We are providing an update to our TFT guide about the slow roll leveling strategy here in Set 4.

Right now in TFT Set 4, there are multiple meta comps that have come emerged in the first few patches of the new set which employ the slow roll mechanic. Due to the changes that came to TFT in Set 4, most of these comps revolve around a 2 or 3-cost unit that you will try to level quickly.

With the new Chosen mechanic, you will basically go for these comps any time you get the primary carry as a Chosen before Level 5. Not only will this get you two of the Chosen traits, giving you more flexibility in rounding out your comp, it also automatically gives you a 2-star copy of that unit, thus limiting your need to slow roll for 3-stars. However, if you aren’t able to find a Chosen of your primary carry, just make sure to find a Chosen that fits your comp.

Here are the _ most common slow roll comps in TFT Set 4. Note, the * denotes your primary carry who is the focus of your slow roll strategy.
