How to pop items off a unit in TFT without selling them
Team Fight Tactics Season 2 brings the players many exciting experiences with new elements and different classes. Especially, elemental hex is a new feature many players enjoy. However, besides giving a unit elemental buff, the elemental hexes can also be used to pop items off.
Just starting Season 2, Team Fight Tactics has received a lot of positive feedback from players all over the world. With the success of the First Season, TFT Season 2 also enthusiastically responded. Although there are a few bugs here and there, it still attracts a large number of players into the game-mode.
Besides new champions and Classes/Elementals, Items are also an important thing in TFT. To have the right items that fit with the playstyle along with the team set-up is the key to victory.
But, have you ever accidentally given a champion/unit items that you wanted to give someone else or to use it later the game?
If yes, then you’re not the only one!
How to take items off a unit in TFT
Accidents happen all the time, especially when you’re in a rush putting items together or to swap a unit’s spot. Sometimes, you have to sell your 2-stars Rare unit to be able to get the item you need. However, there is another way, an easier way for you to pop-off the items just by using the Elemental Hexes on your TFT board.
With any Items
However, this method only works on complete items and on a unit that has 2 or 3 items.
Say you have Braum 2 with a phantom dancer, a thornmail and a dclaw, and you made another thornmail; and want to take the phantom dancer off of Braum, because you will make Braum 3 and want him to carry with 2 thornmail.
The way I would do it is: Right before you buy the 9th Braum, take your Braum 2 (with 3 items) off the board, put your other Braum 2 on an Elemental Hex and put the thornmail on him.
After that, make Braum 3.
Usually what happens is you get a Braum 3 on the hex with only thornmail. and all three items already on your Braum pop-off (in this case pd thornmail and dclaw).
With the Thief’s Gloves
Thief’s Gloves have always been a strong item in TFT. It is especially good with a high-level team/unit without core items or no items at all.
For example, one of your units has sparring gloves, but you don’t want that champion to have the Thief’s Gloves (Sparring Gloves + Sparring Gloves)?
The solution is to put this unit onto an Elemental Hex, and then give them the second sparring gloves to make the Thief’s Gloves. The Thief’s Gloves will automatically pop off that unit.
These are the two basic tricks to take off items in TFT without selling the champion. If there’s another way to do it, let everyone know in the comment!
