TFT Set 6 Champions, Traits, and Mechanics (From Teaser Video)

Riot Games recently dropped a dev video teasing some of the new mechanics coming to TFT Set 6.

In this article I’ll be covering all of the new mechanics we know of so far, as well as my thoughts about the set’s potential.

We don’t have a confirmed release date, but based on the patch schedule and the video, we can safely assume that the release of Set 6 will be on November 3rd with the 11.22 patch.

TFT Set 6 Mechanic: Hextech Augments

The new set mechanic is one that upgrades your entire board. Here are some example augments:

  • All of your ranged champions gain 2 extra range.
  • All of your champions with an item gain 200 Health and 20 Attack Damage.
  • Gain 1 additional gold and a free reroll every time you lose in combat.
  • Opens up an Armory that lets you pick from a Set 4 Ornn Artifact.
  • Allows you to see who you will fight each round.
  • Allows you to level up to 10.

Infinite Possibilities

In my opinion, this Set mechanic has to potential to be as exciting as Set 4. We don’t know too many details about the Augments yet, like how many you get, when you get them, etc. Even still, based on the examples we’ve gotten so far, I can imagine that there will be tons of exploring to do in the new Set.

TFT Labs

New Co-op Lab

TFT 2 Player Team Lab

A new Lab will be joining the Hyper Roll Lab in Set 6. Shortly after the launch of Set 6, a new team mode will be released. This will allow you to queue up with a friend and play against 3 other teams of 2.

You will have your own unique board, but you will have a shared health pool with your teammate.

Furthermore, at the end of the release, the top rated teams will compete in a tournament to see which pair is the best in the world.

Chibi Champions

The last teaser we have for Set 6 is a cosmetic release.

Little Legends are famous in TFT, but now, you will have the option of buying Chibi Champions. These tiny versions of League Champions are bound to be extremely popular.

This won’t affect gameplay in Set 6, but it’s a fun addition for the game, especially for players who enjoy both League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics.

Closing Thoughts

From the video we’ve seen so far, I believe that Set 6 will be an extremely fun and wild set for competitive and casual players alike. The dev team have clearly put a lot of effort into this new set, and I can’t wait to try it out on the PBE server.

In the meantime, the Set 5 World Championship will be happening soon, so if you are thirsting for some TFT content, make sure to check it out on October 1st.
