Hey guys its me again, this time we go in depth with all heroes. Thanks to Thorin, PartyGod, FlyingFox and Jayburna for the extra tips!

Adagio Top

  • Adagio's first skill heals and slows enemies when self casted.
  • Adagio's second skill amplifies damage.
  • Make sure that the enemies are on fire when casting your ultimate, it will stun them.
  • Use Reflex Block before casting your ultimate to avoid cancellation.
  • If you are going for damage, go with Alternating Current for more DPS.
  • Adagio is one of the toughest late game hero.
  • Use your ultimate wisely it's a wide AOE, use boots to rush in between enemies to hit them all.
  • Use first and second skill as a combo, you deal more damage to enemies on fire.
  • Adagio is one of the most versatile hero in game.
  • Kite.
  • If you are support build, cast your second skill on a teammate with the highest DPS. (e.g. SAW, Glaive, Ringo)
  • Please heal teammates.
  • Buff yourself or teammates before initiating ganks.

Catherine Top

  • Catherine's first skill gives a speed boost and powerful basic attack equipped with stun.
  • Catherine's second skill deflects damage.
  • Catherine's third skill is directional AOE and silences enemies, meaning they won't be able to cast skills momentarily.
  • You gain armor when stunning or silencing enemies.
  • Always use third skill for initiating team-fights.
  • If ganking 1 enemy use this attack pattern: Hide in the bush>Walk in with basic attack>Pull out shield>Basic Attack>Enemy runs away or casts a skill>Rush with stun. This is much more effective than the usual stun initiating.
  • Ironguard Contract is the best starter item for Catherine.
  • Face-checking miners and jungle shop for mines is your responsibility.
  • Set traps, for vision and plant two overlaying mines in a bush then stun whoever steps in.
  • Use first skill for canceling stacks and ultimates that require long cast time. (e.g. Adagio, Saw, Ringo)
  • Pull up shield before entering suspicious bushes.
  • Don't use your ultimate as a finisher and when enemies are in max range. Losing silence is critical for your team's survivability.
  • Save up mana to be useful in team-fights
  • Get a Clockwork or Aftershock for faster cooldown.
  • Krul is still able to land stacks even with the bubble shield on.
  • Catherine's final point in her stun, increases her stun duration to 1.75 seconds from 1.2 seconds

Glaive Top

  • Try to fire Afterburn in different angles, for a head spinning kill.
  • When escaping at the center jungle/goldmine/kraken area, hit the Kraken at the last second, you might get hit once, but when you get out of range the enemy will take the agro Kraken and for sure will get hit twice, when they try to escape knock em' back.
  • Glaive is the almost perfect lure in game, since you can just Afterburn back to a safer position, but pro players will notice that, so sometimes they won't bother.
  • Always stack more than 15 Bloodsongs, you may have the lowest ultimate cooldown, but you still have to stack to be effective.
  • Do not Afterburn enemies in max range! You need to have that little gap to be sure to knock enemies back rather in front.
  • Always face-check bushes, jungle shop, crystal and goldmines for scout traps.
  • Kite. Yes, kite. Kite jungle creeps, Glaive's axe range enable you to walk a little distance while still hitting your target. Use this trick for a quick and efficient jungling experience.
  • Do not hover in the enemy's attack range, especially if they are ranged heroes, e.g. Petal. If you are in their range, make sure you can exchange blows as well. Use Afterburn to escape huge bursts e.g. Spontaneous Combustion.
  • Versus Catherine's ultimate, Afterburn sideways and through her rather than backwards, you might still get clipped while at mid-dash.
  • Use Afterburn to catch Krul's Hellrazor and to save teammates.
  • Use Petal's Bramblethorn seeds for your advantage and extra stacks. Be careful pro Petal users use the seeds for extra mini-map vision.
  • Immediately retreat if you get stacked by Krul, Bloodsong is no match for Spectral Smite.
  • If you are willing to fight Krul 1vs1, when he gets stacked halfway dash through him with Afterburn, immediately activate second skill then knock him away. The stun duration and distance is enough to reset the stacks, when he gets near trigger Bloodsong and Afterburn again.

Joule Top

  • Joule's first skill can jump over walls, stun and knock back.
  • Joule's second skill is highly spammable, scales with both weapon and crystal damage and needs to be stacked to deal additinal damage.
  • Joule's ultimate is the most damaging skill in game, it pushes you back and can even snipe enemies from a distance.
  • One of the highest damage dealers.
  • You take less basic attack damage from fronts and sides
  • Joule's second skill. It has a higher weapon scaling compared to crystal and thus it can be beneficial to build her as a hybrid.
  • One of the most versatile heroes in game.
  • Use yourself as bait, jump over a wall, and blast enemies.
  • Your ultimate cannot be cancelled, but it's still avoidable. Glaive can still knock you away though.
  • Do not blast a Catherine with her shield bubble on, it can do you more harm than good.
  • Get your second skill to max stack it will crit weapon damage.
  • Joule can either effectively lane or jungle.
  • If possible don't use you ultimate when you're are just going to kill one enemy.
  • Use your first skill to scatter enemies camping in bushes.
  • Don't miss your second skill, it will remove your stacks.
  • Use your first skill to escape ganks.

  • Initiating team-attack pattern: YCF>Twirly Death>Run Away>Pouncy Fun>Run Away>Repeat

  • Krul's first skill's damage scales higher with weapon but offers no benefit to his health barrier.
  • Krul's gameplay isn't going head on and just rely on lifestealing, it's hovering and going in and out and maintaining the stacks.
  • The longer the sword travels the longer the stun duration.
  • Throw the sword in awkward directions but be sure to make it land in the return flight.
  • Use the stun to stop enemies chasing dying teammates.
  • Krul is the only hero so far that can solo the Kraken with one item.
