How to be the Bomb

1. Remember that your passive charges faster when casting abilities, so spam them near a turret to get your passive quick and take down those pile of stones.

2. Be sure to NEVER waste Mega Inferno BombMega Inferno Bomb before  jungle objectives. Your damage and AOE will put the brakes on any team trying to take them.

3.Use Hexplosive MinefieldHexplosive Minefield to block entrances or give vision, as the bombs will linger for quite some time.

4. If the enemy has a good engage or an assasin, try to save Satchel ChargeSatchel Charge for an escape plan. This ability can also be used to get you over walls.

5. Don't have a short fuse despite all the bombing, you need to stay focused and sharp.
