Choosing Your Lane

Aegislash DMG allows him to clear the jungle pretty simply. In addition, Aegislash's abilities are excellent to set ganks.

Therefore, the best lane for Aegislash is the middle lane, often putting pressure on the squishy characters.

Early Game

Aegislash is not very tanky. Trainers require to farm fast to acquire the first initial moves. We recommend joining the battle after the enemy uses their hindrances.

Option A: Sacred Sword

  • Level 5: Aegislash thrusts its blade into the ground, creating a triangular zone. This zone erupts with hidden power, damaging enemies in the area and throwing them.
  • Also increases boost count by 1 for each enemy hit (capped at 2 for wilds, 4 for players). At the same time as the eruption, Aegislash slashes forward, dealing additional damage to enemies hit.
  • For a short time after this slash hits, damage dealt by Aegislash partially ignores the Defense of all enemies.

Interesting move with a big DMG and long-range, the dash forward and low Cooldown will allow Aegislash to chase and finalize enemies.


Option A: Wide Guard

  • Level 7: Focus in place for a short time to create a great shield on Aegislash. When this shield appears, boost count increases by 1, granting a shield to Aegislash and shoves enemies in front.
  • While this shield is active, enemy player attacks increase boost count by 1 for each different enemy player (capping at 4).
  • When this move ends, shove enemies in front of Aegislash once again.

The move punish enemies for attacking Aegislash. The more attacks Aegislash receives, his attack becomes stronger. The ability cap is in 4 so make sure to time your moves accordingly.

Late Game

Aegislash Unite Move is not very flashy. However, it is the slash necessary to secure objectives and finalize enemies.

Unite Move: Coup de Grace

  • Level 9: Unleash a ground-splitting slash in the designated direction, dealing damage to enemies hit.
  • The lower their remaining HP, the more damage this move deals. If this slash knocks out an enemy, boost count increases by 1.
