How to play Balmond:

Use skill 1 (Soul Lock) to blink, slightly knocking back and slowing that enemy.

Use skill 2 (Cyclone Sweep) to deal physical damage to nearby enemies.

Use skill 3 (Lethal Counter) will help a lot in team fight.


Early game (Level 1-7): Balmond is really strong in the early game. If you cleared the line and the jungle, you may visit other lanes to help them kill or to push.

Mid game (Level 8-12: You can begin pushing lanes and killing turtles. You can now engage with team fights because you are now durable. If you are going solo please be careful, always check the map.

Early game (level 1-7): You are now very tanky at this point. You can now endure the attacks and skills of the enemy team while dealing some damage. Make sure that you live after the team fight so you could push and win.
