Teamfight Tactics Best TFT Assassins Team Comp (Patch 9.14) – Ninja Elementalists

Technically, the best way to play Teamfight Tactics is to adjust as things happen. When TFT offers you a couple of Nobles or Wild, generally you should lean into those and utilize them for early game success. However, sometimes I find myself chasing after a certain team comp before the match even starts. If that’s you, then this guide should be right up your alley. This is our Best TFT Assassins Team Comp guide which is up to date as of TFT Patch 9.14.

TFT Ninja Elementalists with Assassins

While Assassins are an integral part of this team comp, they aren’t the primary focus.

With the change to Zeke’s Herald, Ninja Elementalists have a really, really good mid game right now. With all of the damage buffs and no tier three requirements, just line up all of your champions on the back line and deal some real damage.

Spend early game buying up Pyke, Zed, and Kha’Zix. Later you can add in Brand, Lissandra, and Kennen to activate the Elementalist buff. Once you have all three, put them all in immediately. Fill up the remaining spots with your highest tier units. Remember to only use one Ninja until you have all four!

While we generally recommend using champion carousel drafts to get items instead of champions, if you see a Brand, you might want to grab him early to enable the Elementalists golem.

In the end, your team comp should look like: Akali, Brand, Kennen, Lissandra, Pyke, Shen, Zed.

Just don’t forget to put all of your champions in a straight line at the back of the placement area once you have a Zeke’s Herald. The item has been changed to buff everyone in the same horizontal line as the initial champion. Previously it buffed all units in a circle around the champion.

With this group you’ll get the following buffs:

  • 3 Elementalists – At the start of combat, summon an Elemental with 2500 health and 100 attack damage.
  • 3 Sorcerers – Your team has +35 Ability Power.
  • 4 Ninjas – +60% attack damage for your Ninjas.

Look at those buffs! That is some serious firepower! Overall this is one of the strongest team comps in Teamfight Tactics right now. It’s highly flexible, great in the midgame, and isn’t too hard to itemize.

Recommended Items:

  • Zed: 3x Zeke’s Herald (BF Sword + Giant’s Belt)
  • Akali: Dragon’s Claw (Negatron Cloak + Negatron Cloak), 2x Locket of the Iron Solari (Chain Vest + Needless)

And that’s it! Best of luck with your TFT Assassins comp! If you’re looking for the best TFT team comps in the current 9.14 patch, we have a guide dedicated to that!
