This guide has not yet been updated for the current season. Please keep this in mind while reading. You can see the most recently updated guides on the browse guides page
When I first wrote this guide I have been playing this game for only 2 months now that I have some more experience about I thought it was time to update it. One more reason that I had to update it was that in the latest patch they made some changes to some items and I thought that it would be nice to update my guide since I too have changed my play style with Ymir. I am writing this guide for the starters mainly I don't think experienced players will find it much of help since Ymir it is not so difficult to master. So let's get started.
Well Ymir can be played as a full tank or ap tank.
[*] As full tank it is good to get him some hp as fast a u can it helps a lot. Thats why after the boots and the lvl 1 breastplate-of-valor. I go straight for
gauntlet of thebes. When i have it finished I usually buy breastplate of valor lvl 2 and then I go for stone of gaia cause it helps a lot with the protection it offers and the HP/MP regen. Then I maximise breastplate of valor and I go for midgardian mail or
magis blessing depending on the enemies.
[*] If u decide to play ap tank then buy the same boots and
warlocks-sash lvl 1 for some mana,hp and magic power(Some might say why not
gem-of-isolation,well since u only have 2 skills that damage target and 1 of them is your ulti,and also u have 2 big slows of your own it wouldn't make much difference if bought it or not.Plus you need HP after all you are the tank and sash helps you more than the gem).As soon as u maximise them go for spear-of-the-magus. Well after that buy wall-of-absolution and void-stone. Finally the last items depends on what you want to emphasize TANK or more POWER or maybe more PENETRATION.It is up to you to decide what suit best in the situation.
I suggest as skill sequence:
[*] FROST BREATH so u can land the GLACIAL STRIKE much easier thats a perfect way to harass in early game especially squishy gods such as zeus,agni,artemis etc.But be careful about your mana though.
[*] If u are about to engage for a kill : Start again with FROST BREATH then GLACIAL STRIKE and immediately after that
ICE WALL right in front of them and start your ulti. It is neccesary to be very close to them when u create the wall so when u will start your ulti they will be in the centerand the only way to escape from it is by jumping or rushing out of it with a skill.
(Dont forget u must not move after u activate ur ulti or it will stop it is channeling.
If u go to engage them from behind do the same with one diffirencecreate the wall in front of so they wont be able to go back and then ULTI......
[*] If u chase an enemy and he is out of range of your stun try to block his way with ice wall this might slow him down enough so u can stun him next and kill him
The good thing about Ymir is his great CC either tanky or ap his stun of 2.5, his slows can annihilate the enemy team and dont forget the ice wall which is an excellent tool for blocking the way of enemies who escape or chasing you or another teamate for the kill. Ice wall works very well in jungle where all routes are kinda narrow, careful though not to block your team's road, meaaning that u might trap a teammate behind a wall with enemies chasing him or let an enemy escape by blocking your team's way. So try to use the wall when u can see that u will block the enemy.
If you read the guide, take some of your time and leave a comment below I really want to know your impressions about it. I might update it again in the future and add some icons for the items (when I learn how :P) cause it looks too boring with only words.
