Threat Hero Notes
1
Adagio Not a very powerful hero against your awesomeness, but watch for his ultimate and stun him to cancel it out
2
Celeste Depends on how strong a player controls her
2
Joule As long as she doesn't get a direct hit with her [[Big Red Button]], you should be okay
3
Skaarf Tiny range, generally okay to deal with. Use poking to get closer
3
SAW Quite an okay hero to take out, shouldn't pose that much of a threat. Avoid his [[Supressing Fire]] and attack while he's shooting air >:D
4
Krul He's got good regen in 1v1
4
Ardan Again, his ultimate is a pain considering how much Celeste has to escape
5
  No Threat
6
Catherine Her stun will be annoying, try not to attack when she has her shield up unless you're with a team mate
7
Ringo Use reflex block for his ult. Trigger it as it is about to hit you.
7
Glaive Stupid guy, this one. His knockbacks are really annoying, especially if you're trying to run away or chase a fleeing enemy with low health.
8
Koshka Watch out for ambushes, also her ultimate can really slow you down if you are trying to escape.
9
Petal Try to kill her pets. Her ultimate can kill you if you are low on health
10
Taka AVOID. AVOID. YOU WILL DIE

Celeste is designed to be an artillery mage, meaning she can dish out ranged damages. She is fairly malleable, so you can start her out either in the lane or the jungle.
As she needs a sizeable amount of gold for her to be effective in late game, you should try to get as much gold as possible.
Always hang behind a tankier hero in the event of battle; Celeste is quite squishy, so do not dive head first into the fray. If you are being targeted by a team, you're as good as dead as her health stats aren't the best. When playing Celeste, kiting is your bff. Move in to drop a Heliogenesis or Core Collapse then retreat, then go in again to drop another so on and so forth. Her abilities are indisputably the best for poking and harassing enemies like this so fight at the edge of battle to maximise her superior poking abilities.

Her first ability, Heliogenesis is great because the cooldown is fairly short. I would suggest upgrading this ability in the first two levels for maximum damage output then going on to Core Collapse only on level 3. Heliogenesis should be maxed. Another reason Heliogenesis is great because it gives you sight in the area you drop it in, so its safer to set these off than running in to plant a Scout Trap. Make the stars go supernova when you put two particularly close together for increased damage and range.
Get Core Collapse at level 3 and use it to defend yourself or finish off a fleeing enemy. This ability stuns a hero for a few seconds and can even null some heros' ultimate ability so it's very useful.
Note: With both abilities, try placing these ahead of a fleeing enemy as it takes some time to set off.
The last ability, Solar Storm should be maxed. It is your way to snipe fleeing enemies with low health as it has a super wide range; it can literally travel across half of the map. Use it to start a fight, end one and even turn the tides of battle. When the enemy has almost captured the Kraken and all your teammates are immobilized, you can shoot Solar Storm all the way from your base if you don't have the time to run there for a steal. You just have to aim it properly and hope it works xD.

Start out with an Energy Battery if you're laning alone.
In my opinion there really isn't much use for a defensive item since if Celeste is being ganked by enemy players, you're pretty much toast. However, it is good to keep a Reflex Block on hand as it blocks most heroes' ultimates. For example, activating Reflex Block can allow you to exit Ardan's Gauntlet without being stunned so that would make for an easy escape for Celeste. If you need to, you can upgrade this to Aegis but your gold is better spent on ability items.
Celeste synergises well with blue items as most of her damage is crystal. Shatterglass This is an important purchase as it buffs your crystal damage by 150.
The 50 crystal power from Eve of Harvest adds on to the 150 from Shatterglass to give you a decent damage output. Most Celeste builds will include this item, but I wouldn't advise stacking it.
The cooldown acceleration helps if you have to replace clockwork with another item, most likely a shield.
Booties. Need I say more.
For the last item, take your pick. Clockwork for better cooldown and Shatterglass for ridiculous amounts of damage.
