Key Insights
Easily camped pre-6 by current meta junglers, especially if he doesn't have cleanse.
Skill shot based champion so put on your dancing shoes.
Don't let him auto you with his passive
as it grants more mana from champions than minions.
has 3 barrages at level 6, and it increases by 1 every time it's leveled up.
While
can grant him mana back, he needs blue buff to abuse his range and poke potenial. Try to deny him from getting blue buff as much as possible early game.
Power Spike
First 20% CDR item allows him to constantly poke.
Starts to really hurt from high range during his 3 and 4 item power spikes.
is a huge power spike for him early game, as it allows him to wave clear quickly and constantly poke.
At 3 items, in any combination of

, or
, his long range poke will almost one shot targets or forces them out of the fight
Vulnerable
Huge window to aggressively trade with him if he wastes
or if you dodge it.
Due to his lack of mobility and nature of his kit, he'll mostly likely be pushed up in lane and vulnerable to ganks.
