With Teamfight Tactics’ Set 2 of units hitting the PBE today, here is everything that we know about the new champions that are coming to TFT from League of Legends.

As the League of Legends ranked season draws to a close, Riot Games has begun to give us a sneak peak at what is ahead for Season 10. For Teamfight Tactics, that means a whole new batch of units, Classes, and Origins coming out in Set 2, which is set to go live in Patch 9.22. So, what do we know about Set 2 based on what hit the PBE today?

Familiar faces

Set 2 will have 51 units on release, of which 13 will be returning from Set 1. Those returning champions will be

  • Vayne
  • Volibear
  • Varus
  • Braum
  • Yasuo
  • Rek’Sai
  • Veigar
  • Kindred
  • Aatrox
  • Ashe
  • Brand
  • Kha’Zix
  • Zed

While these champions are coming back, they won’t all be the same as you remember. For one, some of the returning units will have different costs associated with them (Volibear is a 3g unit in Set 1, but he’ll be a 2g unit in Set 2). For another, these champions will likely have new Classes and/or Origins to their kits, though some will have elements from their previous kits that you already know.

New names to learn

If you’re good at math, that means you’ve figured out that there are 38 new champions that will be coming to Teamfight Tactics in Set 2. Those new champions will include:

A couple of firsts

Set 2 of Teamfight Tactics will feature the first champion with a flexible Origin. Qiyana will have one of four possible Origins, depending on where she is positioned on the board (which will now have four different elemental hexes as part of a system-wide update that should add a ton of new strategy to Teamfight Tactics.

In addition, Lux will have the ability to have multiple Origins (she appears to be able to have 10 possible Origins) but such flexibility will come at great cost. That’s right, Lux will become the first 7 gold cost unit in Teamfight Tactics history, so you’d better save up if you want to play her on PBE!

New Origins

As I noted above, some Origins that we know, like Glacial, will be coming back (Braum and Volibear will bot retain their Glacial Origin from Set 1). However, there are a bunch of new Origins set to drop in Set 2, giving us tons to learn and play with! The new Origins are:

  • Crystal, who can only take a maximum amount of damage per hit
  • Desert, who reduce the enemy’s armor
  • Electric, who shock nearby enemies whenever they deal or take a critical strike
  • Inferno, whose spells burn the ground beneath the target and deal bonus magic damage
  • Light, who gain attack speed and are healed when one of their allies dies
  • Steel, who gain damage immunity briefly when they drop below half health
  • Mountain, who grants a health shield to a random ally
  • Ocean, who cause all allies to restore mana every few seconds
  • Poison, whose damage increases the target’s mana costs
  • Shadow, who deal increased damage at the start of combat and after takedowns
  • Cloud, giving all allies a dodge chance
  • Woodland, who create a copy of one unit randomly

New Classes

Like with Origins, there will be some returning Classes like Ranger, Assassin, and Blademaster. Of course, there are still some new Classes that we’ll have to sink our teeth into.

  • Alchemist, who ignore unit collision and never stop moving
  • Druid, who restores a flat amount of health per second
  • Mage, who has a chance to double-cast their abilities
  • Mystic, who gain a flat amount of MR
  • Predator, who instantly kill enemies below 20% health
  • Berserker, who leap to the nearest enemy and have a chance to damage all units in a cone in front of them
  • Warden, who gain armor
  • Summoner, who summon units
  • Avatar, whose Origin Element is counted twice for trait synergies.

While these changes hit the PBE today, these changes will go live in Patch 9.22, which should go live in a couple of weeks.
