Tel’Annas Item Builds
These items are necessary in order to play Tel’annas optimally. Only diverge from a core item if you are a very experienced player or you have a very good reason for doing so
|Claves Sancti is a strong item for Tel’annas, or any marksman for that matter. It provides a powerful combination of attack damage and critical chance along with a number of power passives that increase the damage that the wielder does with each critical hit as well as increase the wielder’s movement speed each time one lands.|
|Slikk’s Sting further empowers Tel’annas’ normal attack firepower and is a perfect follow up to Claves Sancti. It raises her attack speed, movement speed, and critical strike chance while also providing invaluable resistance whenever a critical strike lands. This is a very valuable effect which can be a huge help in escaping fights or keeping up an assault on enemies during a chaotic team fight.|
Offensive Item Choices
|When the enemies are stacking armor or heavy on tanky enemies, Muramasa will ensure that your attacks are never completely negated. The armor pierce it offers raises in effectiveness the more armor that the target has. The cooldown speed it additionally offers is a nice addition, helping Tel’annas use her abilities even more frequently.|
|Fafnir’s Talon takes a different approach to amplifying damage, helping counter enemies who stack health items. Each of Tel’annas’ shots gains an additional bit of damage based on the enemy’s current health. In addition, it provides attack damage, attack speed, and life steal, making it all around great addition to a marksman’s offensive arsenal.|
|Fenrir’s Tooth dramatically raises the wielder’s attack damage, especially when attacking low-health targets.|
|As an immobile marksman, Tel’annas can use Bow of Slaughter to recover or sustain herself in fights where fleeing is not an option. While offering a small amount of lifesteal passively, the active ability it provides will raise the wielder’s lifesteal to a full 100%. This can easily keep Tel’annas up and fighting in rough situations.|
|While not as important as Claves Sancti, Slikk’s Sting, or even Bow of Slaughter, Devil’s Handshake can be a nice way to pump up Tel’annas’ critical rate even further. All four items together will bring her to 90% critical rate, ensuring that (almost) every shot devastates when it lands. Beyond that, the stacks that Devil’s Handshake generates will give Tel’annas an immense amount of attack speed once fully stacked.|
|As the game progresses, Tel’annas will find herself having a harder and harder time staying up in fights. Ancestral Glory alleviates this problem, picking her up after she falls two times in a match. In addition, the item provides a decent amount of armor as well as a 10% boost to all damage done, giving the archer some additional offensive and defensive potential as well.|
|If you are able to properly keep your distance from enemies, War Boots is the way to go. As the only option that ups her damage potential, they are some of Tel’annas’ favorites.|
|If regularly suppressed, Gilded Greaves will alleviate some of the pressure put onto their wearer. These are important if the enemy team has a large amount of crowd control and are regularly targeting you.|
|If having trouble with an enemy marksman, Sonic Greaves can give Tel’annas an edge by dampening their damage.|
Sample Item Builds
Here we try to build up Tel’annas’ damage potential so that each shot lands with devastating force. Between the critical damage, on hit bonuses, and armor pierce provided, Tel’annas will land devastating blow after devastating blow when engaged with her opponent. We finish with Fenrir’s Tooth, it both pumping up the strength of each arrow and ensuring that low health enemies don’t walk away from fights.
|Claves Sancti||War Boots||Slikk’s Sting||Bow of Slaughter||Devil’s Handshake||Muramasa|
This build leads Tel’annas to shooting out a constant barrage of critical strikes rather than the slower, heavier volleys of the previous build. As mentioned earlier, Claves Sancti, Slikk’s Sting, Bow of Slaughter, and Devil’s Handshake together will bring Tel’annas’ critical rate up to 90%, 100% if she is holding critical arcana as well. Guaranteeing critical shots is nothing to sneeze at, especially since this will also lead her to always benefit from the on-crit effects offered by Claves Sancti and Slikk’s Sting. Many of the items offer movement speed bonus as well, giving the marksman a bit of mobility both in fights and away. Muramasa is our safeguard against tanks, the lower amounts of attack damage that this build sports needing some assistance when dealing with heavily armored foes.
|Claves Sancti||War Boots||Slikk’s Sting||Bow of Slaughter||Fafnir’s Talon||Devil’s Handshake|
With this build you get the max attack speed, critical chance, and, by activating Bow of Slaughter, the max lifesteal. Even if you don’t activate Bow of Slaughter, you get pretty good lifesteal. The combination of the high critical chance and the max attack speed you gain with Eagle Eye makes it easy to kite and easy to keep yourself alive during the mid to late game. Fafnir’s helpes to melt tanks and Devil’s Handshake ensures that you keep your attack speed up without Eagle Eye and gain the max critical chance to become a late game monster.
|Blitz Blade||War Boots||Claves Sancti||Bow of Slaughter||Fenrir’s Tooth||Blade of Eternity|
With the new changes to Tel and the ability to critical hit with magic damage, we revise part of her build to maximize the amount of magic damage dealt. Blitz Blade and War Boots are there to provide adequate attack speed, while Claves Sancti and Bow of Slaughter cover the critical chance while adding attack damage (remember, the more attack damage built, the more magic damage you’ll do with Eagle Eye). Finally, we forego any armor pierce to focus fully on delivering magic damage, adding Fenrir’s Tooth and Blade of Eternity to finish off the build.
