When is the Arcane Silco coming to Teamfight Tactics?
After finishing the Netflix series Arcane, I now feel comfortable talking about it and all the upcoming news surrounding it. First, let me fix this, I absolutely loved the series. I also happen to love Teamfight Tactics, so you can imagine my excitement knowing that one of the series’ coolest characters, Silco, is coming to the game.
Riot announced earlier this month that Silco, who did not exist (at least as far as fans know) in the League of Legends universe before the series, would make its in-game debut in TFT with the mid-game update. -journey. in February.
Who is Silco in Arcane?
As mentioned above, Silco is a powerful crime lord in the underground city. He is the main antagonist of Arcane, fighting for Zaun’s independence from Piltover and doing literally anything to achieve his goal.
Silco is primarily responsible for producing Shimmer, building his entire criminal empire on the back of selling this addictive drug. As a rough guide, Shimmer has a variety of uses, including its ability to heal serious wounds and even revive victims of near-fatal wounds. It can also be used to increase a person’s strength or grant them super speed. There are, however, negative effects, including permanent damage and disfigurement of the body.
I won’t go into the whole story of Silco as I highly recommend you watch the series to learn more about him.
When is Silco coming to TFT?
Riot said Silco will be coming to Teamfight Tactics with the Gizmos & Gadgets mid-game update in February. Looking at Riot’s patch schedule for TFT, it looks like there are two scheduled for February 2022: February 2 and February 16. I assume the mid-term update will drop on one of these dates.
What are Silco’s capabilities and kit in TFT?
When Riot announced Silco’s arrival in TFT, it was still fairly early in production. Usually League of Legends champions are suited to fit into TFT. As he is the first independent Teamfight Tactics character in League of Legends, the team had to build him from scratch. Here’s a first look at Silco’s rigging and animations so far.
We don’t yet know what his kit will be or if he will align with any of the current classes or features in Gizmos & Gadgets. However, Riot teased that he would be a “mastermind” when it comes to combat.
Silco is best known for his use of Shimmer, so it’s entirely possible that could play a big role in his character’s kit. Maybe a new trait based on the concept of Shimmer will be introduced. He also wields a dagger at several points in the series, so perhaps that will be his main weapon.
