NEW SKILLS COMBOS
You still have one shot potential given loki's AA buff back to 100% but the rework for now--its best you just do these ability combos for successful ganks.
First, for GANKING
1>>AA>>2>>AA(if building crit)
Vanish before using your 2 when entering the lane. Enemies upon seeing your 2 will run away from the AOE and try to escape, thats where you would sneak behind them AA to get the bleed from your 1 and as theyre leaving do your 3 since it has range and can do BEHIND YOU damage.
Second, for TEAMFIGHTS
If youre going against your enemy jungler and mid. Put down your 2 to box in or disperse your enemies and pick off either target with your 3, if they decide to step into your 2 and take the blind and passive dmg then immediately do your 3 and do lots of damage when boxing with them. If you build Brawlers,Crusher, or Heartseeker; His 2 is great for range application so enemies cant heal from a distance when battling against Mages or Hunters
Last, the ULTIMATE combo
This is your all-in combo to fully kill your target.
Vanish to sneak up on them, activate your 2 to distract them and deter them away from escaping, immediately ult them to cripple and stun them in your 2 AOE zone, from there they will be blinded and take damage from your 3 and the bonus 20% passive damage. Boom, that final heavy strike from your 3 will finish them off
This rework is definitely changing up the way people approach Loki, some will hate it and some will be relieved. Majority will say its a buff and makes Loki a B-A+ tier God now. Loki mains will split over this but that was predictable. As a main myself, Its acceptable. Im not in love with it but its a for-the-better change in Loki's kit. Its just that theres so much MORE potential they couldve gave this loki rework but HiRez was afraid their playerbase is stuck with PTSD of old loki so its like they feel if they buff him then its back to the drawing board cuz people will hate it and say hes broken. As you saw in the notes below each ability, there were suggestions on how to improve the kit instead of just bumping dmg numbers but will HiRez listen? Not likely, whatever makes them more money. Loki's new kit couldve been alot better if they stuck with more Lore-wise abilities and more trickery and deceit instead of just this slow poke of a rework that barely covers any abilities of deceit. The Morrigan is more of Loki than Loki himself. And thats just sad. Who knows how theyll change him, im not holding any hopes but im still open for discussions on how to improve the kit.
The problems before still exist today, its just a whole nerf to his kit to slow down those problems. Noobs using new loki will experience the same they did back with old loki considering how easy his kit is to use and how easy it will be for experienced players to counter him. Loki can still pubstomp but higher ranks will know better to have picked a better jungler on their team to be 2 steps ahead.
i am gonna miss proxy laning to troll the enemy team...goodbye old loki
