How to Play Juniper?
Juniper is one of the Powerful early-game heroes in Honor of Kings, 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. So, try to land her 1st skill to trade in the lane. If the enemy is low enough, try to land your 2nd skill, which will dodge all their damage. Then use your ult to finish them off.
Juniper is best against physical damage dealing assassin, so try to pick her if there is one in the opponent. You should save your 2nd skill during the late game so that when an assassin jumps on you, you can easily dodge their burst damage. Although Juniper counters physical damage-dealing Assassins, she is vulnerable to magical damage-dealing Assassins. So, pick some magic defense during the late game to remain safe. She also lacks mobility, so save your flash for the objective fight to escape the enemy rush.
