Teamfight Tactics - Origins guide

Every Origin in Teamfight Tactics explained.

In Teamfight Tactics, each Champion has a particular Origin which confers special bonuses when certain conditions are met.

Below we’ll take you through all the Origins in Teamfight Tactics and the bonuses they confer. As time goes by, we’ll update this page with tips, tricks and strategy advice too, so keep this guide bookmarked for all the latest.
