Teamfight Tactics - Common Builds | Void And Assassins
The Void and Assassins build in Teamfight Tactics not only provides you with a lot of damage potential; it can also flex out of other builds, such as the Assassins and Ninjas build. Flexibility, and learning when to abandon a build for something else, is a vital part of winning matches in Teamfight Tactics. That's the main reason why I rate Voids and Assassins a little higher than Assassins and Ninjas. The build comes with a secret weapon that a lot of people are sleeping on right now, the three-star Kassadin.
Void And Assassins Build
For this build, you have a pretty flexible pool of potential Champions. Kha'Zix, Kassadin, Cho'gath, Rek'Sai, Zed, Akali, Pyke, Evelynn, Katarina, and Rengar can all go in the build. I feel like Rengar is a fall back option only if you cannot get your hands on another Assassin. It depends on how much you value the Ninja buff, as you can get this from either Zed or Akali. If you need your Zed or Akali to hard-carry, then Rengar will be vital to you, so even if you are not playing him, you should keep one available, and level it if you can.
The synergies you are looking for are as follows:
- 3 Void - basic attacks for your team ignore 50% of enemy armor.
- 6 Assassins - critical strike damage hits for +350% damage.
Kha'Zix and Kassadin are your early pickups, and if you can get them both, then you can start trying for this build. Kha'Zix is crucial because he is both Void and an Assassin, making him the central piece of the build. You can pick up Rek'Sai early for the triple Void synergy, but will more than likely want to drop him the second you see Cho'gath. Cho'gath has some of the best crowd control in the game, gets very tanky as you level him, and outclasses Rek'Sai in every way.
Kassadin is underrated right now, in my opinion. The right items on a two or three-star Kassadin allow you to place him front and center to absorb a ridiculous amount of damage. A Dragon's Claw severely reduces how much magic damage he takes, and you only need two Negatron Cloaks to build it. The Guinsoo's Rageblade will stack up against his attack speed, activating his shield and mana steal more often, and the Phantom Dancer will dodge all critical strikes. The combination makes him disturbingly tanky, and all he needs to fear is crowd control.
You also want to consider investing as much as you can in your Pyke and your Akali, as they can be real game-changers if you get them going. A leveled up Cho'gath, and multi-item Kassadin will be able to provide more than enough beef for the rest of your team to have the time to rip through the opposition.
