Bot Lane Guides5 Best Supports for Miss Fortune in League of Legends

5 Best Supports for Miss Fortune in League of Legends

Miss Fortune was one of the champions with the highest pick rate in 2021, and with good reason. She is a wonderful ADC with long-range abilities and a powerful wave clear. She can be left alone by the support and play the weakside lane. 

She can farm safely in bot lane without fighting the enemy bot laners because of her long range. Even if the bot lane duo manages to build up a huge wave and crash it on MF, she can use her E or ultimate to clear it. She is also an excellent team fighting ADC, which says a lot about her pick rate. Now let us look at 5 of the best support champions that bring out the best in MF. 

5. Maokai

Maokai’s incredible ability to stay on the faces of enemy champions is quite remarkable as he has lots of slows and CC abilities. His ultimate is also one of the best initiating abilities in the game, given that you place it perfectly. Maokai’s ultimate has a very long C duration if enemies are caught, and this is perfect for MF to hit enemies with all of her bullets coming from her ultimate. 

Best Item For Maokai

Evenshroud

Once the enemy team is caught by your ultimate, the first enemy rooted will trigger the effects of Even shroud and make all nearby enemies rooted take more damage. This is the best initiating ability and item for Miss Fortune as it increases her ultimate’s damage even further. 

Different Playstyle for Each Phase

Early Game Playstyle

Maokai’s laning phase is pretty simple, fill the bushes with your saplings and wait for enemies to go near them. If you manage to land these saplings, prepare to engage with your W and Q combo to bring enemies closer to MF and slow them down in the process. This is a solid early game engagement, and knowing that Maokai can heal with his passive is a great trade-off. 

Mid Game Playstyle

Maokai can surprise enemies with his ultimate if he casts it from the fog of war. Meaning he excels at roaming if his ultimate is up. Take a dewarding item and stay in the fog of war each time your ultimate is up, so enemies won’t know where your ultimate engage is coming from. Don’t worry about leaving the bot lane as MF can quickly deal with playing weakside. 

Late Game Playstyle

Maokai’s late-game focuses on team fighting, and this is where he excels. With the right items, Maokai can become unkillable, and he can stay at the front line for a very long time so enemies won’t be able to get to MF as he kills them from afar. If team fights erupt, stay at the front line and keep enemies from getting to MF. Your combined ultimates are crucial and could be the deciding factor of the team fight.

4. Nami

Another AOE support can maximize the effects of MF’s aoe abilities. Nami’s early game abilities are also great for MF in many ways; she has a heal that she can also use to poke enemies with. An AOE on her q can be used to initiate takedowns and an enchanting ability for MF to poke. Nami is broad support that doesn’t fall in value no matter what phase of the game you’re in, and she can be played both aggressively and defensively.

Best Item For Nami

Shurelya’s

Nami has all the means to initiate fights and lock enemies down or even slow them; she lacks a way to chase a disengaging enemy down. Once she activates this item’s effect, it gives MF even faster movement speed knowing that she already has high movement speed. Both of them have slowing abilities, meaning they can use them when they catch up to the enemies. 

Different Playstyle for Each Phase

Early Game Playstyle

Nami’s W is an excellent trading ability, be it cast on her or Miss Fortune; you can start maxing this ability first as this will be your primary poking ability and heal for MF. Try to poke enemies with it as soon as the minions arrive, but that’s it, do not go for further engages with this duo as their power spike comes in level 6.

Mid Game Playstyle

When the mid-game comes, their kill pressure in the bot lane becomes stronger because of their ultimates. Nami can engage enemies with her ultimate, leading to enemies being knocked airborne and slowed. This is the perfect time for MF to cast her ultimate, and Nami can even extend the CC by using her bubble on slowed enemies.

Late Game Playstyle

Avoid wandering away from MF as she needs you all the time. Stay in groups as team fights are imminent, especially when late-game objectives are off the clock. Initiate team fights as you would in the mid-game and perform a combo with MF’s ultimate. Stay in the backline along with MF and let all your front liners take all the damage for you. 

3. Thresh

Thresh’s synergy with MF is quite strong, knowing that he can lock enemies when he reaches level 2. Thresh’s early game abilities allow MF to hit her Q even more accessible, thanks to the displacing abilities of Thresh. He is also an excellent champion to peel for MF but can also be a roaming champion and leave MF behind for a weakside play. 

