Threat Hero Notes

Idris Honestly, this depends mostly on 1. Does he attack faster and 2. Can you outlast him? This would usually be a yes but his diversity makes this a toss up.
0
Ozo This will remain blank as I've fought a total of one Ozo as this build and the match ended because of an AFK.
1
Ardan While he can trap you, most of the time you can simply Step out of it. His shield is temporary and his punch rarely puts the hurt on you.
1
Celeste Same problem as Baron, except you literally have to let her snare you to lose.
1
Reim You'll dance circles around the ice mage and introduce him to death often.
1
Skaarf You can practically make "stop hitting yourself," jokes here.
2
Kestrel If you can avoid her Active Camo she can't kill you, especially if you Step in and get your shield.
2
Samuel Don't be fooled, you can make this guy miss quite often and punish him for it.
2
Vox He does about the same as his twin. Kill him often and you'll find he can't do a whole lot.
3
Baron Just because of his Ultimate does he get this high of a threat level. Idris was born to drain the life out of this bespectacled pinhead. As long as you make him waste his Ultimate and a shell or two where you AREN'T he can't kill you.
3
Phinn I love Phinn, but he's bad at keeping up with faster heroes and it shows here.
3
SAW You'll be in and out in no time. Just avoid in the early game as he still has one of the best early games.
4
Glaive His bulk can keep him going but most Glaive players fall by the wayside when pitted power for power. His stun can be troublesome, so build an Aegis immediately after your primary core weapons.
4
Lance Bothersome, but nothing to mess with you if you dodge his skills. If you get rooted, but get out before he attempts to stun you, Step away and punish him with Chakram.
4
Ringo Bump the rating up if you're fighting a crystal Ringo, because that fireball, if not dodged, hurts. He's likely going to be your lane opponent in most cases.
5
  No Threat
6
Adagio Able to buff and heal who you're fighting you may be tempted to kill him first. Do your best to not be kited, as he can lure you to your death with ease. This mostly applies to his being Captain , but don't underestimate his other roles.
6
Blackfeather Honestly it comes down to who is farther along in their build. Blackfeather truly embodies luck of the draw against Idris. If you make his B skill miss, you won't have any problems.
6
Lyra Does better than her muscleheaded counterpart, her Barrier can stuff your Ultimate as well as your Step. Otherwise, her bad defense makes her an easy kill if you can get to her.
6
Rona If she catches you, you won't make it because of Red Mist. Don't let her dictate when and where you fight, be the aggressor and use your A to retreat when the blender dance starts.
6
Skye Unlike her idiot husband, she can shred you, fast. Try to keep your A up so when she does her inevitable Suri Strike, you can dodge her predicted Forward Barrage.
7
Flicker Flicker's cheap ability to disappear and how your Captain deals with it will make him either a threat or a joke.
7
Fortress Can pursue like Catherine, albeit he can't mess with you as much. Losing your ambush because he calls his pack can be brought back as you will usually hit so fast that he can't respond.
7
Joule She's tough, and unlike you she doesn't need defense to defend against you. An early to mid game threat, Idris players need to be aware of the threat of her Big Red Button as a CP build.
8
Catherine The Stormguard Queen really isn't to be trifled with. Her stun will doom you, as well as her silence. Even one on one she can kill you... If you weren't restoring your health.
8
Koshka Pouncy Fun will ruin your shield without your seeing it coming and set you up for death. Proceed with caution and consider killing her first if she proves to be the deciding factor in a fight.
8
Krul While the king of one on one fights may reign supreme, he needs time that you can use against him. Buy a Pauldron as your defense item, and provided he misses his stuns, you should shred his face.
9
Alpha Quite possibly the PvP queen, she can dish out the hurt and chase you down. If she's being built as CP, buy an Aegis ASAP, or else her explosion will kill you.
9
Taka There's a good chance that X-Retsu will kill you, either by damage, damage over time or the Mortal Wound.
10
Gwen Do not engage this woman, ever. If she's kept up on items with you and you don't build against her, she will decimate and leave you by the side of the road like a sack of dirt. Her damage output rivals yours and she can dodge your chakram with ease.
10
Petal I don't know how much crack her creator had the day she was conceived but Petal will destroy you 90% of the time. Her Munions can destroy your health, and until you're hitting her your life steal won't mean a thing.

Let's face it, the new guy to the Fold has quite a few strategies, from WP to CP, you never know what this guy will pull out of his hat. So here's a few ways I found out on how to make this guy a pure killer.

Many people start out getting his perk unlocked (or both for some) but you're not doing that here. "But Urza, you just don't get it, he can't live without his divergent paths being online!" He can and will. You're a glass cannon of death by becoming a glass vampire cannon.

First things first, here's the final build.
Serpents Mask, Sorrowblade, Boots (typically Journey but Chargers work in some situations), Aegis or Metal Jacket. For secondary weapons, choose between Tornado Trigger, Breaking point and then Tyrants Monocle, Bonesaw.

Here's the scoop. Start off in the lane with a Blade and Book. Don't engage your enemy as his low defense and easy gank can ruin your early game. With good timing, your chakram can get you easy gold, while you get good health back per minion kill.

Next, build Sprint Boots, but by the time the shops load, that's it. Get a Potion or two if you want increased longevity, but you want that Mask pronto. Now, you get to that point and you have the Mask, so work on the Sorrowblade. If, and only if, you're finding your defenses (or teammates, hahahahahahaha*hauled away*) lacking, work on the equipment to counter that particular threat. Most of the time it will be the Aegis, but there may be times when the Jacket does better and you don't need the Reflex Block. By the time minute 10 rolls around, you should already have the tier 1 boots, the Mask and the Sorrowblade.

This is where it gets tricky. Usually at this point, you're either flying high because you've killed many people, or you've been getting your face kicked in. If it's the former, move onto your speed item and then defense. If it's the other way, consider only building one more item for damage and obtaining, in addition to Aegis/Jacket, a Slumbering Husk. This thing was almost made for Idris.

Either way, stick with your team only going to lane if a turret is threatened by a mass amount of minions or enemy heroes. You should be trying to lock down that Ace, and by minute 15 you should be at level 12, 11 if the PVP fights haven't occurred often.

Never chase with your ultimate. Shimmer Strike may cool down fast with the right build, but it's not an instant event and you'll likely die if an enemy carts you off while you are attached to them.

If all has gone even somewhat well, your ability to steal health should make you a tank of sorts and be able to fight off many enemies. Hope you liked this guide and let me know what you think!
