Tips & Tricks
Faramis is a powerful alchemist, capable of bringing his allies back from the dead and allowing them to continue to fight for a short time. His ability to zoom around the battlefield and pull enemies around with him can help his allies focus priority targets, and his ultimate ability can be a fail-safe that helps his allies push objectives — even in death.
As a support, Faramis needs his team with him and capitalizing on the plays he sets up. Coordinate and work with your team, letting them know your game plan and engaging together.
Game sense and awareness will be key to using Faramis’ resurrection properly. It can change close battles into victories for your team, even in death, when triggered at the right time.
As a support, Faramis needs his mask so that he can roam and help allies without falling behind in gold and experience. Shadow Mask is a good choice for games when you coordinate with allies to ambush and sneak up on enemies. Courage Mask is another solid choice, especially in tense team fights, when the stat boosts it provides can make messy fights much more easily cleaned up.
Rapid Boots enable Faramis to zip around the battlefield even faster, allowing him to target high priority enemies with his Stampede and get out, pulling them with him.
Fleeting Time is a key item for Faramis, reducing his ultimate cooldown and allowing him to resurrect and keep his team fighting more often.
After that, you can build situationally for what your team needs. Defensive shield items like Oracle and Immortality work well for Faramis, allowing him to initiate fights with his Stampede and safely get out.
Shadow Stampede allows Faramis to make plays for his allies when used properly. Marking high priority enemies and escaping will allow Faramis to pull those enemies in with him, dragging them out of position and allowing his allies to more easily focus them. Try to keep in mind who you’re marking — up close and personal fighters like melee tanks will probably benefit from being pulled into your team. Don’t give the enemies the upper hand accidentally!
Ghost Bursters adds some AoE Damage to Faramis, allowing him to poke enemies and have the damage bounce around.
Faramis’ ultimate ability, Cult Altar, allows him to resurrect his teammates for ten seconds. This can be absolutely devastating to enemy teams, especially when fights are drawn out and close. Encourage your team to fight around objectives, that way even if they die, they can push the objective towers in death. After their resurrection, they will still die, so there’s literally nothing to lose from dying around a tower. Resurrected allies can then continue to fight, cleaning up enemies and then pushing the objective with the remainder of their time spent resurrected.
Faramis benefits most from the Support emblem page, with upgrades in Agility and Recovery helping him move around more quickly and regenerating health and mana more steadily.
Focusing Mark is a perfect talent for Faramis. He can drag enemies into his allies, marking them and enabling allies to take them out even more quickly with the Focusing Mark damage boost.
