Champion Matchups

Introduction

Twisted Fate is one of the first heroes of League of Legends. He is a very unique AP casters with a lot of utility. Mainly Pick a Card and his ultimate make TF a really scary champion to fight against.

Choosing to regain mana and do more damage, AOE slow and do medium damage, or stun and minimal damage are all choices that can change a fight back and forth which makes him a very versatile champion. Being able to regain mana slowly through one ability can be very game breaking when you need that extra mana to deliver that extra AOE dps or single target 2 second stun.

He works very well with junglers and ganks for either top or bot lane.

He can push well

He has an ult which allows him to get away or engage in combat.

Counters invis

has an extra 4th auto attack AP scaling skill that helps with sustained damage.

Good at split pushing

stomps solo queue

global op

and much more!

In this guide you will learn the bare basics of playing Twisted Fate, in the middle lane.

Of course you can always throw him bot lane as an AP or AD, with champions like alistar, sona, or taric.

Masteries

You don't need 9 in utility because you already have blue card for mana. If you're low on mana you aren't managing your mana properly, especially with sheen.

Runes

Best runes for late game scaling, you can go hybrid pen on reds if you want.

Summoner Spells

: Really useful for finishing people off, and anti heal.

: Good for catching and getting away in those really to close for comfort fights.

NO
NO
SOMETIMES
SOMETIMES

NO
It can be OK with flash when you need high mobility from certain champions.
IT'S GOOD FOR HEAL BAITS EARLY THROUGH MID GAME
YES
NOT REALLY

Good for when you die and the fight is near your base, you can effectively TP back in and be really useful.

BEAST BACKDOORING. BEAST EARLY GAME SUSTAIN VS BEAST CASTERS. BEAST TELEPORT ALL OVER THE FUCKIN PLACE.

Skills

Passive: Second Sight
Twisted Fate and his allies receive an additional 2 gold per kill.

Explanation:

I LOVE THIS PASSIVE. IT'S LIKE THE BEST PASSIVE EVER FARMFARMFARM

no seriously that adds up to a lot of gold which can be game breaking.



Q: Wild Cards
Throws three cards which deal 60 / 110 / 160 / 210 / 260 (+65% of ability power) magic damage to each enemy unit they pass through.

Cooldown 5seconds
Cost 60 / 70 / 80 / 90 / 100mana
Range 10000


Explanation:

Poke/Burst/Wave Clear/HURTS A LOT WHEN YOU GOT A LOT OF AP



W: Pick A Card
Cast once to shuffle the deck and again to choose your card, enhancing your next attack.

Blue Card deals 30 / 45 / 60 / 75 / 90 (+40% of ability power) bonus damage and restores 65% of the bonus damage in mana to Twisted Fate.

Red Card deals 30 / 45 / 60 / 75 / 90 (+40% of ability power) bonus damage plus his attack damage to units around the target and slows their movement speed by 30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50%.

Gold Card deals half the bonus damage of Red and Blue Cards (+40% of ability power) and stuns for 1 / 1.25 / 1.5 / 1.75 / 2 seconds.

Cooldown 5
seconds

Cost 40
/ 55 / 70 / 85 / 100mana

Range 200


Explanation:

Blue: Mana + DMG , sometimes it's best to throw out a blue card when you got no mana in the middle of the fight instead of a CC
Red : AOE + Medium AOE Damage (Best CC Option)
Yellow : 2 Seconds Stun + Minimum Damage (BEST SINGLE TARGET)


E: Stacked Deck
Passive: Every 4 attacks, Twisted Fate deals an additional 55 / 80 / 105 / 130 / 155 (+40% of ability power) damage.

In addition, his attack speed is increased by 3 / 6 / 9 / 12 / 15% and his cooldowns are decreased by 3 / 6 / 9 / 12 / 15%.


Explanation:


Basically it's like a sword of the divine proc, that just gives you that extra damage that scales with your AP and counts as an auto attack.


R: Destiny
Reveals all enemy champions (including stealthed champions) for 6 seconds.

While Destiny is active, Twisted Fate can teleport anywhere on the map.

Cooldown 130 / 110 / 90 seconds
Cost 150 / 125 / 100 mana
Range 5500


Explanation:


Try to have this up when you start combat or a TP. Sometimes it can mean the difference between killing someone and them living with 1 hp. Keep auto attacking people even if your auto attacks don't do shit, because this skill will be useful for DPS.


Skill Order / Strategies

W->Q for pushing
W->E for harassing

Just make sure you have 1 in E and W at the least no matter what skill build you go. Always make Q for the maximum push.

