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.
Harrow there. First off, Thanks for reading this little guide that i'm putting together for Twisted Fate!
Build one: My pure dps build
Build two: My little more survivability build
Chapter 1: Why Twisted Fate is Awesome.
Let's Face it, Twisted Fate is a Badass. And everyone *Should* love having him on there team.
Second Sight, Twisted Fate's Passive, Is Good. It's Grand. and it's Wonderful. EXTRA GOLD! we all love you twisted fate!
This is a Great Ultimate. a good twisted fate can use Destiny to Gank almost one. it's great for end of fights to get people that run away.
And 3rd: I really like Cards. that's why i choose Twisted Fate.
Moving on to Pros/Cons
Pros / Cons
Great DPS late Game.
Has a Nice Stun
Has Nice Attack Speed
+2 Extra Gold
Teleport is nice for Ganking and Spanking.
THE DREADED CONS:
Only has one attacking spell for Attack Damage Twisted Fate.
Thornmail will SHUT YOU DOWN At least until the Bloodthirsters give you 50% lifesteal.
is a bit of a squishy person to play.
What i Use:
Greater Seal of Alacrity X9
Greater Mark of Alacrity X9
Greater Glyph of Focus X9
Greater Quintessence of Alacrity X3
You May Ask Yourselves, Smiley, Why Don't you get Crit Runes and Armor Pen Runes and Health Quintessence runes?
Let me tell you why i get Attack Speed and Cooldown
First reason. Having a Built in Dagger for the beginning of the game is nice, as well as allowing you to get more Attack Damage items instead of Attack Speed.
Second Reason: Because Attack Damage Twisted Fate only has One Major Attack Spell, you want it to be as low as a cool-down as you can get it.
Third Reason: Armor Pen can be gotten with the Last Whisper and Black Cleaver Can reduce Armor, SO i don't have to waste my runes on those because if the game dictates that i need them, i'll get them.
I Get Either Ghost and Heal or Ghost and Ignite.
If i'd Going Mid, Heal is great. and i forget to use ignite all the time.
Ignite is a good thing to use when your gold card Stuns and there low on hp; i make up for the lack of it by killing them faster.
Ghost and Ignite is the Smarter way to go. Ignite is a great way to finish off people that run away. The only Reason i never get it is because i can never seem to remember i have it until after i have already killed everyone.
Ah. the Skills.
Here what he can do.
(Active): Twisted Fate fires 3 cards forward in a cone, damaging everything in their way and passing through targets.
Cooldown: 6 seconds
Magic Damage: 60 / 110 / 160 / 210 / 260 (+0.65 per ability power)
Cost: 60 / 70 / 80 / 90 / 100 Mana
First Off. THIS SPELL IS NOT VIABLE for ATTACK DAMAGE TWISTED FATE. Nope. as you see in the Skill Order, it is the last thing i get. yes it does decent damage, but because you don't get much ability power, and your mana pool is somewhat low, it just mana dumps.
(Active): Cards flash over Twisted Fate's head one at a time - blue, then red, then gold. When he uses the ability again, he picks the current card over his head, and the card picked gives a special effect to the attack. This attack cannot miss or be dodged.
Blue adds bonus magic damage to Twisted Fate's physical attack and restores mana equivalent to the bonus magic damage.
Red adds an area of effect, 2.5 second duration, slow and bonus magic damage to Twisted Fate's physical attack. The total of his Attack Damage and Red Card bonus magic damage becomes area of effect magic damage.
Gold adds a stun and bonus magic damage to Twisted Fate's physical attack.
Cooldown: 6 seconds
Red Area of Effect:
Cost: 40 / 55 / 70 / 85 / 100 Mana
Blue Magic Damage/Mana Restored: 40 / 60 / 80 / 100 / 120 (+0.4 per ability power)
Red Magic Damage: 30 / 45 / 60 / 75 / 90 (+0.4 per ability power)
Red Slow: 30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50 %
Gold Magic Damage: 15 / 22.5 / 30 / 37.5 / 45 (+0.4 per ability power)
Gold Stun Duration: 1 / 1.25 / 1.5 / 1.75 / 2 second
Ah.. Pick a Card. first off. LEARN TO TIME THIS! THIS IS YOUR MOST IMPORTANT SPELL!
seriously, getting this down is the most important thing you can do.
