Item Builds List

Core Items

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.

Arena of Valor Scorching Wind
Scorching Wind
Fennik is often played in the jungle and will need Scorching Wind when doing so. Fennik in particular gets a lot of benefit out of the item, as it allows him to apply stacks of Theif’s Mark to enemies extremely quickly.
Arena of Valor Muramasa
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.

Optional Items

Offensive Options

Arena of Valor Muramasa
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.
Arena of Valor Claves Sancti
Claves Sancti
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.
Arena of Valor Slikk's Sting
Slikk’s Sting
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.
Arena of Valor Fenrir's Tooth
Fenrir’s Tooth
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.
Arena of Valor Death Sickle
Death Sickle
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.

Active Items

Arena of Valor Bow of Slaughter
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.

Boots Upgrade

Arena of Valor War Boots
War Boots
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.
Arena of Valor Gilded Greaves
Gilded Greaves
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.
Arena of Valor Sonic Boots
Sonic Boots
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.
Arena of Valor Hermes' Select
Hermes’ Select
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

Here we build up from Scorching Wind, using the attack speed it provides to tack on Thief’s Marks as fast as possible. Rather than typical marksman items that generally have critically striking in mind, here we either sprang for armor pierce to allow the Thief’s Marks to do as much damage as possible when they detonate. In addition, as an on-hit item, Fafnir’s Talon synergizes well with attack speed while additionally providing a few beneficial stats as well and Fenrir’s Tooth will ensure that enemies who survive the initial burst can be dealt with before they are able to properly retaliate.

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.

  1. My current Fennik build consists of either Scorching Wing or Soul Reaver, War Boots, Rank or Mura, Claves, Slikk’s, Fenrir’s. This is technically 2 builds being scorch, war, rank, claves, slikks, Fenrir and Soul, war, mura, Claves, slikks, Fenrir.

  2. when I use fennik, I make more builds to lifesteal like
    -soulreaver -warboots -rankbreaker -fafnirtalon -omniarms -fenrirtooth / muramasa (27% lifesteal)
    if you prefer aspd I recommend -soarching wind-warboots -ankbreaker -fafnirtalon -forstcape -blade of eterinty. This build will generate 105aspd and be more defensive using forstcape
    (sorry I’m bad English because I’m Indonesian)

  3. Currently, when playing Fennik, I build him very defensively since Thiefs mark makes him capable of continuing to deal high damage. Soulreaver, Sonic boots, Spear of Longinus, Omni Arms, Crimson Banner, and Fenrir’s tooth. If the enemy’s team has a strong mage Fenrir’s tooth can be switched for Medallion of troy or Hercules’ Madness for more survivability. My goal with this build is to be able to take out the opposing mages and marksmen, which this build excels at. While a lot of damage has been sacrificed, Fennik retains enough to burst away the squishies with thief’s mark. Additionally, the 40% reduced cooldown allows him to use his ult more often allowing him control the opposing team, allow escape for him and his teammates, and stack on Thief’s mark.

  4. Great guude, exactly what i’m looking for.
    I really want to start the discussion regarding fennik…
    Why theres no death sickle on those build, imho that item is good to have on fennik.

    Thanks for your guide once again and hoping to recieve the reply


    P.s. U are using the beast icon instead of devil’s handshake

    • Err why using the beast (if thats really the beast) instead of fafnir..

      Well u can ignore this question of the 5th item is devil’s handshake

      • This was a mistake on my part. I forgot to update the image/link when updating the guide. I apologize. Thank you for letting me know!

    • Given how limited the pool of heroes who can properly benefit from Death Sickle is, I can forget about it when looking into items for these guides. You are right, however, in that Fennik can make good use of the item, so I think I will add it to his optional items.

      Thanks for the suggestion!
