A little bit about the build

Full stage
I know that you may not like shadowdrinker. I was skeptical of him myself, but this invisibility is ideally suited to continue the attack. I've played a lot of games and people always think that in invisibility, you step back and walk towards you yourself, suspecting nothing. It's very funny to watch this, because they, like bots, lose full interest in you, as if they hadn't even seen you. After playing a little with this item, you will feel its power and most importantly - a unique and fun gameplay.

At level 8, leave a skill point, at level 9 we will upgrade 1 skill and ult.

About abilities

Our first skill is our farm. We almost always use it for farming. In all other situations, we use it to finish off, or to focus together with our team on one enemy (if for some reason you can't come up and hit with your hand). It also allows you to keep your distance from arrogant magicians or hunters. If you want to use it for harassment, then only to kill later.

The second skill gives us greater mobility. This may sound ridiculous, but let me explain. It perfectly synergizes with our build, two katanas that give movement speed and speed buff turn us into a real god of speed. In addition, the attack speed is underestimated, very underestimated

The third skill is escape. Not the best, even below average. He has a big enough hitbox and in the vicinity you will often crash into the enemy. He is also weak for initiation, because he does not give anyone cc immunity. It works great 1vs1 next to the wall. Here, yes, he reveals himself 100%, but the walls are not everywhere :(

And our sweetness is ult. Perhaps one of the most uncomfortable in the game. For comparison, ult ratatosk. It allows you to pass through any obstacles, and understanding how sound works in this game makes it almost silent, and most importantly, you do not need to aim. What about ours? It has a delay in application - the charge itself, as well as the start of the run, which takes merc a second. It's enough to step aside. BUT that's why it's a guide (pseudo..). The most convenient positions for the ulta are behind the enemy, or to the left or right of him. When he looks at you, he starts to mance and it really works, it's very difficult to get into such an enemy. But in these three positions, he does not see us, which is why he moves predictably. Use it.

We need to buy the crits as soon as possible, without them we simply won't be able to show anything significant. In an easy matchup , we can play the classic build (#1). What does easy mean? Enemies have few escapes and stuns (they are the most dangerous of all). And also there is no burst potential to kill us (it is always there, but I mean that two enemies will not be able to kill you for control and you will be able to leave).Now let's talk about a difficult matchup.There are enemies in the peak that can kill you solo (see Extreme difficulty). If you have already seen two of the list, buy the build (#2). Of course, you can play on the first build, it all depends on which rank you are playing on. But on diamonds and masters (from 2400+), ALWAYS assemble according to the second assembly. If you are on platinum or gold, nvm. Play the first one and get high.

By the way, Awilix can be defeated if you keep her at a distance and give her 1 skill, and beat your hands only after 3 (and then near the wall).

I will supplement it, if I come up with any new thoughts or I learn something new and useful, check at least once a month if you are going to play on this tra-.. build.Finally, all that I have told you can be complete ********, because everyone has their own understanding and style of play, you do not have to buy exactly as in the build. Experiment and study.
