Introduction To Osiris, the broken god:
Pros and Cons
High sustained damage
Good early game
High base mitigations (needs to build less protections)
Low AA damage.
Ult is a hard skillshot
Everybody hates him
|Osiris is lucky to be gifted with this as a passive. At max stats, it's the equivalent to having a permanent Spirit Robe passive on you. However, it's difficutl to use to maximum efficiency. For instance, as soon as the game starts, level Spirit Flail and use it in the fountain. This will give you an extra edge for the first wave. Oh yeah. And it's a free Hastened Fatalis passive. HiRez, what were you thinking! (one last thing. Against Ymir or Cabrakan, when they let loose their walls, you can just Sickle Strike to get up to your full passive, and just walk through it. It's really fun.)|
|On the surface, this ability is really weak. It has low damage and low scaling. However, the utility it gives is quite good. This is your cheap poking ability, it's got a low cooldown/mana cost so don't worry about blowing it. This is why Bluestone Pendant and Gladiators Shield work well on Osiris. If he has any cooldown reduction at all, he can spam it like there's no tomorrow. And while it doesn't deal much damage, it will add up.|
|This is the ability you should definitely prioritize first. First off, your clear is abysmal without it (granted, it's abysmal with it). Also, it's an easy to hit relatively-high damaging poke, and it got buffed not long ago. This also has a low cooldown, contributing to the attraction of Bluestone Pendant.|
|This is why Osiris is able to be a good boxer. Fully maxed, this can literally half an opponents damage output. This is why every nubis fears a good Osiris. With the slow from Sickle Strike, you can easly stay close to your target and get the stun off. I admit it's not the greatest CC but, this is Osiris, you have to make do with what you get. Always use this while boxing someone.|
|Before you do anything else, i want you to look at the damage on this ability. This is more than most ults, although it's tricky to land. The healing reduction you will find is really only useful against Chaac, and the momentary root is useless. To use this ability to its max, wait until whoever you're fighting uses a big attack, like hercules's and Bellona's ultimates. Just jump over the ult onto them, dealing massive damage and setting up the kill. A hard ability to use, so I recommend practicing hitting it.|
|Talk about a pushover. Early game, he clear is vastly less than yours, and while she can build AA based, you will always win in a boxing match. Her healing isn't much, so don't bother using your ult just for the healing negation. Just remember to leap over the last strike of her Dazzling Offensive with Lord of the Afterlife. Otherwise, just keep poking her with Sickle Strike to keep her under the tower.|
|Another pushover match. Ravana specializes against high burst-damage ability based gods such as Hercules. However, your only large burst damage is in your ult. Otherwise, just box him as normal and avoid being rooted.|
|Osiris is the equivalent of anti- Odin fire. His burst damage, although high, is not enough to kill you with your Fragmented. And if he attempts to capture you within his tower with Ring of Spears, just use your passive to walk out of it. This will severely annoy the Odin, which, in my opinion, is half the battle.|
|This matchup is a bit less easy, but you will be able to win it. Chaac specializes as a counter to mages because of his silence and nigh-unkillability. Just replace Runeforged Hammer with Witchblade and you can out-box him.|
|You look familiar... Against Osiris, the better player will win. The best way to gain an advantage is to use the AA chain resetting that I will describe in the boxing section. And don't allow yourself to be hit by Lord of the Afterlife.|
|Against herc, you have about a 50% chance of winning. His early clear is far better than yours, and if you don't buy anti-heal, you will never be able to kill him, especially with the Bracer of Undoing on herc meta. Again, replace Runeforged Hammer with Witchblade. Also, during the first wave, buy Death's Toll and attempt to outclear him with your cleaves.|
|Another interesting matchup. Both of you specialize in high sustained boxing damage. Early game, he can outbox you with his Death's Toll and Howling Celestial Dog combo. Buy Witchblade against him, as it reduces his attack speed. And if he ults, be sure to hit him with Lord of the Afterlife, as even with Witchblades healing reduction, it's just way too much lifegain.|
|The hardest matchup in this section.Buy Bluestone Pendant against her, as her early clear is insane. Don't let her box you within her Eagle's Rally aura. Otherwise, her Shield Bash will be annoying and her disarm is devastating when correctly used. However, if you play your cards right, you will win.|
|There's a reason she's a goddess of victory. At all stages of the game, she will outclear and out-burst you. In the early game, her high ability damage at level two with Bluestone Pendant will keep you away from the minion wave. Get bluestone against her and attempt to pressure her under the tower. Late game, you can solo her, but don't attempt a true boxing match. Also, avoid being disarmed.|
|He's basically Nike who can give the minion wave a second life. First off, he far outclears you at any time. Secondly, while you're AA-ing the minions, and have them down to one bar, he'll heal them. This will both make your laning phase a nightmare and make you depressed. Just buy Pestilence and Witchblade. And you'll still have trouble.|
|Basically, he shuts down AA-ers. He'll be building high protections because of Sleeping Giant, meaning you'll deal no damage. And his Umbrellarang just deals way too much damage. He can easly keep you under the tower. Late game, your team will need Witchblade against him.|
|The second hardest warrior you'll do battle with. First off, while his clear isn't as insane as Nike or Vamana, but it's still more than yours. However, his tiger stun- Master's Will-run away-staff you combo is devastating. With a typical Sun Wukong final build, this will deal 1135 damage (pre-mitigations) that you can do nothing about. During this combo, because of the stun and slow, you won't be able to hit a single AA. The most you can hope for is a Sickle Strike.|
|Now, I, on a personal level, hate everything about Tyr. He's so hard to fight against! AAs are useless since you're knocked up 100% of the time and his base damage is so freaking high! I don't think i've won more than 4 solo lane matchups against Tyr as Osiris, and i've faced the matchup at least 30 times. If any of the other warriors give you depression, you should call suicide control if you're against Tyr.|
In summary of this guide: You are Osiris, the king of the afterworld. You launch yourself at your opponents, laughing as their feeble attacks bounce off your passive. You manage a 5-man tether and are feeling pretty badass. Then you're obliterated. What, your team didn't follow you in? Stupid teammates. Still, it's not your fault because Osiris is the least powerful god in the game. Oh well. Back to your normal gods.
This situation will happen to most of you. At first. If you manage to suffer through his steep learning curve, you will find that Osiris is a flexible god who can go toe-to-toe with anyone (except Tyr). Look at your diamond Osiris. Then feel proud. You, just like me, and maybe a dozen other people have earned it.
