Best Nilah Builds in TFT
When you flow as water, nothing can harm you.

Perhaps all the warriors you knew used blades, but Nilah doesn’t use a normal blade but a liquid blade of incalculable might.

Despite being a normal girl, not even called Nilah, she managed to change all of this, turning into a legend.

This is a full article on how to play Nilah in TFT, best guiding you to SLAY your enemies with a liquid blade.

The bigger they are, the better the fight.

Nilah is a warrior trained in the Kathkan tradition. She races across the ocean with a whip-blade formed from glittering, prismatic water.

Her duels with rampaging sea serpents defy the limits of human ability. Nilah's origins are shrouded in mystery.

An order of heroes that Nilah realized was beneath her very feet in the heart of the Kathkani capital. Overcome with excitement, she struck out to find this hidden order and learn its secrets.

Ten years later, she resurfaced, a stranger to her homeland, unbound from the world she knew. Having the name "Nilah," which is the name of the legendary river of fate.

Wielding a liquid blade of incalculable might, she has fought some of the greatest threats of ancient myth. At her side is the power of Ashlesh itself, which Nilah wields against other evils.

Best comps for Nilah


This comp revolves around stacking so many hit points for your Darkflight along with dealing tons of damage with 4 assassins on your team. Having Zeke’s on your Darkflights (Aphelios, Rell, and Qiyana) would provide Nilah and Rengar with so much attack speed, allowing them to slice enemies.

Best team for this build:

1 Dragon Tyrant Swain in the frontline can handle a lot of damage while giving the assassins time to kill the entire enemy team.

2-Qiyana counts as an additional assassin while being in the Darkflight circle, giving all Darkflight units the item she holds (Zeke’s Herald).

3-Rell improves the Darkflight trait while tanking with Swain.

4-Aphelios, as a darkflight gaining tons of attack speed, would deal some good damage from the backlines.

5-Rengar being the main carry and gaining a lot of HP and attack speed would make him a beast.

6-Nilah being in a team of 4 assassins and placed beside darkflights would make her deal tons of damage.

7-Diana is the 4th assassin, which would make it a set of 4 assassins.


This comp revolves around stacking up a lot of magic resist for your team, having Mystic members on your team, while having Lagoons as loot pirates.

This is a slow reroll to level 8, trying to get everyone on your board to 3 stars as most of them are low-priced champions.

Best team for this build:

1-Nilah would be the main source of damage to enemies’ backlines as an assassin and Lagoon member.

2-Seraphine would hugely increase the team’s utility as she would increase their on-hit damage and heal them.

3-Zac is a great frontline, being a Lagoon and a Guardian.

4-Rakan would be an excellent Guardian and Mystic.

5-Kai’sa would deal some good damage from the backline as a Lagoon member.

6-Zeri is really strong when being protected, as she deals tons of damage as a Lagoon.

7-Malphite would make it a 6 Lagoon set.

8-Bard would stun enemies, making them vulnerable for more damage.


This comp is a fast reroll to level 8, but make sure to get as many Malphite copies as you can along with Zyra.

Playing this comp would earn you a lot of loot since the Lagoon trait is activated and you also have Sohm as the main damage carry.

Best team for this comp:

1-Sylas being alone in the frontline as a mage and bruiser, would make him sustain a lot of damage.

2-Sohm is your main damage carry as the Lagoon dragon, and he also shares the mage trait.

3-Serpahine is a Lagoon that heals the team.

4-Zoe creates a team of three mages while dealing a lot of damage and shielding the team.

5-Nilah would slay the backlines of the enemy while adding an additional 1 to the Lagoon trait.

6-Malphite is a bruiser and lagoon, which makes him a great fit on this team.

7-Zyra is an Evoker, along with her sister Seraphine and a whisper, sharing it with Sylas.
