Key Strategy

Key strategic elements to consider when playing Abaddon

  • Apply Aphotic Shield pre-emptively on yourself as you are coming to lane after rune fight. Apply another as the previous one expires to inflict great AoE damage. Pull afterwards.
  • Play ahead of the Core you are supporting to absorb damage and trade regen.
  • Salve or clarity won`t be canceled while you have Apothic Shield on.
  • If someone applies a break effect on you, you will have to trigger Borrowed Time manually.
  • If you got disabled along with your teammate you can pop Borrowed Time to remove stun off yourself and then apply Aphotic Shield on a stunned ally to free him as well.
  • Constantly look at your teammates to heal or hard dispel them.
  • Silences and heal reductions are a big problems for Abaddon. Avoid being hit by those or itemize against them.
  • With Aghanim`s Scepter, you will need to activate your Ultimate manually, while most of the damage is being inflicted on your teammates.
