Tulen gets into the middle of the fray using lightning strike to unleash havoc on his enemies always stay away from Tulen if you are running low on health. Otherwise, you will soon fall prey to his ultimate Thunderbird allowing him to refresh all of his abilities for another deadly round of attacks.
Passive – Thunderclap
Whenever Tulen hits an enemy with an ability, he gains 1 charge of Thunderclap. After reaching 5 charges, he summons 5 lightning bolts that shoot out in sequence towards nearby enemies, prioritizing heroes. Each lightning bolt deals magic damage. If more than one lightning bolt hits the same target within 1 second, the damage dealt by the subsequent bolts will be reduced by 20%. The lightning bolts will only attack monsters if they’re in aggression mode.
Used as a strong her a stool for laning Tulen’s passive can also be used to clear up minion waves since damage dealt consecutive hits on the same target is reduced make sure you keep a distance with the enemy target while your passive is active so you won’t use all five charges at once.
Ability 1 – Ion Blasts
Tulen shoots three ion blasts, each dealing magic damage to enemies along its path. When enemies are hit by more than one blast, each additional hit will deal 30% damage. Each prism that hits an enemy will add 1 Thunderclap charge 1 charge per blast.
For maximum damage use, ion blasts as close to the enemy as possible to ensure that all three blasts hit thus giving Tulen three stacks of thunderclap to get him closer to activating his passive for even more damage.
Ability 2 – Lightning Strike
Tulen uses his lightning powers to zap a short distance, damaging enemies at the origin and destination. Enemies in the origin and destination areas will suffer magic damage. Enemies damaged by both the origin and the destination areas will receive 50% damage for the second hit. Enemies damaged by Lightning Strike twice within 5 seconds will have their movement speed reduced by 2%, gradually decreasing over the following 3 seconds. Each time Tulen teleport and hits an enemy, he will receive 1 charge of Thunderclap.
Tulen can store this ability up to 3 times cooldown between stored uses can be affected by items and arcana.
The lightning strike has a short distance it is an effective tool that can both damage and help Tulen pass through walls. To effectively zap use lightning strike next to the enemy to have the start and end point both hit the same target.Attention to maintaining a suitable distance between enemy keep the enemy in the center can double the damage.
Ultimate – Thunderbird
Tulen charges up and launches a Thunderbird at an enemy, dealing magic damage and giving Tulen 1 charge of Thunderclap. The Thunderbird can be blocked by another enemy hero getting in the way. If the Thunderbird kills an enemy hero, Tulen’s passive will be activated immediately and Thunderbird’s cooldown will be reduced by 3%. If the Thunderbird hits an enemy minion on the way to its final target, they will suffer magic damage and be knocked into the air. Tulen can also use Lightning Strike while charging Thunderbird.
Tulen’s passive is usually used to finish off low-health targets. However, if it gets blocked by the enemy hero before reaching the target. It’s basically left useless to avoid this first use lightning strike to help reposition Tulen to get around the enemy and complete the kill.
When playing Tulen here are some things to remember.
Tulen has many ways to combo skills together to be super effective. Try this one, use the second ability Lightning strike to get face to face with the enemy follow it up with the first ability ion blasts then use the second ability to slow the enemy Trigger the passive and use normal attacks to weaken the enemy at the end of the combo use your ultimate Thunderbird to finish off the enemy.
Combo sequence is 2 + 1 + 2 + 2 + ultimate.
Although ion blasts are great for poking leveling lightning strike can provide or damage and mobility. Although lightning strike allows Tulen to dash forward multiple times the short distance makes it difficult for Tulen to chase down an enemy or escape from a bad situation.
Because of this flicker is still a good idea to take as a talent to further supplement his mobility for both Ion blasts and lightning strike are great tools for clearing minion waves as they can get you stacks of thunderclap quickly thus increasing damage output.
“Thunder! At my beck and call!”
Tulen was a demigod born to the call of thunder and lightning. He was an extraordinary child, able to bend thunder and lightning to his will. The thunder Tulen created was a thousand times stronger than regular magic. Some would call it godlike. Ilumia the Seer saw fit to place him under the tutelage of Aleister in order to learn the intricacies of his powers.
Yet, the sly Aleister did not take a liking to Tulen. He sensed that Tulen would one day take his place, and thus decided he would teah Tylen nothing, not a sing spell. Unfortunately, for Aleister, this method of teaching worked in Tulen’s favor. His innate ability to control thunder allowed him to harness his powers without spells. While his vivid imagination propelled his powers to even greater heights.
Tulen’s success sent Aleister into a spiral that would eventually lead to his downfall. Tulen was not blind to his teacher’s ploy, however. He had no intention of taking Aleister’s place. Far from it. Yet, he also had no intention of giving anyone else the throne of thunder. He wanted the absolute freedom Aleister had…something a pupil like him would have great difficulties achieving.
Finally, Tulen descended upon the temple with his godlike thunder and wiped away his teacher’s sigil, burning his own upon the throne before stunned eyes. In so doing, he proved that he not only had the strength to take Aleister’s place, but the throne of thunder had already chosen him. Then, under Ilumia’s guidance, Tulen successfully ascended the throne of thunder.
His first task was to recapture the throne’s previous owner – his own teacher, Aleister, for without Aleister, Tulen only held the title without the power. Tulen understood that this near-impossible task was given to him to curb his wanton display of power, but he didn’t care.
“No one understands what I truly desire!”