Best Item For Thresh 

Deadman’s Plate

Having high movement speed is very significant on Thresh as his combos revolve around his E ability. Flay is a displacing ability that can set a hook and ultimate ability isolation on an enemy. This item’s flat armor and health are also an incredible addition to Thresh’s tanky nature, making tower dives possible.

Different Playstyle for Each Phase

Early Game Playstyle

Start the game by playing defensively or poking enemies with your E passive along with Miss Fortune’s E and Q. Once you bring an enemy’s hp down to half, you can go for an all-in engage and score for a takedown. When engaging enemies, stay in front of them, so when they flash away, you can use your lantern on MF to let her catch enemies up. Flay is also a remarkable ability to keep enemies from disengaging.

Mid Game Playstyle

Engaging enemies from bushes and fog of war is a great way to catch them off guard. An unexpected hook always disorients an enemy causing them to panic quickly. Roaming with a dewarding item is a great way to capitalize on MF’s weakside potential.

Late Game Playstyle

Thresh is a pretty tanky champion in the late game with lots of CC abilities to offer. He can stay in the front line and keep enemies from getting to MF; his hook and flay are great examples of this. If he is the initiating champion for the team fight, however, look to build a redemption so you can protect your entire tea as the fight erupts. Once you like enemies inside your ultimate, it is straightforward for MF to hit them all with her ultimate, knowing that it slows enemies down for 99% for a duration.

2. Jarvan IV

Jarvan can be rarely seen as a support, but he can indeed be a damn good one for Miss Fortune. His tanky nature makes him excellent tank support with a great spell that can lock enemies down for MF’s ultimate. His E + Q engage is pretty devastating, and his slow coming from his W is also helpful in early game skirmishes.

Best Item For Jarvan

Deadman’s Plate

This item allows Jarvan to have a high movement speed and unlock his roaming potential. This is also a great item to have in the lane, knowing that it has a slow effect coming from Jarvan’s basic attack after it has been fully charged. 

Different Playstyle for Each Phase

Early Game Playstyle

Jarvan’s early game domination starts at level 3 when he unlocks all of his abilities for his combo. You might want to play defensively at the early phases of the laning phase and focus on farming and reaching level 3. Once you hit your level 3 power spike, try to look for an opening where support or ADC wanders far from each other. Go for the kill once you see this, and MF can easily follow up on it. This might not lead to a kill, but it can lead to both summoner spells being burnt; it will be much easier to take them down after this. 

Mid Game Playstyle

Jarvan is pretty cheesy support because of his ultimate and MF’s. Once you see the enemy adc and support clump together, use your flash and ultimate on them and use your E + Q to get out of the pit. If you do this, not only did you set a kill for MF, but you also stayed safe as you didn’t get trapped with the enemy inside your pit.

Late Game Playstyle

When team fights happen in the late game, engage enemies with your basic combo and watch MF demolish everyone with her ultimate.

1. Leona

Another tanky champion with an impressive long-range CC ability. One of the most aggressive supporters in the game, Leona is an excellent champion supporting MF. She engages strongly because it has a low cooldown, and her early game thrives. Post level 6, though, this duo becomes a monster duo because of their ultimate; they can also perform tower dives and come out on top. A potent duo that can demolish lanes and keep the enemy bot lane from ever getting stronger.

Best Item For Leona

Deadman’s Plate

Relying on movement speed, Leona’s engaging easily hit with a high movement speed. Sure she can engage using her ultimate but having to engage enemies multiple times with your basic combo easily is much better than relying on your ultimate all the time.

Different Playstyle for Each Phase

Early Game Playstyle

Leona’s early game is not that strong given that she has an excellent engagement potential; her damage and MF’s are pretty mediocre. Try to play safe and stay away from fights and focus on farming. Help your jungler ward crucial areas and help him if he wants to invade the enemy jungler.

Mid Game Playstyle

Once MF reaches her item power spike and both of you have their ultimates up, it’s safe to say that you are now clear to engage enemies and come out on top. Leona’s engagement with her ultimate is excellent, but you must hit multiple enemies with it so MF can maximize the damage on her AOE ultimate.

Late Game Playstyle

Leona is a front-line champion that easily keeps enemies from getting to the backline. Her engagement is quite strong, knowing that she has a spell that reduces damage to a certain percentage. She can engage for MF in the late game and even survive the retaliation of the opposing team.
