Our Teamfight Tactics Best Glacial Team Comp goes over the top build for this Origin in TFT! If you want to lockdown your opponent's board, then Glacial teams are going to be one of the best options for that.
Glacial is an interesting Origin because when paired with some of the units, it can very easily stun and keep at bay some of those high damage team comps. Not only do you have the Glacial buff itself that has a possibility of stun, you also have Ashe and Sejuani who have active abilities that can keep your opponent locked down as well. Ashe can be one of your carries, and if you manage to get two Spears of Sho'jin onto her, then she will start firing off her ability quite quickly!
Best Glacial Team Comp
- Mordekaiser (Phantom/Knight)
- Mordekaiser slams his mace in front him, dealing damage to two enemies in a line.
- Vayne (Noble/Ranger)
- Vayne deals bonus true damage every third attack based on the enemy's maximum health.
- Varus (Demon/Ranger)
- Varus charges and fires an arrow, dealing damage to all enemies in a line.
- Ashe (Glacial/Ranger)
- Ashe fires an arrow that stuns and damages the farthest enemy. The stun is longer the farther the enemy.
- Volibear (Glacial/Brawler)
- Volibear empowers his attacks to chain between enemies, applying on-hit effects.
- Kindred (Phantom/Ranger)
- Kindred creates a zone around herself that prevents allies from dying.
- Sejuani (Glacial/Knight)
- Sejuani creates a large glacial storm, stunning enemies within it after a short delay.
- Anivia (Glacial/Elementalist)
- Anivia channels a large hailstorm, damaging and slowing the attack speed of enemies inside of it.
You'll be running an early Noble build to get yourself out of the early game. Volibear and Ashe are going to be your item carry units.
This is a rather simple build to position, keep your high health units like Volibear and Sejuani in the front, and keep your high damage characters in the back. The general left side corner positioning works best, so you can surround you damage dealers and keep them away from Assassins.
Glacial/Rangers Team Comp Guide
This build starts to take shape in the mid to late game, so until then we're just looking to manage and not lose too badly. We can go for an early three Nobles that should carry us well into the late game. Both Garen and Fiora work well for this early composition. Item wise, we're going to be building Spear of Sho'jins, so we'll want to look for B.F. Swords. We're also targeting Recurve Bows to combine together to create a Rapid Firecannon. Volibear is very strong after the recent 9.14 patch, you'll want another Rapid Firecannon so keep looking for bows, but also look for Chain Vests and Giant's Belt for Red Buff. Negatron Cloak plus Chain Vest can be put together for Sword Breaker. Debuffs are a lot stronger now, and Volibear's attack spreads out to multiple enemy units.
Keep an eye out for Mordekaisers in the early game. We might not want to use him because he won't work to give us the Noble buff we're looking to maintain in some of the early levels, but we'll need him later. If you find a Varus early on and have the Vayne, then you might find it worthwhile to level up to 4 early on to get the Ranger buff.
As we head into the mid-game, we start to look for Ashe who will likely be our main damage dealer and target for the item stack. We'll also want to start looking to upgrade our Vayne and Varus, and keep an eye out for any Volibear. You can start to make the transition over to the more full build once you have the units for the Glacial buff. It's even better if you can land an early Sejuani because you'll be able to take advantage of the Knight buff with Mordekaiser.
Only level up if you have a slot you can fill that will give you a synergy, or you've 3-starred your low level units. Once you start leveling up, you'll more rarely see any of the 1-star units, which will make it harder to upgrade them in the late game. However, leveling up increases your chances of finding a Sejuani, Kindred, and Anivia early on.

You'll want to really start rolling to upgrade your units now. If you've got your Sejuani and Kindred to 2-star, then you are likely not going to get much further with these. Look for that Anivia who will complete the four unit requirement to upgrade to the tier 2 Glacial buff. If you end up getting an additional level, feel free to throw out a Cho'gath on the board who is a great last option for its AOE.
