Shores of Orion's Build for Twisted Fate.
After looking into so many TF builds, I have created this to which I think is to the maximum potential of the champion.
(Note: The below information is not my own work. This is only here for my educational purposes of learning this champion. Thank you whoever created the below!)
The spells you choose here don't really matter a whole lot for this build. I find ghost comes in handy when I over commit to a kill or use my ult to get a quick kill but need to get the hell out of there afterwards! =D. I chose exhaust cause... who wants to chase enemies? In the end, just choose whatever fits your play style the most.
I favor the attack speed for slapping enemies with "Sword of the Divines" passive and "Stacked Deck" skill early for fast money. I chose the dodge seal's to synergize with our choices in the defensive mastery and to help chase heroes.
SideNote: If you find that the extra attack speed runes aren't needed since you get a ton from your items, feel free to swap them out with +crit runes or any other runes that fit your playstyle.
Berserkers Greaves--25%More attack speed... what's not to like.
Sword of the Divine--Ungodly 55% attack speed and on every 4th hit you inflict 100 magic dmg to your target. CORE ITEM!!
Madreds Bloodrazor-- 30 attack damage, +25 armor and 40% more attack speed. Oh, and it does 4% of your enemies Max health in damage! Good thing we attack fast! CORE ITEM!!
Starks Fervor--45% more attack speed (25% for yourself + 20% for you and your teammates), life steal and lowers armor of nearby champions by 25.
Wit's End--40% attack speed, +30 magic resistance and zaps 42 mana from your target and uses it as damage! More reason for great attack speed!
Malady--50% attack speed, 15% life steal and +5 dmg per attack!
There's a lot of damage going on per hit with these items and it's quite fun to watch!
Gameplay and Item Order:
The first thing that you're going to want to go for is the "Sword of the Divine". This item Synergizes well with TF's "Stacked Deck" skill and will increase your attack speed to boot. If you pick this up early enough you should be able to nab a few kills from unsuspecting heroes to net you some gold for your "Berserker's Greaves" and your next item "Madreds Razor". This item is a pre-requisite for "Madred's Bloodrazor" and will give you some extra armor and a quick way to kill the lizard for a buff.
On your way to picking up "Madred's Bloodrazor", make sure to grab each item 1 by 1 and focus on the attack speed items first. This will guarantee that you're getting the most out of your "Stacked Deck" and "Sword of Divine" synergies which are going to make up for most of your damage. After picking up "Madreds BloodRazor" you become a big threat to tanks and squishies alike. If you find that your survivability isn't very high, i'd recommend picking up a couple of "Vampiric Scepters" which will be used for your next set of items.
The items listed before here are your CORE ITEMS and should be picked up first before the end game items. I should also mention that you can go about picking up these late game items in whatever order you choose based on how the game is proceeding. If there's alot of ability power heroes and you want to increase your dmg and attack speed a bit more while lowering their mana pool... pick up "Wit's End" first. If you need lifesteal and want to help your team out, pick up "Starks Fervor". If you want more attack speed and more bonus damage from your quick attacks... pick up "Malady". Again, it doesn't really matter what order you pick them up in as long as it helps with the situation you find yourself and your team in.
To wrap this all up I must say it is quite amusing to do one attack and see anywhere from 5-7 different sets of dmg numbers above your enemy. You will kill enemies faster than they can realize what happend and you'll be able to 1v1 any heroes you find alone with your Ult. I guarantee your enemies will fear you and you'll enjoy every minute of it!! =D
My first guide so please leave a comment if I have something wrong or can improve my guide in any way. I'm all ears or umm... eyes. =D
