Pros: the 2nd better survival in game. very good against mages. Contros: not good as first adc carry. very weak if stunned or silenced. Skill description: 1) Predator: Kortav disappears from sight and reappears behind his target, leaving a decoy where he was previously. EFFECT: if the decoy is not destroyed within 5 seconds, it explodes and slows all nearby enemies by 30 % for 3 sec. NOTE: it can be used on your soldier or on your allies. 2) Piercing claw: Kortav focuses his deadly claws on on his target's weak point. ADDITIONAL EFFECT: using this skill from behind the target causes 3 % of the target's max hp as additional damage, and heals Kortav for 20 % of the total damage inflicted. 3) Rend & Tear: Kortav further rends is enemies' open wounds, leaving them bleeding heavily. EFFECT: reduces target's movement speed by 15 % for 3,5 seconds. deals 7 damage for each meter the target moves within 8 seconds. A target that moves 15 or more meters is stunned for 1 second. Ulti) Cruel intentions: Passive: Kortav regenerates 1 % of his maximum hp every second while below 30 % hp Active: Kortav slips into the shadows, becoming invisible and leaving a decoy on the ground. If the decoy is not destroyed within 5 seconds, it explodes and slows all nearby enemies by 30 % for 3 sec. Skill build: 1,2,3(kortav needs all of his skill to work well),2,2,ulti,2,3,ulti,3,3,ulti,1,1,1. Talent build: Support: 5 quikenrun. Guardian: 3 resilient, 2 toughness and 3 fasterhealer. fighter: 4 sharp, 5 proficient, 5 sharpen, 5 armor busting, 3 find weakness, 1 fatal damage, 3 siphon and 1 biting. I think that this talent build is the best because it is more focused on survival that on pure damage. Guardian talents works very well with your ulti and this allows you to stay more on battlefield so MORE EXP and GOLD>MORE STRONG. Tablets: Immortality: a MUST have it helps with your ulti,your harvest and with your 2nd skill. Bloodlust: it guarantees a very good damage. Purity: more tankinsness (again MORE SURVAVAL>MORE EXP and GOLD>MORE STRONG). Wispering less mana Kortav is the ungrier fighter of mana (it is also a good alternative for bloodlust in 3 vs 3). It used to play on train map with immortality, bloodlust and purity (I'm a purity lover for me it is one of the best tablets in game). Iscription: Chaos: torture Order: destruction and wind. Item build: 1) starts with 2 squirrel. 2) boots. 3) (if the game is quite i buy vampire teeth it helps a lot with farming and survival if the game has a lot of kills both ways buy 1 facebreaker). 4) buy what you haven't bought at point 3. 5) another facebreaker. 6) wings of paradise. 7) sell the squirrels and buy akhan saber. 8) finish savage boots. 9) finish jade axe. 10) facebreaker. 11) finish akahn cutlass. 12) finish divinity sword. 13) buy minotaur mask. 14) you can choose within hades armor for + hp + fdef and his passive or draconican blood mask for + hp regen and healed faster by your passive both are good. 15) sell vampire ( you can say that it isn't a good item,but for me it works very good i buy it early game and sell only if i haven't more space for my final build. 16) situational item: at this point of the game i build it basing on my teamates and on other team: you can choose between: another cutlass ( it will bring your attack speed to 2,48 perfect!) good against mages and if you have a good pure tank in team. another defensive item or what you haven't builded on 14 point or farseeth cloat against goroshia or king errant's cloat against sia and balondis. Longbow of shadows against tanks ( for fighting jombra and cyclops king errant is better because if you cast your 1 skill correctly you can escape from jombra's ulti and before 2nd hit of polithemus ulti the only thing that you need is a near ally on whitch use your 1st skill) or fighter that have builded an armor. Questions: Why kortav isn't good as first adc carry? Because every kortav should be a bit codard. Kortav can be a good fighter, but he is made up for chasing and escaping very fast, so when you think that you'll die decoy and escape (attention on farseeing tonic). For your skill combo you have to lern the distinction between running enemies-fighting enemies: For running enemies the best combo is 1,3,2 in the most part of fight they are: goldfur, gaia, arcane, guervus, machry, mystic, dailiana, evistix, nuut, aria, elf, savaer, klinth, lathier, demonlord, battlemage and clip. For fighting enemies the best combo is 1,2, ( 3 if they try to escape or 4 if you need 1-3 second of heal of your ulti) in the most part of the fights they are:kotun, jombra, erefern, rockfist, 12 b, balondis, valox, pally, cyclops, reega, acridix, mingrove, goroshia, arpy, doom profet, akartu, sand, reborn, chameleon, inqui, demon, helmm, minotaur, sia. Of course it's only a my statistic and it depends of the player himself!!! ATTENTION: Mingrove: starts to run only because he wants space between him and you then i'll get back on track. Give attention on his slows. Balondis': silece can be your death ,because you cannot escape with your skills don't carry him if you not sure that you'll defeate him. Goroshia: many goroshia use their ulti when you try to use your first kill so trolling method: when you are adhering him immidiatly stop and if you're lucky he will waste his ulti. inqui: CLONES RECARGE INTENSITY AND HIS INTESITY WILL ADHERE YOU AND NOT YOUR CLONES!!! the only way to defeat him (if escaping isn't possible) is put your ulti and wait in brushes, debronee's intensity on it then 1rst skill 3rd skill (2nd if he try to run) and normal attack ( you must be very fast you have only 3 sec!). Sia: your worst nightmare escaping from her is very very difficult carrying her is very difficult you have only 10 % of chances to defeat her try only if you have more than 2 lvl diffence. Clip and klinth: are categorized like running enemies ( and catching them is almost impossible).It is untrue if they are in company. Keep attention to brushes and keep attention they can see you when you are invisible so your clones don't work on them. Paladin: he is op you have no chance against him from 3 reasons: 1 he surpasses your survability (the only hero), 2 your slow/stun is really easy to avoid by his ulti and 3 has better defence and better attack. Doom prophet: he is very good against kortav, the only thing that i suggest is fight you cannot avoid his combo stunk silence so fight, if the silence finishes escape. Sand: i suggest 1rst skill 2nd skill combo and fight within dead you will not able to escape from his ultimate. Demonhunter: his my worst problem always i use the combo 1rst 2nd and auto-attack result he opens me like a can (he is the only ranged adc that don't run,in facts he starts attacking). If you have any question comment the tread. That's all folks.Gl and enjoy a lot with him.
