All The New Champions, Classes, And Origins In Teamfight Tactics: Reckoning Set 5

Teamfight Tactics: Reckoning Set 5 arrives soon and will introduce a number of new mechanics and content. As detailed in a March 2021 Dev Drop, the set will center around the classic good versus evil archetype, complete with thematic Shadow items and fresh game modes, such as Hyper Roll.

The roster of champions and traits will also receive a refresh, with only a few classes staying the same and a handful of champions coming back. Whether you're excited or terrified to see champions like Little Devil Teemo strutting around the arena, the Teamfight Tactics: Reckoning update will continue the evolution of the popular auto battler game.

Riot gave players a breakdown of everything coming to Teamfight Tactics in a mid-April dev blog. There's plenty of time to check out the new characters and traits and figure out some team comps before Set 5 hits the main servers on April 28, 2021. This guide serves a quick primer to get your gears turning and point you in the right direction.

Which champions appear in TFT: Reckoning Set 5?

As detailed by tftactics.gg, a lot of champions will either debut or return to Teamfight Tactics in Reckoning for some major meta shakeups. To keep things as simple as possible, we've sorted the Set 5 champions by cost.

  • 1-cost champions: Aatrox, Gragas, Kalista, Khazix, Kled, Leona, Lissandra, Poppy, Udyr, Vayne, Vladimir, Warwick, and Ziggs
  • 2-cost champions: Brand, Hecarim, Kennen, Leblanc, Nautilus, Sejaurni, Sett, Soraka, Syndra, Thresh, Trundle, Varus, and Viktor
  • 3-cost champions: Ashe, Katarina, Lee Sin, Lulu, Lux, Morgana, Nidalee, Nocturne, Nunu, Pantheon, Riven, Yasuo, and Zyra 
  • 4-cost champions: Aphelios, Diana, Draven, Ivern, Jax, Karma, Mordekaiser, Rell, Ryze, Taric, and Velkoz
  • 5-cost champions: Darius, Garen, Heimerdinger, Kayle, Kindred, Viego, and Volibear

The Reckoning set also adds a unique 6-cost champion. Instead of coins, Teemo costs 6 health to buy from the Shop as part of the Cruel class. However, if you decide to sell him, you'll only get 5 coins in return.

Which classes does TFT: Reckoning Set 5 include?

Only a few classes carry over with the Reckoning update: Assassin, Brawler, and Mystic. All the other classes are either new or returning, with three in particular serving as potential gamechangers.

The Cruel class consists of only Teemo. Beyond costing health to purchase, the Little Devil's kit revolves around debuffing enemy carries. However, he can one-versus-one more than his skillset might lead you to think. According to a press release, the Caretaker class is similar in that Heimerdinger is the only champion. He creates a baby dragon that attacks while also giving mana to its handler once it's knocked out.

God-King is another new class that's unique to Garen and Darius. Essentially, the two are aligned to the good and bad side of the set's archetype. When going against origins that are opposite of either Darius or Garen's archetype, the God-King will deal additional damage to those enemies.

The other new classes hitting the arena are Cavalier, Invoker, Knight, Legionnaire, Ranger, Renewer, Skirmisher, and Spellweaver.

Which origins does TFT: Reckoning Set 5 feature?

All the Reckoning origins are aligned to either a "good" or "bad" side. This has a major effect on the abilities of Darius and Garen. The origins aren't necessarily good or bad in a moral sense — they're just opposing forces that align with either the Dawnbringers or Nightbringers. Both the Dawnbringers and Nightbringers are new origins as well.

The new "good guys" that side with Garen and the Dawnbringers are Redeemed, Verdant, Draconic, and Ironclad.

The new "bad guys" that side with Darius and the Nightbringers are Forgotten, Coven, Hellion, Dragonslayer, Abomination, and Revenant.

Some of the origins are similar to older origins, such as Hellion, which grants an attack speed buff reminiscent of the buff from the Duelist class in the Fates set. You should be able to find something that's similar to other team comps you've enjoyed in the past!
