Teamfight Tactics, Riot Games’ counter to Dota Underworlds is here and it has been a hit among players and streamers alike.
While you will have a much easier time getting the hang of things with a League of Legends background, you can play this new game with no prior knowledge whatsoever, meaning that if you like what you see then you can jump right in.
Many familiar faces from League of Legends make appearances here but they might not be as effective here as they are in League.
With so many team compositions to choose from and so little time to decide what route you want to go, it’s important to know who’s the best.
Here’s our tier list of all 50 Legends in Teamfight Tactics. Keep in mind your own list may vary and this is just personal preference.
These champs represent the best of the best and have strength by themselves but also as part of a team composition.
It’s hard to go wrong picking any of these Legends and you should try and get them whenever you see them in the carousel or available for sale.
These Champions all appear around the mid to late game and they are worth scooping up as soon as possible.
All three of them can hold their own in battle, especially Draven, but they really shine when used as part of a team.
Gnar features the Wild, Yordle and Shapeshifter bonus meaning he can easily round out those teams as well as being a force on his own.
Cho’Gath quite possibly has the deadliest AoE attack in the game and Draven’s simply a beast.
These Champions are absolutely no brainers like the S Tier ones but they are still important to have.
Characters you find in this tier will be able to replace weaker characters in your team or round out the rest of your team.
They have the strong potential to carry you to the end game but won’t always work on their own.
- Aurelion Sol
These are all champs you’ll have a lot of success with, including Garen, Darius and Nidalee who are three early-game characters who can be upgraded to end-game status.
This tier is where a lot of the Champions start blending together as they have a mix of effectiveness but also reliance on other characters around them.
These are all characters who work best when getting their bonuses but could fill in a bit in a pinch if you have an open slot.
- Twisted Fate
Yasuo is an interesting champ as he has the Exile bonus which means he literally performs better when he’s by himself. He’s a solid pick but given the sheer difficulty of gearing him up, he finds himself in the B Tier.
Champions you find down here are good decisions if you have nothing else but you might want to consider rotating them out for better options.
Anyone on this list works fine as a last resort option but there are many better options out there.
- Miss Fortune
Blitzcrank is a fun unit to use early on as he’s able to yank an enemy over to you and he has the added bonus of being a robot and who doesn’t like robots?
The Rest of the Legends
These are Champions who don’t really have many uses. They can fill out a team composition but they are generally some of the weakest Legends in the game and should probably be replaced ASAP.
It’s really only worth having these characters at the beginning of a game and that’s about it.
You’ll find a lot of Gunslingers and Yordles down here and unfortunately, that’s because they aren’t all that great. Perhaps some changes could come down the line and change that.
