With Set 5 Reckoning, the League of Legends-based board game, Teamfight Tactics, will introduce an entirely new mechanic known as the Shadow Items in the game.
Quite similar to their original counterparts, the Shadow Items can be created by fusing some of the Shadow components. There are a total of 36 Shadow Items in Teamfight Tactics Set 5 Reckoning, and each of these items boasts high rewards but at an enormous cost.
Each of the Shadow items is risky to use, and as they are created around the theme of corruption. Hence, it’s essential to keep an eye out for their downside, as depending on the situation the player is in, the item negatives can indeed start to outweigh the positives.
However, the new Shadow Item mechanic is quite an interesting one, and it’s sure to make the games even more exciting in this set.
