Juniper, Consort Yu, is a girl at one with the forces of nature, brave and beautiful. Every bolt from her crossbows radiates the blessing of the forest. Acting upon her mentor’s orders, she embarked on a journey to explore the world around her. And in the process, she fell in love with the heroic Xiang Yu.

However, she was warned by her senior, Zhang Liang, that the person she had fallen in love with was the dark master from the prophecies. Brokenhearted and resigned to her fate, Consort Yu sent one of her bolts piercing through her lover’s heart. Tragically, it was only after the deed was done that the illusion shattered, and she realized that the person she had spoken to was not Zhang Liang, but someone disguised as him.

Juniper is a Marksman in HoK who can literally dodge the auto attacks for a certain period during her 2nd skill. She is the most fun-to-play hero as she counters most heroes with her physical attacks. Also, she is a good hero for the early game as her 1st skill deals a lot of damage. It is easy to play Juniper, but you need to know when to use your skills.

How to Play Her? Strategy Guide 

Juniper is a massively Strong early game hero, as she can deal lots of damage with her 1st skill, dodge any physical damage with her 2nd skill and stun with her 3rd skill. Here are some strategic ways to master Juniper in Honor of Kings to get the maximum performance out of her and counter Hard opponents:

  1. Try to land her 1st skill to trade in the lane, and if the enemy is low enough, try to all in by using your 2nd skill, which will dodge all their damage, then use your ult to finish them off. 
  2. She is a good hero against physical damage-dealing assassins, so try to pick her if there is one in the opponent. 
  3. You should save your 2nd skill during the late game so that when the assassin jumps on you, you can easily dodge their burst damage. 
  4. Although she counters physical damage-dealing assassins, she is highly vulnerable to magical damage-dealing assassins. Therefore, if there are assassins in the opponent, build some magic defence for Juniper during the late game. 
  5. Juniper also lacks mobility, so save your flash for the objective fight to survive the danger quickly. 
Juniper Combo

Since Juniper is a marksman and her main damage output comes from her auto attacks and skill 1, try to position her properly to land skill 1 and auto-attack as much as possible.

Juniper(Consort Yu) Items/Equipments Build

Go for Boots of Dexterity as the first best equipment for Juniper build to boost up attack speed early game. If the enemy has lots of CC, go for boots of resistance. Then go for items that give you physical damage and can boost up your early-game damage. Then go for crit damage so that it boosts your damage even more, and if the enemy has lots of armor, go for physical pierce. 

You already have 2nd skill to block the physical damage, but you are weak to magic damage. Magic defence also works well on the build of Juniper if the enemy has lots of magic damage. Overall, here is the Ideal Juniper build to use in the most situation in Honor of Kings:

Juniper Spell:

Juniper Spell

Flash is the best spell for Juniper in HoK, as she lacks mobility and needs to escape danger quickly. Use your second skill first if the physical damage-dealing assassin is coming, and use your flash, which gives your team enough time to kill the enemy Assassin.

Juniper Counters

Juniper, Consort Yu, is pretty easy to kill as she lacks mobility in her kit. Although she counters physical damage-dealing assassins, it is pretty easy to bait out her 2nd skill and go all in on her. A good assassin player always waits for the important skill of marksman to be used and goes all in, so you should also do that for her. If you have flash, go all in her. But if you don’t, wait for her to see her flash and move on. Here are some best heroes in Honor of Kings who can counter Juniper easily:
