Introduction

This is my first guide ever so hope you like it and leave suggestions.
Hopefully this guide will help you get an understanding of Lycan and be able to use him effectively.

Pros / Cons

Pros
- Very good farming
- jungle effectively
- very high damage mid/late game when build is finished
- Good chase and Escape in Wolf form
- Ability to Rosh early
- you can use your wolfs to scout out runes or if your unsure they are going to attempt a gank
Cons
- mana problems early
- killing is hard until level 6
- Item dependent

Items

Reasoning behind item build
well vlads and treads is the obvious ones vlads for the life steal and treads for the extra speed health and damage

The main reasoning behind getting a Crystalsys / Daedlus over a Skull basher and abyssal blade is the fact that is gives you better crits by about 300 i have tested both the abyssal and dadelus with just the build of treads vlads and bkb as the other items dadelus gives you a lot better dps because you do 800-ish crits while in wolf mode but also out of it if you run out of time in a team fight

Bkb because getting stunned and disabled is a pain in the *** so get a bkb and go get em

you can get a heart if you want to be just that bit tankier

Desolater is good if you have your build and want moar damage

Summary

I made this guide because Lycan is one of my favorite heroes Hope you enjoyed this quick guide and hope it helps you carry your team to Victory
