Introduction

Hi Hi Hi

I'm Nyxfulloftricks and here is a quick guide for a Cerberus Support who wants to play more attack dog than guard dog.

I'll give a few pros and cons as well as where this good pupper shines.

Pros / Cons

Pros

Early damage potential is high with ability to get a lot of kills and dominate duo lane.
This can lead to you leaving lane to help mid much earlier.
Also great for invading enemy red when you have wave pressure up.


Cons
You won't be the tankiest boy, so you have to be careful for high damage matchups early and bait abilities before you attack in.

Skills and Techniques


__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Paralyzing Spit


Paralyzing Spit is a line shot that fires venom from Cerberus's snake tail and if alert his three heads. If an enemy takes a shot from all three heads and tail they are stunned. This is a very hard stun to hit, but is great in combination with Ghastly Breath. Whether in duo or solo, this ability is great for clearing wave quickly. Use in combination with ghastly breath to clear jungle camps with ease.

Ability:Projectile
Range :50



__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Ghastly Breath


Ghastly Breath unleashes a cone of noxious breath from all three heads to damage enemies in range 7 times over 2.4s. This reduces magical protections of enemies and slows enemies in the center of his breath up to three times. This will alert all heads for Paralyzing Spit.

Ability:Cone
Range:35



__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Soul Expulsion


Soul Expulsion is a short leap that can go through walls. It also has the added benefit of releasing the souls of minions and enemy gods which Cerberus can kill to heal himself.

Ability:Leap
Radius:15




__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Stygian Torment


Stygian Torment is an ult with great cc power. Cerberus wails summoning souls of the damned which will knockup all Enemy gods damaging them. This knockup also creates a link to Cerberus pulling the gods affected towards him. This ability can be a great setup for Allies, or at least rip beads off Enemy gods. It is also a great way to rip an enemy team away from Fire Giant allowing your team to secure it. To do this blink in the circle use your ult and then leap out with Soul Expulsion.

Ability:Area
Radius:30



__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Spirit of Death


Spirit of Death is Cerberus's passive. Any time an Enemy God within 40 units of Cerberus is healed, the heal is reduced by 20% and Cerberus receives 40% of the heal. This will helps Cerberus sustain a lot against healers and is a mini Pestilence.

Ability:Buff
Range:40

Why is Jade Emperor's Crown core?

Nyxfulloftricks | May 14, 2019 3:49pm
I chose Jade emperor's crown because it's a great early item to protect from minion wave and hunter while focusing hunter.

But why prioritise it for that when Sovereignty serves that purpose? Also by the time you get that item online, aren't you meant to be rotating over to mid lane or in the jungle between Mid and Duo? (if gold fury area or mid harpies are contested)

That's what I would like to know too. Also, where is Gauntlet of Thebes? It has good health, HP5 and dual protections when upgraded; I'd drop urchin for it personally.

I personally just prefer more power and protections than health items which is why Gauntlet of Thebes is listed as an alternative item for people who want to play more tank and less aggressive damage.
