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. Triumph is better overall (heal + gold), but if you want to have easier time with your mana, go Presence of the Mind.
  3. 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).
  4. 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.
  5. Remember to consume your Grasp of the Undying procs!

Tips and Tricks

General
  1. You can cancel your Abyssal Dive (W) with Flash in case of emergency.
  2. If you know you will get alive, don't use Thick Skin (E). Let it heal you instead.
  3. Want to hit Abyssal Dive (W)? Face the other direction to mislead the enemy.
  4. Hit Tongue Lash (Q) first, then use Abyssal Dive right away for certain hit.
  5. Just ate enemy player? Don't spit him out immediately. Wait for your cooldown, your allies and their cooldowns as well. Ping them if needed.
Riot
  1. Your most important function as a support is to keep fragile allies safe. Keep Devour's range and cooldown in mind and position accordingly!
  2. Consider carefully when to use Thick Skin's active. Sometimes shielding early to avoid further damage is good, but sometimes the healing is more beneficial.
