Crow Strategy 101

Crow is another cone-shot style brawler with a few interesting effects built in. Most notably, his attacks deal base damage, but then also deal more damage in the form of poison that stays with the enemy. Similar to Tara in his main attack and his assassin playstyle, Crow really excels in chip damage.

He doesn’t do huge burst damage like a Bull, but his slow steady damage really keeps an enemy team weak and vulnerable to being picked off by your teammates. When playing crow try to stay alive, while dealing as much consistent damage as possible, you will find once you become effective with Crow, that you can keep the entire enemy team at low health most of the time.

This is your priority, and how you are going to sway games in your team’s favor.

Playing this slow assassin style will charge your super quickly, as you will be damaging a lot of enemies. When your super is ready, you will be able to truly become the assassin, leaping in the air and landing with arrows flying in all directions, you will be able to close gaps and finish off fleeing enemies.

Try to focus key targets with these attacks, an enemy gem carrier, or the ball carrier are great targets to land on and kill.

Similar to El Primo’s elbow, getting the timing and prediction of enemy movement will take a little practice, but because of the arrows that shoot out, unlike Primo, even a miss will likely do the job for you. Just be careful you don’t get caught close up by a big brawler, Crow has low HP and is very squishy.

However, Crow is also very fast, and his range is long, so kiting is going to be the best way to deal with brawlers that want to get up close with you, just keep them at a distance and you will win or escape from most 1v1 fights.
