Every Teamfight Tactics set showcases a feature mechanic—and Set Six Gizmos and Gadgets/Set 6.5 Neon Nights is no different. The set brings a new mechanic called Hextech Augments to the fray.
Augments in Teamfight Tactics are permanent bonuses that are added to the player’s hexcore.
Throughout the game, the player is offered three choices of augments. During each choice the player must select one out of three augments. Each augment has a rarity (silver, gold, or prismatic).
Over 140 possible TFT Set 6.5 Hextech Augments can show up in an Armory, with over 80 more getting added in Set 6.5 Neon Nights. Each player receives options that are equal in power and come from the same tier but are different from each other. A total of three tiers of Hextech Augments exist in Set 6.5: Silver, Gold, and Prismatic.
Some options have multiple versions across tiers, while others are unique. Hextech Augments mean to shift the focus off of TFT items, opening the door for flexible gameplay while also possibly doubling down on early-game decisions.
Options are offered to players a total of three times throughout a game via a Hextech Augment Armory. These Armories will appear at Stages 1-3, 3-5, and 5-1. Hyper Roll Hextech Augments will appear at Stages 3-1, 5-2, and 7-2. The total chance of a Prismatic game in TFT Set 6.5 was increased from 31 to 33 percent.
Here’s a table of how often silver, gold, and prismatic options will appear:
|Percentage||First Hextech Armory||Second Hextech Armory||Third Hextech Armory|
Players can see what Hextech Augments opponents have received, along with their own, via stationary Hextechs on the board. Right-clicking on the symbols above each Hextech will reveal the Hextech Augments. Prior to the Nov. 3 Set Six launch, Augments Scoped Weapons and Tinker were removed from the list of possible Hextech Augments.
Following Patch 11.24, Innovator Heart was no longer offered as a first Hextech Augment choice, and Innovator Soul was removed as a third Augment option. Silver-tier effects that granted an emblem were renamed to Crests, with a number of them also granting a champion from that trait. And some Prismatic-tier Soul effects were changed to Crown.
From being able to level up to 10 to free Shop refreshes each round, here’s every possible TFT Set 6.5 Hextech Augment and its effect, divided up into the three possible tiers.

Tome of Traits Rework in the Set 6.5 of Teamfight Tactics
Tome of Traits will have a clear rules chart indicating the number of tailored traits a player will get to choose from upon cracking open the item. The rework is intended to be clearer to players, but also a slight nerf.
A Tome of Traits within TFT Set Six is granted through the Hextech Augment Ancient Archives or as a random drop from a golden Orb. Determining the number of tailored (active and inactive) traits is based on the number of active and inactive traits from the previous round played.
- Zero to four active and inactive traits: Four random traits to choose from.
- Five to six active and inactive traits: One tailored trait out of four options.
- Seven to eight active and inactive traits: Two tailored traits out of a choice of four.
- Nine to 10 active and inactive traits: Three tailored traits out of four.
- 11-plus active and inactive traits: All four choices are tailored traits.
The previous rules were revamped, since they were confusing and unclear. Players will now have a specific chart to go off of, potentially offering players better choices when it comes to cashing in the Tome of Traits. But the change is a slight nerf overall since a guarantee of two tailored trait options is only offered when there are seven to eight active and inactive traits from the previous round played.
Nerfing Tome of Traits also affects the TFT Set Six Hextech Augment, Ancient Archives. The Gold tier Augment may need compensation soon.
Augments are for sure something that Riot has brought in, not too long ago and they have became the staple sign of TFT. I can not imagine a game without them and the fact that we had a couple of sets in The Teamfight Tactics without them is incredible to me.
I just don’t even remember how that used to work since they are one of the most, or maybe even the most influential part of the Tamfight Tactics game and are integral part in every composition ou there. I couldn’t be happier that riot has brought so many new augments with the release of The Neon Nights. The game is so much better and much more diverse now.
Surely this is not the end of updates when it comes to augments, and I am waiting in the anticipation for Riot to release more of them! Come on Riot, don’t keep me waiting for too long!
