Since its launch, Phong Kiem has always been one of the most powerful late-game items when it helps you disable an opponent’s unit for a few seconds. If used skillfully, Phong Kiem can make gamers win important rounds in the late game. Even at the time of season 6, Phong Kiem is an item that is both easy to use and extremely powerful when controlling frontline units becomes more and more important.
The form of a champion that can change positions flexibly like Vi is a very suitable unit holding the Wind Sword
In addition, this item has the advantage that the component equipment is extremely easy to find (Giant Belt, Silver Cloak) and is rarely fiercely contested. So if you want, you can pair Wind Sword in all your matches without having to worry too much about the main equipment group. So if possible, you should pair this equipment in the late game or get it from the general selection round to ensure a place in the top 4 and get more rank points.
Heart of Ice
In the recent versions of Tactics Arena, we can clearly see the rise of the main melee units. Challenger, Mutant squads all use these champions and are extremely effective. As a result, Ice Heart is becoming extremely strong when this item offers the ability to reduce attack speed too strongly and perfectly counter the aforementioned mains. Especially the Challenger squad when units like Warwick, Yone, Fiora… are very afraid of having their attack speed reduced.
Ekko is the unit that couldn’t be more suitable in the Assassin team to use Ice Heart
In addition, with the Assassin still existing in the meta, Tim Bang is still a good item when it coordinates too well with this type of squad. Reducing the damage output of the main enemy team will give the Assassins themselves more time to take down the enemy squad. This is an extremely powerful tool in matches where you don’t pick up many powerful items but still upgrade Assassin units.
Although it has lost the ability to stun the opponent, it does not seem to affect the power of this item. Even buffing the magic shield for yourself and 2 nearby allies makes this item an extremely powerful support item. In the context that many top supports are in the meta like Janna, Taric, Orianna… then Trap Claw becomes even more useful at the moment.
Trap Claw is now a very useful meta counter item
Moreover, if you pay attention, there are many champions of season 6 that possess the ability to affect the backline, such as Blitzcrank, Zac, Lux, Jhin… These are all real threats to the players. Your staples and protecting them with Trap Claw is suddenly more important than ever. It would be bad if your mainstay, even in a safe position, was still defeated by the opponent’s main Lux. So my advice is to find a way to pair Trap Claw at the end of the game whenever possible.
