Ne Zha Guide

Ne Zha excels in the solo lane where he can overwhelm opponents and gain an early lead. Focus on clearing waves quickly with Ring Toss then harassing the enemy solo laner with basics and Armillary Sash. Save Flaming Spear for kills or escaping ganks. Play aggressively to dominate your lane opponent and deny them farm.

In team fights, Ne Zha eliminates enemy squishies like mages and hunters. Look for opportunities to sash targets after escape abilities are down. Obliterate them with Universe Ring Toss. Your ultimate also provides crowd control immunity, so don’t hesitate to use defensively when focused. Alert your team to focus whoever you grab. With key enemies defeated, you’ll win most fights.

Ne Zha’s abilities work well together for high burst damage. Armillary Sash engages, chases, peels and disengages. Ring Toss deals huge damage, so open with it when ganking or in fights. Flaming Spear provides power, crit chance and attack speed; keep it on cooldown in combat. A typical combo is Ring Toss, basic attack, Armillary Sash, 2 basics, Flaming Spear, basic, Universe Ring Toss. Practice timing the ultimate to land consistently.
