Keep reading to learn how you can apply this tip to your own ranked climb!

TFT Tip Tuesday: Unit pool size

It is important to know how many copies of each unit there are in the shared pool to recognize if it is possible or probable for you to hit your desired units.

1-cost

  • 22 copies of each 1-cost unit

It is possible yet unlikely for two people to three-star the same 1-cost unit. However, if an opponent is taking 1-cost units out of the pool for their composition, that can make it easier to reroll a different set of 1-cost units.

2-cost

  • 20 copies of each 2-cost unit

Similar to 1-costs, because the amount of copies for 2-costs is greater than 18, two players can theoretically both three-star the same unit.

However, this is unlikely, and players are better off not contesting each other. The correct decision could be to not pivot, pivot and push to a higher level, or play a different 2-cost reroll composition, if your items and shops allow it.

3-cost

  • 17 copies of each 3-cost unit

Because it takes 9 copies to three-star any 3-cost unit, only one player per lobby can achieve that for each unique 3-cost unit. The only ways to bypass this are through Champion Duplicators and the augment "Call to Chaos."

Generally speaking, only one person will three-star a specific 3-star unit in most games, so use that knowledge to your advantage when planning out decisions if you find yourself contested in those scenarios.

4-cost

  • 10 copies of each 4-cost unit

Looking around to see who is playing 4-cost units that you may want to fit on your board is beneficial in seeing how likely you are to see those units in your shop.

In some cases, you may want to pivot to a different composition or a different version of your composition if too many of a specific unit are out of the pool. It may also make sense to sacrifice some HP to push to a higher level or wait for another player to get eliminated before rolling for specific units.

5-cost

  • 9 copies of each 5-cost unit

Only one person can hit a three-star 5-cost unit in a game through purchasing from shops or grabbing the unit from carousel. This means if you ever notice someone going for a three-star 5-cost unit as their win condition, denying even one copy can make it impossible for them to hit.

TFT Tip Tuesday: Rerolling

These are the shop odds for rerolling units by cost and level. Level 8 and 9 shop odds are being slightly changed in TFT patch 14.9, which is on its way around the world now. Those changes are reflected in the table below.

Level
1-cost
2-cost
3-cost
4-cost
5-cost
2100%0%0%0%0%
375%25%0%0%0%
455%30%15%0%0%
545%33%20%2%0%
630%40%25%5%0%
720%33%36%10%1%
818%27%32%20%3%
915%20%25%30%10%
105%10%20%40%25%
*Bold indicates change in odds planned for patch 14.9

Because of these odds, the realistic best practices when playing certain strategies are listed below.

1-cost reroll composition

  • Slowroll (stay above 50 gold while rolling) at level 5

2-cost reroll composition

  • Slowroll (stay above 50 gold while rolling) at level 6

3-cost reroll composition

  • Slowroll (stay above 50 gold while rolling) at level 7

Standard 4-cost composition

  • Look to roll for your composition at Level 8

When rerolling, more often than not, you want to be slowrolling at a certain level for a few reasons:

  • Higher chance to hit multiple three-stars necessary to be successful
  • Higher chance to be able to hit units and push levels afterwards
  • More resources to work with at all stages of the game

TFT Tip Tuesday: Last week's edition

Set 11 introduced a change to the way Thief's Gloves work before each fight. You are no longer able to manipulate it with removers, which means you can now always know what combination of items you have at your disposal. Thus, here is a guide on how to take full advantage of that change.