By level 9 you should be able to 1 shot ranged creeps with 2 or 3 doran rings.

Red card the 2nd melee creep + Q to clear the full wave and proceed to ganking.

Every time your E is up, proceed to play aggressive if needed, very straightforward abilities.

For when you use R you can look at the solo queue games.

Q Depends on your own player skill and luck.

NEW

SCREW ROD OF AGES WHEN YOU'RE GETTING ROLLED BY KASS OR LEBLANC GET THIS ITEM. THIS FOTM ITEM WILL MAKE ENEMY AP'S CRY AND SAY WTF WHY ARE YOU BUILDING THIS ITEM ON TF. WELL WESTDOOR DOES IT SO WHY CAN'T YOU, BE A MAN AND FIGHT THEM WITH YOUR NEWLY FOUND BULLSHIT MR ITEM THAT DOES DAMAGE.

Early Mid Late - Game

Early : CS Properly, fight back when necessary, push, use gold card to stun with jungler ganks.

Mid Game: 6-13ish, you should be trying to push the wave then using your ult by running up or down to gank either or lanes.

Gank with your jungler/

Get Blue Buff.

Buy the proper items after you push if you run out of mana.

Make sure you practice your pick a card in fights, using your own judgement whether to use Red or Gold when there clumped up or if you're trying to single someone out.

Late Game: Stay behind your team, you're utility and AP DPS for your team, if you die, then your team loses a lot of threat.

When enemy team is split try to see if you can pick anyone off

Poke as much as possible with Blue buff.

Don't focus tanks if you can help it.

Split push when you can and teleport into fights to make the most of your ult.

attack attack attack, proc those E's it helps more then you think.

Don't be a retard and feed. killkillkill!

Be a man and taunt when you can.

If you're out of mana use a blue card even if they're almost dead, that Q could save your life, but so could the CC.

Common Champion Matchups (Basically what can fuck you up)

BLUE BUFF + lvl 6 = THIS CHAMPION IS A TOTAL BITCH
Flash ult combo = you're FUCKED
This annoying bitch just out ranged the shit out of everything and he can push you back
they should just remove this hero from the game
BUT DO NOT FEAR, BY YELLING AT YOUR MONITOR AND THROWING OUT MANY RAINBOW CARDS AND PUSHING ALL DAY AND GANKING ALL DAY WILL CAUSE YOU TO RAPE ALL OF THESE CHAMPIONS.


E and ult all over the fucking place.
Not a big problem, you out range him and just constantly harass and push depends on enemy skill level.
Probably one of the biggest counters in the game. It's hard to harass him mid game and he just rapes you with his rift walks.
You can out push her but she'll probably 2 shot you.
You can out push him but he's a godly team fighter.
Flash ult and ur fucked
One bind and you're fucked. and you can't CC her. and you can't push.
She can push back and she's hard to kill
You out push him.
Can't kill this fucker with poke
WTF
You can kite this champion, careful with his W
Once he gets to mid game you're screwed so make your early game count and ult all over the fucking place.
Out pushes you, out kills you, out roams you, fuck this hero.

Dyrus = Automatic Feature. Even if it looks really sloppy.

March 29, 2013 - 09:15 PM #2

@Zaust because you dont buy it for the sake of the AS.Most people will buy it for the CDR.With btw blue buffs give the same amount.

March 15, 2013 - 01:13 AM #3

Why not get Deathfire Grasp as your first main item? I'm just asking because TF is pretty much an AP assassin and DFG would give huge burst plus the extra CDR is excellent for his Wild Cards and Pick a Card.

February 26, 2013 - 01:45 AM #4

I can't view the videos on the bottom of the guide.

January 25, 2013 - 06:13 PM #5

I suck dick at this game

December 6, 2012 - 05:17 AM #6

will you be making a new updated masteries for season 3?

December 3, 2012 - 03:44 AM #7

What do you think about Nashor's Tooth on Twisted Fate?



I know it is an "strange" item, but I think reach 40%cdr with his passive (and spam skills each 3.5 seconds or teleport each 50) is nice. The 40% (+15% passive) atk speed is nice for "e" too, and AP and mana regen are perfect.



I think it is well balanced between utility and straigth AP. Why is Nashor so underrated?

November 13, 2012 - 04:12 AM #8

2 abyssal scepters btw

October 9, 2012 - 02:30 AM #9

Good guide Dyrus! Just bought him today! :)

September 25, 2012 - 11:54 PM #10

@Indari What this means, is don't pick TF vs. these champions. And if they pick it, then you push lane and gank with ult over and over.
