Threat Hero Notes

Grumpjaw I can't really give you a threat rate for Grumpjaw as I haven't properly been up against one.
1
Celeste Psshh,Celeste?What is she gonna do?her only good source of damage is her Ult,which can be avoided if you stun her just in time.
1
Kestrel Man she's way to weak to take you on.Just avoid her mist and prevent her from Going into Stealth,and you'll be fine.
1
SAW Ha ha ha ha ha,SAW.Just jump on him and Atlas him,he'll die faster than you can say,"Caricature".
1
Skaarf Skaarf,really?Skaarf's like SAW,but with a little more defense.So really don't worry about him.
2
Gwen Unlike Celeste,Gwen can pack a punch,BUT there still not much to worry about her as she's too fragile to take you on,and if running,makes sure to activate your boots.
3
Baron I wouldn't really be worried about him.Barom is mostly reliant on his A,and doesn't have much attack speed himself,so he shouldn't be problem,unless he Overdrived his B,which can be a problem.If you are on a situation like that,I recommend waiting for him to use his B,and then stun him.
3
Vox Vox is really fragile and easy to take on,but he has some good movement,and a dash that can get around you.
4
Adagio There isn't much to worry about him if Adagio is going Lane,but if Roam,you may want to pick up some Attack speed.
4
Samuel Samuel can be pretty strong if he can keep his distance away from you,but other than that,He's pretty fragile.
5
Catherine I wouldn't be as worried,just make sure to take her on while her B is not active,to maximize your damage.And make sure to stay away from her if she silenced you.
5
Ozo Eh I wouldn't worry as much,but CP Ozo's damage is pretty high,and he can stun you,so you really would what to pick up an Aegis.
5
Phinn Well Phinn cans stun,give his allies Fortified health,and can pull you into danger.Make sure to prioritize taking him out first,this way his team will be left weak.
6
Ardan You may want to be careful around him,as he can use his Gauntlet and prevent you form any sort of escape.Make sure to pick up an Aegis in case for situtions like these,unless you think you can get away with your A.
6
Lance Lance is a formidable opponent.He can stun and root you,which can be a pain.Make sure to buy some attack speed so that you can increase your damage output.
6
Skye Ok Skye is pretty strong,especially with her B,which she can use to avoid your abilities,and pick you off from a distance,while being able to stun you.
7
Fortress Fortress can be pretty annoying as he has strong burst damage.You problably wouldn't want to engage him alone.
7
Joule There can only be one... Depending on the Build,your gonna want to play a bit more careful.If CP,it's best you wait to stun her when she uses her ult.If WP,they will most likely buy attack speed,so buy an Atlas and buy a breaking point as Joule is fairly tanky.
7
Krul Well Krul can really depend,if you stun and atlas,he wouldn't be hard to take on.Always make sure to have a teammate around before you engage on him.
7
Lyra All you need to do is stay out of her B range,especially if your low,your only ways of espcape will disappear,like your health.
8
Alpha Alpha is a very dangerous hero who can chase you down easily.I recommend avoiding her,and wait until your allies are around before you engage her.AVOID HER IF SHE IS USING HER ULT.
8
Flicker Ok,Flicker can be a pain,especially if they're experienced.You really should carry some flares early game and play it safe against him.If possible you may want to buy so attack speed to help you out.
8
Reim If Reim roots you,you're in a world of pain.Reim is insanely strong in 1v1's so I would problably stay away from him,and make sure he doesn't attack you,which prevents him from being able to root you.
8
Ringo Ringo is a really strong opponent.If you can't land a stun on him,your pretty much screwed.
8
Taka Taka is a pretty annoying target.His Ult can take away a good bit of your health,and keep up the mortal wound if he can keep basic attacking you.So yeah,he is safe to take on,but he's really strong and can kill you off if you can't land your strikes.
9
Koshka Ok she is pretty annoying to deal with,especially that she can stun,rendering you weak if you don't block it.You problably would want to stay away from her,especially early game as well.
9
Rona Well,Rona.She is a pretty devastating opponent,especially her Ult.Although not the hardest to take on,She is still a pretty scary opponent.
10
Blackfeather Blackfeather has too good of moment for you to engage properly,so I highly recommend avoiding him,and picking up an Atlas to slow his attack speed.
10
Glaive OK,NOW YOU'RE IN SOME TROUBLE.Glaive is a machine(Cat) of destruction,if he stuns you,you're good as dead,unless your A is ready and have enough to time for you to get away.
10
Idris Idris is a pretty strong there at against you.He can dodge all your abilities,so your pretty hopeless against him.
10
Petal Oh God Petal.Most Vainglory players worst enemy,stay away from her.Especially don't take her on if you don't have enough energy for you to use your A,it's your best chance of escape.

