teamfight tactics fates 2

Teamfight Tactics second half, Fates 2 is coming soon and this means that there will be new champions joining the roster and some will inevitably leave. Riot Games has posted a long article on all the changes. The notes below show all new, changing and leaving champions when the new set arrives.

Teamfight Tactics Fates 2 Leaving Champions

Out with the old, in with the new. For the mid-set update, we’re shaking things up by removing a handful of champions to make room for new ones. So, what’s leaving us?

  • Moonlight – The moon wanes! No longer will its light bathe our low-cost units, providing them with additional star levels. They’ve had their moment in the moonlight, and their removal will help shake-up the early game. Say goodbye to the following units:
    • Lissandra
    • Sylas
    • Aphelios
  • Dusk – Dusk’s removal will pave way to the dawn of a new origin we’ll talk about later— Dragonsoul! This means we’ll no longer see the following units in Fates:
    • Vayne
    • Thresh
    • Riven
    • Cassiopeia
    • Lillia
  • Hunter – This group of synchronous snipers are headed out. Gone are the battles wherein they pick off foes in the blink of an eye. Farewell to:
    • Aphelios
    • Warwick
    • Ashe
  • Dazzler – When Sharpshooters and Hunters were running amok, who did you turn to but the glamorous Dazzlers to bring them down a notch? However, the following champions will dazzle no more:
    • Lissandra
    • Lux
    • Ezreal
  • Shade – No longer will Shades be slinking in and out of the shadows, terrorizing the enemy backline only to disappear without a trace. Speaking of, I can’t seem to find the following champions:
    • Evelynn
    • Kayn

We also have a few additional units leaving who don’t fall into one of these removed traits:

  • Nami
  • Hecarim
  • Jinx
  • Xin Zhao
  • Jhin
  • Ahri


Teamfight Tactics Fates 2 Changes

  • Diana
    • Moonlight / Assassin → Spirit / Assassin
    • Diana uses a different skin, so be on lookout for her new appearance!
  • Zed
    • Ninja / Shade → Ninja / Slayer
    • New: Zed now has a passive ability where he jumps to the back to replace the old Shade passive. It does not include the aggro drop part though, so he is a lot more vulnerable this time around.
  • Kindred
    • Spirit / Hunter → Spirit / Executioner
    • We’ll talk about Executioner in a moment, but other than that, no change. Kindred are still the same strong 3-cost carry!
  • Morgana
    • Enlightened / Dazzler → Enlightened / Syphoner
    • The built-in healing on her spell has been removed and replaced with a 40% AD reduction effect—but more on Syphoners later.
