Fenrir's Skill Order Notes This sequence allows you to have pressure at level one, as long as you can activate your runes to get the stun on your leap, you may get outcleared, but any competent player will take caution in moving up to avoid the stun. I avoid leveling the 2 until later in the build as you begin to need more power later on, with heavier protections items online. I max the 3 before the 1 as it allows you to output more damage, and I think the leap's CC and mobility is useful enough without more damage.

Core.

Notes This core will help you to get tankiness and control for you and your team online quickly, with aura protections and cooldown, as well as adequate power to harrass squishies and be a constant threat.

Notes These items are all reliable options for outputting more damage if you're needing a bit of extra bite (Get it?) and if youre up against less healing oriented gods, which seem to be prevalent currently due to the nerfs to some antiheal items.

Final items, upgrading or selling starters.

Notes I find that selling war flag for talisman of energy can benefit your team if you have a team that can get kills off of more movement speed, such as a Bakasura Jungle or other hypercarry style gods.

Relic choices

Notes I find myself gravitating towards Heavenly wings and thorns most games, allowing me to run down ADCs and setup kills for my team, taking as little damage as possible, also upgraded thorns is very strong in conjunction with a strong antiheal build. However, Magic Shell can be subbed in for a more peel oriented playstyle, protecting your damage dealers. I like frenzy if I know my ADC and Mid can go wild and frag out, also upgraded heavenly wings with Frenzy makes for one hell of a scary Hunter as people seldom expect the fatalis effect with high damage. Blink should be bought if you're finding it hard to get into and out of fights without getting mulched, this means you can blink in, do damage or ult, whatever, and then use your leap to get out, or even chase further with the stun on it.

How to Fenrir.


Ok, essentially. Your job in the early game is to help your ADC clear wave (Crazy right?) Also, try to build up your runes by hitting five auto attacks on minions, this will allow you to stun on your 1st ability, which is a leap. This ability will be your best friend in pestering the other team and setting up for your team's damage.

I would avoid using the 2 in the early game, which is a power and lifesteal buff. This is because your mana should be reserved for setting up stuns and kills with your team. Your mana economy is not the best, if you run out, you may need to back to base or use your war flag passive if that's the starter you purchase. Later on your base mana will increase with levels and itemisation, so you can be more liberal in using this ability for sustain and damage with your 3.

Your 3 is 4 sequential attacks that can allow you to stick to enemies, as you are knockup immune. However if you get hard CCed or your target leaps away or dies, the ability will be cut short. It can be used for early wave clear and harrassment in lane, as it damages in an area around your target. Later on it is still useful for damage. But I like to use it in conjunction with thorns to bodyblock ADC autos or Mage abilities in the late game, with your tankiness. Keep in mind, this ability follows through dashes and roots, so hunters like Cernunnos and Medusa are vulnerable to this tactic.

https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitter.com%2Fdog_rates%2Fstatus%2F872967104147763200&psig=AOvVaw1K8EsJuVBKy9On_MiiYegN&ust=1612437378416000&source=images&cd=vfe&ved=0CAIQjRxqFwoTCPjQ7cPLze4CFQAAAAAdAAAAABAD

So, the ultimate makes the dog big. When your ultimate is activated, you will become CC immune, gain movement speed and will have an attack cone in front of you, biting an enemy god will pick them up, you can then carry them in any direction for the duration of the ability, or until they become CC immune, which will cancel your ultimate. I don't max the ultimate as all it gives you is additional base damage. When using it, try to pick up squishies like hunters or assassins, as your team will more easily be able to kill them as opposed to you launching an angry Ymir at your 400 health mid laner.

Have fun with this build, I know I have. Woof Woof!!

You missed a point in your ult at level 17.

I think you get more value from the 2's sustain, leveling the ult only grants extra base damage.

Sorry I misworded what I meant. Your ult only has 4 points in it, and there is a gap in your 16th point. The 2 needs a point at 16 and your ult needs one at 17 by the looks of your current order.

I'd say Pridwen is core on Fen support cause the shield appears as soon as you go CC immune.

I prefer to leave the core open to a more damage oriented playstyle, working well with the high power on ancile and Fenrir's harrassment early, then buying Pridwen later on when your CC becomes more integral to winning teamfights.

It also benefits from the full runes double protections, making the shield size enormous.
