Witches and magic damage squads are always an integral part of Arena Of Truth and after the 10.12 update was released, this squad suddenly had a very different way of playing with the appearance of a new 5-currency unit – Janna.
If before, the strength of the Witch – Star Guard squads comes from the large damage generals such as Syndra, Vel’Koz continuously launching, in this new version, the normal attacks of the Wizards will be much stronger with Janna’s special Holy Mother system. The reason is that the Witch System enhances magic damage, while the Holy Mother System turns attack damage into magic damage, so you do not need to hit too much but still have damage.
Janna has brought a huge change in the style of the Witch squad
Because of the dependence on Janna, the updated Witches squad will be extremely dependent on the level, having level 8 and full 6 Witches is vital to playing this squad. So in the early and mid game, you can play whatever you want, as long as you keep the blood. Ideally, you should get strong 1 units early and easily combo together.
Ideal squad early in the game
By the middle of the match, you will have many directions to upgrade your squad depending on what you get from the store. If you get Fizz early at level 6, the Witchcraft 4 Pilot squad is not a bad choice. If you buy Jayce and get 2 stars, you can give an additional No Pirate along with 4 Witches to ensure your health and have a little extra money. Remember that after the update, when selling high-level chess pieces from the level 2 money upwards only 1 gold loss only so you can easily “turn cards”.

By the end of the battle, the two most important units now are Xerath and Janna, you should give energy boosts and effects to Janna so she can use her skill as quickly as possible. with Xerath, having a lot of attack speed from Janna’s skill will make every time he uses a skill, a lot of “falling stars” are released.
Complete squad at the end of the match, if there is Gangplank, should replace Riven
Besides, you need a frontline unit to both attract the enemy squad, and deal damage or effects to create space for the Witch. Riven is the easiest unit to find because she can deal large area of damage, have the ability to create armor and can live extremely long. However, if you can get a 2-star Gangplank, then replacing Riven with this Khong is the best.
In terms of equipment, Janna needs the most, a Shojin Spear to restore energy continuously, through which whirlwinds are also more. Xerath was not so different when Guinsoo and the algorithm were the best choice. As for pure AP equipment, if you have items like Witch Hat, Devil’s Book of Morello, it’s best to give it to Viktor.
Xerath needed the Ultimate Technique Towel, so that when he used it, he wouldn’t be interrupted
