Long time no see, Stuke here with another guide. Today, we are looking at the golden boy of Greek mythology, the seemingly indestructible and almost completely perfect, Achilles.
Note: you don't have to follow this guide to the smallest detail, these are suggestions on how to play Achilles. I encourage you to look at the comment section below and see other suggestions.
When it comes to building Achilles, I prefer to build a balance between my offence and defense and throughout a fight I like to take my shirt off or put it back on if I'm dominating or getting dominated. If you want to go shirt, this provides a good amount of defense. Going skin, there's a good amount there to bring the pain.
Once again, this depends on the role you want as what you wear will affect how your play style.
For Solo: you wear your shirt as much or little as you want but it's best if you at least put it on for the late game.
For Jungle: focus on skin mode with mare aggressive high damage items
- Your shirt is your best friend.
While it is tempting to run around bare chested for a nice damage and speed boost looks attractive, you're not as durable as you think you are and just because you're a warrior doesn't make you invincible.
- Don't execute every chance you get.
While it is fun to get an execute on a target in the most dramatic way possible, the negative effect of becoming easier to kill is the antithesis of being a tank. out of all the execute abilities in the game, Achilles is the most dangerous if you miss or the target isn't below the threshold as you'll be in the middle of the fight. Use it when certain you'll get out or kill the target.
- The Combos
The basic combo in a fight should go something like this:
Radiant Glory -> Combat Dodge -> CD basic -> Combat Dodge -> Shield of Achilles -> CD basic -> Fatal Strike
While he might not be mechanically deep, you can switch up the order of these abilities to fit your own preference.
To sum this all up, Achilles is a beautiful man with a kit that complements his nearly god like potential as a fighter. Pick the right attire for the situation or whatever play style you're going for, use your kit to apply constant damage and heal off all targets, and remember that you're INDESTRUCTIBLE (expect for one flaw).
