Based on this tier list, we have also taken the average ranking of each champion within every Class and Origin in TFT, which will give our aggregated ranking so you know which synergies are best in Patch 9.24b. One thing to note is that these rankings are purely based on the average champion strength within that group, not the strength of the buff the synergy provides. We are assuming for purposes of this tier list that champions are ranked based on not only cost and statistics, but whether they can be part of a powerful synergy.

Best compositions

In accordance with our rankings of the best champions, Classes and Origins, we now give you a guide for the best comps in Patch 9.24b, along with the units you should buy in each one, as well as the best supplemental synergies to pair those comps with. We will put an asterisk next to the units that should be the main focus of these comps, to get to 2 or 3-stars and put items on. Note that when we recommend specific units of a Class/Element but omit others for your pairings, we are saying these are the options we would consider to be above average or worthwhile additions to your comp.

  • Blender Comp: Nocturne (*), Zed, Kha’Zix, Yasuo, Master Yi (*)
    • Can swap Yasuo for Sivir
    • Key items: Blade of the Ruined King (Nocturne), Guinsoo’s Rageblade (Nocturne/Master Yi), Infinity Edge (Nocturne/Zed/Kha’Zix), Bloodthirster (Nocturne/Master Yi), Hush (Nocturne/Sivir), Sword Breaker (Nocturne/Sivir)
  • Inferno/Summoner: Annie (*), Yorick, Zed, Kindred, Brand (*), Amumu (*)

Concluding notes

While there’s not much more these aggregations can tell us with certainty with regards to comps or items, here is what our data can tell you about what to look for within your next Teamfight Tactics game.

  • As the title alludes, Taric is one of the strongest units in TFT in Patch 9.24b, which is largely due to how good Wardens are in general. That Ranger/Warden comp discussed above is particularly good with how he and Ashe synergize.
  • Comps continue to be very late game-focused, with very few Tier 1 and 2 units that are worth hyper rolling around. Again, try to get a decent early game comp and get your key late game units to 2-stars rather than rolling to get a 3-star unit.
  • Souldbound appears to have been over-hyped initially, with Senna and Lucian now being towards the middle and bottom of the tier list. They also suffer from the fact that their secondary traits (Shadow and Light, respectively) are quite weak.
  • Woodland isn’t just the worst Origin, it’s the worst by a mile. I still think it’s fine to go full Woodland early, but if you get your Ivern, Maokai, or Neeko to 2-stars you should stop buying any more. They are not remotely worth rolling.
  • Qiyana remains a powerful pick in TFT, so there are opportunities to mold your comps based on which board you get. I think she is especially strong on Mountain and Cloud boards because of how strong those synergies are and how few units can fit into it. For Cloud in particular, Blender comps with her and Yasuo are incredibly strong.
