Ultimate TFT Guide – The Inferno Board Master
The four special elemental board forms are one of the most unique aspects of TFT’s set 2 Rise of the Elements. Each game, players will be battling it out on either a Cloud, Ocean, Mountain or Infernal board with each providing unique buffs to units situated on one of the two elemental hexes. TFTDom’s guide below will provide everything you need to know to become The Inferno Board Master!
What are TFT Elemental Hexes?
The second set of Teamfight Tactics is named, Rise of the Elements. Titled perfectly after the introduction of the new elemental hexes which act similarly to the current Summoner’s Rift Elemental Dragons. Decided at random, each match will start with one of the four elements and based on the chosen element, hexes will appear on the board that grants buffs to the units placed on them.
Placing a unit on an elemental hex will take up an item slot. If a unit currently possesses three items and is placed on an elemental hex, the hex will provide no effects. After the first carousel, one hex will appear and once you’ve reached rounds 3-1 a second hex will appear with the location identical for all players.
TFT Inferno Elemental Board
What stats do Inferno Hexes Provide? Placing a unit on a hex with the Inferno element will grant +30% Attack Speed.
Best Inferno Items
Inferno boards allow units to use their predominant attacks even faster which means that the logical choice represents items that can further increase units attack speed and damage. Items that provide damage, attack speed or both are desirable especially when they can be combined into strong full items.
Approach each Carousel round with clear objective goals, focusing on single items that when combined produce practical full items.
- B.F Sword (Deathblade, Bloodthirster, Infinity Edge)
- Recurve Bow (Guinsoo’s Rageblade, Runaan’s Hurricane)
For the best TFT Inferno combined items, select strong items that are in sync with Attack Speed or raw damage.
- Guinsoo’s Rageblade
- Infinity Edge
- Sword Breaker (Flex)
Best Champs and Team Comps – TFT Inferno Board
With potent and frequent auto attacks, reliable options are units whose primary fire is their prime means of dealing damage. This, of course, favors traits like Rangers and Berzerkers. Many Rangers are assisted by increased attack speed and may be ideal candidates for backline hexes as demonstrated by the composition below.
Here are a few more options that can perform extremely well on TFT Inferno boards to give you a wider picture as to what can be viable options:
Blender Nocturne – Many units can benefit from the addition of +30% increased attack speed, although Nocturne (Blademaster), Master Yi and Sivir would be best suited.
Inferno Board Final Notes
Players on Inferno boards should aim to select units that don’t depend on spell damage or being tanky to excel. Rangers are a logical choice for backline hexes, while Berserkers can thrive in frontline Hexes. However, Inferno boards are not limited to just Rangers and Berserkers, units like Nocturne and Sivir can greatly benefit from the provided hex buff. Teamfight Tactics Inferno Boards is one of the most versatile bonuses to receive so don’t be afraid to mix it up a bit.
