Have You Ever Seen the Rain: Chaac Guide (S5)
October 7, 2018
What's up guys, Stuke here and I've got a new guide for you.
I know it's been a long while since I released a new guide, but I feel it was worth the wait. So, for this new installment in my Warrior Series, we'll be looking at the Mayan pantheon's first warrior with the power of torrents at his command. I bring you Chacc, the God of Rain. Note: you don't have to follow this guide to the smallest detail, these are suggestions on how to play Chacc. I encourage you to look at the comment section below and see other suggestions.
Who is Chaac?
is a physical, melee, warrior that is a very good and safe solo lane pick because of his ability to sustain in both health and in mana. If used correctly, Chaac
can be a serious threat to anyone who has underestimated him.
Pros / Cons
- High area damage
- Great Health and Mana Management
- CC Machine
- Loses Damage in Late Game
- Must Build Up Passive to Keep Mana
- Anti-Heal is his Downfall
This is how Chaac keeps his place as the Solo King. After a set number of basic attacks, your next ability will cost no mana when used, but will only works for one ability and must be recharged to get it to work again. I personally like to use this passive with his third ability as it keeps me in the lane longer than most gods in the game.
Chaac throws his axe and it deals damage in an area of where it was tossed, but there's a catch. After the axe lands, your second and third ability will be focused on the point where the axe was thrown.
Chaac takes his axe and spins in around himself dealing AoE damage, every enemy hit by this ability gives Chaac protections up to a certain number. If used after your axe is throw then you teleport to your axe, dealing based damage to every enemy passed through, and then the rest of the ability goes off. It's nice to use as a gank tool or escape (I will explain it in the Tips and Combos section).
Activating this ability gives you healing over time and an AoE slow that follows you for the duration. After throwing your axe, the area where it landed also gets an even larger AoE slow. Both the slow from you and your axe location can stack on top of each other so use this wisely.
With a short wind up, Chaac activates a large radius knock-up and silence that also deals damage. During the channeling of this ability, Chaac also gets damage mitigation and CC immune before coming back down.
How to Build Chaac
Chaac is an Ability-based Warrior, but here's where it gets strange for him. With the way his passive is set up, Chaac could also go for a Hybrid or even an Auto Attack build. It is more recommended that you just stick with Ability for the Early Game power and total control for the Late Game, if you want to go Hybrid then get your build set up for your high ability damage in the Early Game then buy some AA items for the Late.
Stages of the Game
Chaac is at his most powerful during this stage, his opponents cannot fight back since they will have a hard time keeping up with Chaac's ability to keep his health and mana properly sustained longer than any other god in the game as of right now.
A Stalemate stage for Chaac. Just survive the lane and push up on them to keep the pressure high.
After dealing enough damage to your lane, roam the map and become the teams CC Machine alongside the support.
In conclusion, Chaac is the undying bully whose presence can change the way a fight goes down or the undisputed King of the Solo Lane. Weave in Autos to keep that mana up and the proper uses of the axe in conjunction with his other abilities for interesting effects in a fight and remember who makes it rain on the battleground.
