Jungling

It is VERY important to remember the following;

.-.Ne Zha has very low hp, Therefore needs a companion at level 1 to help him execute the jungle creeps easily, Should always go for speed, using hog then going to mana, granting the mana buff to the solo laner as you have speed buff. Then going to clear the xp camps.

.-. Always clear out the mid xp camps. Very VERY important and could grant you the upper hand on the enemy jungler.

.-. Invade their camps only at level 10+ and be sure to have backup near you if all else fails..

.-. Keep killing the damage camps (Allowing your mid the buff and the advantage)
The mana camps for your solo laner, and the other camps for the duo laners they can handle it alone.

.-. always rotate and gank and support..

.-. Never ever lose track of your levels and find yourself at level 7 while others on 12.. That is the worst thing ever and could damage your game and your K/D which makes you pretty much useless.

Items

One should always Either build Critical/health regen Ne Zha
( For brawling and regenerating health by the seconds since Ne Zha has not much hp )

Or building attack speed Ne Zha to quickly execute the enemy and run out with no loss and an easy kill…

Teamfights with Ne Zha

Much like Awilix, Scylla, Etc.
Ne Zha should stay in the back of the line, waiting for a chance to get a kill, Thenwhich using her sash ability then getting the hell out of the place after securing the kill if necessary using his ult & if he did not use his ult and they surrounded him, the best way out is to either sash to the furthest enemy then using ult to escape of just ulting out…

When using Ne Zha you can brawl since his has much crits, But its best if you be a true assassin, come from the back if necessary..

Combos and tips

Always when playing Ne Zha jungle, You can literally gank from the back or the front, it really doesn't matter since he can't run with your stunning sash on his neck,
a good tip would be, jungling Ne Zha you really don't need to stress since you have great cc for individuals and you can wreck them completely buy the following combo,
Activate your 2 (The attack speed buff) then sash other by your 3 and while he is stunned for 1 full second you could've got two perfect crits on him since your attack speed if out of this world, by which when he starts running away, You use your ultimate to kill the opponent and greatly damage any nearby enemies..

Also, Always use your 1 to clear minion paths as it travels throughout the whole lane of minions and possibly doing minor damage to the enemy behind that lane of minions trying to get last hits… And minor hit on minor hit makes a major damage...

Pros and Cons

PROS:
Fast attack speed
CC is acceptable
Abilities come in handy when banking.
1- Ne Zha tosses a ring that travels through all minions/enemies in the area and does minor damage,
2-Ne Zha buffs himself with attack speed and physical penetration
3- Ne Zha tosses his sash, If grabs an enemy, Ne Zha travels through the enemy stunning and doing damage.
4- Ne Zha travels/dashes forward and upon hitting an enemy, Ne Zha does critical damage to the enemy that can drop their health 75% down if crits are enough and when finished, a small radius near Ne Zha and the enemy explodes doing damage to all nearby enemies

Cons:
Very squishy
Only escape he has is his Ultimate.
CC abilities are hard to get right
Abilities Cons;
1- The ring does minor damage and sometimes doesn't travel that far due to the distance between one enemy and the other.
2- Ne Zha's buff looks like it gives speed but it really doesn't, new Ne Zha players mistake the buff for an escape, I always chase Ne Zha's noticing the activate the buff on sight and run away, not only wasting mana, But putting it on its long cool down which gives me a huge advantage.
3- The sash he throws must be EXACTLY directed at the enemy to stun and push you to them, Its ridiculously precise.
4- If you want to ulti someone successfully , They must be 1 meter in front of you if you want a secure ulti , so get closer and be patient…

Pro tip: try not to ulti someone in a team fight near Anubis because he'll welcome you back to the ground with his wrecking abilities...

Skills

What I think Ne Zha is best at is simple fast ganks…
For many reasons that follow;

-Ne Zha's abilities take a very long time to cooldown.

-3 of her 4 abilities include fast pull-to target, Fast buff as her 2 abilities, Her ultimate is a very fast dash onto the enemy, knocking them up and crit them to death..

Also Ne Zha very much so depends on critical damage if you plan to brawl your way through a fight with ne zha..

Introduction

Ne Zha
When we speak of him, what comes to mind is that he is very squishy however thats not the case when out comes to juggling NeZha since he is very agile and fast, can bank and rotate very sneakily and fast..
He is squishy, However, His fast attack speed makes up every flaw you can possibly come up with since he can literally jump in solo lane, wreck you from behind if you're under 75% health and he has his ult up, and walk away with an easy kill.. people undermine Ne Zha as a god in this game, he is very underrated and in this guide I'll show you how exactly to "Ne Zha" properly..

This guide is terrible no offense but the build is all wrong and people are going too see this try this build and think they are bad with Ne Zha but actually its your terrible build...

