With a series of small to large changes of the Arena of Truth season 6.5, the meta is gradually shifting to playing around 4 gold mains. Already strong units like Orianna, Braum, Jhin continue to be popular. Meanwhile, the “new” units of the price of 4 gold such as Vi, Irelia, Alistar, Sivir… also proved to be extremely powerful. This makes the Tech – Tien Cong lineup extremely powerful when taking advantage of many powerful 4-gold units of the new season.
Regarding how to build a squad, you should prioritize season 2 units including Jarvan IV and Sejuani at the beginning of the game. They will activate the Tech effect and increase their resistance quite a bit with the amount of shields from this race. Moreover, you can also activate effects like Tien Cong, Canh Binh very easily when you have the above 2 units with cheap and quality champions like Rek’Sai, Caitlyn.
Strong starting lineup that you should aim for
Going to the mid game, you should prioritize activating the 4 Tech milestone when it will make the frontline much stronger. Moreover, units like Swain, Nocturne are cheap, easy to find and powerful even without activating the Mage, Assassin, so it will help you have a relatively simple victory sequence. In addition, you also need to prepare Gnar in the queue so that when you reach level 8, you can activate the 4th Attack immediately.
4 Tech should be the priority trigger in the mid game
In the late game, you need to roll a lot at level 8 to find a way to upgrade key 4 gold units like Alistar, Irelia, Sivir to 2 stars. These will be the main source of damage and tanks for the squad, so you need to own them as soon as possible. In case you can’t find Irelia, it is recommended to play to 6 Tech to get the maximum amount of shields.
Lineup of 6 Basic Technologies
Another point that gamers need to pay attention to is that with the effect of providing a lot of AD from the Attack system, the items that increase the attack speed are the priority when pairing. If you own a lot of Wooden Bows, this squad will be very strong when the main force can cause extremely annoying mixed damage. In addition, it is advised that you do not take too much Earn BF when playing this formation.
You can also go to team 4 Technology – 4 Attack if you find Irelia
As for the technology core selection, the upgrades related to the Tech race are extremely strong that you should get. In case you feel lack of controllability, the core that helps Tien Cong stun the opponent when launching a critical hit is also a strong choice. Of course, cores that give Tech Seals should also be obtained as they help gamers put more powerful units on the field.
For “suppressing” items, Sivir desperately needs Guinsoo’s Rageblade to make the most of his ability to attack multiple targets. You can also combine Statikk Electric Knife to increase mixed damage and Alchemy Towel to counter champions that have good control on the opponent’s side. As for Irelia, half-attack and half-defense items like Colossal Power, Blood Sword… are good choices for this unit.
