How all the TFT: Runeterra Reforged portals work
Jun 1, 2023
The next Teamfight Tactics set has been revealed, and we’ve collected all of the currently known details about Runeterra Reforged’s Region Portals.
Teamfight Tactics regularly releases new sets, with brand new settings, core mechanics, traits, and origins. This helps keep Riot Games’ auto-battler fresh by completely upending the metagame every few months. The next installment in Teamfight Tactics will take the Convergence back to League of Legends’ default setting, Runeterra. This is all of the details you need to know about TFT: Runeterra Reforged.
Runeterra Reforged core mechanics
The new core mechanic of Runeterra Reforged is the Region Portals. At the beginning of the game, players will vote between one of three regions of Runeterra for the match to take place in. This voting is done by moving their Little Legend over one of three portals that will appear in the opening of the game, each with the symbol of one of Runeterra’s regions on it. The vote functions similarly to League of Legends’ All For One mode, where even one vote guarantees a chance at that region winning. Once the round starts, aspects of the game are modified by the region selected at the start of the game.
Each of the regions has one of several unique effects on the game, called Portal Augments, as follows:
- Bandle City Portal Augments:
Bandle Cafeteria: Gain a Spatula at 2-1. Units wearing Spatulas, Emblems, or Tactician’s Crowns feed their nearest ally a Poro Snack at the start of each round, giving them 7 permanent health.
Scuttle Puddle: Each minion round is replaced by Scuttle Crabs, harmless creatures that guarantee extra loot compared to normal minions.
Yordle Pordles: On the first and fifth round of every stage, get a free champion. The cost of the champion granted increases as the game progresses.
Yuumi’s Zoom Zone: Player rounds only last 20 seconds before overtime begins.
- Demacia Portal Augments:
House Lightshield: Gain a Crown of Demacia item at stage 2-1, if the champion equipped with the Crown of Demacia dies, you instantly lose the round.
