10 Best 2 Cost Champions in TFT Set 4

Building a comp starts with some basic 2-cost units. They’re cheap, easy to 3-star capable of carrying entire games.

A popular technique is to “slow-roll”. Upon hitting level 6, use any gold earned above 50 to roll, finding your desired 2-cost to add to your composition, or to 3-star. Making sure to never go below 50g.

Securing a few 3-star units will give you a relaxing mid-game and a good foundation to secure that top 2 finish!

With so many 2-cost units available for each composition, it can be confusing to identify each ones strengths, as well as the best ones.

I’ll be going through the 10 best 2-cost units in Teamfight Tactics Set 4. You’ll be able to recognise what units are best and at what stages of the game.


10. Teemo

Traits: Spirit – Sharpshooter

Ideal Items

  • Morellonomicon (HP +AP)
  • Spear of Shojin (AD + Mana)
  • Quicksilver (Glove + MR)

Being a sharpshooter, Teemo can blind entire teams, effective against the likes of assassins and other sharpshooters.

Teemo’s damage is quite low for a damage-over-time ability and his blind can be ignored with a Quicksilver. So he’s mostly used to fill traits, most players don’t even bother to 3-star him unless they’re literally handed it in the shop!


9. Sylas

Traits: Moonlight – Brawler

Ideal Items

  • Sunfire Cape (HP + Armor)
  • Dragon’s Claw (MR + MR)
  • Warmog’s (HP + HP)

Sylas is a surprisingly good Moonlight option, with his ult dealing 1000 damage at 4-star, as well as the 33% mana increase for the enemy mana costs.

Brawlers are largely contested at all stages of the game but most players stop at a 2-star Sylas. Slow-rolling for him can be a viable tactic of getting him powered up.

He really does need tank items though, high base damages are 


8. Annie

Traits: Fortune – Mage

Ideal Items

  • Rabadon’s Deathcap (AP + AP)
  • Hextech Gunblade (AD + AP)
  • Gargoyle Stoneplate (Armor + MR)

During the early to mid game, Annie can act as a competent front-liner, so long as the Mage trait is active.

Shielding herself twice can double her health bar, while also dealing some decent damage. Alongside AP items and a tanky one for bonus stats, she’ll serve you well until the very late game.

For mage builds that have a more traditional front-line, she can keep assassins and shades at bay. Positioning is very important with Annie.


7. Pyke

Traits: Cultist – Assassin

Ideal Items

  • Spear of Shojin (AD + Mana)
  • Quicksilver (Glove + MR)
  • Jewelled Gauntlet (Glove + AP)

Early on, Pyke is one of the best units in the game. His stun hitbox is bizarre but extremely effective, as well as providing decent damage. With the assassin bonus, his spell can crit. Mix him with an early cultist/moonlight build for easy win-streaking into the mid-game.

As a 3-star, he can work decently into the late game if you manage to get 9 cultists and the above items.


6. Vi

Traits: Warlord – Brawler

Ideal Items

  • Rabadon’s Deathcap (AP + AP)
  • 2 x Titan’s Resolve (Attack Speed + Armor)

Vi is sleeper strong, with high base damages on her ability as well as innate tankiness with the warlord or brawler traits. Rapid Fire Cannon is another good option as an item, but you really need her to ult multiple times.

Even without items, Vi should be considered for more compositions for her armor shred on its own!


5. Thresh

Traits: Dusk – Vanguard

Ideal Items

  • Warmog’s (HP + HP)
  • Dragon’s Claw (MR + MR)
  • Thornmail (Armor + Armor)

Providing a base shield amount of 750 at 3-star is impressive, even more so when you consider it can shield several allied units.

Where he really shines is in a Dusk build, as his shield becomes far stronger and he can act as a solo front-liner.

For vanguards in general, having a ranged option is beneficial to keep units from blobbing up. Overall, Thresh is a welcome addition to Teamfight Tactics.


4. Hecarim

Traits: Elderwood – Vanguard

Ideal Items

  • Thief’s Gloves (Glove + Glove)


  • Titan’s Resolve (Attack Speed + Armor)
  • Thornmail (Armor + Armor)
  • Dragon’s Claw (MR + MR)

If you remember Mordekaiser from Set 3, Hecarim is the closest thing we have right now. Very tanky, decent damage over time and self-sustain. 

He works well with almost anything other than attack speed/damage items. So if you’re building Elderwood or Vanguards, make sure you get him 3-starred so you can give him your spare items!


3. Jarvan IV

Traits: Warlord – Keeper

Ideal Items

  • Gargoyle Stoneplate (MR + Armor)
  • Dragon’s Claw (MR + MR)
  • Thornmail (Armor + Armor)

With the warlord trait, a 3-star Jarvan can deal a surprising amount of damage with his ult. Displacing himself to the enemy back-line makes him a sort of pseudo-assassin. 

You’ll want him right in the front-line so he can ult as soon as possible. Or as a secondary front-line unit with more damage based items like Ionic Spark and Sunfire Cape.


2. Aphelios

Traits: Moonlight – Hunter

Ideal Items:

  • 2 x Stattik Shiv (Attack Speed + Mana)
  • Guardian Angel (Armor + AD)

Since set 4’s release on the PBE, Aphelios has been one of the key carries you can get early on. 

He needs attack speed, as his turrets attack at the same rate as he does. They also proc Stattik Shiv which provides some crazy AoE damage.

Many players prefer the Guardian Angel/Guinsoo’s Rageblade/Quicksilver combo which is also good. 

Just don’t build him crit items!


1. Zed

Zed, the most fun assassin in League of Legends!

Traits: Ninja – Shade

Ideal Items

  • Rapid Firecannon (Attack Speed + Attack Speed)
  • Quicksilver (MR + Glove)
  • Guinsoo’s Rageblade (Attack Speed + AP)

Having a full competitive build based around him says a lot, slow rolling at level 5 or 6 to get your Zed 3-starred is a great method of securing a win-streak.

Since there is no chosen ninja option, every chosen Zed you find will be shade. 

Run him with the 4 spirit trait for maximum effectiveness. He’ll constantly slice every enemy unit to bits, thanks to the insane attack speed buffs he gets!
