Warcry Chief Item Build

The Warcry Chief Item 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.

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 Item Build is the best build for Franco when it comes to supporting allies and stopping enemies on their tracks.

Viking Warrior Item Build

The Viking Warrior Item Build may sound like it’s a build that’s purely based on offense, but that is actually not the case here! In point of fact, this build has an astounding blend of attack power, HP boost, cooldown reduction, and debuffing effects. Not only is this build highly specialized for offense, it also is capable of delivering nuisance through its impairing effects.

Overall, the Viking Warrior Item Build is great in terms of offense. It’s still quite supportive and tanky, but it shines brilliantly the most when it is used for offensive plays. As a last note, this build becomes even more effective whenever Franco takes on the initiating role.

Franco may not be as tanky as the other tank heroes, but this build puts him near their level. But even so, Franco is more of a supportive tank than a defensive tank.

Franco’s survivability is the highest with this build. That means he can soak a lot of damage without worrying much about getting killed fast. Therefore, he can cause ailments with his crowd control skills longer until his allies manage to deliver the finishing blows.
