Threat Hero Notes

  No Threat

Ardan Nothing to worry about. Remember to use ur pulse and keep basic attacking him and the damage of the resonance will bounce to the whole enemy team
2
Catherine Same as ardan but just be aware of her stunt and silence. U could silence her first before she silence u
2
Fortress Same as ardan
3
Adagio it's easy to play against an adagio just use your Sonic Zoom to dash his ult.
3
Skaarf Just don't get hit by her fireball
3
Petal Use ur pulse and attack the closest minion to her and the resonance damage will hit her
3
Rona Dash out of her ult and you will be safe
4
  No Threat
5
Celeste Watch for her core collapse and dodge with your sonic zoom if u dodged it, just stutter step her to death as punishment
5
Koshka Just watch her ult when she is lvl 6
5
Vox All about skill: kiting, and amount of cs in lane
6
  No Threat
7
Joule Just keep stutter stepping towards her and when she ults, use ur sonic zoom to dodge it. ( make sure u don't get stunned by her)
8
  No Threat
9
Glaive U have to be aware of his stun in lane or not it's GG. Put some traps in the bush if needed
9
Ringo Don't even try to 1v1 a ringo
9
SAW Same as ringo. If the saw is CP, then dodge the suppressing fire and kite it to death
10
Taka Be aware when it's level 6. Some taka players wouldn't go in to a fight immediately they would wait for the sniper to appear and then they jump in for the kill. So if there is an enemy taka, wait for it to appear in the bush first then attack. Try not to engage a fight. Ps. Put some scout traps for in case or let the roamer do the job

Build explanation Top

I bet some of you will think that the double Blazing Salvo is a bit weird for crystal since it doesn't make sense to build double Alternating Current. And now I am going to explain the purpose of it to u.

- 1st it's to build the speed of kiting and stutter stepping in early game
- 2nd it's going to make the attack speed faster and that means if you have Alternating Current, you could deal more of your crystal damage. (write a comment if it doesn't make sense to u)

And don't misunderstood. I am not building anything out of it. At one point of the game, when you have no spots left, you could sell the Blazing Salvo and get some stronger CP items such as Shatterglass, Broken Myth or some defensive items such as Crucible, Aegis or Metal Jacket if needed.

Gameplay Top

When the game just started get Swift Shooter to build ur attack speed. See whether do your teammates want to invade enemy jungle. (Be aware that vox is not typically strong in early game). Or just farm as much as you can in the lane and get at least 25-30 cs before 5 mins. Push the lane as fast as possible and join your teammates in the jungle for a team fight.
(practise kiting with the minions and get your rhythm right.)

In midgame, Alternating Current and the second Blazing Salvo should be done and make sure u r use to the auto-attacking rhythm since there is a slight change through the game.
When you are around lvl 7-8, finish Eve of Harvest and you could start building defensive items or continue to ur crystal damage.

Look at the threat-metre to get tips to counter enemy heroes.

And this is my final build:

Why crystal? Top

Due to the New update, the resonance bounce damage that Pulse created had been increased till 75% to 125% (from lvl 1-5) and by building crystal, you could apply more damage on your basic attack and your resonance damage.

In my opinion, WP vox wouldn't be too effective.
One of the reason is that the WP vox kind of rely on the Sonic Zoom.
But now it only deals damage to enemies which has resonance on it. That means you need to use ur Pulse before you use your Sonic Zoom which I think it's too slow if you like to poke the enemy in lane (not criticising WP just my own opinion).

As you know, WP vox would deal more damage to a single enemy than a CP vox, and a CP vox would deal more damage to the whole enemy team.
But it doesn't mean that a vox couldn't kill anyone 1v1. To increase the damage towards a single enemy, you need Alternating Current as you can see I kind of rush it on top. That is for building attack speed, and to make sure the basic attack would deal more damage than usual. To make it stronger, you could get a strong crystal item such as Shatterglass and Broken Myth.
