Who is Miss Fortune?

Miss Fortune is one of the most feared captains in Bilgewater. Her entire life purpose was to seek revenge on Gangplank for killing her family ⁠— something she achieved by blowing up his flagship ⁠— and try to knock him off the Bilgewater throne.

On Summoner’s Rift, Miss Fortune puts her parent’s workmanship as firearm forgers to good use, mowing enemies down with twin hand-cannons as an AD carry.

Miss Fortune abilities & gameplay

Miss Fortune is a more ability-centric AD carry compared to others. However, she currently holds herself in a class of her own in Season 11.

Both a strong lane bully and a late-game hyper-carry threat, Miss Fortune is strong across all points of the game. She can poke down enemies in lane with her Q and E, and her high movement speed makes it all but impossible to trade or engage back.

She plays at range too, meaning you have to throw out big flashes and gap closers to try and shut her down. Good luck chasing her though, as her Strut movement speed bonus is better than backing and buying boots (which allows her to take Magical Footwear as a rune).

Late-game, she is a team fighting menace. Her Bullet Time does a ton of damage, and when paired with the slow from Make It Rain (and other crowd control from allies), it’s impossible to escape. The only thing Miss Fortune really lacks is a dash to peel herself away from assassins ⁠— but she often takes Exhaust as her second Summoner Spell after Flash to counter this.

You want to look at maxing your Q first as Miss Fortune as the damage is so huge in lane. W max second is great for movement speed too, as Miss Fortune only really uses her E to slow enemies down.

  • Passive: Love Tap ⁠— Miss Fortune deals bonus physical damage whenever she basic attacks a new target.
  • Q: Double Up ⁠— Miss Fortune fires a bullet at an enemy, damaging them and a target behind them. Both strikes can also apply Love Tap.
  • W: Strut ⁠— Miss Fortune passively gains Movement Speed when not attacked. This ability can be activated to grant bonus Attack Speed for a short duration. While it’s on cooldown, Love Taps reduce the remaining cooldown of Strut.
  • E: Make It Rain ⁠— Miss Fortune reveals an area with a flurry of bullets, dealing waves of damage to opponents and slowing them.
  • R: Bullet Time ⁠— Miss Fortune channels a barrage of bullets into a cone in front of her, dealing large amounts of damage to enemies. Each wave of Bullet Time can critically strike

Best Miss Fortune builds

There are two types of Miss Fortune builds that give the AD carry two different playstyle. She can be played as both a Lethality AD carry ⁠— carving through enemies with her ultimate ⁠— or closer to a more traditional carry, dishing out the pain with auto-attacks.

Both builds do rely on one similar stat, and that’s critical strike chance. The Lethality build benefits from it by cleaving through enemies with massive waves of Bullet Time, while the traditional build focuses on big Double Ups. To maximize the effectiveness of both, The Collector and Infinity Edge are must-takes.

However, if you go the Lethality build, you’ll want to take Eclipse as your Mythic to double down on the damage ⁠— and give a bit of sustain (with Arcane Comet, but more on runes later). More traditional builds will want Galeforce for the extra mobility it offers (with Press The Attack).

The Lethality build focuses on her abilities, so Youmuu’s Ghostblade for the mobility and Serylda’s Grudge for the slow is key. The traditional build is a bit better at busting down tanks, so Lord Dominik’s Regards helps in that department.

The thing with Miss Fortune is that you have to lock yourself into one of two builds from champion select with her runes. If you are against squishes, take Arcane Comet and run the Lethality build. If you have a few more tanks to face up against, take Press The Attack and run the more traditional build.

Best Miss Fortune runes

Like we said at the end of the build section, Miss Fortune’s game plan is ultimately dictated by the runes you take.

If you are playing against squishies, you’ll want Arcane Comet. It helps with lane harass ⁠— you are guaranteed to land the comet off the back of Make It Rain. Manaflow Band helps with her mana issues (along with Biscuit Delivery), while Absolute Focus makes her abilities powerful at the start of fights when she’s still high health.

Versus tanks, Press The Attack is better because it increases your ability to cleave through their health bars. Overheal and Legend: Bloodline are great for sustain, and you’ll need Biscuit Delivery to fix Miss Fortune’s mana problems.

You don’t want to cross your builds (like take Press The Attack and run a Lethality build), so be sure to follow your game plan from your runes to get the most out of Miss Fortune.
