Threat Hero Notes
1
  No Threat
2
Adagio Adagio's fire slow and ultimate are minor problems which can be mitigated by Crucible or your ultimate.
2
Joule Joule dies easily to you and her abilities can be juked effortlessly.
3
Skaarf Skaarf's Fan the Flames damage is annoying, but he has no surefire way to escape from ganks. Try to stun him when he is charging his ultimate.
3
Petal CP Petal's Frostburn is a bit of a pain, along with her seeds healing her on the go. She's rather frail, however, and will die quickly to a well-timed gank.
4
Ringo Ringo's slow and ultimate are problems for you. This can be partially solved by Yummy Catnip Frenzy when he is charging up Hellfire Brew
4
Ardan Ardan's tankiness is the only reason he is a threat, as he can keep you occupied while his allies catch up to you. His Gauntlet will cut you off, as well, so be careful. Crucible can be used to bypass Gauntlet's perimeter.
4
Catherine Catherine's stun and silence are a minor problem. It's better to attack her when her shields are down.
5
Vox Vox's high damage output does not fix his glass cannon tendencies and he will go down quickly in a fight.
5
Celeste Her harassing skills and ultimate will mess with you.
5
Fortress Bleeding damage - do not underestimate it.
5
SAW Spun-up WP is more an issue for him...CP is an entirely different story.
6
Koshka A battle against another Koshka comes down to timing and builds.
7
Rona The berserker can spell trouble for you and out-sustain
7
Glaive Afterburn and Bloodsong on WP builds. 'Nuff said.
8
Krul Incredible sustain and high damage is the baseline for Krul. King of the jungle for good reason.
8
Taka High damage...unpredictability...viable on WP and CP...sounds a little like Krul, come to think of it.

Early Game Top

Although you start out with a substantial income, I would wait until you get some money through grinding, typically 550-600 gold. You'll want to get Ironguard Contract and Crystal Bit/ Hourglass with the surplus gold. Build up, continuing with buying Chronograph and Eclipse Prism. Sprint Boots are also handy in case of unwanted surprises or if you are attacked by hostile jungle heroes such as Glaive, Taka, or another Koshka

Mid-game Top

You'll want to get Aftershock and Travel Boots as upgrades, with Reflex Block, an Oakheart, a Crystal Bit/ Heavy Prism, and a Blazing Salvo. These will help as a baseline for the Endgame build. Feel free to upgrade early if you have enough gold, as in my experience, the sooner, the better. I've actually upgraded to Tornado Trigger during mid-game on several occasions and was able to gank with more efficiency. Keep this in mind.

Ganking Top

As you advance through early game, and especially mid-game, enemy heroes will push the lane once they have decently upgraded abilities. I'm sure 99% of readers know what ganking is as a concept, so, moving on...

I personally recommend reaching at least level 6 before putting real effort into ganking. If you have followed the guide correctly, you should have 3/5 Pouncy Fun, 2/5 Twirly Death, and 1/3 Yummy Catnip Frenzy, by level 6. Use Yummy Catnip Frenzy to jump out from your bush and stun enemies, followed by a Twirly Death to stack damage, and a Pouncy Fun to seal the fate of the enemy.

Only gank when tracking a lone target, or to provide sudden support in the event of a firefight between teams.

Endgame/Final Build Top

You should already have Aftershock, Travel Boots, Reflex Block, Oakheart, and Heavy Prism so far. You'll want to get Shatterglass, Crucible, and Dragonheart to top it off. Since you are maxed, go ahead and supplement your team by capturing Mines, helping capture the Kraken, and pushing the lane. Have fun with this tested and proven build!
