Tips & Tricks
Selena combines ranged poke moves in her Elven Form with deadly melee assassin moves in Abyssal Form, giving her a unique playstyle that gives her flexibility in choosing her targets.
As an assassin, she excels early in the game, able to make picks that give her team an advantage and allows them to push objectives. As the game progresses, her ability to burst down targets gets harder, especially after the enemy team buys defensive items. However, thanks to her ranged Elven form, she’s still able to help her team by peeling for carries and poking enemies down and controlling them.
Selena is typically played in the jungle, which gives her the flexibility to farm camps for experience while keeping an eye on the lanes, ganking enemies when necessary and helping her teammates through kills of out of position targets.
For her jungle item, as a mage assassin, the Star Shard benefits Selena the most. Demon Shoes keep her mana regeneration flowing, helpful for her as she switches freely between Abyssal and Eleven forms, resetting her cooldowns in the process.
Calamity Reaper and Holy Crystal are powerful items that give Selena a burst of magic power, allowing her to jump on targets and eliminate them quickly.
Late game, items like Immortality or Winter Truncheon can help her stay alive when facing fellow assassins or burst mages and marksmen.
Despite having two forms and new abilities with each of them, Selena’s abilities flow naturally with her play style.
Elven Form gives her ranged moves perfect for initiating ganks and crowd controlling enemies from afar. Once that’s been accomplished, she can switch to Abyssal Form to gain a burst of movement speed and damage in her melee form, making it much more straightforward to close the gap and jump on her target.
Abyssal Traps can be used directly on enemies or lined up with Selena’s Abyssal Arrow to apply Abyssal Marks to the target. Making sure the target you’re aiming to kill has Abyssal Marks on them is crucial in optimizing Selena’s damage output.
The stun on Abyssal Arrow lengthens by how far the arrow travels, and it will consume Abyssal Marks as it goes. You can use this to get an easy Abyssal Mark on an enemy you’re looking to kill. Position the Abyssal Trap in front of you and then line up the Arrow to pass through the mark and hit your target. The arrow will consume the mark and apply it to the enemy you stunned.
Then, you can switch to Abyssal Form, speeding up and jumping on the target. Use Garrote to engage; its cooldown resets when you jump on a target and consume the Abyssal Mark. This can help you apply further burst damage by reusing the move (or hold on to it to gain extra mobility if the target is especially mobile and can get away from your initial burst.)
If the target isn’t dead from the stun and Garotte damage, activate Soul Eater to enhance your basic attacks and give you a shield to help you sustain any enemy retaliation. If you need to make a quick getaway, switch back to Elven form for a burst of movement speed, resetting your cooldowns and allowing you to quickly fire an Abyssal Arrow for a brief stun as you make your getaway.
With magic damage in her kit, Selena benefits most from the Mage Emblem page.
Talent points in Agility give her more movement speed, allowing her to chase targets more easily with her passive speed burst. Observation gives her magic penetration, allowing her to burst through enemy defenses, helping her stay relevant throughout the game.
Magic Worship grants Selena higher damage output when bursting enemies, perfect for her assassin playstyle.
