Taara Item Builds

Arena of Valor Taara Banner

Core Items

These items are necessary in order to play Taara 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 Mantle of Ra
Mantle of Ra
While not offering the health that she usually goes for, Mantle of Ra offers Taara a lot of aggressive potential along with some defensive stats. Both the burn and the attack damage will ensure that Taara is damaging her foes and able to quickly clear waves of minions. The armor will go a long way as well, making each point of health that she stacks go all the further.
Arena of Valor Frost Cape
Frost Cape
This is everything that Taara loves and more. Health, armor, cooldown reduction, and a way to stick to foes. Her free abilities will allow her to regularly proc the item’s passive very regularly, keeping her targets constantly within hammering distance.
Arena of Valor Amulet of Longevity
Amulet of Longevity
Amulet of Longevity is Taara’s only way to resist people who purchase regeneration slashing items like Curse of Death or Tome of the Reaper. It doesn’t completely negate the effects, however it will pick her back up a bit. If the enemy team doesn’t build one of those items, this item becomes godly on Taara. It amplifies both her health and regeneration in large amounts, making her ultimate much stronger and her life force much stronger.

Optional Items

Offensive Item Choices

Arena of Valor Spear of Longinus
Spear of Longinus
Spear of Longinus allows Taara to tear away the armor of her target with each of her attacks. This leaves them more vulnerable to her and her allies’ coordinated efforts and much easier targets as a result. The item additionally offers a number of beneficial stats to the warrior, most notably a large amount of cooldown reduction and a decent amount of health.

Defensive Items Choices

Arena of Valor Gaia's Standard
Gaia’s Standard
While not offering as much magic defense as Medallion of Troy, Gaia’s Standard makes up for it with extra regeneration and movement speed. Taara will be heal even faster in skirmishes when the passive activates and be much better at sticking to enemies with the speed it offers.
Arena of Valor Mail of Pain
Mail of Pain
You can pick up Mail of Pain if there are a lot of warriors or bruisers in the opposition. This will allow you to fight against them with the advantage of the item’s unique passive of reflecting the damage dealt by your opponents.
Arena of Valor Medallion of Troy
Medallion of Troy
Medallion of Troy will stave off any magic damage the enemy tries to throw out. It is a great source of stats, offering health, magic defense, and cooldown reduction, all of which very useful to Taara.
Arena of Valor Hyoga's Edge
Hyoga’s Edge
Hyoga’s Edge is another item for slowing down enemies, a great way to lock down those Taara attacks. In addition to the slow it offers, Hyoga’s Edge speeds up the attacker each time they attack, making them even harder to escape from.
Arena of Valor Odin's Will
Odin’s Will
Odin’s Will is a fusion item that can be a bit situational in use. For Taara, it ups her damage and survivability simultaneously while furthering her effectiveness as she takes damage. Her ability to restore herself and stay standing in fights makes it easy to gain stacks and hit the item’s fullest potential.
Arena of Valor Hercules' Madness
Hercules’ Madness
Another hybrid item, Hercules’ Madness gives Taara some extra wiggle room when losing health in order to use her ultimate. It additionally raises her damage output when active, giving the warrior some extra firepower when in the thick of a fight.

Boots Upgrade

Arena of Valor Gilded Greaves
Gilded Greaves
Gilded Greaves is a great way to shake off control effects and keep moving in team fights. The magic defense that they provide are a good bit of survivability as well
Arena of Valor Flashy Boots
Flashy Boots
Flashy Boots will help Taara spam her abilities and contribute more in team fights. If nothing else, more regular access to her ultimate will always be welcome.

Sample Item Builds

Here we build Taara as a durable brawler, focusing primarily on her defenses and relying on her passive to provide her with some damage. That is not to say that the build is completely without damage, Frost Cape’s passive providing a bit when it brocs and Mantle of Ra boosting her attack stats. The rest of the items in the build give Taara some additional staying power in fights, strengthening her defenses and providing some beneficial defensive passive abilities.

