Bid a fond farewell to Galaxies, Teamfight Tactics’ Fates is almost here. And with the new set comes a new mechanic. 

In Fates, picking the right “Chosen” champion for your team could mean the difference between winning and losing. 

You’ll occasionally be offered a two-star Chosen champion in your shop. It’ll cost three times its normal one-star price, but it’ll come with some extra power. These champions have a pre-determined stats buff that’s always the same.

Once you buy a Chosen champion, other Chosen champions will no longer appear in your shop. You can only have one at a time. You can sell your Chosen champion, though, and take a different route. This gives you a few strategic options, allowing you to cater to your comp. 

Every Chosen champion will receive bonus stats, as well as a 200 HP buff. Here are all the champions in TFT’s Fates and their Chosen mechanic.
