I assume he is fairly unpopular everywhere, especially for a new God so I started looking at him for that reason, found him fairly fun against bots. Have tried once against people did reasonable for the first go went positive.
Can anyone who plays him give advice about when, how to initiate and what to build please?
From the little I know, he hasn't got a decent escape, other than his ultimate which is difficult to hit the enemy with, especially 3 times, anyhow. I assume this is part of why he isn't played much although he seems fun.
I like to have some kind of defence on all my assassins, yes at the cost of a little power but the reward of survivabilty.
