Take advantage of Cthulhu’s ability to control, reduce damage and passive to create an advantage in teamfights.
Passive: Prey on Fear
With the final blow of his basic attack chain and stacks of Torment combined with abilities, Cthulhu weakens the mental strength of the enemy gods. Enemies suffer from Insanity after they have 4 stacks of Torment. Cthulhu also gets Magical Power for each enemy god with Insanity that is nearby.
Skill 1: Sanity Break
All foes impacted by Cthulhu’s terrible energy blast take damage and have their Attack Speed decreased. This ability also reduces Cthulhu’s damage taken from enemies it hits for 6 seconds. The adversary attacked by this ability receives 1 stack of Torment, 2 stacks if they are facing Cthulhu, or Fears them if they are insane. The base mitigation of this ability is increased by successfully eating Insanity.
Skill 2: The Mire
At the chosen place, Cthulhu conjures a portal that transforms the area into an eldritch mud that slows down. The Mire keeps expanding while Cthulhu channels, and the portal fires out two masses of corruption that impact and harm every enemy on the battlefield. A layer of Torment is applied to foes inflicted by both attacks, which additionally Slow and Root them. Early cancellation of the ability prevents The Mire from spreading or the gateway from firing further projectiles.
Skill 3: Rushing Terror
As he spreads his wings and dashes forward, Cthulhu produces two twisted bullets at his sides that damage, stun, and knock foes away. The bullets move slightly more slowly but farther, harming the adversaries as they do so. When Cthulhu or the projectiles hit an opponent, Torment is added to their stack.
Ultimate: Descend into Madness
As he plunges the battlefield into R’lyeh and damages any opponents caught in the area, Cthulhu displays his real form. In this guise, Cthulhu has more health, is immune to the effects of crowd control, and has access to new powers. Enemies get stacks of Torment close to Cthulhu, and their pace quickens if they are facing him. Sanity Break has negative effects on enemies as well, reducing the amount of damage they can do to Cthulhu.
