Teamfight Tactics: Neon Nights is the mid-set expansion for TFT Gizmos & Gadgets. With over 20 roster swaps, this expansion is one of the biggest in TFT’s history. Not only are brand new champions making their TFT debut from League of Legends, but Silco is also making his debut. There are also more surprises than just Zeri and Silco. Here is a breakdown of what the new TFT Neon Nights champions do.
Goodbye to these champions
Of course, to make room for the new cast, players will have to say goodbye to these champions from the first half of TFT Gizmos & Gadgets. They will (or maybe won’t) be missed.
- Dr. Mundo
- Twisted Fate
Zeri, League of Legends newest champion has already made her debut in TFT. Wearing her release skin, Withered Rose, Zeri is a Debonair Sniper five-cost champion. Debonair is one of the new traits in TFT. As for Sniper, players familiar with the first half of TFT Set 6 should remember the trait.
Zeri comes with a passive. Just like in League, Zeri’s auto attacks fire multiple shots. In TFT they fire five bullets with each auto-attack dealing 16% of her Attack Damage as physical damage and also does bonus magic damage on-hit as well.
As for her ability, Zeri comes with her ultimate ability as her spell, “Lightning Crash.” In TFT this spell electrifies Zeri for six seconds. While electrified, Zeri’s auto attacks pierce and she dashes after every attack.
Zeri is a hybrid carry that is similar to Jhin and is definitely going to be a premier carry option when the update comes out.
Silco enters the game as TFT’s first-ever non-League of Legends champion. Of course, someone this unique is going to be a five-cost champion. Silco is a Mastermind Scholar. Scholar is a familare trait to TFT, but Mastermind is a unique trait only to Silco.
Mastermind states that the two champions directly in front of Silco start with 40% of their maximum mana as bonus starting mana. For example, a Galio that is placed in front of Silco will start the round with maximum mana. Players can try putting Silco in the back row and place their ranged carries in front to cast faster or put him in the second row and have their powerful tanks with heavy crowd control cast fast too.
Silco’s spell is “Unstable Concoction.” Silco targets the lowest health ally and injects them with shimmer. When injected, that champion gains 50% of their maximum health, becomes immune to CC and gets a 100% attack speed steroid. This seems pretty good, but the side effect is that after eight seconds they explode and die. When they explode they deal 300 damage in a small radius.
Silco is primarily used as an ultra assist tool while also making even the most useless synergy bots strong in the late game.
There are many other new champions coming to the game as well. Now, only Rammus remains the only champion in League of Legends to not appear in TFT. But Riot said that he may come to the game in Set 7. Many of the new champions are a part of the Hextech and Debonair traits. Here is a breakdown of the remaining new additions.
- Ashe 2g – Syndicate/Sniper
- Corki 2g – Yorlde/Twinshot
- Rek’Sai 2g – Mutant/Brawler
- Gnar 3g – Socialite/Striker/Yordle
- Tryndamere 3g – Chemtech/Challenger
- Senna 3g – Enchanter/Socialite
- Morgana 3g – Syndicate/Enchanter
- Kha’Zix 4g – Mutant/Assassin
- Ahri 4g – Syndicate/Arcanist
- Irelia 4g – Scrap/Striker
And finally, there is Renata Glasc a completely new champion appearing in both League of Legends and TFT.
