Gear Guide

 

Assassin Build – Burst

 

Build Information :

At the beginning of the game, your main focus is to complete a level 2 jungle weapon “Nimble Blade”, it’s allows you to jungling faster, and each time you killed a jungle monster, you will get a stack (maximum 10) of bonus attack.

Because Alucard are a melee hero, he need a durability early game. “Warrior Boots” is the best choice for Alucard.

The second item to be finished is “Haas’s Claws”, the lifesteal of the “Haas’s Claws” allows Alucard to regen himself in the middle of the battle or jungling.

The next item is “Berserker’s Fury”. This item will give Alucard 65 Physical Attack, 25% Critical Chance, and 40% Critical Damage. Which boost Alucard’s physical attack a lot.

For the next item, we will have “Endless Battle”. This is the most vital item for Alucard. Beside the attributes of this item are good, the passive of this item allows Alucard to deal 70% physical attack  as true damage each time he is using his abilities. Combined with “Haas’s Claw” and “Berserker’s Fury”, Alucard can deals ton of damage to entire enemy team.

The next item is “Malefic Roar” which give Alucard 40% Physical Penetration. This item will be useful at late game, especially if you are fighting a tank with your teammates.

For the last item, there is 2 options. That is “Wings of The Apocalypse Queen” or “Blade of Despair”. If you are prefer more defense or durability, “Wing of The Apocalypse Queen” are the best choice. But because this build is a burst damage build, I recommend you to use “Blade of Despair” which give you 170 physical attack and 10% attack speed. And this item allow you to deals 10% extra damage to an enemy in any abnormal state (Stunned, airborne, transformed, disabled).

Battle Spells


 

Additional Information :

Alucard is a “Hard Carry”, which mean he is not very strong on early game. But he will become very deadly on late game, especially if all of his core items are ready. Because of this reasons, Alucard is really depends on jungling and farming. “Retribution” is far the best choice for Alucard, combined with jungling weapon “Nimble Blade”, Alucard can farm really fast and time efficient.

 

 

 

 

Additional Information :

One of Alucard’s Speciality is “Crowd Controlling”, But his “Crowd Controlling” ability is considered as “Damage-Based Crowd Controlling” which means, his skill is just focused on damaging enemy in group and none of them can disable or locking enemy. Because of this reason, Alucard can be a worst initiator, especially if the enemy has many disable like stun, silence, he will knocked out very quickly. “Petrify” probably the best choice to minimize this weakness. Combined with 1st skill, Alucard can be a good initiator and of course with stun. But the weakness of this battle spell is it’s cooldown, which is relatively very long to be used again. Beside that, Alucard farming also will be slowed.

Note :

Both recommended battle spells have their own advantages and disadvantages. Choose one of the battle spell wisely.

If you are playing ranked. Always observe the composition of the opposing team. Then, decide what battle spells that suit the condition.
