Samira Wild Rift is a marksman who deals more damage when fighting in melee range. The way to build Samira is to focus on critical strike items such as The Collector and Immortal Shieldbow. To play Samira effectively, you should alternate between basic attacks and abilities to stack her passive and reach S rank as quickly as possible.

Samira Build

Early Game:

Gluttonous Greaves: Like most marksmen, Samira is not very strong at the start of the game. That's why I buy this boot to help her stay in lane longer with its lifesteal.

The Collector: This is a must-buy item. Besides the bonus stats like damage, critical strike, and armor penetration, the Execute passive is extremely important. It will instantly execute targets below 5% health.

This passive synergizes with Samira's ultimate Inferno Trigger, allowing her to take down multiple targets.

Mid Game:

Immortal Shieldbow: This is also a must-buy item. It creates a shield when Samira's health is below 35%. This is useful when Samira engages in melee combat.

She will definitely take a lot of damage. Having an extra shield will drastically increase her survivability, which means she can use her ultimate more effectively and deal more damage.

Infinity Edge: Samira's kit deals critical strike damage, so we need to buy critical strike items to increase her damage. No item provides more critical strike chance than Infinity Edge.

Late Game:

At this stage, you will consider situational items.

Mortal Reminder: Buy this when the enemy team has too much armor.

Maw of Malmortius: Buy this when the enemy AP is too strong.

Guardian Angel: Put pressure on the enemy team not to attack Samira.

Samira Runes

Conqueror Samira's strong point is the damage from her ultimate for wide area damage. Conquest will stack with Samira's continuous moves to deal explosive damage to the entire enemy team.

Triumph Samira is very easy to get a pentakill if she can stay until the end of the teamfight. Picking this gem on every kill heals Samira for some health. This will be the premise for Samira to achieve pentakill.

Nullifying Orb Nullifying Orb is an important rune that protects Samira while below 35% health. Samira is forced to rush into the enemy squad to launch the ultimate, so she often takes a lot of damage. You have to stay alive until you can unleash the ultimate to maximize Samira's power.

Sweet Tooth Sweet Tooth will make Samira's laning phase easier. A strong champion in the late game, so the laning phase is usually quite weak. Choose this rune to last longer.

You need to max Ứng Biến to stay on lane longer thanks to the lifesteal ability. This is also Samira's main skill to farm as well as deal damage. Especially Ứng Biến with a very fast cooldown.

Samira abilities

Daredevil Impulse Daredevil Impulse

Dealing damage with unique basic attacks or abilities stacks Style points, from E to S (6 ranks total).

Each rank grants 3.5% bonus movement speed.

In short, after using an ability, weave in basic attacks to stack Style points. This attack pattern is similar to Lucian's.

Passive: Basic attacks and melee abilities deal bonus magic damage based on the target's missing health. To optimize damage, poke from afar before engaging in melee combat.

If an enemy is immobilized, Samira will dash to the edge of their attack range to attack. This can be both beneficial and detrimental. If it's a target that needs to be eliminated, it's a good way to get close and deal damage.

However, in chaotic teamfights, Samira may mis-select a target and lose her safe position by automatically dashing.

Against enemies that are knocked up, she will keep them knocked up for an additional 0.5 seconds.

Flair Flair

This is Samira's main poke ability. However, the projectile can be blocked by minions. It can critically strike. Against enemies near Samira, she will slash in a cone.

All enemies within the cone will take the same amount of damage. Note that the cone slash will deal more damage when Samira fires the projectile.

Blade Whirl Blade Whirl

This ability's main function is to block projectiles. Samira spins her sword around her, dealing damage to enemies twice.

However, the duration is very short, so the key to maximizing this ability is timing.

I usually use this ability when engaging enemies. It blocks damage and stacks the passive.

Wild Rush Wild Rush

This ability is used to quickly close the distance to a target. All targets in the dash path take damage. After dashing, attack speed is increased by 25%.

This means that Samira, although a marksman, has a melee attack style. When an enemy is killed, Wild Rush's cooldown is instantly refreshed.

Therefore, prioritizing low-health targets is the best choice.

Inferno Trigger Inferno Trigger

This is the ability that makes Samira so powerful. With high damage and critical strikes in a large area, Samira can wipe out the enemy team.

However, the condition for using it is to reach S rank and it will slow you down when used. But I have a tip: Samira can use both Inferno Trigger and Wild Rush at the same time.

The cooldown is very fast, so I use it whenever it's available.

How to play Samira

Use different skills interspersed with basic attacks to reach S rank fastest. The best way is to learn Samira's combos to be more forehand.

However, you should avoid focusing too much on the enemy team to accumulate style points without paying attention to your health bar. Only rush when you have at least A's or the champions with CC skills have used up, or avoid rushing into champions with lots of CC skills.

Early game play it's safe to aim to level up early to unlock skills, allowing Samira's mobility to activate. Remember that when you reach level 5 Samira will unlock Hỏa Ngục Liên Xạ this skill for terrible damage.

So rely on the support champion to avoid unnecessary transactions. If he encounters long-armed generals, Samira is still difficult to farm, let alone trade damage at the first levels.

Guns to farm ranged minions, swords to farm melee minions. Can be used Ứng Biến to eat minions from afar while avoiding being poked without worrying about consuming too much mana.

And in case you need to push the soldiers quickly, use the sword. Because in the form of a sword, the damage is relatively large and wide.

When the enemy champion is immobilized, attack to knock up the enemy champion thanks to the passive. From here you can imagine Samira is suitable to go with support champions with the ability to control.

Đánh Liều is a tool used to escape when being ganked

Once you have style points and the ability to approach enemy champions, you can now play stronger. Mid-game is also Samira's strongest phase.

At the end of the game, don't wait to start the fight, let your tank champion open and receive most of the control skills. Then jump in.

Samira pros and cons

Pros

  • Has the ability to heal from the skill set.
  • Great output damage.
  • The ultimate move can be outplayed, wiping out the entire enemy team.
  • Ability to block skills and surf.

Cons

  • Difficult to play, need to memorize many combos.
  • Depends on the support champion.
  • The ultimate is easy to control.
  • Depends on equipment.

Samira counters

When Samira rushes into the teamfights, use CC to control. Just killing before you can accumulate enough Samira style points won't do anything.

Conclude

Samira Wild Rift build following Kicdo's Meta allows her to quickly eliminate targets and significantly increases her survivability. This is the best build that can help Samira achieve Pentakill. I hope this guide on how to play Samira will help you master this champion.