A down vote from me...(first every down vote)


none taken, I remind you again that its the build I always use and I do good at, So it works for me, Not only because you suck at this build with NeZha meaning its bad, every person uses his god differently I certainly do brilliant with this build :) then again try it you might be good at it, give it a chance, if not then mash half the build with whichever you use and try it out in practice :)

Since others have already made their comments as to your build, I'm not going to repeat their thoughts on what the standard for Ne Zha is. However I will note that some people don't build very crit-oriented Ne Zhas since his ultimate is very vulnerable to retaliation, most building only Rage. Attack speed on Ne Zha isn't as viable competitively, but can work fine in more casual game modes. However, I will note that you are overcapping Ne Zha's attack speed by about 40% whenever you use Flaming Spear. This means that your attack speed buff literally is doing nothing for you, I'd at the very least recommend only grabbing so many attack speed items as such that they're still useful. Maybe grab Bloodforge instead of Asi and Warrior Tabi rather than Ninja Tabi, something like that. As for sticking to enemies, Ne Zha has a decent slow as well as Armillary Sash as a distance closer, but he still does have trouble sticking to enemies. I would recommend grabbing sprint or your recommended Weakening Curse to make up for this fault.

Finally though... please don't buy Teleport to Gods... it's currently the worst active in the game. As long as your team has wards Shielded Teleport is 1000x better in just about every conceivable way.

In any case, TLDR: decent tips, your guide sections seem to be backwards, but the content is alright. Build could use a little work even for attack speed Ne Zha, but I'm always interested in seeing how people try to break the meta.

Thank you for such great advice, You're recommendations are under advisement :D <3

Thats actually beautiful advice, With what Zillby wrote and your recommendation, Im definitely updating the guide with GP and maybe shielded teleport, because those two have tactical advantages to the jungle.

You called him her ... like ... ehhh ... It's expected you know the god's gender to do a guide about him/her


It was a mistake, I still wrote him so many times, that her was a mistake, even sometimes when I'm roleplaying on other games i write my own self as her lol :P Im just dumbXD

Umm yeah, He is a boy, hence the title of the guide, chill for a minute xD And the guide itself is merely a different way of going at it, its the way I've been doing a while, noticing i've gotten better results, maybe some other people who play like me can try this build out, its not an obligation, Besides, If I was you, and I was looking for a Ne Zha guide I'd probably have to draft pick 1 between hundreds of others for crit, whilst not as much attack speed.. Im not forcing this build onto you

I remind you, I clearly stated you can actually use any other build, mash it into this one for all I care, As long as you get good results, because for me, Crit alone does nothing, I play an assassin how an assassin is meant to be played, I don't use a Loki as an Osiris, Because I see no logic in having a little kid brawling his way through with crits, not just that, I also don't do very good with crit on him, DK why DC too, But the point is, Im not forcing this, its just my opinion of another way to use this god just like how I use bacchus for a different reason than what other people use him for, Thats the reason I make guides, and seeing you are actually coming here telling me I'm doing it wrong, Just don't waste your time and read such a long guide then, Really, I wouldn't mind, As long as you get good outcome with crit Ne Zha, Don't bother reading new guides :)

Dude...

I won't even talk about the guide, since it's YOUR opinion, but...


Ne Zha is a boy. You can't deny that.

Nooooooo...
This guide is alright (some sections seem out of order, plus there's no BBcode), but honestly, the skills and items are all wrong. Building attack speed is bad on Ne Zha, even though he has a good hit chain, since you have no penetration, crit, flat power, or a way to stick ( Frostbound Hammer, Hastened Fatalis, Greater Sprint, etc). Instead...

Attack speed on its own is not good enough on any god. Even Nemesis and Kali build either crit or some way of sticking. You have neither.

Math time:
1) Your movement speed is fundamentally less than other gods unless you use Frostbound Hammer or Hastened Fatalis. Therefore, you will make a finite number of auto attacks before they're out of melee range.
2) Your basic attacks do (at level 20) approximately 83 base damage. With this build ( Ninja Tabi Jotunn's Wrath Winged Blade Qin's Sais The Executioner), you have 120 physical power (not doing penetration math right now, but assume somewhere around 120). Therefore, your autos will be doing 203 damage with full build and level 20.
3) Ne Zha's hit chain will be 203 damage - 203 damage - 304 damage - 406 damage.
4) Assuming this hit chain, and a maxed attack speed (you actually might be overcapped with this, but I'm not sure), it will take two full iterations of the hit chain to kill an ADC building no physical defense, which they do not. Eight full auto attacks. With no sticking potential.

90% of the gods in the game have either movement speed steroids, jumps, dashes, or CC to stop you from hitting them. Therefore, it is necessary to do the maximum amount of damage possible in the few crucial moments you are attacking them. Ne Zha's kit synergizes with crit, two of his abilities can crit without basic attacks, and yet you build full attack speed, which is simply less efficient. For a Ne Zha guide on a site that markets to a beginner audience, this doesn't seem right.
