SyFen – Gunners is a rare physical damage squad that is not nerfed in Teamfight Tactics version 12.14.
Patch 12.14 has brought a series of huge changes to the Tactics Arena when now the Dragon God generals become stronger and more important. Along with that is a series of 3 gold generals that have reduced AD when leveling up and the shop rotation style soon becomes a lot weaker. As a result, the game of keeping gold and leveling up steadily has become extremely popular.
Divine Dragon generals are getting much stronger thanks to patch 12.14
Even when Aurelion Sol was nerfed in patch 12.14b, this gold-keeping game is still maintained when people often look for 4-5 gold at the moment. Among them, SyFen – Gunner emerged as a top choice when the two mains, SyFen and Corki, were not modified too much and still proved to be extremely strong. So how to build this squad? Let’s find out together.
To start off in the most favorable way, you should use Gladiator in the front line and Gunner in the back row. Tahm Kench and Skarner are good picks on the front lines when both champions have shielding skills and help them last a long time in teamfights. Meanwhile, Senna and Jinx are the back row champions you should own when they deal good damage in both single target and wide area.
The lineup you should start with to keep your health
Entering the mid game, you will simply replace the generals in the squad with better picks. For example, Shen will replace Skarner, Tristana replaces Senna to ensure stable damage output. Moreover, you should also pay attention and buy Heimerdinger because the Dragon Trainer will provide a unit that is not weak in terms of damage and has the ability to reduce healing.
You can remove Tahm Kench and replace it with Sylas because the damage of the Festival has been greatly reduced
After reaching the 50 money mark, you will buy experience regularly to get to level 8 as quickly as possible. The reason is because the most important champions of this squad all cost 4 gold and the most appropriate time to raise them to 2 stars is always level 8. When rotating the shop, you need to buy SyFen, Sylas, Sona and Corki and raise them to 2 stars as soon as possible. Lulu and Bard are also good units but the priority will be lower than the names mentioned above.
The complete lineup at the end of the game
In terms of core technology, according to the experts, Nhat Thong is the best upgrade for this squad. In addition, the cores that bring equipment such as Equip Supply or Booty type recovery are also very good when SyFen and Corki deal extremely effective large area damage. You should not choose cores only for Gunners or Festivals because SyFen will not enjoy that effect.
For equipment options, SyFen will need Blood Sword, Colossal Power to stay in fights. Then you can pair more resistance items, damage … depending on the situation of the match. For Corki, you still build as a normal physical mainstay with items like Infinity Sword, Blood Sword, Guinsoo’s Mad Blade… depending on the amount of equipment you still own.
