Fennik Item Builds
These items are necessary in order to play Fennik optimally. Only diverge from a core item if you are a very experienced player or you have a very good reason for doing so.
|Fennik is often played in the jungle and will need either Scorching Wind or Soulreaver when doing so. Both offer quite a bit to the marksman, Thief’s Mark benefitting from high amounts of attack speed and his normal attacks naturally benefitting from additional attack damage. Typically, Soulreaver is better if aiming for the later game, as the extra damage from Scorching Wind will fall off later in the match.|
|Rankbreaker is a fantastic item for Fennik, particularly early game. The armor pierce that it offers will help him tear through towers, monsters, and heroes with his heavy burst damage. The movement speed that the item additionaly offers will help the ganking-centric fox by allowing him to move quickly between lanes and set ganks up for his team.|
|Muramasa is a great way to rip through opponents’ armor, especially those who have been stacking large amounts. The cooldown speed that it additionally offers will help Fennik throw out Thief’s Marks more frequently as well as keep his escape more readily available.|
|Claves Sancti is an exceptionally effective item on most marksmen, Fennik included. The combination of attack damage and critical rate is an amazing boost to a hero’s damage output. The movement enhancing and critical damage increasing passives push the item from good to great, giving Fennik a lot of chasing, running, and killing potential in a single slot.|
|Slikk’s String amplifies Fennik’s killing potential while also making him a bit more slippery. The item grants invaluable Resistance each time the wielder scores a critical hit, allowing Fennik to slip out of control and roll to safety.|
|This item drastically raises Fennik’s killing potential. Aside from the damage, attack speed, and life steal it offers, its health ripping passive pairs very well with Fennik’s reliance on attack speed.|
|Death Sickle is often overlooked in favor of things like Ancestral Glory, but Fennik can make good use of the item. Use the invinicibility it provides to roll away to safety or to get some burst healing through Bow of Slaughter.|
|Bow of Slaughter greatly increases Fennik’s sustain in critical team fights, providing a ton of lifesteal with the active. The attack damage and critical chance also helps him secure objectives faster with his passive.|
|War Boots is the most obvious choice for Fennik, the additional attack speed helping with his damage output both when atttacking normally and when applying Thief’s Marks to his enemies.|
|Gilded Greaves is a great item against team compositions with a lot of crowd control and magic damage. It offers resistance, helping the wearer escape from control effects.|
|Sonic Boots is good when facing off with physical damage heavy teams. It provides both armor and a passive that reduces damage from normal attacks, making it a very effective way at staying alive against enemy marksmen or warriors.|
|Hermes’ Select is good for junglers, helping them quickly move between the lanes. Pick this up when enemies regularly over extend and you want to capitalize on their mistakes as much as possible.|
Sample Item Builds
An attack damage-centric build with Soulreaver as the foundation. Fennik will be relying on his abilities and normal attacks in equal measure, each pellet from his slingshot able to deal devastating amounts due to the heavy amounts of attack damage he’ll have stacked from Soulreaver, Rankbreaker, and Fenrir’s Tooth. Claves Sancti and Slikk’s Sting work together to provide numerous benefits to the marksman who would otherwise be lacking much utility with this build. The movement speed and resistance that the items provide will ensure that Fennik stays moving and agile on the battlefield. Meanwhile, the critical chance and damage buffs that the items offer will dramatically increase his damage output, albeit with a whispered prayer to RNGesus.
While a much less position for the marksman, Fennik can be played in lane as well. We tried to strike a balance here between the two previous builds, giving him decent amounts of attack speed and attack damage. Fenrir’s Tooth and Rankbreaker will ensure that each attack and ability has adequate amounts of power behind it while Fafnir’s Talon and Omni Arms will keep them steadily coming out and applying Thief’s Marks and other effects to their targets.
