[Top 3] TFT Best Gwen Builds That Are Powerful

Best Gwen Builds in TFT
Bad jokes are a waste of life!

Gwen came to TFT with her huge pair of scissors to cut her enemies into halves, snipping around her targets to take them down.

Gwen dashes three times around her target, snipping and for every three casts, she gains armor and magic resist which would make her so much stronger.

In this article, we will talk about the combos to place Gwen within, her best items, and how to make sure you snip your enemies and get to the first place.

Just like the good old times. Sweet, simple, and out of control!

Gwen is a great pick in the front lines if you are picking a tank that can deal so much damage and heal, as she shares the Slayer trait.

Gwen also shares the Shadow Isles trait, which gives her a shield that would allow her to sustain more damage on the frontlines.

Gwen’s stats, traits, and items are all to be discussed down below to make sure you get the best outcome from placing her on your team.
