TFT Hero Augment Guide

Set 8: Monsters Attack is introducing a new mechanic, Hero Augments. They’re like a mix between the current Augment system, and the Chosen system from Set 4.

This article will cover everything you need to know about the new mechanic, as well as a list of all the Hero Augments.

For a list of all of the Augments and Hero Augments, check out our Augment Page here.

How Hero Augments Work

TFT Hero Augments

Much like regular Augments, you will be given a selection of 3 Hero Augments to choose from. This will empower a specific champion in the game, and also give you a copy in case you don’t have one yet.

Every player will receive a selection at the same time, and the heroes shown will scale up depending on which selection you are given.

Every unit has two different Hero Augments, one being a supportive one, and the other one looking to turn them into a carry.
