Hey guys I main Athena as a Masters Player in Season 2, so i figured i could make a guide.
I am a Level 10 Athena, and have around 7000 worshipers with her. I played for HNZ (HeroesNZeroes) as Support and helped them win the SPL Play-Ins and advance into Round Robin.... that was quite some time ago though.
The guide is not 100% perfect, though I try my best to keep it updated. I have first-hand experience with the support role, and Athena in particular, and thought I would share my knowledge to help others improve their gameplay and strategy. I am German, so please try to be nice to my *cough* perfect English.
Okay, the main thing you need to know is that you should always, ALWAYS place wards. Remember you can only place two wards at any one time. That means the whole team has the responsibility to place wards, not just you. Since everyone starts with a relic that gives a free ward, that really shouldn't be to hard.
It is practically impossible to place a ward on a wrong position ... well, except inside your own base & ****. However, there are positions you have to consider when placing wards, depending on which stage of the game you're in.
We are in Season 7 now and you may ask, how can i still maintain a steady gold income ?
First of all, i explained this in my Gameplay Video but since it is really outdated I kinda have to do it again.
Always start on the Void Camp, they moved the spawn timer up, so it is possible now to do them and get to your lane in time, if your adc is up for the task. Give the buff to the adc, just like back in the days.
Athena can be a aggresiv roam support, because of her ultimate, so everytime you gank a lane, and you may or may not get a kill/assist, you should stay for 1-2 waves and leach from the lane you ganked, you shouldn't care if your temporary lane friends doesn't want that unlike the adc he gets more solo farm.
If you dont want to leach anymore ,you should go back to base.
On your way back to the duo lane, you should do the Back XP Camp, with or without the junglers help. After you did that, do the Red Buff with the Mid-laner/Jungler together or the Void Camp with your adc.
Then you can go back to lane, stay there until either the xp camps are up, you have to use you ultimate for a gank, or you want to roam to middle lane.
Like this you wont have to much trouble with the gold/exp stuff.
Hey, so due to request i did a 3v3 Tutorial, i dont play that mode so much, but iam decent enough to make a small guide for it. Enjoy.
I also won some worthless 3v3 EGL Tournaments with my alias so you might want to check that out aswell.
outdated, combos still work and laning phase aswell but jungle rotation and ward placement are outdated, will maybe make a new one for Season 7. No promises.
Season 2 Athena Gameplay Video:
How to Firegiant:
I used to play support for HNZ. We got into the Finals of the SWC Play Ins and advanced into Round Robin in order to qualify for the SPL.
You can watch the Tournament Videos if you want, i mostly played Athena at the tourney and there are some combos that you may not know, its already older, so yea....
Round of 16 vs Vindicate:
Round of 8 vs IIIII (i5) (by Xioden)
Round of 4 vs Exposed Secrets:
Final vs Walk it off:
Playing support can be so annoying. I would recommend finding a team as fast as possible if you enjoying playing support.
Why can it be so annoying? Well, you won't get any kind of "love" as a tank. If you and the ADC are winning your lane but it's mostly your doing, the casual player isn't gonna recognize it. On the flipside, if you are doing poorly, EVERYONE is gonna blame you, so you have kinda the same problem as the jungler.
So if you have an inferiority complex, it's probably not in your best interest to play a tank.
But if you are on a pre-made team, and you generally like the people you play with, you're gonna enjoy helping them out, and they will thank you for it. Isn't that so sweet?
Oh, and I nearly forgot, it's okay if you die often in mid-late game as support, as long as you're not dying because you're out of position. That is part of your job ... sometimes you have to sacrifice yourself to save the rest of the team.
