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. Be careful to not waste Aftershock. Try timing it and keeping it for going in.

Tips and Tricks

General
  1. Always keep auto attacking - this gives you great sustain, especially early on.
  2. Always count your Q attacks. You can attack minions twice, then E (combined with Flash) and knock unsuspecting enemies up!
  3. Combo #1: You can cast W and Flash. It works forward/backward and sideways. This lets you get some cool kills.
  4. Combo #2: You can cast W, Flash then use E to reach. That's a super cool combo that lets you catch people off guard and engage from miles away.
  5. Combo #3: You can cast R, then Flash. This way you do some surprise damage, or even throw enemies into your team if used properly (keep track of who is Challenged!)
Riot
  1. Xin Zhao is a great initiator to combat. Lead the front to start a fight and use your ultimate to do the most damage possible.
  2. Try to position yourself so your ultimate's knockback is most effective.
