4
Adagio Adagio is only dangerous when he approaches with a team-mate and rapidly heals them. His ultimate is also a deadly stun, so try to reflex block it or avoid it in general. When he's on the run pounce! Be careful if he has high attack speed, he will wipe you out.
5
Celeste Celeste poses no dangerous threat but watch out for her stars when hiding in the bushes. Also be careful of her stunning.
5
Fortress Fortress can reduce your health quite quickly, so watch out. Also be careful when on low health when he uses his ultimate. His hellhounds will chase you even through the turrets and will damage you a quite a bit.
5
Petal Petal poses a reasonable threat. Watch out for her little annoying 'munions' when running away.
5
Skaarf Skaarf does not pose a huge threat just keep an eye on your health as you will receive fire damage from his 'A' ability. Also run like hell when he is about to use his ultimate, it will drain your health.
5
Vox Vox is, like Skye, good at kiting. Ponce on him, twirly death and he's not hard. Just be careful if he has high attack speed.
5
Grumpjaw Be careful of Grumupjaws' ultimate, he eats you and can chuck you into the enemy team to destroy you. Also be careful of his 'A' ability, he is very quick with his dash forward and can get to you fast. You will only be in trouble though if Grumpjaw is going crystal with his 'A" ability. But if he is going weapon, his 'B', basic attacks and ultimate do significant damage.
6
Ardan One on one you will not stand a chance but with a group, one stun and he's gone. Ardan has very high health (as do all roamers/captains) so be very careful and try not to target him first in team fights.
6
Koshka Another Koshka is not a huge threat especially after reading my guide you will be able to destroy them.
6
Ozo If you play a good Ozo then watch out. He will reduce your health very quickly as he is very fast and you are squishy (Weak in health). His regeneration makes him hard to take on alone.
6
Rona Rona is hard to take on alone. Surprise attack and run (as you should do with all), and you should be fine. Her attack speed can be quite a problem, so be wary.
6
SAW SAW is an immediate threat, only if his basic attack has sped up to its full potential. It is very easy for him to miss his suppressing fire, so once he misses, pounce and attack. But watch out if he doesn't miss cause it means your screwed.
6
Alpha Be Careful of the self destructive warrior. She can be very annoying because you could reduce her health to nothing and and then she can come back to life, you will need your teammates to help kill Alphawhen she is rebooting her life. You will not be able to stop her from reviving by yourself. Don't take her on alone.
7
Blackfeather Once again, one on one Koshka doesn't stand a chance but in a group her Twirly Death becomes very useful. Be careful cause Blackfeather is the king of kiting. He will chase you down and finish you off.
7
Joule Joule is really difficult for our poor cat. (If they are good) when you try to run away her stunning is very annoying. Her ultimate is instant kill if they are going crystal power. So have your aegis ready.
7
Kestrel Kestrel is not a major threat by herself. But if you are on low health, don't bother surprise attacking and running away because her glimmershot will end you and active camo makes her terrifying when you trying to get away, especially if they are crystal, they can stay invisible forever.
7
Phinn Phinn is very hard to kill. Waring: don't bother trying to stun him, he's immune to stunning. He has very high health so team effort is needed.
7
Ringo Ringo is easy to kill but if he starts to slow you down with his bullets you are dead. Don't bother running just attack and hope for the best.
7
Samuel Samuel can be very worrisome with his 'B' ability he can control the map, where yo go. With his 'A' ability he can do significant damage so be wary an his ultimate can be the end of you so try at all cost no to get caught in his ultimate.
8
Reim Reim is also a great threat, his regeneration of health will make him impossible to kill by yourself. Definitely need some teamwork.
8
Skye Skye is the kiting queen. If she gets her distance on you, don't pursue her but your Pouncy Fun gets you to her pretty quick.
8
Taka Taka is very fast so running away is not advised especially when he disappears. Once he disappears run in a bush, but if you no longer appear to be invisible, twirly death and he will be revealed.
8
Lyra Her basic attacks alone have incredible range and if she stands still she fire a second attack that slows you down. Her A ability also has great range, watch out it will slowly drain your life and reveal you in a bush. Her B ability will 'snare' you not allowing you to escape with your A ability and she can teleport out of sticky situations with her ultimate. She is defininately the most powerful character so watch out.
8
Baron Crystal powered he has the most incredible range and is very hard to dodge his abilities. Weapon powered he does incredible damage so be careful of baron.
8
Idris Idris can bee a ranged hero when going crystal or a deadly warrior when weapon. His chakram does incredible damage as crystal and weapon. He can launch himself at you with his ultimate and cannot be hurt and then he leaps off and does damage. Idris can be taken on alone but be very careful.
9
Catherine One on one you will not stand a chance but with a group, one stun and she's gone. Catherine has very high health (as do all roamers/captains) so be very careful and try not to target her first in team fights. Try not to attack her when she has her shield up.
9
Glaive Glaive is very annoying to verse, so be careful. He will knock you into their turrets (if they are good). He will destroy your health dramatically or kill you very quickly.
9
Lance Lance's range is great but his attack is not very high unless he is going weapon powered. Watch out for his first ability and his large health. He will be very hard to kill alone late game.
9
Gwen Gwen is often described as a female Ringo. She does incredible damage and is the fastest hero in the game. Her disadvantage is she s very squishy early game so target her early game.
10
Krul Krul is a huge threat against Koshka (definitely not surprising). His regeneration makes him impossible alone but when he's low heath a pounce and twirly death should do the trick. Just make sure he isn't targeting you, make sure to stun him when you have you team at your side.
10
Flicker Flicker is koshkas worst nightmare. He can go invisible and annihilate your health with his 'B' ability. His 'A' ability will revel you in a bush and will do damage and if you stay there long enough it will root you. His ultimate will make the entire enemy team invisibly. So if you cannot see the enemy team for a while be wary.

