The guide is still in development, it will be updated asap. If you have any suggestions, comment it in the discussions, it'll be added in the guide if useful.
Warning!!!: You should've known the basics of the game (e.g. moving, attacking, map awareness, etc.) to make this work. I don't have the time to explain why the enemy hero in your lane is always missing.
Hello, welcome to my brief guide on how to play Io. I am a support player who is spending the whole game buying wards. I'm not good at playing Io but I'm good at telling a teammate what to do.
Io the Wisp is a ranged strength hero who works best as part of a communicative team. With its support-oriented skill set, Io is able to share its strength through Tether and Overcharge, harass enemy heroes out of the lane with Spirits, and materialize itself and an ally anywhere on the map with Relocate. Gank enemy heroes, push undefended lanes, save teammates from deep within enemy territory—the possibilities are endless, and Io features one of the highest skill ceilings in the game.
You should buy the items that would benefit your lane carry, since you're a long-ranged support, you don't have to worry to die a lot in the early game.
Support items (must-buy)
As a healing support, consumable items is good for you and for your hard or mid carry.
Io's golden rule: Don't use consumable items directly your carry (e.g. clarity, salve, mango), instead use overcharge (if you're not damaged at all), tether your carry, and use it to yourself.
