Charybdis's Skill Order Notes The maxing order is 4, 2, 3, 1.

The reason for this;

- Max your ult whenever possible for the damage increase.
- Max your 2 first for the damage increase.
- Max your 3 second for the cooldown reduction because it is a busted ability. The exit damage is also underrated.
- Max your 1 last because the only damage that scales is damage on minions and the splinter damage - with her 2 and even just 1 point in her 1, you aren't struggling to clear wave.

While submerged, Charybdis is untargetable and immune to damage for up to 3s.

The Maw Hungers

4 Y
Charybdis reveals her true nature, becoming immune to Crowd Control for the next 6s, and gaining movement speed.

If she kills an enemy god with the attack, she gains another 6s and may attack again.

Ability Type: Ground Target
Charge Damage: 60 / 90 / 120 / 150 / 180 (+20% of your Physical Power)

Pros + Cons


PROS

Whirlpool Form is THE BEST escape ability in the game if not the best ability period.
She is extremely hard to gank and dive with Whirlpool Form and the CC immunity from The Maw Hungers
Capsize immediately shreds 40% physical protection for 4s on max tide.
Spike Shot is an amazing wave clearing ability, akin to Rama and Izanami.
The Maw Hungers has multiple uses; burst damage, cc immunity, increased movement speed.
Literally the size of a minion.



CONS

Whirlpool Form can be interrupted in animation. (Doesn't go off cooldown though)
Capsize takes a moment to go off, and must be charged for the full shred/damage.
The Maw Hungers cone damage can be avoided if they beads the line attack, it can also just be aegis'd.
The Maw Hungers is buggy, sometimes you have to be standing still to make it go off, and you ARE standing still when it does go off. So you are a giant, still target that is locked in animation with like 1900 hp.

Hi Mimi,

Solid build of course (standard / universal meta). I do like your commentary for the abilities, and they seem accurate to me.

Quick question: have you ever used Gilded Arrow ( Ornate Arrow) instead of DT, and if so, what's your opinion? I feel WD + DB builds with no other crit is just a bit low for optimal crit chance. Sure, you won't get the same sustain (esp mana), and DT/DE synergizes so well w/ Charybdis' unique attack progression, but the added crit chance late-game just feels so solid, when the games go long enough.
