Andrew Amos

The TFT Set 5.5 update, named Reckoning: Dawn of Heroes, is set to introduce 12 new champions to replace some of your old favorites. We’ve got the list of all the new champions and traits coming in the Mid-Set, and who’s fallen to the Ruination.

TFT Set 5.5 is finally here, with the Reckoning Mid-Set update introducing an all-new Ruined Items feature to replace their Shadow counterparts, as well as a Divine Blessing drop that rewards players like Lucky Lanterns.

However, the big part of every Mid-Set is seeing which champions are joining the Convergence. In TFT Set 5.5, 12 new champions ⁠— and associated traits ⁠— are being added as the fight between the Sentinels of Light and the Ruined heats up.

New TFT Set 5.5 traits list

The biggest addition, traits-wise, in TFT Set 5.5 is Sentinel. It ties into the multiverse event across Runeterra, Rise of the Sentinels. The guardians of Runeterra are fighting back against the Ruination (basically the Forgotten) to try and keep the Black Mist back.

To do so, they’ll need a bit more weaponry. Cannoneer is being added as a new trait too, and while it sounds similar to Gunslinger, it’s different in practice. Some five-cost traits, like Victorious and Inanimate, have also been added.

As for reworked traits, Forgotten has gotten a significant rework to become more like Warlords with the removal of Shadow Items. Forgottens now get a base bonus of AD and AP, which scales based on winning combats.

Name Trait Breakpoints
Cannoneer (Senna, Tristana, Miss Fortune, Lucian) After their fifth attack Cannoneer Champions replace their next attack with a cannon shot after dealing a percentage of their maximum Mana as physical damage to enemies near the target. 2 / 4 / 6
Victorious (Garen) When Victorious champions score a kill, their next attack is empowered to deal 40% of the target’s missing Health as bonus magic damage. 1
Inanimate (Gwen) At the start of combat, Inanimate champions summon Harrowing Mist in the 2 hexes surrounding them for a few seconds, granting all allies within damage reduction from enemies outside of the mist. 1
Sentinel (Olaf, Senna, Irelia, Pyke, Rakan, Galio, Lucian, Akshan) At start of combat, the Sentinel with the highest Health gains a shield that grants Attack Speed each time it is applied. When the shield is destroyed or expires it will pass to the ally with the lowest percent Health. The shield Health and the Attack Speed get bigger with more Sentinels. 3 / 6 / 9
