[Top 10] Teamfight Tactics Best Champions That Are Powerful

Using strong champs is the key to winning your teamfights!

10. Nidalee

In a game where you have crazy dragons and cost 3, 4, and 5 get the spotlight, it's good to have a very strong cost 1 champ as well. For set 7, that would have to be Nidalee. Although innocent looking at first, after transforming into its cougar form, Nidalee is not one to be messed with. 

  • A Cheap Carry!

Due to her being a cost 1 champ, it’s VERY easy to get her to 3 stars pretty early in the game which will give you a huge boost over your opponents.

  • Ideal Items: 

Played best with items such as the Deathblade, Guinsoo’s Rageblade, Quicksilver, and Infinity Edge.

  • Trait Benefits: 

Shapeshifter is among the best traits in the entire game so it’s no surprise that Nidalee will be present in such comps as a carry


9. Yasuo

Yasuo is DOPE. Seriously. It’s a shame that his traits have made him not as great as he could have been. Don’t feel let down by that though, as this is one of the very few champs that can add a lot to your team, even if they don’t have any active traits. That’s right. Yasuo’s sweeping blade ability is just what you would expect from a legendary champ. He is a serious damage dealer and with items such as the Bloodthirster, Infinity Edge, and Titan’s Resolve, he will be sweeping your opponents from side to side as if it was nothing.

  • Top Tier Legendary Card:

 3-star Yasuo is basically GG for your opponents, as he will get a whopping 2500 shield for 20 seconds whenever he uses his ability. Not only that, but he will also deal 3000% attack damage with his slash. That’s no typo, three-thousand percent. This is the only legendary damage dealer, excluding dragons, so getting him to 3 stars will not be as complicated as his dragon counterparts.

  • Infinite Damage?

”If Yasuo hits only the last enemy left alive, he repeatedly slashes them until they die.” This means that no matter how much life your last standing enemy has, Yasuo will quite literally destroy them.

  • A One Man Army:

Add Yasuo into any comp with a pair of Thief’s Gloves and that will be just enough to have a solid damage dealer in your comp, no matter what traits you are currently playing with.


8. Sylas

Sylas stands as one of the better bruisers in the game. With an initial stat of 800 health, and the ability to mana-reave, he is definitely a champ to look out for in your comps. More commonly used as a late-game champ, he can be added to most comps as a placeholder and tank out for the rest of your troops.

  • Defensive Royalty:

Sylas is probably one of the best tanks, and bruisers, in the game.

  • Trait Compatibility:

Sylas can be paired perfectly with the dragon Syfen, as both share the Bruiser and Whisper trait, making it essential for any Whisper comp.

  • Ideal Items

Uses your regular tank items such as the Gargoyle Stoneplate, Sunfire Cape, and Warmog’s Armor.


7. Neeko

Right after Sylas, we have arguably the best tank in the game: Neeko. With a whopping initial health of 1000, Neeko will do wonders for your comp. At the beginning of the game, thanks to her shapeshifter trait, she will transform into the ally closest to her,  adding their bonus Attack Damage and Attack Speed to her own and copying all other stats except Health. Just make sure you pick which ally she will copy wisely!

  • Defensive Queen, with a catch:

Neeko is arguably the best tank in the game, however, she will not fit into all comps as easily as other tanks like Sylas or Shen.

  • The Ability To Clone An Ally:

Her ability is very special, as if it is placed next to let’s say a dragon she’ll take its form and allow you to have two dragons for a short time.

  • Best Items:

Uses common tank items like the Gargoyle Stoneplate, Sunfire Cape, and Warmog’s Armor.


6. Bard

Bard is an odd champ. It is neither a damage dealer, nor is it a tank. That may make you wonder why he costs 5 coins. However, he hides a pretty big secret behind the mask. During a team fight, Bard will create “doots”. Whether from hitting stunned opponents, or a 2% of creating one when allies survive, Bard will dance once he gets a doot and increase the chance of getting higher-level troops in your shop by 1%. This effect eventually starts to stack up in the late game, but it will be a massive advantage to upgrade your higher-level champs quickly.

  • A Trait-Based Champ:

The Bard trait is very unique as it allows for better chances of high-level champs in your shop.

