How it works

  1. You support your Team providing Healing, Shielding and various Buffs.
  2. You rush Moonstone Renewer.
  3. You can peel from your carries with Exhaust.

How to play

  1. You need to adapt in the game to your team and to the enemy team.
  2. Your team needs to engage? Get items like Shurelya's Battlesong or Trailblazer.
  3. Your team getting poked to death? Consider getting Redemption AND/OR Locket of the Iron Solari
  4. If you are just getting poked and cannot manage to stay alive - get Kaenic Rookern or Warmog's Armor (caution: needs enough HP!)
  5. You have tanks, bruisers and your team lack damage? As a last resort, you can buy few items to even help with that!
  6. Remember to counter an enemy team. For example, if they have lots of healing, get Oblivion Orb early.
  7. Depending on the enemy team, you can max Q first for more poke and damage.

Tips and Tricks

Riot
  1. Gathering Fire rewards aggressive play. Look to land abilities and basic attacks on your opponent to lower Mantra's cooldown and stay on the offensive.
  2. When using Focused Resolve, slow your opponents with Inner Flame or speed yourself up with Inspire if you're having trouble sticking to a target.
  3. Don't be too conservative with Mantra. Gathering Fire is strongest in teamfights, making it easy to recharge Mantra multiple times.
