Erlang Shen Lore

Many are the legendary tales of Erlang Shen.

Hearing the riverlands surrounding his home were consumed by floods, he went to engineer new damns and canals. Yet the true source of the disaster proved to be an evil dragon. With seven companions, Erlang Shen ambushed the beast. Cowardly and quick the dragon slithered into the rapid river waters, but Erlang Shen captured it with a great chain and bound it beneath a shrine. Thus the floods subsided.

When Sun Wukong's troublesome antics drew the ire of the Jade Emperor, Erlang Shen faced the Monkey King on the battlefield. For every form Sun Wukong took, Erlang Shen transformed as well. Across sea and sky and land they battled. Thus was Sun Wukong sent fleeing for his life.

When the people were plagued by demons and monsters, Erlang Shen slaughtered them to keep his countrymen safe. Three-bladed spear in hand and hunting dog at his side, no evil could threaten the innocent of the Empire. Thus, Erlang came to be loved and worshipped.

A Goddess mother and a mere mortal father, he is of two worlds. He is both sage and soldier, humble yet regal, his veins filled with the blood of men and the divine blood of his uncle, the Jade Emperor. Having risen above his forbidden origins, Erlang Shen has proven himself among the greatest of heroes in the Jade Empire. Perhaps that is why he now takes the field. No demon, nor dragon, nor even the Monkey King himself has stood against him and won. To save the people, to save the world, Erlang Shen will fight, and another legend will be born!

Why is everyone ranking this God top tier? He's not good at all

DucksRock (41) | August 15, 2016 11:33am
- counter to the mobility creep
- 100-0 heal with a bigger Athena taunt coupled with his knockup (which is the best cc in the game) and a root with a cripple makes his cc levels amazing and his teamfighting is absolutely ridiculous
- still mobile
- has too much sustain with Death's Toll and his dog.
- damage to rival an assasin
- He has both an early game with Death's Toll and Pin and a monstrous late with the cc and the fatalis effect + Butcher Blades
- aoe clear

it's logic. you may see him doing bad, but he's actually pretty good if utilized by a proper team. the reasons Erlang Shen didn't work at Lan is because of the Xing Tian counterpick which can be easily avoided, and the fact Paradigm was doing poorly.

I really don't think this God is really all that good anymore to be honest. Just hyped

GameGeekFan (50) | August 11, 2016 1:14pm
He has a VERY good counter to mobility in general, and a good boxer with power rivaling an assassin. His root also has a cripple, and a knockup to a cripple can equal a very dead jungler.

From my experiences lately. I haven't been seeing him do well really. Unless the other teams compositions are just bad and he just runs through people. I'm not really seeing it Man. Not even ranked.
And his voice pack doesn't seem to match him either :/

CakeSlapping (29) | July 14, 2016 10:07am
So. What do people think of him as a solo laner?

I personally feel him to be at the weaker end of the spectrum, seeming to lose lane against most other warriors, and late game he lacks the control/pressure a lot of other solos have.

I could be totally wrong, of course, what do you guys think?

So far I'm liking him. My normal build for him is Frostbound Hammer, Warrior Tabi, Shifter's Shield, Bloodforge, Qin's Sais & The Executioner. Maxing his 2 Pin first, then 3 72 Transformations ES and last his 1 Spot Weakness. Leveling his Ult every time you can.
If you go for his 2 first he has a lot of poke power and his 3 as turtle gives you a shield and a closer/knock-up. The biggest thing for him is landing those roots with his 2.
Best combo I've come up with is 2(turtle) to knock them up (canceling it when you do.) His 2 at point blank, then his 1 while body blocking. If they get past you Ult.

Again practice on landing those roots.

Well from the game I just played, the only reason he wasn't doing so well was because I kept fanning his lane. When the duo lane and the mid lane have it under control it made it easier to sit in that lane or kill him. His damage is insane, even when he builds tank.
Haven't played as him or against him in the solo lane to really know. I don't think he brings much to team fights really though

iReauxbot (11) | July 14, 2016 8:44am
Really hard to fight against 1v1. Anybody have any tips theyve managed so far?
He just came to console a couple days ago, so this is more towards the PC players who have more experience against him

His ******* voice pack is annoying to me. Doesnt match his pantheon at all really.

I seen a dude build full tank with this dude and wipe even the assassins out. This isnt an OP complaint at all really, just need some advice. I havent gotten to play as him in Solo due to auto locking, even in ranked somehow, so I dont really have a chance to figure his weakness by playing as him.

GameGeekFan (50) | July 14, 2016 9:21am
Get everyone to focus him.
STUNSSSSS.
Slows, since he has no leap.
Bait his ult, since its his only Hard CC.
Dont fight him 1v1 unless he has no ult, or you are Nemesis or Arachne. Or you have Disarms.

iReauxbot (11) | July 14, 2016 9:28am
We tried, but they had an Athena that covered him pretty nice. However I guess Bellona must be his hard counter or something. The dude on our team annihilated him most the time. It doesnt seem the disarm last long enough though

JayDAxis | July 9, 2016 10:56am
I'm liking him so far. He's got a lot of poke potential with his 2 and seems to piss range off when you catch them with it.

Pairs really well with Anub to keep them in his AOEs.

This guy is really fun to play, his overall gameplay feels like a mix between a Bakasura and an Athena, with his sustained damage and his ability to interrupt fights and add a lot of cc to the mix.

With that said, his ability to heal for 1000 and to proc Death's Toll twice with his Howling Celestial Dog and even more with his aoe autos is insane.