  • Great Team Player:

His active ability is also nice, as it can stun enemies and while stunned make them take 15%/20%/9999% bonus damage from your allies.

  • An Underrated Champ:

Bard can be disregarded by most players due to the lack of any strength outside of his passive abilities, compared to many other legendary cards like Yasuo or Zoe.


5. Daeja

Daeja is not only one of the better dragons, but he’s also amongst the best champs in the game. With his Windblast ability, Daeja will constantly deal loads and loads of magic damage. His ability also reduces magic damage resistance, a bonus that would benefit not only his attacks but also his teammates.

  • Watch Out for the Mirage Ability:

It’s important to consider that Daeja shouldn’t be played all the time. Due to the Mirage trait which Daeja is a part of, you should only play it whenever the mirage variation is good.

  • Placement is Key!

Not really a defense-oriented dragon, so make sure to always play him in the corners of your arena as that will allow it to do more damage for longer.

  • Best Items:

Most commonly played with items such as the Giant Slayer, Guinsoo’s Rageblade, and Archangels Staff. 


4. Corki

Corki is probably the most reliable carry for set 7. A non-legendary, not-a-dragon carry that is. Costing you 4 coins, Corki is insanely good and it will blast the entire enemy team to shreds. The revel-cannoneer trait combo has allowed it to be one of the most played champs in the entirety of set 7. 

  • An Innate Carry:

Has been commonly seen in the same two comps throughout set 7. One is Shimmerscale-Cannoneers, and the other is Whispers-Cannoneer. He is the carry for both which would further demonstrate his true capabilities.

  • Protect Your Corki at all Costs:

His abilities make him a high volume, high damage champ so make sure to protect him at all costs.

  • Best Items:

Most commonly used with items such as Guinsoo’s Rageblade, Giant Slayer, and Hand of Justice.


3. Ao Shin

It's not surprising that a dragon like Ao Shin is in the top 3 of the strongest champs in the game. And for good reason, Ao Shin fires a barrage of 20 lightning strikes at random enemies. Each strike deals 225/400/2500 magic damage and reduces 10 current Mana from his target. You will constantly get +8k damage just from his attacks, and the enemy team seems to vanish whenever he uses his ability.

  • A Rich Man’s Carry:

Ao Shin’s high cost makes it a late-game carry, which is why if you don’t manage your economy well… This is probably not the champ for you.

  • A Great Dragon With a Not-so-Good Trait:

The only downside for Ao Shin is that his tempest trait seems to slow him down. Most commonly played in Tempest 4 comps, however, Tempest 6 is probably the sweet spot for him.

  • Best Items:

Uses items such as the Giant Slayer, Spear of Shojin, and Archangels Staff.


2. Syfen

Syfen is a BEAST. He can work as both a strong damage dealer and a tank. His dashing ability is great as it stuns its opponents, and he is only 8 coins! There aren’t many bad things that you can say about him, which is why he can easily be placed in the second spot of best champs in TFT currently.

  • A Versatile Beast:

Syfen is the most versatile dragon in the game. Why? First of all, it has the bruiser trait which by itself is great. Also, thanks to its Whisper trait, Syfen can be played with tanks like Syfen or damage dealers like Elise. Either way, he’ll be a great addition to your comps.

  • Intimidating and Strong:

His abilities make him a force to be reckoned with, and your opponent’s comp will be too busy trying to take him down while the rest of your team continues to deal even more damage.

  • Best Items:

Uses items such as the Bloodthirster, Titan’s Resolve, and Quicksilver.


1. Ao Shin

And in the number 1 position, probably coming as a surprise to nobody, is Aurelion Sol. Riot developers have tried to nerf him so much, but he remains the best of the best. His ability, Black Hole, summons an unstable black hole underneath a random enemy which after 18 seconds of combat becomes larger and deals 15% more damage. He has some serious potential to kill the enemy team in a blink of an eye. 

  • Trait Compatibility:

Playing Aurelion Sol among evokers will allow it to gain more mana quickly and therefore spam his ability.

  • Manage your economy first:

As a 10-cost troop, you must play your cards right to be able to even get him in your team and level him up to a godly 2-stars.

  • Best Items:

Commonly used with items such as the Mage emblem, Spear of Shojin, Archangel's Staff, Giant Slayer, and Hextech Gunblade.
