Dragons are departing as Teamfight Tactics returns to a city landscape in Set Eight Monsters Attack!, featuring a large number of new traits and a few old-school favorites as well. 

Scheduled to officially release on Dec. 7, there are a total of 28 traits within Set Eight Monsters Attack! Heroes are the overall theme for the new set, with some that may appear to look like villains. Each hero, or TFT Set Eight champion, has their own Hero Augment.

And all of those heroes are showcased in the new traits, either synergizing with others or preferring to operate independently.  

Here’s every TFT Set Eight trait in Monsters Attack!, along with stats, breakpoints, and synergies. 

Ace (1 or 4)

The Ace trait is only active when players have one or four Ace units on the board. An Ace champion will execute an enemy when it drops below a health threshold.

  • Four: Execute enemies under 30 percent health

Set Eight champions with the Ace trait are Draven, Miss Fortune, Samira, and Mordekaiser.
