Hey guys! Mah name is FlyKoreanBoi or FKB for short! This is my first guide and it is for Rubick! Rubick is a hero that can adapt to almost every situation if played the right way and do things at the right time.
Taking a look at his first 3 skills, he seems very versatile. He has a nuke and a stun, so he is very capable of ganking.
-GREAT mid laner!
-Can adapt to many situations due to his Spell Steal.
-Lots of items go great with this guy!
-Has a nice stun that scales great into late game!
-A magic resistance passive! (Null Field)
-Item independent early to mid game
-Needs to level to gank efficiently.
-Needs to have items to scale into late game.
-Squishy early game!
Rubick has frands from the enemy team because he can steal their spells and use them against them! such as...
- Sand King
- Queen of Pain
- Doom Bringer
- Night Stalker
When you choose Rubick the first skill you should pop a level into should be Telekinesis for
defensive purposes and maybe a first blood.
But after this you should max Fade Bolt at the level 7.
After maxing out Fade Bolt you should max out Telekinesis. Telekinesis is such a
great skill because you can fling them in the air while attacking them and choose the location
of where they land.
You should also level your ultimate at your standard levels of 6, 11, and
And then last but not least level your passive Null Field last!
For starters get your basic health items which are Tangoes and Salves and then get 3 iron wood branches.
Assuming your playing mid solo you should build those iron branches to a Magic Wand! You should also get a fast bottle and then getting Arcane boots because Rubick needs to be spamming them spells!
For the mid game you should get a force staff and adding a blink dagger on top of that which will make you a difficult hero to kill! You don't want to die because upon death you will lose your stolen skills. You thug!
For the late game you should buy a Eul's Scepter, Scythe of Vyse (aka Sheep Stick), and a Mekansm!
For late game you should add a Shiva's Gaurd for tankiness, damage, and good initiation punch!
A ghost scepter could stop them pesky right clickers!
Imagine your up against a mid hero who can disable you, nuke you, reduce your damage, and steal your best skill. Sounds pretty bad right? Well as Rubick you need to take advantage of these things that you have and use them!
Your cooldown of Telekinesis and Fade Bolt are pretty low so spam them along with your arcane boots! Rubick needs to use Fade Bolt for pushing when appropriate and Telekinesis for aiding you for any rune chase you may encounter!
But keep in mind that even thought he has all these wonderful magical things you have to note that he is a squishy hero. To counter this you need to play smart and don't put yourself in such bad situations! Rubick is hero that can snowball relatively well and one factor is his spell steal!
In mid to late game team fights your goal is pretty obvious! Steal the best spell from someone that has it! And of course you use it! But the other team knows you are stealing your spells so you should hang back and then come in like a thug at the right time! But some Rubick players have tunnel vision when they are trying to get such a great spell that they usually die in the process. But be wary! The enemy can click on you and see what spells you have stolen!
This is certainly not the best guide but is it any good? Leave a rating and comment! I'm open to constructive criticism! Maybe more will come? I don't really know my school just started... But anyway! HAVE FUN OUT THERE!
