Notes

  1. Updated for 14.1 League of Legends Patch.

How to play

  1. You start with Guardian's Horn. Your #1 rush should be item that counters enemy team most (MR or Armor item). Get Jak'Sho as #2 item. Then adapt.
  2. Remember that you need to be close to enemies to proc Jak'Sho. Do not be afraid to go in and stay close to them in fights. This way you can proc Jak'Sho and get healed.
  3. You will be more tanky later on, so play more carefully in the early game.
  4. Triumph is better overall (heal + gold), but if you want to have easier time with your mana, go Presence of the Mind.
  5. Guardian's Horn is a surprisingly good item for its price. You can keep it for very long time (or even have it as 6th item).
  6. You need to adapt your items to the game. Enemy team heavy on AP? Buy MR. They heavy on AD? Buy Armor. You need some damage? Well buy that.
  7. Remember to consume your Grasp of the Undying procs!
  8. You can max Q or E.

Tips and Tricks

General
  1. You can use your Traps (W) for bush control.
  2. When there's Cannon minion or Siege minion, try focusing it, so an enemy team won't destroy all your traps.
  3. For that reason, you can put your traps more behind your position (i.e., if an enemy team has great engage on your team).
Riot
  1. Use brush to your advantage! Moving in and out of brush can heavily alter your effectiveness in battle.
  2. Start team fights by harassing with your Javelin Toss, and then switch to cougar form to chase down Hunted targets.
  3. Bushwhack traps deal damage based on their victim's current Health. Set them up in your team's backline before fights break out during sieges to help your team deal damage to the enemy frontline.
