Riot Games unveiled the theme of TFT’s newest set today, where players will explore a mystical and ancient world filled with mythological creatures and legendary heroes. While fans can expect more information on TFT Set 11 to be soon released, the trailer for Inkborn Fables promises a myriad of additions, including new champions and traits, mechanics and augments, Little Legends cosmetics, and a fresh battle pass. 

While specific details about the Inkborn Fables traits and mechanics are yet to be unveiled, a teaser trailer and official images provide a glimpse into what players can expect from the champion pool. 

One of them is Aphelios, seen with his sister Alune in Set 11’s official art, both showing off the Spirit Blossom skin, which could mean we’ll see more champions from that skin line like Sett, Thresh, and Yone.

The Bashful Bloom Lillia also makes an appearance, but instead of her Spirit Blossom skin, it seems like she’s donning her Shan Hai Scrolls cosmetic, possibly hinting at the addition of champions like Kog’Maw, Cho’Gath, and Tahm Kench in Set 11.

But the name of Set 11 itself can give fans an extra hint as to what champions we might see in TFT: Inkborn Fables. Last year, Riot released the Inkshadow skins for the 2023 Mid-Season Invitational of League of Legends, where champions armed with dangerous magic inked directly into their skin fought off a cosmic evil. These heroes would fit perfectly into the theme of Inkborn Fables. Some of the League champions that can boast an Inkshaodw skin are Yasuo, Yone, Master Yi, Kai’Sa, Udyr, and Volibear.

Other champions can be spotted in the video teaser, too. Immortal Journey Soraka, Elderwood Gnar, and skin-less Rammus are also present in the video, hinting at the possibility of them being introduced in Set 11—together with a new unit that’s possibly never been seen before.

But considering the theme of the set, one champion is expected to make a colorful appearance, and that’s the visionary Hwei. Given the thematic connections and Riot’s penchant for surprises, it wouldn’t be strange to see Hwei joining the roster for the first time in this set, casting his ink-based magic in TFT too.

Players can likely expect more information about the upcoming TFT set to drop over the next few weeks.
