How To Play Nu Wa Mid Lane

How To Play Nu Wa in Conquest, playing Nu Wa can be easy and hard depending on the gods you face. For example she's really good when controlling tanks in team fights around the Mid Game - Late Game as her CC and damage is extremely high. This being said there are more Cons to playing Nu Wa than pros playing her.

Pros; High Damage, High CC, Unmissable Ultimate, Weaken enemies Protections, Amazing Minions Clear, Global Team Ward Ultimate, CC Immune Ultimate and AoE Team invisible with movement increase.

Cons; No Escape, Poor Backline Damage, Easy Kill [Unless she has ultimate], Clay minions can get one-shotted, Slow Movement Speed, No Immune frames and more.

I've listed builds above to give you an idea how to build her in Conquest or other modes too. Sometimes the build will need changing based off the game you are in. Divine Ruin is an item you may need to build 90% of the time and won't be able to use the build listed above. When having to deal with healers or Lifesteal users this optional build can be the best bet. Gem of Focus, CDR boots, Chronos Pendant, Divine Ruin, Soul Gem and Obsidian Shard. This build may not have the best items in the game but it's do able when fighting very tanky gods and having to kill healers alongside them too.

Nu Wa Early Game: In the early it's best to always play passive when you are alone. Meaning always take the safe way to lane or into the jungle. Unlike other gods Nu Wa can't jump over always or increase her movement by a high amount to get her out of death situation. The only time you shouldn't be playing passive is when you are with your jungle or Support in the early part of the game. As there is no way you are able to deal mage from long range and when you are passive at the back you might miss chances of getting a kill.

Nu Wa Late Game: ALWAYS SAVE THE ULTIMATE FOR TO COUNTER PEOPLE DIVING YOU IN THE BACKLINE. Never use the ultimate for no reason because that's brain dead and really dumb. When good players see a Nu Wa using her Ultimate for no reason the next team fight you'll be 100% a easy kill for them.

For more help or more into I do streams on Twitch and Videos on Youtube in high ranked games and Fun casuals. Please take a look if you are a player looking to become a better Nu Wa. Also If you need help on other Mages feel free to join the Discord Server below.

You don't want Gem of Focus on Nu Wa as you're not really spamming abilities to keep the passive up. Archmage's Gem feels better on her because you get big bursts on your 2 > 1 combo and your ult.

No1 buys Soul Gem and Archmage's Gem together. One counters the other, I even listed it in the comments too. When you get Soul gem the Archamge gem is mostly on cool down. Also Nu Wa can spam abilities too with her 3 on a very short cool down. Nu Wa combo does a **** load of damage anyway. Having movement and being more tanky with damage in the same item is not bad at all. If you wanna get Archmage gem on her u can but it's gonna be a problem with Soul Gem in 90% of the fights. As she can only get stacks on soul gem with the 1 or the 3.

Yeah she's one of the couple of mids you still go Archmage on. Though you could spam her 1, 2, 3 before casting her ult for Gem of Focus. Also Sundering is dead (in Mid) in 8.4, but I don't really think Nu Wa uses it too well right now anyway considering it's only gonna proc on one target with her ult.
