Augments are returning with Set 8 in Teamfight Tactics and there are a few that will offer some understanding on what to expect.
Set 8 in Teamfight Tactics will field a total of 59 champions with numerous traits, origins and one ability for each of them.
One thing that the players will be excited to learn about is that each champion will also have two Augments and the way they will work.
First, Riot Games made the Augments exclusive to Champions this time around - there are no unaligned global Augments as they are specifically tied to a Champion, although they can provide some bonuses for the rest of the team.
This might sound confusing on paper but it's rather intuitive in the game. Each Champion has two Augments tied to them, one for Carry role and the other for Support. Carry Augments provide huge bonuses for the Champion in question while Support ones are less potent but provide boosts for the entire team.
Augments are selected during stage 2-1 and a player may select only one in total. Everyone is offered to choose from three random Augments at the time but a reroll is provided if you are hoping to get something better than the initial three.
Furthermore, each augment provides a copy of the Champion it is tied to. Given the mechanics of the Augments, it is ideal to get a Carry one for a champion you already have at least two copies off. Otherwise, it is a good idea to get a Support one early on as betting to get enough copies for an augmented carry to get it to three stars without any copies already in your possession might be risky.
There will be quite the learning curve for Set 8 due to the huge amount of Augments present on top of having to learn the origins, traits and abilities of 59 champions and how they interact with each other. Then again, that is one of the main draws of TFT so there will be a lot of fun to be had.
You can get a head start in learning on November 15, 2022, when the new set hits PBE.