(Passive): Every fourth attack, Twisted Fate deals bonus magic damage. In addition, he gets his attack speed increased and his cooldowns reduced for every level in this skill. Bonus Magic Damage: 55 / 80 / 105 / 130 / 155 (+0.4 per ability power)
Bonus Attack Speed: 3 / 6 / 9 / 12 / 15 %
Cooldown Reduction: 3 / 6 / 9 / 12 / 15 %
(Active): Twisted Fate reveals all enemy champions (including stealthed champions) for 6 seconds. While Destiny is active, Twisted Fate can teleport to any location on the map (after a delay) by using the ability a second time.
Cooldown: 150 / 135 / 120 seconds
Cost: 150 / 125
Ah. the Fun part. Item Buying.
Heres what your end game item build should be
Now Let me Break Down Why The order shown Above is the way i choose to build.
These Puppies give a extra 25% attack speed. Thats what we need from them. You can Trade them in for Swiftness if you choose, but that's a personal choice.
One of the things i like to highlight as Twisted Fate is the FOURTH HIT.Not Only does Sword of the Divine Give 60% Attack Speed Now, But the Extra 100 damage works great with Twisted Fate's own Extra Damage.
This Guy gives you the last bit of Crit needed to hit 52% crit. And also adds Attack Speed and Movement Speed, which is a boon.
Ahhh. the Main Dps items of this build. Bloodthirsters x2 is great for Twisted Fate. +200 Damage and 50% lifesteal when maxed out allows his super high attack speed to destroy all baddies out there.
WHAT CAN BE SUBBED IN AND WHY
Ah. The Black Cleaver. AS of the Latest Patch, my Favorite Item has become obsolete in My Build. You can Ask my LoL Buddies, i used to be CRAZY about getting one of these, but now i don't.
WHY? The Black Cleaver is no longer viable for a few reasons.
1st: Only reduces 45 armor instead of 60
2nd: only adds 55 damage
3rd: we dont need more attack speed when were above 2.0.
Last Whisper. I only get this when the enemy team stacks tons of armor. The reason i don't normally get LW is simply because i'd rather have more attack damage and blow through their high armor instead of reducing it.
I REALLY REALLY REALLY am trying to work this in. In Fact, you could even go ahead and replace a Bloodthirster for it. it's great for the extra hp, and the slow effect is super nice.
Right Then. Heres What you do and when.
Getting Our Ultimate, Destiny, before everyone is 6 is great for ganking.
Buy Boots and Three Potions.
After that, getPICK A CARD.
Then, Use Blue Card as your Main Attack every time it is off cooldown. Blue Card actually gives you mana at higher levels when you cast it. isn't that great?
Hit level 2, and get Stacked Deck. start timing your attack so that blue card is done on the fourth hit, so you do two sets of extra damage.
continue getting Pick a Card and Stacked Deck every other level, and get Destiny, Your Ultimate, at Level 6. Talk to your teammates and Go Gank someone.
By this time, you should have enough gold to get the Recurve Bow. Get it, and watch your attack speed get a nice boost. Keep Ganking with Destiny and pushing towers, and then go Grab Sword of the Divine. It's also okay to upgrade the Boots as well at this point.
You know have two choices on item build. You can build Infinity Edge, or Zeal.
I get Zeal for the extra attack speed, and then start saving for THE. BEST. FRIEND. SWORD. Now you Bark has bite.
Get infinity edge, and then upgrade zeal.
Start farming for Bloodthirsters, and TaDa! thats it!
Go in there and kill people!
and BE AWESOME!
I'll be Updating this every patch that i need to.
And i'll be putting in strategies later as well.
So please, Comment and rate!
