Riot is already starting to look ahead to TFT Set 7. With Gizmos and Gadgets ending in a few months, a host of new champions, traits, and a unique mechanic will be added. Here’s what we know about TFT Set 7 and its dragons.
Riot is getting ahead of things a bit—with TFT Set 6.5 still waiting for release, the developers are already giving players their first bit of information about Set 7.
“Our seventh set is set in the Dragon Realms where clans compete for power over various islands, each worshiping their own powerful ancient dragons trapped behind the mysteries of sleeping shrines,” developer Craftbrew said in a development video.
The hype is already building for TFT Set 7, including the roster of champions and traits, and the Dragon mechanic teased in that brief introduction. Here’s what we know so far, including when it will come out.
TFT Set 7 Leaked Champions and Traits
Well, it can’t be a Teamfight Tactics set without some champions and traits to play with.
However, only one unit has been shown for TFT Set 7 so far, and that is Illaoi. The Kraken Priestess is shown as a three-star unit with a buffed-up version of her ultimate League of Legends, Leap of Faith, smashing all over the board.
The related segment starts at 6:30 PM.
However, Chinese leakers have revealed some new champions and traits ahead of TFT Set 7. These include a new “Dragon Clan” vertical trait, as well as the return of five-star Lee Sin (but no kicks off the board).
Here’s a full list of leaked units of that datamine.
- Lee Sin
It’s still in its infancy though, and as the set polishes up day by day, Riot keeps their cards close to their chests until the big reveal. We’ll keep you updated on the TFT Set 7 champions and traits as they’re confirmed.
TFT Set 7 mechanic explained: Dragons
Riot is very keen to keep a similar mechanic for TFT Set 7 after the success of Hextech Augments from Gizmos and Gadgets. The developers have talked about a new Dragons system, in line with the theme set, as the next evolution.
†[We’re] building on community favorite Hextech Augments to bring a comparable level of replayability and strategy to a world of dragons as varied as the mechanic’s combinations,” Craftbrew said.
However, Riot didn’t explain exactly how to train and build your dragon. There’s a hexcore on the board in the TFT Set 7 teaser, so that may hint at the developer’s intentions, but we won’t know until the full set is revealed.
TFT Set 7 brings back Armories in a new way
Although Armories were added and loved in TFT Set 5, and reused in Set 6 as part of the Augment system, they are no longer as common. However, Riot is bringing Armories back in a new way in TFT Set 7.
Developer Stephen “Mortdog” Mortimer said it will also be a much “healthier” version of the mechanic.
“What we’re working on for Set 7 I think will make a lot of people missing Armory happy. And I also think it will do it in a healthier and more interesting way.”
TFT Set 7 release date
Riot has given a very wide release window for TFT Set 7 — “Summer 2022† With the Neon Nights Mid-Set update coming out in February, it’s safe to assume the upcoming Dragons set release is sometime in the May or June 2022 at the latest.
