How to Jazz — TFT Set 10 Trait Guide

An in-depth guide on what the Jazz trait does and how to win with it.

The new Teamfight Tactics set, TFT: Remix Rumble is the game's 10th expansion and is the most ambitious yet. With every origin being music-themed, players will want to have a sound game plan when it comes to each specific trait.

In this guide, Esports Illustrated’s TFT expert takes players on a quick tour of what the Jazz trait has to offer along with what the trait does, what each Jazz Champion’s role is and some tips and tricks to make the Jazz comp the strongest it can be. Here is an explainer on how to play the Jazz trait in TFT Set 10.

What Does the Jazz trait do?

The Jazz trait in TFT Set 10 is a rather simple one to comprehend but hard to master. That’s because the only thing the trait does is give bonus health and damage to the team but the way it does is where the skill expression comes in. When the Jazz trait is active, all units on the Jazz players’ board gain bonus damage and bonus health for every other active trait currently on the board. So Jazz players will want to maximize the number of different traits on their board to maximize extra health and damage their team dishes out.

But to do this, Jazz players will need to have mastery of the entire roster of units and traits and to know how many small two and three-piece traits they can put onto their board while keeping an overall balance of front and back line.

The good thing is that the Jazz trait itself is very compact only needing a two, three, or four-piece trait for itself, and with the Headliner mechanic, this can allow players to turn on the Jazz trait with just a single unit. After that, its just dependent on how flexible players are.

All Jazz Champions and their roles

  • Bard (2g Jazz/Dazzler)
  • Miss Fortune (3g Jazz/Big Shot)
  • Lucian (5g Jazz/Rapid Fire)

Bard is pure utility as a two-cost Jazz Dazler, Bard’s secondary Dazler trait is fantastic at prolonging fights due to the damage reduction he dishes out and on top of that, his ability both debuffs the enemies but also heals his allies. And sometimes when a player is lucky, Bard can even farm gold but around one percent of the time.

Miss Fortune slots in as the three-cost mid-game carry for the Jazz trait. Her secondary trait is Big Shot and he ability gives her increased attack speed. Can easily be used as a transition piece while waiting for the main carry for Jazz in the late game, Lucian.

Lucian is going to always be the main carry in a Jazz composition because he is literally a five-cost attack damage carry. There is no utility in his kit meaning that if players are going to field them on their board, they might as well invest items onto him.

Best synergy champions

Since the Jazz trait lacks any frontline, it will be important in Jazz-focused compositions to pick up some solid front-line units while also not going very deep into a specific front-line trait. This is not a problem as there are three frontline traits that simply activate at two units with those being Brusiers, Sentinels and Guardians.

As for specific champions that mesh well with the Jazz champions, it is always nice to pair Miss Fortune in the mid-game with another Big Shot like Ezreal who also is a good item holder for Lucian and can also be used to splash in the Heartsteel trait that includes frontliners like Sett and K’Sante. And when players do transition into Lucian, there actually is a Rapidfire Heartsteel with Aphelios to make sure players are always being optimal with their amount of traits.

For players focusing more on Bard, players can look into the Disco trait that has a one-cost Dazzler with Nami and frontline champions in Taric and Blitzcrank.
