Yun Zhao is a son of the Great Dragon, sworn to roam from world to world assisting wise rulers by the Dragon’s decree. Whenever a new king is in need of strength, Yun Zhao traverses space and time to remove all obstacles and enemies before the king using spear fighting techniques endowed upon him by the Great Dragon.
Passive – Every 6s, the next basic attack will combo hit the target in front of him multiple times, dealing a total of 1.8 times the basic physical attack. Hitting enemies with a basic attack will reduce cooldown time for this ability 0.5s.
1st Skill – Lifts an enemy over his back, dealing 300/330/360/390/420/450 physical damage and lowering the target’s armor 10/10/10/10/10/10 for 2/2/2/2/2/2s.
2nd Skill – Charges the target, dealing 260/285/310/335/360/385 physical damage and lowering the target’s movement speed 30%/30%/30%/30%/30%/30% for 1/1/1/1/1/1s, also immediately making a basic attack. Casting distance for this ability will increase with ability level.
3rd Skill – Increases the hero’s movement speed 30%/40%/50% and attack speed 45%/60%/75%, and makes the hero immune to slow down effects. Lasts 6/7/8s. Can release hero from imprisoning effect when cast.
Great skill for roaming around the map to push.
You may use any of the two emblems above.
You can use Purify or Weaken.
After skill is released it will immediately remove all negative effects and grants immunity from disables for 1s and increase hero’s movement speed by 30%.
You are prone to disable because of your 2nd skill. Using Purify can remove those negative buffs.
Decreases a specified hero’s movement speed by 70%, physical attack and magic power by 50%. Lasts 3 seconds.
Good when for chasing and initiating a gank. Damage from marksman heroes will be halved for 3 seconds giving you enough time to deal out your skills and basic attacks.
You may be wondering why is there a defense item if this build is pure damage.
Unique Passive-Brute Force: Attacking an enemy will increase one’s capabilities, increasing movement speed 2% and physical attack 3%. This effect lasts 4s and can stack up to 4 times.
What this means is that every time you attack your physical attack and movement speed increases. Not bad if you think about the extra +770 HP and +45 Armor. This item still gives you damage despite being a defensive gear.
During the early game you will need to rely solely on your skills and proper positioning. Use your first skill to position the enemy near the tower for a sure kill. The basic combo is using your 2nd skill to get in position near your enemy then use your 1st skill to place them behind you. A hero with a teleport or Flicker ability can escape from you. If this is the case you can try it in reverse.
When you reach mid game you should have lifesteal already and the shoes. You can easily jungle by now. Use your 3rd skill to push and damage towers. You can now gank with your teammate, preferably with a disable. Marksman and mage heroes can go down easily if you and your teammate can time it perfectly. Acquiring the 3rd item gives you a decent damage against fighters. The 4th item will give you survivability against the enemies’ marksman.
During this stage you should be doing your attacks as a team. Once your tank engages with the enemy quickly target a marksman or mage to pull it right in your teammates location for a quick kill. Your damage is good enough to go one on one with a marksman or mage at this stage especially if you have Weaken ability.
- Turn on the Hero Lock Mode feature in your settings. This enables you to target specific heroes when you jump or pull them out with your 1st skill.
- Franco’s hook plus your 1st skill is an amazing combo. Just stay behind Franco and once he catches someone with his hook use the 1st skill to move the enemy near the tower or near your teammates for the kill.
- Roam around the map to destroy towers. Your 3rd skill gives you incredible movement speed as well as attack speed for taking down towers.
- Mana is not a problem with Yun Zhao. You don’t need to purchase a Magic Necklace in the early part of the game.
