Reckoning II Dawn of Heroes Triats list

You will see that many of the traits will stay even though some characters leave. Also, TFT will get two new traits and new tier 5 champions. Firstly, let’s discuss new TFT traits in Dawn of Heroes.

New Origins

Sentinel (3/6/9)

At the start of combat, the Sentinel with the highest Health gains a shield that grants Attack Speed each time it is applied. When the shield is destroyed or expires it will pass to the ally with the lowest percent Health. The shield Health and the Attack Speed get bigger with more Sentinels.

  • (3) 200 Shield, 30% Attack Speed, 4 seconds
  • (6) 800 Shield, 100% Attack Speed, 3 seconds
  • (9) 2000 Shield, 1000% Attack Speed, 1 second

Here is the list of related champions:

  • Olaf: Tier 1 Skirmisher
  • Senna: Tier 1 Cannoneer
  • Irelia: Tier 2 Legionnaire, Skirmisher
  • Pyke: Tier 2 Assassin
  • Rakan: Tier 3 Renewer
  • Galio: Tier 4 Draconic, Knight
  • Lucian: Tier 4 Cannoneer
  • Akshan: Tier 5 Ranger

As a big vertical trait, the Sentinel comp gives carry options with Akshan and Lucian a bit late in the game, so keep an extra Cannoneer, or Skirmisher around to hold items for the two. And if you can make it to level 9, do try the anti-lore Viego addition.

Inanimate (1)

At the start of combat, Inanimate champions summon Harrowing Mist in the 1 hex surrounding them for 8 seconds, granting all allies within 50% damage reduction while they remain within the mist.

  • Gwen: Tier 5 Mystic

Here is the list of related champions:

Reckoning II: Dawn of Heroes Set Mechanics details

The major changes to the mechanics in Reckoning II: Dawn of Heroes Set are as follows:

  • Reckoning: Dawn of Heroes will come with new mechanics
  • Shadow Items are leaving
  • Radiant Items have been added, and they’re super strong while having no drawbacks
  • You get to choose your Radiant Item, but you only get one
  • Divine Blessings are here to save you when you drop below 40 Health

We’ll describe them briefly below.

Radiant Items

Radiant Items are empowered versions of the existing items in the game, but unlike Shadow Items, they come with no drawbacks. Each player will get to choose one per game at stage 3-2 where they will be offered five options.

Below you can see examples of Radiant Items:

The full list of Radiant items consists of 35 items and we recommend you check the list of all of them here.

You’ll get to choose your Radiant Item from a selection of five in the Radiant Armory that appears for all players at stage 3-6. But there’ll be only one Radiant per game!

Divine Blessings

Divine Blessing is a new loot orb that appears once a player drops below 40 health. The contents are the same for every player and include a combination of items, gold, consumables, spatulas, and champions.

Divine Blessings are the new way to get back to the game when you are losing, offering a combination of the following:

  • Items (Components)
  • Gold (Moves everything around me)
  • Consumables
  • Spatula
  • Champions

You can choose one when you fall below 40 HP in TFT. The video presents more gameplay about it.

Tome of Emblems

The Tome of Emblems is a new item that opens a shop that includes four Emblems the player can choose one from.

With the change to Shadow Emblems to componentless Emblems, we’re also adding new Emblems for the remaining (non 5-cost) traits who currently are Spatula-less. Cause we heard you like Emblems with your Emblems, expect to see new Shadow Emblems for Brawler, Draconic, Invoker, and Ranger.
