    How to play with an aphro on your team

    1. Its not aprhos job only to postion her self so that your kiss connects when she cast it
    2. Its not aphros job onlyy to stay close to you in order to heal you, its a privilegium to be healed by her, its not her job because she is some kind of support.
    3. Aprho cant heal every problem, so you dont have to position yourself in stupid places or tant more hits than normal cause you feel more comfortable

    Thank you for this lession and become a better player

    Some of the issues I encounter playing as Aphrodite are:
    1. Low health team mates juking my kiss. How can I heal you if you keep avoiding my kiss and heals?
    2. Player who constantly dive a whole team or objective by himself and breaking the link between Aphro and himself. You basically dived to your death. I couldn't heal you, use my Ult to protect you, and knock back attacking enemies off your back.
    3. Players who take mana buff from Aphro in Arena. If Aphrodite has mana buff, it's not only her who benefits but her soulmate as well. It's pretty much like 2 people getting the mana buff.

    Many players don't understand the dynamics of Aphrodite's kit and how to take advantage of the benefits they provide. Breaking the link will result in you losing additional Movement Speed, additional damage if she kisses an enemy, her heals, her ult which is pretty much an aegis and beads rolled into one, her knockback/slow, etc.

    I feel your pain and the frustration, Glorfindal. I get that everyday when I play Aphrodite or Hel. Sometimes it feels like your fellow team mates are really sabotaging your games. And most of the time, after going through all the troubles keeping them alive, you don't even get a thank you.

    A thank you for what? Doing your job as a healer. Do you thank guardians? Do you thank adc for carrying the team. Do you thank assassins for just ksing? Do you thank grocery store clerks for ringing up your purchase?

    How to play with an Aphro?
    Be as reckless as possible that will make her stay linked to you.
    Walk into line of sight of any other low teammate. She is there to heal you not them.
    She has infinite mana and cooldown so if she isn't healing you she is lazy.
    If you are low on health spam help you are her only priority.
    If you die no matter what it is her fault.

    Atleast I believe that to be thought process of most pugs.

    I do love it when a teammate will get hit be very telegraphed attacks yet can dodge a heal.

    I do, actually. I do thank my support when he saves my ass. I do congratulate my ADC and jungler for securing kills or just doing well. It's called being polite.

    Aphro players don't get the respect they deserve. Or the protections. You can be a diamond rank Aphro in joust and still get that team that doesnt block for her and she's now 0/7 and 3 levels down... YOU GUYS WERE KUZEMBO AND ANHUR FFS!

    Sorry Apro-nam flashback
    Ares stole Aphrodite from Hephaestus
    Ares killed Poseidon's son for rape and was aquited for murder
    Ares is both the Father AND Grandfather of the Amazons. Feel free to "EWWW"
    Ares turned a guard that failed to anounce Helios into a rooster
    Ares supported Trojans. Ares has a ton of kids

    tbh aphro players are both terrible and expect way too much out of their team, if we go by that mentality it's not a Poseidon's job to kraken or an Isis' job to secure the fg no?

    When I play Aphrodite, I actually tend to be somewhat unflexible when it comes to healing. I have one or two players I try to be linked with constantly, usually the frontliners or the carries and then just play the game dealing as much damage and applying as much CC in conjunction with them as possible.

    Aphrodite is no goddess that can heal everyone anytime nor should she be treated as such.

    She also has way too much damage and utility for reducing her to that.
