Best comps for Poppy



  • 2 Aegis
  • 5 Mecha Prime
  • 4 Defender
  • 2 Brawler
  • 1 Ace

Rerolling steadily up to level 8 with Jax, Wukong, and Draven all at level 3 is the optimal tactic for this competition because doing so will guarantee victory.

Because of his position as the Prime Selected and the active state of his Brawler and Mecha-Prime skills, Jax is the main focus of this duel.

Optimal group for this build:

1-Jax will be your main source of damage, and after he consumes Wukong and Draven, he gains a significant amount of extra health and the Brawler trait comes into play.

2-Jax will receive the Defender skill and the full amount of Wukong's health.

3-Draven will use all of his remaining life energy to save Jax.

4-Riven is one of the most potent bruisers in the game because of her Brawler trait and the way she uses her skills as a shield. She will also impart her trait of being a Defender to her offspring.

5-Despite suffering severe injuries while fighting on the front lines, Ekko will still give his comrades the Aegis trait.

6-Having Sett up front, who possesses both the Mecha: Prime and Defender abilities, is a huge advantage.

7- Poppy will activate the second tier of the Defender trait because she is the fourth Defender.

8-Leona is a formidable tank and damage dealer thanks to Aegis and Mecha: Prime.



  • 2 Aegis
  • 5 Mecha Prime
  • 4 Defender
  • 2 Brawler
  • 1 Ace

The optimum strategy for this tournament is to reroll consistently up to level 8, with Jax, Wukong, and Draven all at level 3.

Because he is the Prime Selected and has active Brawler and Mecha-Prime powers, Jax is the major focus of this conflict.

Perfect comp team:

1-Once Jax consumes Wukong and Draven, gets tremendous health, and acquires the Brawler trait, he will serve as your primary damage dealer.

2-Jax will receive all of Wukong's health as well as the Defender talent.

3-Draven will exert all of his life force to save Jax.

4-Due to her Brawler trait and utilisation of her skills as a shield, Riven is one of the game's most effective bruisers. Her protective instincts are another gift from her parents.

5-While on the front lines, Ekko will take substantial damage, but his teammates will still gain from his Aegis trait.

6-Sett's presence on the front lines with Mecha Prime and Defender is a huge aid.

7-Since she is the fourth Defender, Poppy will start the second level of activation for the Defender.

8-Leona's Mecha: Prime and Aegis skills make her a potent damage-dealer and tank.



  • 4 Defender
  • 3 Anima Squad
  • 3 Mecha Prime
  • 2 Brawler

This is a slow reroll to level 8 with a strong economy trying to get Wukong and Jax to level 3, as it’s a must to win the game.

This game revolves around Wukong being chosen as the Prime to defend Miss Fortune because she can deal the necessary damage.

Best team for this build:

1-Wukong is the Mecha Prime selected while also sharing the Defender trait, which makes him a really strong frontline.

2-Jax will sacrifice his health for Wukong while also sharing the Brawler trait.

3-Sett will also sacrifice his health for Wukong while sharing the Defender trait.

4-Riven is an excellent choice because she possesses the three traits of Anima Squad, Defender, and Brawler.

5-Poppy will be sharing the Defender trait while sustaining damage.

6-Miss Fortune is the main damage dealer, as she shares both the Anima Squad and Ace traits, which makes her a really strong choice for dealing enough damage.

7-Jinx is a really good fit for this team as she shares the Anima Squad, and she can also stun enemies.
