We have our first look at TFT: Fates, so let’s break down every single trait coming to Set 4.

4. Shade

Description:When combat starts, Shades teleport to the enemy backline. Every third attack Shades dip into the shadows, stealthing and causing their next basic attack to deal 100/200/300 bonus magic damage (2/3/4).


  • Zed (2g)
  • Evelynn (3g)
  • Kayn (5g)

Thoughts: This won’t be a main comp to build around but I think it will be one of the strongest splash Classes in TFT when Set 4 rolls around. I also wonder who would be the best to put the inevitable Spatula item we get for this Class, since we can get up to 4 Shades.

5. Assassin

More from News

Description: Before combat starts, Assassins leap to the enemy backline. Assassins’ spells can critically stike and they gain bonus Critical Strike Damage and Chance (2/4/6).


  • Diana (1g)
  • Pyke (2g)
  • Akali (3g)
  • Katarina (3g)
  • Talon (4g)

Thoughts: After getting Set 3 off, Assassins are back in TFT. Now that Infinity Edges can no longer stack, I anticipate they will be a bit easier to balance in Set 4, but you could easily go for a full Assassin comp. One thing to note is that there are only five Assassin champions as of yet, but you can have a 6 Assassin comp, which makes me believe there will be an Assassin Spatula item.

6. Mage

Description: Mages cast twice and have modified Spell Power (3/6/9 units).


  • Nami (1g)
  • Twisted Fate (1g)
  • Lulu (2g)
  • Annie (2g)
  • Veigar (3g)
  • Ahri (4g)
  • Lillia (5g)

Thoughts: Hey, Mages are back after a break in Set 3! Last time we had Mages in TFT they only had a chance to do the second cast of their ult, but now it looks like Riot is just going to tune back their spell power on that second cast. Enlightened/Mage comps (with Nami as the bridge unit) could be the equivalent of Ocean/Mages from Set 2.
