Taara Item Builds
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.
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.|
|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.|
|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.|
Offensive Item Choices
|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
|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.|
|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.|
|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.|
|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.|
|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.|
|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.|
|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|
|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.
|Mantle of Ra||Hermes Select||Omni Arms||Gaia’s Standard||Hercules’ Madness||Amulet of Longevity|
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.
