Teamfight Tactics set two is expected to bring massive changes to Riot Games' popular autobattler set in the League of Legends universe with a whole new set of champions, classes, origins, and items.

Since the massive Riot Games announcement on October 15, Teamfight Tactics players have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the game’s biggest shake-up yet - set two. Titled Rise of the Elements, a whole new set of champions, classes, and origins will be released revolving around the elemental theme.

While there’s not a lot of conclusive information out there yet, we’ve compiled everything you need to know about the next set for TFT before it comes out in just a few days.

Teamfight Tactics will be coming to mobile in early 2020, and crossplay will be available.


When is the release date for Teamfight Tactics set 2?

Teamfight Tactics set 2 is expected to drop on the Public Beta Environment (PBE) during Patch 9.22, which will be released on October 22. It will be released onto live servers two weeks later on November 5.

TFT is also coming to mobile, with Riot tentatively setting a date in early 2020 for its release on Android and iOS. Crossplay between mobile and PC will be available, and inventories will be the same across both clients, but any RP you buy on PC cannot be used on mobile, and vice versa.


What are the new origins and classes for Teamfight Tactics?

During the Riot Pls video on October 16, some of the new origins and classes for Teamfight Tactics were announced. Most of them are in line with the Rise of the Elements theme, revolving around nature. 

There was also an additional leak on October 20 by Russian Youtuber ‘Zak’, which was translated by Reddit user 'LordSuteo', which gave players a look into an origin and class not teased in the official Riot video: Steel and Predator.

Origins

  • Steel
  • Poison
  • Inferno
  • Desert

Classes

  • Predator: At three units, any damage a predator deals to an enemy below 25% health will execute them.
  • Summoners
  • Mystics


What champions are coming to Teamfight Tactics in set 2?

There has been a few teasers for the new champions coming to TFT. The biggest of them all was from the Riot Pls video on October 16 when they announced the release of the set. 

Deep Sea Thresh, Atlantean Syndra, Dark Waters Vladimir, and Nautilus were shown in the gameplay demo on stream, who could all be aligned with a Water origin given the style of their skins. Renekton, Nasus, Jax, and Yorick could also be seen.

Ashen Lord Aurelion Sol was included in that same video too, but according to lead designer Stephen 'Mortdog' Mortimer, he won’t be in the set, so the champion expansion list is still tentative to change.

It's quite fitting that Elementalist Lux would be included in the Rise of the Elements set for Teamfight Tactics.

Justicar Aatrox, Assassin Master Yi, Frosted Ezreal, Infernal Diana, Shockwave Zed, Tundra Warwick, Elementalist Lux, Sivir, Kog’Maw, Zyra, Nami, Olaf, and Annie were showcased in this particular collage.
