Miscellaneous Tips and Tricks

  1. Unlock 2nd Skill first
  2. Prioritize leveling skill 1 for faster cooldown
  3. Buy Hunter's Knife to farm faster especially if you intend to carry the team as a jungler.
  4. Your Second Skill will have a reduced cooldown of 4 seconds if the second phase is not used.
  5. The 1st phase of skill 2 already gives 3 stacks of his passive and the 2nd phase gives another 1 stack.
  6. Skill 2 is your main wave clear skill. It can clear the 1st wave in 8 seconds
  7. When attacking a jungle monster, you may use skill 1 then 1st phase of skill 2 to get max stacks of passive to boost your attack speed. Do basic attacks Then use the 2nd phase to refresh the passive timer. You can also perform it by using another way which includes reservation of skill 1 that can be used against enemies.

Tips to maximize passive

1. Use 2nd skill 1st phase

The passive will then give you 90% Atk Spd Boost.

2. Use Basic Attacks until passive is almost over or the timer for the second phase of your second skill whichever is shorter

3. Use 2nd Phase of your 2nd Skill

The passive will now be max stacked.

4. Use basic attacks again until passive is almost over.

5. Use 1st skill when needed to provide CC or reset the passive timer to maintain max stacks

6. Maintain max stacks until you see an X Mark underneath the enemy hero to secure a kill when you use your ultimate skill.

7. No need for Attack Speed Items because there is a limit of 250% for the Attack Speed Stat and that means you have a slot for Attack Power Items or defense and situational items.

Tip No.8

When pushing turrets, you may use skills on the enemy minions to trigger your passive to have a boosted attack speed which will help to destroy turrets faster. Do not use it on an enemy hero since it will make the tower target you.
