Miss Fortunes Abilities

Just like every other champion in LoL, Miss Fortune possesses four unique abilities:

Q - Double Up

Miss Fortune fires a penetrating bullet, that goes through the target. This will deal a massive amount of damage to two enemies. With this ability, you have the option to hit multiple targets at once and even hit enemies in the back line, or behind the minion wave.

W - Strut

Miss Fortune increases her attack and movement speed. You can use this ability to reposition yourself during fights, or to disengage from dangerous situations in-game. Activate this ability before your fights to maximize your firepower.

E - Make It Rain

Miss Fortune summons a bullet rain, which deals damage and significantly slow your opponents. Use this to force your opponents to move away, or to catch them. Also, it's very helpful to slow your opponents. Follow it up with, your ultimate to maximize its effectiveness.

R - Bullet Time

Miss Fortune's ultimate ability. She fires multiple volleys of bullets in a cone-shape and hits everyone withing this range. This ability is great for team fights and very effective against nearly every champ.

Miss Fortune's Play Style

Miss Fortune is an aggressive and burst-orientated AD champ. Her play style is based on high damage numbers and her ability to dominate in team fights. Here are some important point while playing her:

  • Harassment: Use your Q-ability to harass your lane opponents in the early game. Keep them low on hp and force them away from their wave. Some lucky hits through the minion wave can be enough to establish dominance on the lane
  • Teamfights: Try to stay in the back line while team fighting and wait for the perfect moment to use your ultimate. Try to hit as many opponents as possible and be careful, your ult can be stopped at any time if you get CC'd
  • Mobility: Activate her W before fighting to increase your movement speed and attack speed. Like this it's easier to flee, reposition or chasing.
  • Awareness: Map awareness is always one of the most important aspects, in every LoL game. Miss Fortune is a rather immobile champ, so don't stay too far away from your supporter or team and keep an eye on the mini map.
  • Synergies: Look out for a fitting ally to maximize your effectiveness. For example, a champion with a lot of crowd-control abilities. This will make it easier to use your devastating ultimate, the strongest part of your kit.

Recommended Items And Runes

To use Miss Fortune at maximum effectiveness, you should choose the recommended runes and item builds:

  • Items: Youmuu's Ghostblade, The Collector, Serylda's Grudge
  • Runes: Inspiration (First Strike, Magical Footwear, Biscuit Delivery, Cosmic Insight), Sorcery (Manaflow Band, Gathering Storm)

Miss Fortune is a champ that works really well with Lethality and Armor Penetration. In some cases, you can build crit-damage on her. If you decide to do that, we recommend buying Infinity Edge and/ or Kraken Slayer. Of course, your build should fit your play style. And you should always react to the enemy team comb.

MF needs a lot of mana, so a with Tear of the Goddess instead of Doran's Blade might be a good idea. You can use the Tear later to build Manamune/Muramana. Both is possible and not bad on Miss Fortune.
