Best TFT Comps for Patch 11.1

Premium Content: NEW UNLIMITED GOLD HUNTER

Patch 11.1 marks a new year for TFT, and this will be the last patch of Set 4 before going into Set 4.5. This patch is very small as expected, and a lot of the tier movements are mainly due to the meta evolving rather than due to changes.

As such, the patch should feel very similar to 10.25, so don’t be afraid to go for a final ranked push before the set ends.

NOTE: These team comps will be accurate when we publish at the beginning of the patch but are constantly updated by our experts. If you visit in between patch releases, there may be a slight lag time for when the blog is updated to match it so be sure to check our official website’s TFT team comp page for the most up-to-date info.

The best overlay for TFT

6 Dusk: S-tier

6 dusk 10.23

Dusk comps follow a similar boat as Keepers. It arguably has a better late game power spike than Keepers due to the Dusk bonus. Just like Keepers, this comp can flexibly fit in lots of 5 cost units like Lillia, Sett, Kayn, Yone, etc.

Team comp description:

This comp utilizes a Chosen Dusk to hit 6 Dusk in order to beef up Riven as the main carry. Jhin is also a good secondary carry who can utilize Dusk Spatula very well.

[How to play 6 Dusk]

When to make:

Go for this comp if you find an early Chosen Dusk, find good Riven items, or find an early Riven.

Raikou: S-tier

raikou 10.23

Warwick even after the nerfs still seems to be a very powerful 4 cost carry. Warwick is arguably the best 4 cost carry, but the 5 cost options are slightly more limited than with Keepers or Dusk.

Team comp description:

This comp looks to make Warwick the main carry with 4 Divine and Hunter.

[How to play Raikou]

When to make:

Go for this comp if you find a Chosen Divine and have decent Warwick items.

Moonlight Adept: S-tier

Moonlight Adept (Patch 10.25 formation)

Aphelios is a very all in carry. If you are able to hit Aphelios 4, you will become a late game monster. However, getting there is often the problem. It’s strength is definitely there, but it can be inconsistent compared to other builds.

Team comp description:

This comp uses a Chosen Moonlight in order to hit a 4 Star Aphelios. The rest of the team consists of the Adept core and units like Kindred and Yuumi for Spirit.

[How to play Moonlight Adept]

When to make:

Go for this comp if you find either a Chosen Moonlight Lissandra or Aphelios.

6 Keepers: A-tier

6 Keepers (Patch 10.25 formation)

Keepers aren’t super overpowered in the late game, but it transitions very easily and utilizes many different 5 costs well. Because of this, the late game power of this comp is both strong and flexible. You can drop Keepers for stronger units, or even be competitive with the basic 6 Keepers.

Team comp description:

This comp uses a Keeper Chosen in order to hit 6 Keepers. Kennen carries the early and mid game while Jhin will be the main backline damage.

[How to play 6 Keepers]

When to make:

Go for this if you find a Chosen Keeper or an early Kennen with Morello or Guardian Angel.

Zed and Friends: A-tier

Zed and Friends (10.25 TFT comp)

With the B patch in 10.24, Zed has fallen a bit from the top. He is still a very strong carry, and can definitely still win games if you find enough copies of him early on.

Team comp description:

This comp revolves around Zed and buffing him up with the Ninja trait. The rest of the units are solid units to create a good supporting cast of synergies.

[How to play Zed and Friends]

When to make:

Go for this comp if you find a Chosen Zed or have good items for Zed.

Warlord Katarina: A-tier

Warlord Katarina formation (Patch 10.24)

Katarina follows a similar boat to the top comps. This comp can win streak very early and also has options when it comes to late game 5 cost carries. The only problem is that Katarina has more specific items she needs to be strong.

Team comp description:

This comp utilizes a Warlord Chosen unit to hit 6 Warlord. The comp centers around Katarina as the main carry of the comp with Nidalee help deal early game damage.

