Notes and Nonsense
Reimu is your typical main character, and when you're playing a main character, you want it to be simple enough for beginners.
- Passive: Straightforward, attack, then start throwing your Q and W at the enemy.
- Q: Yin-Yang Orb is an interesting skill. Pretty similar to Ziggs' Bouncing Bombs, the closer you throw the orb, the shorter the range. This lets Reimu players decide: "Should I maximize my damage potential by throwing it close? Or should I throw it far so to maximize my damage area and safety?" The light knockup this skill has on the first hit and the slow on the 2nd allows good Reimu players to do decent CC and allows great Reimu players to land Yin-Yang effectively.
- W: Fantasy Seal is effectively a delayed semi-situational burst nuke, and can also be used as a pretty effective zoning tool. Want to rushdown Reimu? Make sure Fantasy seal isn't on cooldown or you'll be eating a ton of damage. Fantasy Seal however is a pretty poor skill for chasing down enemies, as they'll disappear in a short amount of time and the projectiles are slightly slower than Lux's Light Binding.
- E: Duplex Border is your support ability. Enemy bruisers whacking down you or the ad carry? Fear not, you have a temporary anti-AD shield. Enemy mages wrecking havoc? Want to butter their tanks? Silence them for 3 seconds while removing magic resist. It doesn't do damage, but the utility it provides is a pretty decent support skill.
- R: Demon Binding Circle is pretty much "Press R for multipurpose teamfight forcefield". It deals okay damage if enemies are nearby (nowhere near Katarina/ Fiddlesticks level though) while providing decent defenses (again, nowhere near Maokai's level) The circle stays at the place Reimu casts, for a certain time, so good Reimu players should plan where the circle should be to maximize both utility and damage, as the field itself doesn't prevent anyone from running away.
Theoretical Item Build:
- You can play a keep away game with Reimu's kit. It's very hard to chase a Reimu without taking medium-heavy damage from releasing W and throwing Q to zone enemy chasers. Even if you manage to get close to Reimu, it is still a pretty dangerous thing to do. Close range Q, W and E will deal crazy hurt should you step too close witout preparation. On the other hand, Reimu herself must be close to maximize Q and W's power, or she'll have to support the front lines with her E and R. Playing Reimu effectively means knowing when to get near the enemy, which target should you apply the E on, and where to place your ultimate. Overall, her kit is designed to be easy to use, moderately-hard to master, just like Reimu herself, who has a lot of potential, just that she should at least put some effort. --Mineko Charat Lucky (talk) 18:14, December 10, 2012 (UTC)
