Best comps for Twisted Fate



  • 7 InfiniTeam
  • 3 Sureshot
  • 2 Defender
  • 1 Ace

You can quickly reroll to level 8 with this strategy because to the game's robust economy, and you should focus on levelling up 1–3 gold champions for maximum impact.

Always look for an InfiniTeam emblem to make it a set of 7.

Top group in this competition:

1-To increase his damage output, Pantheon has the Heart trait from Lee Sin and the InfiniTeam trait from his allies Shen and Lucian.

2-Shen would have the Defender trait in common with Garen and share the InfiniTeam attribute with Lucian and Pantheon, giving them access to duplicate portals.

3-Lucian is considered an additional member of the InfiniTeam.

4-Samira, who has the traits of Sureshot and Ace, would be the primary damage dealer.

5-Given that he and Samira both have the InfiniTeam and Sureshot traits, Ultimate Ezreal is a powerful and pricey option.

6-Due to the fact that Twisted Fate also has the InfiniTeam trait, he can inflict significant damage with his cards.

7-Garen's Defender ability makes him a formidable frontliner.

8-Sivir is the 3rd Sureshot member and the 7th InfiniTeam member which makes her a crucial pick for your combo.



  • 4 Spellslinger
  • 4 Ox Force
  • 1 Forecaster
  • 2 Star Guardian
  • 2 Duelist
  • 2 Aegis

This is a fast reroll to level 8 with a strong economy as most of the champions cost 4 gold and they must get to 2 stars at least.

Best team for this comp:

2-Neeko will be your 2nd main damage dealer with her jumping frog, as she shares both the Star Guardian and the Spellslinger traits.

3-Viego is a really strong choice as he shares the Ox Force trait, which will make him a bruiser.

4-Annie is your main tank, as she can sustain tons of damage with her shield, and she also shares the Spellslinger and the Ox Force traits.

5-Ekko is your second main tank, as he has a huge shield and he also taunts enemies. He also shares the Aegis trait, which adds magic resistance to the team, and the Star Guardian trait, which provides him with more mana during combat.

You need to find a Duelist emblem for Annie to make it a set of eight duelists so that you can get the most out of the combo.

Best team for this comp:

1-Vayne does most of the damage because she has the Duelist trait turned on, which makes her a real beast with her damage.

2-Nilah is the main tank for the front line. You could stack up 3 lockets of the iron solari, and she would add them to the Duelist.

3-Fiora can help out on the frontlines because she has both the ox-force and duelist traits.

4-Kayle will be adding the Duelist trait and dealing some good damage from the backlines.

5-Gangplank's strength as a duelist is pretty high, like that of other champions with similar traits.

6-As a spell slinger and duelist, Twisted Fate is one of the best choices  and he will be your main damage dealer in this comp.

7-Yasuo is one of the best duelists because he does a lot of damage, protects himself with a shield, and knocks his opponents up.

8-Annie should have the Duelist emblem, as she shares both the Ox Force trait with Fiora and the Spellslinger trait with Twisted Fate.
