Early Game

2 Options
1. Smiteless Blue Straight to Red Gank
2. One full clear, go b, buy boots and spirit stone. Then Go Gank Crazy.


Guide Top

Mid Game

With the tier 5 boots you will move very quickly making farming your jungle possible while ganking even more terrifying. At lvl 9 your saplings will one hit the 3 caster minions and will do a surprising amount of damage to champs. This is where you are the strongest so push that advantage. If you get a kill instead of the laner gank a different lane then come right back and get them a kill.


Guide Top

Late Game

You're a tanky Tree. If you are ahead and you have someone else to peel for your adc then you can dive in on the enemy team. If you are behind your ult and cc are vital to keeping your carrys alive. Don't be afraid to tank turret shots because, you will have so much armor.(your ult doesn't effect turret shots.

Skills

(PASSIVE) SAP MAGIC: 5 SPELLS CAST ANYWHERE NEAR MAO AND THEN YOU AUTO ONCE AND TO GET 7% OF YOUR HEALTH BACK. THIS USES ENEMY SPELLS AS WELL SO IN TEAM FIGHTS MAKE SURE TO AUTO ATTACK AS SOON AS THIS IS UP SO YOU GAIN YOUR LIFE BACK.

ARCANE SMASH: IT'S A KNOCK UP. YAY! WHEN KNOCKING THEM UP MAKE SURE AND AIM IT TOWARDS YOUR TEAM IF YOU CAN BECAUSE THE KNOCK UP PUSHES THEM A LITLLE BIT AND IT WILL PUSH THEM TOWARDS YOUR TEAM.

TWISTED ADVANCE: A ROOT ON A TREE.... WELL IT IS VERY USEFUL TO CATCH PEOPLE AS THEY RUN AWAY AND ALSO BEFORE THEY KNOW YOU ARE THERE. TIMIMG USING THIS SKILL IS VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE SAY YOU USE IT ON FIZZ THEN HE PLAYFUL TRICKSTERS AWAY. LEARN TO SAVE IT UNTIL THEY USE THERE ESCAPES SO YOU CAN CATCH UP. THAT WAY YOU CAN CC THEM MORE AND THE REST OF YOUR TEAM CAN JOIN YOU.

SAPLING TOSS: OK 2 THINGS
1. IT DEALS DAMAGE BOTH WHEN IT LANDS AND WHEN IT EXPLODES.
2. IT DEALS MORE DAMAGE WHEN IT EXPLODES.
SO YOU CAN SET A TRAP WHEN GANKING YOU COULD THROW IT AT THEM AND GET THE FIRST BIT OF DAMAGE AND THEN POSSIBLY GET THE SECOND HALVE OR YOU CAN PUT IT PAST THEM AND MAKE THEM WALK INTO IT CAUSING MORE DAMAGE AND MAKING THEM HESITATE.

VENGEFUL MAELSTROM: BEST ULT EVER. IT GIVES EVERYONE ON YOUR TEAM WHO IS IN THE ULT 20% DAMAGE REDUCTION(DOESN'T AFFECT TURRETS) WHEN YOU END THE CHANNEL IT EXPLODES DEALING DAMAGE TO EVERY ENEMY IN THE AREA. THE MANA COST IS STEEP BUT THE END RESULTS ARE TOTALLY WORTH IT.

I REALIZED MY CAPS LOCK WAS ON THE WHOLE TIME OH WELL.
