Threat Hero Notes
1
Kestrel She's trash all around. This is a joke. Don't get mad. I just dun like her
2
  No Threat
3
Adagio The slow can be annoying but you're already pretty slow with no chasing ability so it doesn't really do much. Just watch out for the stun
4
SAW He can't run from you without your A. Mages do well against him cause he is easy to hit. SOOO SLOWWW XD
5
Krul Rooting him just makes him mad since he needs to stick to opponents. Only reason he is so high up is cause he is Krul. DON'T 1v1 HIM IDIOT
6
  No Threat
7
Catherine Nothing much. Just the fact that silence will irritate you since you rely on damage from your abilities.
8
Skaarf He WILL kite you. Until you get close.
9
  No Threat
10
Blackfeather His execute ignores your defense. Watch out 0_0
10
Petal Satan
10
Skye Her high mobility can let her dodge most of your skill shots while also keeping distance to do damage to you.
10
Vox High mobility and good escape just screws him :/ also silence is annoying
10
Ringo Did I mention high mobility screws him?
10
Reim This is to tell you I'm lazy to do the rest :D may the best reim win

Introduction Top

So this is my first guide. Don't go too rough on me XD. I'm very open to constructive criticism but try to be too mean. Also I'm bad at intros. And technology. So I'll make up for lack of icons. WITH MY WORDS 0_0

Also, he's a jungle. In case you didn't know.

Build explanations Top

1. Eve of harvest:
You are tanky. With life steal. And lots of damage. Do I need to explain myself here XD
2. Frostburn:
Helps catch up to your opponents since you're bad at chasing
3. Broken Myth:
You are tanky. Getting broken myth stacks will be easy as FU
4. Shatterglass:
Cause I can't think of anything else. So more damage is always fun.
4 (replacement): Clockwork
Cause I can't think of anything...if you like spamming abilities and smashing your face on your device then I guess this is for you...?
4 (replacement): Defense
Broken myth is all you need
4 (replacement): Warhorn
Helps stick to opponents
5. Boots:
Everyone needs this. Even if you're taka. Shut up he needs boots.
6. Defense:
Just cause your tanky doesn't mean you don't need this. They are helpful to make you even tankier. More sustain is great. Also crucible works cause your support is a blubbering idiot

Pros and cons Top

Pros:
High sustain
High damage
He looks and is the gandolf of your team

Cons:
He can't chase
He can't run

Jungle phase Top

If I need to teach you how to play jungle...go learn the basics first and come back. Ok FINE. Last hit stuff. Start from the top. I guess that's about it. Buy some scouts if your support is dumb. Gank sometimes. You wanna know how to gank? Wow...really...ok start with your A. Boot and B. There. Happy? What's that? You wanna invade? Don't.

What I think of REIN TIME (reference ;D) Top

He is so good. Like I normally don't call new heroes OP but this one...oh boy. So what I think of him is that he is tanky. And he does sooo much damage. Enemy tries to all in you and you have your laner doing whatever they want. But the focus laner and they have to deal with your damage too XD.
His passive is great for long sustain fights since you do godly burst damage (why is your A a 1sec cooldown :/)with eve of harvest lifesteal together with tankiness keeping you alive. You're like a ranged Krul, just not nearly as good in 1v1 (let's be honest, nothing can 1v1 Krul)

Abilities Top

I can't put them in go read them yourselves you blubbering idiot :p

So how do I play gandolf ? Top

Or is it gandAlf... Whatever. Basically what you want to do is keep your laner alive. Press all the buttons and that's it. Ok fine. For team comps you'll want a support who can let you stick to opponents and a laner with good chasing and escaping ability (we'll go through this later). You'll want to make use of your root for 2 occasions:
1. To set up your ult
2. To keep your laner alive
3. Spam it since you have clockwork
4. You're using the face smash strategy
5. I'm not good at Maths.
What I mean by keeping your laner alive is most of the time they'll target you later since the laner is the squishiest. Now this is where the YOU SHALL NOT PASS comes in. You set up the chill and ask your laner to be careful. Then root them when they try to chase. Lastly, Ult and clean up with your burst. Your support should be there to help you set up this combo and body block and CC that might stop you. Your laner is the bait. And if there are still some survivors, let your laner clean up. You are the frontline of defense along with your support. AND THEY SHALL NOT PASS. Well...at least for your laner only.

The lane's role Top

Now this guy is just the baiter most of the time. He really won't need to do much. Just clean up and chase fleeing enemies. Now let's say you somehow MAGICALLY screw up (if that's the case I applaud you). You need to rely on this laner to escape and avoid an ace. Everything is up to him should the strategy fail.

Support's role Top

This guy needs to help you set up your combos and keep you alive from any CC. Also needs to help make the enemies stick together and fight. Bring THEM to YOU. Since you have no chase you'll need to dish out the damage. Your laner can't kill everything that easily.

Great teammates (Lane edition) Top

So what we need is a lane with good chase. And who might those be? Well BLACFEATHER and SKYE are my favorite. These guys can really help clean up the mess when they are low in health after your burst damage. Also they have great escape. Blackfeather is great at chasing and escaping with ultimate. Skye isn't so much about escape but she can potentially 1v3 since their health will be low after reim is done. And Skye is generally all around pretty fun to play so good for you booboo.

Great teammates (support edition) Top

DO NOT OLAY CATHERINE WITH HIM. Don't let the spotlight fool you. Of course in a team with communication then sure. But in soloq, Catherine has only her stun to help you (her ult does NOT help that much). She's meant to chase down fleeing enemies. Unfortunately, reim is simply too slow and unreliable to catch up. It's like playing a forretress and Phinn comp. Don't. But if you want to do that, I'm not stopping you. What I like tho...is a nice nice Phinn. He is great with reim. They both can't chase but you don't need to. Let your laner do it. But if you wanna go with Phinn...GET WARHORN. Just in case you know...also ardan is nice but only with his ult. His A is nice but you don't really need it. You already have your bait (the poor poor laner). His A can be used to save the laner I guess. And can be nice for chasing. But his ult synergies very well with Reim's ult cause it makes it a lot easier to hit. Lastly, adagio is nice as the burst damage is great with his ult. Your ult and his ult combined will be one of the biggest burst damage you'll ever see. His B is good for helping laner kill and his A is good for slowing enemies and keeping reim alive.

Summary of team comps Top

Good laners for him:
Blackfeather, kestrel (I still hate you), taka (trust me it's fun), vox, Skye
Bad laners for him:
Saw (so slow), Celeste, Skaarf(situational).

Good supports for him:
Phinn, Ardan, Adagio
Bad supports for him:
Catherine (up to you man), fortress, Glaive, Petal (Satan is not a support), Joule, blackfeather
