Teamfight Tactics item recipes - best items cheat sheet

Featured post

Items are complicated in Teamfight Tactics. You are able to equip multiple items onto a champion, and doing so may end up transforming that item into a completely new one that will either augment your champion or make them utterly useless. It’s important to know how items work and which combination of items are optimal for equipping to your chosen champions.

Teamfight Tactics item recipes guide

This guide will go over all of the basic items and what they do, as well as the recipes and stats for all the combined items in the Teamfight Tactics.

This took ages to make. It's got all of the items, how to make them, and how they rank against each other. You're welcome!

Teamfight Tactics item recipe cheat sheet

Above is a cheat sheet that has all of the item recipes in Teamfight Tactics, as you would see them in the game, as well as how they rank against each other when used in-game. We do go into a lot more detail about what each individual item does in the tables underneath, but if you just want something open while playing Teamfight Tactics, you can use the sheet above.

Teamfight Tactics item tips

Here are reasons as to why some of these items are recommended:

  • Force of Nature instantly increases the number of units you can stick on the board. Extra units are a huge advantage if you have a full lineup of rank 2 heroes, that’s not to be underestimated.
  • Any item that increases your attack speed and decreases your enemy attack speed is particularly great for those champions who have abilities tied to mana. Guinsoo’s Rageblade, in particular, is incredible for high damage champions.
  • Spear of Shojin also increases mana as your equipped champion regains 15% of their maximum mana per attack. Stick this on any champion you wish to spam their skills as much as possible.
  • On that same champion the Spear of Shojin is equipped to, Rabadon’s Deathcap also increases the power of their abilities so is a natural combination.
  • Phantom Dancer is a great defensive item against any Assassin build as it negates any Critical Strikes that would be dealt to that champion. While all champions have a base chance to Critical Strike, Assassins can increase their chance.
  • For long-range attackers, such as Vayne or Tristana, the Rapid Firecannon and Titanic Hydra can make them a formidable threat from a distance.
  • Glacial, Sorcerers, and Assassins are highly regarded in the current meta, so the Frozen Mallet, Yuumi, and Youmuu’s Ghostblade are good for getting more of those types without having to search for the missing piece. These don’t stack if they already have the class in question.
  • Radobaan’s Deathcap and Seraph’s Embrace are decent items for amplifying those champions that deal a lot of damage with their skills. Varus is a viable candidate for this.
  • Void/Assassin builds should stick a Spear of Shojin and Infinity Edge on Rengar, while Akali excels with Rabadon’s Deathcap and Luden’s Echo.

Dragging a basic item onto a champion.

Teamfight Tactics basic items

Basic items are randomly distributed to you as you defeat enemies in the Minion phase, or are already equipped onto a champion that you select during the Draft phase. Below is a complete table of all the basic items in the game. My recommendation would be to search for the specific item in the search bar on the top right of the table to limit the result to just the item you want.

Dragging a second basic item over a champion with the first one will show you the item that both items will turn into.

Teamfight Tactics combined items

The basic items aren’t all that special, but mixing multiple items together by equipping onto a champion can turn it into something a little more game-changing. You’ll retain both item’s main stats and gain an additional benefit, so it’s worth investing in them when you can. Below is a table with all of the combined items. I’d recommend using the search bar to either search for a specific item, or to search a basic item term to filter the list so that just recipes appear in the table that requires that basic item.
