Poseidon' threats

Introduction

Poseidon is 1 of the most mobile Mages even tho he has no escape ability, he has so much movement speed so his rotations are fast and deadly. His oneshot combo can surprise many unprepared players and screw them up. He is really good for objective burn and teamfights, as he provides cc, slow, cripple and huge damage to secure any teamfight or even outnumbered situation.

He can be played as Mid or Solo laner or even as a Jungler.

Deadly combo: 1. Trident --> 2. Whirlpool --> 3. Release The Kraken! --> 4. autoattack once right after you use Kraken --> 5. Tidal Surge and autoattack as many times as possible after this ability. I like to use Trident before i use my combo to easily stack up the Changing Tides passive.

Skills

Passive Changing Tides - every auto attack stacks up your passive. Higher Tide lvl = more movement speed and more dmg from your abilities, at max Tide lvl you can have up to 30% increased dmg and 15% increased movement speed. This provides enough movement speed for Poseidon so he can rotate and run around the jungle.

His First ability Tidal Surgeis a big wave that damages and pushes back any enemy hit by this ability. It is a good lane clear and also the first ability you pick as a jungler too. Against players you want to use it in close range to be sure that you hit them, or you can use it while someone is chasing you down so you push them back to keep the distance.

His Second ability Tridentis a self buff for Poseidon, you fire 3 auto attacks with increased damage instead of 1 basic attack + you gain up to 30% movement speed at max lvl. All 3 attacks can proc the passive gain so up to 30% of the Tidal Meter per 1 auto attack. This Buff lasts for 6. seconds max. With Chronos' Pendant you can almost spamm it.

His Thrid ability Whirlpoolis a crippling aoe that drags foes into its center, damaging them every 0,5 seconds for 3 seconds. To secure the damage of your ultimate ability Release The Kraken! you want to put this ability underneath enemy feet so they won't use any escape ability.

Ultimate ability Release The Kraken!is the most important ability in his kit. Kraken damages enemies in the range of the ability but damages twice in the center. You also apply slow, knockup followed with stun for 2 seconds. Always try to time this ability so you won't waste it. Try to pick a target to oneshot before you jump into the fight. Sometimes it is better to wait and save Kraken for later. But if there is an opportunity to possibly oneshot 2 players at once, go for it even 1 kill is enough as the second guy won't be able to fight any longer with the remaining health.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
Good movement speed
Nice lane and jungle camp clear
Good objective burn
Great cc, slow and cripple
Nice for kiting more players
Awesome for rotations around the map
Oneshot potential

Cons:
No dash or leap ability
Easy to focus down and kill
After you use Kraken you are not a big threat anymore
Aegis or Puri can f.ck you up

Showcasing some of my games

In these 2 screens i am in the Jungle and you can see how dominant Poseidon can be if you play him correctly.

In these 2 screens i was playing Mid and had a Poseidon against me, i managed to oneshot 3 people with my Release The Kraken! ability as i had the highest level of the game.
