Twisted Fate Build
Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Fancy Story Intro
You are Twisted Fate. You sit at your end of the poker table in the saloon. You look confident, your hand is amazing... but of course... when is it not? Your opponent, Graves a veteran Poker player but has never faced Fate before sits at the other end with a dwindling stack of chips. He also looks confident, but Graves is known to have an astounding poker face. Fate of course knew the cards where on his side, but Graves concerned him. He look so sure of himself, but he will be forced into an all in by the blinds the next hand... it makes no sense. He did not want to loose this match up, he couldn't less his reputation be ruined. So, he did what he did best, and has decided to never loose a fair game. A spectral eyeball appears way above graves out of sight. Fate found the reason... two aces.
This was bad for Fate, for he as well had two aces in his hand... sure the two may not be legitimate, but he had two aces. If the flop gave up an ace he would be caught.
Before this could happen however, Graves's support, Sona gave him a message mentally. He immediately looks up and catches the spectral eyeball.
He grabs his shotgun and aims down the barrel at the fellow outlaw.
Fate commanded the cards to his side and prepared himself. But before this could happen, Catelin steps in.
"Don't take this out in my town. Go to the Fields of Justice."
Now, Twisted Fate is in Bottom lane with Blitscrank at his side. Will fate be on his side as he tries the ADC role?
Hello everyone! My name is Tomiix Star, and I am presenting you with my first guide, about the champion Twisted Fate.
Now, I am not usually a Twisted Fate player, but after screwing around with some friends saying that I was going to ADC as Twisted Fate... I found out that it was actually good... really good. So good in fact, that I felt compelled to make a guide for him.
This will describe the basics of a ADC Twisted Fate. Please be advised that if you do not have a basic understanding of his mechanics, that is okay. For ADC Twisted is more simple in the form of his use of spells then AP. However it is much harder to lane as him bot in general, so I also advice you to play other ADC roles first. I am not ranked... I'm not even level 30 yet, but with my experience so far and the help of the community this champion can be risen to good ADC status. Cause hell, if I can do it, whats stopping a pro?
Now, I am no pro with Rune pages, and I rarely have enough IP for them for I'm into buying champions over runes, but if I could get runes I would probably use these.
Greater Mark of Mana
Greater Seal of Mana Regeneration
Greater Glyph of Mana Regeneration
Greater Quintessence of Ability Power
On ADC TF, you will be abusing your E's passive's extra damage.
This extra damage with the edition of Criticals will destroy your opponents. You will be playing TF as a duelist, and will have to also survive against a variety of champions 1v1 or 2v1 so the lifesteal will also benefit you in your efforts.
Now, with TF his skill set when it comes to AD is very simple.
So allow me to explain each skill and how you should level it.
Decent ability for AP Twisted Fate. But the fact that it scales off of ap is a no no. You put one point in this skill early... like level 4 but then you avoid it like the plague until you can't max anything else.
You rarely use this skill unless you need that last bit of damage to finish off a guy.
Pick A Card
Excellent utility and what makes him such a strong presence in lane. If you have a aggressive support, or one with good cc this puts the icing on top of the cake. You pick this skill first and max it second. This is the skill that makes you viable because of Gold Card. (His Stun) I would even say you shouldn't concern yourself with the other cards because blue card is only good for mid farming if your going ap, and red has such a weak slow/aoe its not worth the control a stun gives.
Picking it first also allows you more options if your jungle is being invaded or you are invading.
Someone wonders over to check your invade? Gold Card and get yourself that delicious first blood.
Blitzcrank pulls there adc into you? Wait for his combo to finish and then add the Gold Card to almost always score a kill early game.
The reason why you build attack speed. Max this first. The bonus damage is amazing, and makes you slightly more viable even if they have people building armor. This also gives you increased speed, putting you into critical city.
Twisted Fate's signature move. Put a point into it whenever its available. This is good for getting back into lane, going behind their tower to finish a kill, giving your team vision, escaping, and generally getting the upper hands on your opponents.
Pros / Cons
After going through everything, lets review the pros and cons of this Champ to make sure that you understand what you are getting into. You weigh these yourself and then decide if ADC Twisted Fate is meant for you.
TONS OF DAMAGE
Passive gives him more gold, making up for lost farm during high pressure situations.
Really weak by himself
Needs competent support with cc
IF he fails, he fails hard
Basically has a skill he can't even use.
Twisted Fate is a very Team work focused guy. He can't do much without his team. Especially ADC Fate, which is why I usually only play him with friends.
Like I have stressed before, Fate needs a support that can control the opponent and peel for him at the same time. Good champs I can think of that could fill the support role well are as follows.
This is just cruel. You pulls the guy out and ol' Blitzy combos him. When he survives this and thinks he is home free... hit em
Thresh does this as well.
If you have any other support suggestions feel free to bring them up.
So, thanks for reading my first guide. If you have any suggestions for me when it comes to guide making or ADC Twisted Fate it is welcomed in discussion. I will be posting a gameplay video soon of me doing an astounding 25/13 game as Twisted Fate.
