Ashe has arrived in Teamfight Tactics set 6.5. In TFT: Neon Nights. Ashe is a two-cost Syndicate Sniper and her Volley ability makes her one of the premier low-cost carry champions in the entire game. Through a mix of analysis by Upcomer’s TFT expert and data from API sites like Metatft.com, Upcomer has brought players an Ashe TFT guide that goes over what the best Vi items, comps and positioning looks like.
Since Syndicate gives Ashe innate healing, players will want to maximize out damage potential when it comes to building items on her. The two best attack damage items in the game are Infinity Edge and Giant Slayer. Since Ashe will be critting, players should look at Last Whisper as her third item to shred items. These three items are the holy trinity for every attack damage carry in TFT Set 6.5. With that said, if players have an opportunity to build a Rageblade instead of Giant Slayer than that is also very strong on Ashe. Instead of Giant Slayer, players can look at the other options on the list.
Ashe is a Sniper champion, so she absolutely needs to sit on the backrow with no other place to go. Since Snipers have increased range this is fine. She won’t need to walk up to hit other champions, which makes the Sniper trait the safest in the game by default. Players should again aim to put Ashe in one of the corners for maximum safety.
Because Ashe is a Syndicate Sniper, she slots well into a Syndicate Sniper composition. Ashe benefits greatly from both traits. The Syndicate trait gives her built-in defense and healing while Sniper gives her more damage. In the current metagame as of TFT Patch 12.5, the best way for Ashe to thrive is to go deep into the Syndicate trait tree and throw in an additional Sniper champion to give Ashe that little bit of extra damage that will let her scale into the late game. Because of the diversity of the Syndicate champions’ secondary traits, this end game board activates the Enchanter, Clockwork and Scholar traits. In fact, this is one of the few “perfect synergy” compositions due to every champion’s trait on the board is active.
