Patch 10.23 hit Teamfight Tactics just a few days ago. The patch shifted things around slightly by shaking up the meta to spice things up and… bringing K/DA themed little legends?
The latest version of TFT is out, buffing champions such as Zed, Akali, Katarina, and most notably Lillia. It also nerfed Talon, Ashe and Warwick and completely reworked Aphelios and Xin Zhao – though that’s not stopping Talon from running rampant. If you want to counter him, here are some comp recommendations:
Hunters got nerfed in 10.23 and Ashe got her damage reduced, but she’s still a top-performing champion despite this change. Actually, she got an indirect buff due to a change in Talon, who now targets the lowest-armored champion. If you equip your Ashe with a Guardian Angel and/or Quicksilver, she’ll be able to output massive amounts of damage before going down.
You need to get your burst damage in check. Stack your Ashe with items and support her with a Kindred wielding a Chalice of Power. This way, you’ll be able to kill most enemies before they get a chance to do their thing.
Just like we predicted in our speculation article, Dusk got the edge after the Ashe nerf. To top it off, Dusk doesn’t really need to rely on playing Adept and isn’t hard countered by it either, making it a breeze to play in the current environment.
Your core champion here will be Riven, who’s your main carry. 2-star her immediately, even if she’s not Chosen. The amazing thing about her is that she can make do with a wide variety of items. Look for defensive items like Bramble Vest, Guardian Angel, and Quicksilver to give her the much-needed survivability. Top it off with an Ionic Spark to reduce enemy Magic Resist, and a Hand of Justice.
Once you have your Riven, go for either 4 or 6 Dusk, depending on your Spatula. Adept and Mystic are another two traits to look for, especially if you can get your hands on a Shen.
Of course, one thing to be on the lookout for while playing Dusk is an enemy Talon. Despite the nerf, he’s still very strong due to his high burst damage that’s especially dangerous against squishy carries.
Enjoy these strats while they last! The next patch is right around the corner!
