Threat Hero Notes
1
Flicker Flicker provides almost no threat to Baptiste, due to slow-activating abilities and little durability.
1
Skaarf Skaarf possesses slightly more offense than Flicker, but his abilities are extremely easy to dodge.
1
Ringo Ringo is easy to take out with almost any hero. Keep him Ordained and stunned for quick kills.
2
Petal Petal's maneuverability and companions make her a slight nuisance, but otherwise another easy target.
3
Blackfeather Blackfeather requires precision in his attacks. An effective dodge or two will leave him vulnerable.
3
Churnwalker Churnwalker can only be effective if he lands a hook on you. Stay out of the way and dodge his hooks to cripple him.
3
Fortress Fortress is weakened when isolated, and is only a threat if you are caught far away from cover.
3
Grumpjaw Grumpjaw is more defense than offense. Whittle him down and avoid his Ult to score an easy kill.
3
Phinn Phinn is slow, tanky, and easy to dodge. Poke and dodge works well here.
4
Alpha Alpha's resurrection ability poses a threat if Baptiste is worn down and cannot eliminate her, but she is otherwise decently easy to tackle.
4
Catherine Catherine is dangerous if you cannot effectively utilize Reflex Block, but can otherwise be easily negated.
4
Celeste Celeste is a glass cannon, but her ranged attacks and global Ult can destroy Baptiste if you aren't cautious.
4
Grace Grace's stun and healing abilities make it harder for Baptiste to secure kills, but overall are not major threats.
4
Reim Reim is a glass cannon who only succeeds if you let him keep you locked down.
5
Baron Because his basic attack is not only ranged, but possesses splash damage, Baron can hold Baptiste off fairly well.
5
Lorelai Lorelai is a powerful healer with easily avoidable damage/stun abilities. Be aware and you will be fine.
5
Ozo Ozo can be squishy or deadly, depending on how you handle yourself. Just don't get caught out of place.
6
Ardan Ardan's Gauntlet pins Baptiste in easily, leaving him trapped for execution during team fights.
6
Baptiste Baptiste is only as dangerous as you allow him to be.
6
Idris Idris is a fairly mixed bag. Nothing too threatening, but nothing making him an easy target.
6
Lyra Lyra's portals and healing can be annoying if she shuffles you into an ambush, but ashe is still a glass cannon healer.
6
Reza NO INFORMATION AT THIS TIME. WILL UPDATE SOON
7
Adagio Adagio's heal-stun combo is dangerous if used during a team fight against Baptiste.
7
Glaive Glaive's Afterburn can displace and stun Baptiste for a quick kill. Avoid risking a duel if you can.
7
Joule Joule is easier to take down when she is retreating, but her stun can leave Baptiste open for revenge.
7
Kestrel Kestrel's global Ult and ranged attacks make her a nuisance, similar to Celeste. However, she is more durable than Celeste.
7
SAW Saw's Roadie Run can OHKO Baptiste if Baptiste has taken any damage prior.
8
Lance Lance is capable of rearranging Baptiste however he needs to. Stay away or poke quickly.
8
Rona Rona can be a threat if she gets close enough to you. Kite and poke, don't chase.
8
Samuel Samuel's stun and range can be difficult to avoid, but he is not incredibly durable.
8
Skye Skye's ranged barrages make it nearly impossible to survive an encounter.
8
Varya Varya's range and global Ult can kill a reckless Baptiste easily.
8
Vox Vox is capable of delivering a ranged silence and keeping you weakened with his ranged attacks.
9
  No Threat
10
Gwen Gwen's abilities and ranged attacks are deadly for Baptiste. Avoid Gwen at all costs!
10
Koshka Koshka is capable of destroying Baptiste if he strays too close to her.
10
Krul Krul is a deadly force no matter who you play as. Avoid him and his stun like the plague.
10
Taka Taka's speed and deadly burst damage combos can quickly end a Baptiste in the mid-to-late game.

Introduction to Basic Baptiste Strategies Top

If you decide to play Baptiste at all, there are a few key strategies and facts you need to know first.
  • Baptiste's Heroic Perk Reap allows for healing and massive damage buffs.
  • Baptiste's abilities can be spammable if you maintain your energy and cooldown speed.
  • To maximize his burst damage, use Reap until you get all 4 Soul Charges, then use Bad Mojo for a devastating effect.
  • Baptiste's Fearsome Shade can be used to escape a fast enemy or buy time for your allies to retreat. Gauge the situation and use when necessary.
  • Ordained is hard to see at times, especially when an opponent is already fleeing. Use that to your advantage and stun them to clean up any stragglers after a team fight.
  • In the mid-game, most heroes don't have lots of Shields built up yet. Use this to your advantage and chain your abilities together to snag an easy kill.

With those out of the way, we can look at the main portion of this build.

Purpose of this Build Top

This build is meant to balance Baptiste's basic attacks with his abilities, allowing for frequent Reap activations and massive crystal damage.

Abilities Top

I made the first column 65px in width, since I knew I'd be adding a 50x50 icon to it. This way there is nice spacing between my icon and my text. This is a generally useful code for explaining abilities, classes, what have you, as people can find the icons easily then read the text!
