Best comps for Poppy



  • 6 Bastion
  • 3 Targon
  • 2 Invoker

This comp is based on the bastion trait, which turns everyone in the front line into a real tank.

Aphelios, who is covered by all those bastions, does most of the damage.

This is a quick reroll to level 8, making sure to get 1-2-cost champions to level 3.

Best group for this comp:

1. Aphelios is one of the best tier 4 ADCs in TFT because he has both the deadeye trait, which lets him take out dangerous enemies, and the targon trait, which lets the team heal more.

2. Shen is a great frontline tank because he has both the bastion and invoker traits, which decrease the damage he takes and increase the mana that comes in.

3. K'Sante is a great choice for the front lines because he has the stronghold trait, which makes him take less damage.

4. Taric is an important pick for this team because he has both the Bastion and Targon traits. This makes him a very strong tank and healer for the team.

5. Soraka is an invoker and a targon, which makes the team much more useful by giving the team more health and mana.

6. Kassadin is a good choice because he has the same trait as the team as a stronghold.

7. Maokai can heal himself while he is a bastion, which makes him a better tank.

8. Poppy is your sixth stronghold member, and she uses her shield to take a lot of damage.



  • 3 Slayer
  • 1 Technogenius
  • 2 Bastion
  • 3 Demacia
  • 3 Yordle

This comp is all about low-cost champions, so make sure to do a slow reroll with a strong economy and don't level up too much so you can get the 1-2 cost champions to level 3.

The best team for this build:

1. Kled is a good tank in the front lines because he has two lives, one for himself and one for Skarl. He also shares the slayer trait and the yrodle trait.

2. Maokai has the shadow isles trait and the stronghold trait, so he takes a lot of damage as he heals himself.

3. Poppy is a great frontline tank because she has the same features as Bastion and Yordle and the Demacia trait.

4. Heimerdinger will call up his turret, which will do a lot of damage and stun foes while sharing the yordle trait.

5. Kayle is the third Slayer and does a lot of damage from the backlines while sharing the Demacia tr.

6. Gwen does the damage because she has both the Shadow Isles trait and the Slayer trait.

7. Jarvan IV is the third Demacia trait, which will give good damage and stun enemies.



  • 3 Yordles
  • 4 Gunner
  • 2 Zaun
  • 2 Bastion
  • 2 Shadow Isles

This comp is built around the gunner trait, which has a lot of low-cost champions, but Zeri is the major source of damage.

Best group for this comp:

1. Zeri does most of the damage because she is both a gunner and a Zaun.

2. Jayce is one of the most important choices because he has the same trait as the shooter and the Piltover, which would call the T-Rex.

3. Tristana is a good choice because she has both yordle and shooter traits.

4. Jinx is the fourth shooter. He does a lot of damage from behind the front lines and has the same trait as Zaun.

5. Teemo is the second yorlde, and when he reaches level 4, he can do a lot of damage.

6. Poppy is the third yordle and the second bastion, making her a great tank.

7. Maokai is a good offensive tank because he has traits from both the Shadow Isles and the Bastion.