This build resembles the previous build but has a more offensive slant as to allow Taara to jump into battles and dish out damage to surrounding enemies. This build gives the girl some extra damage when brawling with enemies, allowing her to more effectively rip apart those who stand against her. Omni Arms replaces Frost Cape to greatly boost her lethality whenever she casts an ability. Hercules’ Madness will help her out of tight spots and give her a bit more time to use her ultimate in fights. Gaia’s Standard and Amulet of Longevity will amplify her regeneration, causing her to constantly regenerate health throughout the game while also toughening her skin.

With a respectable clear speed, Taara is able to take the role of jungler if needed. Her passive assists with this, raising her ability to kill creeps as she tanks their damage. We get a double burn with Leviathan and Mantle of Ra, punishing those who get stuck next to Taara. We then trap as many people near her as possible wit items like Frost Cape and Gaia’s Standard, lowering the enemy’s movement speed and buffing your own respectively.

After some heavy testing (now I’m a Top 10 taara NA), I’ve found that she gets fed EXTREMELY easily. Taara with full armor pen arcana, and some benevolence mixed in with Guerrilla (x4), and win versus nearly every solo laner in a 1v1 with execute at the start of a game. I build Mantle, Greaves, Frost Cape, Gaia’s, Aegis. and Rankbreaker (build hercules if you need to be tanky). The build is called Smash and Bash. The first thing you do while playing this build is buy short sword as your starting item (buy boots versus a Marja/Airi), and build… Read more »

Name: Tragic Life Hammer Talent: Punish Build: Leviathan > Gilded Greaves > Crimson Banner > Gaia’s Standard > Gaia’s Standard > Hyoga’s Edge > Amulet of Longevity Notes: 1. The Build Provides 17K HP. 2. Farm off the Riverbird and small monster at the DS Lane. 3. Be Aggressive after you Level 4. 4. Don’t miss the Spirit Sentinel. 5. Save Ult longer to dish out enough Dmg. 6. Late Game Sell Boots and buy Spear of Longinus. 7. Switch order of Crimson Banner and Gaia’s Standard based on your Lane Match Up.


I’m surprised you still have the omni arms build I suggested on here! It’s very effective now that taara can engage with lower HP, makes her much burstier overall. I’ve personally swapped the boots to Flashy Boots and Exchanged amulet for Hyoga’s making taara a bit harder to burst down while allowing her to stick to her enemies quite nicely, and having the 25% cooldown is incredible considering how much healing her passive has now. Very very fun build even after a few months!


This build comes from a youtuber called drakbreaker here’s my taara builds For arcana 10x Indomiatbale 10x Benovelence 10x Skewer lane:DS Darkbreaker’s Taara Slayer Lane build Leviathan Sonic Boots/Gilded Greaves Mantle Of Ra Gaia’s Standard/Medallion Of troy Amulet Of Longevity Muramasa/Other Items depend on the situation this build gives arround Healthy Amount of health and also some armor come from Leviathan And mantle or ra also with healthy amount of magic defense Muramasa can be replaced with anything however if you want more damage opt for this item Leviathan+Mantle Of Ra+Muramasa+with taara’s passive enemy’s carry thought your dead? no more… Read more »


I prefer running leviathan on lane as it means I can easily secure objectives like bat


Good update to the kit, personally, I like running the top build with Longinus over Mail of Pain as Taara’s Spin allows her to keep many enemies on reduced armor at once. Thanks for featuring an edited version of my suggested kit I’ll have to try out Hermes’ myself, seems much better at engaging. Good Work!


Also, the “aggressive tank” build description is inconsistent with the actual items listed.


You should add, Mantle Of Ra, Gilded Greaves, Omni Arms, Hercules madness, Amulet of Longevity, and Death Sickle as a build. BEATS ENEMIES WITH TOME OF THE REAPER OR CURSE OF DEATH. Gives Taara Massive levels of damage by making her survive as long as possible on low HP with the Madness and sickle, while the Omni Arms effectively DOUBLE the AD she gets from her basic. Non reliant upon her ultimate, which is best used after hitting 1 hp to ensure escape/survival, but seriously, she hits hard than violet at 1 hp with this kit.
