Chaac the God of Rain is the classic lane bully that can run you down and heal while he’s doing it. His kit allows you to maintain a huge amount of zone while in any game mode because of the huge circle abilities that in his kit.
- Ability 1
- Ability 2
- Ability 3
After 5 successful Basic Attacks, the next ability Chaac uses costs no Mana and has its cooldown reduced by 2s.
Chaac throws his axe forward, damaging all enemies in a radius around its landing location. The axe remains idle in the ground for 5s or until another ability is used.
- Damage: 80/140/200/260/320 (+60% of your Physical Power)
Chaac spins his axe around him, damaging all enemies, and gaining Protections for each enemy hit (max. 5). If his axe is out from Thunder Strike, he will first dash to the axe location, doing 50% base damage to enemies he passes through and then executing his spin attack. This dash can go through walls.
- Damage: 100/150/200/250/300 (+70% of your Physical Power)
- Protections: 4/8/12/16/20
- Protection Duration: 4s
Chaac summons a rainstorm around his current location for 6s. While it rains, he regains Health, and enemies are caught in the mud and have their Movement Speed and Attack Speed reduced. If his axe is out from Thunder Strike, a rainstorm will also spawn at that location. Enemies caught in the area of both rainstorms will have the Movement Slow and Attack Speed Reduction applied twice.
- Slow: 20/25/30/35/40%
- Attack Speed Reduction: 5/10/15/20/25%
- Healing: 10/15/20/25/30 (+15% of your Physical Power) every 0.5s
Chaac charges his lightning axe and unleashes a blast, Silencing, Knocking Up and damaging all enemies around him. While in the air, Chaac has 50% Damage Mitigation and is immune to Crowd Control effects.
- Damage: 250/300/350/400/450 (120% of your Physical Power)
- Silence Duration: 3s
Use Chaac’s thunderstrike ability to clear the wave early on so that way you can focus on the enemy god. Once you cast thunderstrike, you have a decision to make with Chaac. You can do more damage to the wave or enemy god by using Torrent to teleport to the axe. However, once you can full clear the wave easily then it is better to cast Rain Dance to heal and box the enemy god.
Remember, Rain Dance heals you and slows down the enemy god which is great for boxing and pushing the lane. Mid to late game, use Storm Call to zone out the enemy damage carries and silence them so your team can initiate freely.
In recent patches Chaac has gotten multiple buffs to increase his viability. Rain Dance now slows the enemy auto attack speed. In addition, any ability that is used from his passive now has 2 seconds shaved off the cooldown.
Pros and Cons List:
Great lane pressure, tanky, zone control
Falls off late game, countered by anti-heal
Round shield, Health Chalice, and 3 health pots with teleport as your relic.
Full Build: (Left to Right)
Late Game: swap Gladiator’s shield for Void Shield or Oni Hunter’s Garb.
Fun build: Swap Hide of Nemean Lion for Midgardian Mail to stack the Rain Dance slow and the Midgardian passive. Swap Gladiator’s shield for Shield of Regrowth to gain movement speed from rain dance.
Chaac’s strength comes from his ability to control zones either in lane or during a team fight. While you’re boxing in lane you can use the thunderstrike and rain dance combo to give yourself the advantage. It’s also great to slow the enemy hunter’s attack speed while initiating a fight. Less apparent is during a team fight if your team is running away you can use the Rain Dance combo to slow down enemy gods while you retreat. If your team is securing an objective, you can cast your ultimate to make sure the enemy mage or hunter can’t cast abilities to steal it.
