What are Dragons in TFT Set 7? New mechanic explained


Dragons are more than just a neutral round in TFT Set 7. In Dragonlands, the mythical beasts are the core mechanic, buffing players’ boards with ultra-powerful abilities. Here’s how they’ll work, and the types of Dragons you can find.

With TFT Set 7 exploring the Dragonlands, it only makes sense that players entering the Convergence become familiar with the namesake beasts.

Dragons are at the center of TFT’s latest update, with the ultra-powerful units making up the core set mechanic. They are more than just another unit on a board ⁠— but ultimately what makes your comp shine. All the best boards in TFT Set 7 will need a Dragon.

So, here’s what you need to know about Dragons, including what beasts you’ll be able to bring with you into the Convergence.

What are Dragons in TFT Set 7?

Dragons are the special TFT Set 7 mechanic, but they don’t work like other set-specific gimmicks before.

“When we landed on Dragonlands, we were excited to create a roster inspired by all sorts of high-fantasy stories involving dragons. We looked at the roster of champions to drag a couple of actual dragons, and we had so many to choose from like Aurelion Sol, Shyvana, and that’s it,” developer Matthew ‘Wittrock’ Wittrock said in a May dev video.

“We repurposed League’s dragon, and dragon-ish, models to fit into one of the seven realms of the Dragonlands.

Dragons themselves are part of a trait ⁠— much like Set 6’s Rival ⁠— that benefit when there’s only one of them on the field. With each Dragon aligning with a different realm, they’ll buff up specific champions based on their traits and allegiance to said realm.

They are also ultra-powerful units. Dragons gain triple the trait bonus from their origin, take up two slots, and boast an impressive amount of base stats. They also have unique abilities. However, all this comes at quite the eye-watering cost ⁠— you do have to buy them in the shop.
