Hello, i wan't to talk about Guan Yu, his one of my top favorite gods, i play him a lot in ranked and normal conquest and have a 82% win rate with him. I think Guan Yu is only viable in ranked if his role is support(not solo). i'm sure i have enough experience with Guan Yu to make a guide and share my thoughts on him. Guan Yu has high damage on his ultimate and on his skill number 3 even if his built as a full support, Guan can easily chase down enemies that have escaped from your adc.
Key Bind: Passive
Guan Yu gains force of will as he takes damage. Each instance of damage he receives charges up his Conviction ability, increasing its healing by up to 2x after 20 hits. Guan Yu's basic attacks also utilize a four swing chain with escalating damage and swing time, hitting in a longer narrow line in front of him on the final blow.
Max Heal Multiplier: 2x
Num Hits to Full Charge: 20x
Melee Progression: 1/1/1.3/1.75x damage and swing time
This passive has saved me a lot of times, i sometimes even feel unkillable. If the passive is at a full charge, you will get a good amount of health back by healing yourself.
Key Bind: 1
Guan Yu's courageous leadership is infectious and, when focused, heals himself and his allies and increases physical protections for 3s. Healing friendly gods reduces all cooldowns by 2s.
Healing: 50 / 80 / 110 / 140 / 170
Max Healing: 100 / 160 / 220 / 280 / 340
Physical Protection: 25 / 30 / 35 / 40 / 45
Cost: 60 / 70 / 80 / 90 / 100
This is one of the reasons i almost never die, it gives you a good amount of physical protections and heals some damage too, with the passive the amount of health restored will be much larger, you can also heal your allies and prevent them from dying, i have saved many lives with this ability, keep it off cooldown when you know your about to have a teamfight.
Key Bind: 2
Guan Yu charges forward, his Green Dragon Crescent Blade extended in front of him. All enemies in his path take damage and are slowed. Hitting enemy gods lowers all of Guan Yu's cooldowns by 2s.
Damage: 80 / 135 / 190 / 245 / 300 (+50% of your physical power)
Slow Duration: 2s
Cost: 60 / 70 / 80 / 90 / 100
i use this ability for chasing, escaping and engaging, it's a short dash that does damage in a line and slows the enemies who are hit by it. the ability is good for securing kills too. I like using my ability number 2 before i use my ability number 3, i can stick to my opponent and keep hitting him shredding the health out of him.
Key Bind: 3
Guan Yu spins his blade in a controlled but furious display, slicing enemies for damage every .3s for 3s. Each hit debuffs the enemies' protections. Guan Yu is immune to knockback for the duration.
Damage per Hit: 15 / 25 / 35 / 45 / 55 (+20% of your physical power)
Damage (Total): 150 / 250 / 350 / 450 / 550 +200% of your physical power)
Protection Debuff: 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7
Debuff Max Stacks: 3
Debuff Duration: 3s
Cost: 60 / 65 / 70 / 75 / 80
This ability is awesome, it takes a few protections off the enemy plus it deals a lot of damage, you can shred a lot of health off a squishy with your sword beying a full tank but try not to steal kills from your team, press the right click to stop the ability if you think your team can secure the kill.
Key Bind: 4
Guan Yu mounts his warhorse and charges for 4s. While mounted, he can steer and click to attack and is immune to crowd control. Enemies hit take damage and are slowed. Each hit increases damage from consecutive hits against that target by 20%. Enemies hit on the dismount are stunned. Right-click to dismount early.
Damage: 75 / 100 / 125 / 150 / 175 (+20% of your physical power)
Damage Escalation: 20% per hit
Damage (Max of 6 hits): 745 / 993 / 1241 / 1490 / 1738 (+199% of your physical power)
Slow: 25% for 2s
Cost: 80 / 90 / 100 / 110 / 120
You can't believe how much damage this ability does, in a lane if you adc takes some health off the enemy adc, Guan can just summon his horse and simply kill him with his strikes, the ability also slows when you hit the enemy and stuns a enemy at the end when you jump off the horse. THIS ABILITY IS THE BEST AT TEAMFIGHTS, you can get 5 people stunned for 1.5 seconds if their standing close to eatchother, your team can easily finish them off also it's possible to cancel the ability to get the stun faster on your opponents.
Don't join a ranked match if you think your not good enough to play a role, go and play normal conquest matches till your confident enough you can do well and win.
Guan works best with a team, he can easily hop on his horse and stun half of the enemy team + dealing lots of damage and leaving the kills for the allies to enjoy. Even without Guan's ult he is important to his team in team fights, he has a decent heal, a dash that slows, Guan can easily engage with it and start using your 3 to shred off enemies protections. Don't be afraid to use your horse to save a ally from a though situation and don't forget to heal.
