NippleXO's Guide to Crystal Maiden
July 23, 2012
Crystal Maiden or CM is mostly played as a support. Some people might even Play her as a semi- carry for Lols.but this guide is for full on support nothing else.
Your job is:
A COMPLETE WARD *****!!(meaning constant warding)
Stack and pull as much as possible carry needs farm and solo exp as well
Don't take farm from carry
Hey NippleXO why don't you put stats on ULT??
Well this is personal preference, I personally don't like using her ULT because you stay still and stand there like a sitting duck. So why not just put stats so you can increase your survivability.why not have more survivability and mana so you can use your skills more??
Starting items are pretty standard for support either courier or wards or both by substituting some items.
I put 3 types of boots because they are all important for different things so you have to choose:
Good movement speed
PHASE SKILL UNIT WALK
GREAT MOVEMENT SPEED
Which boots do you choose?
Arcanes if no one else has one in your team
Phase if some one has arcanes or you want the unit walk
Tranquil boots if you want cheep way to have hp regen armor and a healing active skill.
WARDS WARDS WARDS!!!!
Your a CM you don't need items I can't stand pubs who play cm and don't support "number one excuse I bought courier and a set of wards " that is nothing you are supposed to constantly give you team vision.
Items you should go for after boots should be Mek for heal or pipe if situational.
Then go for a force staff for escape item or even initiation. If you want you can get loathars(shadow blade)
Late should be Sheeps stick to disable a targe that needs to be disabled and Shias to slow right clickers. You can even go heavens halberd
Pros cons stay away for
HIGH DAMAGE ULT EARLY
MANA ISSUES EAROY GAME
SLOW ATTACK SPEED (animation is horrible)
IT SUCKS BUT YOH SHOULD NOT BE GETTING FARM FROM LANE CREEPS BUT FROM PULLED NEUTRALS
STAY AWAY FROM
HEROES WITH HEAVY NUKES
AND ANYTHING THAT SILENCES YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE SO SPELL DEPENDENT
Farewell!! Have Fun!!!
