Herro, this is my Weaver guide O_o Weaver is a very fun hero, whose primary role is to farm early game, get his core, and carry. He is exceptional at weaving in and out of battle, using Shukuchi and Time Lapse, and dishing out great bursts of damage with a damage-stacked Geminate. This guide will cover the two main builds for Weaver- the Radiance build and the Linkens build. Both have their advantages and disadvantages- the main ones being that the Radiance build is pretty hard to farm up and is pretty risky if you can't stay alive, and the Linkens build lacks the damage output of the Radiance build but offers superb stats, regen, and the spell block.
This is where I'll give my explanations of Weaver's abilities, and how to use them. For detailed numbers, go here
-The Swarm is your AoE ability with tons of utility. It gives vision in a huge area, and creates little babies to eat away your enemy's armor, increased theirs, yours, and your teammate's damage on potentially the entire enemy team, if well-placed. We max this second.
-Shukuchi is your bread and butter, it's what makes Weaver the Weaver, it allows him to weave in and out of combat, while also doing a bit of damage. Max move speed is also helpful with chasing. Oh, and it only leaves you visible 2 seconds at a time at max level. Synergies well with Radiance. This is maxed first.
-Geminate Attack is your steroid, it is what allows you to carry, cause honestly your other abilities' damage is negligible. It's a very simple ability, giving you a pseudo crit every 2.5 seconds! That's pretty much every time you come out of Shukuchi late game, so your damage is pretty much doubled. This is maxed last.
-Time Lapse is your ultimate, which doubles as your "oh ****" button. This has a pretty short cooldown at all levels, allowing you to use it pretty much every time you get in deep trouble. Smart usage of this is key to playing Weaver- if you use it too early you will miss it when you really need it, and may even save the enemy. You might also use it too late, and be ported even closer to your enemies, when you want to the least. Memory is the most important thing when playing Weaver to his fullest- always know where you were and what your hp/mana were at ~5 seconds ago in a battle. Surprisingly, this is easy to screw up.
Here I'll cover the two main builds for Weaver- Radiance and Linkens
This is all I got so far... I spent about an hour and a half just typing this up off my head x_x If you have suggestions, gimme. I'll be adding a general gameplay section soon, about your role and what to do. I may even add a "early, mid, late game" phase type thing.. I dunno. If you guys would like anything added, let me know, like a good partners/worst enemies section, picking your lane, FaQ, stuff like that. Enjoy :3
