Brine is a very strong initiator in the early phase of the game and becomes a very strong counter-initiator later in the game.
|Final Item List|
Brine is one of the most potent initiators and early game bullies in the game. His stun creates so many opportunities for ganks it is disgusting. Later when he gets his Ultimate, there is very little the other team can do before they get dragged halfway across the screen.
- Always use your Q. It is free damage and free slows. Whenever it is up you should try and use it.
- Your W is a lifesaver, make sure you use it whenever you want to initiate for the speed boost or to escape so you don't die a horrible death.
- Make sure you drag people with your E or else it doesn't do any damage. There are very few situations where you do not want to drag the opponent and even then it is up to your teammates to time and land their skill shots with the drag.
- Use your R in places where the enemy do not have vision so they do not expect it coming. When you realize that there are Truesight Wards around, get a scan and get rid of them or else you will never get a burrowed gank off.
