Threat Hero Notes
1
Celeste Pretty squishy, so it's an easy kill. Be careful cuz she can zone.
1
Varya Extremely squishy, but is pretty quick. Be careful.
2
Baron This kid can zone and nuke you anywhere, so be careful of Kim Jong Un.
2
SAW This boi here is so annoying that you want to kermit suicide. Luckily, he is slow af, so you cna chase him, but watch out for his all his abilities.
3
Kestrel She is sneaky, so throw your fidget spinner in the bush to check. Dodge her abilities.
4
Adagio Pretty annoying when he can heal himself. Don't worry, you have Poisoned shiv, so that's good. I guess...
4
Vox He zips around at the speed of sound. SO stay out of range of his resonance. Pretty squishy so I guess it's all good? Depends of his build.
5
Ringo Ringo is pretty dangerous late game, so kill him as early as you can.
6
Baptiste Super annoying with his perk and all. Luckily, again, you have poisoned shiv to slowly stop his healing.
6
Blackfeather A really dangerous swordsman. If the player is using Wp BF, then you will have a bad time :))) If CP, then most of his power is in his B, so you're ok for now.
7
Alpha Alpha is pretty good when it comes to killing in the bushes. She can use her A and instantly kill you depending on the build. Be wary that she can reboot herself.
7
Taka Pretty sneaky and annoying with his cardboard box. He can instantly kill you if being chased. Hopefully, you can kill him before he does first.
7
Churnwalker Very annoying when he drains your HP away. You have PS, so it's good for now.
7
Rona Honestly, if depends on the Rona player.
8
Ardan Pretty tough to fight if alone. Pair up with a team member to kill him. Poisoned shiv would be a great help considering that he heals.
8
Flicker Be wary of his invisibility. He can come out of no where and kill you, if he can that is. Usually bad when you are being cornered of double-teamed.
8
Skye Zips around the Rise/Fold quickly. Be cautious approaching.
8
Catherine Pretty hard to play since she has stun.
8
Samuel Can zone you out, so you better stop. But he is killable if left alone.
8
Lyra Same here with Samuel. Lyra can zone you out so watch out for her abilities and perk.
8
Joule Pretty dangerous when alone. Don't worry, I think your captain can watch your back. if not then oh well.
9
Fortress Fortress is a nuisance to deal with when alone. Be sure to be with your team to be safe.
9
Lance Lance can stab you to the ground if you don't dodge his A. Be careful when approaching bcuz you may not know how to kill him.
9
Gwen Be careful when approaching because she can instantly do massive damage to you.
9
Koshka She can instantly kill you if you are not careful. Watch out for her stun.
9
Reza When playing a Reza, be careful when he uses his abilities. Does massive damage.
9
Grace Really fast for a tank. Stay out of her A and B. Remember she can massively heal herself.
9
Lorelai A slippery captain to play against. She can slow you down pretty well. You are pretty much a sitting duck if you don't act.
9
Petal Watch out for her ult. In a few seconds, the only thing you will see are bright colors of your death.
9
Phinn He is such a troll (haha) catch out for his Ult and other abilities. Don't let him get fortifies health.
9
Reim Try not to engage in a 1v1 with Reim. He is dangerous when he has fortified health.
10
Krul Try not to 1v1 him. His lifesteal is good, so be wary. If you do not have a poisoned shiv, then you are pretty much screwed for this game. You can nullify his vampirism.
10
Glaive Can chase you til you die. his stun will annoy you so be mindful.
10
Grumpjaw Really dangerous when alone. He will eat you like he does with cheese.
10
Tony Do not 1v1. He can destrucc you instantly. Only engage in teamfights.

Intro Top

Hello! I'm SalamanderSword. I know, lame name. But, we are getting into my most favorite hero of all time, Idris. I will explain his gameplay with Wp and Cp builds. Playing Idris is pretty fun and etc. This guide is mainly for laning, so if you want to jungle, try to find another guide. Have fun reading.

How to Play Idris, the sandy boy Top

Idris is an amazing assassin, for laning and jungling. He has good mobility and great pokes. These can lead to many killing opportunities and teamfights. Most of his combos come from his Chakram which you should max out first. It is also a great poking tool as well.

