Neith starts off like any other hunter - you go to duo lane with your support and farm.
You are going to want to level her Spirit Arrow
first, then her Unravel
, then her Back Flip
Level 4 you can...
- Level her Spirit Arrow
for better clear and longer root
- Level her Unravel
for more healing and longer debuff
It is a good idea to do your purple buff with your support after the first wave to get the extra experience.
If you find that you are out clearing the enemy pretty hard and you are constantly against their tower line, you need to do something with the pressure.
There is no point in having pressure if you are just sitting there allowing them to clear wave. Look to steal anything that is up - purple buff, red buff, harpies, etc. Keep in mind that the purple buff does stack with 2 people so if your support has it and you steal the enemies, you should take it and vice versa.
Alternatively, if you find that the enemies are clearing wave a lot faster than you, it is a good idea to ask your jungler to clear purple buff while you stay at the wave. This prevents them from getting the extra farm and you can just clear wave until its not as big of an issue.
Around early mid-game, when you clear the wave pretty well yourself, your support will leave duo lane and start wandering around. This gives you time to just farm and get huge before it is constant team fights.
Around mid game, once your support starts wandering, you may find that you have gotten all the farm you can get in that moment and the enemies are hiding behind their tower. At that point, you can look to gank middle lane - only if the enemy is in the lane. If the enemy mid laner is also hiding under the tower, there's really not much to be done.
Keep in mind that by ganking middle lane you will be sacrificing a minimum of one wave - realistically, you will probably sacrifice 2-3. If you gank middle lane and get no kills or assists, or even worse just go out there and die, you have done nothing but lose gold & XP. Choose your fights wisely!
So let's say you've decided to gank. The enemy is near your midlaners tower line and kind of just bullying them. You should go through the entrance that is beside their red buff so you can be behind them while the mid laner is in front - they may have wards but that's okay if you are speedy.
What you should do exactly depends on who the mid laner is, but basically, you will go behind the enemy, root them with her Spirit Arrow
, basic attack while the mid laner does whatever, and they should be dead. You can use her World Weaver
either before, during, or after the gank if you choose.
- Before for the stun (though you could also just stay in your lane and use World Weaver
after letting the mid laner know.
- During so the enemy can't fight back
- After for clean up kills if you can't chase.
Now let's say that you are in your own lane, around the middle-ish and you both have your tier 1 towers. Your jungler calls for a gank.
You should, first of all, make sure the enemy wave is cleared, and then back off. Do not run at the enemy until the jungler comes out to gank because that will make them back up into their tower.
However, do not go so far away that you will not be able to participate in the gank because at that point there is the ADC and support and you will just get your jungler killed.
You should back off slightly, kinda like you're scared, and once the jungler comes in root them with her Spirit Arrow
. You cannot be missing these so make sure you are practicing.
After you root them, use her Unravel
and then move to the side a bit so you can avoid the CC that will inevitably come from the support and just basic attack from a distance. If you'd like you can use her World Weaver
to stun an enemy that is running away.
