Little Lute (Cai Yan)
|Team Fight Position||Back Row|
|Crimson/Azure Golem||No Requirement|
The pure and kind-hearted Cai Yan always brings laughter and joy to the people around her. Although she lost her father at an early age, she grew up very much loved by Dian Wei and her foster father, Cao Cao. However, when the truth behind past events was revealed and her foster father showed her true colours, she was forced to flee what she thought was her home.
No matter her sufferings and predicaments, she never lost sight of herself, she continues to face this complicated world with a smile. As she flies across the battlefield, she uses her music to inspire and strengthen everyone.
Little Lute is a support hero in HoK who has cc and massive healing on her kit. She heals like crazy if you build the antiheal to stop her. Little Lute is the best support on both higher and low-tier ranks if opponents do not come with anti-heal. She may seem like a support, but she also has damage when she reaches late game as she goes magic items mostly. Overall, a good Little Lute player plays really well around her carry and helps them carry the game more efficiently in Honor of Kings.
