About Me Top
My name is Infernious (also known as DatBurn), a leader of Team iStardusts. I started to play Vainglory almost a year and half now. A year ago, I used Vainglory Fire to help myself become better when I started and saw how useful it was. So now I'm here, making a guide for you all to give my advice about this game.
is a new "roam" hero that joined the Fold in update 1.18. His ability to protect and engage helps him shine among the other heroes. His unique abilities help withering down group of enemies all at once which makes him effective.
He has the tankiness of
, the ability to engage just like
and ability to protect his team mates just like
is a great roam hero in the right hands and can easily turn the tides of a team fight. This is my first attempt on making a guide on Vainglory Fire and I hope you find this guide useful.
Please excuse my lack of knowledge of this website for I cannot create a flashy and pleasing guide but bear with me.
's passive is
. His basic attacks deal damage to all enemies along his path in cost of his attack speed. With his super long ranged basic attack, this passive helps farming and damaging the enemies. This passive works well with Shiversteal for it can apply slow to multiple targets if done correctly. Instead of energy, Lance uses Stamina for his abilities. Buying crystal items will increase his maximum stamina and stamina regeneration.
is a skill shot that can root enemies within the path (Lasts up to 1.6 seconds). Lance will recover from his animation if he successfully roots an enemy or any objective. However, upon a miss, it will take longer for him to get out of his animation. Overdriving this ability will reset the cool down of his [[Combat Roll on a successful impale.
Just a little secret I figured out during his first week of debut on his Halcyon Fold. I was messing around with him in a Solo Practice match and found out that his
can let Lance walk over some walls. When he uses his
he takes a step forward and that's when the wall jump executes. Also keep in mind to be careful of using
on enemies right in fromt of you because there is a possibility that you will miss due to his animation.
Gythian's Wall is
's B. Passively, Lance strafes around the opponent he recently basic attacked for few seconds and holds his shield up. This reduces the damages coming to him. When you activate this ability, Lance sweeps infront of him and knock enemies back within the range and the holds a defensive position. This reduces the damage he receives greatly. When enemy becomes knocked back into a structure/wall, he or she will be stunned. Overdriving this ability will make
immune to any crowd controls such as slow and stuns.
is his ultimate. Lance rolls into a direction he chooses and quickly strike his enemy dealing additional crystal damage. "They see me rolling, they hating". Lance can use this ability to roll through walls (or just roll into walls and cry about how you failed. It's ok. I feel you).
Play Styles Top
You are a wall. A moving wall. A wall that hurts people and smacks them a few times. Be aggressive. Many roamers refuse to engage the enemies but to make the best out of
, you are gonna have to do it. Weaken the enemies. Soak up the damage and isolate the enemies. Use your
to slow your enemies down from reaching your carries or to stop them from escaping. Lance has great combos such as rolling into enenmies, rooting them then rolling behind them once more to finish them off by pushing the enenmy into your team mates. This was just an example of a combo you can do with Lance.
Don't be afraid of taking damage from turret to dive for the enemy to secure and ace. Your carries will appreciate you as they chase the enemy unharmed. A simple job of roam.
Oh and you want to make flashy plays? When you see that Kestrel's ultimate blinking, roll into it and take it for your team. They will love you. (Note: it's a difficult thing to do).
AVOID checking the bush with your A (especially in late game). Upon a miss, you will be forced to watch
struggle to pull his sword out of the ground as the enemies rush your carries who are now vulnerable. Instead use a flare.
Also be careful with
. The range is quite short so don't make full of yourself cutting the air and holding your shield up at your enemies who are now laughing at what you did. You done goofed.
Also you can't take
's ultimate for your team. Don't even bother trying to block it when it clearly targeting your ally. (Use crucible instead).
Thank you for reading this horribly written guide by the salt master Infernious. It is really difficult to make a guide on a new hero. Before you go to the comment section and start complaining about how
should be played, not that this is just one of the ways you can play [[Lance]. However I would really appreciate friendly and NaCl-free comments about this guide so I can improve on making guides.
