Champion Background Strategy Skins & Trivia

Skill usage

  • Love Tap.png Love Tap allows Miss Fortune to deal extra damage whenever she switches targets. Using the bonus damage makes last-hitting and harassing easier, but be wary of overextending.
  • Miss Fortune Miss Fortune ramps up movement speed with Strut.png Strut if she isn't attacked by an enemy unit. Avoid getting hit to keep the passive. This is exceptional when it comes to reaching lanes or closing distances fast, especially when it is levelled up.
  • Use Double Up.png Double Up to harass enemy champions. Casting it on an enemy minion or champion if an enemy champion are behind them will result in it bouncing off towards them for extra damage, especially if they are not marked by Love Tap.png Love Tap.
    • Using Double Up.png Double Up as a final blow, on a minion or enemy champion, increases the damage for the upcoming target it hits.
  • Double Up.png Double Up can hit enemies in bushes, even without vision. Use this to your advantage by bouncing it off a visible minion/enemy champion, in the champion's vicinity.
  • Use Strut.png Strut's active component to take down turrets faster. Since the attack speed buff does not last very long, try to attack different targets in between turret attacks to maintain its duration.
  • Miss Fortune Miss Fortune's abilities allow her to clear minions faster than many other champions, but needs to farm a lot of gold in order to be successful against other champions. Make It Rain.png Make It Rain can and should be used all game to farm weak groups of minions, but should be used sparingly in the early game due to its mana cost. Bullet Time.png Bullet Time will instantly destroy even large groups of minions, but it is usually better to save it for team-fights due to its long cooldown, unless a tower or inhibitor is in severe danger from minion waves.
  • Make It Rain.png Make It Rain slows enemy units, including champions. Use it to prevent low-health enemy champions from escaping and get your teammates an extra kill, or fire it behind you while running (with caution) to slow enemy pursuers.
  • Make It Rain.png Make It Rain has a noticeable cast time when activated, so be cautious when using it to run away from an opponent. You can compensate for the loss of movement by using Ghost.png Ghost or Flash.png Flash.
  • Make It Rain.png Make It Rain provides sight where it is activated, so use it on brush or gank spots to avoid being ganked.
  • Use Make It Rain.png Make It Rain before using Bullet Time.png Bullet Time to keep your enemies in Bullet Time.png Bullet Time's area of effect.
  • Bullet Time.png Bullet Time is able to go through walls; use it to surprise tower-hugging enemies.
  • Also, take advantage of an ally stun or snare, like Curse of the Sad Mummy.png Curse of the Sad Mummy or Dazzle.png Dazzle
  • Bullet Time.png Bullet Time is a channeling ability, so a stun or a silence can interrupt it. Be sure that you are out of range to enemy champions with Crowd Control while casting Bullet Time.png Bullet Time so that it can not be interrupted.
  • Most of Miss Fortune Miss Fortune's abilities are strongest in mid game. Bullet Time.png Bullet Time is almost unstoppable at level 6, and it scales very well with AD by level 18. However, the damage from Double Up drops towards the late game, and she becomes more reliant on autoattacks as the game progresses. Use her timing effectively by pushing hard in mid-game so that Miss Fortune Miss Fortune is prepared for the item-heavy endgame she needs.
  • Her ultimate is great for stealing Baron Nashor, but be sure to use it quickly.
  • Given Miss Fortune Miss Fortune's high movement speed from Strut.png Strut, she could do a "hit and run" tactic to bully her lane opponent, which is attainable by maxing out Double Up.png Double Up. Let the passive charge up, rush toward the enemy, hit them with Double Up.png Double Up and run! This tactic becomes easier to pull off when levels are put into Strut.png Strut.

Build usage

Miss Fortune Miss Fortune is a team-oriented Marksman that can be played in different ways, offering her team an array of options few other Marksmen can match with superb damage. In exchange, she trades any escape mechanism and safety, making her very vulnerable during team fights and, overall, an easy target to focus. 

