Teamfight Tactics - Classes guide

Here's a look at every Class in Teamfight Tactics.

Champions in Teamfight Tactics not only have an Origin, they also belong to a specific Class. Akali, for example, is an Assassin, while Yasuo is a Blademaster, and having a certain number of the same Class on the board will confer a special bonus exclusive to that archetype.

Class bonuses vary wildly, with Assassins buffing each others’ critical strike damage, while multiple Blademasters have a chance to strike additional times during each attack. In Teamfight Tactics, it’s important to balance the Classes in your team composition so you’ve got a wide range of bonuses which bolster and complement everyone on your roster.

Below we’ll take you through every Class in Teamfight Tactics and we'll update this page as the game evolves - stay tuned.
