Threat Hero Notes
1
Ardan No threat at all, happy days if he is in enemy team
1
Adagio Happy dominating this poor helpless adagio.. his only threat is the slow , counter his ultimate with reflex block or your stun
1
Glaive BOSS HIM AROUND AS MUCH AS YOU LIKE!
2
Catherine She wont deal much damage to you, but can be a nuisance with her stun and shield/silence watch out in team fights.
2
SAW early game threat sure, but hes nothing compared to you late game
2
Petal Not much to say here really, watch out for her ult
3
  No Threat
4
Celeste Not much of a danger if you avoid her skills, also beware of her ultimate! Despite that she is easy to kill and gank if you time your stun and slow
4
Ringo Very few players can counter krul with ringo, if you can land your stun and slow hes done, also hes great to gank , so push him around :)
5
Krul may the best krul win :)
6
Joule You are very similar heroes, both are very strong late game! SO DON'T LET HER FEED!!
6
Taka Early game he will be a pain, but If theres an enemy taka i suggest all team has one or two flares. Despite that a good krul can kill him quite easily with a smart stun,slow and don't forget to pop a flare when hes low health :P
7
  No Threat
8
Koshka She is a pain early game , so avoid her as much as possible.. However late game she is no match for you (watch out for her stun)
8
Skaarf Again he is strong early game , beware of the jungle duo (KOSHKA AND SKARF) . Despite that late game he is quite weak aganst you , time your stun against his ultimate and recover your health against his burn
8
Vox THIS GUY IS A PAIN IN THE ASS! Watch out his sonic zoom and ultimate, you have to be very careful with your stun and slow here, play smart and safe

General Krul Tips ( This is my first guide , hope you enjoy it ) Top

Krul is the weakest hero early game. Dont engage enemy unless your team has skarf or koskha. ALSO IF ENEMY HAS SKARF OR KOSKHA (OR EVEN BOTH) AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

Good players will invade your jungle to stop you farming, make sure your support has plenty of mines and flares. ALSO YOU MUST HAVE FLARES AND POTIONS YOURSELF! ( i spend about 500 gold on both per game) can save your life and team. Good Vision= Organised game play and lets you stay on top of the enemy.

Krul play is smart , use your head for strategic advantage (DON'T FORGET TO UTILISE YOUR PERK)

In my Opinion shiver steel is essential for each build! ( DON'T FORGET TO USE IT)

Infusions are crucial! USE THEM!

There are many variations to Krul , try them all.

Dont get isolated!

Be smart when trying to gank enemy.

Time your stun and slow correctly , dont waste them.

Mid game is where its won , Build accordingly.

If You are winning , try going more offensive

If you are losing go more defensive , for sustained damage

If youre not tank krul ( build either aegis or metal jacket) let your support get at least one fountain

Never max your ultimate! ( max your A and B skills ASAP)

If you see an isolated enemy, go and kill him... BUT! make sure he is alone.. Sometimes i get too aggressive and end up being caught off guard.

REMEMBER! the bush is your friend, try to hide from enemy in unlikely places and flank them.

Upgrade your boots last!

Every Build has a core, but don't always expect an easy game, sometimes i end up building defense items early on , then late game they cant stop me!

Guys the most important thing is to actually play for yourself! But its crucial that you see krul more than just one build hero since i adapt my build every game and SO SHOULD YOU! Try to see krul as a connection of possibilities and combine different strategies to achieve a winning formula! For example, once you've built breaking point and shiver, you can buy a barbed needle for lifesteal to increase the sustain on your B skill, combine that with weapon infusion and he can ace whole team with full health if done correctly!

Weapon Krul Top

The good thing about this build is that if you're able to get shivesteel and breaking point fast , then its most likely end game for enemy.

Time your fights, stun and slow and you will win. Try play smart and build breaking point stack first!

I have a few items in the CORE section so you an experiment which fits you best !

The main combination here is shiver and Breaking point!

Then after you have these two its your choice what to build next;

Defense = If you're winning i don't suggest building defense since it will slow you down ( Look to buy infusions or more damage)

Clock Work = This is usually the next item i build since it gives nice energy boost and great cool down decrease, makes me hard to kill ( also fairly cheap)

Serpent Mask = I tried this in a few games and quite frankly this is amazing... The Lifesteal is huge when youre also building stacks on enemy since you also have high attack speed.

Bonesaw = This item ive never actually had the time to build since we've already won ;) But i think it will do some serious damage combined with breaking point

Tornado Trigger = This would work nicely with breaking point since the damage would increase at a relentless pace! BEWARE OF ENEMY ATLAS! ( Good Players will look to counter you with at least two atlases)

Tension Bow = This item should be the last thing on your mind , you should only build this if you have too much money, this will boost your armor pierce and increase damage on your A skill ( also provides a decent burst damage)

Crystal Krul Top

I remember the days when every krul player only built aftershock and clockwork... it was fun sure , but i got so bored of the same build so i created my own ones which im sharing with you now :) Despite that it dosent mean that Crystal Krul is obsolete ( Try building this if they are heavy Armour)

Also the aftershock gives nice burst damage and bigger health barrier. Additionally that combined with clockwork your cool down is minuscule so you can spam them to death with your abilities as you build stacks.

The problem i find with crystal is that its more expensive

Despite that , the main items here are aftershock and clockwork.

After that you can decide on what you build.

Defense = it would make you even harder to kill.

Broken Myth = This would increase the damage of your abilities nicely

Eve Of Harvest = This essentially would work as a serpent mask , It provides you with some life steal, bonus energy and crystal power!

Frostburn = This is also on the list ,but try to avoid building this item since you already have shiversteel and stun

Alternating Current = Again this is an item i recommend building last ( You're better off getting blazing salvo and infusions)

Hybrid Krul Top

This works nice to confuse the enemy so they dont know what defense to get, try to counter enemy :)

Works very Nicely :)

This is a nice combination.

The main items here would be shiversteel,Breaking point and Aftershock.

After you have your core, take a look at what enemy built. Try to buy items to counter that specifically and exploit their weakness. Alternitively by this point try to suffocate enemy ASAP and buy both infusions for great advantage.

Tank Krul Top

Tank Krul is legit if you have strong carries!

You can adapt the skills from other tanks like ardan and cath in terms of mine placement, build etc

BUT.. He is difficult to play so you have to be very focused!

For a tank krul you dont need more than two defense items, expect your teammates to have the reflex block, so dont bother with crucible!

Dont forget to build some damage , in this case clockwork would also do nicely to spam your skills !

A good suggestion would be trying to build a serpent mask on a tank krul. He is very hard to take down and the more stacks he builds the higher his life steal gets( can go up to 180, i had that in one game XD) YOU WILL BE THE LAST MAN STANDING ( but lets hope your allies survive too :p)

Hope you enjoyed it! Top
