TFT Set 4 Champions and Traits [Fates]

On 26th August 2020, Riot Games gave a sneak peek into the latest TFT set Fates. Spilling the juice on some of the new champions coming up in Set 4, as well as a look into the new mechanic of the game. This information is just a preview of what’s going to happen in the new set, but it presents enough insight to get excited about it!

With TFT Set 4 approaching fast (it’s expected to hit PBE next week in the new patch cycle.) , Riot continues to tease us with even more information about how the new set, TFT: Fates, will be distinctively different from TFT: Galaxies. Let’s take a look at everything teased so far for TFT Set 4.

TFT Set 4 Release Date

Providing the Teamfight Tactics team doesn’t run into any critical issues prior to launch, TFT set 4 should arrive in Patch 10.19. With TFT Galaxies ending on September 15, we can safely assume this would give us a launch data of September 16. Regrettably, this update is only coming to the PC and mobile players will have to wait to get their hands on the new set.

TFT Chosen Mechanic

In Set 4, you ‘re going to have a chance to get a Chosen Champion on your team. Completely at random, you’ll see the units in your store that display the chosen trait, which gives them some advantages never seen before in TFT. Chosen champions come exclusively as 2-star units (but they do cost three times more than 1-star units) and would have several extra benefits.

Firstly, the chosen trait will count for two of the traits assigned! For example, certain traits can become activated with the use of a single unit.

Secondly, the Chosen Unit will receive 200 bonus health alongside bonus spell power, bonus attack damage, or reduced mana cost on its ability. The other factor to take into consideration is that you can only have one Chosen Champion on the field at once, and once you’ve bought one (even if it’s on the bench), you won’t see another Chosen Champion in the shop. This offers you an interesting scenario where you might try to snowball by taking a Chosen Champion early or waiting for the absolute best champion down the line. However, Chosen Champions appear randomly in the store pool, and waiting for somebody else to emerge may be a very high risk strategy.

TFT Set 4 Champions and Traits List

Here is a look at all the traits and champions currently identified, that will be part of the new Fates set. We haven’t got details about all bonuses from each trait yet.

Assassin

  • Pyke – (2 cost Cultist/Assassin)
  • Katarina – (3 cost Warlord/Assassin)

Brawler

  • Sylas – (2 cost Moonlight/Brawler)
  • Vi – (2 cost Warlord/Brawler)

Cultist

The Cultists are TFT’s biggest set with eight champions. The cultists use their powers to call upon the Demon Lord Galio rather than to gain numerical buffs via synergy perks. The more Cultists you field, the more power Galio has once summoned.

  • 3): Tyrant Galio
  • (6): Demon Lord Galio
  • (9): Supreme Overlord Galio

Every new level of Galio dramatically increases his stats and provides him new abilities. In Galio’s biggest form, Supreme Overlord Galio’s health reaches a mindbogglingly 7000 health with 600 AD thrown in for good measure.

Here’s a look at the current Cultist champions know so far:

  • Elise – (1 cost Cultist/Exemplar)
  • Twisted Fate – (1 cost Cultist/Mage)
  • Evelynn – (3 cost Cultist/Shade)
  • Kalista – (3 cost Cultist/Duelist)
  • Aatrox – (4 cost Cultist/Vanguard)

Dazzler

  • Lissandra – (1 cost Moonlight/Dazzler)

Duelist

  • Kalista – (3 cost Cultist/Duelist)
  • Xin Zhao – (3 cost Warlord/Duelist)

Exemplar

  • Elise – (1 cost Cultist/Exemplar)
  • Jarvan – (2 cost Warlord/Exemplar)
  • Kennen – (3 cost Ninja/Exemplar)

Mage

  • Twisted Fate – (1 cost Cultist/Mage)

Moonlight

Moonlight is a 3-piece trait, with all champions costing no more than 2 gold. What that implies is players can trigger this trait in the game extremely early. This trait will upgrade your team’s lowest level unit by one star once unlocked! Moonlight can then be used to get 3-star champions faster than you typically would. The deadliest part about this new trait is it generates 4-star champions. If a player has all 3-star champions and has the Moonlight trait activated, the champion that’s holding the most items will be upgraded to a 4-star unit…WUT!

Here’s a look at the current Moonlight champions known so far:

  • Diana – (1 cost Moonlight/Assassin)
  • Lissandra – (1 cost Moonlight/Dazzler)
  • Sylas – (2 cost Moonlight/Brawler)

Ninja

  • Kennen – (3 cost Ninja/Exemplar)

Phantasm

  • Thresh – (2 cost Phantasm/Vanguard)

Shade

  • Evelynn – (3 cost Cultist/Shade)

Sharpshooter

  • Nidalee – (1 cost Warlord/Sharpshooter)

Vanguard

  • Garen – (1 cost Warlord/Vanguard)
  • Thresh – (2 cost Phantasm/Vanguard)
  • Aatrox – (4 cost Cultist/Vanguard)

Warlord

Warlords continue to gain health and spell points for every battle they win. Somehow this buff takes into account battles won before the synergy becomes active also. This buff can stack up to five times.

  • 3) 30 HP & 3 SP
  • (6) 40 HP & 5 SP
  • (9) 80 HP & 10 SP

Here’s a peek at the latest known Warlord champions:

  • Nidalee – (1 cost Warlord/Sharpshooter)
  • Garen – (1 cost Warlord/Vanguard)
  • Jarvan – (2 cost Warlord/Exemplar)
  • Vi – (2 cost Warlord/Brawler)
  • Katarina – (3 cost Warlord/Assassin)
  • Xin Zhao – (3 cost Warlord/Duelist)
