Teamfight Tactics: Reckoning adds a new set of units and Shadow Items
Teamfight Methods’ upcoming Numeration upgrade will bring a significant brand-new function to the video game, Shadow Products, along with a brand-new set of systems, a brand-new mode, and other components. In an early play test, Polygon got the possibility to take a look at all of Numeration’s brand-new updates.
The most significant brand-new addition to Numeration is Shadow Products. These are brand-new variations of the familiar TFT element products like B.F. Sword and Chain Vest that have actually been instilled with the Black Mist.
Shadow Products have the exact same statistics as typical products, however when you integrate them into bigger products, they change the product’s impacts. Typically, the Shadow variation of a product is more effective, however comes with an unfavorable compromise. For example, the Shadow variation of Guardian Angel reanimates the system that’s bring it at 100% health, rather of simply 400 overall health. However, when the system comes back, they have 50% less attack speed.
The Shadow versions of component items can be picked up either on the system carousel or from the game’s new armory. The armory pops up every few rounds and offers players a choice of items. Those items might be Shadow Items, or they could be regular items. Meanwhile, neutral monsters will continue to only drop regular items.
Of course, a new TFT set also means all-new units and Traits, and Reckoning delivers on that front, too. One of the most interesting new Traits in Reckoning is Coven, which belongs only to Morgana, Lissandra, and Leblanc. When you have all three of those champions active, the champion closest to the center of the trio becomes their Coven Leader and gets 50% bonus ability power.
Reckoning also includes several unique units like Teemo, who has to be purchased using player health rather than gold, and Kayle, who gets stronger every five seconds until she turns into TFT’s strongest system.
On top of all these new additions to the regular TFT video game mode, Riot is also adding a brand-new mode called Hyper Roll for players to test out as part of TFT Labs. This game mode is focused on making games extra fast by doing things like having players take a certain amount of damage every time they lose a round and making level-ups automatic.
Teamfight Tactics: Reckoning is set to arrive on the Public Beta Environment test server sometime this week, and will make its way to live servers after a couple of weeks of screening.
