How it works

  1. You rush Iceborn Gauntlet and optionally Imperial Mandate.
  2. You play as Tank, but with focus on kitting the enemy team and utility for your team.

How to play

  1. You rush Iceborn Gauntlet #1, then 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.
  2. You can rush Imperial Mandate #2 if you can afford it, this makes this build more fun. However, if you are behind, it is okay to just skip it.
  3. There's great synergy between Iceborn Gauntlet + Imperial Mandate + Font of Life. You create frozen pools that will persist for a few seconds, slowing enemies, applying Imperial Mandate debuff + Font of Life heal mark for your allies.
  4. For more utility oriented build, you can get Locket of the Iron Solari (sustain) or Shurelya's Battlesong (engages).
  5. Triumph is better overall (heal + gold), but if you want to have easier time with your mana, go Presence of the Mind.
  6. Remember to consume your Grasp of the Undying procs!
  7. Your play pattern is going to be Siphon Power (Q), auto attack and kite in between. Your Q works nicely with Shield Bash (damage buff), Grasp of the Undying and other items.
  8. Evolve Q first. W second. E third.

Tips and Tricks

General
  1. You can stop an enemy team from pushing your turrets with your W. Everyone died, and the enemy tries to push? Just put Gravity Field on minions' path.
Riot
  1. Death Ray is a powerful poke and a strong area of denial tool. Use it in combination with Gravity Field to control your enemy's position.
  2. Make sure you choose the right augment at the right time.
