I was experimenting some combos in practice mode, and I found out about these hidden tricks. If someone already discovered and shared these, RIP time and effort.
#1 - Instant-cast Splashdown (B) without consuming a pool
If you time it right, you can instantly cast her B right after the pool shows up on your A. Your A’s pool somehow does not get consumed. I find more success if I am in (or really close) to the middle of my A when I cast B. (Using her A to empower her C without consuming the pool works as well.)
“How would this be helpful?”
It’s super helpful in certain scenarios where you desperately need to speed your teammate (or slow your enemy) AND cast an empowered Waterwall © without comprimising your position. We all know how bad unempowered Waterwalls are.
#2 - Empowered abilties OUTSIDE your pools
This seems to work better if you tap ahead of your pool, and then cast an ability. Splashdown’s pool has a BIG window. Check the video below. This will maximize your “range” when you chase or disengage an enemy.
Lorelai’s “max instant cast range” (IDK if it can go further than that)