Items Top

1) Halcyon Chargers will increase your speed (+0.5) and will get you out of tricky situations with a tap of a finger. +15% cooldown speed, +250 energy and +4 energy recharge. And +200 max health to top it off.

2) Aftershock this will increase your abilities cooldown speed (+25%), will increase your energy recharge (+2.5) and will give a bonus crystal power (+35). The more the better.

3) Aegis will give you shield (+125) (which will protect you against crystal powered heroes) and very little armor (+30) (which will protect you against weapon powered heroes) and +200 max health. also it will provide you with a shield that will block all stuns, roots, sleeping ( Samuel), etc. It can also be handy when a hero is going to use a high damaging ability.

4) Broken Myth this will give you +10% shield piece which will help in doing more damage when attacking a hero with an Aegis. It will also give you +70 crystal damage which is always helpful. It is the most expensive item in the game and the best/most useful.

5) Shatterglass will provide you with +150 crystal power for annihilating the enemy team! ;)

6) Crystal Infusion will provide you with even more crystal power/damage. These need to be bought when you have no other items to buy, because late game, Koshka's damage is not very high. So every bit of crystal damage/power counts.

Situational items Top

The Metal Jacket will help you against weapon powered heroes, so if there are no weapon powered heroes on the other team, buy another Shatterglass. This will increase your damage against the other team greatly. But I cannot stress enough, if there is a weapon powered hero, especially a ranged, buy a Metal Jacket. FYI:The Aegis protects you against crystal powered heroes.

Koshka's Moves/Perk Top

Bloodrush (Heroic Perk)


Koshka gains 2 move speed for 4s whenever she deals damage with her abilities.

Pouncy Fun (A)


Koshka dashes to the target enemy and deals damage.
This is incredibly important move of Koshka's as she is a hit and run character. It becomes particularity useful if you are hiding in the bushes and your laner/carries has reduced the enemy laner/carries to low health just pounce and finish them off but don't get too close to the turrets.It also is very useful early game as Koshka deals the most damage early game so if the enemy reduces your laner/carries' health and is chasing after them you can ponce and twirly death them and i should reduce their health greatly and should be on the run then pounce on them again and it should kill them, if not just run.

Twirly Death (B)


Koshka twirls, damaging all enemies around her. Her next 2 basic attacks within 5 seconds deal bonus crystal damage. Empowered attacks have lower cooldown (0.5s) than her normal basic attacks (0.8s)

This is probably her most effective move. She can deal a great amount of damage surrounding her. This is the move you use when you ponce on the enemy with poncy fun and then you you twirly death and run. Unless they are almost dead, keep attacking to finish them off.

Yummy Catnip Frenzy (Ultimate)


Koshka leaps at her target then launches into a flurry of slashes, stunning the target for the entire 2.2 second duration. Koshka will cancel her ult if the stun is Reflex Blocked.
Koshka's ultimate is very useful when you are in a group facing someone like Krul. You can stun him while your team attacks him. He will be dead in a few seconds and we all know that that's a huge relief.

Koshka In-Game Top

Early Game


Early game head with your roamer/captain into the jungle and let him take all the hits but you get the final hit on the minion. Start at the minion where the jungle shop is going to spawn. If you and your roamer/captain both agree you should consider invading the enemy's jungle. Koshka deals the a high amount of damage early game. The roamer/captain and her may be able to take on the enemy team early game if you get a strong roamer/captain and versing a weak early enemy jungle/captain. Steal their minions in the jungle and starve them of gold/XP. But be aware that the minion sentry/miner of the enemy team may spawn and it will target you dealing high damage.

Mid Game/End Game


You should always stick with your roamer/captain and let them check the bushes first. Otherwise if all three of the enemy team are in the bush (an ambush) they will target you and count yourself good as dead. I've probably said this a couple of times but Koshka is a hit and run character. She is way too squishy (low health/weak) to take on someone by herself late game. You need to let the roamer/captain take the hit and then you assist them once they've revealed the bush.
If your team has reduced an enemy character to low or half health and they run away, stun them and let your team finish them off. Do not do this if their team mates are coming to assist their dying comrade. They will target you and finish you off quickly.

Koshka- Pros & Cons Top

Pros

- Koshka has incredible damage early game
-She is very good at chasing/kiting
-She has perfect abilities for assassination
-Her ultimate is incredibly useful for locking down the strongest enemy hero or the annoying ones that can
disappear ( Taka, Flicker and Kestrel)
-She is very fast with her heroic perk giving her +0.5 movement speed for 5 seconds.

Cons
-She is very squishy early and late game, especially early game
-Once she is stunned, rooted, sleeping ( Samuel), etc. she is pretty much dead. She is almost always targeted first as she is so easy to kill.
-She doesn't do a large amount of damage late game.
-She is slow unless she attacks (her Heroic Perk)
