How it works

  1. You play around Q. You go Ability Haste and use Q as often as possible. You can also go in.

How to play

  1. You build Lethality and wait for a moment to strike enemy squishes.
  2. Snowball / Mark is a crucial cooldown for playing this build. Do not waste it or even wait to hit the enemy at point-blank range to ensure hit (so you follow them, if they Flash).
  3. If an enemy team is full of tanks or bruisers, rush Serylda's Grudge or even Lord Dominik's Regards early (sometimes even #2). Black Cleaver is also an alternative. The key is to adapt to the enemy team.

Tips and Tricks

General
  1. If you are not playing 'going-in' build like Tank or Bruiser, save Ixtal's Impact for escaping! You can play aggresive, then use it to run away to safety.
Riot
  1. Basic attacks apply Quaking. Stick to your target and re-apply it for maximum damage.
  2. Impale is extremely powerful when you use it to position an enemy so your allies can attack them.
