Official Hero Spotlight:

Koshka seems pretty strong right now. :koshka: Is anyone playing her pretty regularly? I’d be interested to know what the good builds are these days - if people definitely starting :vgitem_t2_stormguardbanner:, or going :vgitem_t1_crystalbit: :vgitem_t1_crystalbit:

First things first, Did you change her pfp because it looks nicer.

Second, Ill only build :vgitem_t2_stormguardbanner: when Im going down the :vgitem_stormcrown: :vgitem_aftershock: build thats more bursty.

If I feel like I can snowball the game with a enemy comp having a fault with itself, I would go a more crystal heavy build and start off with two crystal bits.

I might add some info to the wiki but if I have time.

Honestly, my build doesn’t differ much from the recommended. I usually complete my :vgitem_stormcrown: as it helps in jungle clear, then :vgitem_aftershock: and :vgitem_pulseweave: are the core essentials. The rest of the item depends upon the situation in the match.
Nowadays, you don’t get as much movement speed as you used too, back in the old days. But still a good pick against squishies.
