Badang is a flexible fighter who's good at ganking and has just enough escaping abilities. Partner him up with heroes like Grock and Minsitthar, and his skills can dominate any lane.
Badang gathers all his strength to perform an overwhelming fist wind. It deals Physical Damage to a designated area and slows down enemies. This skill will explode when hitting the wall and deal extra damage. Qigong Fist is considered a basic attack, so if you have life steal items, it will definitely work, and it also adds one stack for his passive.
This is Badang's core skill; it will make him dash in the designated direction. If he hits any enemies, it will deal damage and create a wall around the target. To increase the hit rate of this skill, use "Qigong Fist" first to slow the enemies down. This skill can deal damage twice. The first damage is dealt when he hits the enemy, and the second is dealt when the enemy collides with the wall. Using this on minions and monsters can only deal damage.
Fist Crack is like throwing many "Qigong Fists" that deal damage to all enemies in the area and will also explode upon impact with a wall. This skill can trigger basic attack effects like Life Steal, Critical hits, DHS passive, etc. During the execution of the skill, Badang will have a shield that absorbs up to 1000 damage (it bases with his total physical attack) and makes him immune to control effects. You can cancel this skill immediately when you are in trouble by simply moving or using another skill.
Each basic attack of this skill will create a stack, and after the 4th basic attack, the 5th will gain an enhancement that lasts for 6 seconds. It deals high damage and the knock-back effect, and if enemies collide with a wall, they will be stunned. Use the control effect with Fist Break to slay enemies with ease.
Take note that this can damage your enemies in the line, same as the skill mechanism of Moskov. This also works on minions and monsters, and they will be stunned immediately.
Recommended Battle Spells
I highly recommend this because he can use Flicker+Ultimate combo. This can also be used for ambushing or escaping from enemies.
This can increase his Ultimate's shield.
This can help Badang to farm faster in early game.
Select talent points on "Physical Attack" and "Attack Speed." Then choose "Disabling Strike" talent, this will increase the physical attack and has a slow down effect after using first skill. This custom emblem set gives more emphasis on Badang's attack and ensures damage in team fights. This suits "Quigong Fist" because it can build an advantage in the early game.
Another option is Physical Emblem if you don't have Fighter emblem. Use the talent points for "HP" and "Attack Speed." Then choose "Open Fire," this will increase physical attack after using a skill.
- Combo 1 (Surprise Attack): 2nd skill + 1st skill + Fist Crack
- Combo 2 (Wall advantage): 1st skill + Fist Crack + 2nd skill
- Super Combo: 1st skill + 2nd skill + Basic Attack (Chivalry Fist) + Fist Crack
- Optional Combo (No Ultimate): 2nd skill + Basic Attack (Chivalry Fist) + 1st skill
I think he's a pretty cool hero, although he lacks cc and slow-down effects. He can block heroes from escaping or chasing your allies if you're trying to save them. The best partner for him is Grock; he can also create walls to increase skill hit rates for his passive effect. Minsitthar is good as well; his Ultimate can stop high-mobility heroes that are difficult for Badang.
Keep in mind that Badang is weak against heroes like Lancelot, Chou, Martis, and Akai. They have multiple crowd control skills and high mobility which is hard to catch, and their skills can cancel his ultimate. If you are in a ranked game make sure to be very careful or avoid these guys.
