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 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

• 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-star and 3-star champions have respectively 180% and 324% of the maximum health and attack damage of the 1-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, Tier 2, Tier 3, Tier 4, Tier 5, Tier 7).
• Most champions have one origin and one class, with a few exceptions. Satisfying the origin or class conditions grants bonus effects.

Champion Item Inventory

• 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.

Champion Store

• The summoner has a champion store of 5 randomly picked champions.
• The summoner can spend 2 gold to reroll the pool.
• The champion store can be locked to keep the current champions in the store.
• Champions from the store can be bought at the cost of their tier in gold. And they can be sold for:

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:
$\pagecolor{Black}\color{White}{\rm Damage\ multiplier}= {100 \over 100+{\it Armor}}$
• 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
• All champions starting with Star-level are 1-star.
• 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-star and 3-star champion have respectively 180% and 324% of the maximum health and attack damage of the 1-star version of the champion. The ability also becomes stronger by an amount specific to the champion.
• reduces a unit's Star-level by 1-star. A unit can be reduced to a 0-Star unit with 70% of maximum health and attack damage.
• is the only champion interact with Star-level, which deals massive damage to champions with a lower Star level by his Special Ability.
• The effect of , , , increases according to the Star-level of the wearer.
• Other mechanics:
• Banish temporarily removes the target from the battlefield. The target is unable to do anything, and cannot be attacked by enemy team during this duration.
• is a damage over time that also reduces healing.
• Disarm prevents the target using basic attacks.
• .
• causes incoming attacks to miss (deal no damage and do not apply spell or item effects).

Calculations

Critical strike damage
• Formula to calculate the value of critical strike damage:
• Critical strike damage = 150% + + ( × 125%).
• Example: With 1 and = 150% + + (1 × ) = 425% critical strike damage.
Spell Power
• Formula to calculate the amount of  Spell Power:
• Spell Power = (SP from items + Trait bonuses) × (1 + ( × 0.75)).
• Example: With 2 and = ( + ) × (1 + (2 × 0.75)) = 300 SP = 300% increased ability effects.

Resources

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

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.
• and 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.  and ).
• Five out of six 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 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:
• Set 1:
• charges his axes with mana and can keep using them even without it.
• , , and have no mana.
• Set 2:
• , , and have no mana.
• Mana generation can be prevented with the effect.
• Some champions can self- themselves, like .
• 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.
• basic attacks consume enemy mana and convert it into a shield.
• restores mana with his Special Ability.
• restores mana when at least one enemy killed with her Special Ability.
• has a chance to grant mana to himself and allies.
• units gain the chance to burn enemy mana and fill up some of their own.