[How to play Warlord Katarina]

When to make:

Make if you find an early Chosen Warlord or find good Katarina items.

Vanguard Mystic Ahri: A-tier

Vanguard Mystic Ahri (10.25 TFT comp)

Ahri is still a strong comp, but like the other strong comps, the success of this comp also relies on late game 5 cost units. 4 Mystic is less important than 4 Vanguard, and as such, many players opt to drop down to 2 Mystic in order to fit in more carries like Yone and Kayn.

Team comp description:

This comp utilizes a Chosen Mystic or Chosen Vanguard unit in order to hit 4 Vanguard 4 Mystic. This comp looks to stall long enough for Ahri to one shot enemies with her ability. You can also choose to drop 4 Mystic for 5 cost units depending on your lobby.

[How to play Vanguard Mystic Ahri]

When to make:

Go for this comp if you have good Ahri items and find a Chosen Vanguard or a Chosen Mystic.

9 Cultists: A-tier

9 cultists 10.23

Cultists have received lots of nerfs over time. The comp can still perform well under the right conditions, but it is a bit less consistent than the other top comps.

Team comp description:

This comp looks to hit 9 Cultists in order to deal lots of damage with Galio. The cultists units themselves provide a lot to the team, and there is lots of flexibility in terms of supporting units to run before hitting 9 Cultists. The items on Pyke are examples of early game items to win streak, but prioritize Jhin items as he will be the main carry of the team.

[How to play 9 Cultists]

When to make:

Go for this comp if you have a Chosen Cultist and good items for Jhin.

Moonlight Diana: A-tier

Moonlight Diana formation (Patch 10.24)

Diana has been hit with plenty of nerfs, but the early game strength of Moonlight is still there. It won’t be as easy as before, but Diana can still definitely win streak into a strong late game comp.

Team comp description:

This comp uses a Chosen Moonlight to make Diana a hyper carry at 4 stars with Moonlight. You really want to have a Spatula in the late game in order to hit 6 Assassin, but you can have 4 and replace some Assassins with strong late-game units instead.

[How to play Moonlight Diana]

When to make:

Go for this comp if you find an early Chosen Diana and have decent items for her.

Vayne Mechanics: A-tier

vayne mechanics 10.23

Hitting an early Chosen Vayne can be a consistent top 4 if you decide to play this build. It’s not very common, but can still perform very well if you can hit Vayne 3 quickly enough.

Team comp description:

This comp revolves around 3 starring Vayne as the main DPS carry. Buffing items are placed on Jinx in order to beef up the damage of your backline.

[How to play Vayne Mechanics]

When to make:

Go for this comp if you find a Chosen Dusk or Sharpshooter. A Chosen Vayne is ideal, but if you can hit 3 star Vayne without a Chosen Vayne, then you will be fine.

Hunters and Friends: B-tier

Hunters and Friends formation (Patch 10.24)

This comp hasn’t changed too much, but players now don’t prioritize items on Kindred as much. Yone is one of the best late game carries, so items should be saved for Yone after completing your initial items on Ashe.

Team comp description:

This comp looks to combine Adept with Hunters to deal a mixed source of damage with units like Morgana and Ashe. Talon can also be run over Ashe and transitioned into a traditional 4 Enlightened comp.

[How to play Hunters and Friends]

When to make:

Go for this comp if you find a good Chosen like Adept or Hunter. Also, go for this comp if you are able to find Ashe alongside other 4 cost units like Morgana or Warwick.

4 Enlightened: B-tier

4 enlightened 10.23

Enlightened is still a powerful mid game team that can perform very well if you are also able to itemize Yone or Morgana in the late game. Talon isn’t as oppressive as he once was, but the comp is still consistent.

Team comp description:

This comp revolves around the Enlightened units and the corresponding carries in Talon and Morgana.

[How to play 4 Enlightened]

When to make:

Go for this comp if you find an early Chosen Mystic Janna or have good Talon items.

