Our Teamfight Tactics (TFT) Best Items Guide takes a look at the top item selections in the game! These are going to be your generally best picks overall when it comes to adding them to your carry champions. This is more of a general look at the items you will most likely be creating. If an item didn't make the list, that doesn't mean that it's bad, it just might require a very particular build.
