Sha Lin Paladins Tips
|Sha Lin looks awesome|
I think personally Sha Lin was and still is one of the hardest character I need to work with due to its accurate but slow arrows and movement. It takes about 1.5 seconds to pull the arrow to its fullest and release it. He doesn’t reload so that’s a big plus sign but the time it takes from the bow to travel towards an enemy takes about a second to hit from long distance which makes it difficult to hit enemies from a long range that are moving. Of course, the closer you are the faster the arrow travels but it gives you the risks of other Champions that would eliminate you on the spot or give you difficulty if you are up against Barik and other tanks.
|Shooting Arrows at this Spot at Frog Isle even when there’s no enemy coming because you know they would cross it eventually|
|After stunning enemy with Impaler Arrow and directly using Planted|
|Going invincible whilst in Heat Haze mode, every time I shoot an arrow a mirage comes up and if I go too close it reveals my presence|
Sha Lin Loadouts
This loadout gives me a good amount of speed, defense and offensive damage whilst using Planted. I’m pretty happpy with this one but I do would like hear for more suggestions. Speed is one of the most important factors for Sha Lin as he moves very slowly without Wanderlust. I’m quite happy with Recurve as my legendary card as it helps me draw out my bow quicker than before.
Level Wrecker first, then Haven, then move on to Life Rip. It’s all circumstantial really, if I have a hard time with a Damager or a Flanker I’d get Haven/Blast Shield to Level 2 first then the rest follow up.
I’d usually go for wrecker instead of Cauterize since Sha Lin takes a little time to shoot arrows and breaks shields very easily at level 2 when spamming Planted.
I’d normally get Haven but would change to blast shields if I’m up against enemies with splash damages like Drogoz, Bomb King or Pip in matches that have 3/2 of the enemies with Splash Damages. Though I have to say I am tempted use Blast Shields only to counter Eevie1 as well.
