Koshka As long as she isn't using this build, not too difficult to beat

Adagio Like anyone else, if you are not in his face, do not let him get too close
6
Krul Do not initiate on his terms. Catch him off guard

About Top

Bloodrush
Koshka gains bonus move speed, armor & shield whenever she hits enemy heroes with an ability.

Pouncy Fun
Koshka dashes to the target enemy and deals damage. Pounce cool down is reduced by 2 seconds each time she executes a basic attack. Each ability point spent on Pouncey Fun increases its damage and energy cost and accelerates its cool down.

Twirly Death
Koshka twirls, damaging all enemies around her. She gains a boosted basic attack for each enemy hit by the twirl (up to 12). Twirl cool down is reduced by 2 seconds each time she executes a basic attack. Each ability point spent increases its damage and energy cost and accelerates its cool down. Each point also further boosts basic attack power for each enemy hit by the twirl.

Yummy Catnip Frenzy
Koshka leaps at her target then launches into a flurry of slashes, stunning the target for the entire 2.2 second duration. Cool down is reduced by 1 second each time she executes a basic attack. Each ability point spent on Yummy Catnip Frenzy increases its damage, stun duration and energy cost and accelerates its cool down.

Things to know Top

Koshka is a gorilla warfare fighter: You wait till its on your terms, attack then get out of town!

She can be squishy (takes damage fast) so don't jump into a large group on your own

She has the ability to get out of situations easily via Bloodrush

Tactics Top

Starting:
Get Energy Battery and two Halcyon Potion and grind your heart out! Remember, just keep grinding, just keep grinding.... You will hit lvl 12 when everyone else is 7-10!

Level 5/6:
You can start conquering mines as they are available but be careful. Koshka is great with burst damage with this build, but do not jump into an enemy group. You will lose. If someone is charging you, better to retreat until you can choose when/where to initiate.

Level 6+:
Do everything you can to keep grinding and leveling. You want to stay at least 2+ levels ahead of everyone. Easiest way to do that is to grind.


Attack pattern/Strategy:

PVP Battles:
WARNING.....before lvl 6, avoid fighting other players unless it is completely on your terms. Your main focus should be to hit lvl 12 as fast as possible. If you come upon a mob and an enemy is fighting them, TAKE HIM OUT!!! Then take out the mob :) DO NOT ENGAGE if the enemy player has any other players next to him.

If the fight is on your terms (you catch him grinding on a mob), take the following steps;

No other characters in the area:
Start off with a Pouncy Fun then spam Twirly Death. By the time he realizes whats going on, he should be less than half health. Once he tries to run, catch him with Yummy Catnip Frenzy. You will catch up to him and stun him. If you still have not finished him off by then, your Pouncy Fun should have cooled down by now. ***Special thanks to Leonet for this 1v1 attack strategy

Possibility of other characters in the area:
Refer to "VS Players" below. You want to maximize damage and get out of Dodge.

***Item Priority***
After getting Energy Battery, the next thing you NEED to go for is Aftershock. The bonus damage and life steal will help propel you throughout the rest of the game. Start heading towards Alternating Current and Aftershock. After you acquire Aftershock, get Sprint Boots then work towards Shatterglass.

VS bots:
Pouncy Fun to initiate then spam Twirly Death

VS players:
Yummy Catnip Frenzy to initiate fight then spam Twirly Death. Should be less than half health after initial volley. Use Pouncy Fun to catch runners or to leap to new target after your first one dies.

***Enemy with Shield Build***
If you notice your enemies are going with a tank/shield build (which you should check in on everyones build from time to time), you need to change it up. Biggest switch will be swapping Tornado Trigger for Broken Myth. After you level up a bit and get some items (around lvl 10) sell your Energy Battery or Void Battery (depending on how high you went). That will give you the needed slot for Tornado Trigger or Broken Myth which will help you cut through their armor..............Shout out to Dshi009. Thanks!
