Beginning


Simple Item/Skill Guide for Hel, been working for me so far. Don't worry if you're not doing well Early Game, Hel has a really bad Early Game, but your levels will catch up eventually and you'll soon be an unstoppable damage/support.

Skills


Getting Repulse maxed out first helps when killing creeps in lane, and when at max it will kill the small ones instantly, making for easy pushes.
Hinder/Cleanse won't be used that much, so keeping it at low levels is usually fine.
Decay is good for clearing out any straggling creeps/gods. You should get good at aiming Restoration because if you can land it, it will be your most valuable heal
Switch Stances will be your most used ability, as good timing of switching between damage/healing is key when playing Hel. While it is an ability, it can be activated anytime, even if you are below lvl 5, to switch stances. Upgrading just upgrades the Aura and Self Buff effects.

Conclusion


If you were hoping for a more in-depth guide, then read the title again. This guide is meant to be simple for those who are new and want to start learning Hel. Thank you for reading. This is my first guide made so if you have any tips/critiques, please comment and tell me. Goodbye!

Sorry but the start needs work. No blessing and/or no tier 1 item with MP5, this start is setting you up to lose. A suitable start would be something like Mage's Blessing, Spellbook, 1 x Healing Potion, 2 x Mana Potion.

Some of the relics listed aren't good either, and by listing things like meditation you're letting new player habits get worse, and that is not ok.

Now onto your "core" items. Im fine with listing lotus crown, as I even build that on Hel mid due to how good it is on her, but stating book of thoth and cdr boots are core is just not the case. You do need MP5/mana sustain and CDR on Hel yes, but I can think of other sources like Tier 2 Doom Orb and Travellers shoes. But the items are fine choices on her themselves. Rod of Asclepius is definitely not core, but it's a decent choice. Chronos' pendant is the only item I would consider core on her really.

I have a problem with you listing breastplate when you already have 30% CDR in your listed build, and the CDR cap is 40%.

Also Jade Emperor's Crown should not be listed, it's inferior to Sovereignty.