Threat Hero Notes
1
  No Threat
2
SAW Jump on him while he's using his B,have a Atlas,and hit him with your Ult,you'll be more than fine.
3
Celeste Pretty weak overall,but can inflict damage if you get stunned by B.(good info from a user,pretty sure you know who you are :-) )
4
Gwen There isn't much to Gwen when going Joule.Just make sure to keep up with her if she uses her B after you stun her.
5
Catherine Block the stun,don't attack when her B is active,and get away if hit by Silence,and you'll be fine,most likely.
5
Joule Really who ever is better.Make sure to have your reflex block ready when you are using your ult and they use their A.
5
Koshka Not very good late game,but can annoying with her speed boosts from her B.
5
Ozo His jumps are annoying,but he doesn't really deal much damage,so,there's little to worry,but he does have some tankiness as players tend to go double def 9 out of 10 times,even if they don't need to defense items.
5
Samuel If they have a frostburn as well,you're probably gonna struggle keeping up.Make sure to land your A,and you'll most likely be fine.
5
Skye Ehh,both pats for her are annoying.She will sustain a lot of damage on you,and do whatever it takes to keep you away,so watch out.
6
Ardan Most supports (and Ardan is most likely going to go support in a match) are not much difficult to take on,if you build wisely.Just be careful if he's using his Ult.
6
Baron I never found Baron to be a big threat,just really annoying to take on.He's somewhat durable when building defense,so I would go with the "Sustain" Build if I were you.WP is pretty strong (and that jump is really annoying) but CP isn't much to worry about.
6
Blackfeather CP is just a murder bot,WP is...not as annoying.Take advantage of his low defense and have your ready when you take on him.
6
Flicker His Perk is really annoying as he can use it as a massive counter against you,his abilities can really slow you down,and can inflict damage,so be careful when you're in a match against him.
6
Fortress Crazy burst from his abilities,and is tanky,especially if support.Use your abilities wisely,and know when its safe to take on
6
Kestrel She can surprise you with a lot of burst damage,especially if CP.But,she is overall too fragile and easy to kill,so there's not much trouble when it comes to her.
6
Rona She is tanky,but she has to stay near you to be able to use her abilities better,so make good use of your Abilities!
6
Taka Eh,spot him out with all of your abilities.Joule is tanky enough to resist his attacks,so just easily kill really.
7
Adagio Not much of a danger if going any position,but any offense positions may be challenging (most likely based on skill)but as long as you can stun him,you're fine.
7
Idris Idris can dodge your abilities with ease,and can surprise you with crazy burst.Be careful when engaging,but if you can sustain damage,you won't be in much trouble.
7
Lyra Just watch out for her B,or else you're really screwed.
7
Skaarf Skaarf is a surprisingly good counter to most junglers,although fragile,he can pack a large punch.Like mentioned a million times before,USE YOUR ABILITIES WISELY.
7
Vox A good Vox can dodge your Abilities easily,and can DEAL CRAZY DAMAGE.Ardan would be really helpful with his Ult in this scenario.
8
Grumpjaw OK,Grumjaw can be a pain.His Ult is devastating,and must be dodged/blocked at all costs.He already is tanky himself,and can pack a punch.I recommend that you do not take on him alone and have an ally near to help you
8
Krul I think everyonebody know what they shouldn't do (in talking about not 1v1'ing him)You may need a Atlas,unless you're support has one,or if they do,but need longer time of slow Attack speed for him.
8
Lance His Impales and B gets really annoying.WP Jungle Lance can be frustrating with a lot of crazy burst,plus his B can reduce a lot of damage form your Ult.(if they really know how to play Lance well)
8
Phinn Not a danger,just really tanky.A BM pretty much becomes a must if you're up against a Phinn.
8
Ringo He can strife around you,and deal lots of damage at the same,yeah,a pretty scary combo.
9
Alpha Alpha is quite dangerous,and with her sustainability,that makes CP joule easy prey.Use your A wisely,especially when it comes to escaping,its your best chance.DODGE HER ULT IF ALPHA IS GOING CP,.
9
Petal Oh geez,Petal.If it's a bad petal,you have a possible adavantage.If they're good,they're gonna dodge your Ult and A,chase you 'till you're dead,and are gonna jump away from your Abilities,again.
9
Reim Similar to Krul,don't even try 1v1'ing him.Just keep your distance,use your Forstburn to your advantage,and you'll have a little bit more hope.(also,what he out for his B,that root will be your death.)
10
Glaive Glaive will just murder you.Period.DO NOT TAKE HIM ON ALONE.

