How it works

  1. You play Bruiser stacking HP, auto attacking and rushing one specific item. You adapt to enemy team, building tanky items.
  2. You rush Titanic Hydra.
  3. Titanic Hydra can be your only damage item.
  4. Your auto attacks are quite powerful, thanks to Titanic Hydra and Grasp of the Undying. It's your main source of damage + your abilities.

How to play

  1. This build is focused on a single item - Titanic Hydra.
  2. How is this build different to other bruisers builds? The main difference is item rush order. You rush Titanic Hydra first, then adapt to the situation!
  3. Sundered Sky is very good damage item for this build. It scales off your HP (so Grasp, Overgrowth). It gives damage and pretty good sustain in fights. Remember to switch targets to maximize the effect!
  4. A very effective way of poking enemies is to use Titanic Hydra Active and hit minions in front of them (closer to them, better the effect).
  5. Enemy team heavy on AP? Buy MR. They heavy on AD? Buy Armor. You need some damage? Well buy that.
  6. Remember to consume your Grasp of the Undying procs!

Tips and Tricks
