Early Game

Make sure you buy a roam item and choose Conceal as the blessing. Conceal helps you gain a movement speed and makes you invisible for a short period of time. Taking the roam item will help your team gain gold and level up faster. As a tank, you already have enough sustaining HP for the early phase. Guard the buffs and check bushes often.

Mid Game

The turtle would have already respawned and it is the right time now to help your jungler contest for the turtle. Check the nearby areas and provide a vision for your teammates to secure the turtle. In addition, make sure to ping in the minimap for a potential gank from the enemy side. 

Late Game

If the Lord is up and your team is enough fed, try to set up traps in the bush while using your Flicker-Conceal-Ultimate combo. The best way to execute is by using the Conceal and quickly heading towards the enemy and using the Flicker-Ultimate combo to instantly trap the enemy around you. Always protect your hyper or carry as it’s the most vulnerable role in your team.
