Erekul is one of the strongest tanks in the entire game. A personal favorite of mine, his potential is through the roof and has some of the best skills in the game.

Item List

Start with a Duran's Pendant into either a Korhal Vanguard or Spell Buffer. Then go for a Parallax Generator and finish the rest of the final item list.

While some will argue that Erekul takes little to no skill, using him correctly requires good positioning because you need to cancel certain skills with your Ultimate. One example is when Jackson jumps in and tries to ult. A good Erekul must be in position to stop a Jackson ult or a Mandrake ult whenever necessary.

  • Use your Q sparingly unless you are being pelted by creeps. It has a decent cooldown.
  • Combo your Q with your R in order to secure kills. You can Q and then use R for the kill or vice versa.
  • Always use W on the most dangerous carry. It nullifies most of their damage.
  • Always stay moving, you need to have the best angle in order to deal and tank the most damage.
  • Your passive can automatically harass and even kill certain heroes. Try and chase low health heroes if you can because it can result in an easy kill.
