SAW Try to [[kaiten]] over him. If fail, use [[kaku] to regain health and escape, or kill him.
3
  No Threat
4
Kestrel Make sure to use [[kaku]] after [[kestrel]] use [[active camo]] then go near your team captain or near turret.
5
Flicker Usually he is roam so he will be coming with a teammate. If he use his B ability, use [[kaku]] and reflex block to cancel slow effect and sneak away.
6
  No Threat
7
Reim Very tanky. However, dodge all his ice spikes aka his A ability so he cannot gain fortified health. You can move very swiftly thanks to your heroic perk.
8
  No Threat
9
Krul Be aware! Do not sit there and let your AA do the work and hope to win. Kaiten and immediately [[kaku]] to make yourself untargetable and heal up then continue attacking. Hit and run if necessary.

The battle for the Halcyon Fold has begun Top

Buy Swift Shooter and a Weapon Blade and a Halcyon Potion. This will help you farm and sustain in jungle. Try to not invade enemy jungle unless you have a strong roamer. Upgrade your Kaiten as much as possible and use it to avoid being rooted by jungle creeps. You should farm until at least Level 2 before helping out in lane if needed at all. If not, just farm because you need a lot of gold. Taka , Koshka are two of the most gold hungry assasin in the game in my opinion.

4min mark Top

Go the the jungle shop or back to base if low health from helping in lane to buy Tension Bow and a Weapon Blade if you have enough gold. Keep this up until around 8min and by 8min you should at least have Reflex Block and Sprint Boots.

8min mark Top

Now you can roam around the bushes of lane, be unpredictable with your positions by using Kaku. Wait for the enemy laner to come near the center for easy kill. Use basic attacks to damage and Kaiten when need to secure the kill or save yourself. Go back to the jungle when your laner is safe to farm. Build towards higher tier items. Prioritise your SPEED. Damage comes second. You need to crit. Some might want to go for Sorrowblade first for damage but if it works its not stupid.

15min mark Top

Now you should have all your weapon offensive items at Tier 3 and a Reflex Block and Sprint Boots. Offense is your priority, defense, not so much since you have Kaku.

Situational items Top

1. Use Aftershock instead of a second Tornado Trigger if your enemy has high HP.
2. Use Atlas Pauldron if your opponent is a WP Krul or a WP Glaive.
3. If your opponent build lots of armour or is very tanky, such as Phinn, use bone saw instead of second Tornado Trigger.
4. Tyrant's Monocle can be replaced by a Bonesaw or Breaking Point if you need meet sustain or tanky enemy. This means your damage upon contact is lower but if kept up for a few seconds, you can see them trying to run, chase with any of your abilities.

Tips and Tricks Top

1. Use Kaiten to block CC and high damage
2. Use Kaku to heal up and reappear again to continue killing and stay healthy
3. Try to maintain House Kamuha stacks and use X-Retsu as a fight initiator to gain 3 stacks of House Kamuha.
4. When attacking, use your speed to move around the target swiftly to dodge abilities.
5. At level 5, do not spend the skill point on Kaku. It is very tempting but once you are level 6, you can have level 4 Kaiten and level 1 X-Retsu
6. If you have sneaky opponent, buy flare instead of scout traps to reveal any scout traps and enemy because you want to know what's there before engaging
7. Die less, you are often on a kill streak so die less to prevent enemy getting too much gold
8. Never use Kaiten for damage only unless you can kill the opponent. It is better used to avoid being damaged or CC-ed
9. Do not try to chase enemy that hides behind turret even though low health. You never know who's there and you are very vulnerable to damage
10. Kill, and disappear
11. Kaku can be used to chase fleeing enemy
12. When you are fleeing, once you use Kaku, go the opposite direction you were heading because usually the hunter will keep going the same direction (or go to the side if your opponents are smart. Just be weird)
13. When enemy Vain Crystal is vulnerable (all turrets destroyed), hide in brush, use Kaku to sneak pass enemies and destroy Vain Crystal secretly.

Hope you learned something! Top

I will update this guide if I learn something new or there is a major nerf/buff for Taka.

Thanks for reading, have fun in the Halcyon Fold.

Sincerely, Faey Top
