The Best Advanced Items In 'League of Legends'

Updated February 4, 2020 278 votes 18 voters44 items

List RulesVote up all your favorite must-have advanced (component) items.

There are tons of different types of items in League of Legends, with some being stronger and more useful than others. When it comes to crafting items, having the best advanced items (or component items, as they're often called) in your arsenal can often be the deciding factor between a victorious battle and a crushing defeat. Usually crafted by combining at least one basic item, LoL advanced items help give players a leg-up on the competition by granting Champions with either upgraded passive or active abilities.

What are your favorite advanced items in LoL? While certain items are best paired with specific Champions, this list ranks every advanced item in LoL, from Aegis of the Legion to Zeal and more, as well as each item's specific recipe and prospective future builds.

Vote up all the component items you always find yourself and your team using in League of Legends, and vote down all the items you couldn’t care less about.
