Chernobog Guide

Chernobog is a late game powerhouse ADC who, if played correctly, can take over and control the outcome of matches. Early on, focus on safely farming in the duo lane. Last hit minions to build your stacks and gain bonus gold from your passive. Avoid risky engages until you have your 1 and 2 abilities maxed, allowing you to clear wave and push opponents under tower to find ganks.

For builds, start with Hunter’s Blessing and either Transcendence for mana and cooldown reduction or Devourer’s Gauntlet for life steal. Your core items are Warrior Tabi, Asi, Qin’s Sais, and The Executioner. This provides power, penetration, attack speed, and sustain.

Chernobog excels in the duo lane carry role. He synergizes well with aggressive supports who can lock down kills, such as Ares, Xing Tian, or Sobek. Chernobog can follow up their engagement with his 1 for massive damage. In team fights, remain behind your front line. Look to ult in if your mid or jungle get a pick. Your 3 gives an escape if needed.

Chernobog works in many team comps. He provides steady damage for late game, objective secure, and structure destruction. Draft him when needing a safe ADC with a global ultimate. His lack of crowd control means relying on teammates to setup kills, so pair with others who can lockdown enemies.

Chernobog’s 1, Cry of the Dead, is your main clear and damage. Use it on wave or fire through walls to check objectives. His 2, Vicious Barrage, shreds objectives and structures. Activate your 2 and 3 together for maximum attack speed, then melt the Gold Fury or towers.

His 3, Into Darkness, provides mobility and stealth. Use it to juke enemies, escape over walls, or get in position to ult. His ult, Living Nightmare, allows global rotation. Look for low health enemies to kill secure or dive the backline. You can also use it to quickly contest the Gold Fury or Fire Giant.

As Chernobog, focus objectives, push lanes, and provide steady damage in fights. Early on, farm safely with your support. Help clear wave but avoid risky fights. Once online, rotate with your team to contest neutral objectives and gank mid.

In team fights, stay behind your tanks and bruisers. Wait for enemies to use abilities, then dive in with your 1 and 2 to defeat squishies. Your global ult allows quickly joining a fight, even across the map. Look to ult in, secure a kill, then 3 out safely.

With practice, Chernobog can dominate games through intelligent rotations, objective secure, and team fight mastery. Play safe early, build stacks, then come online to wreak havoc on the map! By following these tips, you’ll be carrying your team to victory in no time.
