Blademaster Team Comp Guide
It’s close to impossible to get a strong Blademaster team going in the early game, therefore you’ll have to play a different composition and switch to Blademasters once you have at least two. Another great strategy that works wonders in Blademaster teams in set 2 is to go on a lose streak in order to acquire a gold advantage over other players, then later rolling and leveling up with that extra gold. Doing so will maximize your chances of obtaining the four Blademasters that you need, which will skyrocket your team’s overall power.
Once you’ve obtained at least 40 Gold you can start looking to transition into the Blademaster build. Having at least two Blademaster units will be enough damage as you’ll also accompany them with at least two Shadows: Malzahar and Kindred/Sion preferably. This team will be able to carry you through the middle game– or at least maximize the loss of life from lost rounds. The main strategy still applies, bank up gold and keep collecting all the Shadows and Blademasters so you can run the (4) Shadow (4) Blademaster comp when you enter the late game rounds.
Another thing to note is that you should always run for the Spatula in Carousel rounds as turning two other Shadow units into Blademaster will skyrocket your team’s damage output which is already very high.
During late game is when Blademaster team comps start to shine as you acquire (4) Blademaster and (4) Shadows. At this point in the game the main goal is to keep improving the team composition by upgrading units and leveling up so you can put in a Janna and Kha’Zix. These will grant you the (2) Mystic, (2) Desert and (2) Cloud buffs which synergize well with this team. Currently this Blademaster team composition is the best Blademaster build on official 9.22 Tier Lists for season 2.
Another thing that is key with this type of a build is positioning, as well as good itemization and you can read about these below.
Sivir → Hush, Runaan’s Hurricane and Sword Breaker
Aatrox → Dragon’s Claw, Hextech Gunblade, Phantom Dancer
Yasuo → Dragon’s Claw, Frozen Gauntlet, Phantom Dancer
Master Yi → Deathblade, Guinsoo’s Gunblade and Hand of Justice
Kindred → Phantom Dancer, Seraph’s Embrace and Rabadon’s Deathcap
Sion → Dragon’s Claw, Warmog’s Armor, Phantom Dancer
Janna → Redemption, Dragon’s Claw and Hush
Malzahar → Guinsoo’s Rageblade, Morellonomicon and Spear Sho’Jin
Kha’Zix → The Bloodthirster, Infinity Edge and Seraph’s Embrace
Blademaster team comp requires great positioning skills and below is the illustration of how your units should be placed in order for you to maximize the round win rate. Sion, Yasuo and Aatrox are the main front line which peels for the hard carries such as Master Yi and Kindred so they can deal damage without getting one-shot at the round start. Janna, Kindred and Sivir will be unlikely to die early on which makes Sivir incredibly useful if you’ve got the Hush and Sword Breaker on her for the huge debuff capabilities.
