HERO: Vale Windtalker. ROLE: Mage
HERO SPECIALTY: (Crowd Control/Poke) AOE, Burst Dmg, strong laning, efficient on teamfight, lacks mobility.
SKILLS AND TIPS
When Vale reaches Lvl 4/6/8, he can enhance one of his skills and each skill can be enhanced once only.
(example: After reach lvl 4, you can enhance JUST ONE skill and you can’t change it) (lvl 6, you are able to enhance another skill) (and the last lvl 8, you are able to enhance the last skill available.) PS: BUT you can’t add 2 or 3 enhances in the same skill and you can’t change it for another effect!
Tip 1-Combine build items for speed
Vale has no escapable skills, but this passive provides him to get speed! Also, build items that increase his movement speed, will be very useful for him.
1st skill Wind Blade
This is an AoE skill
Tip 1-Make a surprise attack
Stop enemy first before using this skill to increase the hit rate, otherwise you may fail the attack. 1. always use it after using an CC skill (Ps: 2nd skill can slow enemies, or You can upgrade it to knock up enemies too
Or Ultimate skill, you can upgrade it to CC enemies)
2. use 1st skill in a brush to make a surprise attack!
3. or use it on enemies that need to stay in a certain place to deal dmg (Like Pharsa, marksmans like Layla etc.)
TIP 2-Analyze the enemy mobility
WARNING! be careful on using 1st skill on enemies with HIGH Mobility like: Lancelot, Gusion, Harith…you may fail the attack.
Important: if you use this skill in a certain area, you will have more possibilities to hit enemies!
TIP 3-The Best item for 1st Skill Ice Queen Wand
This item slows enemies after hitting them with skills, will be very useful to increase this skill hit rate.
2nd Skill Windblow
This is an CC skill
Vale sends a whirlwind forward. Dealing Magic Dmg and slows enemies down by 40%.
TIP 1-For Chasing/escaping
This skill will be useful if an enemy is trying to escape.
Vale has no efficient escapable skills, but this skill may help you to slow them or knock them up.
TIP 2- stop-on-hit effect
If you add an stop on hit effect, this skill may be useful to launch it into an enemy turret to damage enemies.
Combine this upgrade with an CC skill (CC ally’s skills or Ulti ) to increase this hit rate. (combos below)
TIP 3- knock-up effect
If you upgrade 2nd skill to knock up enemies, this may help you to increase Ultimate Hit Rate. (combos below)
3rd Ultimate Skill Windstorm
This skill deals Burst Dmg
Vale summons a windstorm in a designated area. After 1.5 seconds, the windstorm will explode, dealing Magic Dmg.
Also, Ultimate “Damage increased” effect will decrease the enemy Magical Defense when the windstorm explodes.
TIP 1-Best Items for Ultimate
Ulti has a strong burst damage even If you upgrade it to increase the damage effect. The Lighting Truncheon and Holy Cristal will increases a Higher amount of magic dmg to the enemies. Combine them with Divine Glaive to deal high magic Penetration on enemies with strong Magic Defense. (PS: I highly recommend add an CC effect on Ulti and combine these items to obtain a balance effects of CC and Burst dmg)
TIP 2- Increase Damage effect
This skill has a strong burst dmg but if you upgrade it to increase the damage, it will deal an explosive dmg!
TIP 3- CC effect
This will allow you to CC enemies nearby! Is perfect for a teamfight or gank!
Use this combo to make a surprise attack, Ambush or if you want to GANK or Teamfight!
If you want to get the CC on 2nd skill instead Ultimate, will be useful to deal more burst dmg on Ulti. 2nd skill will slow enemies by 60%! to increase Ulti and 1st skill hit rate.
If your allies don’t have enough CC, you can use this combo to CC enemies for a long period of time.
To get CC, damage and long area damage. 3 different effects will be very useful on battle!
these items will work very well on Vale too:
