item Redemption, or by ally abilities, such as Nidalee OriginalSquare Nidalee's.
  • The maximum health of a champion can be increased through equipped items built from Giant's Belt item Giant's Belt. Currently, the only champion that can increase maximum health is Lulu OriginalSquare Lulu.
  • Many origins, classes and champions interact with health.
    • Volibear OriginalSquare old Volibear instantly kill enemies with his Special Ability if the target is below 35% health.
    • Exile TFT icon Exile's shield scales with maximum health.
    • Brawler TFT icon Brawlers and Shapeshifter TFT icon Shapeshifters gain maximum health by meeting certain conditions.
    • Druid TFT icon Druid restores health every period of time.
    • Noble TFT icon Nobles grant on-hit healing.
    • Light TFT icon Light heal for 25% of their maximum health when a Light unit dies.
    • Phantom TFT icon Phantom reduces an enemy champion's current health at the start of each fight.
    • Predator TFT icon Predator instantly kill enemies they damage who are below 25% health.
    • Summoner TFT icon Summoner grant their summoned units bonus health.
    • Steel TFT icon Steel gains damage immunity for a few seconds when they are reduced below 50% health.

Mana

  • Most champions use mana as resource for their Special Ability. Mana is generated by basic attacking and when taking damage.
    • Basic attacks can generate up to 12 mana per attack.[1]
      • 1-Star units generate 8 mana per attack.
      • 2-Star units generate 10 mana per attack.
      • 3-Star units generate 12 mana per attack.
      • Sorcerer TFT icon Sorcerers and Elementalist TFT icon Elementalists generate twice as much mana per basic attack, and double the cap to 20 per attack.
    • Mana from taking damage is pre-mitigated damage, capped at 50 per damage source.[2]
    • Champions with mana automatically use their Special Abilities when their mana bar is full.
    • After casting their Special Ability, champions can't accumulate mana for the second thereafter. Some champions are mana-locked for longer (e.g. Kindred OriginalSquare Kindred and Varus InfernalSquare Varus).
    • Five out of six Shapeshifter TFT icon Shapeshifter champions are locked from mana gain permanently after using abilities. This is because their abilities lasts longer than a round, making mana on them useless once transformed. However, Shapeshifters using Guardian Angel item Guardian Angel revive in their original form. They need to refill their mana after revival.
    • Some champions do not utilize mana, or use it in a different way:
  • Mana generation can be prevented with the Silence icon mana-lock effect.
  • There is a stat called Starting Mana. Champions using mana have that amount of mana at the start of the game. Higher starting mana allows champion to cast their first special ability sooner, but does not effect on later usages.
  • Some champions interact with mana in even more ways. This is partially why monsters have mana without any Special Abilities.
    • Kassadin OriginalSquare Kassadin's basic attacks consume enemy mana and convert it into a shield.
    • Kha'Zix GuardianoftheSandsSquare Kha'Zix restores mana with his Special Ability.
    • Lux ElementalistSquare Lux restores mana when at least one enemy killed with her Special Ability.
    • Twisted Fate CutpurseSquare Twisted Fate has a chance to grant mana to himself and allies.
    • Demon TFT icon Demon units gain the chance to burn enemy mana and fill up some of their own.
    • Ocean TFT icon Ocean units restore mana every period of time.
    • Poison TFT icon Poison units apply Neurotoxin when they deal damage, increasing the mana cost of the target's spell by 50%.
