Teamfight Tactics champions - drop rates, classes and origins

Featured post

Teamfight Tactics has champions that are purchased from the shop. Each one comes with their own classes and origins that you must learn in order to optimise what kind of team you are building. Player levels are also tied into the drop rate for any particular champion, which we will be going over.

Teamfight Tactics champions guide

This guide will go over all of the Origins and Classes for every champion, as well as a small explanation about drop rates and why they’re vital to understanding how Teamfight Tactics works.

Teamfight Tactics drop rates

One of the more interesting things about Teamfight Tactics is how player levels affect what appears in the shop. This is something that is being constantly altered during the early days of Teamfight Tactics, but the current drop rates were shared by Riot Games’s August Browning via Twitter.

Much like other auto-battlers, the champions that are revealed in each refresh of the shop are out of a pool of champions that have been distributed among all the players. So if you have been building up Vayne and notice that the supply of Vayne copies is drying up, the culprit behind the drought might be one of the opponents. If this is the case, you can sell off Vayne to get some much-needed cash.

The table below contains the current drop rates for each tier of champions. If you’d like to know more about the individual champions, check out our TFT tier list guide.

Teamfight Tactics Origins and Classes

Teamfight Tactics has two different traits that it uses for categorising individual champions. Traits are how each champion is linked to other champions across your roster. The more champions you have of a specific Origin or Class, the better the bonuses that are applied to each applicable champion. Some provide buffs to certain stats, while others fundamentally change the way a champion works.

While Origins and Classes are thematically different, they’re functionally similar to each other in how they work. Origins point to the species of your chosen hero, while their Class is linked to the roles they perform. You’ll need to build a team with the same Origins and Classes shared across your active roster.

For example, if you want your team to comprise of Sorcerers, you’ll need to have at least three of them on the battlefield to get the first stage of the trait bonus. They have to be different champions, meaning you can’t have three Ahri’s on the battlefield and expect them to synergise their traits. Instead, you’ll need three different Sorcerers to unlock that bonus, then a further three to unlock the second rank.

All Origin and Classes have different unlock criteria, so below are two tables that list each of the Origins and Classes that are available, as well as the bonuses for having multiple champions on the battlefield of that Origin/Class.
