Many players shy away from the typical enchantresses for more damage-oriented champions when playing or being auto-filled as support. The lack of damage makes them unwanted, especially in low elos. However, with the right playstyle and proper execution, enchantresses can be very impactful. Pair them with correct Mythic items, and their viability skyrockets. To help players make the right choice, here are the 5 best Mythic items for enchantress supports in League of Legends.
Enchantress supports item #5: Imperial Mandate
While Imperial Mandate may not be as powerful as it once was, it is still a decent item to build on enchantress supports. Slowing or immobilizing an opponent deals with magic damage and marks them, enabling allies to deal even more damage to the marked player.
Build Imperial Mandate on enchantress supports with outstanding crowd control, like Seraphine, to get the most out of the item. This allows her AD Carry to follow up for a quick trade or even pick up a kill if their opponents are low enough. Players need to hold their crowd-controlling abilities until they are assured they can land it since most enchantress supports are fairly mana-intensive early on.
Enchantress supports item #4: Luden’s Tempest
While this item may not be typical on some enchantress supports, it can still be put to work if used properly. The item is more damage-oriented and hence is suitable for champions that can consistently poke. It packs a lot of damage that can catch enemy champions off guard.
Champions like Karma can really make the most of this item. With her Q, Inner Flame, she can easily poke out opponents and chunk them for a large portion of their health or even maintain a wave if her ADC isn’t in the lane. She can also protect her allies with the shield on her E, Inspire, which regular AP supports cannot offer.
Enchantress supports item #3: Moonstone Renewer
One of the more commonly used enchantress support items is Moonstone Renewer. It ensures that your teammates get guaranteed healing when in combat. Although it is great for keeping allies alive, the item doesn’t boost damage and can be tricky to maneuver.
Champions like Nami can make the most of this item because not only is she fairly good in combat and trades, but she can also use her W, Ebb and Flow, to heal low-health allies. She can heal up to two allies in a team fight which can be a gamechanger under the right circumstances.
Enchantress supports item #2: Everfrost
Another unorthodox item to take on an enchantress support is Everfrost. While it may not boast the same damage as Luden’s Tempest or have the healing capabilities of Moonstone Renewer, it has a lot to offer in its own way.
Everfrost can fit on almost any enchantress support due to the flexibility it offers. The item grants Mana, health, and Ability Power. Additionally, the passive on the item takes it to another level. The passive ability allows the user to shoot a cone that stuns or slows any opponent caught in it. The closer the enemies get to the middle of the cone, the longer they are stunned. This is ideal for support champions that want that extra bit of crowd control to help their allies out in a fight or to escape a sticky situation.
Enchantress supports item #1: Shurelya’s Battlesong
Shurelya’s Battlesong is a powerhouse item that offers a lot to the champion that wields it. The item is ideal for champions or team compositions that lack engage or disengage and need that extra bit of movement speed to do so.
Shurelya’s Battlesong is typically built by champions like Janna because it adds to her already powerful engage/disengage-oriented kit and offers the extra mobility she needs to get out of a bad fight or reach her teammates who need assistance. It is also ideal for enchantress supports because of the item’s passive, Motivate, which offers single-target movement speed to shielded or healed allies, perfect for a two versus two fight that may require some chasing or a quick escape if need be.
