Teamfight Tactics Comps Guide
There are currently 51 different champions available right now. With abilities, origins, classes, and items to consider, it can be hard to know how strong each one is. And that doesn’t even consider the fact that how you combine the various champions is equally as important. Our Teamfight Tactics comps guide will run down some of the best team builds available!You May Also LikeGood Teamfight Tactics Comps
The Teamfight Tactics meta is changing pretty rapidly as Riot continues to release frequent balance updates for the game. We’ll do our best to keep this guide up to date, but as a whole, it exists mostly to give new players some idea of solid team builds.
This list was last updated on July 17, 2019 for Patch 9.14.
Thanks to and for being awesome sources of information!
While Gunslingers aren’t as overpowered as they were on the PBE, they’re still incredibly powerful now that Patch 9.14 is live.
The long story short is that you want to buy all of the Pirates and Gunslingers you can get your hands on. That means Tristana, Graves, and Lucian are your earlier priorities. You can add Pyke and Gangplank as things start to progress. Those are your core five with enough numbers to get the three Pirates and two Gunslingers buff.
Later you want to add Sejuani and Cho’Gath who are still both great despite nerfs. If you’re offered Miss Fortune, grab her and replace Gangplank or Graves.
In the end, your team comp should look like: Cho’Gath, Gangplank, Graves, Lucian, Pyke, Sejuani, Tristana.
With this group you’ll get the following buffs:4 Gunslingers – Tristana, Graves, Lucian, and Gangplank have a 50% chance to attack two additional targets in range.3 Pirates – You earn up to 4 additional gold from each PVP round. Average gold per chest is 1.6 gold.
Recommended Items:Tristana: Cursed Blade (Negatron + Recurve), Rapid Firecannon (2x Recurve), Red Buff (Chain Vest + Giant’s Belt)Lucian: Hush (Negatron + Tear), Sword Breaker (Negatron + Chain Vest), Cursed Blade (Negatron + Recurve)
With the change to Zeke’s Herald, Ninja Elementalists have a really, really good mid game right now. With all of the damage buffs and no tier three requirements, just line up all of your champions on the back line and deal some real damage.
Spend early game buying up Pyke, Zed, and Kha’Zix. Later you can add in Brand, Lissandra, and Kennen to activate the Elementalist buff. Once you have all three, put them all in immediately. Fill up the remaining spots with your highest tier units. Remember to only use one Ninja until you have all four!
In the end, your team comp should look like: Akali, Brand, Kennen, Lissandra, Pyke, Shen, Zed.
With this group you’ll get the following buffs:3 Elementalists – At the start of combat, summon an Elemental with 2500 health and 100 attack damage.3 Assassins – +150% crit damage for your Assassins.4 Ninjas – +60% attack damage for your Ninjas.
Recommended Items:Zed: 3x Zeke’s Herald (BF Sword + Giant’s Belt)Akali: Dragon’s Claw (Negatron Cloak + Negatron Cloak), 2x Locket of the Iron Solari (Chain Vest + Needless)
You’ve probably had a ton of Teamfight Tactics matches start with Darius and Garen. If you get both of them up to two stars, this is a great comp to build into. It’s also one of the few team comps to use Ionic Spark!
Like we said, prioritize Darius and Garen early on. Katarina is a good mid-game pickup in combination with Poppy, Sejuani, and Draven. The last of those, Draven, is the second carry on this team and is a crucial champion.
The beauty of this comp is that you can ultimately use any combination of Knights after Garen and Darius! Because of this we recommend it for new players. Feel free to use Mordekaiser, Poppy, or Sejuani to get the buff. Later in the game we certainly recommend running Sejuani, however, and Kayle is a good replacement for one of the nonessential Knights like Garen later on.
In the end, your team comp should look like: Darius, Draven, Garen, Katarina, Sejuani, Swain, Poppy.
The hope is that the high health frontline should be able to protect Draven and allow him to burn down the entire enemy team. Just make sure you’re itemizing Draven as best as you possibly can. It’s crucial that he can do enough damage before your frontline falls. While he has some sustain thanks to Bloodthirster, it’s not enough to stop him from getting burst down by assassins and the like.
With this group you’ll get the following buffs:4 Imperials – Double damage for all Imperials.2 Knights – Knights block 20 damage from basic attacks.2 Brawlers – +300 bonus health to Brawlers.1 Robot – Robots start combat with full mana.
Recommended Items:Swain – Ionic Spark (Needless + Negatron), Phantom Dancer (Chain Vest + Recurve), Dragon’s Claw (2x Negatron)Draven – Guinsoo’s Rageblade (Needless + Recurve), Rapid Firecannon (2x Recurve), Bloodthirster (BF Sword + Negatron)
With Elise now a tier one unit, it’s possible to get both her and Nidalee at two stars relatively early. If you find yourself in that situation, this comp can really do some damage. Just grab Varus as another early game unit and you should have a pretty good time.
During the mid-game you want to turn on the Shapeshifter and Demon buffs. Start filling things out with the likes of Shyvana, who is one of your main carries, and Aatrox. Whatever the results, get four Demons and three Shapeshifters online.
In the end, your team comp should look like: Aatrox, Aurelion Sol, Elise, Gnar, Morgana, Shyvana, Varus.
With this group you’ll get the following buffs:3 Shapeshifters – On transform, gain 60% max HP.4 Demons – Your demons have a 50% chance on hit to burn all of the target’s current mana, dealing true damage equal to the amount burned.2 Dragons – Dragons are immune to Magic Damage.
Recommended Items:Shyvana: Warmog’s Armor (2x Giant’s Belt), Rapid Firecannon (2x Recurve), Hextech Gunblade (BF Sword + Needless)Varus: Seraph’s Empace (2x Tear), Guinsoo’s Rageblade (Needless + Recurve), Rabadon’s Deathcap (2x Needless)
Again, Warwick and Nidalee are super common early game champions. If you find yourself centering around them early on, then transitioning into this one should be easy. The goal is to get all four Brawlers up as fast as possible. With Warwick and Nidalee you’ll already have the first Wild buff to help you through early game.
Once you start approaching Level 7 start looking to transition into the likes of Volibear, Brand, Lissandra, Kennen, and Cho’Gath. Putting these together should get you the Elementalist and Glacial buffs.
In the end, your team comp should look like: Anivia, Ashe, Blitzcrank, Brand, Cho’Gath, Lissandra, Rek’Sai, Volibear.
With this group you’ll get the following buffs:4 Brawlers – +700 bonus health to Brawlers.3 Elementalists – At the start of combat, summon an Elemental with 2500 health and 100 attack damage.4 Glacials – Glacial units have a 35% chance to stun on hit for two seconds.1 Robot – Robots start combat with full mana.
Recommended Items:Volibear: Rapid Firecannon (2x Recurve), Guinsoo’s Rageblade (Needless + Recurve), Warmog’s Armor (2x Giant’s Belt)
