Leo Playstyle Tips

Be A Triple Threat! Maximzing Leo’s A potential

Leo’s A works very similarly to that of Joule’s B in regard to the fact that it appears to have no impact/it resets Leo’s basic attack. This gives way to some powerful AoE dmg, wave clear, and a nasty, in-your-face, melee combo. Basic attack the enemy, immediately cast your A, and basic attack the enemy right after. You’ll have three very swift swings of the sword, even early game before building up your attack speed.

Update 4.4 - but I can’t imagine this mechanic will be altered by other updates.

Official Hero Spotlight:

I added a fun mechanic that I noticed when playing with Leo a few matches yesterday. I hope it helps folks improve and continue to slaughter with Leo!


I still haven’t gotten a chance to use Leo yet - he’s banned pretty often. What are the good builds, in the chance he’s available?

To me, probably go like Serpents’ Mask, Tension Bow or Bonesaw, Breaking Point, Pulseweave, Journey Boots and a last situational item
