Tips & Tricks

1. Practice Death And Decay (Q) – if you do not hit anything with it, it will fail. Minions, mercenary, hero, building.

2. Death And Decay (Q) is good for wave clear – just hit them from the sides to maximize potential.

3. You can use Frost Nova (W) to zone people, you don’t even have to hit them but it will make them stay away for a bit.

4. Combo Frost Nova (W) and Shadow Fissure (R)

5. Make sure to position yourself as far away from the enemy team, dive heroes are your counter.

6. Make sure to stack up your Trait Quest ASAP. Join fights, objectives to speed it up.

7. Frost Nova has a small delay before exploding, have it in mind when aiming for targets in center to become rooted.

8. Practice landing Chains Of Kel’Thuzad in combo with Frost Nova and Shadow Fissure

9. Chains of Kel Thuzad only bind to heroes or enemy buildings, using it in lane makes no sense.

10. You have 4 seconds to reactivate Chains, don’t use it immediately, wait for the moment.

11. Use Chains as a zoning tool to make enemies run away from their team for next 4 seconds.
