How to Play Judge Dee in HoK? His PlayStyle

Judge Dee, Di Renjie, is pretty easy to play the hero in Honor of Kings, but you need a better understanding to master him properly. His skill 1 deals good damage in the early game. He also has pretty good damage through his auto attacks. 

  1. So try to trade with your auto attacks and land your 1st skill properly to win the trade in the early game. 
  2. Your second skill is the main part of your kit. It can remove every debuff, such as stun which will be very useful if the enemy has cc, which can catch you off guard. But, you must have good reflexes to time his second skill to avoid the cc. Therefore, always be aware of enemy cc and press 2nd skill immediately after you see some cc coming at you. It is hard, but it will start getting easy with some practice. 
  3. It is a skill shot for the ult, and you must predict the enemy’s movement to land it. You can ult the enemy assassin coming at you to stun them so that your team can peel for you while the Assassin is stunned. 
  4. You can also use the ult of Di Renjie to engage in team fights if you can land it in enemy carry. 
  5. You can also ult tanks as your ult reduces physical and magical defence, and it will be pretty easy for your team to kill them. 
  6. Judge Dee is easy to play, and with a good understanding of the game, you can use his carry potential to the max.
