Teamfight Tactics (TFT) Base Items Guide

Base Items

  • B.F. Sword:
    +20 attack damage
    This item would be well suited to Darius as one of his better stats is attack damage. You can also combine it with a Needlessly Large Rod to make a Hextech Gunblade, which heals 25% of the damage you deal



  • Recurve Bow: 
    +20% attack speed
    You’ll want to consider putting one of these on Ashe so you can build around her attack speed. Also, keep an eye out for a Tear of the Goddess so you can combine the two into a Statikk Shiv and play to her mana, too. Once this build is in full flow, every 3rd attack she does will deal 100 points of splash magical damage



  • Chain Vest: 
    +20 armour
    We reckon that Leona is good ‘un for the Chain Vest item as you can build around her strong armour stat. You can also make a Locket of the Iron Solari when you find a Needlessly Large Rod. This’ll give you a solid advantage as this item shields units around you for 200 health when combat starts



  • Negatron Cloak: 
    +20 magic resist
    Poppy is a good shout for the Negatron Cloak as you’ll be buffing her magic resist further, which is already strong. Throw in a Chain Vest to get Thornmail and reflect 35% of the damage taken from attacks back at your foes



  • Needlessly Large Rod:
    +20% spell damage
    Swain is a good shout for this as he boasts good mana and ability power stats. Grab a Giant’s Belt when you can so you can combine the two into a Morellonomicon. Once you have that, you’ll be able to cast spells that deal burn damage and prevent enemies from healing



  • Tear of the Goddess: 
    +20 starting mana
    Varus is an excellent pick to put this item on as they have good ability power and mana base stats. Keep an eye out for a Needlessly Large Rod, too, and you can create a Luden’s Echo. Once you have that build in full flow, you deal 200 splash damage



  • Giant’s Belt: 
    +200 health
    Due to his chonky health pool, Volibear is a solid shout to stick a Giant’s Belt on. Reason being, you can mesh the Giant’s Belt with a Recurve Bow to make a Titanic Hydra – meaning that 10% of Volibear’s maximum HP will be dealt as splash damage when he attacks



  • Spatula:
    No item buff
    The Spatula is a bit of a weird one as it doesn’t give you any buffs. Not at first, anyway, as this item comes into its own when it’s combined with something else. One such combo to look out for is the Runaan’s Hurricane, and you’ll need a Negatron Cloak for that. Once you have it, your character will attack two other targets on attack, with those extra attacks dealing 50% damage. Rengar boasts some pretty good attack damage and speed, so consider giving him this item
