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.
To many, Twisted Fate is a mid APC that can dish out a lot of damage throughout the game. This is not entirely the case though. Twisted Fate CAN be a pretty decent ADC. Now I know all of you are probably saying no way he is terrible as ADC. DON'T say that because you would be surprised. In this guide i will walk you through how to play TWISTED FATE ADC. plz be aware that this is my second build ever. any suggestions would be appreciated.
Pros / Cons
- gets good farm from passive
- has great stun with low cooldown
- great in pursuit
- infinite mana
- card throwing animation is awesome
- can dish out a lot of damage
- has an epic dance (SPAM IT!)
- great at farming
- can get shutdown easily
- q becomes useless
- very squishy
- gets countered by Caitlyn...HARD
For runes, take SEALS OF ATTACK SPEED and GLYPHS OF ATTACK SPEED for your early game farming and fighting. They should really help in invade situations or when you need to kill the enemy before they kill you. Your other runes should be all attack damage. Take MARKS and QUINTS of attack damage. These should give a bit of an edge on the enemy early on.
These masteries are about standard ADC masteries that usually everyone has. MAKE SURE YOU SET MASTERIES WHENEVER YOU PLAY. They are very useful throughout the game.
Loaded Dice is actually so good for farming because it can give you up to +6 gold per minion kill which should give you an edge on farm between the other ADC.
Wild Cards Wild Cards is mainly for AP . It scales completely off of AP so when you're AD TF it is pretty much a useless spell. But since your the ADC auto attacks are more important.
Pick A Card is Twisted Fate's most important skill in my opinion.
There are three card colors: RED, BLUE, and GOLD.
RED CARD: deals damage (+1.0 per attack damage) and slows the enemy by up to %50 for 2.5 seconds
BLUE CARD: deals damage and restores 50 mana on hit
GOLD CARD: deals damage and stuns the enemy for up to 2 seconds.
Pick A Card provides something for every situation, whether you're chasing someone, need to stun someone, or when you need mana.
Stacked Deck is actually really good early game as it does a lot of damage surprisingly even though it scales off of AP. Use it to to poke enemy champions every fourth attack. It will poke them to low health in no time.
Destiny is Twisted Fate's ultimate skill and it is EPIC. It allows you to teleport up to 5500 units in any direction. You can use it to catch someone trying to escape or even use it to escape from a bad situation.
Now we get to one of the more important topics for playing ADC TF.
You can start two ways: Boots of Speed and healing potion or Doran's Blade
Get Boots of Speed if you need to have some speed to escape pokes and harass. Get a Doran's Blade for some extra damage and a little bit of sustain with is passive.
If you have farmed properly you should have enough gold to purchase: Berserker's Greaves and Vampiric Scepter. Berserker's Greaves are very good for ADC's because they provide movement and attack speed. Vampiric Scepter will assist you in farming due to it's damage and lifesteal. It will also win you fights if you can get it early enough.
When you keep farming and by now have some kills, you need to rush a Blade of the Ruined King by first grabbing Bilgewater Cutlass and a few Dagger. Blade of the Ruined King's passive it literally unreal against tankier champions. Phantom Dancer is mainly a standard item on most ADC's and provides good attack speed, movement speed, critical chance, and twisted will ignore unit collision! This will really help when chasing champions so you won't get caught up in minions while running.
For your next item, take Runaan's Hurricane for insane attack speed and little bolts that will hit multiple enemies at one time. Infinity Edge is a must have for Twisted Fate and almost all ADC's. You can instantly see a difference in your damage output because of its critical strikes which will deal in the high hundreds to over 1000 Damage on basic attacks.
The Bloodthirster will make you have unbeatable lifesteal and damage. Also, it's passive allows you to increase your lifesteal and damage by killing minions and champions!
In sticky situations Guardian Angel may be needed to be a bit tanky and have a second life to clean up the enemies when their at low hp. The Black Cleaver should help if most of their team is very tanky and you're having a hard time killing them quickly. Sometimes I like to go outside the box and grab a stattik shiv because it is a fun item that shocks enemies when charged up by movement.
Since you will be playing AD Twisted Fate, you don't have to worry about even putting skill points into Wild Cards. What you want to do is first take Pick A Card and then Stacked Deck. You should max those first and of course take your ultimate at level 6, 11, and 16.
FARMING, as you know is probably the most important thing to do as an ADC. IT IS YOUR JOB TO FARM! A good thing to farm with is your RED CARD. It has AOE so it can slay several minions at once providing you with good farm. The passive of gives so much extra GOLD on minion kills its amazing. You be ahead in farm in no time.
Well this is the end of my second ever guide and I hope it was ok and understandable. If you have something to say please COMMENT BELOW and I would appreciate UPVOTES. THANKYOU!
