Tips and Tricks
Chen can purchase Smoke of Deceit early to sneak up on a gank without being seen by wards.
Chen should block a lane, typically mid, at the start of the game while waiting for neutral creeps to spawn, and then try to harass if he can.
Since Holy Persuasion enables Chen to influence a neutral creep to do his bidding, he is typically used as a jungler.
Prior to casting Hand of God, try to place allies within the Divine Favor AoE so they can take advantage of the heal amplification.
Penitence increases the assault speed of towers and ward-type units (such as the Death Ward of the Witch Doctor and the Serpent Wards of the Shadow Shaman).
Allies can be targeted by and banished by the ranged Satyr’s purge.
Makes friends attack an opponent unit more swiftly and forces it to move more slowly. Chen has a +2 attack range and can attack the Penitence target.
Chen assumes control of a hostile or impartial creep and is paid with gold equivalent to the creep’s reward. The basic health of the persuaded creep will be increased to the health minimum if it is already below that level due to natural causes. Creeps that have been converted will move more quickly and deal bonus damage.
may be used to teleport transformed creeps to Chen. All Chen-controlled units will be teleported to him if the spell is cast on him. The boost will end if you take any damage.
Provides an aura that passively increases armor and health restoration.