New Update Top

With the new update,there have been many changes in WP builds.Due to the reduced Crit strike chance and reduced crit damage of the TM,players have switched to TT in their builds for the better,increased CRIT chance and damage.And with that,many builds needed updating,including this one.(CP build will be out by April 24,also,look out for a possibility of a support build ;-) )

THINGS TO NOTE Top

This build is very strong but it leaves you to rely on your B,so you may want to be careful,but your Basic attack do perform just as well.Its best you buy Journey boots so you can pick up some good speed,but buying Halycon Chargers are completely fine if you want to Reduce to the timer for your B.

By the way,this is my first guide so THERE ARE SOME MISTAKES.I will gladly appreciate criticism and will use that to improve any Future guides I make.

FIRST EARLY MINS Top

Joule is a top pick for me as she is a warrior with immense damage whether your going WP or CP.Early game is when you want to play it safe,especially against heroes that perform well early game(most assassins),so you really would want to stay in your side of the jungle and farm as fast as possible.Picking up a weapon blade is a must when you first start,but feel free to buy defense and buy those extra halcyon potions for safety,or buy Boots to escape trouble!

5 MIN MARK Top

At this point if you farmed well,you should be Sitting on 2k-2.5k gold.Start building into a sorrowblade,but do not forget to buy defense item(s)you may buy one,or both if needed)),Make sure not to forget boots.You should now be in a point where you can engage enemies with aid of your Roam(especially if they're fragile heroes).

10 MIN MARK Top

You now should be level 9-11,Having your B overdrived,and have as much points put in A.You should try to avoid using your Ult as it doesn't provide much damage,but it is a great way to secure kills.Having your Sorrowblsde finished,you should now start building into your first Tyrants monocle.I wouldn't be worried in upgrading your Defense or boots,but if needed,go ahead.

15 MIN MARK Top

You should now be level 12 with your A and B overdrived.And for items,you should have your 1st Tyrants monocle finished and building Into your second one.You would most likely need to upgrade your defense.It is important you stick with your Teammates to gank down opponents.

20 MIN MARK Top

You should now have your offensive items finished,and have defense and boots upgraded to tier 2,but if you have extra gold,you may upgrade your defense to max.You should stay grouped with your whole team at this point to gank opponents,or engage in team fights.

LATE GAME Top

You should now have all your items finished,and buy infuse whenever available.Focus on taking out the whole enemy team first before taking on Kraken,and if there is heroes with burst or constant damage outputs and/or stealth,have your Roam invest in scout traps and flares,and take out that hero before continuing to take on Kraken.

TEAM COMP Top

Having a team that can keep enemies near you and can deal lots of damage is very important

LANE:Ringo,SAW,Skye,and Vox are great picks for their strong damage output,but are fairly fragile teammates,meaning they can die fast in team fights.Gwen is also a well pick,but she may be too reliant on her Boomstick to be able to inflict damage,making it harder to take out opponents.

ROAM:Ardan,Cath,and Lance are great picks.Ardan can give you a boost and trap enemies in a spot,giving you opportunities to (thunder) strike them down with your B.Cath can stun and silence enemies,reducing their likelihood of inflicting significant damage,and help you get away if you are too low on health.Lance is a great pick as he can root and stun enemies,leaving you to use your A,and as mentioned above,(thunder)strike them down with B.Lyra is a great pick as well as she can snare enemies,preventing in them from escaping(especially heroes like Ozo)and leaving you to stun and shock 'em to death.

CP JOULE Top

I will not do a full detailed description like I did for WP as most players know what to do,and what not to.Like I said in the threat-o-meter a few times,you just need to time your Abilities wisely and you won't struggle.Cp is most definitely harder to play compared to WP,as your 10x more reliant on your Abilites,and requires really good placement in team fights.Remeber,CP Joule requires precise teamwork to be successful.

Team comp:Support:Ardan,Lyra,and Lance are top picks as they can keep enemies in one place.

Lane:I would say that most landers are great picks as they can all sustain damage on your opponents as you stun them.
