Ymir Guide: The Walking Popsicle (Conquest In-Depth) (Support Guide)

Hey there, welcome to my guide to playing Ymir, Father of the Frost Giants and proud member of the Norse pantheon. My name is Jeffrey and my IGN is Salad. In this guide I will share with you the methods of playing Ymir effectively starting with support, edging into Solo and finally working our way to Jungle.

Looking to play some games with me? Just send me a friend request or join our clan ESNCE (Essence Gaming). We're a growing community that's always looking for fun people of all skill levels.

If you downvote or have any critiques on this guide PLEASE leave a comment below so I can constantly do things to make this guide better, and perhaps earn your favor back! :)

Also if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask me either on this guide's comments section (I CHECK IT DAILY!). Or send me a message in game and I'll be more than happy to help you. I didn't write this guide just to abandon it and let people that might be confused try to decipher some of what I write.

Patch Updates

This section will be used to post any changes Hirez makes to Ymir as new patches are released. Currently since this is a new guide there are no new changes to report

About Ymir

Ymir is a strong Guardian with a kit that allows him to not only Peel, Zone and apply Crowd Control (CC) but also dish out a pretty significant amount of damage over all.

When push comes to shove Ymir is a god that excels at using the map as a form of CC with the use of Ice Wall to create dead ends, blocking enemies from objectives anf isolating them from the safety of their team.

One of the things that makes Ymir such a threat is his easily confirmable Hard CC damage combo with Frost Breath and Glacial Strike plus his potential ability to box and burst thanks to his passive, Frostbite, he also currently has the second strongest ultimate in the game when it comes to raw damage and scaling (Bested only by Anubis)

General Stats You Should Be Searching For on Him:

- Movement Speed
- Penetration
- Protections and Health
- Cooldown % Reduction


- High Damage/Health
- Strong Zone
- Great Peel
- Great lane bully
- Great Setup
- Good Self/Team Disengage
- Very low mobility
- Low range
- Can block himself and his teammates
- Easily Counterpicked
- Requires Blink to close distance

Warding Map

It is important to note that most of the low priority wards will become medium to high priority depending on how ahead or behind you are in the game.

There are a few warding spots that I didn't really touch on because they are generally luxury or starting wards which you usually only place once. These are at the enemy's Speed and Damage camp. But even then you may want to ward one of the enemy's entrances into the center midlane.

Coming Soon.


11/17/2016 - Minor spelling changes.
12/06/2016 - Insignificant wording edits, added in that Sprint cleanses and provides slow immunity. I'll get around to finishing segments and writing the Jungle/Solo sections in a while.
12/25/2016 - Begun writing/coding the jungling section, still have a lot of work to do.
