Teamfight Tactics - TFT tier list [9.17]

Featured post

We saw some changes to some champions in Teamfight Tactics in the 9.17 patch. Several champions have seen some drastic changes, most notably the Nobles being given a much-needed nerf, and perhaps the rise of the Shapeshifters? There is also a brand new Dragon/Guardian who has divebombed into the battlefield and caused all sorts of chaos. We’ve got the lowdown on all the updates to the TFT tier list in patch 9.17.

Teamfight Tactics tier list [9.17] guide

This guide has the TFT tier list as of patch 9.17. We also have all of the updated champion stats and skills for every single one of the champions in the game.

 TFT tier list 9.17 - includes Pantheon

TFT 9.17 tier list

Above is our TFT 9.17 tier list, which includes the new champion – Pantheon.  It’s unclear just how much Hextech will change things, but any champion that uses items a lot may find themselves vulnerable so do keep coming back to see how they change as the days go by.

There are champions that are essential for certain team compositions, but there are also ones that only really should be used as part of your corresponding synergies (Origins and Classes). To see how they fit into certain comps, check out our Comps TFT 9.17 guide to help you out.

Best champions in TFT 9.17

Of the top picks, Gnar got yet another buff, this time to reduce the time it takes for him to transform. Shapeshifters are in an even better place than before, so Gnar is going to be very hard to stop once he gets going. Swain and Yasuo have incredible abilities for that late-game push – even if they’ll rarely ever see beyond rank 2.

Pantheon has made a big impact since his introduction and it’s clear that this 5-gold champion was meant to be powerful. We’ve slotted him in the Amazing tier as he can easily carry a team. However, the meta can most definitely change over the weekend, especially if they keep tinkering with him.

Volibear has also been an absolute monster for quite a while, making up the bread and butter of a Glacial/Brawler comp. A recent update to items has only made him and Draven more desirable picks for the best comps. Hextech champions are a big pain for these comps, and Draven has indeed gone down in the rankings. Jinx also got a nerf in the latest patch, but it may not change much. We’ve put her in “Decent” for now, but we’ll keep an eye on how she does.

Nobles got a fair bit of a nerf in the champion trait, but are still overall in a great spot. Kayle and Garen are high tier thanks to Kayle’s application of protective shields, combined with Garen’s crowd control.

Find out more about them in our TFT patch notes [9.17] guide.

Lower tier champions in TFT 9.17

The worst champions at the time of writing are Fiora, Kassadin, Rek’Sai and Gangplank. Fiora is just that little bit too vulnerable post-early game. Gangplank’s ability is decent and his synergy with other champions is vast, but a recent nerf has dampened his effect on the battlefield. Lissandra for the longest time was considered the worst, but she did get a bit of a buff to her overall stats, so there’s a chance she might now see her as a big part of Glacial/Elementalist based comps.

As for Rek’Sai and Kassadin, both Brawlers and Sorcerers got a pretty major nerf overall and these were the worst of the bunch for those two classes. Void may still be very useful, but we anticipate a major shift to Gunslingers in the meta with some rather disgusting combinations, as well as the new Gunslinger introduced just being ridiculously attractive for Gunslinger/Hextech comps.

TFT 9.17 champion stats

Perhaps you want to make your own team compositions? Below are several tables which will list all of the champions by their tier. At tier 1, they’ll all cost one gold to purchase, tier 2 champions cost 2 gold, and so on up to tier 5 at five gold.

In each table, I recommend either searching for the champion’s name if you know it or the Class/Origin of your choice to see which ones are available at that tier. Please note that health is displayed with three numbers, each corresponding to a particular star rank.

Rank 1 is the left-hand number, Rank 2 is the middle one, and Rank 3 is the right-hand number. For example, Miss Fortune currently has 700/1260/2520 HP. All other stats increase as well, though patch 9.14 confirmed what these values are.

We’ve updated the stats tables below as of 9.15b, which completely changes some stats, but we’ve done the hard work of re-totalling the numbers for DPS and health.