6 Elderwood Mage: B-tier

elderwood mage 10.23

Elderwood performed quite well in the last patch, but with the nerf to Veigar’s mana pool, we don’t expect him to be as powerful of a carry as he was before.

Team comp description:

This comp looks to run 6 Elderwood in order to beef up Veigar as the main carry. The comp slow rolls at level 7 in order to 3 star as many units as possible.

[How to play 6 Elderwood]

When to make:

Go for this comp if you have good Veigar items.

Bubble Trouble: B-tier

bubble trouble 10.23

Nami hasn’t been the same since the nerfs to her mana pool. This comp can still perform okay, but it’s very unlikely that you will win with this comp unless the rest of your lobby low rolls.

Team comp description:

This comp uses a Chosen Mage Nami in order to spam her ability. With Luden’s, Nami will deal lots of splash damage to enemy units who are also CC’ed with Adept.

[How to play Bubble Trouble]

When to make:

Go for this comp if you find a Chosen Mage Nami.

Ninja Assassins: B-tier

ninja assassins 10.22

Akali hasn’t seen much play recently either as the power spike from 4 Ninjas or Akali 3 just isn’t consistent enough to try to go for this build. Zed is a much more consistent carry, and a bit less item dependent than Akali.

Team comp description:

This comp combines Blue Buff and RFC to make Akali an extremely potent damage carry. Ninjas and Assassins will buff up her damage while units like Kayn and Yone provide great late game additions.

[How to play Ninja Assassins]

When to make:

Go for this comp if you look like you can make Blue Buff and RFC on Akali. Also, try to get a Chosen Akali or a Chosen Assassin at the least.

Moonlight Lissandra: B-tier

Moonlight Lissandra formation (Patch 10.24)

Lissandra carry is still somewhat decent, but ever since the nerfs, she hasn’t performed as well as one would like. She’s better off being an early transition unit, but you can still do decently investing into a Lissandra carry.

Team comp description:

This comp uses a Chosen Moonlight Lissandra as the main carry of the comp. This comp is very similar to Moonlight Diana except the comp runs Adept and Dazzler over more Assassins.

[How to play Moonlight Lissandra]

When to make:

Only go for this comp if you find a Chosen Moonlight Lissandra. Having good items will help, but the Chosen is absolutely necessary.

6 Duelists: B-tier

6 duelists 10.23

Duelist comps are still quite popular, but we don’t believe the performance for Duelist comps match the popularity. Yasuo can definitely lead to an early game win streak, but the comp is quite inflexible compared to others and is simply less consistent.

Team comp description:

This comp revolves around the 6 Duelist synergy to beef up carries like Yasuo who is ideally 3 starred.

[How to play 6 Duelists]

When to make:

Go for this comp if you find an early Chosen Duelist or find good items for the comp.

Bonkey Spirit Bomb: B-tier

Bonkey Spirit Bomb (Patch 10.25 formation)

This comp isn’t breaking the meta, but it’s still a somewhat viable option if things go your way. It can be fun to play to change things up, but don’t expect amazing results every time.

Team comp description:

This comp combines the early power of a 3 star Wukong to transition into an Ahri comp. It’s a hybrid of the old Bonkey Kong comp and the current Ahri comps.

[How to play Bonkey Spirit Bomb]

When to make:

Go for this comp if you find at least 5 copies of Wukong early on. This will allow you to slow roll for Wukong 3 and win streak into your final comp.

Methodology

We evaluate compositions based on 3 key factors:

  • Consistency: How well does this comp perform from game to game and how reliably can you build towards it given a reasonable start?
  • Overall strength: If you do successfully complete the comp, how does it match up against other comps, especially those most prevalent in the meta?
  • Flexibility: Can you make tweaks and adjustments to the comp while events unfold differently in game? These events include item luck, roll luck, and enemy units.

The combination of these three factors allows us to define team compositions as S, A, or B. The ones that have all three will lean toward S, those that are pretty good but may be lacking in some areas will lean towards B.
