TFT: Teamfight Tactics Set 4.5 Dragonsoul Trait revealed

Riot Games has revealed the new Dragonsoul trait coming to Teamfight Tactics with the Set 4.5 refresh. Here’s the latest on TFT Fates!

The mid-set update for Teamfight Tactics will be removing numerous champions and traits and replacing them with new ones. As we approach Set 4.5, Riot Games has slowly been peeling back the curtain. Today, the developer revealed the newest trait coming to TFT Fates, Dragonsoul.

In typical Riot fashion, we only got a sneak peek at the new trait. However, if you are a frequent visitor to the TFT subreddit, you’ve probably seen the specifics. Here’s what has been confirmed officially by Riot.

Based on the accompanying video teaser, we know there will be seven Dragonsoul champions:

  • Tristana (Dragonsoul Sharpshooter)
  • Brand (Dragonsoul Mage)
  • Braum (Dragonsould Vanguard)
  • Shyvana (Dragonsoul Brawler)
  • Olaf (Dragonsoul Slayer)
  • Aurelion Sol (Dragonsoul Mage)
  • Swain (Dragonsoul Syphoner)

Their specific costs and secondary trait synergies have not been officially confirmed but I went ahead and included what was already leaked. Some of those synergies and champions have already been revealed. For example, we already know Olaf is a Slayer and that Swain is a Syphoner. We also know what those traits are capable of, which helps us determine the type of synergy you can form with Dragonsoul.

It sounds like Dragonsoul is actually a pretty flexible trait. It “can empower champions with a very powerful buff that gives them stats and has them shoot a powerful dragon breath attack.” TFT lead gameplay designer Stephen “Mortdog” Mortimer called it a “fun trait” while offering a bit more context to the trait. It sounds like Dragonsoul will provide some opportunities for “really interesting decision making” as you’ll have to position your champions in a particular way in order to activate the trait.

While not officially announced, the leaked details for Dragonsoul explain that the Dragonsoul blessing only applies to one champion at a time. They’ll gain 40, 80 or 200 Spell Power and Attack Speed depending on the number of Dragonsoul champions that are played. Dragonflames also deals 40%/80%/200% of a champion’s max health. The blessing is passed to the closest Dragonsoul ally upon death.

According to the leak, there are three breaks for Dragonsoul with the max being at 9. With only seven Dragonsoul champions, it appears you’ll have the option to form a Dragonsoul item as well as pick one up as a Chosen.
