Tips & Tricks
Chou mixes durable defensive stats with his offensive capabilities to pose a serious threat to enemies.
His ability to maneuver around the battlefield with multiple dashes and crowd control immunity allows him to easily dodge enemy skill shots, gap close, and wreak havoc.
As a fighter, Chou is able to take damage as well as dish it out. However, he’s not the best tank nor the best damage dealer. Rather than focusing on tanking damage or bursting enemies down, focus on maintaining the perfect balance of offense and defense, mixing defensive items like Warrior Boots with offensive items like Blade of Despair.
Because of his status as a fighter, Chou can enjoy flexible item builds that you can tailor to each game. Is your ally marksman doing amazing and can easily win the game if he stays alive? Build more defensively to get into the thick of battle, and tank damage that might otherwise kill the fragile marksman. Teammates unable to kill anything? Use your superior mobility to avoid damage and build more offensively!
Use Chou’s mobility spells to both inflict damage and avoid it. Chou’s crowd control effects built into his kit allow him to dash into enemies and lock down high priority targets. Shunpo allows him to do this without fear of being CC’ed himself.
Shunpo into the enemies that you are looking to kill and then use Jeet Kune Do to consecutively punch them, dealing damage and lastly making them airborne. This will reset the cooldown of Shunpo in the event that the enemy has CC to use on you, or can be used to catch up to them as they flee.
Chou’s ultimate, The Way of the Dragon can be used offensively and defensively as the situation demands. Use it to kick an enemy tank to their backline, rendering them useless and leaving their allies unprotected. Or use it to kick a high priority target away, isolating them and comboing them into submission.
Chou benefits most from the Assassin emblem page, with upgrades in Agility and Invasion giving him added speed and physical penetration. The increased movement speed helps him proc his passive faster, boosting his overall damage output.
The Bounty Hunter talent grants extra gold for kills and is always a smart choice. High and Dry can also be used when your playstyle is aggressive, seeking out lone enemy targets and dueling them. Killing Spree can also work for Chou, giving him some sustain on enemy kills and boosting his speed, allowing him to proc his passive faster and mow down enemies.