  • Being a strong bully in lane, Miss Fortune Miss Fortune benefits from attack damage greatly. Sometimes a Doran&#039;s Blade item.png Doran's Blade or two can set her ahead due to sustain and bonus health. Given her natural dominance in the early stage of the game, any small lead can become a big advantage for Miss Fortune Miss Fortune.
    • Alternatively, Cull item.png Cull can be bought as a substitute of she needs the extra gold income, although this does forfeit early game power.
  • Youmuu&#039;s Ghostblade item.png Youmuu's Ghostblade grants some much-needed cooldown reduction and attack damage, as well as some armor penetration. The active on this item scales well with Strut.png Strut's passive and active components, and the cooldown reduction is especially useful since Bullet Time.png Bullet Time does have quite a lenghty cooldown.
  • Because of her back-line nature, The Bloodthirster item.png The Bloodthirster works very well as Miss Fortune Miss Fortune's first big item. The bonus AD is great on her and the sustain is essential. 
  • A common strategy is to build around Bullet Time.png Bullet Time by getting a The Black Cleaver item.png The Black Cleaver in combination with Last Whisper item.png Last Whisper; start a team fight with a heavy AoE CC or lock-down move and unleash Bullet Time.png Bullet Time. Since it deals physical damage in such a large cone, it applies The Black Cleaver item.png The Black Cleaver stacks very quickly to all the targets hit. This can cause massive armor shred and damage in the first seconds of a fight, giving Miss Fortune Miss Fortune and her team great advantage.
  • Miss Fortune Miss Fortune can be built as a conventional Marksman with Phantom Dancer item.png Phantom Dancer and Infinity Edge item.png Infinity Edge combo, focusing on sustained damage rather than AoE burst.
  • Blade of the Ruined King item.png Blade of the Ruined King is another good item if you are focusing on sustained damage, and being particularly effective against high health targets. It's important for Miss Fortune Miss Fortune to have enough armor penetration and attack speed in order to maximize its value.
  • With Essence Reaver item.png Essence Reaver's new rework, getting critical strikes will allow Miss Fortune Miss Fortune to regain mana, which is especially useful since she doesn't build mana and Bullet Time.png Bullet Time does cost quite a bit of mana.
  • As one of the less mobile Marksmen once in battle, a Banshee&#039;s Veil item.png Banshee's Veil can prevent or at least deter enemies from spending a valuable spell on Miss Fortune Miss Fortune. Preferred against teams with very few important crowd control spells or large nukes.
  • Alternatively, a Quicksilver Sash item.png Quicksilver Sash can provide magic resistance and the ability to remove powerful crowd control spells for lock down. Plus, it can later be built into Mercurial Scimitar item.png Mercurial Scimitar, which provide the same benefits plus some lifesteal and a substantial AD increase.
  • Another common pick for Marksmen is Guardian Angel item.png Guardian Angel, which makes Miss Fortune Miss Fortune less attractive as a primary target. However, beware; roaming and dying to enemies when teammates are at distance renders Guardian Angel item.png Guardian Angel's passive useless.
  • Hexdrinker item.png Hexdrinker is another good early pick, albeit not common on Marksmen. It helps by defending against strong magic damage nukes like Veigar Veigar's Primordial Burst.png Primordial Burst and preventing spells like Karthus Karthus's Requiem.png Requiem from finishing Miss Fortune Miss Fortune off. Also, it can be upgraded to Maw of Malmortius item.png Maw of Malmortius later on, providing even more AD.
  • Large health items like Frozen Mallet item.png Frozen Mallet and Warmog&#039;s Armor item.png Warmog's Armor are not considered optimal as they can be easily countered by health shredding items. Furthermore, the lack of resistances weakens the value of raw health.
  • Another unconventional choice for Marksmen is Randuin&#039;s Omen item.png Randuin's Omen. This item should be considered however, when the enemy team has strong threats that rely on auto attacking such as bruisers and enemy marksmen.
  • Zephyr item.png Zephyr can be bought later in the game to replace boots. It provides many useful stats. 
  • Although it is not often considered, Trinity Force item.png Trinity Force has great synergy with Miss Fortune Miss Fortune as the Spellblade passive amplifies the damage of Double Up.png Double Up's first hit substantially. It also gives her more movement speed than most other items, as well as attack damage, health and mana. The Rage passive will also allow Miss Fortune Miss Fortune to move much quicker than she normally does when catching up to enemy champions. Cooldown reduction would be recommended in order to get the most out of the build.
  • Due to the nature of her kit, Miss Fortune Miss Fortune can build through several paths and still be viable. Some items like Runaan&#039;s Hurricane item.png Runaan's Hurricane and Wit&#039;s End item.png Wit's End have limited yet realistic potential; Miss Fortune Miss Fortune can either attack three targets at once, or slowly shred an enemy's magic resistance.
  • Out of combat, Boots of Mobility item.png Boots of Mobility with Statikk Shiv item.png Statikk Shiv, Zephyr item.png Zephyr and Trinity Force item.png Trinity Force will give Miss Fortune Miss Fortune a total of 588/600/612/624/636 movement speed with a fully amped-up Strut.png Strut. This build can be considered for moving around the map very quickly, however it sacrifices some of her damage output. Trinity Force item.png Trinity Force also has the Rage passive and combined with Furor item.png Enchantment - Furor allows her to chase opponents very well.
  • Most ofMiss Fortune Miss Fortune's abilities provide AP ratios as well, so an AP build can be used with pleasing results. Although not considered viable at a competitive level, the build can still deal good damage with reasonable results.

  • Like Tristana Tristana, Miss Fortune Miss Fortune has a magic damage ability, so consider building MR/health in addition to straight armor. Armor should be prioritized more against her, however.
  • If being chased by Miss Fortune Miss Fortune and if she doesn't have Blessing of the Lizard Elder.png Blessing of the Lizard Elder or Frozen Mallet item.png Frozen Mallet, landing a ranged ability or auto attack will act as a slow on her since it removes Strut.png Strut long enough for you to escape.
