They took my ship, I'll take their lives.

Gangplank, the former reaver king who was kicked off his throne, is feared everywhere because he is cruel and unpredictable. He used to be in charge of the port city of Bilgewater, and even though that time is over, some people think that has only made him more dangerous.

Gangplank would wait until Bilgewater was covered in blood again before letting someone else take it, and now he has a pistol, a cutlass, and barrels of gunpowder to get back what he has lost.

This article is a full guide on how to best place Gangplank in TFT to make sure you stay on the throne of the winners.

With sword and shot I'll take my island back.

Gangplank, the deposed reaver king, is feared for his brutality and unpredictability. His reputation is such that even the toughest crew panics at the sight of his dark sails on the horizon. Death and devastation follow him everywhere.

Gangplank has many formidable foes after becoming rich preying on the Twelve Seas trade routes. After ransacking the Temple of the Jagged Knife in Ionia, he earned the fury of the deadly Order of Shadow. After Gangplank stole Swain's personal vessel, the Leviathan, the pride of the Noxian navy, the Grand General of Noxus swore to destroy him.

Despite assassins, bounty hunters, and whole armadas pursuing Gangplank, none have succeeded in bringing him to justice. When he returns to Bilgewater with his ships full of loot, he nails the ever-increasing prizes to his head at the Bounty Board.

Miss Fortune recently defeated Gangplank. Bilgewater watched as his ship sank, murdering his crew and breaking his invincibility. Since they've discovered he's susceptible, Bilgewater's gangs are competing for control of the port city.

Despite catastrophic explosion injuries, Gangplank survived. He is now determined to regain his power, recapture what is rightfully his, and mercilessly punish those who turned against him.

Best comps for Gangplank


Because the entire team is 1-2 cost, this is one of the slowest rerolls you will need to make after reaching 50 gold.

1-Galio is the first Mascot and civilian, which would allow your team to generate more health and mana.

2-Yummi is the main source of damage, as she deals tons of damage as a Heart member, and she also shares the Mascot trait.

3-Alistar is a really strong frontliner who shares the Mascot trait with the team.

4-Nasus would take a lot of damage as a Mascot member.

5-Lee Sin is an important member as he shares both the Supers and Heart traits with the team.

6-Malphite is a reliable tank, but he can also deal some good damage as a Supers member.

7-When combined with good items, Gangplank can deal massive damage as a Supers member.


Because supers need more 3-star champions to become strong, this comp is one of the slowest rerolls you will need to make because it just costs 1 or 2 gold.

Despite this, you should do everything in your power to get all of your champions to 3 stars since they are all so cheap.

Best team for this build:

1-Since Kayle's range and damage would increase as a Duelist, she would be able to deliver a lot of damage right from the bat.

2-In this season, Ezreal is very powerful due to his usage of two talents and the fact that, as a recon, he can sprint, giving him a total of three abilities to use.

1-Vayne is the main source of damage, as she will have the Anima Squad, Duelist, and Recon traits activated, which will make her a true beast with her true damage.

2-Nilah is the main frontline tank. You could stack up 3 locket of the iron solari, and she will be adding to the Duelist and Star Guardian traits.

3-Fiora, who possesses both the ox-force and duelist traits, can have a positive impact on the frontline.

4-Zoe can set enemies on fire as a magician and summon a dummy when her HP falls as a prankster. while also activating the Hacker trait.
