Rolling for Teamfight Tactics champions is a core gameplay system that ensures players can potentially hit the units they want from the shop at certain levels.
Spending your resources on developing units and taking control of the board is sometimes the best course of action. But deciding when to level and when to roll isn’t as straightforward. Without the numbers, it’s pure guesswork.
With every set release, Riot puts out a chart detailing everything we need to know about champion drop rates by tier and level. There are a total of 59 champions in TFT Set Eight.
- Tier one: 12 champions
- Tier two: 14 champions
- Tier three: 13 champions
- Tier four: 12 champions
- Tier five: Eight champions
The chart below helps players determine when to level up and when to roll down for a stronger board.
|One-cost (12)||Two-cost (14)||Three-cost (13)||Four-cost (12)||Five-cost (8)|
|Level 1||100 percent||–||–||–||–|
|Level 2||100 percent||–||–||–||–|
|Level 3||75 percent||25 percent||–||–||–|
|Level 4||55 percent||30 percent||15 percent||–||–|
|Level 5||45 percent||33 percent||20 percent||Two percent||–|
|Level 6||25 percent||40 percent||30 percent||Five percent||–|
|Level 7||19 percent||30 percent||35 percent||15 percent||One percent|
|Level 8||16 percent||20 percent||35 percent||25 percent||Four percent|
|Level 9||Nine percent||15 percent||30 percent||30 percent||16 percent|
|Level 10||Five percent||10 percent||20 percent||40 percent||25 percent|
|Level 11||One percent||Two percent||12 percent||50 percent||35 percent|
In conjunction with the TFT rolling chance chart, each set has a meta that determines the most opportune times to level up and roll down for key units that can make up a player’s end-game comp.
Here is a standard level-up guide for TFT Set Eight:
- Level Four: Stage 2-1
- Level Five: Stage 2-5 or Stage 2-3 if seeking three-cost champions after the carousel
- Level Six: Stage 3-2
- Level Seven: Stage 4-1 or 4-2
- Level Eight: Stage 4-5 or Stage 5-1
- Level Nine: Stage 5-5
There are plenty of exceptions to the standard rolling practices. Players who are seeking to reroll for a tier-one champion aren’t going to spend gold to level up since it would reduce the odds of hitting one-cost champions in the shop. When rerolling for one-cost champions, players will want to slowroll (roll down to 50 gold each turn) at level five. Two-cost reroll champions are slowrolled at level six and three-cost at level seven.
