Teamfight Tactics (TFT) offers a wide array of items to be built, but among them are a handful of extraordinary artifacts that can be obtained through special means. In Set 7.5, these artifacts, known as Ornn Artifacts, along with emblems and Radiant items, provide exciting opportunities to surprise your opponents with unexpected combinations. If you’re eager to explore the treasures of Ornn’s armory, this guide is tailor-made for you.
How do Ornn Artifacts work?
Similar to other items, Ornn’s Artifacts can be equipped on your units. However, these items possess distinct combinations of skills and tricks that enhance your gameplay experience. Take Idas’ Shimmerscale items, for instance. These artifacts often incorporate a twist related to gold, allowing your Attack Damage to scale with your gold reserves. Ornn’s items follow a similar pattern, drawing inspiration from skills and items found in the regular League of Legends, yet offering their own unique TFT twist.
Where can you find Ornn Artifacts?
In the current Set 7.5 configuration, there are two primary sources for obtaining Ornn Artifacts: augments and Chaos Shrines.
When it comes to augments, you have two options at your disposal. The Portable Forge is a Gold augment that grants you the ability to select one Ornn Artifact out of three choices. On the other hand, the Living Forge, a Prismatic augment, rewards you with a random Ornn Artifact after every 10 player combats. If you are fortunate enough to acquire this augment early in the game, you could potentially have a collection of half-a-dozen Ornn items by the end.
Alternatively, you might stumble upon an Ornn Artifact in a Chaos Shrine. However, due to the unpredictable nature of the Chaos Shrine, there is no guarantee that you will find one, even if you invest some gold in rolling for items.
Given the circumstances, it’s impossible to guarantee an Ornn Artifact in any given game. However, if you do come across the option, it can be a lucrative opportunity to strengthen your strategy.
Discovering the Ornn Artifacts
The Ornn Artifacts are all inspired by items featured in previous or current TFT and League of Legends versions. Here’s a concise overview of each artifact and how they function:
- Anima Visage: This artifact enables the holder to regenerate 5% of their maximum health every second.
- Death’s Defiance: Designed to endure battles, this item absorbs incoming damage over four seconds and redirects it toward the enemy. Additionally, it enhances Omnivamp by 25%.
- Eternal Winter: A spiritual successor to Frozen Heart, the Eternal Winter artifact slows down the attack speed of attacking enemies by 20% for two seconds. If an enemy is slowed seven times, they freeze for the duration of those two seconds. However, an enemy can only be frozen once every fifteen seconds.
- Gold Collector: For those who appreciate monetary gains, this item grants champions the ability to execute enemies below 10% health when striking them. These executions have a 50% chance of generating 1 gold.
- Infinity Force: All-in-one buffs for your units. Infinity Force bestows +33 Armor, +33 Attack Damage, +33% Attack Speed, +33 Health, +33 Magic Resist, and +33% Ability Power to its wearer.
- Manazane: A favorite among mana enthusiasts, this item grants 30 starting mana, with an additional benefit of regaining 150 mana over five seconds after the first ability is cast.
- Obsidian Cleaver: The bane of tanks, the Obsidian Cleaver reduces enemy armor and magic resist by 70% for five seconds upon the wearer’s basic attacks and spells.
- Randuin’s Sanctum: Sustain and protect your frontline with this artifact. Allies adjacent to the wearer gain a bonus of +40 armor and magic resist for the duration of combat.
- Rocket-Propelled Fist: Designed to disrupt enemy positioning, this item grants the holder the power to pull the furthest enemy into melee range and stun them for 1.5 seconds at the start of combat. Allies prioritize attacking the stunned enemy.
- Zhonya’s Paradox: Safeguard your carry units with this artifact. It prevents the first strike of damage that would bring a champion below 40% health, rendering them invulnerable for three seconds.
Ornn Artifacts provide a thrilling opportunity to explore new strategies and surprise your opponents in Teamfight Tactics. Whether you acquire them through augments or chance encounters at Chaos Shrines, these unique items add depth and excitement to your gameplay experience. Keep an eye out for these artifacts and harness their power to gain a competitive edge in the battlefield of Teamfight Tactics.
