The 12.11 patch of Teamfight Tactics Set 7, TFT Dragonlands is in full swing, but figuring out which comps are good can be hard. However, thanks to aggregate data sites like MetaTFT.com, finding out the play is just in the numbers. Here is a look at the current TFT Patch 12.11 tier list based on average placement.
S-Tier (Average Placement below 4.00)
In a set that has a ton of powerful crowd control tools, this comp takes advantage of the primary reason why CC is good: to buy time for a huge hyper-carry to pop off. There is not a better hyper-carry in the game at the moment than Ao Shin. In fact, if there was a better carry, it would be a problem.
That’s because Ao Shin is a 10-cost Dragon with a very expensive ability. His 200 mana cost spell is high-risk high reward, and since it takes an unreal amount of time to cast, Ao Shin may not cast in some fights. But when he does, it’s practically a round ender.
With this comp, Ao Shin has the best chances to cast, and it’s pretty likely since literally, every single champion in this comp has a form of CC.
TFT Set 7 Dragonlands has a lot of three-cost carry champions and, just like in previous sets, comps that can run multiple are a recipe for success. In comes the duo of Olaf and Diana, who are two of the best three-cost damage carries in the game.
On their own they are powerful, but together they are even better. That’s because they share the Scalescorn trait, which essentially has the item Giant Slayer baked in. The extra damage of these three-starred, three costs will help you smack down the toughest boards.
A-Tier (Average Placement below 4.20)
Since the beginning of TFT, the combination significant ranged backline damage and a strong frontline has been a tried and true way to the top. There is no wavering from that strategy in Set 7, because Swiftshot Bruiser is the newest comp in the long line of front-to-back fighting.
This comp is the easiest to play on paper. Put in four Swiftshot champions and four Bruiser champions and proceed to climb the ladder.
For players who want to focus on the strength of four-cost carries, the best comp that plays them in Patch 12.11 is this Ragewing Guild composition. It relies on the power of Xayah and Talon. This comp excels at dealing with opposing backline threats. That’s because Talon is an assassin that jumps the backline while Xayah’s feathers reach all the way to the where your opponent thinks their team is safe.
B-Tier (Average Placement below 4.30)
Of course, there is still strong reroll options in this current patch. The best performing one at the publishing of this article is Jade Reroll. Ezreal puts up three-cost carry numbers as a one-cost champion and, with a supporting cast, he is definitely good enough to be the hyper carry even through the late game.
He does need some award-winning co-actors to pull it off. Leona, Karma and Taric are the other three-star champions players should aim for along with Ezreal
