Riktor Offlane - Hybrid Tank + Damage
Riktor build by Lenny G 136 1predecessor.pro/builds/1694295691-riktor-offlane-hybrid-tank-damage
Ability level order
Titan: After taking damage, heal 1% of Maximum Health over 10s. Upon restoring 300 health, evolves into Goliath Crest.
Creep Slayer: Deal 20 extra basic damage to Minions.
Active - Atlas: Gain (+18% Maximum Health) bonus health for 6s. During this time, dealing damage Slows Enemies by 15% for 1s - 90 CD.
Creep Slayer: Deal 40 extra basic damage to Minions.
(Almost) every item in this build gives health. This is to take full advantage of Riktor's shielding passive. The build also focuses on using items that have additional effects against immobilized targets to combo with your hooks and ultimate.
Saphir's Mantle is my go-to crest for Riktor for the reason listed above; the ability to continue to grow your health makes the Riot Shield passive that much stronger.
Next priority is more health, haste, and armor. Build Dynamo or Flux Matrix depending on if you need more magical or physical armor. Usually in the offlane you'll want more physical, but situationally magical will be more useful, such as against Shinbi. Both increase the amount of damage you do to nearby enemies, with Flux Matrix increasing magical damage and Dynamo causing immobilized enemies (from hooks or your ultimate) to take additional damage.
Now that we've gotten some armor, it's time to get powerful! The next item I like is Elafrost to add some extra CC to your basics and be able to combo even harder with Dynamo/Flux's passive.
If you picked both of the physical armor items and could use a little magical armor in addition to power, build Truesilver Bracelet. The passive also grants you a shield when you use your ultimate & deals magical damage to nearby enemies. More items that combo off that health we're building!
The remaining items in the build are situational, but in addition to just building all of the above, these are some options I like with this build.
Tainted Guard is a must if you're against Grux or anyone else who builds physical lifesteal. If you built Dynamo earlier and/or don't need anymore physical armor, then I suggest Tainted Scepter as your anti-heal item.
If you need some magical armor and want some extra sustain, I recommend Void Helm. Taking advantage of the health and CC Riktor has, this passive heals you every time you immobilize an enemy.
If you need more physical armor and don't want to compromise power, I build Golem's Gift
If you need more physical armor and your opponents are building a lot of attack speed, build Frostguard
Finally if you feel like you have enough bulk and are ready to really punish enemies with those combos, build World Breaker, Oathkeeper, or both if you're nasty. World Breaker grants additional magical power based on your bonus health, while Oathkeeper adds even more haste and amplifies your basic attacks based on your magical power. Both items are great for really bursting down any enemies unfortunate enough to land on your hooks.
Good luck and happy fishing!
