Following Blademasters, Dark Star will too have a new 9 unit milestone. Having 9 Dark Star units will gain 45 Attack Damage and Spell Power every time a Dark Star unit is eliminated.
It will be harder to gain Dark Star units because the current live version of TFT Set 3 Galaxies, there are only 6 Dark Star champions. However, with the inclusion of new unit, Xerath, another Dark Star unit, it should be a more achievable.
You will need to turn two more units into a Dark Star unit. Combining Spatula and Sparring Glove with give you the Dark Star Trait item.

Following Infiltrators, the Protector trait will also have 6 unit milestone. Boosting Protector maximum health shield gained to 45% for 4 seconds after a spell has been casted.
Protector currently has only 4 Protector units, so combining the Spatula with a Giant’s Belt will help you get the addition Protector units.

More units coming to TFT Set 3?
Due to the shortage of units available to achieve the maximum bonus effect and not let players rely on Spatulas, Riot Games will need to increase the TFT Set 3 Roster. And it maybe sooner than you think.
Riot Games have already began increasing the champion pool size with the introduction of Xerath. However at the time, there is no further details if there will be more added.
Maybe, there will be a new Galaxies, where every carousel round, a player receive a spatula to receive the full potential updated traits.
In addition, upon reaching the max trait bonus effect, the Trait icon will have a nice rainbow effect.
