  1. Warcry Chief

The Warcry Chief build is a hybridized tank and support build. It mainly concentrates on raising the efficacy of Franco’s crowd control skills and improving his ability to support his allies.

What This Build Does

While this build doesn’t turn Franco into an impregnable tank, it turns him into a supportive fortress that provides beneficial buffs to his allies and impairing debuffs to his enemies.

This build provides Franco the maximum amount of cooldown reduction for his skills. For this reason, his crowd control skills become even more terrifying. After all, Franco’s Iron Hook, Fury Shock, and Brutal Massacre skills were all made to damage and disable the enemies. With the items here enhancing all of Franco’s skills and providing better support mechanisms, the Warcry Chief build is the best build for Franco when it comes to supporting allies and stopping enemies on their tracks.

Really loving attack/health build that’s mostly covered in the bottom 2.

Magic shoes

Thunderbelt for mana (he drains easily), armor, CDR, powered attack.

Queens wings for CDR and attack and lots of health.

Cursed helmet

Sky guardian helmet

Twilight Armor/Oracle.

Good amount of CDR and mana to spam skills. All the highest HP items which helps durability and can deal serious damage with 2nd skill (especially with 30% CDR), enough resistance to make it work
