Intro Top

Reim is a late game hero just like krul. Just in a CP style.

Pro:
Done good damage
Fortified health with A and basic attacks can act as a lifesteal
High sustainability



Cons:
Moving slow (not to said slow movement but lack of chasing abilities or moving skill)

Abilities Top



This hero having a lifeteal barrier and chill effect(slow) so I m not advise using frostburn and eve of harvest.

Just focus on damage and short skill CD.


Frostguard
Reim's basic attacks deal 20-54 (+125% crystal power) bonus crystal damage over 2 seconds and grant 50% of the damage dealt with this effect as fortified health (reduced against non-heroes).

Reim's attacks and abilities also chill opponents. Basic attacks against targets that are already chilled apply a 60% slow that decays over 0.6 seconds.


(This perk add a temporary barrier similar with lifesteal and frostburn with 2nd basic attack.)



Winter spire

Reim summons a spire of ice at a nearby location, dealing crystal damage to surrounding enemies. After a short delay, the spire shatters, dealing heavy crystal damage. 35% of the damage dealt with this ability is gained as fortified health. Damage dealt and fortified health gained is reduced against non-heroes.

This ability deals 25% increased damage to chilled targets.


(After having clockwork you just spam your enemies with this abilities. And if your teamates are all ready to gank, you can just click boot then B then A again to start gank. Use C after B if all enemies are gathering and already engaged with your ally.)

Chill Winds

Reim deals a burst of crystal damage to all surrounding enemies (25% damage to minions).

This ability roots enemies who are chilled, temporarily preventing them from moving. A rooted enemy can still attack.



Valkyrie

Reim summons an ancient valkyrie, devastating enemies at the target location. All enemies are slowed, while enemies closer to the center are stunned and take increased damage.

Playstyle Top

Okay first thing to say is try not to be alone. Don't try to invade enemy jungle in the early game or trying to chase enemy in the early game.(if your teamates try to do that, stop them if they can't secure a kill)

Cause you are moving slow and easily ganked by enemies if you are at enemy jungle in the early game.(Unless you got Ardan at your side but not too advisable)

Reim is a mage even is a tanky mage but dun be too aggressive in the early game and mid game. You just clearing up your jungle and assist your laner if being ganked by enemies or harass enemy laner. Thats your job in the early and mid game.


How to play Reim or how to start a fight?

Just hide in bush, A then boots (rush to enemy), B then A again or you can just C if your enemy already engaging with your ally (to make sure not so easy to escape from your ulti as it AOE is not very large.)


Last thing is not to use B until you have purchase energy battery on your second purchase as it will take lots of your mana in the early game.

As for the last 2 items Top


Use this if enemy high on cp



Use this if enemy mix of wp and cp but without aftershock


Use this if enemy have breaking points and with high attack speed.


If enemy focus on WP

Top

The fortified health is very useful in the late game when your damage is high. You are hard to kill by that time.

This is my first MOBA and also first guide.

Hope everyone can find this guide helpful and gain victory!!!
