Riktor is a melee tank who specializes in crowd control. He's a powerful initiator who brings order to the battlefield by locking down targets and pacifying enemies.

Early game, Riktor should look for opportunities to disrupt the battlefield. "Riplash" is a skillshot that drags enemies hit straight to Riktor. This is a powerful tool that allows him to isolate unsuspecting victims. "Electrocute" will deal damage in an area around Riktor which is great to take on multiple enemies or clear out groups of minions. "Shock Therapy" will augment Riktor's basic attack allowing him to silence the next enemy he hits, allowing him to prevent enemies from escaping or to interrupt their abilities. And finally, with his ultimate "Skewer" Riktor can unleash a deadly web of chains that devastates and stuns enemies. A well timed Skewer could disrupt an enemy engagement and turn the tide of battle.

Approach fights with precision, you have a variety of control but that doesn't mean you should use it all at once. Wait for enemies to step out of line and pull them in with "Riplash". Once the enemy team engages use "Skewer" to shut them down while your team picks off your victim. Wait for a key target to begin using their ultimate and pacify them with "Shock Therapy".