Abilities Top

Perk: Divergent Paths

This is one of Idris 's most unique features about him. His perk lets him choose to be an weapon assassin or crystal mage. You need to have 100 weapon or crystal power to unlock these powers.

Weapon path: Lets [Idris] have his Shroudstep turn into a blink, which can help a lot depending on the situation.
Crystal path: Gives Idris ranged basic attacks and lets him leap farther from his [ shimmer strike].


A Ability: Shroudstep

Let me introduce you to his A ability, Shroudstep. It basically lets Idris roll/blink (if building weapon power) in a direction to where his next basic attack becomes empowered. If you have not taken any damage in the last 4-5 seconds, you are granted a temporary barrier. You can use this ability to chase your enemies as well as dodging skillshots or ranged abilities. This ability should be maxed out if you are going for weapon Idris.


B Ability: Chakram

Here is Idris's most useful ability in his arsenal. When he activates this ability, he throws out a Chakram in a direction the player chooses. As the Chakram reaches its full range, it goes back to Idris, similar to a boomerang. It is EXTREMELY useful for combos. If you time your Shimmer Strike or Shroudstep carefully, you can make Idris pass through the Chakram. There are many ridiculous combos with this ability. Oh wait, every time the chakram passes through [Idris]], it still does damage to the enemy, and you should max this ability regardless of the wp/cp builds.


Ult: Shimmer Strike

Last but not least, is Shimmer Strike. Idris locks onto the enemy for 1.2 seconds and 2.8 seconds on an ally. During this time, he is completely INVULNERABLE, meaning that he can't be hit until he jumps out of the ally/opponent. You can have Idris jump out of Shimmer Strike by tapping in a direction, or just not by doing anything and letting him jump back to his original position. This can be comboed with his Chakram.

Strategies for Idris in 5v5 Top

So here we are on the Sovereign's Rise! As for playing Idris, you should go top/bottom lane if you are playing weapon. For crystal builds, go for middle lane, but top and bottom work just as fine.

Early Game: 0:00 - 5:50

Starting with Weapon:
First, you would want to buy a Weapon Blade and a Book of Eulogies. Start heading to the top/bottom lane with or without your captain. Obviously, upgrade your Chakram ability first and place scout cams around the bushes. Use your B to do damage on minions and you should also start poking the enemy if he/she/it is in the lane. If you survive well enough, then you should start grabbing that Poisioned Shiv you've been saving up. And score a few kills.


Starting with Crystal
Now, we are onto the crystal path. Buy a Crystal Bit and a Swift Shooter. Go to your lane that you picked. Try not to have your stupid teammates annoying by taking your farm and stealing your lane. Also, do the same as your would with weapon, but farming and staying alive, as well as score a few kills. After you have a lot of gold, buy your Alternating Current and continue.


OH WAIT. Grab some boots too.

Early-Mid game: 5:51 - 13:59
Now that you got some core items, you should now continue laning. If there are any teammates in danger, try to help them out and maybe even score some kills and maybe stealing some. Next, you should start pushing for turrets and start farming gold and obtain a weapon or crystal orb from treants. Just do as much farming as you can, and when you have enough, buy the next item depending on your build. (Please look at the top to find the builds suitable for your playstyle.) Try to steal jungle camps and get some gold.


Mid Game: 14:00 - 17:30
Okay, it's now midgame, so it depends whether you can synergize with your team. DO NOT ENGAGE IN A TEAMFIGHT ON YOUR OWN BECAUSe WILL YOU DIE. Use your vision efficiently. Also, max out your Chakram.


Mid-Late Game: 17:31 - 21:31
Now here is only one of the highlights on Idris here. As soon as you have your almost completed/completed build, it's time to play hitman and kill everyone with skill, precision, and your fidget spinner. Be strategic with approaches.


Late game: 21:31 - ???
Lastly, it's late game. This is where Idris really belongs. You can become a god if you play a good Idris in late game. It all depends on your team though. Try to steal Blackclaw or Ghostwing with team. If anything goes wrong, stay cool and try to play efficiently
.

If you win your game, then good for you. If not, then there are always other heroes or matches to be played.

Thanks for reading this guide!! Top

Cya later.
