How the New TFT Legends Affect Your Gameplay in TFT Set 9

Learn more about the specific Legends Augments and how to make the best use of them.


One of the new and exciting mechanics of TFT Set 9: Runeterra Reforged is the Legends players get to choose before starting a game, which affects what augments they will see in-game. Each of the 15 TFT Legends will give players one fallback option during each augment selection stage, which is supposed to prevent them from low roll moments according to the TFT’s Lead Designer Stephen “Mortdog” Mortimer.

Players can come into a game with a plan already in mind and execute on it with the Legend Augments. Depending on your preferred playstyle, you can choose augments that will give you XP and gold to accelerate your pace, gold and free rolls to star your champions or more stats to make your army stronger. There is even a Poro Legend for players who don’t want to curate their augments.

But keep in mind, these TFT Legends are at their strongest when you pick an augment on Stage 2-1. At later stages, 3-2 and 4-2, Legend Augments will be slightly weaker since they are guaranteed to show up, and they will be more generic compared to early options.

TFT Legends that will give you more items

Bard

Gain items, Radiant items or even starred-up units when you reach certain thresholds.

Combat power through units or stats
