Yordles in Teamfight Tactics

Six already well-known Yordles appear in Set 6 Teamfight Tactics. These are Ziggs, Poppy, Lulu, Heimerdinger, Vex, and Tristana. This special Yordle trait which is a built-in reroll will make a random free Yordle appear on your bench after a combat. Also, at 3 or more Yordles, it will be given a player one free Yordle that does not yet have 3-Stars. At 6, Yordle’s mana cost will be reduced. 

Hidden Tip: The Yordles have become extremely strong in the latest Set 6 of Teamfight Tactics, with a new buff we couldn’t go before in this game. 

The most vital asset of the Yordle champions is that they can get the three-star units in a relatively short time. With that, their power grows rapidly and becomes a threat to other players. A lot of players have already found winning tactics – with Yordles, and they can get S grade really easy. 

With their Yordle synergy bonus, they can quickly and easily turn the game in their favor, so be careful. In order to have a chance against Yordles, you need to have good tactics before Yordle gets this three star bonus that can get you in trouble.

Enemy players will play by spending gold as soon as possible in order to buy all Yordles they can, so maybe you can try the new Slow Roll strategy, which is becoming quite popular among Teamfight Tactics players. This is, of course, in case the Yordles don’t kick you out of the game before you save enough money to buy much more robust and more expensive items.

You have to keep in mind that Yordles in Teamfight Tactics are only seemingly harmless; once they get all 6, you will hardly be able to stop them. So you have to play the right moves in time and choose the powerful units. 

On the other hand, Yordles can be very easy to play, so if you want to try to play with them, you have to be patient and rely on a good strategy in order for them to be stronger later in the game. Riot is still experimenting with champions and updates, so there is a good chance that some of these champions will be buffed or nerfed in the future. 

However, this guide can be helpful if you want to beat these fluffy little creatures once and for all; just follow the instructions in the text.

Final Thoughts

Let’s sort out everything we said today about Yordles in Teamfight Tactics Set 6. So, as you know, Yordles are little cute creatures that we don’t like because we have bad experiences (at least most players have bad experiences) with them in League of Legends games. In Teamfight Tactics Set 6, new champions arrived, including 6 Yordles. 

Tristana, Lulu, Ziggs, Poppy, Vex, and Heimerdinger all came around to make your life miserable. Well, not everything has to be so bad; we found a way to defeat these beings, just remember a few tips.

Against Yordles is best to pick the Bruisers and the Assasins, which we listed above. Also, we have listed items that will also serve to make this fight the last one for the Yordles. Pick some of the above champions and buy some of the items, and you will be good once the fight starts.

Not to forget, at the very end, this is a guide that is useful exclusively for the current Teamfight Tactics Set 6, which came with new mechanics, units, and champions. So you can use everything you read in the guide while Set 6 lasts because Riot tends to remove some champions and units in each new Set. Good luck, and have fun beating those Yordles!
