How it works

  1. You play as burst oriented Mage.
  2. You build AP items.
  3. You rush Stormsurge.

How to play

  1. Playing AP Twisted Fate build, your default rush is Stormsurge.
  2. Adapt to an enemy team. Are they full of tanks, and they rush tons of Magic Resist? You rush Void Staff as #2 or #3 item to counter MR stacking. Their team has champs with lots of healing? Rush Oblivion Orb as #2 item (upgrade to Morellonomicon as 4th or 5th item).
  3. Somebody is going after you each fight? Always getting ulted by enemy assassins? Rush Zhonya's Hourglass.

Tips and Tricks

General
  1. You can use R to execute yourself and get back to base. Be careful, because the smallest poke will mark you for some champion to score kill on you!
  2. Bait technique if you buy Zhonya's Hourglass or Seeker's Armguard: cast R and use it in the middle of enemy team. Enemies will gather around to kill you ASAP, then at the very end of teleport animation you use Zhonya's / Seeker's Armguard. You can confuse enemies and your team can use it for advantage.
  3. Use R to reposition - you can R into bush behind an enemy team, or close to enemy support/carry to kill them. Be careful!
Riot
  1. Coordinate with your allies for the best time to use Destiny to ambush enemies.
  2. Stealth characters often escape a battle with very low hit points. Take advantage of Destiny's ability to reveal stealthed units to finish them off.
  3. Twisted Fate is viable as an Attack Damage or Ability Power character, letting him fit on many different team compositions.
