Something About Samuel ! Top

[First I should tell you that I'm not so good at English. Sorry if somewhere I use wrong grammars!]

Samuel is a deadly sniper with AOF abilities. Mostly HE needs energy recharge and movement and YOU needs good aiming. It's very hard learning how to play with this hero but when you learn HAHA You are a most dangerous laner! He can escape while damaging the enemies. You can even 1v3 and kill all of them (Usually they chase you like stupids at same direction and you can easily use your B backward and kill them with your A XD) I would put a video if you want.

Finally he is a hard to learn sniper AOF killer hero :D

Abilities and Perk Top


This perk can give you a chance to survive the teamfights. It has bonus crystal damage, healing and energy recharge. It has 6s cooldown. But it is only 25% as effective as non-heroes. Which means you need to be careful to use it on heroes when it's ready to use (It is shown as a lighting icon on bottom side of screen).


Your main damage comes from this. Samuel fires two bolt that impact the first enemy hit. You can move (and you have more movement speed) while using this but the bolts won't change the location (watch the spotlight to understand the targeted location). This ability would empower while you are on your B area and it has more damage and AOF!


Samuel creates a large field of darkness that slowly drift forward. It will empower your Malice & Verdict, damaging enemies and heals you for each target that is in the area. It will disappear if you move more than 16 meters away from it.


After a short delay Samuel summons a phantasm that put nearby enemies to sleep. They can't act while they are sleep. Dealing direct damage to sleeping enemies will wake them up.

How to play! Top

You need to know how to use your abilities?! Read this part!

+ Since your main damage comes from Malice & Verdict you don't need Aftershock or alternative current.
+ Poke enemies with Corrupted Genius and Malice & Verdict
+ Malice & Verdict grants you movement speed so you can use it to escape and damaging enemies while they are chasing you and use your perk for a better chance of surviving the escape.
+ DO NOT USE YOUR B FOR DAMAGING ENEMIES! I saw people that unleash it just for damaging and even they don't stand inside :|.It is a ability just for creating opportunities to whether push the teamfight or escape! When you are pushing use it forward to empower your Malice & Verdict and have a burst AOE damage and when you are escaping use it backward again to empower your A and heal from enemies that are chasing you!
+ When you use Oblivion DO NOT damage all of enemy heroes that are sleep. You can keep the captain sleep then he can't support his carry and you and your team can easily kill the carry. Or it can use for escape; Make enemies that are chasing you or your ally sleep so they can't move and you can easily escape. Another important thing for this ability is aiming; Don't choose the location that they are; You should guess the location that they will go and locate your ability there.
+ Be careful of enemy's ganking. They would gank you from two side (If they are smart); If they did this you should do something to make them be in one side (Use your boots or ULT) and easily use your B and A backward for a good escape.

No more thing to say. Just don't give up when you lose with this hero; He is really hard to play first but you can learn soon. GOOD LUCK!
